Get off of my cloud: Cloudbuilt coming to Steam in March

Chris Carter's Cloudbuilt preview rocketed it onto my radar. Thankfully, the gorgeous, parkour-filled action platformer won't keep us waiting long. It's coming to Steam next month, March 20, as this unnecessarily short video shows. It looks a bit like sci-fi Gravity Rush done up in color pencils. I can't wait. I also can't wait for Gravity Rush 2.

Samsung announces Galaxy 5 in ridiculously-named colors

Can I be on the committee that names the colors for cars and tech? Samsung's new Galaxy comes in "shimmery white, electric blue, and copper gold." It also has other features.  Copper gold? C'mon. Get creative. What's nex...

Chances of a Last of Us sequel: '50/50'

I love The Last of Us. I also don't think it needs a sequel. When asked about a sequel in a Reddit AUA, Last of Us Creative Director Neil Druckmann said "right now I'd say it's 50/50." I'm team 50. That is, the 50 that r...

Titan Invasion announced for PS4, PS3, Vita

No, it's not a ploy to trick people into thinking they're buying Titanfall. Titan Invasion is a collection of two indie PC games; the Space Invaders-styled Titan Attacks!, which won me over with its well-done trailer (above)...

Sorry, Miyamoto. You can't just end the Year of Luigi photo
Sorry, Miyamoto. You can't just end the Year of Luigi
by Steven Hansen

This is not a plea.

Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto took to the Miiverse to declare an end to the Year of Luigi: March 18. The Year of Luigi Miiverse sections will close on that date. Miyamoto also asked for comments on the Miiverse announcement about Luigi, the deadline to enter being either March 18, or 1,000 comments; whichever comes first.

What Miyamoto does not understand is that the Year of Luigi knows no bounds. No deadlines. It can close the Miiverse community, but it can never end the Year of Luigi. The Gregorian calender has been usurped. This is year 2 AL.

Nintendo might have loosed the Year of Luigi into the world, but they do not control it. Not even Nintendo deity Shigeru Miyamoto has that power. Our legends tell of humanity in its wild collective defying the gods to its own ends.

This is Prometheus stealing the flame. Except Nintendo gave it to us. And they are not getting it back.

Zero Escape not profitable in Japan, trilogy end on hold

999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors' success in the West was enough to birth a sequel, Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward. That sequel ends on a cliffhanger and it doesn't look like it will be resolved any time soon. Ser...
