Let’s be honest here. As far as gaming has come in recent years to making ideas about playing as realistic humanoids who are less top-heavy and more interested in telling a good story, there’ll always be a Japanese studio leering around the corner, ready to throw something decidedly insane into that mix. And buddy, it doesn't get more crazy than Senran Kagura series which has three new games on the way.
Times are changing, and with it age old traditions. Take weddings for example. The holy union of man and wife/man and man/woman and woman/man and that sexy hole in the wall is giving way to legal partnerships and unions. What a wedding needs in order to survive, is some magic. Which is what this union had bucket-loads of.

March has come and gone, and it’s time again for the random draw on the Lazygamer.net Superbru rugby prediction pool. One super bru has won himself a free copy of BioShock: Infinite on the platform of his choice.
In life, there is one constant, and that’s that Lego will always remain awesome. Sure, the stuff may be the same price as a small African nation these days, but there’s no denying that the Danish blocks will always be there to get the creative juices rolling, or find a way to embed a 4x2 piece in your foot late at night. And now, Lego has combined with those heroes in a half shell. LEGO POWER!
The sneak attack XBLA stealth game Mark of the Ninja is ninja kicking its way onto Steam this October. After a very successful release on XBLA the game is sure to provide us PC gamers with top quality entertainment.
Of the world, says the trailer - though it could be the beginning of the end of Ninja Gaiden as we know it. the legendarily brutal hack and slash has been reworked for its 3rd game - and has taken a decidedly more realistic turn.
Well, as realistic as modern ninjas can be, really.
The upcoming ultra-violent Ninja Gaiden 3 is shaping up nicely, blending unbelievable carnage with super cool shinobi skills. Team Ninja has already confirmed that the PS3 version will feature move functionality, meaning that we’ll actually get to go through the motions of swinging a blade on a hapless henchman, but as for the Xbox 360?
Looks like the Kinect will be gathering some dust when the adventure rolls around, but it’s not as if Team Ninja didn’t try to make use of the hands-free device.
Whilst sipping my coffee and eating my cucumber sandwiches (with the crusts cut off, of course) I came across a post by MooDy on the local Xbox 360 forums. It details what, according to the accompanying press release, is the countryâ€™s first ever conviction of a video game pirate.
The brigand in question, one Muhammed Baber, ran â€œGame Zone,â€ a videogame store in the uShaka Marine World in Durban. We say â€œranâ€ because after a raid on the store orchestrated by the Department of Trade and Industry and SAFACT, the dastardly buccaneerâ€™s digital contraband â€“ primarily PC games - has been confiscated. In addition to that, heâ€™s been sentenced to 1 years imprisonment or a R20 000 fine â€“ Unfortunately, it seems walking the plank is no longer a suitable punishment.
This sets a precedent for the country, and will hopefully go some ways to eradicating those awful third-rate copies from flea markets and the like.
We at Lazygamer abhor, deplore, despise and detest piracy and those that propagate it. We donâ€™t really have any issues with the piratesâ€™ busty, buxom wenches though.
The ninjas among you are welcome to let us know what fate you would have befall your mortal pirate enemies.
As for you pirates? Leave your wenches at the door and start running â€“ weâ€™re coming for you.
