See Dragon Quest X on the 3DS for the first time

Dragon Quest X is coming to the 3DS in Japan, which will hopefully boost its sales a bit. It'll use "ultra steaming tech" to bring high quality visuals to the portable, alongside of extra buttons and a keyboard by way of the...

If you haven't been paying much attention to the recent Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire details to come out of Japanese magazine CoroCoro and promptly appear online in blurry scans, not to worry -- it's pretty m...

Expect severed heads and stabbed necks in this Assassin's Creed Unity trailer

Just in time for Bastille Day, Assassin's Creed Unity comes dropping down from the shadows to provide a new glimpse at its take on the French Revolution. Apparently, these aren't exactly civil affairs, so a suitable amount of inspired violence is on display. As the trailer points out, there's no justice unless someone fights for it.

Lead the most adorable mob riot with Anarcute

Everybody loves putting on an animal mask and wreaking destruction, right? Anarcute may not be as bloody as Hotline Miami, but it does tap into that same urge. It's that desire to dress up like a demented, googly-eyed Animal...

Those new Smash Bros. mystery characters are Lucina and Robin from Fire Emblem photo
Those new Smash Bros. mystery characters are Lucina and Robin from Fire Emblem
by Chris Carter

Today, Nintendo was set to tease a "New Fighter Intro Video" at 7AM PST, and tease they did. The new fighter was revealed to be none other than Lucina from Fire Emblem: Awakening. But wait, there's more! Robin from Fire Emblem is also in, and he has a female gender swapped costume! Chrom was revealed as well, but it isn't clear if he is a playable character or just a skin/assist trophy/Final Smash, but all signs point to the latter.

Finally, Captain Falcon was revealed as a returning fighter. That's three confirmed characters with two new additions and one returning character (we'll see what Chrom is soon enough). Sakurai noted last week that they were "nearing the bottom of the stash" in terms of new announcements, so I wouldn't expect a whole lot more.

Luigi's death stare is still strong with these Mario Kart 8 toy displays

Ever since I originally posted about those Mario Kart 8 toys at McDonald's, I've been meaning to get out to one and pick up one of them, but I have yet to do so. In the event you've been trying to figure out whether or not y...

Here's the Tekken 7 trailer we've all been waiting for

It's about time we get another Tekken game. Despite the fact that my last true favorite Tekken game was Tekken 3 with Hwoarang, Eddy, and Jin, the official Tekken 7 trailer still has me sufficiently excited. However, bizarre...

Real cats couldn't play White Cat Project because they have no thumbs

Mobile games are usually quick and easy, but you still have to end up fiddling with touch controls to figure out. That's if they work correctly. White Cat Project, recently revealed by Famitsu, seeks to change all of that by...

Natural Doctrine still looks ugly, but it might be fun

Natural Doctrine isn't exactly good-looking, but it's a strategy role-playing game with a protagonist named Jeff. I like strategy role-playing games. They're some of my favorites. And Jeffs are okay, I guess. It's not like I...

Disgaea 4 is pure insanity on PlayStation Vita

The fact Disgaea is wild and bizarre may come as no surprise to series veterans, but for any newcomers out there, this new trailer should leave you with little doubt. Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited debuts in North Ameri...

Far Cry 4 villain wears that suit as an homage to his mother

Ubisoft released an interview with Far Cry 4 executive producer Dan Hay that tip-toes around the relationship between the game's striking villain, Pagan Min, and its returned-home-to-spread-his-mother's-ashes protagonist, Ajay Ghale. Lots of maternal stuff going on here. Can't wait for some psychoanalysis.

What do you think about cut scenes?

There are hard line stances against cut scenes ("cheating"!), Kojima considering them a natural outlet for all the movies he watched, and developers considering them one of many useful tools in this new Critical Path&nb...
