Onechanbara Special Brings Boots, Blades, and Bikini Babes to Your PSP

It's not often we cover games that have only been released in Japan, but in this case, we'll make an exception. The Onechanbara series made it to American shores in 2009, with releases for Xbox 360 and, oddly enough, Wii.  The formula for Onechanbara seems to be tough girls skimpy outfits zombies cool moves co-op - your brain.  Our review of the 360 release didn't pull any punches: it wasn't very good.  Still, there must be a market for cowgirls in bikinis wielding swords to decapitate the undead, and so D3 published Onechanbara Special for PSP.

Our Weekend In Gaming: Magic Dynasty of Apathy Edition

It seems several staff members are feeling a bit "meh" at the moment.  Maybe it's the fact that summer is tantalizingly close but still weeks away.  Maybe it's the fact that we want to be playing all the upcoming fall releases RIGHT NOW.  Or, maybe it's just too much too plan it all out.  Sometimes, rolling with it and playing whatever you want to on impulse is ok!

Comedy Central's "Ugly Americans" Coming to Consoles

Comedy Central's Ugly Americans is getting a video game treatment.  The animated series focuses on a social worker for the Department of Integration named Mark Lilly.  Set in New York City, the series focuses on Mark's interactions with NYC citizens, most of whom are some form of monster.  Mark narrates the episodes, which use thinly veiled metaphors and allegory to get the point across, something akin to Zach Braff's summation at the end of an episode of Scrubs.  I've actually seen a few shows and it doesn't totally suck.  It doesn't blow my skirt up, either, but I stopped wearing skirts after college.

The next downloadable map pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops - Escalation - has been outed by Australian games retailer GAME. In true Treyarch fashion, a new Zombies map will be included. Named "Call of the Dead", the co-op survival board joins four competitive maps (that should be playable in the pseudo-cooperative mode Combat Training as well), respectively named Zoo, Hotel, Convoy, and Stockpile.

Ghost Recon: Future Soldier Sound Team Goes Shooting

Here's a neat little bit of news that crosses over from another of my hobbies: guns! Red Storm Entertainment, the team behind the Rainbow Six series and the upcoming Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, recently had some fun at the shooting range in an effort to capture raw audio material. Accompanied by UNCTV.org's David Huppert and an ex-SWAT armorer, the sound designers got their hands on some interesting pistols, fully automatic carbines, and even a .50-caliber BMG sniper rifle.
