Nintendo's E3 2014 streams are now up on YouTube

Nintendo's decision to let its Treehouse staff stream games throughout E3 2014 was smart. It gave those of us at home extended looks at the latest 3DS and Wii U titles, let us hear from developers themselves, and overall hel...

Watch Link kill some stuff in this Hyrule Warriors character trailer

It looks like Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark has a horde mode

Activision put out a trailer showing off Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark's Escalation mode, which it's presumably titled because things escalate as it goes on. Or something like that. Look, you get to play as a Transformer, okay? Maybe that'll shut your dumb friend up that asks "Think that's Optimus Prime?" about every semi you pass on the interstate.

Hyrule Warriors may be reskinned Dynasty Warriors, but it's pretty

It is exactly Dynasty Warriors, but pretty enough that I almost want to play it regardless. And I'm not even a huge Zelda fan. Also, this is going to make so much money.

Video: Yoshi's Woolly World has weaponized cannibalism

What's the verdict on Yoshi's Woolly World? Unsurprisingly, Max says it looks and feels good. He's a huge fan of the original Yoshi's Island on Super Nintendo and after the recent Yoshi's New Island, this game and its adorable hand-crafted aesthetic can't come soon enough. Shame it's not out until 2015, a running theme for much of this year's E3 lineup. No Baby Mario, at least.

Tourney crowd goes wild as Mega Man's full Final Smash animation is revealed

Last night's Super Smash Bros. Invitational was full of great moments, but one of the absolute highlights was the reveal of Mega Man's Final Smash. It was the first one of the night, and the Blue Bomber is a perfect character to really show it off to a roaring crowd. I never would have believed that Nintendo would make people more excited for Mega Man than Capcom as a kid.

You ever see something that's so simple, yet so perfect? Like a Gordon Ramsey dish that uses just five ingredients, and only takes 30 minutes to make.
