Dark Souls III player escorts a crab so we don't have to

There are murmurs about a lil friendly crab in Dark Soul III potentially leading to some sort of secret. The idea is that if you manage to bring it to the right area, wherever the hell that might be, something cool will happen sort of like...

'Uppers' is shaping up to be a pretty neat looking brawler

Uppers, an action game from the makers of the Senran Kagura series, is on my radar. It's set to debut this year in Japan on the Vita, and involves a collective of outlaws on a giant island, beating the snot out of each other. You can get a ...

Kojima playing a bunch of arcade games is a real daymaker

Adding Shrek to Dark Souls III is much more fun than you'd think

People really love Dark Souls III. People ironically seem to love Shrek, the jolly green ogre with a penchant for defending swamps. There just so happens to be a swamp in From Software's latest, so I suppose it was only a matter of time bef...

Even Babymetal is teaming up with Mario Maker

The metal idol group Babymetal is coming to Super Mario Maker as a character costume, which is something I should probably find strange, but don't -- not after the pigeon, Barbara the Bat, and Chitoge Kirisaki. Nintendo has gone to unexpec...

If you miss Kirby's Dream Course, take a look at Bulby

Kirby's Dream Course holds a special place in gaming history. Despite releasing more than 20 years ago and featuring a unique gameplay hook, it didn't see many copycats. Sure, there have been other golf games, but nothing has been quite lik...

Cold Stone Creamery (Wii) voice acting will haunt me forever

You hear the first "good jooobbb" at :30 and what was once a weird, branded* cash-in with a Candy Crush color scheme and, well, a Candy Crush everything -- when did this come out? 2009! -- becomes a little less comfortable. *Because of reg...

Square's Super Mario RPG pitch: Mario with a sword on horseback

I regretfully have not played Super Mario RPG, but I have a feeling it wouldn't be so revered as a classic had Nintendo followed Square's initial pitch, which included Mario riding a horse, wearing a cape, and holding a sword. It'd just be...

One last Uncharted 4 trailer for the road

I'm not sure headline limitations and economy allow for it, but "One last Uncharted 4 trailer for the last of us" was my initial joke, but then I felt like it'd take explanation and at that point you're pushing the boundaries of what is a ...

When the frame rate is so bad, it makes you ill

I hadn't really heard of Lichdom: Battlemage until our recent post about its new PlayStation 4 and Xbox One ports -- they're $49.99 a piece, or bizarrely enough you could just get the PC version for $1.99 in a bundle -- and now here it is ...

Is that a Phurba dagger in his pocket or is Nathan Drake just happy to be 'powered' by GameStop?

Along with four separate editions of the game (get it, Uncharted FOUR?), Naughty Dog's alleged last entry in the series (or in Drake's story, at least) also has pre-order boners bonuses, including retail-specific ones. Quote Chris, "DLC is...
