Shovel Knight continues to plow through its stretch goals, as achievements have just been unlocked! Yacht Club Games clarifies that even the 3DS and Wii U will have their own in-game achievement system, while the Steam release will follow Valve's own rules.

So to recap, the $90,000 mark has been reached for achievements, and now the game is working its way to $100,000, which will unlock a New Game+ mode, with still over a week to go.

The Plague Knight enemy has also been revealed, which looks pretty damn awesome. There's so much character to this game so far, I can't wait to see what else Yacht Club has up its sleeve.

Very Quick Tips: Shovel Knight

Shovel Knight is an amalgamation of a lot of old school 2D platformers, most notably Zelda II: The Adventure of Link and Mega Man. As such, it involves a decent amount of tricky jumps, boss fights, and some adventure elements that are a bit more cryptic than the average game. Here are some basic tips to help you on your way to New Game+.more

Here are the differences between the three Shovel Knight platforms

Although our review is for the Wii U version of Shovel Knight, I had a chance to test out all three versions -- and since all three platforms are utterly different in nature, it can be pretty tough to decide between them. Her...more

Monster Hunter 4 NA weapon contest winner is an insect glaive

Adventure Time: The Secret of the Nameless Kingdom is a shameless Zelda-like

Adventure Time is so inherently well suited to videogames that it almost works against it. Every fan of the series already knows what they want in an Adventure Time game. Sadly, none of the game adaptations of the serie...more
