Art by Daniel Munoz There’s always been a bit of a stigma attached to hentai, a highly sexualised form of Japanese anime and manga. Ditto for any associated cosplay, which can often be explicitly pornographic. Despite this, a German couple is finding some surprising mainstream (for the cosplay world, at least) success combining the two. Advertisement Because I run our cosplay website, I browse DeviantArt (one of the world’s most popular sources for cosplay images) a lot while looking for cool photos, and started noticing an influx of a certain type of photo maybe 6-9 months ago. Every time I’d go and check the site out, I’d see that near the very top of the “most viewed” section of images, right alongside the Harley Quinns and Disney Princesses, would be these photos of a girl, usually dressed as anime character (though video games featured as well), bound and gagged. Sometimes there would be a man alongside her doing the binding, sometimes there’d be a man being bound as well. At first I thought the images were coming out of a scene I’d never encountered before, some fetish BDSM or shibari community that READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!
Former Rockstar President Brings the Name of His Next IP, “Time for a New World” Over a year since his fallout with Rockstar North, former President and GTA Lead Developer, Leslie Benzies, now has a few new titles trademarked. Among them: “Time for a New World” and “Everywhere.” He went so far as to secure the hashtag #TFANW(Time for a New World). As Benzies is one of the foremost individuals in the gaming industry, this is a big deal. Benzies’ trademarks are listed under Royal Circus, one of five companies he started since leaving Rockstar. Alas, many reports indicate a heinous departure. A series of revelations led to Benzie’s current lawsuit against Rockstar and parent company Take-Two Interactive. His claim says the company wrongfully and deceptively divested him of due royalties, as mentioned in his legal team’s statement: “While on sabbatical, Mr. Benzies discovered numerous deceptions on the part of Take-Two, Rockstar, Rockstar North Ltd, Sam Houser and Dan Houser, who sought to force him out of the company and terminate his portion of royalty payments based upon arbitrary actions by the company’s royalty Allocation Committee, a committee that may or may not have actually ever met.” Thus, Benzies could be looking at $150 million in compensated royalties….

***NSFW!*** I find it to be somewhat funny that I (Robin Ek, TGG) was informed about Kotaku´s whine about video game boobs (the post was written by Mike Fahey) and the release of DOAHDM 4.01 and Beach Paradise 3.0 on the very same day. Especially since I love DOA, females and lewd content. You see, just recently Mike Fahey (the same guy who… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!

IGN chats with the Gotham guest star about Jerome’s new look and new cult. By Matt Fowler This week’s Gotham, “Smile Like You Mean It” — airing Monday, January 23rd — marks the big return of Cameron Monaghan’s Joker-esque Jerome Valeska. Back from the dead, Jerome’s new reign of terror comes with a gaggle of new worshippers and a grotesque new look that includes nods to Joker’s “Glasgow smile” from The Dark Knight, Nicholson’s scarring from Tim Burton’s Batman, and the comic book Joker’s stapled-on “Death of the Family” face. I spoke to Monaghan about his return to the series, Jerome’s new look, new cult, and new arc with Bruce Wayne. IGN: First off, from what we’ve seen in teasers and in an image you posted on Instagram, Jerome’s new face is pretty damn freaky. Cameron Monaghan: Yeah, it’s very gruesome and I haven’t even posted the really gruesome ones. We had four different prosthetic pieces. Each took around three hours, roughly, to apply each morning and an hour at the end of the day to take off. Obviously, it’s difficult to add that amount of time because it means you’re going from thirteen and fourteen hour days to READ…

Then there’s Rage Drive, a new…
Although Super Smash Bros Melee closed out this weekend’s Genesis 4 with a bang, a cloud of controversy hangs over the tournament due to rule complications during the Super Smash Bros. for Wii U finals. The competitors most affected are looking for answers and, perhaps most surprisingly, compensation for the match errors they encountered. Advertisement The first signs of trouble arose during a losers bracket battle between Japanese visitor Rei “Komorikiri” Furukawa and “Captain Zack” Lauth. Both players had clawed their way through a grueling weekend against 1,000 of their fellow competitors and were now faced with elimination. On the line: a smaller portion of the over $10,000 prize pool, should they lose one more match. But as Komorikiri saw his tournament life come to an end at the hands of a 3-1 defeat, concerns were raised that a crucial gameplay setting was altered during their match. “Damage Ratio” in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U sounds like a pretty straightforward metric, but it actually affects how much knockback is applied to every attack (and knockback affects how easily players are killed.) Tournament standards call for this setting to stay READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!
