Squids Odyssey review photo

Review: Squids Odyssey

Splatoon might be getting a lot of hype for Wii U squid battling, but it is not the first game featuring a squid squad to grace the console. Earlier this year, Squids made its jump from iOS to the Wii U with Squids Odyssey, and it even blaz...

Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley's '3D' aspects explained

After that strange Harvest Moon/Story of Seasons debacle that Kyle so kindly set straight for us, it's good to see more details emerging regarding the actual branded Harvest Moon release, The Lost Valley. The game's E3 information sheds som...

Natsume's E3 2014 lineup sure is a lineup

Natsume has announced its complete E3 roster for next week, and while it's got a few high points, it's not impressing me too much. It's a strange mishmash of handheld games and iOS releases with a stray PSP game and Wii U property for good ...

 
 
 
PS VITA PETS IS SO FETCH photo

PlayStation Vita Pets is pure nightmare fuel, buy it now

What if Flappy Bird and Candy Crush rocked vintage covers?

Ever wonder what Flappy Bird or Angry Birds would have looked like in a different, much simpler time? A time like the early '80s and '90s? Dorkly has made it possible with these absolutely ridiculous vintage covers. You've got Candy Crush S...

 
 
Tasty Blue photo

Hahah: Tasty Blue is the Katamari of the seas

Okay, I know that this basic premise is not new. The player is a small fish, and it eats smaller fish to grow bigger, at which point it can eat more fish, and grow bigger still. The circle of life continues, and we mostly ignore it. Most g...

Americlap: Freedom is the only way, yeah

America, f*@k yeah! Americlap is a game where you clap your little heart out to keep the American flag flying proudly. If you stop clapping, you'll probably send a thousand puppies and kittens to their death, you hate freedom, and stand fo...

Farm your little heart out with Farming Simulator 14

Tony Hawk is still relevant in Tony Hawk's Shred Session

Candy Crush has a bizarro nationwide ad campaign in Japan

Candy Crush Saga is coming to Japan in a big way, as developer King has prepared a slew of rather bizarre commercials for its freakishly addictive mobile puzzler. With King having opened an office in Japan, it's no wonder a nationwide ad c...

 
 
BaZynga! photo

Zynga has lost half of its active users in the last year

The bad news is that I'm sure they all moved on to play god damn Candy Crush. For now. Until some other bright casino game or reality show about a bad 90's rapper living in an Amish community wrangles their attention so they can mentally es...

Candy crushed: King.com IPO posts disappointing numbers

Halfbrick reveals new puzzle game Bears vs. Art

I hope you have some insulin handy because this trailer introducing Halfbrick's new game, Bear vs. Art, is sweeter than strawberry sundae topped with candy-coated gumdrops. I have watched it four times and still giggle at how the bear's cr...
