Pac-Man Vs. is getting a download play style app on Switch

One of the coolest features from the DS and 3DS was the ability to share games wirelessly. While it obviously wasn't a full version of the title, it allowed for anytime multiplayer for friends who didn't own the cartridge. For the Switch, N...

Bandai Namco files trademark for Pac-Man Maker

Super Mario Maker proved that developers don't need to ship a traditional game to have players fawning over the experience. If the nostalgia's right -- and this part's very important -- giving people the toolset to make their own exper...

Ms. Pac-Man has taken over Google Maps

Ahead of April Fools' Day, Google has turned Google Maps into a playable game of Ms. Pac-Man. Just click the little icon (it's unmissable on the mobile app and found on the bottom left on desktop), then off you go. Streets become pellet-fil...

Review: Pac-Man Championship Edition 2

Bandai Namco has done such a wonderful job revitalizing Pac-Man. It's gotten to the point where even if you weren't all that into the original decades-old game, you're still liable to succumb to Pac-Man fever. The Championship Edition serie...

Pop some pellets with Pac-Man's dog

I've seen a lot of live-action versions of classic video games before, but rarely have I seen one as adorable as this. A new YouTube series called Animal Arcade posted its first video today, and well, I don't want to spoil it for you.  ...

Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 drops September 13

Bandai Namco has earned enough goodwill with Pac-Man Championship Edition and its follow-ups that I was wholeheartedly down for the sequel coming into the announcement trailer. What a game! For the sequel, the ghost trains are back alongsi...

Pac-Man 256 is coming to consoles and PC with multiplayer

I missed Hipster Whale's Pac-Man 256 on mobile, but an upgraded port with four-player local co-op and the ability to play with a gamepad by default sounds pretty good, actually. Publisher Bandai Namco is releasing the game on PlayStation 4...

These Funko Pac-Man figures are distressing

The hell is up with Ms. Pac-man here? Why is Pac-Man all square? These Funko figures of the classic pill popping arcade icons are up to their knees in the uncanny valley and I don't appreciate it one bit. Personally, I've never understood w...

Pac-Man wants to eat your diapers

Pac-Man reminds me of a child actor whose star burned too bright. Much like that cute kid from that one movie, Pac-Man fell on hard times after his crippling meth addiction landed him in rehab. Nowadays, the poor guy can been seen eating ou...

Wow, I CANNOT believe Namco's Pac-Man redesign

I've been seeing this (above) and similar images all over the 'net and I am stunned that Namco would choose to redesign an iconic character like Pac-Man so dramatically. I mean, the arms and legs in all those earlier 3D Pac-Man adventures w...

Namco's Pac-Man 35th anniversary celebration is just sad

On this day in 1980, Pac-Man debuted in Japanese arcades. Now, publisher Bandai Namco has decided to celebrate the arcade classic's 35th anniversary in the most depressing way possible. The company has passed along a note announcing the exi...
