Adventure games: lots of humorous storytelling, delightful art, and a lot of annoying mechanics that should all just die in a fire. Am I right?

Thimbleweed Park, the upcoming adventure game from Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick of Maniac Mansion fame, hopes to close the book on those crappy outdated old mechanics and get us back into adventure games.

Here’s a little trailer to show you what they’re hoping to do.

Looks like SNES classics Pilotwings, Super Mario World, and F-Zero will be available today in the Nintendo eShop.

Super Mario Kart, Earthbound, and Donkey Kong Country will be available on March 24.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Metroid, and Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest will make it to your handheld on April 14th.

Why, though, will these older video games require Nintendo’s latest handheld hardware, the New 3DS and the New 3DS XL?

During today’s Nintendo Direct announcement, Nintendo said that the games will feature a “Pixel Perfect Mode,” which will let the games to be played in their original resolution. I’m unsure why “older” hardware, like the 3DS, 3DS XL and even newer 2DS won’t be able to run these games.

Is it Nintendo trying to push us to all get a New 3DS? Is there some technical reason?

Let us know what you think in the comments below.

Happy 20th, Resident Evil! Now where are our presents?

Oh, hey! They’re right here!

You can save up to 75 percent over at the Playstation Store, with RE titles available for both PS4 and the PS3, which really is still a very capable machine.

Check out the sale if you have a mind to, and remember to carry lots of herb with you.

Remember, though, that new RE games are coming to PS4 soon, and you should have (still might be ale to) picked up Resident Evil 2 Revelations on PS Plus for FREE.

GameStop jumps the (rail)gun – Titanfall 2 is coming

For reals, yo.

For reals, yo.

Twitter user Niall Maher took a snapshot of his local GameStop, confirming the fact that the video game superstore has Titanfall 2 boxes up on shelves for pre-order.

EA hasn’t officially announced the sequel to 2014’s mega-hit Titanfall, yet.


Of course, it could be a fake, as the games appear to be on the PS3 shelf – which makes no sense for a game that was Xbox One exclusive.

The Church in the Darkness will creep you out

Just go ahead and watch that.

Listen to the strident voices of your cult leaders as they tell you why their way is the right way, why the rest of the world is corrupt, and how you must purify yourself for the greater, socialist good.

Watch as the camera pans over cages, huts, and barbed wire-wrapped posts. See the members of the cult spell out “HELP US” in palm fronds on a nearby beach.

Get ready to play The Church in the Darkness.
