Watch me beat the third and final Mighty No. 9 beta level, out today photo
Watch me beat the third and final Mighty No. 9 beta level, out today
by Chris Carter

The Mighty No. 9 beta has updated with its third and "final" stage, the Power Plant. This morning I decided to give it a go, and here are the results of my second playthrough of it. As usual this is a zero death run, quick and simple through the level.

I would say that this is the easiest stage on offer, and although it has a few cool concepts, some of them are half measures. Comcept will definitely have to step it up if they want to make Mighty No. 9 as memorable as some other recent platformers, but so far it's not bad at all.

If you missed the first and second levels you can check out my other videos linked herein.

Review: Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus photo
Review: Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus
by Brittany Vincent

In the world of Senran Kagura, excess is the rule. The outfits are skimpy, the plot threads are ludicrous, and the breasts are laughably large, so huge in fact that you wonder how the skimpy bras the girls are eventually stripped down to are actually wrangling those things.

But beneath a veneer of silliness and near-parodical levels of fan service lies a brawler with plenty of hack and slash goodness to offer.

PlayStation TV is out, wait, tomorrow?!

When PlayStation TV was first announced for Japan, I was fond of the device, at least conceptually, as someone who still doesn't own a PS Vita (sorry, Steven). But I haven't given the microconsole much thought since then -- i...

Conan O'Brien will give you a clue in LEGO Batman 3

Conan O'Brien, the famed late-night talk show host and self-professed clueless gamer, will be reversing roles of sorts for his part in LEGO Batman 3. Instead of being confounded by videogames, he's going to be playing himsel...

Hotline Miami 2 might not be done until early 2015

Hearing that Dennaton Games is taking more time to polish up Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number -- it's now looking like late 2014 or early 2015 -- sits well with me. Totally okay with waiting. I know that should be the default r...

Pix the Cat is out now and its Nostalgia mode is sweet

For the same reasons I was excited as heck for Cuphead, I am loving Pix the Cat's Snake-like Nostalgia Mode for reminding me of Felix the Cat and 20s animation in general.  And then you realize everything else about this game is nuts and that it's just been released for free for PlayStation Plus members so I'm going to go download that jam right now before my subscription lapses.

Enjoy these free remixed Spelunky jams
by Jordan Devore

Oh, cool! There's a new Spelunky EP up on Bandcamp and it's totally free, whether you're streaming or downloading. (Though you may want to consider tipping if you like what you hear.)

This is a nine-track EP with several guest contributions including one from Mega Man's Manami Matsumae. My favorite is "Smells like wet funk," and that's only partially because of the fun name.

Related: Spelunky is out on PS4 today. If you own it for PS3/PS Vita, this new version is free.

Fenix Rage is a rad little take on Super Meat Boy

Fenix Rage was recently released by developer Green Lava Studios, and in short, it's basically a take on Super Meat Boy's time trial platforming gameplay. Every map consists of a cookie (band-aid) to pick up, and a goal ...

The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth teased for Wii U

Fans of The Binding of Isaac have long wanted the game on 3DS and while that'd be great to see one day, I'd be just as happy to to have it on Wii U. Which might actually happen! I know! Nicalis uploaded this video yesterday and that blip at the beginning sure is a Wii U overlay. There's also this Twitter exchange between designer Edmund McMillen and Nicalis' Tyrone Rodriguez.

Still waiting for a new 2D Metroid? Take a look at Beyond Human photo
Still waiting for a new 2D Metroid? Take a look at Beyond Human
by Darren Nakamura

Every few months, I think about how great Metroid: Zero Mission and Metroid Fusion were. So, so great. Why isn't Nintendo doing more like that? I don't know, but the indie community seems to share my lamentation, creating games like Ghost Song: A Journey of Hope, Paradise Lost: First Contact, and Axiom Verge. If things turn out well, we can add Beyond Human to that list.

Beyond Human has a few influences it calls back to: Metroid, Mega Man, and Devil May Cry. Each manifests in a different way in the trailer, but all three are definitely present. As a neat backer reward, the protagonist here can don a few custom outfits (seen below) that pay homage to those classics.

Developer DT Studios has recently put Beyond Human up on Kickstarter, with a base goal of €20,000. It is planned for release on Windows, Mac, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita.

Review: Natural Doctrine photo
Review: Natural Doctrine
by Kyle MacGregor

Natural Doctrine is a strategy role-playing game with a sadistic side. It's a brutal and uncompromising experience, one keen on taxing players and pushing them to their limits with its intense difficulty.

The architects behind the title invite comparisons with Dark Souls, and have certainly built a similarly steep hill to climb. Natural Doctrine is enigmatic and soul-crushing, but lacks execution and awareness. Simply being tough as nails doesn't make an experience rewarding.

Enough teasing: Vib-Ribbon is headed to PlayStation Network

There was an out-of-nowhere nod to Vib-Ribbon at Sony's E3 press conference this year, and then nothing. No follow-up announcement. That wasn't very nice at all. But everything will be better, soon enough: the cult PlayStatio...

The Vita now has themes, finally

I've been a Vita owner since launch, and it's funny to see it go from a relatively feature-free device to what it is today. Now with update 3.30 you can get a number of themes for your Vita, ranging from Uncharted t...
