Some details were revealed on Tuesday in regards to the upcoming Super Nintendo World theme park from Universal Studios Japan.

The New Avengers Game Gets Leaked

So we have finally been graced with the footage from the looooooong awaited Avengers game from Square Enix. Granted, it’s leaked footage from SDCC which wasn’t supposed to be public until after Gamescom.

The game looks like it’s going to be…

Cuphead Gets His Own Show

Cuphead is going to Netflix in the form of the Cuphead Show!

And why wouldn’t it? In fact, I would think they’d kill two birds if game production coincided with the show. And imagine the in-game events that they could have with a show running alongside the game.

Netflix could go a step…

Dr. Mario Returns In July

At first I was excited. A new Dr. Mario! One of the best Tetris clones ever made is coming to mobile!

Then I realized that this is not Dr. Mario. Not the one I know and love.…

More importantly we get some great gameplay footage and a release date!

This game…

Skull and Bones Delayed

It’s never good news when a game is delayed. Even if it IS for good reasons.

In a recent tweet, the game devs declared their mission of quality as the reason for delay.…

Sonic The Hedgehog Trailer Anyone?

It’s finally here and I like it.

Sure Jim Carrey “stole the show”, but that little blue fuzzball actually looks better animated and his size comparison to humans is perfect.

We will obviously be keeping you updated on…

The New Trailer For DC's Joker

Well here it is. The newest DC flick. I ask myself how a movie can be made about a comic book villain without the hero. DC answers with "make the villain a..good...guy?"

Ok, maybe not "good", but definitely misunderstood and pitiful. 

This seems to be how it worked with the Suicide Squad. Make the audience think that the…

Turtle Rock Announces A Left 4 Dead Successor

Turtle Rock Studios has announced that they are going back to what “made them” and are going to give us a “spiritual successor” to Left 4 Dead. It’s not Left 4 Dead 3, it is a brand new IP. Valve owns Left 4 Dead.

This game is called Back 4 Blood.…

Overwatch May Be Going Free To Play

Game Industry analyst Michael Pachter from Wedbush Securities has made some dead on predictions, and some not so. However this year he has predicted something that kind of scares me...

Overwatch going free to play.…

Nintendo's Exclusive Consolation Marvel Game

It started out exciting. A new Marvel game!

But then I realized that the graphics looked "meh". There is no way that THIS was a product of Square Enix. 

The reason is that it's not.

It's actually published by Nintendo themselves and developed by Team Ninja (Ninja Gaiden series, Dead or Alive series).

The game…

Playstation Classic Gets A Complete Game Reveal

Sony has finally given us a full games list of what to expect on their upcoming Playstation Classic. 

It's launching on December 3rd and is priced at $100. I'm not quite sure that it's really worth it, especially with my stance on "retro" being pre-CD games. 

Here is the full list:

Grand Theft Auto

Battle Arena Toshinden …

Another "Mini" Console Is Coming

PlayStation has surprisingly entered the retro gaming console arena with the PlayStation Classic. 

As expected, it's quite smaller than the original and is fueled by emulation. 

It will come with 20 games, 5 of which they've already announced. 

- Final Fantasy 7

- Jumping Flash

- Ridge Racer Type 4

- Tekken 3

- Wild Arms

Now, I grew up with the PlayStation and can say that I'm not excited about the games…

Last Week's SNK Tease Has Been Revealed

It's a new Samurai Showdown game. Samurai Spirits is what the series is called in Japan, and it seems this may be a reboot of sorts with them just not using the "Showdown". 

It's been ages since we've seen a new Samurai Showdown game and this one looks fantastic.

Fortnite FINALLY Adds What Everyone Has Been Waiting For

In an effort to continue their close relationship with fans, Fortnite has added a feature that was actually a "meme" petition made to mock the actual desire to have it. 

That petition was to add the ability to thank the bus driver.

You know, the person who essentially delivers 99 people to their deaths.

Who. The hell. Cares.

That's like thanking the revolver in a game of Russian Roulette.

I'm sure that there are plenty of other…

First Impressions: World War 3

I just heard about World War 3 today, after seeing that they released a "pre gamescon" gameplay video. 

Here it is: 

Just a few things to say. 

First, holy rip off. I understand that many FPS's take from each other, but c'mon. How long before a lawsuit on this?

That aside, it looks like Battlefield 3 without…

New Indie Games Indicate It's Time To Get A Nintendo Switch

A number of indie games have been revealed for the Nintendo Switch and it's pretty impressive. 

Keep in mind, I'm not a big fan of most indie titles, and I'm even less of a fan of the Nintendo Switch.

The highlight video below has changed my mind. Yeah, you'll notice a common genre of many of the titles, but it doesn't matter. There are some great looking games coming and it's actually refreshing. 

Watch the video and listen to this week's podcast, or…

The Next Labo Kit Is The Best Yet

Nintendo Labo is the cardboard craze that lets you build peripherals for your Switch. So far, you can build a robot suit, or a number of little contraptions like a remote control, piano, and fishing pole depending on the kit you buy. 

And now, Nintendo has upped their game and is releasing a new Labo Kit. Vehicles. 

I gotta say, this…

Kabounce Is Free This Weekend..But What Is It?

Here's a game that wasn't on my radar at all. It's called Kabounce and it's pitched as "multiplayer pinball". 

It looks like it works in a "Splatoon-esque" way. Color the arena in your own color while attacking the other balls. 

"Compete head to head in 4 versus 4 multiplayer pinball arena.…
