The Humble Archie Comics Bundle packs in Sonic and Mega Man


Worlds Collide
Jan 27
The "Sonic and Mega Man: Worlds Collide" arc from Archie Comics was pretty radical. See, I'm using '90s terminology to describe it, so you know it has to be good. The comic series sees Mega Man and Sonic pitted against and wi... read

Capcom is delisting Marvel vs. Capcom Origins soon


Oh man, that filter

It's a shame when companies delist digital-only games but it's even worse when they don't give a heads up. Capcom had the courtesy to let us know that Marvel vs. Capcom Origins is coming off PlayStation Network on December 23... read

This Batman: Arkham Knight trailer is disappointing


'Batmobile trailer,' I should say

We go forward: A bittersweet comic to start your day


Clever comics cosmonaut
Jul 08
Using game mechanics and a pixel art aesthetic to convey a deeper thought is no longer for indie games some of you are sick of. It can be done in comic form. And quite well. It's like a mild La Maison en Petits Cubes, in that I wasn't weeping  heavy for five straight minutes.  It's cute and bittersweet. Good job, Shenanigansen (no relation). read

Heh. There's a mini Deadpool pinball table in this Deadpool pinball table. That's fun. Quick-time events, even if they're supposed to be a joke? Less fun. But I like that Zen Studios is giving Deadpool a table all his own --... read

The Wolf Among Us episode 3 accolades trailer is a little cranky


After all, it's been a long f*cking day
Apr 24
These The Wolf Among Us accolades trailers that Telltale likes to put out after each episode might not amount to a whole lot more than horn-tooting, but they still feel weighty and worth a watch. The music and truncated punchy lines make the mood feel so perfect. I'm half-tempted to make my own accolades trailer for these accolades trailers. They deserve it. read
