Sega's Repackaged Transformers Arcade Game Is An Unexpected Nod To Its Glorious Past

Feeling the G-Force

Back when arcades really mattered, Sega was one of the industry's big hitters. The company not only produced amazing titles like Golden Axe and Alien Storm, but also ran a pretty amazing line in dedicated coin-op cabinets.

Mario, Luigi and Wario Cheer On Tour de France Riders

Ooh la la

The Tour de France is well underway, and this great cycling event wouldn't be complete without some colourful characters to cheer on the riders.

Splatoon Has Been Impressively Recreated In Team Fortress 2

Modding madness

Splatoon has been a critical and commercial success for Nintendo, and has introduced an entire generation of players to the concept of an online, team-based shooter.

Keeping it real fake

Nintendo is working on its next console - dubbed the "NX" - but the company remained tight-lipped at this year's E3. 2015 will go down as a period of transition for the Japanese veteran as it looks to slowly retire its current pair of consoles and move towards something new and exciting, but the lack of solid news means that...

Although very difficult to perform

YouTuber Master0fHyrule has created a video of a glitch found by Miiverse user Glob in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, and for once it's not one that can turn the tide in mid-battle. The glitch results in the winning character/team poised in a 'T-Pose' position during the results screen after a match. For those...

​There's Already a Splatoon Inspired Minecraft Mod

Where there's a will, there's a way

It seems like there's a mod for just about anything in Minecraft. The extremely open ended and modular nature of the core game leaves the door wide open for just about any type of game to be created within it, from platformers to shooters to racers. Granted, there's usually an absurd amount of complicated...

Too amazing not to share

It's the end of a long week, so some light relief is certainly in order; we present the latest teaser for Pokémon Get☆TV to serve that very purpose.

The Second Player Can Have Motion Controls in Splatoon's Battle Dojo Mode

Erm, OK

Splatoon may be gracing plenty of Wii U systems worldwide, but the official Tumblr account is still rolling on, and has shared a rather peculiar and fun trick. It seems that both players can use motion-based aiming controls in the local multiplayer Battle Dojo mode, with a bit of bizarre customisation. By quite literally strapping a Wii U...
