Ubisoft files new Beyond Good & Evil trademarks

Nintendo is attempting to trademark the Mario coin sound

It's funny when you hear a clear-cut video game noise out in public. Like when the gas station register belts out a sound effect from Sonic the Hedgehog, or when the Mario coin noise plays. Well, Nintendo is looking to take the latter ...

The USPTO updates refusal of Sony's 'Let's Play' trademark application

Bandai Namco is cooking up Tap My Katamari

Katamari Damacy has such a strong hook and delightfully offbeat vibe, it's hard to imagine I'll ever grow tired of the series. It's been a few years, now. We're due for another installment. If a recent trademark and domain are anything to g...

Capcom trademarks Resident Evil: Umbrella Corps

Hold on a sec: Wouldn't a Resident Evil game called Umbrella Corpse be the most exciting thing to happen to the series since Resident Evil 4? You can have that one for free, Capcom. (Kidding, pay me.) Capcom has trademarked "Resident Evil: ...

A game about gnomes and Armageddon, and I really hope it's 1998's Armageddon

Today's example of vague-yet-still-obvious news, Sony's filed a trademark for a game titled Gnomageddon. We know nothing else about it, but the name kind of says it all, right? There will be gnomes, and there will be some sort of Armageddon...

A trademark has been filed for Soldiers' Soul
