DTOID News: The Super Smashed of Us, Pokémonopoly & Borderlands

Hey gang! Here I am again, shouting about the dang news. Super Smash Bros. and Borderlands are making big piles of headlines, and The Last of Us is getting an HD re-release, so I guess we haven't seen the last of it just quite yet. Pokémon and Zelda are getting Monopolized, and The Evil Within is spooky.

More alpha footage of Mega Ma--I Mean Mighty No. 9: It's great

I've kept up cold indifference towards Mega Man 9 -- I mean Mighty No. 9 -- since its announcement and Kickstarter success. With the recent alpha footage coming out, though, I'm sold.
