Psssh! What is this? Smash Bros.?

[Header by Elemental-Aura] Despite Allistair Pinsof's well-reasoned arguments against PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale's being a Smash Bros. clone, it's just so damn blatant! I mean, just look at it! LOOK AT IT! How can it be any more ob...   read

Sequel to PC Mega Man clone Rosenkreuzstilette is out

Are you familiar with "doujin soft"? They're essentially Japanese indie games, and although most are of the fan game variety, major publishers tend to leave them alone. As it should be! Fan games aren't harming anybody! In 2007, the doujin...   read

What I wouldn't give to play this Sega Smash variant

No matter how much good press PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale receives, it'll never quite settle with me. The fact that it is a "clone" of Super Smash Bros. isn't what's bothersome -- I personally had a grand time with the game at E3. ...   read

Fangasmic Mega Man clone Rokko Chan gets a remix album

Sonic-inspired Freedom Planet tickles my platforming itch

Who doesn't love a good clone? As much flak as people like to give certain games for playing too much like other games, its nice to see a well-established style or formula applied to a new world with original characters from time to time. ...   read

Mole Kart, the amazingly shameless iOS Mario Kart ripoff

Ripoff games on iOS are nothing new, with no shortage of developers willing to trade their integrity for a handfull of dollars. Mole Kart is an almost beautiful in its utter, unapologetic, shamelessness.  As you can see from the trail...   read

Cute Mega Man copycat Rokko Chan gets OST and art book

Last week, I shared Rokko Chan, a most adorable Mega Man clone that swapped the Blue Bomber for the Blue Bombette. It's a great game in its own right, sporting the same high polish, incredible pixel art, and catchy jams as its NES cousin. I...   read

Rokko Chan is incredible Mega Man gaming goodness

The Christmas surprises keep coming! We should count ourselves so lucky! I've repeated this over and over -- I'm sure you're all quite tired of hearing my pissing and moaning by now -- but this has not been a good year for Mega Man. Just wh...   read

This Cloud cosplay is so good I thought it was a render

I don't make it a habit of posting cosplay here, because there's lots of good game-related cosplay out there, and after all there's Japanator if you want to look at cosplay. The thing is though, I was browsing through my RSS feed and saw th...   read

FIFA 08, Need for Speed Pro Street, and the Sims coming to the Genesis ... kinda

Unfortunately for our Latin American brethren, the sub-Amazonian games industry has always been a bit mystical and nefarious. Prices are exorbitant, piracy is rampant, and, for better or worse, the black market seems to be thriving. Some of...   read

Hands on: Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition

Capcom made it very clear that they are the company to watch this millennium. They even scorned the rest of the industry for not taking chances and simply relying on sequels to keep the money rolling in. It's extremely ironic then, that...   read

According to Subway, gamers are fat and will die prematurely

It seems that lovable fata*s-turned-skinny-white-guy Jared isn't cutting it anymore. He's tired, played out. Sooo 2006, as it were. Without Jared, how is Subway supposed to sell sandwiches? By playing on people's deep seated fea...   read
