As someone who's been following Nintendo for quite awhile, they've almost never failed to surprise me. Though their origins are classic, Nintendo-developed games are continuously refined, retooled, and revitalized. Some may buy into that old standard line used mostly for musical artists that ...

Because you probably should watch it again We were pleasantly surprised by the House of the Dead: Overkill trailer. We haven't seen such a quality trailer since ... well, maybe ever. We're genuinely pumped for the game. But, enough about us. What was your most memorable trailer? The Metroid Prime ...

First 4 Figures has come back around full circle, after completing Sheik and Sonic and his pals, now they've got yet another Samus statue. This one, in our opinion, totally trumps all of their past efforts. Just look at the thing. Of course, the catch is that this costs a bunch of money. $224.99 i...

In the comments, reader John B. argued that no matter how much impressive technology Renegade Kid throws at Moon,...

Unless you're the type of person who carefully analyzes a game's credits upon completion (we only know one such man), you probably don't know who Mark Haigh-Hutchinson is. His most recent achievement is the titles in the Metroid Prime series, where he served as senior engineer and created the camera...

From Paperboy and Zombies Ate My Neighbors to a series of Star Wars titles like Dark Forces and Rebel Assault, his career has spanned several years and severa...

If you're anything like us, people are constantly hitting you up for Wii game recommendations.

While August yields some noteworthy NPD data in terms of hardware sales, the games populating the top twenty spots in the software chart provide the most interesting commentary. Before we get to that, however, we should gaze at the gargantuan pile of cash that represents the U.S. game industry. Game...
