Boston FIG is getting ready to get its game-on, with an announcement of marathon proportions!

How do you categorize Asura's Wrath? Is it a video game with anime-based qualities, or is it the other way around? While going hands-on the full version of CyberConnect2's creation I found myself watching what was happening on the screen rather than playing it. If this was your average run-of-the-mill game that would be a problem. Fortunately Asura's Wrath is anything but average.

Our friends over at Western Mass MMA have hooked us up with a report on the recent fights at the Warrior Nation XFA event that happened on August 24, 2012. Read on and click their link to check out more of what they had to say about the event.

NO!!! This game isn't about racing your damn Toyota Prius hybrid around on a track. This is a close-quarters battle in a post-apocalyptic world. Hybrid is an Xbox Live Arcade exclusive, so if you don't have a Xbox 360, you are S.O.L.!

Recently added to Netflix, The Hunter has William Dafoe (Boondock Saints) and Sam Neil (Jurassic Park) as the main characters in this pretty amazing film.

The mere utterance of Shinichiro Watanabe in the anime world will send hundreds of thousands of otaku to their nearest TV set or computer to watch his next work. The Quentin Tarantino of animation Watanabe is a man with a trademark style and a patented branding of badassery. When word got out that Watanabe was to reunite with his Cowboy Bebop cohort Yoko Kanno in a new series the sound of buzzing transformed itself into a roar of anticipation. This past spring the show made its premiere in Japan and on Crunchyroll: Kids on the Slope.


He speaks softly, but carry the biggest stick out there. Although this is an over-the-top basis of the real person Tommy Slick who got into a fight on a public transit bus, Danny Trejo brings out the best in this character to extend a nine-minute YouTube video to a full-length movie.

The concept of Tequila Works' Deadlight seemed like a great idea. Take the gameplay elements of the critically-acclaimed Shadow Complex, toss in an undead scenario during an alternate timeline, and add some cool puzzles to it. It's a shame, though, that it runs out of steam towards the end.
