Calm down: Nintendo still has a lot in store for Wii U

After the recent announcement that Zelda for Wii U wouldn't be releasing in 2015, people all around the Internet have been losing their collective minds screaming that the Wii U is dead when really, it is anything but. So join me as I refresh your memory and get you back on the Nintendo hype train for 2015.

I see a lot of classic Mario platforming design in Splatoon's campaign

While Splatoon's multiplayer was on display for all to see at E3 2014, the single-player campaign was fairly under wraps. We now know that it will be a completely separate affair from online play, complete with a full na...

Nintendo: 'Splatoon is aiming to do for action shooters what Mario Kart did to racing'

At a recent event at Nintendo of America's headquarters in Redmond, Washington, I was able to play Splatoon for the first time since E3 2014. It's come a long way since then, and Nintendo is particularly proud of what it...

Splatoon's multiplayer feels promising for casual and hardcore shooter fans, but will people buy it?

Nintendo isn't exactly known for its online experiences. With the exception of a few recent titles like Mario Kart 8, the public is typically clamoring for some form of online support. Games like Mario Party 10 would pro...

Embrace the bomb: The Order is $40 right now on Amazon

If you were hesitant to go all in with The Order: 1886 when it first came out last month, then now may be a good time to see what this cinematic adventure is all about. Currently, Amazon is offering the game for $39.99. Considering the oft-debated length of the Sony exclusive, this just might be the right price for the more stubborn of us. [Amazon]

Review: LA Cops

At first glance, the potential for LA Cops to be an interesting title is great. A top-down shooter in the style of a retro cop squad drama, its main appeal lies in the combination of real-time action with teamwork management, one player using two characters to systematically take down a criminal enterprise. It's just too bad that one of those cops always has to be Barney Fife.

The Order: 1886 won't find safety in the London Underground

I was waiting for a cross-town train in the London Underground when it struck me. I've been waiting since February to find a game that would look and sound like a movie. So, I changed my plans; I rented a PS4 and a TV, and t...

Review: Zombie Army Trilogy

The Sniper Elite series has been around for quite some time, entertaining fans since 2005 on pretty much every platform known to man. But alongside of the core historical-centric games there has been a lesser known sub-franch...

Review: Ironfall: Invasion

Developing a Gears of War-like cover shooter for Nintendo 3DS is unconventional, but that's just what VD-Dev did with Ironfall: Invasion. Featuring both local and online multiplayer, as well as an 11-stage campaign, the project seems fairly ambitious for the handheld, and as you'd expect, there are mixed results. While multiplayer turned out well enough, the campaign is a mess.

The Order: 1886's launch trailer sure looks nifty

Well, I don't know what to believe anymore. This trailer has explosions, lycanthropes, and action up the wazoo. Everything looks so pretty, and the mustaches look real enough that I'm trying to pet them through my computer s...

Splatoon's adorable squids originally looked like tofu

Can you imagine Splatoon's "Inklings" looking more like tofu than squids? Speaking with Famitsu, the shooter's designers (Hisashi Nogami, Yusuke Amano, and Tsubasa Sakaguchi) revealed the creatures actually started out that w...

Review: The Order: 1886

The Order: 1886 opens up in a fairly gritty fashion -- a first-person sequence involving a near drowning, by way of water torture. It begins with a bang, thrusting you into this unknown, and frankly frightening world whe...

The Order: 1886 collector's edition is unboxed, under fire

Third-person shooter protagonists spend a bulk of their time glued to chest-high walls, so it's fitting that the highlight of The Order: 1886's collector's edition depicts this very action. In this unboxing video that P...
