For the fiscal year ending March 31, 2011, Namco Bandai's "Content" division -- which includes both home-console and arcade games, in addition to music and video products -- increased sales just enough to post a modest operating income of ¥3.09 billion ($38.5 million). In turn, the company tu...

Save on Castlevania, Naruto and more in Amazon's year-end sale

If you thought Amazon would stop holding ridiculous sales because the holiday season is winding down, you are a fool. A hypothetical fool.

Shot happens: Splatterhouse screen is the butt of our jokes

It's time for some straight talk. When we saw the above image – part of Namco's Splatterhouse Gamescom press blast today – we were simultaneously both grossed out and in stitches. We had a lot of gags (both because of and featuring) Rick and his monster pal but we couldn't settle on jus...
