Cut people up wherever you please!

Ubisoft? They listen to their fans, they say. And a big thing people whined and moaned about in Red Steel was how the katana worked.

New WiiWare title set to hit Japan...next week?

What's old is new again. Again. Capcom kick-started the whole retro-sequel shenanigans last year with the stellar Mega Man 9, and Konami tried it's hand with the awkwardly-capitalized and underwhelming Gradius ReBirth too.
