The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth's New 3DS Patch is Now Being Tested by Nintendo

It's still coming, as is our review

The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth has arrived on Wii U in North America and is rather good, but the New Nintendo 3DS-exclusive version has encountered issues. A range of initial bugs were patched out rather quickly, but that update seemed to trigger an issue that freezes the game entirely in some cases. The

You Can Turn Boss Weapons Against Their Owners In Mega Man Legacy Collection's Challenge Mode

Give them a taste of their own medicine

Mega Man Legacy Collection will contain plenty of goodies, and one of the most appealing is the challenge mode which features speed runs, remixes and a boss rush element. That's right, you can fight the characters who are arguably the stars of each title, and even use their own weapons against them -...

Enter a Crazy Code to Unlock a New Character in the Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden Demo

Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Vegeta, apparently

Update: Thanks to the comments and a quick web search this demo is actually available in North America, somewhat negating our first line below. While it was promoted and given a 'shelf' in Europe, its release in NA has been rather stealthy - apparently a search for the name or a rummage through the...

Picross e6 (3DS eShop)

Continued conundrums

The Picross e series seems to have settled in its ways now, not choosing to add any more additional features and simply having new sets of puzzles with each release. Picross e6 is no exception, once again playing it very safe and just giving you more pictures to unveil. Again, the three available modes are Picross, Micross and...

Review: Swords & Darkness (3DS eShop)

Swords & Darkness (3DS eShop)

Alone in the darkness

Side-scrolling hack and slash games fall into a tricky genre. It's such a simple concept at its core, but it can easily be ruined by something as basic as poor controls or lack of originality. Swords & Darkness, the latest in the genre to make its way to the 3DS eShop, is an unfortunate example of what happens when little...

Mega Man And Mighty No. 9 Creator Keiji Inafune Admits He Doesn't Make Games That He Can Play

"My staff, though, are really good"

Keiji Inafune is responsible for some of the most joypad-crushingly difficult games of the 8-bit era, with the Mega Man series being considered the ultimate test of skill by many Nintendo players.

Mighty No. 9 Producer Shares Regret Over Delay, and Clarifies the Reasoning Behind RED Ash Campaign

"We are upset as well, just as much as the backers"

As we suggested in our article regarding Mighty No. 9's delay into early 2016, Comcept has endured a tough and damaging period for its image with fans. After the giddy highs of the game's successful Kickstarter campaign in 2013, multiple delays and some poor communication / decision making around...

Three Reasons Why You Should Be Pumped For Shovel Knight's Plague Of Shadows Expansion 

Straight from the developer

Shovel Knight may no longer be a Nintendo console exclusive, but the game is still one of our personal favourites on the 3DS and Wii U eShops - and it's about to get even better thanks to some free DLC. Showcasing the Plague Knight, Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows will be delivered entirely free of charge. In case you...

Review: Flick Golf 3D (3DS eShop)

Flick Golf 3D (3DS eShop)

Flicked from smartphones to the 3DS

Flick Golf 3D is yet another touch-based mobile game to receive a port onto Nintendo's handheld, having previously been launched in its original incarnation around five years ago on iOS. The title is both accurate and misleading at the same time; there's plenty of flicking to be had, but not too much golf. Flick...

Mercenaries Saga 2: Order Of The Silver Eagle (3DS eShop)

It’s just like Final Fantasy Tactics, but with a cheaper hairstylist

In a time where titles such as Project X Zone, Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. and the upcoming Fire Emblem Fates are renowned for spicing up the turn-based strategy genre, Mercenaries Saga 2: Order of the Silver Eagle opts for keeping the original recipe intact. The result is a game that...
