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...   read

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...   read

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...   read

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 ...   read

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...   read

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...   read

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...   read

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...   read

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...   read

Dead Rising 2 trailer? Probably not, but this is still pretty cool

I know we cried wolf before, but that was for humor's sake. That other stuff? Definitely not even close to looking real, and even Capcom gave us sh*t for posting that. This at least looks like something real, or the intro to something I'd ...   read

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...   read

I think I'm losing my mind: Extra Mario Bros

 There are times in my life where I think I'm going insane. When I'm up late watching Comedy Central and they actually start dropping the f-bomb despite it being basic cable. When I go to a McDonald's and see that they sell veggie-burg...   read

Fake game Friday: Hatred and Pride

More often than not, modern videogames aren't really about choices. Yeah, we've got branching storylines and local agency, but in pretty much every game there is always a "good" or "best" ending which players will, more ...   read
