Adorable fan-made mock-up of Kid Icarus Advance

We've seen a lot of great indie developers propose fun reinventions of classic Nintendo franchises lately. The sports-action Daisy title imagined Konjak looks amazing, as does the concept for a new Wario Land game by Snakepi...

It's the debut of Amber's Unboxing Series!

[Accompanying music by Alphadeus] When I first heard about Loot Crate, I didn't think it would take off. A company sends you random stuff once a month? For someone like me, that's a nightmare. The inventory box of my life is...

Make your very own clay Kirby

This is the good stuff right here. HAL Laboratory has a delightful little website with making-of photos for Kirby and the Rainbow Curse and a video showing how to create your own clay Kirby. Between this, The Neverhood, Skullmonkeys, and The Swapper, I find myself wishing that more developers would pick up a clay set. These handcrafted games will forever feel special. [Via NeoGAF]

Theatrhythm: Curtain Call gets equipped with World Ends With You and Chrono Trigger DLC

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call was a joy to play. It was absolutely packed with content, so the fact that DLC has been steadily dropping since launch hasn't bothered me -- all in all, it's one of the biggest rhythm ...

The best part about this Majora's Mask 3D gyroscope demo is that you can turn the feature off
by Chris Carter

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D is out on February 13, 2015. I've completed it, and our review will come in February. I know, I know, but at least you'll get a pre-launch review, right?!

This new video from Nintendo shows off the gyroscope aiming feature that was in Ocarina of Time 3D, compliments of Eiji Aonuma. The best part? You can turn off gyroscope controls entirely just like Ocarina, and the left analog stick is pretty damn effective.

During the DS and Wii era, Nintendo would have stubbornly forced us to use this "revolutionary" type of play control. Now with systems like the Wii U and the 3DS, we have actual options just in case we don't prefer them.

Give some robots a rhythm beatdown in Omega: the First Movement

Strafe's bleeding edge graphics and gameplay will literally blow your mind

Well, if you're going to cut a trailer for "the goriest shooter of 1996," this is how you do it. Enjoying the ironic aggressive marketing of the campaign, complete with stylized title (STRAFE®) popping up everywhere.

Starr Mazer is a mix of point-and-click adventure game and side-scrolling space shooter, "featuring dynamic story module system for massive replayability, a deep voice-acted story, and beautiful pixel art." It took a few reads to understand this is a "deep, voice-acted story" and not a story voiced by Keith David. 

It looks pretty sweet, though I'm more into the point-and-click half. The PC/Mac/Linux game is going up on Kickstarter in a couple of days. Ahead of that, the team has announced that Mega Man and Mighty No. 9 composer Manami Matsumae would be joining the music team, which includes a number of guest artists, including Gunpoint's Ryan Ike.
