Animal Crossing gets its PONPONPON on


Stitches just blew her mind...
Jun 24
// Jonathan Holmes
Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer is almost here, but I'm not seeing much excitement for it. Maybe that's because it's a full priced game that looks to offer just a fraction of the features found in the previously re...

The worst part of the '90s are alive in this Splatoon commercial


Kidz Bop is better
May 13
// Jed Whitaker
The '90s had some terrible commercials, like for real. They often times had really cheesy or bad jingles, just like this new commercial for Splatoon. The only thing this is missing is a geeky kid with glasses covering a bull...

Rockstar made a TV ad just for GTA Online's Heists


Shot entirely on PC
Apr 03
// Brett Makedonski
Both the PC version of Grand Theft Auto V and GTA Online's Heists have been a contentious issue for fans of the franchise. Frankly, most people adopted an "I'll believe it when I see it" mentality, as no one was ever su...

Majora's Mask gets a cute lil '90s-feeling, live-action commercial


Majora's got a brand new bag
Jan 29
// Steven Hansen
In a fitting tribute to the days of polygonal graphics that didn't play well on air, Majora's Mask 3DS has a nice little commercial you wouldn't be surprised to see stationed between episodes of Rocko's Modern Life...

These Super Smash Bros. commercials are silly


Par for the course
Sep 22
// Jordan Devore
I mean, yeah, what else would you expect? It's Super Smash Bros. Nintendo's television spots for the 3DS game feature the tagline "Settle it in Smash," which is a good fit for the series, admittedly, but I'm far more interested in that Doc Louis cameo.

Japanese Super Smash Bros. 3DS commercial is cute & pastel


Protect your neck
Sep 03
// Steven Hansen
The N64 Super Smash Bros. commercial will probably stick with me more than any other TV commercial for a videogame, but this 3DS-focused Smash Bros. commercial from Japan is nice in its own right.

Ever since I originally posted about those Mario Kart 8 toys at McDonald's, I've been meaning to get out to one and pick up one of them, but I have yet to do so. In the event you've been trying to figure out whether or not y...

These three Mario Kart 8 commercials are pretty awesome


Lots better than Tomodachi Life's campaign
May 14
// Brittany Vincent
Okay, Nintendo. This is more like it. I'm not sure what you were trying with the little girls and Tomodachi Life, but these Mario Kart 8 commercials are decidedly more entertaining and engaging for television, especially giv...

Apparently, Tomodachi Life is for little girls


Also, this TV commercial is awful
May 13
// Brittany Vincent
Still not sure if you're going to pick up Tomodachi Life? That Nintendo Direct video really sold it to me, so I recommend you watch that if you need further convincing. Or do you prefer cringeworthy trailers for tweens? If t...

Not that I inherently dislike live-action trailers -- Sony's have always been especially good, from the weird to the current Hollywood-level production trend -- but are we at a point with graphics that live-action commercial...

Life would be great if we all had pet Titanfall mechs


No bots on the grass
Mar 03
// Steven Hansen
Property damages claims galore. They'd be headache, but they'd get you money. Muggings would be down (and then way up when muggers got mechs). You'd have someone to let your dog out to pee while you're work. Plus you'd get to be an offbeat, meticulously unkempt bearded guy who's nicely dressed. Isn't that what everyone wants?

Senran Kagura Burst commercial likens it to pornography


It's a little bit [videogame] and a little bit [boobs]
Feb 28
// Steven Hansen
If you still live at home with an edgy "No stupid people beyond this point" sign on your door and your mom still cleans your bedroom for you because you are a child, she might find your porn game, this unfunny commercial suggests, with bundled up tissues and Vaseline.  Yes, you'll be Senran Kagura BUSTED.

Ryu destroys some poor guy's car in this Turkish ad


Perfect
Feb 21
// Brett Makedonski
"Insurance? Insurance is for people that plan to lose," is essentially what this gentleman boldly and unfortunately tells a reporter, seconds before Ryu shows up and goes all bonus stage on his car. Should've went with Anadolu Sigorta, dude. Or at least the gecko. Watch Ryu destroy a car in Turkish insurance commercial [Polygon]

How are yous guys enjoying your "next gen mulitplayer," eh? Buzzwords aside, it's nice to see Sony talking multiplayer with this PlayStation Plus TV spot. Of course, it would be nicer if it was expressly couch co-op, which i...

Japan's PS4 launch is just around the corner, so they're asking that we all get our bodies on the floor for the impending party. In this PlayStation Japan commercial you'll see lots of people swinging DualShock 4 controllers...

Xbox One commercial says it best, toots own horn

Jan 13

Lots of people have had nice things to say about the Xbox One. Microsoft would like to remind you of a few, because that's what advertisements do. It's mostly just the regular "this is the console that you need in your livin...

This Xbox One ad is too immersive


'If it was anymore real, it'd be real'
Jan 13
// Brett Makedonski
Come on, Microsoft. Nothing about this new commercial for Xbox One looks anything less than miserable. I'm not going to play Ryse if it makes me feel like I got cut by a sword. The infliction of pain isn't something I want to experience when I'm playing a game. Although, depending on whom you ask, getting cut might be preferable to playing Ryse. Hashtag sick burn.

First PlayStation Vita TV ad tugs at familial strings


D'awww
Dec 03
// Steven Hansen
PS Vita TV TV commercial. Hah. This ad isn't ground breaking, but it's really cute. I've always liked these sorts of technological retrospectives. Add in a cute family, swinging tunes, and a truckload of chihuahuas and I'm bound to crack a smile. Also, is that a throwback Rams jersey? Now we just need the PS Vita TV to be announced for the US. Such a neat little thing.

Gran Turismo 6: Best racing game commercial ever

I'd like to be in a commercial like this. When I play a racing game I AM this guy.  Gran Turismo 6 is going to be so good.

I've always been a fan of Nintendo's advertising, from Pokemon's link trading commercials to Wayne Brady rapping about Wii Party U -- it's always been spot on. Don't question my unironic love for Wayne Brady. I suppose it co...

This commercial for the 2DS gets straight to the point -- Nintendo has some solid titles for its handheld systems. Dropping heavy-hitting names like Pokemon X/Y, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, and Mario and Luigi: Dream Team, th...

PlayStation 4 commercial shows you the perfect day

This live-action PlayStation 4 commercial tries to describe the perfect day, but none of it seems too appealing outside the realm of videogames. I don't want to take an ax to the chest, flip a car, or get blown apart by a fu...

Crazy Japanese Vita commercial shows upgraded things

The new PlayStation Vita is ready to drop in Japan on October 10. This television commercial shows how other things in life can also be upgraded: bento, robots, fake nails, and even purikura. And then there's the PS Vita. We...
