The North American Switch commercials are kind of bland

Last week, Nintendo released some advertisements for the Switch in its home country. Earlier today, some English language commercials for the Switch were released, and they'll no doubt be unavoidable if you have a kid with any sort of scree...   read

Nintendo's Switch Super Bowl commercial is pretty great

With Super Bowl LI only a few days away, you're going to see quite a few companies getting in on the time honored tradition of expensive, sometimes weird commercials. For the first time (considering the Pokémon 20th Anniversary...   read

Nintendo: Play Switch while you poop

Now that's just silly. But yes, it's real. Nintendo's latest German trailer for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe shows off various locations you can take your Switch to play on the go. Take it to class and hope you don't get caught (hey at least t...   read

Live action Gravity Rush 2 trailer featuring anti-gravity cat is wild

Talk about going out of your way to make something cool to promote your game. SIE Japan released a four minute live action trailer about two Japanese sisters and their pet cat. We view an everyday apartment from the first-person perspectiv...   read

Yo-Kai Watch 3: Sukiyaki claymation ads are kawaii as hell

How could you possibly make Jibanyan cosplaying Indiana Jones even more cute? Make it into a clay animation (or claymation) of course. These short but sweet TV spots kind of make me wish the whole game was a 3D clay-animated adventure....   read

Undertale 'little buddies' toy commercial has a lot of heart

Indie sensation Undertale is getting some new figures courtesy of Fangamer, and to promote the launch, it has released a trailer. It reminds me of an '80s commercial with little boys playing a little too roughly with their toys. You ca...   read

Japanese teens, um, rap about Miitomo

This is...something. Non-English rap has always rung weird to me. It's like that hit Italian song that's meant to sound like hit American music, but the singer is just stringing together nonsense sounds. There's something uncanny about it....   read

Remember when Uncharted 3 tried to sell you Subway?

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End serves as a weird hanger-on to the Uncharted trilogy housed on the PS3. We could've left it at that, even "that" was the disappointing Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception -- especially if Uncharted 4 is meant to serve ...   read

David Hayter is back as Snake and he's... selling cars?

Many fans missed hearing David Hayter as the English voice of Snake in Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain, and it's clear he's still bummed to this day to have been pushed aside in favor of actor Kiefer Sutherland. That...   read

Nintendo's first Miitomo commercial is as insane as you'd expect

Nintendo is known for having some great commercials, like this classic for Super Smash Bros. or the infectious Splatoon Squid Kid commercial. The Miitomo commercial seen above isn't quite as great as those, but it is still t...   read

Animal Crossing gets its PONPONPON on

Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer is almost here, but I'm not seeing much excitement for it. Maybe that's because it's a full priced game that looks to offer just a fraction of the features found in the previously released Animal C...   read

The worst part of the '90s are alive in this Splatoon commercial

The '90s had some terrible commercials, like for real. They often times had really cheesy or bad jingles, just like this new commercial for Splatoon. The only thing this is missing is a geeky kid with glasses covering a bully in paint with...   read

Rockstar made a TV ad just for GTA Online's Heists

Both the PC version of Grand Theft Auto V and GTA Online's Heists have been a contentious issue for fans of the franchise. Frankly, most people adopted an "I'll believe it when I see it" mentality, as no one was ever sure either would...   read

Majora's Mask gets a cute lil '90s-feeling, live-action commercial

These Super Smash Bros. commercials are silly

I mean, yeah, what else would you expect? It's Super Smash Bros. Nintendo's television spots for the 3DS game feature the tagline "Settle it in Smash," which is a good fit for the series, admittedly, but I'm far more interested in that Doc...   read

Japanese Super Smash Bros. 3DS commercial is cute & pastel

The N64 Super Smash Bros. commercial will probably stick with me more than any other TV commercial for a videogame, but this 3DS-focused Smash Bros. commercial from Japan is nice in its own right.    read

These three Mario Kart 8 commercials are pretty awesome

Apparently, Tomodachi Life is for little girls

Life would be great if we all had pet Titanfall mechs

Property damages claims galore. They'd be headache, but they'd get you money. Muggings would be down (and then way up when muggers got mechs). You'd have someone to let your dog out to pee while you're work. Plus you'd get to be an offbeat...   read
