Ban this filth: Fake Cuphead games sneak onto Android

Welp, it was just a matter of time. At least six playable ass-to-mouth Cuphead bootlegs are now on the Google Play store. Don't even bother: They are nothing like the run and gun shooter we love. Half of them are ad-filled guides. What's wo...

Would you play Super Paper Metroid?

[Art by Martin Summerfield] Nintendo recently revealed that Fatal Frame V will feature an alternate costume modeled after Zero Suit Samus. The reveal trailer for the outfit currently has a likes-to-dislikes ratio of about 9-to-1 on YouTube....

Introducing the Xbox One for women

One of the big takeaways from this year’s E3 is that women are a bigger presence in gaming than ever before. More than half of all games on display at this year’s show let players step in the shoes of a female character, inclu...

Campy old Zelda CD-i games imagined as Hyrule Warriors DLC

Link: The Faces of Evil and Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon are two ill-fated Philips CD-i games that would be best left forgotten if they weren't such trainwrecks. Their legacy of unintentional hilarity endures through YouTube, gifs, and now th...

Anticipation Simulator 2015 pushed back to 2016

Most of us were looking forward to the release of Anticipation Simulator 2015 next fall, so it comes as quite a letdown to hear it's been delayed. This morning, Logjam Studios sent out a rather longwinded press release in whi...

Fallout 4 teaser site was just a brilliant hoax

The weird website thesurvivor2299.com seemed to be leading up to an announcement for Fallout 4, but now the site just has a video of a sad violin. Bethesda already said that they weren't going to be showing anything new at VGX, bu...

[April Fool's] Deus Ex goes 2D retro in Human Defiance

Not to be confused with the upcoming Wii U port -- which is, in fact, not an April Fools gag (angry comments coming in 3 ... 2... 1 ...) -- Deus Ex will be making the jump to 2D in Human Defiance -- well, at least in some alternate reality...

Infinity Blade II comes to Android ... but it's a fake

The mobile game market is a treasure trove of interesting little bits of software, but such treasure is to be approached with all the care of a whip-wielding adventurer. Sometimes the best prizes aren't all they're cracked up to be -- as an...

Fake Mega Man 2 HD welcomes you to the World of Tomorrow

YouTuber rickonami has conceptualized high-definition versions of several old-school videogames such as Castlevania: Bloodlines and Contra, then he posted some fake teasers. These are fun experiments meant to tantalize us and stoke our HD ...

If only there were an 8-bit Nyan Cat game by Konami

So. Nyan Cat. There is very little left to be said about Nyan Cat, except that it's my profound disappointment to inform you that Konami did not, in fact, release a licensed Nyan game in 1988. Not only would Nyan Cat vs. Tac Nayn have made ...

Adventure Time meets Super Mario Bros. 2... again

Do you guys remember .Tiff? She used to write for the site. I miss her a lot. She was the first person to show me how perfectly Cartoon Network's Adventure Time! and Super Mario Bros. 2 fit together. Ever since I first saw this image (and t...

Who's that fake Pokemon?

I like the fact that fake Pokemon exist. There is something inherently funny about multiple people in the world spending time, energy, and sometimes money to fulfill their dreams of temporarily tricking the citizens of the internet in to be...

Mega Man 8 fan-made demake free for the playing

Every once and a while, people take a crack at Mega Man 9 and Mega Man 10 by saying they look like "fan-made projects". Thing is, that's not the most effective insult. Technically speaking, Cave Story is a "fan-made project", but it's still...

Fan-created Mega Man FPS gets an even better trailer

Mega Man games seem to go over better when they stick to their 8-bit roots, but there's no reason why they can't be 8-bit-ish while operating on all three axes. Just take a look at Mega Man 8-bit Deathmatch, a game that takes the sprites fr...

Here are some completely fake images of a new Zelda

Zelda Informer was sent these screens which are purportedly from an upcoming Zelda title making its way to the Wii. They're totally fake, as evidenced by the creator later popping up in the Zelda Universe forums and claiming credit for the...

Enter the Mushroom Kingdom of madness in No More Plumbers

I just checked out the rest of the site where that semi-old Travis Touchdown skin for TF 2 is hosted, and I found some cool stuff. Turns out the creators of the skin, MechaWare, also makes their own fan games. I've only tried a few of them ...

Capcom teases fake Mega Man Vs Capcom Vs Marvel game

Damn you, Capcom. Why do you tease? This has to be the zillionth time you've advertised a fake game that I'd kill to actually play. Lego Strider, the NES Dark Void port, all just as awesome as (if not more awesome than) your real games. Thi...

Talking to the Needlemouse: The Emerald Hills developers

There's been a lot of talk about the brand new, 2D, high-definition Sonic game. It's been something people have wanted for a long time, and the idea that this could be a sort of “Sonic 4” is pretty damn amazing. We've even got...

Grue renewed: Fallout 3's Reign of Grelock is playable

Sadly, this article isn't about a Zork remake (not that a text-only game would benefit from bump mapping or bloom lighting) -- I just needed a catchy headline that would attract text adventure enthusiasts. If the phrase "You are likely...

A Star Radish gameplay video, growing in the wild

Ok, if you aren't some sort of SNK enthusiast, bear with me here. Earlier this year, on April Fool's Day, SNK Playmore announced a game called Star Radish, an 8-bit Neo Geo shmup made by a "Mikadosoft." Everyone thought the game w...

Could Close Range be the funniest faux FPS ever?

It's highly possible that it is the funniest faux FPS ever, but I've been known to get worked up over incredibly stupid things before. Then again, haven't we all? The Onion has a first-hand report on Close Range, the anticipated new game th...

Introducing the wave of the future: The Pii

The worst part about this video is that it's more or less indistinguishable from a real Wii rip-off product advertisment. Vii, Wii, Pii, they all sound kind of like something you might see peddled at that shady random electronics store wedg...
