Nintendo: Wii U GameCube adapter 'has not been discontinued'

The Wii U GameCube controller adapter has been hard to get hold of, with the last remnant orders seemingly being cancelled by online retailers. However,  Nintendo of Europe gave a statement to Nintendo Life assuring...

Nya! Good god, Tekken 7's Lucky Chloe is anime as hell

I have a strong urge to get very, very good at Tekken 7 and just piss off (mostly western) players by beating them endlessly with this stupid cat girl.

Uncharted 4 trailer analysis: Hints at improvements over Uncharted 3 photo
Uncharted 4 trailer analysis: Hints at improvements over Uncharted 3
by Steven Hansen

"Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa" - Nathan Drake. 

As Chris mentioned when the trailer debuted at PlayStation Experience, Uncharted 4 looks, "very Uncharted." There are Nolan North quips at everything you see. The dark and dingy cave gives way to a sun-washed, cinematic vista as three birds fly by right as your eyes adjust to the sun.

The climbing, too, looks same as it ever was, save for the addition of a centuries-old, apparently indestructible soft-rock-climbing dagger. And a grappling hook, which was at least used once. 

But while the base mechanics are familiar, the layout, at least as it appears in this trailer, is different, and that's why I'm a bit more excited for A Thief's End after being less impressed with Uncharted 3

PS4's faceplate game cannot touch the New 3DS

Stuck with a boring PS4 because you can't afford or missed the 20th Anniversary one, or you bought the black one before the white one existed?  Sony's got your back. In limited quantities. For a fee. It starts with smal...

Sony Santa Monica is working on a new God of War

At the PlayStation Experience, God of War II director Cory Barlog confirmed a new God of War is in development. Sony Santa Monica joked coyly,  tweeting, "Don't tell anyone what @corybarlog just said," before follow...

Drawn to Death: A PS4 arena shooter from David Jaffe photo
Drawn to Death: A PS4 arena shooter from David Jaffe
by Steven Hansen

"They said I could cuss." Oh, Jaffe.

Jaffe's (Twisted Metal, God of War) new studio's PS4 exclusive (in conjunction with Sony San Diego) is Drawn to Death, a third-person arena shooter set in a high school kid's violent notebook. That should get someone sent to a principal's office.

There are a number of different characters and some oddball weapons, like a dragon stuffed with gasoline breathing fire. Oh, teens. That everything--levels, guns, characters--comes from some teen's messed up imagination could make for a lot of wild, interesting stuff.

Drawn to Death is playable at PlayStation Experience, but in pre-alpha, so the team will be impromptu focus-testing at the show.

Not enough gorgeous 2D games? Skytorn coming to PS4

Gorgeous, procedurally generated Metroidvania, basically. It's joining an enormous group of games, yet they all seem to have a distinctive enough art style that I get excited for all of them. Though I'd rather play them on Vita than PS4, probably. Oh well. Skytorn looks lovely.

Steal your enemies limbs and use them in Severed

I still get giddy over Sir Dan in MediEvil using his own arm as a starting weapon. In Severed, you'll hack up enemies and use their body parts to make you even stronger. And, like Guacamelee, it's stylish as heck.

Enter the Gungeon: Go get a big gun and kill the past

Devolver Digital has announced it is publishing Enter the Gungeon next year. Something about, "A gun...THAT CAN KILL THE PAST" just won me over. I don't even have to understand what it means. Plus there's table fli...

The new Legend of Zelda has sunsets, apple picking photo
The new Legend of Zelda has sunsets, apple picking
by Steven Hansen

So the new Legend of Zelda is doing the, "Look, you can go anywhere you see in the distance" thing. And doing the, "our world is huge, look at our map, look at our waypoint system" thing. Shigeru Miyamoto and Eiji Aonuma did a lil recorded video showing off Link running towards sunsets and through lush grass.

The map would take "a very long time to walk." So there's automatic horse riding to way points, allowing you to do things like shoot arrows and move the camera while on horseback. "Real horses don't run into trees very often," they explain. There's some bullet-time-like slow motion as well.

Oh, and you can pick and eat apples!

That's about all they showed, as it would've taken a few more minutes to get to wherever they were supposed to be heading.

No Man's Sky also has purple, is still amazing

No Man's Sky showed off a particularly purple planet in its Game Awards trailer. It's still exciting, walking amidst bioluminscent fauna and dinosaurs, getting into your ship and zipping off to another planet. Oh, and t...

The Banner Saga 2 announced, looks gorgeous

Stoic has announced The Banner Saga 2 at the Game Awards, a sequel to the Disney-looking strategy-RPG that Kyle loved early this year (his review).  We'll get that beautiful trailer up when it's uploaded somewhere.

Metal Gear Online has Fulton sentries, puppy plushies  photo
Metal Gear Online has Fulton sentries, puppy plushies

I thought Metal Gear Online was neat on PS3 outside of Konami's separate log-in system. At the Game Awards, Hideo Kojima introduced a trailer for the online aspect of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Metal Gear Online.

And it looks sweet as heck, just like Phantom Pain. A cute puppy plush has replaced MGSIV's nudie mag distraction trap, there's a mini, personal bipedal robot with a gun, Quiet-like stealth abilities, some sort of teleportation, and a sentry that shoots people with Fulton balloons, which you can shoot and pop before they send your teammate flying in the air. 

Tons of cool-looking, idiosyncratic mechanics. I am so excited for Metal Gear Solid V.

Oh, and that selfie at the end.

Buy these nine games to support the Ferguson Public Library photo
Buy these nine games to support the Ferguson Public Library
by Steven Hansen

Altruism is better when you get something in return. Contradictory? Sure. Ignoble? Someone will tell you why from their high horse. But wouldn't it be sweet if in paying your internet bill or buying a new blender, all the proceeds went to the World Wildlife Fund or Doctor's Without Borders. You get something, the world gets something, Comcast gets nothing. In a perfect world.

Of course, we live in a tragically imperfect world, which is why game developers have bundled nine games together, "in support of the Ferguson Public Library and in solidarity with protesters resisting antiblack state violence and white supremacy."

For $9 (or more), you'll get 9 games, 8 of which are provided as direct downloads, the 9th as a Steam key because of the filesize. All proceeds go to the Ferguson Public Library. The bundle will be up until tomorrow, December 6, at 11:59 Eastern. If you do donate, make sure to download your games before then, as the bundle page will be taken down then.
