In the middle of last year Nintendo announced it would try out the whole free-to-play scheme with Steel Diver, to the collective sighs of relief from various Nintendo series fans. Now we have details on just how that pricing ... read feature

Leave it to Nintendo to make "free to play" weird. This time, thankfully, it's my kind of weird. Rusty's Real Deal Baseball is not a baseball game. Rather, it's a compilation of baseball-themed minigames. There's a hitting mi... read feature

Aban Hawkins & the 1000 Spikes was a great concept. It launched way back in 2011 on the Xbox Live Indie store for a whole dollar, and remains one of the best games on the marketplace to this day. But the folks over at Nic... read feature

Hope you don't embarrass easily

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call is more of the same, but I doubt any Theatrhythm fan will be complaining about that. More music from more Final Fantasy games and more tapping action. More just-misses. More cramped hands. I can't wait. read feature

Sega is showing off its new puzzle game Puyopuyo Tetris here at their already super busy TGS 2013 booth. As a fan of both games, I gave this cross-up a spin on the 3DS. Puyopuyo Tetris is also coming to the Vita and PS3 as we... read feature

Tucked away in a corner below The Wind Waker HD and behind Pokemon X/Y at PAX is a small kiosk featuring Retro City Rampage and Shantae and the Pirate's Curse, both on the 3DS. Stop by if you have the chance. The games are bo... read feature

Pokemon X and Pokemon Y are currently playable in Japan at the Pokemon Game Show. We got a look at the same hands-on demo, minus the 10 minute time limit and the assuredly hours-long line. The demo opens with you as a rand... read feature

Back in February, PlayStation 3 and Vita owners finally got their taste of the motorcycle madness found in the Trials HD series that Xbox owners have been enjoying for years. Sadly, Urban Trial Freestyle just didn't seem to h... read feature

I'm a big fan of the Ace Attorney series but fell off the wagon somewhere between the Apollo Justice and Miles Edgeworth games, so it's exciting to see that Phoenix is making a comeback in Dual Destinies. The game takes place... read feature

Prior to the E3 festivities, Disney demonstrated the upcoming cash grab Disney Infinity to a room teeming with journalists. The focus of the event was on two of the in-game worlds plus the oft-touted Toy Box mode. The first w... read feature

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is a ton of fun


HULK LEGO SMASH!
Jun 06
I am so jealous of kids growing up this day and age. They have the coolest videogame consoles, the Internet, iPads, and now LEGO Marvel Super Heroes. Combining Marvel, one of the hottest movie proprieties right now (and not t... read
In a room full of peers I embarrassed myself. A few weeks back, I found myself in a meeting room along with folks that head up a lot of the other gaming websites and magazines in America. After a brief presentation,... read feature

If Nintendo has made one thing clear in the last few days, it's that they're dead serious about making eShop a real contender as the consumers preferred purchase outlet. To help them along the way, Nintendo is enlisting the h... read feature

By the time Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D is released, it will have been two and half years from the original's debut on the Wii. So what has changed in that time? Well, not a whole lot, and that's not a bad thing. Donkey Ko... read feature

I'm not the biggest RPG guy on staff, but I've enjoyed every single Mario & Luigi game to date. They're just so charming, and it's looking like Dream Team is no different, based on my recent hands-on time. The premise is ... read feature

Now Nintendo just needs to tell us more!
Apr 18
Nintendo announced a sequel of sorts set within the same world as The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, and I got to play it yesterday. Nintendo wouldn't tell us ANYTHING about the game, though. Nothing about how it fits i... read

Saying that Capcom’s Monster Hunter series has a passionate and loyal following would be a massive understatement. For nearly 10 years, Monster Hunter has captivated gamers and inspired many imitators. After months of k... read feature

Luigi's Mansion launched with the GameCube to little fanfare, oft forgotten by all but its most ardent fans. When news of a 3DS Luigi’s Mansion dropped out of the blue, it reinvigorated this base, but news since has be... read feature

Apparently, nearly a decade ago, Namco and Capcom teamed up for the crossover, turn-based SRPG Namco x Capcom. Don’t ask me how they decided who would get first billing. A coin flip? A Japanese game show? Similarly, don... read feature
