Happy Monday, folks! Max and I are back from our weekend vacations in Hangover City, and before you ask, yes - we brought souvenirs. By which I mean, we brought back gaming news thinly disguised as souvenirs. Today, we've go...
Of all Nintendo's classic franchises, Kid Icarus is one that has sorely been lacking in love, with protagonist Pit's failing to make even a playable Super Smash Bros. appearance until Brawl rolled around in 2008. However, tha...

Here's another tasty wad of Kid Icarus: Uprising screenshots for you. The main theme appears to be bosses, as many images feature huge, roaring monsters that will doubtless need taking down. Monsters are assholes like that.&n...

Kid Icarus is the next game confirmed to hit the 3DS' "3D Classics" range, and at least it's a classic this time. A classic that people have tricked themselves into thinking is good despite it being a bit rubbish, but a class...
For the most part, the games I saw and played at the EB Games Expo were impressive. None really disappointed me or made me lose hope in a franchise. Some weren't for me, some made me want to pre-order that very same minute.&n...
