It's time to pray for Chibi-Robo

[This piece was originally published in 2015. In light of recent rumors about the next Nintendo Direct and an ensuing eyebrow-raising tweet from Nintendo of America today, it just felt right to revive it. -Jordan] Chibi-Robo is a refugee fr...


Axiom Verge Multiverse Edition is my GOTY of 2017

There were a lot of games I loved this year -- Battle Chef Brigade, Cuphead, Ghosts 'N Homunculi, GoNNER, Million Onion Hotel, Puyo Puyo Tetris, River City Ransom: Underground, Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment, Splatoon 2, The En...


Why did The End is Nigh on Switch keep all the f-bombs?

The "Hang in there" kitten became a cultural icon for a reason. Sure, many say they only liked the poster ironically, but whether we want to admit it or not, the image of an innocent, desperate little animal hanging onto life by one paw is...


Owlboy artist makes playable mock-up for new Mega Man game

[Update: Simon wants you to know that he is not making a Mega Man game right now. Sorry if this post led to any confusion! I still hope he makes one though, even if it's just a couple of levels...] It's Mega Man's 30th birthday and Capcom ...

Sweet Home is the weird, ugly step-father of the Resident Evil series. Never to be sold outside of Japan, the game's mix of Dragon Quest-influenced mechanics and brutal, feel bad aesthetics weren't likely to find much of an audience on the...


Okinawa Rush could get a taste of The Baz if we're lucky

I've seen a lot of great rushes come and go over the years. Sonic Rush, Sugar Rush, San Francisco Rush: 2049, Rush, and of course, August Rush are just few off the top of my head. With the rush market already over saturated to th...


This Tetris comic should be taught in schools

There's been talk of a Tetris film for years, but from the looks of it, the critical failure of movies like Pixels and Battleship may have slowed Hollywood's enthusiasm for adapting toys and games that have no established narratives of thei...


Free Slime-San DLC coming to Switch, includes FPS mode

Slime-San gets compared to Super Meat Boy a lot, but that's a little like comparing Earthbound to Undertale. They're in the same genre, and the feel is similar, but beyond that, they're pretty darn different. Slime-San's central gameplay h...


Mayo wins first U.S. post-release Splatfest in surprise upset

[Art by 3DROD] [Update: Mayo won Europe and Japan as well. The whole world has officially been covered in the white stuff.] First there was Brexit. Then there was Trump. Now there is... Mayo. Despite being saddled to the less popular of Sp...
