Review: Resident Evil: Revelations 2: Episode 1 photo
Review: Resident Evil: Revelations 2: Episode 1
by Chris Carter

Resident Evil is in a weird place. After the middling Resident Evil 6 and the public flogging of Operation Raccoon City, I'm sure Capcom got the message that it needed to go back to basics. It did just that with Revelations on the Nintendo 3DS, which was met with enough positivity to warrant a full-on set of console ports.

Then Capcom reached overwhelming amounts of success with Resident Evil HD, a game that's as basic as you get in terms of fundamental survivor horror. Resident Evil: Revelations 2 may be more action-oriented than some other entries, but it's a damn fine showing for the series.

It looks like the Mega Man board game is nearly done

It sure looks like a lot of work to create a licensed board game. After its announcement and Kickstarter campaign in July of 2013, the creators of the Mega Man Board Game are nearly finished, barring some final approvals from...

How often do you use the 3DS' StreetPass functionality?

It's been a while since I've asked people about StreetPassing. Nintendo's feature was pretty innovative at launch, but given the low number of 3DS sales it was hard to find someone to do it with. Now it feels like everyone an...

Fatal Fury Final, a fanmade beat-'em-up, is now out on PC

As we all know, Fatal Fury started off as a traditional fighting game in 1991. But over the years the cast has seem some genre crossover, even into the shoot-'em-up arena with one of my personal favorites, KOF Sky ...

Spawn creator says that it's ok to use the character in Mortal Kombat X

Some may call Spawn a teenage power fantasy, but I still love him. As one of my favorite comics, SNES games, and TV shows growing up (the movie is still good B-level cheese), underneath the mask Spawn is a pretty complex and ...

The hunt is on for the Meta Knight amiibo, here is what I found photo
The hunt is on for the Meta Knight amiibo, here is what I found
by Chris Carter

[Update: Get this. One amiibo hunter is reporting that you can get $5 off any Wii U or 3DS game nationwide if your store does not have Meta Knight in stock. Even if your store denies you, it doesn't hurt to ask!]

Today, Best Buy has opened their doors across the country and welcomed amiibo hunters. Well, they're only welcoming a select few of them of course, because stock is universally low for their exclusive Meta Knight amiibo.

As I've done with a few major amiibo launches, I made a stop at a few Best Buy locations today to gauge their stock at retail, and it seems about on par with the rest of the exclusive releases.

Very Quick Tips: Pokémon Shuffle photo
Very Quick Tips: Pokémon Shuffle
by Chris Carter

Pokémon Shuffle has an under-handed microtransaction system that heavily relies on making you wait to play, unless you pay.

But for some of you, casually picking up five games per day will be enough, and there is some fun to be had when you wade through all the nonsense. Here are some tips to help you stay free.

Finally, a Sonic Runners trailer with all gameplay

"It looks good if the microtransactions don't ruin it." Why do I get my hopes up for Sonic games? Am I part of the dreaded "Sonic Cycle?" Sometimes. Every so often DIMPS or Sonic Team will crank out a good game like Gen...
