Mighty No. 9 has gone gold, out in June

Is this it? Is it finally it? Comcept has claimed that Mighty No. 9 has finally gone gold and will drop on June 21, right after E3. Although the Vita and 3DS versions are coming later still, Comcept has promised no more delays are in sight,...

Super Meat Boy jumps to Wii U May 12

At long last, Super Meat Boy is coming to a Nintendo platform (Wii U) on May 12. The good word comes more than five years after Team Meat cancelled the WiiWare version of the game in December 2010. The port had originally been pla...

Ratchet & Clank on PS4 is the series' fastest-seller

I've seen a lot of love for the new Ratchet & Clank game, but I couldn't tell if that was the social media echo-chamber effect or if there really were a bunch of people getting way into Insomniac's refresh of the PlayStation 2 original ...

Hot Lava

How has floor-is-lava 'em up Hot Lava not been made already?

I am utterly shocked Hot Lava hasn’t happened already. You know when you were a kid, and you’d jump all over the furniture, shouting “the floor is lava!” and pissing off your parents? It’s that but as a video g...

Even Babymetal is teaming up with Mario Maker

The metal idol group Babymetal is coming to Super Mario Maker as a character costume, which is something I should probably find strange, but don't -- not after the pigeon, Barbara the Bat, and Chitoge Kirisaki. Nintendo has gone to unexpec...

If you miss Kirby's Dream Course, take a look at Bulby

Kirby's Dream Course holds a special place in gaming history. Despite releasing more than 20 years ago and featuring a unique gameplay hook, it didn't see many copycats. Sure, there have been other golf games, but nothing has been quite lik...

 
Sega 3D Classics review
When I was growing up, there were Sega kids and Nintendo kids. Initially I was part of the latter clan, before wising up and embracing all walks of gaming. All of those conversations about how Sonic was cooler than Mario, or ...   read

Rayman Origins

The wonderful Rayman Origins is now playable on Xbox One

Can we take a moment to appreciate how well Rayman Origins turned out? After a slew of ports, 3D sequels, and spin-offs, Ubisoft finally worked its way back to the series' side-scrolling roots for a modern successor and the end result was t...

Mirror's Edge Catalyst recommended PC specs are rough

A pal just explained to me that 16GB of RAM is "the new standard," so maybe you're all immune to the sticker shock, but I've still only got 8GB of RAM, damn it, so a literally doubled recommendation? That's pretty big. I wonder how much lon...

It only took 46 hours to beat this insane Super Mario Maker level

Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn’t stop to think if they should. When you finally beat the insane Super Mario Maker level after 46 hours:

Shantae and the Pirate's Curse leaps to PS4 this week

Shantae and the Pirate's Curse is heading to PlayStation 4 this Tuesday, April 19. Originally released for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS in 2014, Pirate's Curse marks the third installment in WayForward's iconic platformer franchise. The...

More Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 info coming later this month

Azure Striker Gunvolt was a highly underrated game, and I can't wait to play the sequel. Thankfully more news is coming later this month, as Keiji Inafune will deliver a keynote on April 26 with additional information about the game. T...

Kirby: Planet Robobot looks great in this overview

Remember hopping in a mech in Mega Man X, punching the crap out of everything in your way, and not wanting to finish the level because doing so would mean ditching the armored suit to fit through the boss gate? Good times! That's what I th...

 
Risk of Rain ports
It's only fitting that right as an exciting new roguelike enters my life and rekindles my interest in the genre, an old favorite comes calling. Lately, Risk of Rain has been eating up evenings that would otherwise be wasted o...   read

Epic Dumpster Bear
Is there something you just love no matter how shitty you know it is?  For example, marshmallow Peeps and candy corn.  Epic Dumpster Bear is a Wii U exclusive, and it is epically shitty, but I kind of like it. Somet...   read

Nintendo still coy about exactly what makes them delete a Super Mario Maker level

As you may have heard, Nintendo has been deleting select Super Mario Maker stages lately, including a series of levels from popular streamers. The problem is, they don't really explain why this is happening, and these bans can com...

Outland and Gunstar Heroes are worth revisiting on Xbox One

Have you peeked at your full Xbox One digital game library recently? With all of the backward-compatible titles rolling in, I find myself paralyzed by choice and often end up just playing nothing. I'm hoping to avoid that situation with tod...

Lego Marvel's Avengers gets free Ant-Man DLC on PlayStation

As promised, Lego Marvel's Avengers owners on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 can download an "exclusive" free level and character pack based on Ant-Man starting today. Ant-Man can shrink and grow, as you'd hope, and the new Michael Pe&nti...

Are you getting antsy about Mighty No. 9?

Because it doesn't have the best track record at keeping its fans and backers up to date, the Mighty No. 9 project has once again started making waves across the internet. Based on a recent "no comment" response from Deep Silver regard...

Would you spend over 12 hours trying to beat a Mario level?

I like difficult games as much as the next guy, but I draw the line at trying to best every "insane!" Super Mario Maker level known to man. But given the massive sales it's seen, there's always going to be at least one person in t...

Wario Land: Shake It!

Wario Land: Shake It! is coming to the Wii U this week

Wario Land: Shake It! is a really underrated game that doesn't get talked about nearly enough. Hell, you could probably levy that same complaint against the Wario series as a whole, but I digress. For those of you who enjoy great platf...

Superhot meets Clustertruck in Super Truck

You know and love Superhot and Clustertruck, right? If so, then TinyBuild's April Fools' Day combination of those two titles is right up your alley. I just gave Super Truck a quick spin and it is pretty much what you'd expect: th...

I may not be the biggest fan of the Angry Video Game Nerd, but I've seen enough of the web series to get a good idea of what the Nerd is all about. I enjoy some aspects of it, such as his wild facial expressions and his criti...   read

Starfy is coming to Super Mario Maker

Starfy is a lesser-known character from the Nintendo universe, but that might be because he's not wholly owned by Nintendo. In fact, he's co-owned by Tose, creators of the Game & Watch franchise, as the Legend of Starfy games were only ...

Mirror's Edge Catalyst

Hopefully Mirror's Edge Catalyst has a better story than the first

Like everyone else, I was disappointed with the narrative of Mirror's Edge, but it absolutely didn't break the game for me. I had fun treating it like a puzzle game, and saw the campaign as a massive tutorial for the real meat, the tim...

That Contra reboot game just looks...ugh

So you may have heard of Tencent, that company seemingly bent on global domination of multiple industries, including your vidjas (want to know something crazy? It owns 48% of Epic Games!).Since Konami loves money, it has partnered up with t...

A look at the canceled Bonk: Brink of Extinction

Bonk: Brink of Extinction had been planned for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii before being canceled due to a tsunami in Japan, among other reasons. YouTuber PtoPOnline gives us the inside scoop on what exactly happened to the ga...

 
Adventure Time review
VR is a weird thing. Developers are trying all sorts of different experiences, some of which are essentially the same as what we're playing right now (just with a different point of view), some are wholly VR oriented with imm...   read

Lucky's Tale
Lucky's Tale was always going to be a tough sell. It's a bundled-in Oculus Rift launch game, which is often used as a tech demo for prospective buyers -- so to a lot of people, it probably looks like something that isn't a system seller. And those people are probably right, but I had a damn good time playing it.   read

Shelter's adorable spin-off Paws is out now

Paws, a standalone follow-up to Might and Delight's Shelter 2, is now available on PC. In contrast with its predecessor, which focused on an adult lynx looking after her cubs, this one puts players in the shoes (paws?) of a young lynx ...
