It’s not a bug, it’s a “feature”
When discussing the greatest games in the Sonic franchise, Sonic 3D Blast is seldom mentioned by anyone, and for rather good reason. The foray into exploring 3D platforming for the ‘hog was slow and strange; not really capturing the magic of those first few games in the series. Even so, it’s an enduring...
"You're really interested in silly walks, aren't you?"
Pokémon Sun And Moon hasn't even been available for a full week and people are already discovering all kinds of strange and hilarious glitches in the game. One of the most common bugs involves your character's lower limbs acting rather strangely, calling to mind the legendary "Ministry of...
Blurring the lines
We know the popular narrative for some is to say that Sonic's been in a rut and had a bad run of games, but recent years have brought some solid entries. Sonic Colours / Sonic Colors certainly qualifies as one of the better releases in the past couple of generations, blending 2D and 3D play with some neat twists and power-ups. In...
It's a hot trick
It's only inevitable for a game like Super Smash Bros. to have its glitches emerge on a regular basis due to the amount of playtime that it is subjected to by millions of players everyday. Each match consists of a multitude of factors, triggering all kinds of events. In fact, a strange outcome of becoming 'Fire Kirby' has recently...
Makes us want to play it again
Super Mario Galaxy, in the opinion of this humble writer and we suspect a number of other gamers, is one of the best games ever produced; it's certainly near the top of the class in platformers, at least. Whether you regard it as Mario platforming perfection or not it does, nevertheless, have its share of glitches...
Hip, hip, Rupee!
Every Zelda fan knows you can never have enough Rupees, and thanks to a glitch discovered in the recent Wii U title Hyrule Warriors, it's now possible to get your hands on as much of that shiny currency as you could possibly want. At first, it was believed that the glitch was entirely random, but dedicated players have narrowed...
While life's a little tough for Sonic fans at the moment - including this writer - it's worth remembering that this generation of Nintendo hardware has (arguably) delivered a decent game with the blue blur. We're referring, of course, to Wii U exclusive Sonic Lost World - there's also a 3DS game that isn't as good - which has some...
Including a particularly tricky but cool way to skip to the end
Whenever gamers argue over which 2D Mario platformer is the best of them all, Super Mario Bros. 3 is normally included in the debate. It pushed the capabilities of the NES and blew a lot of minds when originally released, and still stands up as a terrific title by modern standards. The...
Everyone stay calm
This week game cheats have been in the news. We learnt about the origins of the Konami Code and, controversially, that Nintendo has no plans to fix Mario Kart 7’s Maka Waku glitch. All this talk of codes, shortcuts and glitches got us thinking about the morality of these gaming quirks: when is it acceptable to take advantage of...
Spawning glitch reportedly a non-issue after System Menu 4.2 update
Players of High Voltage Software's online FPS The Conduit are familiar with this scenario: after waiting up to five minutes to connect to a new multiplayer game, you'd spawn seemingly into a wall and not be able to do anything, not even leave the game without shutting down the console. It was one of those bugs that was as endlessly..
