Wattam
"Oh, thank eff. There's a trailer!" A couple weeks ago, I saw Wattam, a near-indescribable game from Funomena and the creator of Katamari Damacy, Keita Takahashi, at a pre-E3 event. (He had excellent socks.) I'd heard that n...   read

Publishers think Swery's next game idea is 'perverted'

I'd be perfectly content with a conclusion to Dark Dreams Don't Die, but Hidetaka "Swery" Suehiro's idea for a new game sounds bizarre, original, and worth exploring. Here's how he described it in an interview with GameCentral: "a story abo...

Rub kiwi juice on pregnant Elsa's belly, and more terrible Frozen games

A few months ago, Jordan dutifully informed us of a game that we probably could've gone our whole lives without knowing about: a Frozen game in which Anna gives birth. What if I told you there are more Frozen pregnancy games? Man...

I hope Veryman.Expert becomes America's next great pastime

Think about the weirdest thing you saw today. Veryman.Expert is probably weirder. It's a browser-based god game, so to speak, about creating men. There are no losers, ever. You can adjust your man's movements -- a touch of Leanin here, a li...

Guy 'gits gud,' beats Bloodborne without leveling

YouTube user BOYvsVIDEOGAME decided to beat Bloodborne without leveling up or using a gun, and he's done it. Somehow -- with a lot of patience and practice, I'd imagine -- he's done it. He went with the Waste of Skin origin for his characte...

Guy beats Dark Souls with DK Bongos

That was a scary couple of minutes there while I dug through storage to confirm that, yes, my DK Bongos and copy of Donkey Konga have not vanished in recent years. My drum-whacking abilities have since dried up, though. Big mistake trying ...

There was almost ice skating in The Witcher 3

Let's take a moment to imagine Geralt ice skating in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Ahh, sweet bliss. Over the weekend, senior game designer Damien Monnier told a crowd at PAX East about CD Projekt RED's canceled feature. "It was more than an id...

Haha, really? Interplay is bringing back ClayFighter

Mere days ago, I hoped out loud that 2015 would become the year of clay for videogames, and now there's an announcement for a remaster of ClayFighter. Shame it won't be out until 2016. Interplay and Drip Drop Games (who?) are promising "the...

If this is what a 'rhythm violence' game looks like, I'm all about them

While watching this trailer for THUMPER, a self-described rhythm violence game from current Harmonix artist Brian Gibson and former lead programmer Marc Flury, I didn't want to blink. I also let out a confused "what?" followed by an even m...

What the hell?! Captain Toad has a spin attack!

Have you ever pushed through an annoying sequence without realizing that you were in fact "playing it wrong" and failing to grasp a concept or mechanic? I am guilty of this, but I'm struggling to think of an example newer than infinitely-sp...

Call this phone number for a cryptic Hotline Miami 2 message

The Hotline Miami Twitter account just posted this phone number: +1 (786) 519-3708 ext 10. I called it, like you do, and got a weird message, as expected. "We are 50 Blessings. Together we march ... into the future." Before I could determin...

This Kaizo Mario World speedrun stresses me out

Mad Catz' new controller looks like a Michael Bay Decepticon

I can't look away from Mad Catz' new controller for Android devices and PC. I just can't. The L.Y.N.X. 9 is meant to "offer a premium [see: $299.99; yes, really] gaming experience in almost any situation," though it's primarily geared towar...

I don't know WTF #IDARB is but I want it

I've heard that title before, #IDARB. I know it's coming to Xbox One. But other than that, I'm clueless. Brett came into chat today wondering about it, and Nic said the game looked "amazingly silly" on Giant Bomb months ago. "I think [Iron...

Dead or Alive 5 headed to PC but it won't have online at launch

It's great to see a series like Dead or Alive finally come to PC. Less great, however, is that "Online modes for Dead or Alive 5 Last Round will be added in a patch within three months of release." I suppose it comes down to which we would ...

So long, sub-$100 PS4s: Walmart adjusts price-matching policy

Thanks to Walmart's new online price matching, some customers were recently able to set up phony third-party listings on Amazon.com and convince the retailer to honor totally ridiculous discounts. For instance, how does a PlayStation 4 for ...

I can't make sense of this live-action Sportsball trailer

This trailer for Sportsball -- not to be confused with Action Button Entertainment's Videoball; the narrator's delivery reminded me of Tim Rogers, a bit -- is something else. I feel like I need to watch it about four more times to begin to...

Nintendo has kids explain amiibo figures in Super Smash Bros.

I made it to the closeup of Mario's face, roughly a minute in, before deciding that I needed to share this ridiculous video in which a boy buys an amiibo for Super Smash Bros. to impress a girl. Kyle says it's the worst thing ever, but I d...

Sonic x Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is, uh, yeah...

There's a Donkey Kong Country mod for Doom
