Super Smash Flash 2 – Release Date and Updates Coming to You Directly

I really can’t believe that Super Smash Flash is still a thing, but I guess if you can’t wait for Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U this is the next best thing. Not only that, but it has a bunch of characters we know would never make it in to Smash Bros officially, …

Pigeons, Heroes, Islands, and Aliens – Nintendo Games Seminar Showcase 2013

Every year Nintendo takes groups of Japanese students and teaches them how to develop for Nintendo platforms. Then those students create some games and they are showcased. This year, these four games are available for free via the eShop in Japan, but seeing as they are student games I kind of doubt they’ll ever get …

Design Club: “Super Mario Bros. Level 1-1 – Game Analysis” or Why Super Mario Bros. is Brilliant

An excellent analysis of World 1-1 from Super Mario Bros. It truly is a shining example of what some modern game designers can only hope to achieve. While I will always advocate teaching players the controls of the game (they are your basic tools for interacting and we are no longer in an age where …

Hover: Revolt of Gamers – Mirror’s Edge Meets Jet Set Radio With a Dash of Tony Hawk

So this is game that has completely slipped my radar, but I’m glad I found it before their Kickstarter runs out.   So, I am a big fan of the Tony Hawk Pro Skater games and I liked Jet Set Radio. Throw in some Mirror’s Edge (which I thought was okay, but not great) and …

Hyper Dragon Ball Z – A Fantastic Looking 2D Dragon Ball Z Fighting Game

Hopefully, this doesn’t get shut down as well. Well I’m not sure if there has ever been a competitive 2D DBZ Fighting game before, I can definitely see why. Moving around in 3D space in huge arenas just feels more like a Dragon Ball Z fight. That’s not to undermine the amazing work done with …

Prodigy – A Collectible Game That Brings Your Figurines to Life

So this game…looks freakin’ cool. White I’m not particularly a fan of the Skylanders/Disney Infinity style of buy toys and put them into the game world, this though feels like it’s worth it. I love collectible card games, especially ones that give lots of room for the player to personalize their deck or whatever the …

What Happened Yesterday – Flappy Bird Clones

Flappy Bird clones probably shouldn’t get anyone riled up nowadays, but when Sega and Blizzard do it? It’s a little funny but also something I didn’t expect so kudos to them.

VR and AR Combined with Sulon’s Cortex

Last week at GDC I got a chance to try out the Oculus Rift for the very first time and it was amazing. There’s this rush you get when playing with it and after the short demonstration I was more than ever convinced that there will be one in everyone’s homes at one point. However, …

Hex Heroes – A Party RTS (Or Par-Tee-Ess If You Will)

If you own a Wii U, please back this game. This is the kind of co-op asymmetrical play that I think is awesome and despite being absolutely perfect for it it’s the kind of gameplay that is still lacking on the Wii U. At least as a  core feature and even then I’ve rarely seen …

Extra Credit’s Games You Might Not Have Played – Cyberpunk Edition

Another round of Extra Credits doing their incredibly helpful “Games You Might Not Have Tried”.   I have learned that Cyberpunk is a genre that I like, because I think Deus Ex and other pop culture-ish cyber punk is really cool, but I’ve never delved deeper than that. I’ll probably try out some of the …

My Little Pony: Fighting is Magic Tribute Edition – A Once Dead Fan-Game, Brought Back to Life

I’d never thought I would see the day where the world would finally have My Little Pony: Fighting is Magic.   This fan-made fighting game, spearheaded by fans of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, received a cease and desist order from Hasbro. While this is par the course for most fan-related projects, as fans …

Year Walk is Coming to Steam

Year Walk is making it’s way to Steam and if you don’t already have it, I highly recommend it.   Year Walk is one of those games that just does so much right. Not everything, but a lot. It has that old school sense of adventure where you must explore and try everything. It knows …

120+ Indie Games Being Released on Wii U

So between Deus Ex: Human Revolution, The Wonderful 101, Wind Waker HD, and Super Mario 3D World…I’m kind of been backlogged on my Wii U games for a while now. Then this article from Nintendo Enthusiast dropped with 120+ Indie games being released and I’m like “well, there goes all my free time forever.” Now, …

Fru – A Game Where Your Shadow Reveals Secrets

Here is an interesting game that was made last weekend during the Global Game Jam. I think one of the biggest problems with the mainstream Kinect games is that the people developing the games have no imagination on how to use the device. They approach it not as a very advance camera but as a …

IGN: 13 Horror Games You Must Play in 2014

Isn’t it almost Valentine’s Day? The day for being with the one you love? Why are all these horror games just on the horizon then? Oh well, doesn’t matter because some of these look really cool. Personally, I’m looking forward to Alien: Isolation.   While these horror games are looking pretty interesting, I think the …
