This fan-made video has me pining for a real Mario Kart 8 battle mode

After following up 7, Mario Kart 8 was a breath of fresh air. I loved playing it for months on end, there was just one major problem -- the "battle mode" sucked. I called Nintendo "out of their mind" back in 2014, and I stand by that s...   read

We'll see more of Gran Turismo Sport before E3

Rumor: 90s Arcade Racer might be the latest indie to drop the Wii U

The Wii U had a good run, but now that Nintendo has basically made it clear that the NX will, despite saying to the contrary, take over the function of the Wii U, some indies are pulling out. One such team, based on a listing for the game, ...   read

Temper your expectations for May's Games with Gold

If April's Games with Gold lineup was the best yet, and I'm inclined to agree with Brett that it was, then whatever Microsoft has in store for May can't possibly stack up. I had that sentiment in mind when reading over the list of what's co...   read
