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

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 that… » 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.

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… » 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

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
