'Sackworm' missed the cut for LittleBigPlanet 3

I'm team Oddsock forever. It's just a super cute dog sack. I love it. I could take or leave the rest. Particularly a bird that makes platforming irrelevant. I guess LittleBigPlanet has always been creativity and co-op fi...

This 300-piece Kirby: Triple Deluxe puzzle is worth taking the time to put together

One of my favorite parts of Kirby: Triple Deluxe was collecting all of the adorable little keychains. I've been hoping to see an entire set of them released for purchase, pixelated goodness and all, but I've not seen them jus...

PSA: Here's the status on all of the Shovel Knight Kickstarter rewards and stretch goals

When Shovel Knight drops next week, everything from the Kickstarter won't be ready just yet. I had a chance to chat with Yacht Club Games and I got the lowdown on everything -- from digital stretch goal inclusions to phy...

Guacamelee! coming to Wii U, PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 in early July

DrinkBox Studios' Guacamelee! was part brawler, part platformer, and loads of fun. Enough so that double dipping isn't entirely out of the question -- far from it! The game is coming to new platforms soon with an expanded ver...

Trials Fusion's first update makes it even more competitive

Games in the Trials franchise have a way of bringing out the unbridled competitiveness in people. Knowing that you're just a tenth of a second off of a friend's score, you might play the same track over and over to make ...

Snag Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack on PS3 starting today

Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack was one of the first games I ever picked up for my Vita, and I still find myself going back to it from time to time. Today, it's available via PS3 for the first time, so you can save civ...

Another World is a classically freaky platformer that's coming to PS4

The surreal platformer Another World is making its way to PS4 next week, and I couldn't be more excited. The game's 20 years old, for crying out loud, and yet it's somehow found a spot on a next-gen console so that people can...

Here's your jam for today: VVVVVV soundtrack, but metal

Terry Cavanagh's gravity-flipping platformer VVVVVV is beloved for many reasons, and for a lot of fans, one of those reasons is Magnus "Souleye" Pålsson's kicking electronic soundtrack, PPPPPP. I know I have spent after...

Video: Yoshi's Woolly World has weaponized cannibalism

What's the verdict on Yoshi's Woolly World? Unsurprisingly, Max says it looks and feels good. He's a huge fan of the original Yoshi's Island on Super Nintendo and after the recent Yoshi's New Island, this game and its adorable hand-crafted aesthetic can't come soon enough. Shame it's not out until 2015, a running theme for much of this year's E3 lineup. No Baby Mario, at least.

Volgarr the Viking will be coming to Xbox One 'soon'

Volgarr the Viking is a pretty awesome success story. It stayed with its old school roots and gave us a punishing, yet fair retro 2D adventure, and it became a hit in many circles. Now, according to an ID@Xbox announcement at...

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse is almost too cute for words

Nearly ten years ago, Kirby: Canvas Curse graced our original Nintendo DS handhelds, showing us (once again) that Kirby games could be about things other than floating around, ingesting bugs, and vomiting stars. Canvas Curse ...

Sequin Yoshi, beaded Yoshi, and other cute prototypes

Nintendo settled on a knitted yarn style for Yoshi's Woolly World and I don't know what's better: it or Kirby fashioned out of clay in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. Either way, we win. There were other potential designs for th...

Turning yarn Yoshis into yarn balls in Yoshi's Woolly World

Yarn Yoshi is a pretty good name. Yoshi's Woolly World is an okay name. Yoshi's Yarn is a better name and what the game should've been called for the sake of alliteration and Yoshi's Story symmetry (a yarn is like a story!!!). I'm going to keep writing Yoshi's Woolly World as Yoshi's Yarn. Sorry.
