After nearly four months, VVVVVV is back on the 3DS eShop

Well this took a while. Back in May, Terry Cavanagh's VVVVVV was pulled from the 3DS eShop due to a homebrew exploit issue. It was kind of just...dormant for months, until finally popping back up this week. It seems to be fixed, and as a re...

VVVVVV pulled from the 3DS eShop

At this point I think I can safely call VVVVVV one of my favorite games of all time. It's pretty much perfect from start to finish, and despite its short length, I love the mix of forgiving checkpoints and high difficulty, with explora...

VVVVVV is coming to the PlayStation VVVVVVita

One of my favorite games of this decade so far (funnily enough it arrived just at the start of the decade in 2010), VVVVVV, is coming to the PlayStation Vita, publisher Nicalis has announced. It doesn't sound like anything new is ...

Review: VVVVVV (3DS)

VVVVVV is one of those games that doesn't feel like it should exist. It's name alone is hard enough for most people to compute. Then just look at the thing. It's nostalgic for a period of gaming that even I'm almost too old to remember, a p...

VVVVVV for the 3DS is... well, it's VVVVVV

During the eShop preview event, Tyrone Rodriguez of Nicalis was on hand to demonstrate the 3DS iteration of the revered, renowned, and hard-as-balls VVVVVV. I can confirm here officially - the game is still as insanely difficult and as infu...

Review: VVVVVV

Upon reading the list of 2010 IGF finalists, I had only one question: where the f*ck was VVVVVV? I know it's bad form to admit your opinion of a game before entering the review proper, but I'll just come out and say it -- VVVVVV is one of t...
