Game News

A Nintendo 64 emulator managed to sneak its way onto the Xbox Live Store over the weekend, but was hastily removed by Microsoft:

And this is the part that I'm most excited about. The Final Fantasy Trading Card Game is finally getting released in Europe and North America:

Paper Mario: Color Splash (Wii U)


I can't say I've ever been a Gears of War fan, but I'll be darned if I'll let another Paper Mario game slip past me. I can't deny that I'm disappointed that the series is moving away from the RPG genre in favor of an adventure-type game, but it still looks like fun and I'll think I'll give it a shot unless I hear anything overwhelmingly negative about it. Hopefully it can entertain me until the Final Fantasy TCG comes out and my wallet becomes significantly skinnier. Thank you so much for reading up to this point. Next week you can expect another pair of episodes from my Pokemon FireRed Jacklocke challenge.
