Capcom made money this quarter without a big, new release

More quarter 1 for the fiscal year 2015 fun times. Capcom. Haven't heard much out of them while we wait for Monster Hunter. Their E3 line-up was slim. I played the 3DS port of the Ace Attorney trilogy. So, Capcom? Its nu...

Ubisoft's Michel Ancel is starting an indie studio on the side

This fan-made Super Smash Bros. trailer looks official

Content creator Dean Wright has posted a new video on his YouTube, and it's pretty damn awesome if you're a Smash Bros. or Mario fan. The clip involves Mario (in his Smash Bros. style) running through Tokyo, "...

Onechanbara Z2: Chaos trailer full of tits, upskirts, and murder

Holy crap, that song it goes into around the 45-second mark is so damn bad. Onechanbara Z2: Chaos is hitting PS4 in Japan this October, where it can hopefully help shift some units, as the PS4 library isn't tickling the country's collective fancy. Looks I lot better than the Onechanbara I played on Wii.

Final Fantas-free: 14 day Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn trial

Square Enix is offering 14 days of free Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn on PC. As someone who doesn't like MMOs, but likes Final Fantasy, I might just try it out. Fourteen may be the perfect number of days for me to get my fill. Or maybe I'll find myself a convert and end up a paying customer, as Square Enix likely hopes.

Man, I wish I were playing Crypt of the NecroDancer right now

Are you playing Crypt of the NecroDancer? You should be playing Crypt of the NecroDancer. It's a rhythm-based roguelike in which you hop around dungeons to the beat of music, a novel mechanic that ends up being enjoyable -- n...

Final reminder: It's the last day to get your free Wii U game with Mario Kart 8 photo
Final reminder: It's the last day to get your free Wii U game with Mario Kart 8
by Jordan Devore

If you ordered Mario Kart 8 and somehow neglected to register your copy for one of the free Wii U games Nintendo is giving out, this is the final day to do so.

Just redeem the code printed on the insert using Club Nintendo, or link your Club Nintendo account to your Wii U before buying Mario Kart 8 if you're getting the title digitally.

The choices are, again, Pikmin 3, The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD, New Super Mario Bros. U, and Wii Party U in North America. Europe is offering those, plus Game & Wario, Sonic Lost World, Nintendo Land, The Wonderful 101, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, and Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games. (What'd you get, by the way?)

Most of you who were going to register Mario Kart 8 probably did so already, so here's a potentially more useful nudge: don't forget to check your status in the Deluxe Digital Promotion if you're a Wii U Deluxe Set owner. You might just have a $5 eShop code in there.

This trailer for Breath of Fire 6 is as pretty as I expected, but that's about it

This animated trailer is absolutely stunning, but it does not do much to enthuse me for Breath of Fire 6. Breath of Fire 6, subtitled Guardians of the White Dragon, is set to be published as an online, web-based role-pl...

Celebrate the Game Boy's 25th birthday with this free OC ReMix album photo
Celebrate the Game Boy's 25th birthday with this free OC ReMix album
by Jordan Devore

25 years ago, the Game Boy launched in North America. Do you still have yours?

The folks at OverClocked ReMix have put together a celebratory arrangement album, Legacy: Game Boy 25th Anniversary, featuring 15 songs from games like Tetris, Super Mario Land, Pokémon Red, Mega Man II, and Batman. Listen to it for free here (or torrent here).

Perfect timing -- I was sorely in need of more music to work to. I'm willing to bet good money that if I dug my Game Boy out of storage, it'd still have enough of a charge to play Qix or whichever game I left in the cartridge slot when I last used the handheld years ago.
