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...

Mighty No. 9

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...

 
AVGN II review
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 ...

Azure Striker Gunvolt sells 150,000 digitally on 3DS

If there's one recent release that's underrated, it's Azure Striker Gunvolt. It's a fantastic little take on the Mega Man ZX series, and hey, we're probably going to get two of them before Mighty No. 9 is out. It turns out th...

I totally forgot about Mekazoo, a Donkey Kong Country-inspired platformer

I remember when Brett previewed Mekazoo last year, but outside of that moment, I kind of forgot it existed. This newest trailer definitely refreshed my memory though, as it shows off basically everything you'd want to know in terms of ...

Wii eShop darlings LostWinds and LostWinds 2 out now on Steam

Ages and ages ago, LostWinds debuted on the Wii eShop. It got some critical acclaim back then, including from our now-defunct retro podcast RetroForceGO! Since then, it and its sequel Winter of the Melodias have shown up on mobile platforms...

Slain looks sufficiently intimidating in this launch trailer

After a round of delays, Wolf Brew Games is bringing its brutal hack-and-slash platformer Slain! to Steam tomorrow, March 24. The console versions are still coming, but not until later this year. The lighting, particle effects, and sometim...

Capcom puts forth nebulous interest survey for Mega Man

Ha! Capcom is at it again, trying to "gauge" whether or not Mega Man is still a viable franchise outside of the mountain of merchandise they've been pushing. According to Rockman Corner, Capcom of Japan has been putting out surveys recently...

Lucky's Tale shows us how third-person games work in VR

Lucky's Tale is the cute platformer included with every Oculus Rift virtual reality headset, and many people have scoffed at the idea of it being third-person game that requires VR, but this new gameplay trailer aims to address those ...

Deadlight returns with a director's cut this June

As much as it's a surprise to see Deep Silver and Abstraction bring back Deadlight of all things with an enhanced edition, I wouldn't mind it if we got more of these Xbox Live Arcade revivals. Folks who went through the last console genera...

I'll never look at Banjo's hips the same way

Rare is still making videos recounting what it was like behind the scenes on Banjo-Kazooie, and I'm still fascinated. Today, it's five (more) things we probably didn't know. As discussed in the video, the game's musical intro was originall...

Toadette is making her way into Super Mario Maker

When Captain Toad was added to Super Mario Maker, it made sense that Toadette was only a matter of time. Nintendo confirmed her appearance this week as a Mystery Mushroom character, to be added in shortly alongside of the new update charact...
