Lord of Magna

Get a load of Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven's cast


Out next month on 3DS
May 18
Next month, Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven will arrive on the 3DS, both digitally and physically. It's a strategy RPG that features a pretty interesting cast, which you can check out in the official video above. Looking at the actual gameplay involved, it looks pretty charming -- everything is colorful and pops out of the screen. Expect my review sometime in June.

Nintendo TV

That time Sharp built an NES into a television


Cool controllers
May 15
A television set with a built-in Nintendo Entertainment System sounds like the sort of extravagant purchase I'd make if, as a youngster, I was nearly run over by a bad man and he handed me a blank check that I could then pro...

Atlus shows off Persona 4: Dancing All Night swimsuit gameplay


Still disappointed, Atlus
May 15
I already wrote about why I was disappointed in Atlus over this swimsuit DLC for Persona 4: Dancing All Night, but I know not everyone shares my overbearing principles* and would like to see the swimsuit trailer, so I will do my civic duty and post it here, on-line. *my overbearing principles involve seeing Kanji in a speedo. How the hell does he not get a swimsuit costume?
Jack

Jack the robot is back in Tekken 7 as Jack-7


Too seven for me
May 15
While Yoshimitsu has undergone some sort of Cthulhuian ritual to turn into a squid, Jack will be returning as the same old robot you're familiar with. On May 19 the arcade edition of Tekken 7 will be getting Jack-7. His...

Gee, I really wonder what it could be
May 15
I’m going to play a little game with you called "guess the DLC". Dying Light is an open-world, cooperative zombie game with a heavy emphasis on parkour and violently slaughtering zombies in as many different ways as yo...

Sonic short film

Sonic lets Robotnik die in this sad short film


I'll never call him Eggman
May 14
I've seen a lot of disturbing Sonic the Hedgehog content online, but this one is probably my favorite. A boy dressed as Sonic wanders around his town looking for adventure until he spots a very Dr. Robotnik-looking fellow wi...
Silent Hills fan trailer

Torture yourself with this fan-made trailer for Silent Hills


Wear your headphones
May 14
I still can't get over the cancellation of Silent Hills, and this fan-made trailer from GLS Machinima isn't helping. It's a short clip and was made a few months ago, but its more than Konami seems interested in giving us and...
Crysis: Analogue Edition

Haha sure: Crysis board game on Kickstarter


Tactical battles and chest-high walls
May 14
Crysis Analogue Edition - The Board Game. Huh. Okay. I have been pleasantly surprised in the past with video game shooters turned into tactical board games, but I'm still a bit skeptical about this one. I mean, Crysis's bigg...
Madden 16 trailer

That Odell Beckham catch looks way less impressive in Madden 16


Another year another Madden
May 14
In case you were concerned, yes, there will be a Madden this year. Madden 16, so expect it to feature a lot of One Direction and complain about how it wanted the 7 series BMW, not that poverty-lined 4 series. It seems the on...

Cute little microcosm
May 14
After watching this debut trailer for Evoland 2: A Slight Case of Spacetime Continuum Disorder, I regret missing the first game. The basic concept of an adventure that evolves from 2D to 3D and spans multiple genres is the s...

Good thing we're here to report

Walk the dinosaur

Mega Man X

If I had a million dollars, I'd do Mega Man X and X2 at the same time


Double the pleasure!
May 13
Some people know how to multitask. I mean, really multitask. I am not one of them. I get flustered if I have to cook pasta during my washer's rinse cycle because who knows if the damn thing won't just explode and flood the e...

Yoshimitsu

Watch 12 minutes of Yoshimitsu battling it out in Tekken 7


Still my favorite
May 13
Yoshimitsu has undergone a lot of changes over the years. From a cyborg to a more traditional ronin outfit, to a bug...thing, and now, Cthulu's newphew. I dig them all, and across multiple franchises like Soul Calibur, he ha...

The first three Pushmo games were pretty fantastic, and as of this week, Japan has another entry in the series. It's called Pushmo: Hippa Land, and it's a free-to-play release for the 3DS. No, it's not completely free -...
Splatoon commercial

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


Kidz Bop is better
May 13
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...

Social media animated!

Hey, did you see those two little old ladies talking about Majora's Mask while innocuously almost eating eyeball cookies? If not, you're missing out.  After seeing that short, I knew that the team at Farleywink Animatio...
