Can 2015 be the year of clay, please?

Ooh, a chance to talk about clay animation and armatures without straying away from videogames. Better jump on it. This video takes us behind the scenes of Armikrog, a point-and-click adventure that made it through Kickstar...

Hyrule Warriors' play-as-Ganon mode looks broken and awesome

In the next and seemingly final piece of DLC for Hyrule Warriors, we'll be able to punch bosses in the face as the biggest boss of all, Ganon, in his own separate mode. I'm eager to let my anger out on the Imprisoned, that j...

Xenoblade Chronicles X shows off dynamic weather, day-night cycle

Day and night cycles aren't new, but it's a pretty one at least. Actually, thinking on it, more RPGs (particularly Japanese RPGs) could benefit from a day and night cycle just for the perceived visual variation on the hours ...

Flex those muscles, Machamp

This is vaguely the same footage of Pokkén Tournament we've seen over the past couple weeks, but it's a direct capture of the game, so what the hell. Good recap of the current roster, though do note that the voice over and text are in Japanese. Long way to go before this'll get localized. What's going on with Pikachu (starting at 1:25)? That expression is Kirby-in-the-USA angry.

Nintendo made a clay Wii U GamePad for this delightful Kirby trailer

This Kirby and the Rainbow Curse trailer is like an abbreviated version of the Japanese trailer we saw last month. It once again touches on the game's claymazing intro, four-person co-op, and amiibo support for Kirby, Meta Knight, and King Dedede, but it's just so gosh-darned cute.

Tri-Strip is another game that has a classic Game Boy look

Have you been itching for a monochrome style game outside of Joylancer? You can have your fill later this year with Tri-Strip, from developer Form Up Studios. It's a lot like Tetris, and involves manipulating triangles to remove them from the board. I dig the style but it's a bit too bright at the moment. As expected, Off-TV play is supported. There's no set release date yet for the game.
