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

VVVVVV is coming to the PlayStation VVVVVVita

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

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...
