This is going to be a bit of an unusual review: since I’m reviewing an art application for the Nintendo 3DS, I decided to put the app to good use and create the majority of the review in the app. What you see has not been altered in any way outside the app, so you’re getting a decent representation of its use. Because of the nature of the review, I’ve provided some extra screenshots of the app itself afterwards (obviously, official screenshot artwork isn’t mine!) Enjoy! Continue Reading →
Bayonetta, the insane, leggy witch with more attitude than a high school full of sassy teens, is back. With more sass. More insanity. And more leg (probably). The first game (reviewed here) was a cornucopia of bullets and blood, and this time, Bayonetta 2 promises more of the same, just with …well…more. I grab my guns and go to hell to bring you this review. Continue Reading →
Creep is sometimes best served in short bites, and the Internet has never failed to deliver some amazing short scares. Here’s 10 that you might find at least a little bit unsettling, especially when read alone at 2 am… Continue Reading →
Part of the ritual of growing up is watching horror movies together as a group of teenagers. The shared experience mitigates the fright somewhat, and makes it more tolerable. Some of those films you can even watch when you’re alone. And then there are some films that you really shouldn’t watch when you’re alone. Especially if you’re of a nervous bent. In which case, why are you watching scary movies alone, again? Get the popcorn, and I’ll run down some creepy films you have to rope others into watching with you (in no particular order–randomness can be just as creepy as the expected scares). Obviously, fright is a subjective term; some might find this list a little tame, others a “keep away” notice. If you’ve seen these, or have other recommendations, let us know in the comments below! The list after the jump-scare. Continue Reading →
Teslagrad is one of the latest in a wave of beautifully illustrated, beautifully programmed indie 2D games that we lucky gamers have a chance to experience. The game has seen some success on the PC, and now we have the Wii U version. I take the power into my own hands to see how electrifying the game can be.
[Update: Word from the developers (see comment below) is that Wii U Pro Controller support is coming in a patch, so that's something to look out for!] Continue Reading →
So, it being October, the month of Halloween and haunting and horror and other things that begin with “h”, we think it’d be good to get you into the mood by posting some creepy videos and stories from around the web. And by “web”, we probably mean “YouTube”. Nothing better than a nice, creepy video, right?
So without ado (or context), here’s your first vid, and we’re keeping it low for the initial scares. A creepy ghost girl.
Possibly probably faked, but still effectively mildly creepy.
Of all the highly anticipated titles this year, Super Smash Bros. has got to be somewhere near the top of the list. For the uninitiated, it’s a sprawling beat-em-up featuring a host of Nintendo’s greatest and toughest characters (and a few borrowed from …here and there, amongst other places). It’s a fabulous roster of fighting, and the 3DS version is upon us. I put on my fighting words and take the knocks to bring you this *knockout* review.
Level 5 are known for some of the most amazing JRPGs ever created, and the new Fantasy Life for the Nintendo 3DS is no different. Read on, and I’ll take you on a journey that you’re going to not want to end.
The US Postal Service honours the “quintessential American superhero” in a special edition run of stamps. It’s Batman’s 75th Anniversary this year and the set of stamps show the Caped Crusader’s iconic identity through the Golden, Silver, Bronze, and Modern ages of the American comic book.
Check out the Batman-themed stamps after the jump.
Lifted from her upcoming album, Aretha Franklin Sings The Great Diva Classics, the 72-year-old soul hits singer covers one of Adele’s chart-topping tunes, Rolling in the Deep. It’s a wonderful rendition, with an added chorus line from “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.” Have a listen to it below.
