Sonic Boom can be hilarious without game-breaking bugs

Used to be Sonic games would at least let you stand in shin-high, Interstellar water. I stood in a lot of low water tending to my chao homies in their gardens (Dark Garden for life). This series was so much be...

Rodea: The Sky Soldier is back from the dead, repurposed for Wii U

Years ago, Rodea the Sky Soldier was announced for the 3DS and Wii. It looked amazing. The art style, the vertical-centric action -- everything about it looked great. But for years we heard nothing as to the status of t...

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...

I still miss when Lego figures didn't talk, but Lego Batman 3's trailer is cute

Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham is available now, for nearly every console imaginable, real and otherwise. It's probably available for the Imagination Station 3000, but supplies are limited. The launch trailer above doesn't rea...

The Kirby and the Rainbow Curse Japanese boxart looks so good I could eat it

Nintendo has revealed the Japanese boxart for Kirby and the Rainbow Curse and hot damn it looks delicious, er, I mean beautiful. That stylus is just drawing all over that delicious cake, which kind of pisses me off, but ...

Beat the rush, pre-load Smash Bros. for Wii U today

Whenever Nintendo does something Internet-related, there always seem to be issues. New Club Nintendo promotion? Good luck trying to redeem anything before the website crashes. Hot new game coming out? That's going to take abo...

Sonic Boom's game-breaking bugs are delightfully anticlimactic

Ah, Sonic Boom. I'm just in it for the laughs. I checked out after Shadow the Hedgehog and Sonic Heroes.  Did you know I actually missed the Janet Jackson Super Bowl nipple slip because I left at halftime to go pla...

FUGGETABOUTIT!!

What, no "If you need to learn how to talk to a lady, ask your mom"? At least this probably-old-but-new-to-me Bayonetta 2 soundboard has Enzo's catchphrase. I feel bad for making it to the end of the game before realizing he'd been left behind. What a goof. A foul-mouthed, lovable goof.

Every Super Smash Bros. Final Smash on Wii U photo
Every Super Smash Bros. Final Smash on Wii U
by Steven Hansen

Like a Fatality supercut or big hitz (sports term) highlight reel, it does feel a bit unearned to watch. Gluttonous. 

But I watched the first and I was hooked. This game is so pretty on the Wii U. And so much more a lot of things on the Wii (all of them at that link, like 8-player multiplayer) than the 3DS. Hard to armchair fault Nintendo's choice of release order now.

The craving is real.

Former Rare devs return to Nintendo consoles on Nov. 13

November 13 is a big day for the Wii U. It's the day that Mario Kart 8 unofficially becomes Super Kart Bros.. As a huge fan of both Excitebike and F-Zero, I'm just as excited for this DLC as I am about Smash Bros. for the Wi...
