Review: Basement Crawl

Basement Crawl starts off with one of the most interesting premises I've seen in a downloadable game in quite some time. Then it goes completely downhill from there, plummets off a cliff, hits some spiky rocks on the way down, and explodes at the bottom.

Bombermine is 1000 player Bomberman

Almost a year ago, I wrote about a 100-man version of Bomberman which was, in reality, just a single-player game with 99 CPU opponents. At the time, I lamented that a truly massive multiplayer Bomberman didn't exist...

One Hundred Person Battle Bomberman is a cruel joke

Konami released today a new game for iOS and Android devices, One Hundred Person Battle Bomberman. That title? You're soaking in it, right? One Hundred Person Battle Bomberman.  Well, put your britches back on. The ...

What is your perfect multiplayer game?

Some of you may have seen the above image before. Originally posted on Racketboy three years ago, this setup was conceived for playing The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures on the GameCube by circumventing the use of Ga...

Nintendo DLC: Bomberman Hero and more

Remember Bomberman Hero for the Nintendo 64? No? Screw you then! I love Bomberman, and this was a great game. This was an action game with a stupid story, but it did the trick for me. It can do the trick again now that it's t...

Bomberman takes casual to the extreme

In this promotional video for Bomberman, we are shown what it's like to share an office space with Bomberman during casual Fridays. Pretty funny stuff. After watching this, I realized that I've never really thought of Bomber...

Let Bomberman ruin BioShock 2 for you

It’s not a year in gaming without a new Bomberman game from Hudson! Bomberman Live: Battlefest is the latest in the Bomberman franchise and it's coming to Xbox Live Arcade early next year. Battlefest will be bringing with it several new multiplayer modes to keep players engaged for a while. Not only that, but you'll also be able to use your Avatars to play Battlefest.

There's plenty more to talk about on the new Bomberman and you get all the details by heading past the jump.

Exclusive: Bomberman Live: Battlefest first-look trailer
by Nick Chester

This winter, Hudson is bringing Bomberman back to Xbox LIVE Arcade with Bomberman Live: Battlefest.

The follow up to 2007's Bomberman LIVE, Battlefest adds a slew of new features, including teams, new modes, arenas, power-ups, costumes and the ability to use your Avatar as a character. While the game isn't set to hit Xbox LIVE until winter, we have an exclusive early first-look at the game in action in this new trailer that has a funky 70s vibe. 

You're probably thinking: "It looks like... Bomberman." Your point? We've been playing variations of the game since the early 80s, and it hasn't gotten old yet. Blowing your friends up is just too much fun, and now we can blow up our stupid Xbox 360 Avatars. This can only end well.
