WAAAAH! IT'S WALUIGI (ASSIST) TIME IN SMASH BROS!

Some part of me hoped that Waluigi would make a triumphant entrance in the new Smash Bros. as a playable character. But alas, it isn't to be, as he has been confirmed as an assist trophy (again) by director Masahiro...

Super Smashed Bros. is the new cartoon that I've been working with Machinima and a group of like minded artists who like Nintendo and drunk cartoon characters. The first episode is about Captain Falcon and Mario getting to know Mega Man, one of the newest members of the Smash Bros. Family. The animation here is by Mike Lambert (Binding of Isaac: Rebirth) and I think he did an amazing job. 

We'll be rolling out new episodes for the next 3 Sundays. From there, anything's possible, though the more views we get, the more likely we are to keep going, so if you like the show, be sure to spread the word about it. Thanks for watching everybody!

WarioWare's Ashley is the latest Assist in Smash Bros.

While she won't be a playable character in Super Smash Bros., the fact that Ashley of WarioWare fame is included in the game at all warms my heart. She's going to be an Assist Trophy. We've only got the one screenshot to go o...

Hey gang! Sorry I wasn't around on Tuesday, but there wasn't a whole lot of news -- so here's a rundown of today's big news, including yesterday's big ol' Nintendo Direct, that new realistic medieval RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance, and the Xbox One's upcoming documentary series on the E.T.

It's frigid outside. We're in the midst of a slow period for game news. I've only just now realized I'm out of milk now that cereal is on my mind. On days like this, it's the little things that matter most, such as this daily...
