Hyrule Warriors is Dynasty Warriors with Link in it

Nintendo has lost its mind. (In a good way. I think.) During this morning's Nintendo Direct presentation, company president Satoru Iwata revealed a collaboration with Tecmo Koei tentatively called Hyrule Warriors. The working title looks to combine Dynasty Warriors' hack and slash formula with The Legend of Zelda's universe. Weird! It's coming to Wii U sometime in 2014.

Allez cuisine! Double Dragon hits Wii U, 3DS eShop

The original Double Dragon, the game that started it all, is now available on the Wii U and 3DS eShop. I don't know if it still holds up. I can tell you the movie starring Iron Chef America's Chairman does not. I can bet the cartoon doesn't, either. But, in the words of my uncle: that music is still balling. I've looped the trailer a few times already just listening to it.

This Assassin's Creed IV glitch is totally next-gen

Before you watch this video, know that you're more or less obligated to enjoy it. A lot of good men died for this glitch. If you can't squeeze a paltry morsel of pleasure out of it, then they died in vain, and you're a monster. A monster that deserves to be banished to the depths of wherever the hell the Jackdaw just came from.
