Sony Sued The Actor Behind Kevin Butler (Yes, This Really Happened)

Sony has done something that seems so unjustified in a way that even I, Mr. PlayStation fanboy extraordinaire, can’t defend it or spin it in a positive light.  A lot of dumb things have come out of Sony such as the infamous E3 2006 debacle and more constant things such as unloading a bevy of PSN games in the same week, but Sony went ahead and did something that seems entirely frivolous - they sued actor Jerry Lambert, the man members of the PlayStation nation know better as Kevin Butler.

Pro-Tips: Pokémon Part 1

It’s been 14-years since Nintendo introduced the world to one of the best selling role-playing games of all time, Pokémon... and just like creatures you train, the game has evolved over the years. In this Pro-Tips, we’ll break down everything there is to know about those cute killing machines, how to become the best trainer like no one ever was, and what you can expect when Pokémon Black and White 2 hits store shelves.

Wii U Toys Inbound From Burger King

The official public hype cycle of the Wii U amongst the mainstream public could begin shortly in a somewhat conventional but still unexpected way.  With a release date and prices now set, Nintendo will assuredly begin to roll out Wii U advertising through adverts that show how the console is fun for the whole family, or at least a perfect family as envisioned by a marketing firm.  Besides the regular media blitz that Nintendo will activate for the Wii U, some additional hype may originate from a fast food giant.

Nintendo Reveals Wii U Release Date And Price

After months of waiting, Nintendo has finally revealed a release date and price for their next gen-console, Wii U.

Best of PAX Prime 2012

First of all, before the merriment of an award ceremony (in text format) I want to offer a quick apology for our readership. This year’s PAX Prime information will be coming to you a day (or rather a couple of days late) due to an unhealthy amount of poor planning on our part, in conjunction with some rather unfortunate circumstances…

Project Sora (Kid Icarus: Uprising) Disbands

 

Another day, another developer vanishes from the gaming world... this time it's the team behind Kid Icarus: Uprising, Project Sora. According to the developer's website, Project Sora has been closed since June 30 for reasons still unknown. The website itself will close down as of July 31.

Now it's important to know that Project Sora was merely a branch on the tree that is Sora Ltd. Masahiro Sakurai, founder of Sora Ltd., opened Project Sora back in 2005. The studios first and only creation was Uprising.

Tank! Tank! Tank! Hands-On [E3 2012]

I think it’s relatively safe to say that Nintendo’s E3 2012 press conference was an astounding bust of such epic proportions that it nearly rivals Sony’s infamous E3 2006 press conference. There may not have been any massive enemy crabs or soul crunching announcements of a $599 price point, but the lack of firm details and constant tip-toeing about certain things resulted in a showing from Nintendo that was almost embarrassing as it played things more safe than even how Sony does sometimes.  

Nintendo’s Disappointing E3 2012 Press Briefing

Nintendo has been a confusing mistress these past few months. Having grown up fiercely loyal to Nintendo through NES, SNES and N64 consoles, I have a nostalgic soft spot for Mario and the gang. This year, everyone knew Wii U would be a hot topic at E3 2012. Few things in gaming can generate buzz like console launch news, so all eyes were on Nintendo.  Did they steal the show? Nope.

Ubisoft E3 2012 Confrence Recap & Impressions

After experiencing the awkward 2011 E3 showing from Ubisoft (the one where they announced they invented laser tag), I wasn’t really sure what to expect from them this year. What Ubisoft ended up delivering was a streamlined presentation that catered directly to its core E3 audience.

Nintendo Direct: Nintendo's Pre-E3 Show is Live NOW

Unfortunately I won’t be down at E3 myself personally this year, but that does give me the opportunity to have an expanded view of the show. While Corey and Ian are settling in, we (outside of the convention) can catch up on some of the pre-show goings on. If you already missed it, Konami did their show late last week, and today Nintendo is showcasing what they’re bringing to the show, namely the Wii U and its controllers:
