What major MOBA are you playing right now?

"MOBA" is often a bad word/phrase in video game circles. As a fan of them since 2005 I kind of just shrug it off though -- this genre is here, and it's popular, guys. Embrace it or don't play it!  My MOBA history has bee...

You too can create this unholy monstrosity with amiibo in Yoshi's Woolly World

My God, Nintendo, what have you done. According to Nintendo of Europe, "over 40 amiibo" can be used in Yoshi's Woolly World. You'll be able to create gross voodoo dolls dedicated to smiting your eternal enemies with a slow and painful death cute woolly patterns for characters in the game. Yeah, this is amiibo support I can get behind. Nintendo of Europe [Twitter]

Did you really think Batman: Arkham Knight wouldn't have pre-order costumes?

Because WB has to monetize every single facet of their games (hello pay-for-fatalities on top of a Season Pass and lots of paid costume DLC), Batman: Arkham Knight will also feature more pre-order bonuses beyond its $40 ...

Go rock this unofficial Splatoon outfit in Animal Crossing

Do you still boot up Animal Crossing: New Leaf every once in a while? I'm a terrible neighbor -- I've probably caused a lot of woodland creatures to skip town because I never leave my house. For those of you who are stil...

That newish Gauntlet reboot is getting more updates at some point

Remember that new Gauntlet reboot that launched late last year? It was actually pretty decent, though it's a shame that it's only on PCs currently and not consoles, where it would make a perfect couch co-op game for thos...

Remember those cute Kidrobot Mega Man figures? They're coming this summer

Some time ago, Kidrobot announced a line of 3-inch Mega Man toys. They were to be sold in blind boxes for $11.99 each, with a 5-pack for $59.99. Then...we didn't really hear anything for over a year. Now, thanks to Vinyl Puls...

'What Remains of Edith Finch?' has the potential to be quite the horror romp

Sony has revealed a new trailer for What Remains of Edith Finch? and I'm digging the atmosphere. Apparently the narrative will focus on a series of short stories, all involving the death of different members of the Finch fam...

Yep, Marvelous was teasing social-oriented Net High with that time bomb site

Yep, that time bomb related tease last week from Marvelous was indeed related to Net High, an upcoming Vita game. It's set in the year "20XX" and involves a world where the "Neo Communications Act" has been implemented. Smar...

Bloodborne patch 1.04 arrives with some tweaks that make the game easier

Ah, Bloodborne. While I'm not quite sure how it ranks overall in terms of the Souls games (I need a few more years to ponder that), there's no doubt in my mind that I'll be returning to it periodically. A steady str...

Battlefield 4 (not Hardline) is getting an update tomorrow

Despite the fact that Battlefield 4 launched back in 2013, it's still being updated. Tomorrow, players will get the spring update on all platforms, which includes the Gun Master mode. After an hour of downtime in the mor...

Pokemon Shuffle reaches 4m downloads, celebrate with Shaymin

I've moved on from Pokemon Shuffle (Pokemon Rumble World is my jam now on 3DS), but it still continues to be supported by Nintendo in the form of the occasional special event. To celebrate four million downloads, they've...

Tanya will make it to Mortal Kombat X in 'early June'

Way before the game released (because that's how WB rolls), we knew the contents of the $30 Mortal Kombat X Kombat Pack. Jason Vorhees has already been released, but Tanya, who made an appearance in the game's story mode...

Project CARS boss: 'We're running at about 23FPS on Wii U'

I enjoyed what I've played of Project CARS. It's geared towards simulation enthusiasts, but it's clear that the development team put a lot of heart into it. It's currently out for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One, but it's...

Back in 2013, Archie Comics released a rather groundbreaking crossover -- "Sonic & Mega Man: Worlds Collide." It was a joint effort between Capcom and Sega properties, and brought the two iconic heroes together to battle ...

If you buy Don't Starve on Wii U soon, you'll get a free gift copy

We already knew that Don't Starve was heading to the Wii U on May 28 (June 4 in Europe), but now we can confirm that developer Klei Entertainment has sweetened the deal a bit. If you buy the game for $14.99 before J...

Review: Destiny: House of Wolves

I am convinced that somewhere, all of the new assets for the Destiny: House of Wolves expansion were lost, forcing Bungie to restart the entire process all over again. Why else would almost the entire $20 premium DLC be a reskin?

Review: Nom Nom Galaxy

You really have to give it to Q-Games. With the notable exception of PixelJunk Shooter 2, it has tried something different with pretty much all of its releases, from slot car races, to tower defense, to music visualizers. Not every game is a smash hit, but they all have something unique to offer, including the newly minted Nom Nom Galaxy.

Zen Studios' Portal pinball table is pretty faithful, and fun

I'm not as crazy about pinball as say, Chad Concelmo, but with the right theme, I'm on board. The South Park Pinball pack hit the spot with numerous references to the show, and more recently, the Portal board h...

Nobuo Uematsu unveils his beautiful new Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward theme

One of the best parts of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is the music. Most people don't consider it a "real" Final Fantasy because of the MMO tag, but let me tell you -- it's probably my favorite main entry sinc...

Check out the femme fatales of Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition

Trish, playable in the new Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition release next month, is shaping up to be one of the coolest DMC characters to date. Thankfully, Lady doesn't seem like a slouch either, as her gun-based gameplay looks pretty amazing. I was always a fan of the Kalina Ann weapon. Despite the fact that it's digital-only in the west, I'm still excited to give this a test run.
