That upcoming free-to-play Nintendo game? Let out a sigh of relief. We knew the company wouldn't tamper with Mario or Pokemon for its monetization experiment, sure, but we now know which property is going free-to-play and everything's going to be okay. It's Steel Diver, aka that submarine title people bought so they'd have something, anything, to play on their 3DS.

"There is something we're doing with the Steel Diver idea that I think is going to open things up with that game... It's going to be very fun," Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto told IGN. "We're exploring from a perspective of where we can take that from a multiplayer standpoint -- it's going to have this four-player battle mode that I think is going to be very interesting."

Nintendo is said to be concentrating on the balance of providing entertainment value vs. needing to earn some money back from players. This new Steel Diver will also see a physical release and, according to Miyamoto, is "something that we're hoping to be able to show relatively soon."

The Raid is a great action film. It's sequel comes out this Friday. I assume it's also good. I saw a "making of" GIF where they pass a camera through a car window to the passenger seat, which is actually a disguised person, w...more

Review: Rusty's Real Deal Baseball

During the first hour of Rusty's Real Deal Baseball I babysat one of the titular character's 10 kids, played a 4DS, and fed him donuts while I listened to his marital problems. I'm glad Nintendo decided to make this game.more
