Abandon all hope, Meta Knight is back in Super Smash Bros.

The French Super Smash Bros. site has a nice little gallery up with Wii U and 3DS screens of everyone's favorite Brawler, Meta Knight. Hoping for any other stragglers to get announced, or new characters? ALSO: Sakurai's Miive...

Take a closer look at PDP's GameCube-style controllers for Wii U

I think I'll be perfectly set with the GameCube controller adapter for Wii U, but PDP's line of GameCube-inspired controllers (known officially as "Wired Fight Pads") are another valid option. Courtesy of Amazon, we now have ...

Zant brings his craziness to Hyrule Warriors

Zant the Usurper King was confirmed for Hyrule Warriors recently, and man does he look wacky. In addition to flailing his arms around as his main method of attack you can also get a peek at the man behind the mask during a f...

Super Smash Bros on 3DS is getting this neat Game Boy stage

I had ever intention to just play the Wii U version of Super Smash Bros. I think I'm going to have to check out the 3DS version now though after seeing there's going to be a Game Boy stage.  Sakurai even threw in a "ba-d...

What's Up: Final Fantasy All the Lamest, Nintendo pre-order peril, and don't drink Fireball
by Bill Zoeker

I'm back and feeling better. I got sucked into the shady money scam known as Final Fantasy All the Bravest, got annoyed by Hyrule Warrior's retail-exclusive pre-order bonuses, and recount mistakes made with Fireball whiskey.

Here's a look at what's happening at gamescom

We've already gotten the news from Activision's Call of Duty event earlier today but there's plenty of big things happening at gamescom this week. Here's an idea of when you're going to hear all the news from Microsoft, Sony,...

Dumb: Skyward Sword DLC exclusive to Best Buy, Twilight Princess to Amazon

Hyrule Warriors' triforce of corporate garbage is complete. GameStop got the fan-favorite Ocarina garb, while pre-ordering from Amazon nets you Twilight Princess threads for Link and Zelda. Best Buy has Skyward Swor...

Lone Survivor vs. GTA V: Proof that David can coexist with Goliath

Lone Survivor is one of the most unexpectedly effective games I've ever played. It makes survival horror work in 2D. It feels like a tribute to Silent Hill and a deeply personal expression of developer Jasper Byrne's perspect...

No plans for Amiibo support for Hyrule Warriors

A few weeks ago, Patrick Hancock and I rambled off our hopes, fears, and predictions for the next Smash Bros. Somewhere in there was the idea that Ganondorf may not be playable, in part because of Smash Bros 4's focus on amii...

What's the point? Wii U gets Black Ops II map almost two years later

The Wii U often gets the shaft in terms of DLC. It either gets it late, not at all, or is left completely in the wind as to what the status is. Nearly every major publisher has pulled one of these moves, most notably Activisi...

Hyrule Warriors GameStop-exclusive DLC finally confirmed

We've known that Hyrule Warriors will have some form of outfit DLC for some time (as well as how to get it in Japan), but info has been scarce in terms of how to grab it overseas. Well, this week the details have been sp...

Mega Man 5 hits Wii U, Mega Man StreetPass puzzle hits 3DS

Rehashing is not new for Capcom. Still, does it feel like, just maybe, the excitement over Keiji Inafune's two not-Mega Men has spurred Capcom to release a bunch of Mega Man stuff this month? Maybe. Mega Man 5 ...

Hive Jump shows off some stunning running and gunning on Kickstarter

We have seen a lot of metroidvanias come out of Kickstarter in recent years, and a handful of more Mega Man-like games, but games like Contra have not gotten a lot of love from the crowdfunding platform. Hive Jump looks like...

Today is a very Virtual Console-y day on Nintendo Download, with Super Mario Kart, Mega Man 5, and Cybernator coming to the Wii U. Also, Jett Tailfin and Shut the Box come to the Wii U eShop. On the 3DS we have...

Virtual Console Verdict: Mega Man Battle Network

I can't remember the first tactical game I ever played. The first one that stands out in my mind is Tactics Ogre, but I'm sure I dabbled in some NES games without truly knowing what I was doing. What I would never expect grow...
