The Legend of Zelda

12-05-2014

So the new Legend of Zelda is doing the, "Look, you can go anywhere you see in the distance" thing. And doing the, "our world is huge, look at our map, look at our waypoint system" thing. Shigeru Miyamoto and Eiji ...


 

Mario Maker

12-05-2014

As shown at tonight's Game Awards, Mario Maker is still in the works for a 2015 release and good lord does it look insane. Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto introduced new footage of the Wii U title and several of the user-created...

The Deer God

11-28-2014

In a lot of ways, The Deer God is a love letter to nature. The idea was born from the developers' childhood memories of playing in the woods and seeing wild deer, and that admiration of the outdoors is quite apparent. The for...


 

Gotouchi Tetsudou

11-18-2014

Gotouchi Tetsudou is a new Wii U and 3DS game about being so filled with Japan that your blood clots into a gelatinous mass of hiragana and Sanrio. It's a virtual board game, a genre that usually needs to be dressed up a bit...

Watch Dogs

11-17-2014

Kind of ironic that after months of delays, Watch Underscore Dogs is finally coming to Wii U with no "Bad Blood," am I right folks?  Ubisoft's open world trench coater and the last M-rated game it will release for t...

Tengami

11-17-2014

Tengami has been out on iOS devices for quite some time but has now finally made its debut on Wii U. I think it's great that the Wii U has the perfect setup for iOS games to make a pretty seamless transition thanks to th...

Mario Kart 8 DLC Pack 1

11-14-2014

Mario Kart 8's first DLC pack has Link riding a horse-shaped bike called the Master Cycle. And, good lord, Mute City from the beloved but still dormant F-Zero series. Also, a track based on Excitebike with a killer remix. Are you even going to read this review? Don't answer that. Let me have this moment.

The Voice: I Want You

11-08-2014

Do you live for the thrill of belting out your favorite songs whenever you've got five minutes to yourself? Are you an amateur singer looking for guidance, or a professional looking for something fun to brush up your vocal te...

Pikmin 3

11-05-2014

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...


 

Mega Man Battle Network 2

11-05-2014

The first Mega Man Battle Network came to the Wii U Virtual Console a few months back, along with a bunch of other Mega Man games from Capcom.  Now, it seems my favorite in the series, Battle Network 2, is comi...


 

Moon Chronicles

11-03-2014

Renegade Kid has unveiled a new plan for Moon Chronicles, as more is on the way next month. On February 5, episodes 2, 3, and 4 will drop for $4.50 apiece. Or, if you're in a more carefree mode of operation, $9 for the lot. Since the first episode already exists, the rest is basically an add-on for the previous package. Europe is still MIA in terms of a release of any kind.


 

Bayonetta

11-03-2014

Religion is not something that is discussed much when talking about videogames, even though many games often feature religious themes and stories based on religious texts. It's difficult to avoid these things, since religion ...

[Update: Thanks for watching everybody! Expect the rerun up soon. In the meantime, here's a trailer for the last entry in the Electronic Super Joy series, Hot Sticky Mess.] We're going live the creator of Electronic Super Joy, Mr. Michael Todd! Join us!


 

Electronic Super Joy: Groove City

11-01-2014

Eletronic Super Joy and its Groove City expansion have done pretty well so far, but I can't help but shake the feeling they could go farther. "Quirky and challenging platformer fatigue" is a problem for a lot of good ga...


 

Shadow of the Eternals

11-01-2014

Silicon Knights founder Denis Dyack has returned with a new studio, Quantum Entanglement Entertainment. The company was founded with the belief television shows, films, and games are converging and soon will no longer be seen...


 

Sportsball

10-30-2014

This trailer for Sportsball -- not to be confused with Action Button Entertainment's Videoball; the narrator's delivery reminded me of Tim Rogers, a bit -- is something else. I feel like I need to watch it about four more ti...

Costume Quest 2

10-29-2014

As it turns out, the duration of that Costume Quest 2 timed-exclusive on PlayStation wasn't all that long. Like, one day. But, that's okay because it means that everyone will have it in time for Halloween. That's s...


 

Pier Solar HD

10-23-2014

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...


 

The Voice

10-16-2014

Let it be known that I play any and all karaoke games, no matter how bad they are. Hell, I even bought Disney's Sing It because I thought there might be a couple Hannah Montana songs I could rock out to. But I think Activisio...


 

Mighty No. 9

10-14-2014

The developers of Mighty No. 9 have recently stated that the game is almost done, which is good news for the gameplay and not-so-great news for the uninspired art style. But the porting process has begun, and they're rea...

Sorry (not my fault. Honest).


 

Hyper Light Drifter

10-10-2014

Hyper Light Drifter looks pretty rad, and part of that is due to the cool looking 2D style. Recently developer Alex Preston responded to a question regarding a 1080p resolution for the game, and had this to say, "Our game is ...

Skylanders: Trap Team

10-07-2014

Toys For Bob has found some rather interesting ways to evolve the Skylanders franchise. While the conceit the first time around was simply interactive toys, the developer mixed things up with giants on the second go, and...
