At least AdWatch Tournament Edition is honest

We’ve come to “that point” as an internet dwelling society. There is now a “game” where all a “player” does is mindlessly press a button to watch 10-20 second ads. It’s called AdWatch Tournament Edition, which means at least there’s no false advertising. Just lots of tongue-in-cheek references! The “goal” of AdWatch Tournament Edition is more »

Free Shovel Night expansion coming in a few months

Remember the game Shovel Knight? Remember how it was probably the best retro platformer released last year, and possibly in the past five years? Remember how it was really great, but it was a little short? Remember how the developers promised that they would be releasing more shoveling goodness if everyone would just be patient? more »

March PlayStation Plus games slightly delayed (update)

The March PlayStation Plus games still aren’t here yet. This is worrying for a rather good reason. The PlayStation Plus games are usually announced the last week of the previous month. Then, they’re placed in rotation the first Tuesday of the new month. By this reasoning, we should have known about the March PlayStation Plus more »

More Captain Falcon, Little Mac, and Villager Amiibo coming to Japan

Some Amiibo are ridiculously rare. The first cluster is known as the Holy Trinity, and consists of the Wii Fit Trainer, Marth, and Villager Amiibos. The next three were Captain Falcon, Pit, and Little Mac. With each wave, more and more of these NFC figures have become harder to find. However, there’s a light at more »

Chibis are the perfect fit for Hyperdevotion Noire

The Hyperdimension Neptunia series and its spin-offs take place in a fanciful world where everything you love about video games is a reality.

Marth Amiibo will reappear in April

Here’s something that will bring joy to every hardened Amiibo hunter. We have a definite release window on the Marth Amiibo relaunch.

However, the company didn’t more »

Someone combined Five Nights at Freddy’s and Minecraft

Do you know one of my favorite time killers? Bringing up iTunes on my iPhone or Google Play on my tablet and seeing how many ridiculous, rip-off games managed to find their way onto the app stores. It’s great, because the collective of clones is continually collecting in an unending crescendo. (Sorry, I’ll quit it more »

Somebody made a Mega Man Amiibo with LED blaster

I’ve been hesitant to talk about Amiibo mods. Mainly, because there are just so many, and it doesn’t seem fair to call attention to one if you can’t highlight them all. However, a recent Mega Man Amiibo has changed everything. My mind, Amiibo expectations, and perhaps even the modding scene. A Reddit user by the more »
