Nintendo eShop: A work in progress

As we creep towards the one-year anniversary of Wii U's launch, players are readying themselves for the second-generation lineup of games that will hopefully make up for the rather dull spring and summer months. But with upco...

The Weekend Hotness: Wings of Freedom, baby

AVGN braves the unholy tide of Tiger LCD games

I knew this day would come. The Angry Video Game Nerd made a video about Tiger's line of LCD handheld games. I've warned you all about the horrors of these infernal contraptions. I even pointed you in the direction of an onl...

Rock and piano covers of the Mighty No. 9 theme

Is anyone else playing and replaying the Mighty No. 9 Kickstarter video and jamming out to the theme song? Because that is totally what I'm doing. It's so great to hear Mega Man 1 composer Manami Matsumae hard at work again,...

Link's Awakening's jams get chopped for MeowMeow & BowWow

The Daily Hotness: 'The Passing of the Blue Crown'

Keiji Inafune dropped mad Mega Man secrets on me photo
Keiji Inafune dropped mad Mega Man secrets on me
by Tony Ponce

Keiji Inafune, are you Kamen Rider?

"As a child, of course, I watched lots of Kamen Rider, so I love that show, but I unfortunately cannot definitively say that I have experience being the masked rider. But I may at one time or another have worn a mask and a suit that was breakaway and gone into my nude form!"

That is an actual question I got to ask the outspoken former Capcom producer during an interview on Sunday, September 1, at the Grand Hyatt hotel smack in the middle of PAX Prime weekend. I never thought I would score the privilege of meeting my game industry hero in person, much less twice in just under three months. For all my whining and moaning, I really am a fortunate guy.

I maintained my composure long enough to make it through our half-hour session, during which I probed Inafune's brain about the recently announced Mighty No. 9 and other gaming happenings. Of course, I also came armed with a few Mega Man queries, the answers to which are nothing short of mind-blowing. Where does the nickname "Inafking" come from? Why does Mega Man's helmet have an exclamation mark on it? And why do the series' characters sometimes look like they're flashing gang signs?

Watch all of Keiji Inafune's 'mighty' PAX panel

Keiji Inafune won PAX Prime 2013, no contest. If you attended PAX and didn't go to his panel, you missed out on being able to personally witness the biggest middle finger to ever be waved in Capcom's general direction. Of co...

PAX highlight: Olimeat and Porkmin

I'm slowly recovering from a wild and crazy PAX weekend. I've been to PAX East twice in the past, but this was my first time attending Prime. It was beyond a doubt the most emotionally polarizing con I have ever attended, fil...

Layton series has sold over 15 million units

Level-5 has kicked the fans in the collective nuts with the complete tonal shift that is Layton 7. That must mean the games are on their last legs and can no longer make bank on Nintendo handhelds alone, right? Not likely if ...

Layton 7 for 3DS and mobile is not MY Layton

I... I brought this upon myself. I said that Layton Brothers: Mystery Room was a great game. I said it was an excellent iOS companion to the traditional Layton series. I never should have had faith that a major gaming compan...
