Summer is pretty slow for good games so recently I have went to my back log of Anime games… and its not pretty. So, I decided to write this lovely article on how they suck and what they can do to fix it.
Anime and Manga are forms of entertainment that millions of people enjoy daily. Whether its watching Naruto online or playing video games Anime has had a huge impact on the gaming industry for years now. One of the main problems with anime based games is… they suck!

While this is old news the recent debacle of Mega Man Legends 3 has me wondering about the Developer/Management relationship within Capcom.
