Important Importables: Fire Emblem’s Roy is our boy

Now that the Super Smash Bros. Smash Bros. Fighters Ballot is open, we’ve begun hearing rumblings over which characters do and don’t deserve to be back in the game.

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 »

There are new, transparent 2DS models thanks to Pokemon

We all know about Pokemon Alpha Sapphire, and Omega Ruby right? We’re all on the same page there? We also know that Nintendo has gone crazy with special 2DS releases right?

8 Sites with “good” Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles media

Know what’s out in theaters today? That new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot. (Yuck!) I think I speak for the majority of the internet when I say no thank you. That’s okay. We do not want this. Really. Which is why I propose we spend the day enjoying good, classic, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles media more »

Video Games Made Me into a Man

Yeah, okay, that headline is eye catching nonsense. Now of course, the idea that video games can somehow make a person into a “man” is ridiculous. I’ve been male since birth (or as long as I can remember anyway) and to think that something can imbue me with the spirit of masculinity is absurd. What more »

These are your first GBA Virtual Console games

Twitch Plays Pokemon Emerald now

Well, Twitch Plays Pokemon sure isn’t some one-off event now. Initially, it seemed like it could have been. Twitch Plays Pokemon Red was the first experiment, and a wildly successful one at that. Which was fun and all. So when it moved on to Pokemon Crystal immediately after, it seemed like a logical step. The more »

The FAA says it’s safe to use your electronics during an entire flight

Many of us have been in a situation when we had to remind ourselves to turn off all our electronic devices while on an airplane. It’s just one of those rules that didn’t make a whole lot of sense in this day and age. The Federal Aviation Administration had been looking to relax those rules, more »


Open question to Pokemon fans: Why are 2 versions ok?

I recently wrote about how I don’t have any interest in playing . Well in that article I mentioned something that I felt deserves some more attention on it’s own, something that I don’t quite understand. I thought I would simply ask the Pokemon playing fan base. An open question so to speak to all more »

Moemon Pokemon hacks are adorably weird

Pokemon rom hacks are nothing new, but I have to say, I’ve never seen anything like Moemon before. Let me explain. Sometimes, fans will decide to modify existing games to change the experience. I’ve heard of patches for the Pokemon Game Boy Advance games that alter the difficulty level, change the story, switch up the more »
