There's a Gardevoir in this Pokken Tournament trailer

Sure, this general Pokkén Tournament trailer is a little less balls to the wall exciting than seeing Luchador Pikachu doing a Stone Cold Stunner, but, hey, there's some Gardevoir action going on, eh? The Bandai Namco-developed fight...   read

Yoshi's Woolly World is such a happy game

When a Mario level is named 'P is for Pain,' you're in trouble

We've got another diabolical Super Mario Maker level for you to marvel at and probably not play. I like this one not only for its name, "P is for Pain," but for its use of limited tools. It's designed almost entirely around P Switches and s...   read
