Wayne Brady will rip out your spine in MK X

Normally a celebrity event like this Mortal Kombat X launch tournament would be the sort of thing that makes my skin crawl. A slimy affair of glad-handing B-list celebrities on the downslope of their careers trying to appear relevant...Show More Summary

Friday Night Fights - Na Na Na Na Na, Batfleck!

How is no one hosting MKX? I have to admit, I'm pretty shocked. I'd be all over it, if my damn power supply hadn't died. Sons, I am disappoint. Unless you didn't want to feel the sting of WB's DLC though. That I understand. Focking wankers.... Besides that, anyone happen to see that leaked trailer for Batman Vs. Show More Summary

A baseball player playing games with a fat cat, so don't ask any questions

The San Francisco Giants' Matt Duffy isn't a proven baseball player. He had to fight through Spring Training for a spot on the club's 25-man roster. Still, I have shown in the past that I will do whatever's necessary to get cats on the front page of this site. So, here's infielder Duffy with his family's cat, Skeeter. Show More Summary

We got a first look at gameplay from the new Star Wars Battlefront

I have very fond memories of Star Wars Battlefront. Well into my adolescence, whole summer weekends were lost to split-screen tournaments; when you lost a game, you lost the controller. Familiar Star Wars iconography mixed with sprawling...Show More Summary

Supernova developers unsure on the decision to include a forfeit feature in their MOBA

Right now, there's a debate going on within the MOBA community regarding a forfeit feature. Currently, Dota 2 does not have any forfeit mechanic in place, among other titles like Heroes of the Storm, which Blizzard says "is so short, you don't need one."

The new retro: Japanese mystery Back In 1995 looks like a PS1 game

Ah, 1995. A good vintage.

Gosh, it was 20 years ago. Show More Summary

Nintendo's NPD sales report has lots of numbers

It doesn’t seem too long ago that Nintendo were struggling.

But the newest North American sales statistics released by Nintendo suggest they may be on the rise again. Show More Summary

The new iOS update killed Spiderweb Software's iPad Games for good

Spiderweb Software’s not having a good time as of late. No one really pays much attention to them most of the time, but the fact they still pump out very niche retro-style CRPGs after 20 years is a really nice thing. They’re one of the...Show More Summary
