Animal Crossing gets its PONPONPON on

Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer is almost here, but I'm not seeing much excitement for it. Maybe that's because it's a full priced game that looks to offer just a fraction of the features found in the previously released Animal C...

 
 
 
GTA Online photo

Rockstar made a TV ad just for GTA Online's Heists

Both the PC version of Grand Theft Auto V and GTA Online's Heists have been a contentious issue for fans of the franchise. Frankly, most people adopted an "I'll believe it when I see it" mentality, as no one was ever sure either would...

These Super Smash Bros. commercials are silly

I mean, yeah, what else would you expect? It's Super Smash Bros. Nintendo's television spots for the 3DS game feature the tagline "Settle it in Smash," which is a good fit for the series, admittedly, but I'm far more interested in that Doc...

 
 
 
 
Mario Kart 8 photo

These three Mario Kart 8 commercials are pretty awesome

Okay, Nintendo. This is more like it. I'm not sure what you were trying with the little girls and Tomodachi Life, but these Mario Kart 8 commercials are decidedly more entertaining and engaging for television, especially given their lack o...

 
 
Tomodachi Life photo

Apparently, Tomodachi Life is for little girls

Still not sure if you're going to pick up Tomodachi Life? That Nintendo Direct video really sold it to me, so I recommend you watch that if you need further convincing. Or do you prefer cringeworthy trailers for tweens? If that's more your...

inFamous: Second Son live-action trailer has a smarmy grin

Not that I inherently dislike live-action trailers -- Sony's have always been especially good, from the weird to the current Hollywood-level production trend -- but are we at a point with graphics that live-action commercials could complet...

 
 
Cute Titanfall video photo

Life would be great if we all had pet Titanfall mechs

Property damages claims galore. They'd be headache, but they'd get you money. Muggings would be down (and then way up when muggers got mechs). You'd have someone to let your dog out to pee while you're work. Plus you'd get to be an offbeat...

Senran Kagura Burst commercial likens it to pornography

If you still live at home with an edgy "No stupid people beyond this point" sign on your door and your mom still cleans your bedroom for you because you are a child, she might find your porn game, this unfunny commercial suggests, with bun...

Ryu destroys some poor guy's car in this Turkish ad

"Insurance? Insurance is for people that plan to lose," is essentially what this gentleman boldly and unfortunately tells a reporter, seconds before Ryu shows up and goes all bonus stage on his car. Should've went with Anadolu Sigorta, dud...

 
 
PS+ advertisement photo

This PS+ commercial is super neat, but makes me sad

How are yous guys enjoying your "next gen mulitplayer," eh? Buzzwords aside, it's nice to see Sony talking multiplayer with this PlayStation Plus TV spot. Of course, it would be nicer if it was expressly couch co-op, which is something con...

Play & Peace: PS4 Japanese promo

Xbox One commercial says it best, toots own horn

Lots of people have had nice things to say about the Xbox One. Microsoft would like to remind you of a few, because that's what advertisements do. It's mostly just the regular "this is the console that you need in your living room" stuff t...

This Xbox One ad is too immersive

Come on, Microsoft. Nothing about this new commercial for Xbox One looks anything less than miserable. I'm not going to play Ryse if it makes me feel like I got cut by a sword. The infliction of pain isn't something I want to experien...

 
 
PS Vita TV ad photo

First PlayStation Vita TV ad tugs at familial strings

PS Vita TV TV commercial. Hah. This ad isn't ground breaking, but it's really cute. I've always liked these sorts of technological retrospectives. Add in a cute family, swinging tunes, and a truckload of chihuahuas and I'm bound to crack a...

 
 
 
3DS holiday commercial photo

3DS holiday ad will make you wish you were a kid again

I've always been a fan of Nintendo's advertising, from Pokemon's link trading commercials to Wayne Brady rapping about Wii Party U -- it's always been spot on. Don't question my unironic love for Wayne Brady. I suppose it comes as no surpr...

Set to release next week in Japan, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII latest 15 second TV spot showcases a live-action version of the titular character. Albeit extremely brief, the model portraying Lightning, intermixed with the in-game...

Battlefield 4 AXE body spray commercial is ... uh huh ...

Hey kids, do you want to look at something stupid this morning? Look no further than this juicy slice of video idiocy, courtesy of Battlefield 4 and AXE's pore-closin' smell juice! Together, AXE and BF4 celebrate men and women working toge...

This is how Nintendo explains to parents what a 2DS is

Nintendo has released a new video introducing the Free World to its 2DS system, suggesting the company feels the need to elaborate on its previous advertisements for the portable. The short depicts young children and families playing these...

 
 
Nintendo 2DS photo

2DS commercial reminds you it has some pretty good games

This commercial for the 2DS gets straight to the point -- Nintendo has some solid titles for its handheld systems. Dropping heavy-hitting names like Pokemon X/Y, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, and Mario and Luigi: Dream Team, this ad seems to ...

PlayStation 4 commercial shows you the perfect day

This live-action PlayStation 4 commercial tries to describe the perfect day, but none of it seems too appealing outside the realm of videogames. I don't want to take an ax to the chest, flip a car, or get blown apart by a futuristic laser ...
