Review: Pac-Man Championship Edition 2

Bandai Namco has done such a wonderful job revitalizing Pac-Man. It's gotten to the point where even if you weren't all that into the original decades-old game, you're still liable to succumb to Pac-Man fever. The Championship Edition serie...

Pop some pellets with Pac-Man's dog

I've seen a lot of live-action versions of classic video games before, but rarely have I seen one as adorable as this. A new YouTube series called Animal Arcade posted its first video today, and well, I don't want to spoil it for you.  ...

Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 drops September 13

Bandai Namco has earned enough goodwill with Pac-Man Championship Edition and its follow-ups that I was wholeheartedly down for the sequel coming into the announcement trailer. What a game! For the sequel, the ghost trains are back alongsi...

Pac-Man 256 is coming to consoles and PC with multiplayer

I missed Hipster Whale's Pac-Man 256 on mobile, but an upgraded port with four-player local co-op and the ability to play with a gamepad by default sounds pretty good, actually. Publisher Bandai Namco is releasing the game on PlayStation 4...

These Funko Pac-Man figures are distressing

The hell is up with Ms. Pac-man here? Why is Pac-Man all square? These Funko figures of the classic pill popping arcade icons are up to their knees in the uncanny valley and I don't appreciate it one bit. Personally, I've never understood w...

Pac-Man 256, from the developers of Crossy Road, is out now

Developer Hipster Whale hit it big with Crossy Road, and for good reason -- it's a fantastic little mobile game. Now they're back with Pac-Man 256, which sees the iconic character in an endless runner format, wacka-ing his way to the top of...

Pac-Man 256 turns infamous glitch into gameplay

Namco has finally managed to do something with Pac-Man that is not hopelessly sad. Here's an extended look at Hipster Whale's (Crossy Road) Pac-Man 256 out of gamescom. It's coming this summer to iPhone, iPad, Google Play and Amazon. The ...

Pac-Man wants to eat your diapers

Pac-Man reminds me of a child actor whose star burned too bright. Much like that cute kid from that one movie, Pac-Man fell on hard times after his crippling meth addiction landed him in rehab. Nowadays, the poor guy can been seen eating ou...

Wow, I CANNOT believe Namco's Pac-Man redesign

I've been seeing this (above) and similar images all over the 'net and I am stunned that Namco would choose to redesign an iconic character like Pac-Man so dramatically. I mean, the arms and legs in all those earlier 3D Pac-Man adventures w...

Namco's Pac-Man 35th anniversary celebration is just sad

On this day in 1980, Pac-Man debuted in Japanese arcades. Now, publisher Bandai Namco has decided to celebrate the arcade classic's 35th anniversary in the most depressing way possible. The company has passed along a note announcing the exi...

Google Maps is now a giant game of Pac-Man

I like when companies channel their April Fools' Day creativity into something real as opposed to just announcing a phony product or service that really ought to exist. This year, Google has another fun interactive gag for us with a playabl...

BRRUUAAAPPHH!

It's probably the 12-year-old in me that digs this new commercial for PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures 2. Burping with force waves? Cool. Sound effect stand-ins for farts? Love it. The scream-y Ask Ketchum/Naruto voice over narrator? Top...

Pac-Man being in the new Super Smash Bros. is pretty wild, but apparently it's been a long time coming. In his column in Weekly Famitsu, series creator Masahiro Sakurai explained that Miyamoto wanted the world's most famous pizza ...

This SDCC Pac-Man figure is the stuff of nightmares

If our attempts at Sonic fanfiction aren't enough to give you nightmares, then perhaps this bizarre Pac-Man figure complete with a segmented tongue can act as today's fuel for the most unsettling sleep of your life. Available for purchase a...
