As the Kickstarter campaign is drawing to a close we are given a glimpse into NightCry’s horrific world.

Clock Tower’s Successor NightCry Cuts Its Way to Kickstarter

Its no secret that Clock Tower is making a return in the form of NightCry, a spiritual successor to the series.

Four Cool Fire Emblem Crossovers and Cameos

Fire Emblem is a series which mostly keeps to itself. You don’t see Marth playing basketball with real life sportsmen or Sigurd racing in Mario Kart titles.

Ten Interesting Link Links: Zelda Crossovers

I’m sure everybody’s very excited for the Mario Kart 8 DLC which will see Link from The Legend of Zelda series racing against Mario and his friends in the Mushroom Kingdom (as well as adding a cool Hyrule track), but this isn’t the first crossover Link’s been involved with. Let’s look back over some of the […]Read More

Donkey Kong Country (Really) Returns: A Rare Treat

These days, it can be a little sad to be a fan of Rare and their games. Whenever they try to make a game in the same vein as their old popular classics, Microsoft has become notorious for cancelling the projects. Really, the only new appearances that their characters get to make these days are […]Read More
