Incredible unseen footage of Twelve Tales: Conker 64

Sometimes it's hard to remember that Conker was not always the foul-mouthed drunkard we all know and love. He was supposed to be another kid-friendly mascot in Rare's software stable. He even managed to squeeze out a forgettable Game Boy C...

Review: Tokyo Jungle

We're not sure what took so long for Tokyo Jungle to be localized (we first played it at the 2010 Tokyo Game Show), but it's finally here and it's every bit as silly and hilarious as we had hoped it would be.   This acti...   read

Review: Bomb Monkey

Without a doubt, Renegade Kid totally killed it with Mutant Mudds earlier this year. With a simple, no-frills structure that struck a major chord with players, the eShop platformer was a sweet dose of purity in a genre that's...   read

How's your baby-throwing arm? Offspring Fling is out

Tokyo Jungle's animal outfits are too much

The PlayStation 3 game in which a humorously diverse population of animals has taken over a human-less Tokyo just got slightly more absurd. It's not enough that there are Pomeranians fighting lions in Tokyo Jungle; no, we need a cow dressed...

I'm hoping by now, you guys have all read Conrad Zimmerman's great writeup about Assassin's Creed III, and how it looks awesome and how there is snow. Now, here's an interview I did with Ubisoft Montreal's Alex Hutchinson. He was nice enough to answer some questions about the game's setting, the multiplayer, and most importantly, what kind of animals are in the game and can I eat them.   read

So. Nyan Cat. There is very little left to be said about Nyan Cat, except that it's my profound disappointment to inform you that Konami did not, in fact, release a licensed Nyan game in 1988. Not only would Nyan Cat vs. Tac Nayn have made ...
