Life is Strange's Warren is taking things too far

Alright, dude. We get it. You're into the girl. All the nervous chatter and endless texts killed your cover. It's okay, though. She might be into you too. But, what she won't be into is finding you hiding behind bushes starin...

Dang, someone got this Sanic amiibo before I could

I've highlighted some custom amiibo in my time, but nothing like this. Nothing like Sanic. "I originally made this for a good friend," wrote designer Alltheapplesdoubled, "but I would love to have an army of Sanics running a...

Review: Criminal Girls: Invite Only  photo
Review: Criminal Girls: Invite Only
by Brittany Vincent

We all know the PlayStation Vita is now the de facto home for all things Japanese. Ports, remakes, re-releases, and original content all trickle down similarly to the little handheld that could, and the Vita port of 2010's PSP adventure Criminal Girls is one of the latest to join the fold. The original release picked up a subtitle on its way westward and found place in retail sales as Criminal Girls: Invite Only.

The Vita release is a strange amalgam of role-playing elements and simulated discipline that feels right at home on the handheld. These prisoners have been bad, bad girls, and it's up to you to push them toward the road to redemption.

So *that's* how Sakaguchi got stuck making Final Fantasy after Final Fantasy

"How'd they get him?" That question comes to mind when I go back and watch some of my favorite Mega64 videos. Somehow, there have been skits with big-name creators like Shigeru Miyamoto, Hideo Kojima, and Ken Kutaragi. Now here's another in that vein: "Hironobu Sakaguchi's Final Fantasy." Did he just staple his computer monitor? He just stapled his computer monitor.

Meme Run pulled from Wii U eShop by Trollface creator

In a continued lack of self-awareness, Carlos Ramirez (a.k.a. Wynne), creator of the popular meme "Trollface" has filed a DMCA takedown against Ninja Pig Studios. The filing claims unlicensed usage of the Trollface likeness in their Nintendo Wii U eShop game Meme Run infringes on his copyright of the image.

Why do some developers shy away from surrealism in gaming? photo
Why do some developers shy away from surrealism in gaming?
by Brittany Vincent

When it comes to crafting videogames out of the norm, there’s one question developers should ask themselves: What are we afraid of?

Games are the perfect medium for exploration of bizarre, unnatural worlds, and yet it seems few developers are interested in traveling to those places. What makes us afraid to innovate beyond the comfort of realism? While mainstream games rarely stray from convention, many indie developers are plumbing the darker corners of the human mind, creating strange worlds that both thrill and unsettle us.

This Breaking Bad 'inspired' weed game on iOS is just....

While scrolling about in the iOS app store I found a game called Breaking Farm -- or as it's known by its other name, "Impending Lawsuit." The story involves "Weedsenberg," who watches a "famous television series" a...

Mega64 does Dark Dreams Don't Die

The longer we go without a second season of Dark Dreams Don't Die, the more I realize how much I genuinely connected with Swery65's strange adventure game. What a tragedy it would be for this story to go unfinished. I need r...

'Togekiss watching Doduo take a crap' and other mistaken sprites

Instead of taking a proper lunch break away from my computer today, I got caught up in this funny, nostalgic NeoGAF thread about "sprites that look like things they're not supposed to." Older games allowed and even encouraged...

Hahah what: Don't Be Patchman is a 'sneak-and-grow' game

As I watched the first video of Don't Be Patchman (below), I thought I had an okay feel for what it is. Plant apples, get an apple tree, shake it for more apples. Got it. I'm no Animal Crossing slouch. Next video, ...

You can now eat Xbox One burgers in Hong Kong

Everyone has their morning rituals. Some people need their coffee. Others jog. I peruse Japanese website Gigazine hoping to see pictures of bizarre and wonderful foods. It's rarely videogame related, so I haven't shared this ...

Nerdist's spoof Star Fox trailer reminds me of the old Nintendo Power comic

Star Fox is possibly the most under-appreciated Nintendo series. It's had games cancelled, been snubbed entirely for a whole console generation, and hasn't received an original entry since 2006 (although an untitled Sta...

What would it be like if Nintendo ran a theme park?

Nintendo is a company whose name is synonymous with videogames (just point at any console and ask my granny what it's called). It's produced some of the most beloved and iconic characters of the last century, and is still goi...
