  • Feature Diving Down The Rabbit Hole With Japan's Arcade-Based Trading Card Games

    It's in the cards

    Tourists dropping in on Japan’s arcades are often surprised. Western arcades have stuck to a familiar trajectory, running last-decade machines form last-century franchises: OutRun 2, After Burner Climax, Time Crisis 4…. The games we’re used to are easygoing, fun and friendly, with a warm welcome and a wave goodbye. It’s not...

    Review Ikaruga

    “Even though the ideal is high, I never give in”

In fact, it played like no shmup before it and even...
