Wait until you see Edgeworth

Japan's appetite for all things Ace Attorney continues, as Capcom and director Takashi Miike announce a joint project to bring the offbeat detective series to the silver screen.

We catch up with Alexis and Hank at the film's Brooklyn premiere

The saga over high scores in Donkey Kong is no longer a tale of two dudes. While most of us came to know the world of modern day Donkey Kongers through the epic rivalry between Steve Wiebe and Billy Mitchelll, it wasn't long before a third player emerged out of left field. Hank Chien, a plastic surgeon from New York, shattered both of..

Iwata: More Developers Interested in 3DS Than Were Into DS

Strong third-party support boasted again

3DS already has the support of major third-party publishers including Ubisoft, EA, Sega, Capcom and plenty more, but Satoru Iwata has spelled out the level of commitment from overseas companies, saying the console has more support than the DS did before launch.

Nintendo gives a round-up of classic moments

Some of these Super Mario Bros. glitches will be familiar to experienced gamers, but some might reveal hitherto unknown secrets about the little plumber's big adventure.

Super Mario Bros. Movie Re-released on DVD, Spot the Difference

Clue: it's not the quality of the film

Feel like your DVD collection is missing something, but you're not sure what? Here's the answer: the newly re-released Super Mario Bros. Movie, available once again in glorious DVD-o-vision. First released on DVD back in 2003, the disc contained no extra features so surely a re-release would sort that, particularly considering the abundance of archive..

Just as well, as it doesn't play DVDs

Manga to Release Professor Layton Film in the UK

Perhaps the Professor can crack the code for a good game movie

The only thing worse than a video game based on a movie is a movie based on a video game, right? Sure, some are so bad they're good, but in our opinion, there really hasn't been a true high-quality game-to-film adaptation to date. Perhaps, though, just perhaps, someone may have solved the cinematic adaptation puzzle. Professor Layton,..

Ghostbusters star almost ruined his career with unwanted live-action film

Castlevania Movie Bites The Dust

The Belmont's Hollywood debut is cancelled

Although Hollywood's track record with video game adaptations has been less than impressive over the years (see Super Mario Bros. for proof) we have to admit we were a little excited about Paul W. S.

NSFW: Manhunt 2 Wishes It Was This Hardcore

Tokyo Gore Police has the bloodiest Wii cameo yet

I watched Tokyo Gore Police last night via Netflix after having it sit on my desk for about two weeks. Or rather, I should say tried to watch it, as I shut it off about halfway through after a particularly nasty appendage-removal scene. For those that don't know about the movie, it's a Japanese Troma-style gorefest about bio-enhanced bad guys and..

The Wizard (1989)

Forget all you've been told. This film kicks all kinds of ass

In a world where everyone seems to have an opinion and they’re all too happy to force it upon others, it’s worth remembering that when judging something (be it a book, film or videogame) it all depends on your connection with that particular piece of media. For example, watching a...
