First released on November 18, 2012, the Wii U always had a difficult task to overcome. And while the console was deemed a failure since its inception, there was one thing Nintendo learned during the lifespan of its ill-fated console: The perfect marriage of music and gameplay.
Many have compared Mr. Shifty to another top-down action game that goes by the name of Hotline Miami. Let me be blunt right off the bat: Mr. Shifty is no Hotline Miami.

Twenty five years... woof! Tempus Fugit, eh? The SNES was released twenty five years ago a day like today. It took the world by storm with its flashy Mode-7 and 16-bit processor, but sadly no Blast Processing. Nevertheless, the sequel to the successful NES changed the Video Game industry forever...
At E3 2014 Shigeru Miyamoto was all giddy because he came up with three amazing ideas to showcase the Wii U’s true potential: some weird interplanetary space zoo/flying sim, Project Giant Robot and Project Guard.

It’s that time of the year again. Whether you like it or not Valentine’s Day is here to flood all your senses with love. Alone or together, I believe we all should recognize that love is a beautiful thing.
Winter is here but as some of you may have noticed, this has been quite the unusual winter. Temperatures have not been exactly what one would associate with the season and as a consequence the spirit of the season feels...off*.
Last night I took a trip to Despair,
Unaware of the events that were taking place
There I saw some shady guys trading wares.
Yo-kai Watch tells the story of Nate (or Katie) and the fateful summer afternoon when he stumbles upon a talking gashapon machine. Intrigued by the mysterious voice asking to be fed, Nate inserts a coin and cranks the machine. Yo-kai Watch also tells the story of how to dethrone Pokémon.
It’s Halloween! And you know what it means... go get your costumes, and your disgusting candy corn because it is time to sit in the dark and listen to spooky music from spooky and not-so spooky games.
On a day like this thirty years ago, the first Super Mario Bros. game was released for the Nintendo Famicom in Japan. Thirty years ago was the day the character formerly known as Jumpman became a super star and changed the video game scene forever.
The Pachinko Castlevania of course! Now showcasing the cast of characters, new gameplay features and a brief overview of the games that inspired this new entry.
When you hear about a game set in outer space, you think of fast action, shooting enemies, exploration and... a rogue-like? That’s the vision of the German developer ROCKFISH Games for their upcoming title EVERSPACE.
Last Thursday, Chad Moldenhauer of Studio MDHR dropped by ID@XBOX to do a live chat on Xbox’s Twitch Channel for his upcoming indie title Cuphead. He took a few questions from viewers during the stream, and I took the opportunity to do a follow-up from my interview regarding some concerns I had about the game.
One of the most exciting announcements during Microsoft’s E3 press conference was not how Halo 5 would reshape the FPS genre, nor how Forza 6 would bring 500+ cars to drool over. And it definitely was not the new $150 Xbox Elite Controller. No other title took my breath away more than the indie game Cuphead.
