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

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

If only there were an 8-bit Nyan Cat game by Konami

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 ...
