Ha, Konami is doing another Castlevania pachislot machine

I love how trolly the below commercial is. You open it, see the text, and hear the classic Castlevania music. It's so easy to get fired up, like maybe, just maybe Konami is coming out with a competitor for Bloodstained. But nope, it is...

It is about time we got a Castlevania compilation

Last month, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night celebrated its 20th anniversary. 20 years ago, a game regularly seen on Best Of lists, showed the world that there was still demand for rich, intense 2D action in an era where everything was ju...

Argentine soccer great Diego Maradona is suing Konami

Konami's next legal battle is coming from an unlikely source. Argentine soccer great (and brief national team coach) Diego Maradona will file suit against Konami for the unauthorized use of his likeness in Pro Evolution Soccer 2017. Maradon...

Super Bomberman R will get a patch for 'control lag issues'

I wasn't holding out much hope that Super Bomberman R would see many updates, but it sounds like at least one important patch is on the way. Konami says it is "aware that some players are experiencing control lag issues" and that, better ye...

Review: Super Bomberman R

I was able to witness the rise and fall of Bomberman with my own eyes. It was one of the first games I ever played on the NES, and when developer Hudson Soft died in 2012, I poured one out for the once-great franchise. For six long years af...

Contra enters the real world on its 30th anniversary

Contra (or Probotector, depending on what part of the world you hail from) was one of the Nintendo Entertainment System's most iconic games, one that strongly resonates with people who grew up with it even today. The series just celebr...

Konami makes waifu wars literal with Bombergirl

With Super Bomberman R making its way to the Switch, I had hoped it meant Konami was going to usher in a new age of Bomberman games. But who could've guessed that meant introducing a new series full of buxom ladies? Announced at Japan Expo ...

The 'R' in Super Bomberman R means three different things

At last month's Nintendo Switch event, Konami revealed a new Bomberman game. This was notable for a few reasons: the last non-mobile Bomberman game came out in 2010 and Hudson Soft published it; Konami is making more than just PES ...

Brazzers did a Metal Gear Solid: The Phantom Pain porn parody

Metal Rear Solid: The Phantom Peen took a lot longer to come out than Brazzers' Final Fantasy XV porn parody, but it seems like a passion project. From the dick-sucking Snake Eater reference to Boss and Hushy's accurate costuming to the iDr...

Here's tons of pictures of Japanese Nintendo Switch cases

I know a lot of folks care about cases sizes and the like, especially collectors. It's nice knowing roughly how much space something is going to take up, and it seems like the Nintendo Switch physical copies are actually smaller than P...

You can now get a real Big Boner on Xbox One

Shadows of the Damned is a pretty overlooked game from last generation. It may not be Suda51's best title, but it has a really great story, solid gunplay, and some awesome visuals. It also provided us with an excellent soundtrack by Silent ...

Super Bomberman R on Nintendo Switch will cost $50

When Super Bomberman R was announced for the Nintendo Switch, a lot of us probably assumed that it would be coming as a light digital download type game for $15 or so, and that $60 price was just a placeholder. That sounds reasonable, ...

There's a new Bomberman for Nintendo Switch and I'm in heaven

While Nintendo has been showcasing local multiplayer on the Nintendo Switch with games like NBA 2K17 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, I've been imagining my own what-if scenario this whole time. My dream setup involves Super Bomberman 2 on the go....

Just listening to this data-mined P.T. audio is unnerving

On the opposite end of the spectrum from that absurdly funny fan-made Metal Gear Solid V animation that swapped in Norman Reedus' character and Lisa from P.T., here we have another great find dug up by data miners: all the spooky scary voi...

Hideo Kojima got his Game Award at last

A year later, Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima has accepted an award at The Game Awards 2016, this time for being an "industry icon." His acceptance kicked off this year's show, with a very emotional Geoff Keighley recounting his faile...

That darn Snake Eater pachislot machine looks so good!

Some more images have surfaced for Konami's pachislot machine based on Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater and, ugh, these characters have never looked so good. This is the stuff of broken dreams for any fan wishing that somehow, some way, thin...
