Man, Mega Man 8 had some great art

A few weeks ago, a Mega Man fan named Heidi Kemps obtained a whole box of original Mega Man 8 animation cels for $300 at a swap meet. It just kind of organically happened, too -- Kemps states that a seller "noted [their] interest ...

The cosplayers of BlizzCon never cease to impress

Every year Blizzard's stable of characters grows a bit. I mean we've had over 10 characters alone in Heroes of the Storm, several in Overwatch, multiple Hearthstone expansions with unique cards, Diablo III's Necromancer, a few Starcraf...

Wow, this Zelda: Breath of the Wild sword throw is perfect

I wonder how long this person spent perfecting this Zelda: Breath of the Wild sword throw. Several hours? Maybe more? Maybe it took them a while to even come up with the idea (given that this post was made months after the game's relea...

These Street Fighter vs. Darkstalkers posters are glorious

It just feels right posting this on Halloween. Udon Entertainment has a line of 16"x24" prints that pay tribute to Street Fighter and Darkstalkers all while looking like classic movie posters. It doesn't get much better than that! And at $2...

Some people are way too good at Mario Odyssey

There's no shortage of impressive Super Mario Odyssey platforming feats making the rounds now that some players have already mastered Mario's cap-centric moves, but this? This shit is bananas. It's my new go-to clip. How good are people at ...

Mega Man Maker does what Capcom didn't

Years back Capcom was set to release a Mega Man level creator project that pre-dated Nintendo's Mario Maker called Mega Man Universe. Given the massive history Capcom could have drawn from (think of say, Battle Network assets...

Hold on, Breath of the Wild lets you do that?!

Making fantastic use of the newly-added video capture feature on Nintendo Switch, Twitter user Daniel Otaigbe has shown off his "special move" in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Or, as our own Darren Nakamura puts it, "a controllab...

Mega Man Arena promises Super Smash-esque combat

My first real web project (that wasn't a DBZ fansite I coded with rudimentary HTML) was a Mega Man hub I started with a good friend of mine as kids. I provided most of the content (guides, news) with some coding support and he did the ...

Yep, Line Rider is still good as hell

A few days ago, YouTube recommended me some video for Line Rider, a monstrously effective time-waster I haven't thought about in close to a decade. Like most of these automated suggestions, I only gave the video's title a glance before movi...

Sure, I'd play a Kingdom Hearts Cuphead DLC

I love me a good piece of concept art. Some of my favorites are from artist Simon Andersen (who created Owlboy), specifically his re-imagining of certain retro classics on other platforms. This "Cuphead meets Kingdom Hearts" mashup fro...

Finally, a Zelda: Breath of the Wild Lynel cosplay

I see Zelda related cosplay at nearly every event I attend, but this is something else. Cosplayer TheCrashProject managed to make a full-on Lynel suit for NYCC 2017, a creation that ended up taking them "three long weeks" to prepa...

Some lunatic hit level 4,000 in Overwatch

Most anyone who has played Overwatch knows that it can quickly turn into quite the time-sink. Committed players start chasing victories, competitive rankings, and loot boxes. The hours can really pile up. One person is the new standard...

It's the perfect time to start fresh in Dark Souls

For way too long now I've been telling myself I'm overdue for a fresh run through Bloodborne, but it looks like I'll need to postpone those plans yet again. The Dark Souls reddit community is starting its three-week "Return to Lordran" even...

Cuphead looks right at home on this old television

Playing Cuphead has made me want to seek out and watch a bunch of the 1930s cartoons from which it draws inspiration, but in the mean time, here's a real cool semi-related thing: YouTube user Lazy Game Reviews has hooked the game up to disp...

I'll never look at Yoshi the same way again

One of my favorite parts of the SNES Classic (aside from the system's all-too-important rewind feature) is that it has Nintendo bringing up old behind-the-scenes tidbits. The mini console gives us a focused opportunity to collectively remin...
