The Slowpoke Song has been translated

My 3DS gets so little use that whenever I do dig out the system, I forget that I downloaded that ridiculous Slowpoke theme. It goes "yaa!" whenever you scroll through your games and apps. "Yaa. Yaa. Yayayaya." It's great. Also great? The ne...   read

It only took 112 tries to beat Dark Souls' hardest boss with voice commands

Please save your hardest boss arguments for someone else, as Dark Souls isn't even hard anyways, as I have deftly proven a second time. To enough folks, Ornstein and Smough are pegged as toughest. The duo, "was responsible for 111 out of 4...   read

Hylics is the trippiest RPG I've ever seen

Are there stranger games out there than Hylics? Surely. But I haven't seen them, and I don't know that I would even want to see them. This "recreational program with light JRPG elements" is about as much as I can handle without turning away...   read

What's going on with this goofy Time cover?

Twitter is blowing up with the new Time cover featuring Oculus VR founder Palmer Luckey. Some people seem upset -- "isn't virtual reality a hard-enough sell already?" -- which I find funny. One silly magazine cover isn't going to ruin the t...   read

New Silent Hill announced, it's a slot machine

Remember that hot new Castlevania pachinko game featuring "erotic violence?" Well, I'm guessing the reception was so positive that Konami decided to announce a new Silent Hill slot machine. Hurray! Just what we have been asking f...   read

Katamari designer's new game Wattam is all warm and fuzzy

"Oh, thank eff. There's a trailer!" A couple weeks ago, I saw Wattam, a near-indescribable game from Funomena and the creator of Katamari Damacy, Keita Takahashi, at a pre-E3 event. (He had excellent socks.) I'd heard that name before, Wat...   read

Publishers think Swery's next game idea is 'perverted'

I'd be perfectly content with a conclusion to Dark Dreams Don't Die, but Hidetaka "Swery" Suehiro's idea for a new game sounds bizarre, original, and worth exploring. Here's how he described it in an interview with GameCentral: "a story abo...   read

Rub kiwi juice on pregnant Elsa's belly, and more terrible Frozen games

A few months ago, Jordan dutifully informed us of a game that we probably could've gone our whole lives without knowing about: a Frozen game in which Anna gives birth. What if I told you there are more Frozen pregnancy games? Man...   read

I hope Veryman.Expert becomes America's next great pastime

Think about the weirdest thing you saw today. Veryman.Expert is probably weirder. It's a browser-based god game, so to speak, about creating men. There are no losers, ever. You can adjust your man's movements -- a touch of Leanin here, a li...   read

Guy 'gits gud,' beats Bloodborne without leveling

YouTube user BOYvsVIDEOGAME decided to beat Bloodborne without leveling up or using a gun, and he's done it. Somehow -- with a lot of patience and practice, I'd imagine -- he's done it. He went with the Waste of Skin origin for his characte...   read

Haha, really? Interplay is bringing back ClayFighter

Mere days ago, I hoped out loud that 2015 would become the year of clay for videogames, and now there's an announcement for a remaster of ClayFighter. Shame it won't be out until 2016. Interplay and Drip Drop Games (who?) are promising "the...   read

If this is what a 'rhythm violence' game looks like, I'm all about them
