  • Using The Sprint Button In Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

    4



    In a recent video, Bryan Vore I were discussing the use of the sprint button in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. I was sure there is no run button, while Bryan was sure there definitely is a run button. Technically we were both right. More

  • A Town Called Panic And The Lego Movie Are Kind Of The Same Film

    8 1

    In 2009, a bizarre animated movie from Belgium released titled A Town Called Panic. Apparently, it's the film version of a series of animated shorts that appeared on television in Europe. My first exposure to the film was running across random trailers online, but a few months later I found it had made its way to Netflix.

    The film is funny, bizarre, and fast-paced, and I recommend watching it – especially if you liked The Lego Movie. More

  • The Legend Of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds' Hero Mode Exclusives

    3

    I've played a lot of Link Between Worlds. Probably too much. I played through the game once, and quickly restarted it on the Hero Mode difficulty and didn't stop until I had everything. The main difference between the two modes is that in Hero Mode, you take significantly more damage, making the game harder. There are a few other differences though, and I grabbed a few example images if you were curious what else changes. More

  • Exploring Pokémon X & Y With Kalos' Worst Photographer

    9

    If Grand Theft Auto V and the The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD are any indication, the ability to photograph your virtual self in a video game is the future. It was a welcome surprise to learn that Pokémon X & Y offered this feature. It all falls apart, however, when you realize that despite claiming to be a professional photographer, Phil the Photo Guy has clearly never used a camera in his life and is making no effort to learn.

  • Bioshock Infinite's Biggest Mystery

    27

    I finally finished Bioshock Infinite last night, and can happily return to Internet message boards and walk around the Game Informer offices without my fingers in my ears. I, along with many others, walked away with questions. I dove into assorted summaries of the story and ending, watched our Spoiled video segment on the game, and can happily report that I think I mostly have a decent grasp on what happened. I have still have questions though. More

    The first round of this year's Super Replay Showdown was a harrowing experience for Kim and I, and if this quick behind the scenes video is any indication, it was also a stressful situation for Dan, as well. More

  • 10000000 Is A Near-Perfect Mobile Game

    10000000 is a weird name for a video game, arguably a bad one, but it is easy to find in the App Store, so the decision to call it that was not completely misguided. More
