Ol' Grunkle Miyamoto turns 60 today

And he doesn't look a a day over 50! How does he manage to stay so young? There are many notable game developers who have influenced the course of the industry, but arguably none are more well-known and beloved than Shigeru M...

Ever since I started posting Dj CUTMAN's chiptune mixes, the man has been wanting to express his appreciation for my help, so he offered to remix a game track for me. What was I going to say? No? Naturally, I accepted his off...

Ace Attorney film director planning worldwide release photo
Ace Attorney film director planning worldwide release
by Tony Ponce

What a glorious week it's been so far! First, Ace Attorney 5 is a really real thing, and now this bit of concentrated awesome. What do we have in store for tomorrow? Localization confirmation of Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney perhaps?

The Ace Attorney movie premiered a few days ago at the International Film Festival Rotterdam in the Netherlands, where it was received extremely well. The film's subtitles used the characters' Western names as opposed to the Japanese ones, which director Takashi Miike confirmed as part of plans to release the film worldwide with region-specific dubs and subs. That... makes me happy.

Film site Twitch goes on to say that the film runs over two hours long but that not a minute is wasted. The narrative is packed, the characters are deliciously hammy, and the hairdos are stars in and of themselves. Everything sounds wonderful. I can't wait!

Realistic Street Fighter 4 art is creepy and awesome

One of the reasons that I usually don't care either way about HD visuals is that today's developers seem to be so focused on using that extra fidelity for stuff like pock marks and realistic acne. If that kind of "realism" wa...

Live action Pokemon trailer inspires mixed emotions

On one hand, this an trailer shows a lot of love for the source material. They work in lines from the show as much as possible, usually with good comic effect. The special effects, while clearly fan made, are very well done ...

Minitroid gets new graphics, new music, new everything

[Update] Added video. The last time we talked about Minitroid, I told you that I found the game comforting. Metroid: Other M was just about to see release, and I was scared the game would be too different. While Other M look...

Fan-made Metroid manga looks freaking fantastic

I'm really impressed with this manga. Most of it's in color, and all of it looks awesome. The story is pretty weird; there's a whole lot of words, but nothing really happens. That's OK though. As far as free online comics go,...

Fan-created Mega Man FPS gets an even better trailer

Mega Man games seem to go over better when they stick to their 8-bit roots, but there's no reason why they can't be 8-bit-ish while operating on all three axes. Just take a look at Mega Man 8-bit Deathmatch, a game that takes...
