Several rumors about Nintendo releasing their first mobile game have been circulating over the last two years ago. But, it was only recently that they broke their silence regarding their game app project with video game developer DeNA.
What should we expect from the first Nintendo-licensed mobile game? Should we expect the company’s famous titles to be ported to smartphones? (more…)
Just when you thought LEGO Dimensions couldn’t get any better, it just did. If you’re unfamiliar with LD, it is a new upcoming game peripheral in the same style of Disney Infinity and Skylanders, with a unique docking station and an assortment of figurines that allow you to play different worlds and areas of the game. Only LEGO Dimension is better because the base and figures are LEGO pieces that you build. Oh, and the not so little premise of featuring pop culture characters from various genres like Back to The Future, Batman, Lord of The Rings, and Doctor Who. You can also take any character into any world. Yes! In your face Disney Infinity!
Still not convinced? Well there’s another game expansion that should interest you. At least if bustin’ Ghosts makes you feel good, that is. (more…)
There is no scenario where Star Wars fans need any more reasons to be excited to play the newest game, Star Wars Battlefront, upon its release onNovember 17. It’s a beautiful, exciting take on combat in the Star Wars universe. Have a pulse? Like things? This game is probably for you. However, EA hasn’t been simply sitting on its hands and waiting to cash in on the hype, as they’ve announced an exciting new mode at Gamescom that will put players in the cockpits of iconic Star Wars crafts, most significantly the mighty millennium falcon! We’ve got the details for you right here, loyal nerds.
Let’s start with this kickass trailer. Have a clean pair of pants handy. (more…)
If you are familiar with the Fallout games then you already know the shear joy of wandering the wastelands and exploring. Spending endless hours tooling around the post-apocalypse gathering bobby pins and teddy bears and running across the odd TARDIS here and there or a nuked fridge complete with fedora wearing archaeologist (what’s left of him at least.)
When Bethesda rolled out the latest in the series, Fallout 4, at E3 this year we were treated to more than a few videos showing off what awaits in what is left of Boston. I am sure the game will have a story about saving something or someone and probably a whole wack of quests about just that, but don’t let those distract you from what you are really there to do. The true meaning of the game will be finding the burnt out husk of a bar with a skeleton in a postal uniform and a particular rotund feral goul and finding out if they do know your name.
Anyway, wanna see 5 minutes of Fallout 4 exploration footage? (more…)
We’re riding a high from a great Comic-Con, and we’re upset that we have to report such a sad occurrence, but that’s the name of the game. Though we’ve known the President of Nintendo had been suffering health problems, this comes as a bit of a surprise nonetheless. At 55, Satoru Iwata has passed away.
Comic Con has games? Clearly you’re new here, but yes, there is a strong video game presence at San Diego Comic Con, and like all things in movies, comics and TV, SDCC marks a pretty big date on the calender for video game companies looking to get some promo for their new products. To wit, let’s talk LEGO. We all love LEGO, it, and everything about it, is awesome! But are you looking for something new in gaming that can tie together all your favorite licensed LEGO characters, characters created for The LEGO Movie, and Doctor Who? Good news, because here’s the trailer for the new LEGO Dimensions game. (more…)
Batgirl versus The Joker – who will win? Well, sad trombone, we already know that story so why not focus on something entirely new? Batgirl: A Matter of Family is an all new downloadable content (DLC) game for the recent Rocksteady Studios release, Batman: Arkham Knight. Time to buy another pallet of energy drinks from Costco nerds, this one’s gonna be a doozy! First look at the trailer after the jump! (more…)
With the failure of the Wii U in their minds, Nintendo has begun work on a lot of projects to move the company forward. Most notable of those is the partnership with DeNA to develop mobile games of their famous IPs, a move that has upset a number of the Nintendo faithful. To stifle fears that they’re abandoning the home console business, top Nintendog Satoru Iwata immediately announced that work on their next dedicated platform, the NX, is well underway, promising some concrete details at some point in 2016. A lack of information is always frustrating, but we have gotten our nerdy little hands on some production information, courtesy of DigiTimes, that could shed some light on their release plans.

Ubisoft is bringing back one of last years SDCC 2014 most popular event locations, the Assassin’s Creed Experience. Think Ninja Warrior and you’ve got the idea. This year’s course has a very British air as it will help promote Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, due out later this year. This course has all the fun Parkour type action you’d find in the game including the iconic Leap of Faith. Of course this year you’ll leap right off Big Ben! (more…)
Nintendo’s NX is the next big thing on their table and is billed to be a brand-new concept that will “transform gamer’s lives” when it launches. Sounds a little similar to what was being said when the Nintendo Revolution had yet to become the Wii, so I’m more than a little skeptical about their intentions. Still, it’s going to be their next dedicated gaming platform and, if they’ve learned anything in the last couple hardware cycles, will be a powerful machine capable of running the most modern engines. To demonstrate what that could mean for Nintendo’s most famous property, one crafty YouTuber put together this absolutely stunning video. (more…)
