Suda51: No More Heroes almost ended with Travis Touchdown's death

Edge recently interviewed Goichi "Suda51" Suda about the making of No More Heroes, which was coincidentally timed quite nicely with my own article about the game a few days ago. The interview covered Suda51's inspirations for...

Sin and Punishment 2 and Pandora's Tower come out next month for Wii U in Japan

Sin and Punishment: Star Successor and Pandora's Tower are two of my favorite Wii games, and now they're coming to the Wii U eShop. As per Nintendo's YouTube channel they will both be arriving next month in Japan -- the former has a March 25 date, with the latter coming earlier on March 4. Both games support the Classic Controller, in case you were wondering.

We salute you, President Cat

Sukeban Shachou Rena, also known as "President Cat," was one of those games destined to never leave Japan despite our pleas. Back in 2009, western fans petitioned for a localization, but this minigame collection about a CEO cat was perhaps ahead of its time -- it sold miserably. No matter. Our love for Rena is unwavering. Dawww, just look at that face.

Nintendo has 'no comment' on third-party Wii games for the Wii U eShop

Nintendo recently started selling full Wii games on the Wii U eShop, leaving only the GameCube's library off the list of Nintendo's past home console titles that you can play (officially) on the system. Other than faster load...

Here are some recommendations for Club Nintendo's new massive reward dump photo
Here are some recommendations for Club Nintendo's new massive reward dump
by Chris Carter

Nintendo dropped a bomb on us today. A delightful digital bomb of over 100 games to download off Club Nintendo in exchange for your precious Coins. The service is gearing up for a remodel, but before then, all your Coins must go.

It's going to be hard to choose with everything on offer, but here's something to make it easier. As a general rule I'm going to skip over the Wii games that aren't directly compatible with the Wii U's interface, with one exception.

Doc Louis's Punch-Out!! headlines Club Nintendo blowout sale, with tons of new rewards

As I was enjoying the hunt for the Rosalina amiibo with a friend yesterday, we talked about what the new Club Nintendo would be like. But first, they have to close out their current one so we thought, "hey, wouldn't it be nic...

Harmonix surprises everyone with an imminent trio of Rock Band DLC songs

Remember the days of yesteryear when a bevy of plastic instruments was a de facto part of your interior design? Well, if you so wish, that look could make a comeback, as Harmonix is adding to the Rock Band library f...

Xbox dethrones PlayStation as porn console king, Wii grows 69.9% (nice)  photo
Xbox dethrones PlayStation as porn console king, Wii grows 69.9% (nice)
by Steven Hansen

Pornhub, which I am told by other people familiar with the webpage is a site for viewing adult, pornographic films, has released its statistical year in review. It's not as detailed on the videogame console side of things like last year's data, which we covered here deeply, but the infographics are still interesting, particularly as porn terminology is hilarious in the abstract.

Teen, lesbian, and milf all retained top search billing, for example, but "step mom" pole vaulted into the top 5 worldwide search terms (number 2 in the US) and "step sister" into the top 15 worldwide (the biggest ranking change, going up 53 spots in 2014), top 10 in the US.

Back to the videogame side, there's been a shift. The 2013 numbers attributed 55% of console porn viewing to PS3 users (compared to 39% on Xbox). 2014's numbers have Xbox at 45.7%, PlayStation at 40%. The Wii (8.2%), Vita (5%) and 3DS (1.1%) finish things off.

That marks a 69.9% increase in the Wii's market share, which is funny 'cause that's a sex number. Because these numbers are a percentage of a shared whole, it doesn't mean fewer PlayStation users are using their consoles for porn (plus, this is just data from one porn streaming service, of which I am told by people familiar with them there are many), but it is likely that a lot more Xbox users are using the service, which would account for their turgid, swollen numbers.

This cancelled Dirty Harry game was a wonderful, terrible idea

Back in the mid-2000s, Warner Bros. was planning on bringing Clint Eastwood's iconic, brutality-friendly policeman Dirty Harry back to life in videogame form on the PS3, Xbox 360, PC, Wii, and even the DS. Eastwood had agree...

Fresh Club Nintendo rewards: Metroid II, Kirby's Pinball Land, Pilotwings

Do you have any Club Nintendo currency left this late in the year? I do not. I'm not even sure where my Coins went. I only have two remaining low-value surveys to fill out (though Super Smash Bros. is on the way), and that's ...

Toys R Us Black Friday: Still no great Wii U deals

If you're looking to pick up a Wii U this black-weekend-and-also-the-preceding-Thursday, you should probably stay in and scour digital deals (or "digideals," as we call them). You should probably do that anyway, but you shoul...

Walmart black Friday: Get your cheap Beats and Xbox

All these "black friday" ads seem to lean on the Xbox One. Is that a partnership thing with Microsoft and retailers? Is that retailers not picking up on the notion that the PS4 is selling better? Is it the assumption that the...
