I'm looking out my window as I type this and what I see is a mostly overcast sky and lots of drab grays and blues. It's sleepy. What I'd rather be looking at are these warm, teeming-with-life screenshots from Jonathan Blow's ... more

Trinket Studios' Battle Chef Brigade has come out of seemingly nowhere, but looking over the first artwork for this fantasy cooking competition game, the team has surely been hard at work on the concept behind the scenes for ... more
That's my hope, anyway. Cuphead is one of those games I feel bad for not noticing sooner. Sporting a remarkable sense of style and animation, this looks to represent the best of the run-and-gun genre, with developer Studio M... more
Kotaku received some pictures of what appears to be a Luigi-themed 2DS. I want it. It's a simple white with green trimmings (buttons and so on) and a Luigi etched into the back. It's a lot cleaner than the cool, but busy Luig... more
The Astronauts' The Vanishing of Ethan Carter continues to look intriguing. And stunning -- gosh, these new screenshots are lovely. Presented from a first-person perspective, this PC (and eventually next-gen console, if every... more

Though I'm not too crazy about a lot of what Capcom has been doing lately -- boy, that's an understatement -- it nonetheless holds a special place in my heart as the first gaming company I truly admired. Games like Mega Man, ... more
The National Entertainment Collectibles Association, a.k.a. NECA, has just revealed a new San Diego Comic-Con-exclusive figurine of Friday the 13th's Jason Voorhees. Now, why would I be talking about film merch on a videogame... more

There were some interesting tidbits revealed about the design of Destiny. Presented by studio writer and design director Joe Staten and art director Christopher Barrett, they went into detail about the early conception of De... more
Running through the list of bullet points for Chasm, it's hard not to freak out. A 2D action-RPG platformer that's set up like a Metroidvania with procedural dungeons and loot drops is too much to take in all at once. Then y... more
That Link figma by Max Factory which went on sale last year? It is now garbage. Find the closest waste receptacle and chuck that sh*t in there with extreme prejudice. That Link on Epona statue by First 4 Figures? It doesn't e... more
Why didn't anybody tell me this book came out last month!? I've been waiting for this baby a whole year! Where's my wallet!?
Let me step back a bit: 31 Days of Zero Suit Samus is a collection of miniature comics depicting wha... more
HNNNNNG! My heart can't take much more of this! I think I'm going to slip into a coma before the Archie Sonic / Mega Man crossover even begins. But I've got to hold on! Just one month left!
To bring everyone up to speed, the ... more
I frequently think about game items and how they could have feasible real-world applications. For example, a scale model of Eddie from the Mega Man series would make a great novelty cooler, which would sync up perfectly with ... more
Like that D-Arts Bass action figure I talked about the other week? Pretty sexy, ain't it? And remember how I said it was highly likely that Bandai would try to bring it to US retail?
Distributor Bluefin has got your back! Not... more
Between the four-person multiplayer, seven new levels, and inclusion of Pale Wing, I am so ready to play through Earth Defense Force 2017 again on the PlayStation Vita. Mentally, that is -- I still don't have a Vita to play i... more

We knew that Wing Commander creator Chris Roberts was getting back into game development, although the specifics weren't so clear until now. At GDC Online today in Austin, he revealed what the project is all about in less con... more
Slender is one of the scariest experiences I've ever had. Mastering the art of simplicity and exploiting it to create a true sense of paranoia and fear, the indie game based on the Slender Man mythos is impossible to forget. ... more
I'm still reeling from this morning's Mega Man shenanigans. I can at least take comfort in knowing that some companies still give a damn about the little blue dude. Like Archie Comics, for example...

I was a Sega child, so I was always in the "Sonic > Mario" camp. I've also been a Mega Man diehard (big surprise, right?) since his very first game. So while schoolyard kiddies spoke passionately of the rivalry between Mar... more
Many horror games have played with the idea of a helpless protagonist, heightening the tension for a player by reducing their combat abilities and forcing them to survive, rather than fight. Krillbite's Among the Sleep takes... more

Bandai is alright by me. For some time now, the company has been been making high-quality Mega Man X action figures as part of its D-Arts line. So far, there have been about five bajillion versions of X alone (regular, armore... more
Who doesn't love physical game maps? Anybody own a cloth map? Those were the days. Now, instead of a cloth map, how about a 3D recreation with several monsters figurines roaming the land? Sound good?
Sometime in March, Square... more

Such was the case with Armored Core 5, whose crum... more
People frequently ask me the question "What's you're favorite line from the game No More Heroes 2?" I usually respond with "Poopie... Now I have the sad face." Then they say, "Don't get all cute with me guy, just tell me the... more
