Wii U owners should beware the Super Smash Bros. Mewtwo glitch (update)

Mewtwo is in Super Smash Bros. now, and it’s super exciting. However, it’s also a little tragic, because it isn’t all sunshine in this mashup’s realm. It turns out the new DLC brought with it a Mewtwo glitch. 3DS owners can go do something else, because this is for the eyes of ones with Wii more »

Today saw Mewtwo touch down in the land of the Super Smash Bros. roster, along with some Mii costumes or whatever. With the iconic final boss of the original Pokemon came a software update, and we all know people can’t help but mine the hell out of every line of code in the new data. more »

Mortal Kombat X is broken on Steam and lets you buy ‘Easy Fatalities’

The PC version of Mortal Kombat X, available via Steam, is currently suffering widespread unplayability due to data issues brought on by a bizarre installation process. While most Steam games install in full, Mortal Kombat X begins with a 3GB pre-load.

The Mortal Kombat X trailers aren’t really impressive

Now, I’ll be the first to admit that fighting games have never really been my jam. I’m not really good at them. In addition, I haven’t played a Mortal Kombat game in years. So it’s entirely possible that I’m simply not the target audience when it comes to Mortal Kombat X. I’m fully willing to more »

Eevee should be the next Pokemon added to Super Smash Bros.

I know we’re getting Pokken Fighters, an official Pokemon brawler. Also, that the Super Smash Bros. roster is already full up with various Pokemon.

Nintendo mocks our Mother 3 pain with Lucas in Super Smash Bros.

Let’s not put too fine a point on things. Nintendo hates us and wants to laugh at our pain. At last, this is the only logical conclusion I can come up with after watching the Nintendo Direct video yesterday. See, in that video, they introduced two new Super Smash Brothers fighters. While neither of them more »
