Even more 'Game Overs' in storybook rhyme

A couple weeks back, brentalfloss the comic began an arc parodying the dark comedy children's book The Gashlycrumb Tinies -- that book's author, Edward Gorey, is the subject of today's Google Doodle, by the by. Anyway, "The G...

Kirby Super Star can ruin friendships

Kirby Super Star. That was the game where we first saw Egoraptor and JonTron's friendship almost DISSOLVE RIGHT BEFORE OUR EYES. The comedy duo usually gets along pretty well for the most part in all the games they play, but...

Nintendo reveals dates for Virtual Console anniversary photo
Nintendo reveals dates for Virtual Console anniversary
by Chris Carter

This whole "Virtual Console 30th Anniversary" thing has been a bit confusing for all of us. So here's the scoop now that the dust has settled: on certain dates this year, you'll have the opportunity to download select games on the Wii U eShop for 30 cents, for a limited time.

That's it. There's no catch, it's just a promotion to get people into the eShop -- like a virtual doorbuster sale.

It's not a "trial" version of the game that ends after 30 days -- you just pay the 30 cents and you get to keep it. All Wii U Virtual Console games have full GamePad remote play support, and the ability to fully customize your controls.

With that said, Nintendo has revealed the full list of exact dates for all of the planned games, so make sure you bookmark this page as a reference!

Review: Kirby's Dream Collection photo
Review: Kirby's Dream Collection
by Jim Sterling

My love of Kirby is known far and wide. While the games themselves are incredibly simple, the sheer charm of the titular hero and his colorful world makes for endearing, unforgettable adventures. Kirby has also seen some of the most dramatic changes of any Nintendo franchise -- from the total visual overhaul in Epic Yarn to the ten-Kirby puzzling of Mass Attack, it's a series that's not afraid to be different.

The spherical warrior celebrates his 20th anniversary this year, and Nintendo has not forgotten. Kirby's Dream Collection is a lovingly crafted look back on the publisher's underdog hero, packed with games, memories, and even a cartoon or two. It's also better than anything Nintendo did for Mario's anniversary.

That was a surprise.

Egoraptor & JonTron twiddle their sticks, play some games

One does silly cartoons. The other does silly videogame retrospectives. Put 'em together under the same roof and watch out! Sounds like the premise to a wacky prime time sitcom. So Egoraptor and JonTron decided it was time f...

SDCC: Taking on Kirby's Dream Collection challenge mode
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Kirby's Dream Collection is a bundle of some of the best Kirby games ever for the Wii in celebration of the 20th anniversary. Just the fact it contains Kirby's Super Star is enough for me, and the added bonus of the Kirby soundtrack CD is like icing on the cake.

If that's not enough, Nintendo is throwing in a new challenge mode to give something new to longtime fans of the series.

Have a taste of the Kirby's Dream Collection bonus CD

Bundled with the Super Mario All-Stars Wii port was a music sampler containing select tracks from the entire series -- nothing all that remarkable. Nintendo stepped its game up on Skyward Sword with a beautiful symphonic CD....
