Ride wolves & sticky hand slap fools with Midna in Hyrule Warriors

Midna is pretty brutal in Hyrule Warriors. PETA won't be happy about her riding wolves. Less happy about tossing one as a projectile. Then there's the 25 cent machine sticky hand coming out her head. It'll be covered in dirt and won't stick to a thing in a day.  Check out trailers for Link, Zelda, Impa, Lana, and Agitha.

Sony: 'Huge portion' of PS4 owners never played The Last of Us

It's easy to get up in word arms -- "milking," "cash grab" -- about re-releases, but I am generally for them. No one is saying you have to buy Final Fantasy IV again, but a lot of people still haven't played it. No one w...

Go kill half millipede, blue butt face Gigas in Soul Sacrifice Delta

I actually played a bunch of the Soul Sacrifice demo, but never ended up diving into the full thing. Soul Sacrifice Delta has been updated with a new encounter and some whacked out threads (definitely some of the weirder...

Far Cry 4 accolades trailer reinforces that elephants are jerks

Ubisoft put out a new accolades trailer for Far Cry 4 that mentions all the nice things people have said about it so far. It's great that Far Cry 4's perceived so positively, but did Ubisoft have to get its point across...

Here's how to unlock Shovel Knight's Butt Mode

In almost every conceivable way, Shovel Knight is a throwback to how videogames used to be a few decades ago. Everything positively oozes that retro style, save for blowing into a cartridge before firing it up. Even the ...

Review: Armillo photo
Review: Armillo
by Chris Carter

After following a number of indie developers who decide to go with the Wii U or 3DS eShop, I'm noticing a lot of the same sentiments in regards to loyalty to Nintendo. Not only have some of these developers grown up with Nintendo systems in general, but they are pledging their support because of the enhanced focus this generation on the indie side.

One such game that will be a timed exclusive on the Wii U is Armillo -- a "rolling platformer" that is a perfect fit for the eShop.

A fighting game about mages with armies of robots

Have you heard of Magical Battle Festa? Chances are pretty good the answer to that question is no. The indie fighter launched quietly this spring, with little in the way of promotion or fanfare. But, as luck would have ...

Guacamelee! is largely the product of DrinkBox trolling one another photo
Guacamelee! is largely the product of DrinkBox trolling one another
by Brett Makedonski

Videogames are often at their best when you can just tell that the developers had fun making it. There's a special quality that shines through -- one that can sometimes be tough to place, but somehow makes itself passively apparent. When games are developed by people that truly love creating with one another, well, it just seems like everything turns out better.

Guacamelee! was undoubtedly one of the most enjoyable titles of 2013. The comedic action platformer had an odd, quirky brilliance permeate the entire experience. When DrinkBox Studios went into the lab to make Guacamelee! and Super Turbo Championship Edition, everyone had a good time doing so -- usually light-heartedly at the expense of their co-workers.

Review: The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II photo
Review: The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II
by Patrick Hancock

The first Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing wasn't a bad game, however it did have crippling technical issues that held it back. Those issues have since been fixed, and developer Neocore Games has learned a lot in the process, it seems.

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II does what a sequel is known for and improves on the core idea of Van Helsing while adding enough content to justify a sequel. If you're a fan of "ARPGs," your ears should be perking up right about now.

Devil's Third producer talks relationship with Nintendo

I don't think a lot of people were poised to hear any news on Devil's Third this E3, much less a Wii U exclusive announcement. But here we are, and speaking to Game Informer, Valhalla Game Studio's Yoshifuru Okamoto had ...
