The First Thirty Minutes Of The Best 3DS Action Game You've Never Played

That's E.X. Troopers, by the way

"Like Lost Planet, but anime" could easily have been the most cynical boardroom pitch ever, but thankfully Capcom couldn't have any poured any more love into E.X. Troopers if it had tried.

Project X Zone Price Slashed To $20 On The North American 3DS eShop

Role-playing on a budget
