REVIEWS Samurai Warriors 4-II Review
Using mighty warriors to slay thousands of enemy fighters sounds fantastic, but does this game make the genocidal journey worthwhile?

Windows 10 Review for Dummies

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...


Castlevania Producer Koji Igarashi Leaves Konami

Posted on Monday, March 17 @ 11:00:00 PST by

Koji Igarashi has been making games for decades and is most well-known for his work on the Castlevania franchise, first acting as assistant director and programmer on the beloved Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, but Konami is now without the famed designer.

Speaking with Polygon, Igarashi said that he'll be stepping out on his own:

I've decided to break out on my own to have the freedom to make the kind of games I really want to make - the same kind I think fans of my past games want as well. Leaving Konami was a big decision, and not one I took lightly - I've spent my entire career there, made many friends, and had a lot of great opportunities - but I hope all the gamers and fans who have supported me in the past will join me in being excited about what comes next. Wish me luck!

Igarashi has been hands-off the Castlevania franchise since developer Mercury Steam started their Lords of Shadow reboot series. While the latest, Lords of Shadow 2, left a lot to be desired the team did try to recapture the kind of Metroidvania magic Igarashi is credited with creating.

Igarashi will be attending GDC and giving a talk about his work on the Castlevania franchise at Konami. We'll do our best to bring you the revelations shared there and more from GDC all week long.
