Smash Bros. 3DS update vaguely addresses balance issues

The first post-release update to Super Smash Bros. for 3DS is a bit of an enigma. Nintendo doesn't give the specifics of it, just that it'll "make for a more pleasant gaming experience." We'll have to take your word...

If you have a host of PS3 fight sticks and are pissed off that they won't work on the PS4, listen up.

In the above video Lab Zero's MikeZ shows off the fruits of their labor, getting the driver to work on a debug PS4. Expect to hear more about this venture in the future.

Nintendo has kids explain amiibo figures in Super Smash Bros.

I made it to the closeup of Mario's face, roughly a minute in, before deciding that I needed to share this ridiculous video in which a boy buys an amiibo for Super Smash Bros. to impress a girl. Kyle says it's the worst thin...

Killer Instinct's Season 2 is off to a great start photo
Killer Instinct's Season 2 is off to a great start
by Chris Carter

Although it had a few issues in terms of content, Killer Instinct on Xbox One was actually a good game at launch. Since then, I've taken a look at both Spinal and Fulgore, and found them to be a great addition to the already well balanced cast.

After Double Helix flew the coop, the game's fate looked rather iffy until developer Iron Galaxy took over the mantle. The changing of the guard would leave anyone on edge, but IG has done well by Killer Instinct with the Season 2 update, bringing in two new characters and a brand new UI.

"Always bet on Ganondorf," you said. I agree. Does that look like a face you'd want to mess with? And those teeth! Nintendo has uploaded a few more "secret fighter" galleries for Super Smash Bros. which you can find over here...

Damn it, Pac-Man, I believed in you!
