You won't find Nintendo Land on the US eShop anymore

In a strange move that no one understands, everyone's favorite Mario factory has recently removed original Wii U pack-in Nintendo Land from the system's eShop. Exactly when, we're not sure. NeoGAF users found the title gone f...

Super Mario 3D World has the most adorable disc art ever

Just a little bit ago, IGN's Jose Otero tweeted out a picture of the disc art for Super Mario 3D World, and I basically had a mini heart attack after seeing my main man Mario featured prominently on it. We all know Catsuit Ma...

Review: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes photo
Review: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes
by Brett Zeidler

Star WarsIndiana JonesBatman (later the entirety of DC), Pirates of the CaribbeanHarry Potter, and The Lord of the Rings -- arguably a majority of the world's largest entertainment properties -- have all been brought to life in videogames after being passed through the adorable LEGO filter by Traveller's Tales. And, well, they've handled each franchise masterfully and created some truly great games with each of them over the years. What could possibly be next?

I can't be the only one who's been dreaming since LEGO Star Wars that we would one day see LEGO Marvel make its videogame debut, but, seeing as Traveller's Tales is a subsidy of Warner Bros., it was seemingly never going to happen. However, by some remarkable turn of events (due to the magic of licensing), here we are with LEGO Marvel Super Heroes.

It's nothing short of a miracle this game was even made, but it's something we can only be happy about.

The Daily Hotness: Destiny box art blues

Out of all the things that happened today, there's one specific thing I'd like to address here: I don't think the Destiny box art is that bad. Is it just me? Surely I can't be the only one? There's definitely worse box art ou...

The Daily Hotness: SteamOS

Well, lots of people have been demanding it, and it's finally a thing that exists. Oh, and for free! For the uninformed, Valve announced its very own flavor of Linux to be SteamOS. From the little we know, is this exactly the...
