Namco has made another Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures

Coming to PS3, 360, Wii U, and 3DS this fall, a sequel to "an emotionless venture that's devoid of any soul or effort." I guess Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures, which is based on the new Pac-Man television series, did well enough to war...

Review: Pac-Man Museum

Let's not beat around the bush here -- with the new Pac-Man Museum compilation, you're getting a bunch of really old games you've most likely played before, a few you probably already own, and Pac-Man Battle Royale. Royale is...

Pac-Man Museum out today for PSN, XBLA, and Steam

Pac-Man Museum, released today on Steam, PlayStation Network, and Xbox Live Arcade, caught my eye this morning. It was my first time hearing about the game and the $19.99 price stood out. What could a compilation like this possibly include ...

So the new Rabbids cartoon premiered today

Today, Nickelodeon launched the latest show on its Saturday morning lineup: Rabbids Invasion. Teased about for years, the new program is about... the Rabbids, and they do... things. Ummmm... yeah, that's basically the gist of it. I happene...

Belch out eyeballs of your foes in latest Pac-Man game

We covered the newly-announced Pac-Man game at E3, and while Brett's assessment wasn't positive, I was shocked most by the belch that Pac-Man lets loose at the end of each stage, from which the eyeballs of his consumed ghostly foes spew for...

Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures will make you sad

"I think we have a demographic for it," I was told by a Namco Bandai PR rep. Let me back up -- mere moments earlier, he asked what I thought of Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures; I returned his questioning with nothing more than a five-se...

Pac-Man, the cocky, pinstripe suit-wearing noir hero

A hyper-stylized version of Pac-Man that exaggerates the violence of the rather tame arcade original? Yeah, we've gone down that road before. "Goodnight Sweet Pakman" may be no different in that regard, but I can't stop watching the openin...

Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures is what it sounds like

What makes a Pac-Man game a Pac-Man game? Perhaps I'm overthinking this. Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures puts the iconic character in a story built off the animated television series of the same name, which makes a lot of sense having n...

Retro game Post-It stop-motion animation is rad

We've seen Post-It Note stop-motion animation before, but none quite so clean as the above video that reportedly took eleven months and 4,800 Post-Its to make. The stillness of the shots and the transitions between different backgrounds ar...

Even more 'Game Overs' in storybook rhyme

Confused? It's not 'Pac-Man,' it's 'Not Pacman'

Let the headline swirl in your head a bit, then come back. Indie studio Stabyourself.net has a knack for recreating classic 80s games pixel for pixel but with the application of modern physics for a wild new take on an old favorite. You mi...
