New Sony Santa Monica logo looks less like it belongs on an Ed Hardy shirt

Sony Santa Monica, the studio behind God of War and helping hand on a bunch of other things, has a new logo. I like it. It also has more versatility than the previous Ed Hardy scrawl, as seen with the Hohokum color scheme. I appreciate a logo morphing itself to accommodate whatever it's trying to brand. Or maybe that's more subtle and insidious. Looks nice, though.   more

Link suplexes giant rock cylinders and smashes in Hyrule Warriors

The most fun bit here is definitely picking up enemies as they flail ineptly. The rest is pure carnage as Link wrecks underlings and even a giant mouthed boss worm with these clobbering gloves and ball and chain.  Much more brute force than Zelda with the wind waker.   more

Persona Q coming November 25, let's loop the opening until then

Persona Q, the chibi 3DS amalgam of Persona 3 and Persona 4 characters, has a North American release date: November 25. The opening is still amazing. The premium edition is pretty nice, too. Shadow of the Labyrinth has won me over since its announcement -- or maybe it's just the dearth of Persona -- so I'm pretty ready.   more

There's a Hummer H1 in Forza Horizon 2, and these 99 other cars

I hate Hummers so much. Only in America would a car that stupid get that popular. Of course, Forza Horizon 2 has the H1, the actual Humvee-looking one that isn't any less stupid for civilian driving, but at least it doesn't look like a gangly, overgrown Power Wheels like the popular H2 you still see out and about sometimes. The first 100 cars are listed here.   more

Robin's Nosferatu: First Smash Bros. move that steals health

Robin, the vanilla, wrong representation of Fire Emblem: Awakening's main character, is a bit of a sneak in Smash Bros. First it's the flirtation with dark magic, now it's word that Robin's Nosferatu attack will damage e...   more

PS3/360 strategy game Bladestorm getting remade for some reason

Next you're going to tell me someone is remaking Runaway with Tom Selleck and Gene Simmons. Well, that would be less surprising. What's a random movie from 2007? Someone's going to remake Stardust? In the Name of th...   more
