I love it when a game's universe and characters are fleshed out in supplementary content. It's a chance to illustrate a world with vivid color and character, unfolding the vision of a fictional place into something more tangible. This works...

Meet Lola Pop, your new favorite ARMS fighter

Arms' starting lineup of characters felt a bit small, but they're making up for it with new, free downloadable characters like Max Brass. Now we get a sweets-loving girl dressed somewhat like a clown with inflatable pants that would make M...

I would play the hell out of Arms on Game Boy Advance

These demake art projects have a tendency to create a crushing sense of false hope, but I appreciate looking at them and wondering what might have been all the same. Artist Bomb998 shared this gem over Twitter -- a retro-tinted Arms feature...

New Arms fighter looks like they're wearing Hammer pants

Arms. In this post-Splatoon 2 world, are you still playing it? I'm not, but that's because I don't own the game. Or a Switch. But more than one million people have bought it and next year at Evo Japan it will be one of the featured tit...

Taking to Twitter today, Nintendo announced that the final boss of ARMS, Max Brass, will be arriving on July 12. The commish, who has already mined three months worth of salt from this author, will also arrive with his own set of ARMS, alon...

Take a gander at how broken Max Brass is in ARMS

ARMS' new DLC character will be joining the fray this month and to get us all hyped, Nintendo of Japan has uploaded a new sizzle reel for the godly final boss. I'm still not quite sure how he is balanced, because he definitely looks overpow...

Arms' first big update adds LAN and arena modes

My biggest complaint about Arms was a lack of things to do, and Nintendo seems to be rectifying that, albeit slightly, with its first patch. Update 1.1.0 adds in LAN play on top of "arena" mode, which is basically like a spectator-enabled g...

Conan joins Will Arnett for an Arms flavored Clueless Gamer

Clueless Gamer is one of those segments that I'm happy is still around -- especially given how quickly some late night hosts abandon bits or run them into the ground. People accuse Conan of "hating games," but that's his entire shtick, and ...

Review: Arms

Nintendo has an uphill battle when it comes to convincing people it can do competitive play right -- both in general terms with online play and in the eSports arena. They've traditionally shied away from it, but with the explosion of Splato...

ARMS' new character looks like an F-Zero racer

Nintendo did a pretty solid job of expanding the rather basic launch of Splatoon with some DLC throughout 2015. While it may have been on-disc, all of it was free and it worked in a way to keep players engaged with the title over a longer p...

Arms is in the running for the best theme song of the year

Even though I had some problems with Arms, no one can deny that it's one of Nintendo's most stylish games as of late. That flair includes the amazing theme song (that Nintendo just released in video form below) that gets me jacked up every ...

Ninjara was the most-picked fighter in Arms' Testpunch

If you threw down in the Global Testpunch demo for Arms, you might already have a sense for this, but the number-one character? That's none other than Ninjara, according to the Nintendo's player stats. I didn't participate in the Testpunch...

This weekend's ARMS Testpunch adds Twintelle and 'Hoops'

While I wasn't really sold on ARMS from last week's Testpunch, it looks like Nintendo is adding a few more things to keep the hype train rolling. For this weekend's time slots, players will have access to the sexy character Twintelle as wel...

What did you think of the ARMS Global Testpunch?

Nintendo certainly knows how to market a game. While it could have gone the easy route and just provided a simple demo for both Splatoon 2 and ARMS, it decided on stress testing its servers with limited time slots to get as much traffic as ...

The Global Testpunch left me feeling optimistic about Arms

After an hour spent with Arms in tonight's limited-time, limited-content Global Testpunch demo, I'm feeling... pretty good about it? Yeah, I think so. Not over the moon, but good. Nintendo has come up with an accessible enough but still nua...

Nintendo is hosting 'Global Testpunch' events for Arms

Today's Nintendo Direct presentation for Arms is heavy on specifics, almost to the point of being overwhelming. But now that I've gotten such a good sense of this stretchy, long-limbed fighting game, I'm no longer sitting on the fence. That...

Funky Nintendo fighter Arms hits Switch on June 16

Today's Nintendo Direct has let loose approximately 80 release dates for Nintendo Switch and 3DS games. I'm but one man! Have mercy! That said, one date I'll definitely want to keep track of is June 16, 2017 -- that's when Arms, Nintendo's...

Meet Nintendo's core cast of fighters in Arms

Chris already initiated the dibs callin' process for Arms when he posted the Japanese-language versions of these clips last month, so I'm left with the slightly off-smelling scraps. Not that I mind! Out of the combatants introduced so far ...

I call dibs on Ninjara for Nintendo Switch's Arms

Arms never really stood out to me until I started seeing more of it in action. I doubt it'll be the next big thing everyone is playing, but I'm sure I'll get some enjoyment out of it, as it basically looks like Punch Out!! with a more multi...

Arms is beautiful and fun, but not the next big eSport

There are times when I feel like I'm not playing a game to its max potential, that there is some high skill ceiling I'm not quite reaching. That often comes when playing fighting games, but not just fighting games. Games like Crysis an...

Some Switch games won't force motion controls, including Arms

One of the things I loved about the Wii U is how much Nintendo backpedaled on motion. Sure some games had it as an option to aim with the GamePad's gyroscope, but compare say, Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze's smooth button-based rolling as op...

Ys remains in the shadows even to this day, but I think it holds higher promise for a great new release than even those Final Fantasy But I think it has this success because it remains there, just giving us the best they can without having to rush
