With LEGO Jurassic World on my mind, I had forgotten that TT Games also has LEGO Marvel's Avengers lined up for this year. It's not releasing until winter, but here's a trailer ahead of E3. Save for a split-second shot of Ultron at the end...   read

Oh yeah, Antipole is getting a DX remake this year

Many years back, Antipole was released on DSiWare, PC, and Xbox 360. It was a neat little platformer, featuring gravity shifts as its core mechanic. This year, it's set to come to both the 3DS and Wii U in the form of Antipole DX, a r...   read

Another trailer for the new 2D Dragon Ball Z fighter

Gosh, it was so hard to get more than a boring Goku on Vegeta still out of the new Arc System Works 3DS fighter for months. Then there was the meaty 8 minutes and cheese head lady. And now here's another commercial. Makes sense. It comes o...   read

Mighty No. 9 has a one-hit-death mode

A few Mighty No. 9 updates to talk about today. First, all launch-window versions of the game will come with the Retro Hero DLC, which gives protagonist Beck a blocky, weirdly Minecraft-esque appearance and, good lord, a one-hit-death diff...   read

Underrated DS horror jaunt Dementium: The War (here's a review by Colette from 2,000 and flippin' 7) is getting a 3DS remaster (the DS original is pictured above). It was originally pitched (and thoroughly rejected by Konami) as a Silent H...   read

Dragon Quest VIII is looking good on the 3DS

When it was first released on the PS2 in 2004, Dragon Quest VIII defiantly stood apart from the sea of pseudo-realistic, cut scene heavy RPGs and action games that largely populated the console at that time. It aspired to offer player...   read

Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer costs 4,000 Yen in Japan

When we first heard about Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, it was easy to look at it as a stop gap measure to satiate people's hunger for more of the series that would also work to cash in on the current amiibo craze. From the looks o...   read

Monster Hunter X looks to make the action fun for everyone

The Monster Hunter series remains huge in Japan, but it's still more of a cult hit everywhere else. The combat system probably has a lot to do with that. On the surface, it's pretty disempowering. Players are likely to feel punished and ab...   read
