Nendoroid Solid Snake comes with a low-poly head

I've never gotten into Nendoroid, but after seeing that Wind Waker Link figure and now this Solid Snake one, all I can say is "send help" -- it's happening sooner than later. The key features here, in my book, are the alternate low-polygon ...

Get your very own Shovel Knight shovel and helmet

Skip to 3:40 to avoid the Minecraft stuff and get a first look at ThinkGeek's line of upcoming Shovel Knight role-play items. Both the shovel and helmet shown here are works-in-progress, though the former already looks spot on. My only que...

Captain Toad is Nintendo's best new protagonist

My goodness, this website for Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker. Our little adventurer can perform such actions as "throw," "dig," and "tumble." I can't take it. Too much. There's a gallery with several new screenshots, including the best of t...

Four new super cute Spelunky toys are inbound

I never got around to buying some of those Spelunky Minis. Now's my chance. Starting tomorrow, Fangamer will have the two-inch PVC figurines back in stock. And there are four new Minis to collect: Yeti King, Old Bitey, Alien Lord, and Anubi...

 
 
Do want photo

Alright, I need this Gravity Rush figure in my life

I don't like stuff. Maybe living lean is a product of smaller San Francisco living arrangements, maybe it's a product of semi-frequent moves, but I don't like to own a lot of things. Figures have almost always fallen into this category. Eve...

Heart Forth, Alicia is the best Kickstarter I've seen in ages

There's been a resurgence of Metroidvania games in recent years thanks to crowdfunding but not all of them have lived up to our lofty ambitions for the genre. Many haven't. As such, I hope you're not so skeptical as to avoid giving Heart F...

The Iconoclasts returns to show off a cool boss fight

It's been some time since we last had a chance to talk about The Iconoclasts, Joakim "Konjak" Sandberg's long-in-development, amazing-looking action-adventure game. Today he shared a video of a boss fight which shows good things come to th...

Analogue Nt is a NES made of aircraft-grade aluminum

I see those plastic-y all-in-one game consoles all the time. I feel drawn to them, but always pass on them in the end. I still have all my old systems, after all, and they all still work. But the Analogue Nt has already won me over, though ...

Gaming Heads' Doom diorama is droolworthy

Gaming Heads is taking pre-orders for its new Doom diorama based on the game's iconic box art. The polystone statue is 12.5 inches tall by 17 inches wide and, okay, I'll stop stalling -- this thing is unsurprisingly not cheap. At least not ...

N++ looks like a good reason to own a PS4

Metanet has taken to the PlayStation Blog to talk about N++, the newest of its difficult ninja platforming games. We knew this was coming and I've been concerned about my controller's well-being as a result, but the studio hasn't said much...

 
 
Mario Kart photo

They're finally selling real-life Mario Karts

To be a kid again. Or, a 70-pound adult. That's what it'll take to enjoy the Super Mario Kart Ride-On Vehicle, available in March at Toys"R"Us for $199.99. The kart has working pedals, can go in reverse, and there are tires for on-and off-r...

 
 
Persona Q bundle photo

Tres bien! Atlus announces Persona Q 3DS bundle

And doesn't have a picture to show for it. Damn. I need to see this design. Atlus has confirmed a 3DS XL bundle (for Japan) for when Persona Q drops on June 5 (in Japan). In a typically nice Atlus move, first print copies of the 3DS game wi...

 
 
The Witness photo

I don't think I'll mind getting lost in The Witness

I'm looking out my window as I type this and what I see is a mostly overcast sky and lots of drab grays and blues. It's sleepy. What I'd rather be looking at are these warm, teeming-with-life screenshots from Jonathan Blow's exploration-puz...

Don't look up: New screenshots of The Forest

First off, if you've not seen this trailer for Endnight Games' open-world survival horror title The Forest, you're going to want to spend a minute and a half doing so. There are new screenshots, viewable below, which show a dead shark, a de...

Cook slain monsters in the stunning Battle Chef Brigade

Trinket Studios' Battle Chef Brigade has come out of seemingly nowhere, but looking over the first artwork for this fantasy cooking competition game, the team has surely been hard at work on the concept behind the scenes for quite some time...

Kirby: Triple Deluxe shows well in this extensive footage

It's only now hitting me how much I want a proper Kirby on 3DS and Kirby: Triple Deluxe appears to be exactly that. While the game released in North America and Europe yet, it's out now in Japan. Wasting no time, NintenDaan has already upl...

 
 
Cuphead photo

Cuphead could be this year's big run-and-gun game

That's my hope, anyway. Cuphead is one of those games I feel bad for not noticing sooner. Sporting a remarkable sense of style and animation, this looks to represent the best of the run-and-gun genre, with developer Studio MDHR citing infl...

Ranko Tsukigimes Longest Day has a giant evil Pomeranian

Ranko Tsukigime’s Longest Day will serve as the concluding piece to Short Peace, a four-part animated anthology from Akira creator Katsuhiro Otomo. I need to see this film so badly. Just look at the art in those trailers. Meanwhile, ...

Unknown Worlds' next game is Subnautica

The studio behind Natural Selection 2 has started talking about its next big project, Subnautica. Described as "an open world, underwater exploration and construction game," this wonderful-sounding game is very much in its early days. "Subn...

Explore the stars in Hello Games' No Man's Sky

The makers of Joe Danger are back with a completely different type of game. No Man's Sky is a procedural exploration title that debuted at the Spike VGX awards. It looks freakin' incredible. Hello Games' Sean Murray dropped by to chat abou...

 
 
Luigi 2DS photo

Luigi 2DS spotted! It looks better than the Luigi 3DS

Kotaku received some pictures of what appears to be a Luigi-themed 2DS. I want it. It's a simple white with green trimmings (buttons and so on) and a Luigi etched into the back. It's a lot cleaner than the cool, but busy Luigi 3DS. I defini...

Koi-koi! Nintendo's Pokemon hanafuda cards hitting Japan

Remember when Nintendo began as a hanafuda card manufacturer? I don't, because I wasn't alive in 1889, but maybe there are some Highlanders among you fine folk and I'd be remiss if I didn't encourage you to decapitate each other. There can ...

Pre-order Zelda in the UK for a mini musical chest

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is shaping up to be something special. I don't think many of us 3DS owners need much convincing, but if so, take a look at the pre-order bonus UK retailer GAME is offering: a miniature chest that p...

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter looks spectacular

The Astronauts' The Vanishing of Ethan Carter continues to look intriguing. And stunning -- gosh, these new screenshots are lovely. Presented from a first-person perspective, this PC (and eventually next-gen console, if everything goes acco...
