Gearbox's Aliens: Colonial Marines is trying to deliver the Aliens sequel you always wanted. The team at Gearbox considers Alien3 to be a sequel to the original, leaving the action-heavy Aliens without a proper narrative followup. In Colonial Marines, a group of, well ... colonial marines find th...

Reactions to the Wii U and its controller have been somewhat mixed. Despite that, or perhaps because of that, there is no shortage of people hoping to find out for themselves.

After just barely revealing that an Assassin's Creed title is in the works for Nintendo's Wii U, Ubisoft reps took to the Nintendo roundtable this evening and spoke to some of the features we'll see in the still untitled game (we're calling it "Assassin's Cwiihd"). Well, okay, first Ubisoft wante...

After yesterday's Nintendo conference, we got a chance to play "Shield Pose" and other Wii U tech demos. For detailed impressions, you can read all about those here and here. Or, if you'd prefer to see it in action -- and see me kind of "dancing" by shaking the WiiPad -- head past the break....

While our feelings were ... oh, let's be nice and say "mixed" on Nintendo's just-announced Wii U traders on the Tokyo Stock Exchange were pretty much clear about their distaste. Nintendo stock closed down five percent yesterday after the company's E3 keynote, settling at 16,970 yen ($212.44) -- a...

Hey, remember yesterday when I said I would play the rest of the Wii U tech demos and deliver impressions of them for you? That doesn't even seem like the same day. In the east coast, it isn't. Anyway, I returned to Nintendo and took hold of the WiiPad™ to try out the rest of the experience...

When Nintendo showed off a reel of major third-party games currently in development for its newly announced console, the Wii U, the footage wasn't actually playing on Wii U hardware.

Wii, Wii U, and Wii ... everyone else was flooding the Nintendo show floor setup, making it nearly impossible to get through and see any of the publisher's games at E3 this year. So instead of stopping by to play Nintendo's many, many games on display, we just snapped a bunch of pictures of the s...

While earlier dalliances with the Wii U's "WiiPad" controller didn't include touchscreen interaction, a hands-on session with the "Measure Up" tech demo told me all I needed to know about the touchscreen technology behind the device. It has a stylus. A recess in the upper left of the unit hide...
