Shoot a dinosaur in the face in Gunman Clive 2

3DS indie dev talks improvements, fan feedback

Every so often, developers will take reviews pretty terribly. They'll call up the reviewer's phone and pester them. They might flame them and call them all idiots. Others calmly take the high road and just focus on the next b...

Bit Boy!! Arcade is colorful and strange

Bit Boy!! Arcade has a second trailer, though I'm quite sure I never saw the first one. But I did investigate, and for a game with WiiWare origins shrunken down to the 3DS, it looks quite good. I'm not sure how I missed it, ...
