Nintendo is patching a "bug" in Tomodachi Collection: New Life that allows male characters to date, marry, and even raise children with one another. The company has announced an update will fix "human relationships that become strange" in its 3DS. Problems with booting up, saving, and various other issues are also being addressed.

Tomodachi Collection: New Life has spent the last few weeks dominating Japanese sales charts, shifting over 750,000 units to date. Regardless of the intentions behind the patch, it's certain to disappoint more than a few fans. Many were excited by the bug's presence, hoping Nintendo would either ignore it or extend the same liberties to female characters.

Brighten your morning with I am Bread

It's been over a month and, conceptually, I am Bread still tickles me. I'm giggling over the prospect of sentient bread going on a quest to become toasted (what happens next?). Ahead of the game's Steam Early Access release ...more

Even failing looks fun in Heat Signature

Just like with Gunpoint, it's a joy to watch designer Tom Francis play Heat Signature, wonky wrench physics and all, while it's still in development. It's as if he's making the game solely for himself and, hey, if the rest o...more
