I'm sure you're aware, but Sega have been teasing some Bayonetta news over the past week. The more optimistic amongst us have been hoping it will be the announcement of Bayonetta 3, unfortunately not (but never say never). Instead the more conservative theory that it was a port of the original game to PC turned out to be the big Bayonetta news

Not that I'm sniffing at that, prior to the WiiU getting a port of the original Bayonetta I'd have leapt at the idea of a steam port, particularly one priced at the Bulletstorm-antithesis price of 14.99

Bayonetta is on Steam right now, and boasts 60fps, up to 4K resolution, Japanese and English voice tracks, and some more advanced graphical options like improved anti-aliasing and SSAO lighting

Tokyo Twilight came to the Vita (and I think PS4) last year. It's a visual novel that centres around ghost hunting. We never got around to it but it was fairly well received.

Anyway, Tokyo Twilight is coming to Steam as Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters: Daybreak Special Gigs

Boasting a new 'Daybreak' scenario, and an improved battle system, this isn't just a straight port, which is always good to hear.

There's a trailer below, Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters: Daybreak Special Gigs is due for release on March 17th

We may have posted about this, but if we did it completely slipped my mind that Steins;Gate was headed to Steam. So much so that it's out and we didn't post about Steins Gate's release

So yeah, Steins;Gate is out now on Steam, standard price of 26.99 and well worth your time. I'll say this, there's a real benefit to playing a text heavy game like Steins;Gate on a Vita (or a tablet if that happens), it's easier to read off a screen like that than a computer monitor (for long periods at least), and there's something to be said for hibernation. Either way Steins Gate is great and it really won me over

What is it with fighting games and bizarre titles.

Fighting game legends Arc System Works are bringing Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late to Steam on July 12th, although, as yet, there's no word on pricing

Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late looks fantastic, boasting hand-drawn characters. Arc System Works have teamed up with French Bread, developers of the well regarded, and also recently released on Steam, Melty Blood

As usual with these things there's a trailer below, and we'll keep you updated as we get closer to release

Remember remember the 5th of November. What would now be called terrorists, but have actually been reduced to anti-establishment iconography thanks to V for Vendetta, tried to blow up parliament, and, more related to video games, Mushihimesama gets its Steam release

No confirmed price details yet, but but there's a post on NeoGaf with a quote from one of the developers insinuating it's going to launch at $15 ($20 when the launch discount is removed). That equates to about 10, whether we'll get that price is another matter, but 10 is about fair I think

We reviewed Arcana Heart 3: Love Max!!!!! a couple of months back on the PS3, it's a good game, with a pretty varied cast of characters

Anyway, if you haven't played it and you want to give it a go, good news, as it's Arcana Heart 3 is heading to Steam

Arcana Heart 3: Love Max!!!!! is due to be released on September 29th, priced at $29.99, which I'm guessing is somewhere around the 20 mark, although there is the usual Steam preorder discount.

It seems to run on some fairly modest machines; the recommended specs are:
Processor: Intel Core i5 / i7
Memory: 4 GB RAM
Graphics: nVidia GeForce 8800 GT or better / AMD Radeon HD3700 / nVidia GeForce GT 650 (Windows 8.1)

We also posted a First Play video if you want to take a look at some low level gameplay in action

We were sent a code for the Steam release of Kamui (and ALLTYNEX Second), and after a couple of play throughs captured a video.

I'm not very good at Kamui, I make no claim to be, but I try to show how the game works, and there's a couple of levels in the video below

Kamui holds up really well, it's still a really good game. I'll get something akin to a review up once Geometry Wars is done, such is my busy, busy life at the minute
