Ever since 2014 it’s become an E3 tradition to watch the latest build of the playable 1930’s cartoon Cuphead. We figured the game was making its final appearance at the event last June, but it could still get one more in: developer Studio MDHR has announced Cuphead is being delayed at least nine months in […]

Paper Mario: Color Splash Was Accidentally Leaked By Nintendo Last Night

by Peter Paltridgeon September 23, 2016
Nintendo’s next Paper Mario game, subtitled Color Splash, isn’t due out for two weeks. Ordinarily we would have had to wait that long, but not today.

Nintendo’s European website recently added the Zelda: Breath of the Wild figures to their amiibo gallery, and included a release date: March 4, 2017.

by Peter Paltridgeon September 14, 2016
In March of 2013 a 25-year-old man named Jia Li ordered a laptop from Microsoft’s online store…and the store goofed up. One week later, he got a large package in the mail that didn’t contain a laptop. Instead it contained an XBox One….eight months before the console’s unveiling, and two months before the XBox One […]

Crash Bandicoot Turns 20 Today

by Peter Paltridgeon September 9, 2016
The original Crash Bandicoot was released for the Sony Playstation twenty years ago today, September 9, 1996. He’s not getting any younger and will resemble the “coot” portion of his name before too long. But it could have been different had his name remained “Willy the Wombat.” In 1994 Jason Rubin and Andy Gavin of […]
