I can't make sense of this live-action Sportsball trailer

This trailer for Sportsball -- not to be confused with Action Button Entertainment's Videoball; the narrator's delivery reminded me of Tim Rogers, a bit -- is something else. I feel like I need to watch it about four more ti...

YouTube allows update for 60fps, test it on this Mario Kart 8 video

Mario Kart 8 is a pretty damn good game, and I've been playing it more recently to prep for the new DLC. In other Mario Kart 8 news (sort of), YouTube has just updated its infrastructure to support 60fps videos, an...

Costume Quest 2 knocks on Xbox's door today

As it turns out, the duration of that Costume Quest 2 timed-exclusive on PlayStation wasn't all that long. Like, one day. But, that's okay because it means that everyone will have it in time for Halloween. That's s...

Mario Kart 8's take on Excitebike makes me smile

Excitebike Arena is one of the DLC courses included in Mario Kart 8's DLC Pack 1 and even if you don't need a trailer to convey why Excitebike and Mario Kart are a winning combination, be sure to watch the video for the musi...

The EU/AU regions are getting a Shovel Knight 3DS theme

Shovel Knight came, saw, and conquered in a few territories. I've even see a few people say that it's their game of the year, which is awesome. But some regions haven't gotten the game yet, and as a result, Yacht Club Games i...

In fact, there is so much new stuff that I could hardly cover it all, so instead I am sharing my boiled-down list of the 8 most interesting things that I think Nintendo has done well for Smash U, and the 8 things I think could use some work.

Pikmin short films look amazing, coming soon to 3DS

When Nintendo first announced they were working on 3 short films about Pikmin, many feared they'd go the route of those Wind Waker from a while back. They weren't exactly bad, but they didn't use original art asset...

Nintendo has kids explain amiibo figures in Super Smash Bros.

I made it to the closeup of Mario's face, roughly a minute in, before deciding that I needed to share this ridiculous video in which a boy buys an amiibo for Super Smash Bros. to impress a girl. Kyle says it's the worst thin...

Review: Bayonetta 2
by Chris Carter

Outside of Devil May Cry 3, Bayonetta is one of the finest action games of all time. The action systems were so clean, so precise, and so rewarding that it leaves pretty much everything these days in the dust.

All the Smash Bros. Wii U facts, differences from 3DS version
by Steven Hansen

Watch along with the video above, or read along with my jumbled attempts at saving you 35 minutes by jotting down all this new information on the Wii U version of Super Smash Bros., which is just a month away.
