The point is, I'm kind of on a Battletech/Mechwarrior kick right now and getting to play Battletech by HBS was right…

Everyone's favourite boob-physics monstrosity and badass ninja lady, Taki is returning to the Soulcalibur series after having her spot in the roster usurped by her student Natsu (no, not the fire-breathing anime character).

The new trailer for bug-postman game Yoku's Island Express takes a look at the game's setting and island, specifically the presence of the “last god egg” which looks super creepy.
