Fatal Frame Developers on Why Water was a Central Theme and How Ayane Came to be Included

Evidently, ghosts are less likely to appear in dry climates

Dinosaurs and New Playable Characters Are Now Available for Disney Infinity 3.0

Rawr

Disney Infinity 3.0 has been out for a while now and is arguably the best version of the game, yet.

Crazy Super Mario Maker Level Creator, Panga, Has Produced Another Insane Level

Took a combined 50 hours to upload

Super Mario Maker is a wonderful release from Nintendo, giving fans the ability to share incredibly creative levels.

Whoops, Toys "R" Us is Listing Star Fox Zero for November in Its Catalogue

"Jeez! Can anyone take care of it?"

Those on the Toys "R" Us mailing list in North America may be receiving its 'Book of Awesome', a catalogue with such a marketing push behind it that it even has its own commercial. As with any print run, though, it's liable to run into issues should details change late in the day; this one's unfortunately been...

ZombiU Servers Reanimate After Being Down for Several Months

Graffiti is back!

Though it's ancient history now by game industry standards, ZombiU is arguably one of only a few games on the Wii U to fully make usage of the GamePad, and the launch title is still a decent survival horror romp for those who might be interested.
