  1. Homestuck’s Andrew Hussie Clearly Knows His Target Audience, Now Working on Namco Dating Sim Game

    Now the real question is, will he get to horrifically kill any of the characters?

    Oh, Homestucks. We see you doing your thing and we're often very confused, but we deeply admire your passion nonetheless. Hopefully the shippers among you (read as: all of you) will be pleased to know that Andrew Hussie is now working on a dating game -- but using Namco Bandai video game characters. So no, it won't have any trolls, but KOS-MOS is kinda like a big fancy soulbot, right? Am I using that term correctly?

  2. The Author of Homestuck Is Creating A Dating Sim For Namco Bandai

    And So It Begins

    Andrew Hussie, creator of the 5,000 or so page webcomic Homestuck, has recently made a deal with Namco Bandai to take his already video game centric creativity to an actual video game, the dating sim Namco High. Namco High will presumably allow Hussie to take his ability to make fans ship any and every character pairing to a whole new level, as he creates a game that will center around dating various video game characters. For Homestuck fans, this may be a disappointment, as the unbelievable number of characters in the massive webcomic would certainly make for their own exciting, if not completely perplexing and alternate universe ridden, dating sim.  However, Namco High will not feature Hussie's original characters, but characters from across Namco Bandai 's video games.

  3. Eat, Drink, and Play Pac-Man: Namco Plans to Expand Arcade Business With New Restaurant Chain

    Even well into our adult years, we never appear to break out of that desire to seek out venues that in some way emulate our fond childhood experiences spent at Chuck E. Cheese's or ShowBiz Pizza restaurants: Food of dubious nutritional value, arcade games, and enough light and sound to overload the senses of even the most hardy of human beings. With plenty of establishments such as Jillian's and Dave & Busters catering to modern society's rampant case of Peter Pan Syndrome, Namco Entertainment Inc. -- the arcade game division of video game publisher/developer Namco Bandai Games Inc. -- is going forward with their plan to open a chain of restaurants in a similar vein to the aforementioned competition, which will hopefully allow the company to stake a claim in this lucrative market.

  5. 15 Retro Video Game Company Logos and their Modern-Day Counterparts

    Last week, gaming developer Rare changed that golden logo we remember so well from Donkey Kong Country and Goldeneye to a new, more 'modern' logo in commemoration of its 25th anniversary and its newfound focus on Project Natal. It's always a bit of a shock when a brand we know well radically changes its look, like a friend getting a new haircut that we don't know what to think about, but Rare's redesign reminds us that a lot of the gaming logos that greet us on the sides of boxes and on startup screens haven't been around forever.

    Below, Geekosystem has put 15 video game companies' old-school logos side-by-side with their modern counterparts. Which do you like better?
