This fan-made Super Smash Bros. trailer looks official

Content creator Dean Wright has posted a new video on his YouTube, and it's pretty damn awesome if you're a Smash Bros. or Mario fan. The clip involves Mario (in his Smash Bros. style) running through Tokyo, "...

Onechanbara Z2: Chaos trailer full of tits, upskirts, and murder

Holy crap, that song it goes into around the 45-second mark is so damn bad. Onechanbara Z2: Chaos is hitting PS4 in Japan this October, where it can hopefully help shift some units, as the PS4 library isn't tickling the country's collective fancy. Looks I lot better than the Onechanbara I played on Wii.

Final Fantas-free: 14 day Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn trial

Square Enix is offering 14 days of free Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn on PC. As someone who doesn't like MMOs, but likes Final Fantasy, I might just try it out. Fourteen may be the perfect number of days for me to get my fill. Or maybe I'll find myself a convert and end up a paying customer, as Square Enix likely hopes.

This trailer for Breath of Fire 6 is as pretty as I expected, but that's about it

This animated trailer is absolutely stunning, but it does not do much to enthuse me for Breath of Fire 6. Breath of Fire 6, subtitled Guardians of the White Dragon, is set to be published as an online, web-based role-pl...

Celebrate the Game Boy's 25th birthday with this free OC ReMix album photo
Celebrate the Game Boy's 25th birthday with this free OC ReMix album
by Jordan Devore

25 years ago, the Game Boy launched in North America. Do you still have yours?

The folks at OverClocked ReMix have put together a celebratory arrangement album, Legacy: Game Boy 25th Anniversary, featuring 15 songs from games like Tetris, Super Mario Land, Pokémon Red, Mega Man II, and Batman. Listen to it for free here (or torrent here).

Perfect timing -- I was sorely in need of more music to work to. I'm willing to bet good money that if I dug my Game Boy out of storage, it'd still have enough of a charge to play Qix or whichever game I left in the cartridge slot when I last used the handheld years ago.

Engage in psychological warfare with Shadow of Mordor's Wraith

You might've thought that Orcs were all fleshy and a good ol'-fashioned sword through the squishy parts would be enough to take care of them. False. Some might fall to the blade, but you'll need something decidedly more cere...

Nisha the Lawbringer whips it good in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel
by Bill Zoeker

I got to spend a little time with Nisha the Lawbringer from Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, and yippee ki-yay is she a fun character. Nisha brings Old West sensibilities to this moon shooter, and a few new tricks as well. And a bullwhip.

Watch Ro make some Minecraft candy pops in this episode of Nerdy Nummies

You might not know this about me, but I'm a big fan of Rosanna Pansino's Nerdy Nummies series. She's bubbly, fun, and puts me in a great mood while teaching me how to make treats based on my favorite videogame and other medi...
