The Mewtwo amiibo is up for pre-order now in the UK

Right now you can grab the Mewtwo amiibo off of Nintendo UK's official site for £10.99. The planned release date seems to be October 23, so you still have plenty of time to grab it, if the high volume of shipments of the last amiibo wave are anything to go by. Now that the Smash line is wrapping up, I see a lot of people getting off the amiibo train. Show More Summary

Rise of the Tomb Raider $30 Season Pass outed on Amazon

It seems as if every Season Pass these days is a mystery pass. That is to say -- you probably shouldn't buy it until you know what's in it. Having said that, Rise of the Tomb Raider is the next game in a long line of AAA titles to get one, and it'll cost you $30. Show More Summary

Guitar Hero Live left me afraid to ever try playing live music

Back in my mid teens I played drums in a hastily thrown together rock band. We mainly played pretty bad covers of other peoples song, occasionally writing our own tracks that went on far too long and were excessively simplistic. Still, we felt pretty damn cool. The idea of getting that band to play a show for an audience was always our driving force. Show More Summary

The new UK Consumer Rights Act guarantees digital refunds

The UK has some fairly decent consumer protection laws, compared to the nonsense I’ve heard happen in other countries. The only problem is that they could be fairly vague, and fighting for your rights often involved getting our heroShow More Summary

Someone's porting Pokemon Red to Minecraft

I built a house in Minecraft once. It was the sweetest house you’ve ever seen, and it made everyone who knew me jealous. Through careful architecture and planning, I carefully stacked dirt block on top of dirt block, until eventually...Show More Summary

Laura is Street Fighter V's newest challenger

Earlier today, Capcom confirmed that Zangief would be returning to Street Fighter V with the standard introduction video. Now it looks like Famitsu may have jumped the gun and unveiled a new character before Capcom was ready.

Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam uses 18 amiibo

Gosh, I keep forgetting about Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam. I've always been more of a Paper Mario man than a Mario & Luigi guy, but this fusion of the two RPG series showed promise at E3. They're both fun and funny on their own, and I hope...Show More Summary

Good defense, guys

Old, stodgy, wrong sports broadcasters like to yell that defense wins championships. If that's true, then this team is the 2008 Detroit Lions of Rocket League (for you non-sports folk, that means they're god-fucking-awful, which you could probably tell just from watching the GIF).

Zangief can't seem to keep his mouth closed

Review: LEGO Dimensions

As I've talked about in the past, I'm usually the go-to person for the toys-to-life genre. I'm a kid at heart, and occasionally, I can enjoy a silly kids movie for the fun of it. No series has encapsulated that silliness more than the...Show More Summary

Soar the island-filled skies of Worlds Adrift

Bossa Studios (Surgeon Simulator, I am Bread) is making an open-world MMO about building airships, flying them to floating islands, and screwing over others (probably). You interested? The developers were in town, so we sent Rey to take a look at that game, Worlds Adrift, and he put together this in-depth video with narration provided by designer Luke Williams. Read more...

Humble Monthly is like Loot Crate for PC games

Decisions, man. They suck. Everyone always wants you to be an adult and bathe and make judgment calls on important things. Like, just decide for me and everything will work out, probably. Humble's taking that approach with a new subscription service it calls Humble Monthly. Show More Summary

PlayStation boss: Bloodborne was too big of a risk for From Software to take alone

Bethesda opened pre-orders for the Fallout 4 Season Pass today, but hold up for a minute. We know it's $29.99, and that the game's first DLC is expected to roll out in 2016. We also know that there won't be platform-exclusive shenanigans. Show More Summary

NHL 16 pegs Anaheim Ducks as Stanley Cup champs

Today's Xbox One holiday bundle is really two bundles

Microsoft's double-dippin' in more ways than one today. For its fourth Xbox One holiday bundle, it has actually announced two different packages. That's more than we expected, but one of them is kind of a retread from earlier this week. The...Show More Summary
