Final Fantasy XV's Moogle Chocobo Carnival temporarily transforms Altissia

Final Fantasy XV has more than enough stuff to do before you start to dive into the realm of DLC, but it's there, if you want it. And thankfully there's some free DLC on the way in the form of the Moogle Chocobo Carnival, accompanied b...   read

The Sexy Brutale is Groundhog Day in a murder-casino

I've had The Sexy Brutale in my periphery for a while, because the name has "sexy" in it, and sex sells, but now that there's a gameplay trailer, there's finally something to go on. And it looks neat. Cool art, nice music; kind of reminds ...   read

Charles Martinet, the voice of Mario (and more) is always delightful to watch

While you'd be hard pressed to find someone who works at Nintendo and says they hate their job on camera, Charles Martinet, the voice of Mario (and many more like Luigi) seems to genuinely love his job. He kind of has to if he's been d...   read

Metroid prequel fan game is out now, but how long will it survive?

Most Nintendo fans agree that if there's one series that the publisher consistently fumbles, it's Metroid. Okay, so I get that maybe they weren't thrilled with the reception with Other M, but to see them shut down other fan games in additio...   read

Musou Stars adds Lu Bu, and another Deception character

Was there ever any doubt that Lu Bu would make it into Musou Stars, the all-star collective of Warriors project that Koei Tecmo is set to unleash on Japan on March 2? Probably not. But now he's set to join the fray along with Oda ...   read

Indie PS3/Vita action game Malicious resurrected on PS4

Back in 2012 (or 2010 if you're in Japan), Malicious kind of came and went. I knew a few people who were really into it given the relative drought of action games these days (at least, relative to the PS2 and beginning of the PS3 eras), but...   read

The sad, manic face of Wii Music is performing at the Trump inauguration

By E3 2008, the Wii had just passed the Xbox 360 in US sales, despite having come out a year later. With the PS3 flagging, it was Nintendo's race to win. And then we met Ravi. Riding high, Nintendo came into E3 2008 with absolutely nothing...   read

Super Mario Odyssey takes Mario to some weirdly mundane places

Mario has been to such strange and fantastic places over his lifetime, it's ironically strange to see him hopping around a regular-ass city. At the very least, his hopping is augmented by his new physics-defying hat. He can throw it and jum...   read

Horizon Zero Dawn gets a gorgeous cinematic story trailer

I just can't get over how gorgeous Horizon Zero Dawn is. Whether or not it's going to be a great experience overall is still up in the air, but I'm glad it's so, so pretty. Sony released a new trailer showing off some of the game's story ci...   read

Danganronpa V3 is out this week in Japan

Danganronpa might be niche, but it's a big enough hit in Japan and western regions to warrant spinoffs, an anime, a VR game, and now, a third proper iteration. That actually launches in Japan tomorrow on January 12 as Danganronpa V3: Killin...   read

Madman creates his own AI, trains it how to play Mario Kart

Only using an open source program that computes data, software developer Kevin Hughes set out to create an AI for Mario Kart 64. In a fascinating rundown on his blog he explains how he did just that, slowly training a Mario to competently d...   read

Kuja and his eyeliner are joining the cast of Dissidia Final Fantasy arcade

I think Kuja is a pretty underrated villain in the Final Fantasy stable. He has one of the best themes, and along with Kefka, is one of the most formidable antagonists in the series. Kuja also has a great little moment with Zidane at t...   read

It feels like there's a new One Piece game every month! Thousand Storm coming to mobile

I hope Capcom's new London Resident Evil publicity stunt goes better than the last one

Many years ago to promote Resident Evil 5, Capcom scattered "body parts" across London. Now, if you can't already see the issues here given that millions of folks don't know what Resident Evil even is, evidently Capcom had to issue a statem...   read

Poochy & Yoshi shorts are cute as hell, easy to take out of context

There's something to be said about emotive art. Whether it's gibberish talk like Banjo Kazooie or pantomiming, I love that a common development issue like a lack of a budget can lead to some amazing characters that say so much without ...   read

Diablo III anniversary patch that revisits the first game is out 'soon'

[Update: It's out!] Diablo just turned 20, and although we didn't really get a whole lot of fanfare out of BlizzCon outside of an event and a new class, the former is coming very soon as a result of the upcoming 2.4.3 patch. As previou...   read

MidBoss looks like a rad take on roguelikes

The premise of MidBoss is a common one (a weak imp wants to be top dog), but the way they actually reach that goal, gameplay-wise, sounds dope. The concept is that you'll be constantly possessing strong foes throughout the game, as you emba...   read

Final Fantasy XV Kingsglaive bonus feature is all about Ultros
