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

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

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

Okay, Nintendo. This is more like it. I'm not sure what you were trying with the little girls and Tomodachi Life, but these Mario Kart 8 commercials are decidedly more entertaining and engaging for television, especially given their lack o...   read

Apparently, Tomodachi Life is for little girls

Life would be great if we all had pet Titanfall mechs
