Newly released Blades of Time is a spiritual successor to X-Blades, a hack-and-slash game noteworthy if only for its risqué Japanese style character design.
With last week's North American release of anime-inspired action title X-Blades going largely unnoticed, SouthPeak falls back on that old marketing standard to help liven up the UK launch - bare model bottom.
Japan is getting two versions of X-Blades: the PS3 version has panties, and the Xbox 360 version has less so. But...why?
The 2009 New York Comic Con is kicking off this weekend, and SouthPeak Games plans on making their presence felt, throwing everything from space bears to live-action velvety assassins at convention goers.
Apparently the Xbox 360 and PS3 X-Blades box art are different? NSFW, even, someone somewhere said. We can't tell, there's got to be something.
The last game in the world I expected to like anything about is X-Blades – it’s a blatantly sexist, shallow anime rip-off with a paper-thin plot.
Hot of the presses, it's a full list of PS3 Trophies for X-Blades - complete with easy accomplishments and balls-hard feats.
I had the great good fortune to check out X-Blades for the PS3 today and have fresh screenshots to share with all of you.
She's young and needs the money. X-Blades heroine Ayumi has no shame whatsoever, very nearly baring it all for a special statue included with the expansive collector's edition of the game.
New screenshots from SouthPeak's fantasy action game X-Blades highlight the odd contrast between the game's realistic environments and the main character's anime-inspired look.
A pleasing dollop of screen finery from cross-platform gunblade romp X-Blades. MARVEL at the luminous 'magic is happening' lightshow! THRILL to the giant spiders! SWOON at the one where it is all dark apart from the glowy red bits! And GAWP at the really quite improbable physique of the protagonist Ayumi. That's quite…
I've been following the the game X-Blades ever since it was the Russian hack and slash title Oniblade, and not just for the adorable, barely-dressed anime-girl protagonist Ayumi. I was enthralled by...okay, I'm completely lying here. It was all about Ayumi, with her flowing blonde hair and her long legs that go all…
Apparently I jumped the gun a bit last February when I announced that SouthPeak Games was brining Gaijin Entertainment's Oniblade to the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC as X-Blades in late 2008. Turns out what the company really said was that they were brining it to the PC and next generation consoles, without…
VentureBeat reports today that publisher SouthPeak (I was just there yesterday seeing Ninjatown) has picked up $12.9 million in private investments. It's worth pointing out, as Dean Takahashi does in his story on the financing, that rarely do console and PC video game publishers pick up venture capital - most VC…
I saw a couple of Southpeak's upcoming titles today, including one that I didn't even know existed, to be perfectly honest. A development team of Russian Japanophiles - get this, their name is Gaijin - set out to create the most anime-styled action title they could, and came up with X-Blades, headed for PC and…
