Nintendo held a Wii U Direct event this morning. It wasn't super long, but a few amazing things came out of it -- one of which people could barely contain themselves over. Whether you're a interested as a curious jaded Nintendo fan, or a diehard fanboy, here is everything that happened at today's event. (Chris Carter)
It's easy to see why so many people were turned off by SimCity when the always-on requirement was revealed, but despite that, I will still be getting Maxis's latest. The new SimCity is such an engaging, charming, and addictive experience that for the time being, I'm not too worried about what could possibly happen in the future. (Hamza Aziz)
A new trailer has arrived for Aliens: Colonial Marines, the game that's finally, definitely out in February and nobody can take that away from me. It's a video all about kicking ass, and how the Marines are the ones who shall do it. (Jim Sterling)
Just a short while ago, we received an email from MangaGamer, a distributor of English-translated Japanese adventure games. It contained a press release for an adult turn-based card battler entitled Boob Wars: Big Breasts vs Flat Chests. (Tony Ponce)
As you can see from our comments section below, this has been a messy issue. It got nasty when word got out that one buyer got over 200 copies and is now selling them on eBay. Disgusting. Thanks to our readers for informing us of this Facebook support group for this issue. (Dale North)
When THQ filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy last month, it was only a matter of time before the other shoe dropped. As of today, the 23-year old company has sold off all its assets, and in a few more weeks, the doors will completely close. (Tony Ponce)
