Creating a Crisis of Time – Major Mayhem Android Review

I love Adult Swim, I truly do. With all the fun shows they’ve brought over the years, like Sealab 2021 and Frisky Dingo, how could I not?

Super Platinum Brothers: Anarchy (Demo and Game news)

While I have been trapped in the Skullgirls vortex, it seems that a demo of Platinum Games’ latest title Anarchy Reigns (Max Anarchy in Japan) has been released on both the Playstation Network and Xbox Live. Unfortunately, the demo is only available for Japanese accounts on both systems, but thankfully there is an easy (yet overly complicated) solution for non-Japanese citizens. For PSN users, you simply have to, well, make a Japanese account; that much is pretty easy as long as you can figure out how to navigate menus. For XBL users, you must undergo a more. . . difficult process in order to get your hands on the demo, which can be found here thanks to the ever lovely users of NeoGAF, so hop on it and join the carnage! I’ve played a bit of the demo myself, and words cannot explain how much fun I’ve had with it. For those unclear of what the heck Anarchy Reigns is, be sure to hit the jump. Continue reading

The second one came out, and I tried out the demo. I was convinced it was worth the $10. Was it worth it? Let’s find out.
