It's time to pour cocktails for catgirls

I stumbled on "waifu bartending simulator" VA-11 HALL-A a year and a half ago and was smitten like a kitten amid its catgirls and racist corgis. Then the waiting game. And now it's almost over, to be replaced by an even better game: the ac...

 
 
Rare 3DS cover plate photo

This New 3DS cover plate is slick and super rare

I'm now lost in a rabbit hole of cool-looking cover plates for the New Nintendo 3DS. It all started with the Mario design above. It's thought to be one of the rarer cover plates out there, and for good reason -- it's available to customers ...

Bayonetta 2 director would like to make a Spider-Gwen game

Bayonetta 2 director Yusuke Hashimoto, daydreaming on Twitter, expressed interest in making some kind of Spider-Man, or "Spider-Verse," game. "If I had to work with an existing IP," Hashimoto said, "I'd want to make a game in the Spider-Ver...

Could this be it? A true Banjo-Kazooie spiritual successor?

We've been let down before, but I'm unable to contain my enthusiasm for Playtonic Games' Project Ukulele, a new platforming adventure from the people we want making this type of game. Formed by six former Rare staffers, the studio includes ...

RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 studio working on new theme park title

I can't effectively describe how pleased I am knowing that multiple games about rollercoasters are in the works. There's RollerCoaster Tycoon World, ScreamRide, and now Coaster Park Tycoon from Frontier Developments, the studio behind Rolle...

My desk craves this game-inspired Predator 2 figure

I'm still kicking myself for missing NECA's glow-in-the-dark Jason Voorhees figure based on his loud design in Friday the 13th for the NES. It was exclusive to San Diego Comic-Con, and I should've had a friend nab one for me. Shoulda coulda...

Namco's Godzilla confirmed for PS3, PS4 in the West

Each new trailer for Bandai Namco's Godzilla PS3 (and now PS4) game has looked better than the last but I didn't want to get my hopes up knowing it was only confirmed for release in Japan. I mean, I did anyway, but everything's going to wor...

 
 
 
PS1-looking PS4 photo

Limited run, 20th anniversary PS4 is a PS1 throwback

Just for a second I thought this was colored like the silver PS2 I always thought was kind of sucky (or the recent Dragon Quest PS4), and then I saw those PlayStation Japan live stream pictures (via Kotaku) with that matte gray look, ...

 
 
Splatoon photo

Splatoon might just be Nintendo's most promising new game

When Nintendo announced its wacky four-on-four shooter Splatoon at E3, I thought it looked cool -- spraying ink on the battlefield and then swimming around in said ink is cool -- but I didn't freak out like some people. Having now seen tod...

Nendoroid Solid Snake comes with a low-poly head

I've never gotten into Nendoroid, but after seeing that Wind Waker Link figure and now this Solid Snake one, all I can say is "send help" -- it's happening sooner than later. The key features here, in my book, are the alternate low-polygon ...

Get your very own Shovel Knight shovel and helmet

Skip to 3:40 to avoid the Minecraft stuff and get a first look at ThinkGeek's line of upcoming Shovel Knight role-play items. Both the shovel and helmet shown here are works-in-progress, though the former already looks spot on. My only que...

Captain Toad is Nintendo's best new protagonist

My goodness, this website for Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker. Our little adventurer can perform such actions as "throw," "dig," and "tumble." I can't take it. Too much. There's a gallery with several new screenshots, including the best of t...

Four new super cute Spelunky toys are inbound

I never got around to buying some of those Spelunky Minis. Now's my chance. Starting tomorrow, Fangamer will have the two-inch PVC figurines back in stock. And there are four new Minis to collect: Yeti King, Old Bitey, Alien Lord, and Anubi...

 
 
Do want photo

Alright, I need this Gravity Rush figure in my life

I don't like stuff. Maybe living lean is a product of smaller San Francisco living arrangements, maybe it's a product of semi-frequent moves, but I don't like to own a lot of things. Figures have almost always fallen into this category. Eve...

Heart Forth, Alicia is the best Kickstarter I've seen in ages

There's been a resurgence of Metroidvania games in recent years thanks to crowdfunding but not all of them have lived up to our lofty ambitions for the genre. Many haven't. As such, I hope you're not so skeptical as to avoid giving Heart F...

The Iconoclasts returns to show off a cool boss fight

It's been some time since we last had a chance to talk about The Iconoclasts, Joakim "Konjak" Sandberg's long-in-development, amazing-looking action-adventure game. Today he shared a video of a boss fight which shows good things come to th...
