Zebras Made My PS3 More Beautiful

One of the key games used by Sony to demonstrate the graphical prowess of the PlayStation 3 prior to its North American release, Majesco's safari simulator Afrika came out three years after the console launched and wasn't very good. It's dynamic theme, on the other hand, is exquisite. » 10/15/13 7:22pm 10/15/13 7:22pm

I'd Forgotten This All-Girl Fighting Game Was A Thing

Man, what was that game again? The one where the women are all kidnapped and forced to fight, with the Nobel Peace Prize winner in the fishnet top and cut-offs with electrical tape over her chest? Man, good thing Kung Fu Factory decided to get rid of... oh wait, they're still making Girl Fight? And it's due out this… » 9/05/13 10:00am 9/05/13 10:00am

The Odd Gentlemen Return With a Distinctively Different Music Puzzle…

Way back in the golden days of 2010, small developer The Odd Gentlemen released a pie-collecting platform puzzler on Xbox Live Arcade and Steam called The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom. It was genius. Then The Odd Gentlemen disappeared into the mists, never to be seen again. » 11/15/12 3:55pm 11/15/12 3:55pm

Double Dragon's High-Def Throwback Headbutts Into Consoles in September

We're circumspect that a console do-over of Double Dragon could have the same appeal as the quarter-sucking vacuum cleaner that lined arcade walls in the 1980s. The air-guitaring at a stage's end seems to be a bit much. But Double Dragon Neon will get its shot anyway come Sept. 11. Majesco said the game releases… » 7/18/12 10:30pm 7/18/12 10:30pm

As Promised, Here I am Looking Like a Jackass Playing NBA Baller Beats

We saved my weirdest E3 appointment for last—checking out the rhythm/sports hybrid NBA Baller Beats from Majesco and HB Games about four hours before my flight last Thursday. The teaser videos may have looked ridiculous, but some of that can be attributed to overacting and over-editing. How does this Kinect game… » 6/13/12 7:30pm 6/13/12 7:30pm

See This? See This Blend of Sports Skill and Dancing Rhythm? Yeah,…

No, NBA Baller Beats, a Kinect rhythm game, is not a joke, but I'm sure as hell going to look like one attempting to play it when I swing by Majesco's booth later this week at E3. I can't do a crossover dribble. I can't even dribble with my left hand. Now, I can dribble in my left hand, but that's a different activity. » 6/05/12 5:30pm 6/05/12 5:30pm

Today's Punishment: Camping Mama's Sing-Along Trailer

Punishment was a concept I tried out in 2009 and it didn't last long, because there weren't enough mortifying, teeth-grating, or sickeningly sweet videos to publish one per week. But I thought of it when I saw this Camping Mama trailer. And you guys have gone a long time without saying your hail marios. » 9/10/11 2:00pm 9/10/11 2:00pm

They've Taken Twister and Made It Not Twister

Yesterday when I posted the news that Majesco was bringing the classic full-body board game Twister to the Xbox 360 Kinect, I figured it would at least maintain some resemblance of the original product. Then came the first screens for Twister Mania. » 8/30/11 4:00pm 8/30/11 4:00pm

Video Game Version of Twister Offers Fewer Flirting Opportunities

In the old days, playing Twister involved a group of (hopefully drunk) friends of mixed sex, a plastic play mat, and a spinner. In November, thanks to the video game magicians at Majesco, all you'll need it a $200 to $300 video game console, a $150 add-on, and a $50 video game. » 8/29/11 3:20pm 8/29/11 3:20pm

The Hidden is the Strange Lovechild of Face Raiders and Ghostbusters,…

At first glance, The Hidden looks an awful lot like Face Raiders, one of the free augmented reality games pre-installed on every 3DS. Like Face Raiders, The Hiddenis a shooter that uses the 3DS' camera to superimpose things for you to shoot in your real world environment, turning whatever room you're in into a… » 8/03/11 6:40pm 8/03/11 6:40pm

How Many Interns Does it Take to Cover a Press Event?

Last week, ace Kotaku Interns Jen Schiller and Joshua Rivera underwent a vital video game journalism rite of passage: their first publisher Press Event. At the suggestion of their mentor and spiritual guide Stephen Totilo, the two met up afterward via the magic of the internet to discuss their thoughts on the… » 8/03/11 2:20pm 8/03/11 2:20pm

Psychonauts is Back Where it Belongs

Having been the property of companies like THQ and Majesco, the publishing rights to cult platformer Psychonauts are now back where they belong: with Double Fine, the people who actually made the game. » 6/15/11 3:30am 6/15/11 3:30am

The Wii Jaws Game is for Kids, the 3DS One Isn't

This fall's Jaws: Ultimate Predator will be released on the Wii and 3DS and, in it, you'll play as a shark. No surprise there. That's how it worked in 2007's Jaws Unleashed. » 6/13/11 4:20pm 6/13/11 4:20pm

The Single Sexiest Thing in BloodRayne Betrayal

The developers at Way Forward, veterans of recent 3D remakes and sequels to games like Contra and A Boy and His Blob are turning BloodRayne, a 3D action game series about a sexy lady vampire that launched nine years ago, into a 2D action brawler. » 6/10/11 5:30pm 6/10/11 5:30pm

Hulk Hogan's Kinect Game Teaches the Fine Art of Wrestling Showmanship

Being a successful professional wrestler takes more than having the right moves in the ring, and no one knows that better than the legendary Hulk Hogan. That's why the Kinect-powered Hulk Hogan's Main Event focuses as much on winning the crowd as it does winning the match. » 5/27/11 1:30pm 5/27/11 1:30pm

Cooking Mama Barges Into Café World's Kitchen

Every day thousands of players flock to Zynga's Café World, clicking on food and serving it to the virtual masses for experience points and in-game coinage. That's some sweet action right there, and Cooking Mama wants a piece of it. » 1/13/11 11:40am 1/13/11 11:40am

Stuffing A Wii Remote Into A Baby Looks As Awful As It Sounds

I maintain this isn't a "real" game. I think somebody, somewhere was taking the piss until publisher Majesco actually took the bait, is actually releasing it, and now it's all gotten a little awkward. » 10/22/10 1:30am 10/22/10 1:30am
