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...   read

Nioh is still new. There are untold builds, routes, and exploits left for the community to discover. And yet here we already are, two weeks after release, with a 1:36:51 "All Main Missions" run by Distortion2. There's a lot of running and ...   read

Persona 5 still knows how to keep it weird in the Velvet Room

The Velvet Room is probably one of my favorite recurring elements in recent Persona games. Even if they have their own casts and distinct styles, I love having that one strange location to return to that ties it all together. In case y...   read

Watch Eiji Aonuma unbox Zelda: Breath of the Wild Limited Edition

I rushed to a GameStop the morning that the special editions for Zelda: Breath of the Wild were announced, and found that my store only had three of them -- I was third in line, but the guy in front of me "didn't like Zelda." Phew! If ...   read

Maybe don't watch this spoilery Zelda: Breath of the Wild video

There's a lot going on this Japanese television ad for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Too much, probably! You're not going to want to see it if you've held out this long and remained relatively spoiler-free. Stay strong, and also...   read

SNK teases new characters for King of Fighters XIV

As I've said before, King of Fighters XIV deserves more credit. Look, I get it if you were hesitant because of the art style. The pixelated visuals of the last few games were gorgeous, and eliminating it feels like a betrayal of sorts ...   read

Short doc examines the history of Nintendo's Hanafuda cards and alleged Yakuza ties

As most of you know by now, Nintendo started in 1889 as a playing card company -- specifically, selling Hanafuda cards. They even came full circle and honored this legacy by offering up a Mario themed set on Club Nintendo (RIP) several...   read

Get a look at the first 15 minutes of Toukiden 2

Toukiden 2 arrived in Japan in July of 2016, but given its niche premise of fighting oni during the Meiji era of Japan, it makes perfect sense that it's been held until "spring 2017" for the west. Koei Tecmo gave me the opportunity to test ...   read

A much better look at Ultra Street Fighter II's first-person mode

Capcom is bringing Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers to Nintendo Switch and it'll surely draw in some players simply as an early game for the system with nostalgia and multiplayer also going for it. One of the title's most curi...   read

This Overwatch and GoldenEye 64 mashup is just what I needed

There was a time where nearly every PC FPS had some form of a GoldenEye type mod, or some effort was made to create it. Before Halo swept the nation and gave us MLG, GoldenEye 64 was the gateway drug into the FPS genre for fo...   read

Japan's 1-2 Switch commercials look more fun than the game

It's going to be interesting to see how 1-2 Switch fares at launch. We all know that Zelda is going to have an insane attach rate -- I wouldn't be surprised if nearly everyone picked it up. But are people going to drop $50 on a mi...   read

Here's a way to farm gold in Nioh that's fast, easy, and lucrative

If there's one thing I could use more of in Nioh, it's gold. Gold is where it's at. It's true that you can play normally and boost your gold-grabbing efforts with stat-boosting equipment, your choice in guardian, or the achievement-esque t...   read

Super Bomberman R's intro is like a cheesy Saturday morning cartoon

Just several weeks before launch, we finally know the basic gist of the plot to Super Bomberman R, which is hitting the Switch as a launch title. The evil Emperor Bugler has decided to resurrect the Five Dastardly Bombers and rule the unive...   read

After seeing the Mega Man 2 Wily theme played on a Modulin, I want one

One of my favorite things to do on YouTube is watch those "split-screen" music videos the likes of which Smooth McGroove has recently made more famous on the video game side. Swedish band Wintergatan just put out an amazing video in the sam...   read

Bloodborne doesn't get much of a boost from the PS4 Pro's boost mode

When it comes to the PS4 Pro's upcoming "Boost Mode" that's now in beta testing, there's only one genre I really care about in terms of any sort of performance enhancement -- action games. If you can make a mascot platformer slightly more e...   read

FTL team reveals new strategy kaiju game Into the Breach

I call dibs on Ninjara for Nintendo Switch's Arms

Arms never really stood out to me until I started seeing more of it in action. I doubt it'll be the next big thing everyone is playing, but I'm sure I'll get some enjoyment out of it, as it basically looks like Punch Out!! with a more multi...   read

This straightforward overview video nails what sets the Nintendo Switch apart

One of the most confusing things about the Switch is how it has three different "modes." The Wii U was the same way with two specifications, one of which (tablet only, or, "off-screen play") may not have been supported. It's the same thing ...   read

Dark Souls III's final DLC promises a 'conclusive ending,' new footage emerges

I try to place headers into Souls stories that are as generic as possible, avoiding spoilers when I can. Sometimes it's unavoidable, but the most important thing you can do? Not watch videos. That includes this Dark Souls III: The Ringed Ci...   read

The official Geralt cosplayer lent his talents to this Witcher short film
