Tappingo 2 will hit the 3DS eShop on August 28

I thought Tappingo was a decent (and very well priced) distraction on the 3DS eShop, but there were some problems with it that definitely needed to be addressed. Developer Goodbye Galaxy Games has taken these criticisms to h...

iPhone hit Pivvot is coming to Steam next week

Mobile-to-PC ports don't have the best of track records but I've got some high hopes for the home computer version of Pivvot, a great mobile game which was one of my favorites from 2013. It has such a simple concept: to keep...

Yes! Roundabout coming to PC September 18, PS4/Xbox next year

Woman stole 1,000 from her mother to buy junk in Candy Crush Saga

Review: Magical Beat photo
Review: Magical Beat
by Chris Carter

No matter what the climate is in the industry, there seems to be an overwhelming demand for battle puzzle games. That's ok with me though, because ever since playing Yoshi, Dr. Mario, and Wario's Woods for the NES, I've been enjoying the fierce competitive element that these games can bring, and playing with a formidable rival can be quite the rush.

The newest kid on the block is Magical Beat -- a rhythm puzzle game for the Vita by Arc System Works. Naturally, they couldn't resist putting in Guilty Gear and BlazBlue tunes, which are easily the best part.

Review: Pushmo World photo
Review: Pushmo World
by Chris Carter

People say Nintendo never does anything original outside of Mario and Zelda -- but as we all know, that's absolutely not true. Not only has the company taken chances on wacky IPs all throughout its storied history, but the advent of digital downloads has further satiated its desire to try out new characters and games.

Take the 3DS for example, which rolled out new properties like Dillon's Rolling Western, Sakura Samurai, and my personal favorite of the bunch -- Pushmo. It's hard to believe that in just three short years there have been three Pushmo games, but all of them are good, even the newest iteration that's hitting the Wii U for the first time.
