There’s a reason ‘shoryuken’ has both ‘Ryu’ and ‘Ken’ in it.
In celebration of Valentine’s Day, we though we’d share with you something we ran across a while back; something romantic for all you swoon-happy mongrels out there. Why don’t you kick back, grab a few chocolates out of that heart shaped box, and stuff them straight into your mouth-hole while you enjoy these classic video games reimagined as cheesy romance novel covers.
Today’s Nintendo Direct kicked off with a punch. It was like a kick-punch, though.
Little Mac, the undersized underdog from the Punch-Out series, was announced as a playable character in Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U.
For people like me who grew up with 007 373 5963 deeply ingrained into our very being, this is terrific news. Seeing as my friends would only play Super Smash Bros. Brawl with Assist Trophies turned off, this makes him pretty much all new for me.
Crap. Whatever you do, don’t let Anita Sarkeesian see this screen.
For those of you keeping score at home, this brings the current playable character count to 23, still a far cry from Super Smash Bros. Brawl’s 35 selectable characters. More names will be announced, surely, but Mega Man versus Little Mac is kind of a dream come true for me.
“The size of the fight in the dog” was kind of my mantra growing up.
Here’s a riddle: What takes 9 months to make and is more precious than life itself? No, not a baby. C’mon, man.
The correct answer, of course, is this ridiculously fantastic cross-stitch of Hyrule from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, arguably the series’ finest entry. This is the work of redditor tibtibs, who’s dedication to making awesome things is commendable.
Likely inundated by his sudden rise from obscurity to the top of the App Charts and the subsequent fame that comes with it, Vietnamese Flappy Bird developer Dong Nguyen is doing the only thing he can to get his life back to normal.
Dong Nguyen stated on his Twitter account, @dongatory, that he’ll be removing it from the App Store in 22 hours. That was 19 hours ago. So by my math, that means you’ve got something like um… airspeed velocity… obviously Mario World… carry the remainder… Tootsie Roll Tootsie Pop… one… two… three. Yes, you have three hours left. Thanks, Mister Owl!
When looking at Spell Quest – Grimm’s Journey, gamers will likely be divided into two primary groups: those who hate it because it’s basically Bookworm Adventures or those who love it because it’s basically Bookworm Adventures.
I’ve been sayingforyears that Bookworm Adventures would be a perfect fit for iPhone or iPad. That kind of gives away which grouping I fall into, doesn’t it?
PopCap had their chance. Now it’s time for the Bacon Bandits to shine.
