Mario Kart 8's 200cc class put to the test on Piranha Plant Pipeway

We're about two weeks out from Nintendo adding the speedy new 200cc class to Mario Kart 8. After watching a few of these side-by-side comparison videos between 200cc and 150cc, it already feels like I'm growing accustomed to...

Forget Metal Gear, Konami readying Adventures of Bayou Billy re-release

Elliot Quest's Wii U port is quite buggy

Elliot Quest is a retro-inspired Metroidvania title that feels right at home on the Wii U, as it takes a lot of inspiration from such NES classics as Zelda II: The Adventure of Link and Kid Icarus. I'd even venture to ...
