Sonic is too fast for Ocarina of Time

Vinesauce is at it again! On our previous trip through Ocarina of Time, Hyrule was transformed into a glitch-ridden nightmare hole. This time, Vinny used a special mod to play the game as the supersonic hedgehog Sonic. Or "S...

Hot damn: Total War's Legend of Zelda mod Hyrules

I'm not the biggest Legend of Zelda fan, I'm not the biggest Medieval II: Total War fan, but I want to play this mod. That trailer sold me. Too bad I am terrible at any strategy that isn't turn-based. The mod, downloadable h...

Half-Life mod Sven Co-op returning as its own game

Half-Life mods used to be all the rage. It seemed like each month brought a brand new and unique mod of the game's engine that felt completely alien yet familiar to play. Games like Earth's Special Forces or Battle ...

Man puts son's face on goombas in Super Mario 64

I don't have any kids of my own, so I can't claim to know what they would or would not like. That said, I wouldn't imagine that being relegated to existence as an army of heads with stubby feet only to be squished by a plump ...

Orcs Must Die! 2 adds Steam Workshop support

While I didn't stick around with Orcs Must Die! 2 like I did with its predecessor, it still provided some decent action/tower defense gameplay. In a move that will hopefully breathe new life into the title on PC, developer Ro...

Hulk smashes everything in this Grand Theft Auto IV mod

I thought the Iron Man mod for Grand Theft Auto IV was amazing, but this Hulk mod is way more insane. Yup, the Hulk has come to Liberty City and he's looking to smash anything that gets in the way. Players can pick up and to...

NEWER Super Mario Bros. Wii is available for free photo
NEWER Super Mario Bros. Wii is available for free
by Tony Ponce

If you are a Wii U owner and possess a copy of New Super Mario Bros. U, you've probably downloaded New Super Luigi U from the eShop already. That, or you are waiting on the limited edition retail release in the coming months. But don't feel left out if you are still rocking the original Wii and New Super Mario Bros. Wii. We've got just the hotness for you too!

Back in 2011, we reported on a fan-made hack of the Wii platformer entitled Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii. After three years of development, it's finally available. As long as you have a copy of the original game, an SD card with around 570 MB of free space, and a homebrew-enabled Wii (or Wii U in Wii mode), you can get this baby up and running with no trouble whatsoever by following these simple steps.

The Newer team went miles farther with their alterations than Nintendo did with Luigi U. Newer contains 128 new levels, completely new world maps and environments, new music, new enemies and bosses, and even the return of the Hammer Suit from Super Mario Bros. 3. All for free!

Review: Rising Storm photo
Review: Rising Storm
by Chris Carter

It isn't often that a developer works in tandem with the modding community to deliver a product, but that's exactly what happened with Tripwire Interactive's Rising Storm, the follow-up standalone expansion for Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad.

In a joint effort to deliver World War II action on the Pacific front, the two forces united to produce a product worth of the Red Orchestra name. They mostly succeeded, but not without a few sacrifices.

Baldur's Gate recreated as Neverwinter Nights 2 mod

A crazy mod team has spent seven years recreating Baldur's Gate in the Neverwinter Nights 2 engine. Not parts of it -- the whole thing. They didn't just start, either; it's done and it took seven years. Yup, it's crazy. It's...
