I couldn't afford Kid Icarus: Uprising, dang it all
I'm still mentally preparing myself for a world without Club Nintendo. The long-running rewards service will no longer exist as of July 1, 2015, but there's a much more immediate date we also need to keep in mind: March 31. T...

Here's our haul from this year's expo
Best swag of E3 2014? There's the usual t-shirts, posters, stickers, and other stuff that gets handed out. Forget that. Atlus' Teddy-centric Persona bags were where it was at this year.
Those Splatoon squids were nice, too. But condoms? Oh, E3.
Let's get physical, physical
If you've been saving up your precious coins at Club Nintendo for some sweet physical rewards since the reward redemption area on the official Club Nintendo page was undergoing renovations, you're in luck. The physical goodie...
Part of this compliant breakfast
One of the difficulties with comedy is that describing or paraphrasing a joke frequently makes it cease to be funny, so it's hard to convey Jazzpunk's charm without completely squashing its humor in the process. However,...

I was befuddled when I received a mysterious postcard from Uruguay. Who do I know in Uruguay? The envelope felt thick, so I was anxious to see what was inside. The contents were increasingly peculiar: an outstretched han...
Toy maker NECA partnering with Valve
I'm not the type of guy that has action figures lying about the house; my He-Man and Thundercats figures are up in the attic safely gathering dust for their revival in a younger generations' hands. But I'm real tempted to get...
Straight from Capcom
What better way to celebrate your love of Mega Man than wearing this odd, neon green lanyard around your neck? Or something like that.
You can pre-order the lanyard here for the fairly pricey $9.95, and you'll also ...

While Bethesda wil...

Did you know that Rhythm Heaven Fever was getting a special edition? Neither did I. Then I got this box in the mail this morning. I'm pretty sure that this special edition won't be sold in stores, but if Nintendo decides to change its mind on that, they're sure to make a killing when the game hits stores on February 13th.
Check out the video and you'll understand what I mean.
[Update: Contest over! Winner is OverEZ!]

When this turned up and I opened the package, my wife said, "They sent you a lunchbox? You're an asshole." That's a fair enough assessment, I suppose.
Anyway, I got this mad tat in the mail today. It's a steel box conta...
It was Jak & Daxter's tenth anniversary on December 4, and Sony decided to commemorate it by sending me a Precursor Orb today. This is a limited edition replica of the artifact, found in the Jak & Daxter series, ...
