It's inconceivable to us why Nintendo doesn't offer demos for its Wii games. Besides being a cool freebie to entice people to buy a system, easy access to demos leads to better sales of full games. Sony and Microsoft figured this out years ago, offering PlayStation, PS2 and Xbox demo discs with t...

Prism tasks you with saving the Glowbos, a black-hole-inhabiting race of blobs. A space monster has absor...

That countdown at www.smashbros.com just concluded, revealing ... absolutely nothing, and we don't mean absolutely nothing in a GTAIV-trailer-crashed-our-servers way. The page simply reads "starting today (Japan time)." What's starting today? Since they're not saying anything, we'll turn to our fr...

It's a great time for people who can't get enough of beloved mascots that also happen to be two-dimensional.
