It is a sad reality that because the city of San Francisco has a team competing in the World Series of Baseball they have to think up new ways to control fans.

A sword has just been thrown across the field unexpectedly, its victim yelling at their opponent for hitting them, as the perpetrator gleefully sprints across the arena, awaiting his reward of being devoured by a giant dragon-monster-thing. Elsewhere, a man groans in agony as the gigantic flaming...

Platforms: PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U Release Date: April 2, 2013 Average Scores: 67, 70, 69 I spiked my controller to the ground at least twice while playing Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge.
