New tracks from the Theatrhythm Final Fantasy sequel

Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy was the first game I bought for 3DS. If you like Final Fantasy music or rhythm games, it's a wonderful time. If you like both, it's a meditative haven. It's getting a huge sequel, Theatrhythm Final...

Nintendo Download: Chibi-Robo! Photo Finder

On the Wii U this week you can grab Gradius and Cocoto Magic Circus 2. That's it. Seriously, that's it! Yet again, Super Mario Bros. 3 is missing. It's not a lost cause though, as Gradius may not be the be...

Nintendo Download: Bravely Default demo

This is a pretty bizarre issue of Nintendo Download. Nintendo sent over the exact same listing as last week, with the sole addition of the Bravely Default 3DS demo and Mega Man X2 for the Wii U. Those are two killer...

Amidst that "lack of demos" situation the Xbox One is having right now, Capcom has unleashed one for Dead Rising 3 -- should you care to try it out. It's basically a 20-minute demo that lets you play in the entire sandbox dur...

Nintendo Download: Rush, and more Sega 3D Classics

This isn't a very exciting week for Wii U fans, as you're only getting two [old] additions -- Two Tribes' Rush has been remade, and Double Dragon is live on the Virtual Console. That's about it, folks. As usual the ...

Ubisoft thinks The Division's Snowdrop Engine is amazing

Ubisoft released a video showing off the Snowdrop Engine from The Division, and it seems like they thinks it's really cool. In fact, they say that "never before has a video game reached this level of detail." I think th...

Nintendo Download: Contra III, Super Hang-On 3D

Today is a very retro-centric edition of Nintendo Download, with quite a bit of Virtual Console actoon, and even a few new 3D Classics. As for the Wii U, we have Contra III: The Alien Wars, and temporary sales on the Mario se...

Nintendo Download: Super Mario 3D World

Tearaway demo will launch alongside the game on Friday

Did you know Tearaway is coming out this Friday? Did you know we really, really liked it? Good, because I wasn't going to let this one slip right past you. That's not happening on my watch. I don't think Sony is going to let...
