Heard of Arcade Block? No? Shame on you. Watch me open one and feel shame.
We’re past the halfway point to 2013! So what is there to do? Why, make a list of things! Everyone loves lists, right? So last week we talked so damn much, that we weren’t able to fit all our blabbering into one podcast, so we split it! In part two, we talk about console and PC gaming! FUN TIMES!
We’re past the halfway point to 2013! So what is there to do? Why, make a list of things! Everyone loves lists, right? But a list of what, you may ask. How about the first half of 2013’s finest games? Here we talk games you download off of the Steams powered video boxes, the Xbox Live Arcades, and the Pea Essen! Listen in for your aural pleasure!
During their E3 Nintendo Direct this morning, Nintendo unveiled the next 3D Mario Platformer. Super Mario 3D World will release this December for the Wii U.

Each character will have unique abilities such as Luigi jumping higher and Toad running faster than the other characters(think Mario Bros. 2). The trailer also featured a few other looks at the game play and a new power up which you can check out after the jump!

In this week’s episode, Marcos and I touch up on the recent loss of long time game developer Lucas Arts, we give our verdict on Gears of War: Judgement, invigorate ourselves with our first impressions of Bioshock: Infinite, and recommend Shin Sekai Yori for your anime watchings-ons. Also, stay on after the sign off for a couple of gags.
Remember the Phantom Pain shown a few months back from Kojima? Remember how the internet “decoded” the title art into it hiding the other title, “Metal Gear Solid”? Yeah, they weren’t far from the truth.
Words are not needed. Here’s 17 minutes of real Battlefield 4 game play after the jump.
Seems Harmonix has revealed what will be the last hurrah to Rock Band’s long list of music downloads from its store. It was revealed at Harmonix’s Rock Band Party at PAX East in Boston.
In a move that can only be described as out of left field, Capcom and Disney, along with WayForward, have teamed up to bring back the once and still beloved game of Duck Tales originally released for the NES in 1989! More of Uncle Scrooge and his cane-pogo stick? Yes please!
Maxis has been swearing up and down that online-only play is integral to the game. It’s a game design choice, and part of the games architecture. It totally wasn’t a ruse to force DRM onto the game and not make fans unhappy, right? Hmm. It’s not looking that way.
It’s finally here! Happy days! For you fans of Scott Pilgrim and brawlers, the day is finally here where you can play with your friends across the country, across the world!
Yesterday we reported that Ed Boon has teased about a new character reveal for Injustice: Gods Among Us. We were excited! There were already 20 characters on the roster with only a month left to go! They’re adding more? Turns out, Ed Boon just kind of wrote his tweet weird. Silly 160 word limit.
The Mighty Brow, Ed Boon, has hinted on Twitter that he will have a “HUGE” character reveal tomorrow for Injustice: Gods Among Us, provided everything goes as planned. Everything goes as planned? I’m guessing he’s trying to not have another Assassin’s Creed 4 style early leak.
Maxis boss Lucy Bradshaw wrote on their own blog that EA’s players will receive a free game after a botched launch for Sim City.
If you’re a Sim City fan, then you know either one of two things: you’re sitting on $60 worth of nothing because the servers don’t work, or you’re sitting on $60 to buy Sim City but are afraid to waste it on worthless software. Welp, we’re not the only ones as Vikings kicker Chris Kluwe has opened his mouth and, well, just read on.
These trailers just keep on comin’! Here’s one for the last piece of DLC from DiCE and EA for Battlefield 3, a game that’s been getting support for a little over a year!
According to IGN, the new Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag will be taking a turn backwards a bit in time as opposed to moving forward as every game has in the series so far. It’s not a big step back, however. Remember Connor from Assassin’s Creed III? Father Haytham Kenway? Now you play as grand-pappy Kenway.
If you’ve been salivating for more of The Walking Dead from TellTale, you may be in luck. The wait for a season 2 may be long, but we may get a little something thrown at us before hand.
For the last week, Bungie’s Twitter feed had been leading to a countdown of sorts. The last three day’s worth of count downs lead to a pretty sweet – albeit cheesy – plug into their new game, Destiny.
Bloomberg earlier Wednesday announced that 2K Games will now be in charge of development of all WWE licensed games. The good news is that the development team, Yukes, is no longer contracted to make the game. The bad news is that 2K will be hiring the THQ Yukes employees that worked on the game. Fans of the game know what I mean.
Aliens: Colonial Marines releases today to abhorrent reviews and confusion among gamers, Alien fans, and gamers who are Alien fans. The fact that a game went so long into production and had, what seemed, a lot of love poured into it got released is pretty unsettling. Especially coming from Gearbox and a much cherished man in the industry known as Randy Pitchford. Something had to have gone awry, right?
Only six months after Epic acquired Big Huge Games and renamed themselves to Impossible Studios to assist Chair Entertainment with Infinity Blade: Dungeons , Epic has stated that their relationship is no more. Infinity Blades: Dungeons is now on “indefinite hold”.
