Namco Bandai's European wing recently registered a new set of domains, unearthing eight titles that potentially could see western releases in the not too distant future. The batch includes a domain for a Short Peace game, ind...


 

It's probably the 12-year-old in me that digs this new commercial for PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures 2. Burping with force waves? Cool. Sound effect stand-ins for farts? Love it. The scream-y Ask Ketchum/Naruto voice over narrator? Tops, man.  Not going to lie: I've watched this more than once. I'm also pretty proud of my screenshot of the boy belching.


 

I won't lie; I was tempted to just post Lady Gaga lyrics as I hum the tune and then call it a day. That would do a disservice to the game Paparazzi, which was featured in the Indiecade showcase at E3 2014. We missed it then,...


 

Paradise Lost: First Contact, otherwise known as "that game with all of the squiggles," will not launch on PC, Mac, Linux, and Wii U this year as originally intended. Developer Asthree Works is pushing the release of the alie...


 

WaterMelon's homebrew project Pier Solar and the Great Architects pushed the Sega Genesis to its limits as a new release in 2010 (!) which I thought was courageous, at the time. Still do. The game shipped on an actual cartrid...


 

Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto has been working on little, animated Pikmin shorts instead of making games. Good for him. I want him to make wine next. Coppola did it.  Pikmin Short Movies goes on sale after this Ninte...


 

Pokemon Rumble U dropped last week on the Wii U eShop, and surprisingly, it's the first game that features the integration of NFC (Near field communication) technology on the Wii U. It's a feature that's been there since...


 

A short while ago we informed you of the existence of a new Pokemon game in the Scramble line, called Pokemon Scramble U. Now, the official site is open for business, and hot damn is it adorable! Most of the content is marked...


 

Pokemon is such a strong franchise that even most of the spin-offs can stand on their own. The core generational releases are among my favorite RPGs, but the Game Boy Color Trading Card Game, the Mystery Dungeon series, and Pokemon Snap are some of the most enjoyable games I've ever played due to the amount of care that goes into them. Then there's the Pokemon Rumble series.


 

This is vaguely the same footage of Pokkén Tournament we've seen over the past couple weeks, but it's a direct capture of the game, so what the hell. Good recap of the current roster, though do note that the voice over and text are in Japanese. Long way to go before this'll get localized. What's going on with Pikachu (starting at 1:25)? That expression is Kirby-in-the-USA angry.


 

I'll admit it -- when I first heard about Project CARS, I didn't give it much thought. It doesn't help that the name is fairly ho hum, and it's been ages since developer Slightly Mad Studios worked on Need for Speed...


 

I've always found Nintendo to be endearing, but that feeling has grown stronger ever since the company started doing its Nintendo Direct presentations and silly skits like this. We first met Fils-a-Mech earlier this year and...


 

There were a couple of things that made the now-disbanded Clover Studio a special team. From God Hand to Viewtiful Joe to Okami, each of their games took a uniquely Japanese idea (apocalypse-the...


 

Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada made an appearance during today's Nintendo Direct presentation to announce Project Treasure, an upcoming Wii U exclusive from Bandai Namco. While details on the title are scarce, it be a free-to-play four-player co-op action game where "the basic aim is to clear traps, route enemies, and seize treasure."


 

The story of Puddle is a tale of triumph. A group of students had the opportunity to have their game published by Konami after winning a 2010 GDC Independent Games Festival award -- pretty much every young developer's dream. ...


 

Good news, everyone! Some time ago, the European gaming community was up in arms because Nintendo gave them an inferior version of Balloon Fight on the Wii U Virtual Console. It appears as if Nintendo was listening, as F-Zero...


 

People say Nintendo never does anything original outside of Mario and Zelda -- but as we all know, that's absolutely not true. Not only has the company taken chances on wacky IPs all throughout its storied history, but the ad...


 

Of all of the games to get a PS4 remake, you'd probably never put Putty Squad, an SNES game from 1994, at the top of the list. But here we are in 2014 with a full-on re-imagining, with more or less the same platforming mechanics that still work nearly 20 years later. The only problem is, System 3 Software has opted to charge $29.99 for a decidedly dated game -- which is a bit of a problem.
