NieR: Automata's characters sure look wild

NieR: Automata doesn't even have a release date, but Platinum Games and Square are doing a good job of getting me excited for it regardless. In addition to some new screens, there's a new character-centric video up from a recent livestream ...

You can watch that weird Star Fox anime thing now

Nintendo's Treehouse aired that Star Fox anime they announced earlier this week. Predictably, it's pretty anime-ish, what with the dramatic dialog and Macross-missile barrages. You can catch it on YouTube if you're interested. Super slick ...

Leonardo can slow time in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan
