Nintendo Predicts Seattle Win For Super Bowl XLIX With Mario Kart And Toad

By | News | No Comments

Nintendo is rooting for its home team, and it has made that clear with a Mario Kart 8 gif starring the New England Patriots’ Rob Gronkowski and the Seattle Seahawks’ Marshawn Lynch’s alter ego – Toad.

Hey @MoneyLynch! We heard you like Toad, so we used #MK8 to run a simulation of Sunday’s game…

— Nintendo of America (@NintendoAmerica) January 31, 2015

Lynch’s love of Toad was shared during a recent episode of Conan O’Brien’s Clueless Gamer series. Lynch, when asked by Conan what he likes to play, replied, “Mario Kart,” to which Conan followed-up by asking, “What do you like about Mario Kart?” and Lynch said, “Toad. And I like driving.” So, in the gif, you will see Toad taking out what appears to a Mii version of Rob Gronkowski.

Nintendo is based in Seattle and clearly has a love for local professional sports as it is the majority owner of the Seattle Mariners Major League Baseball team.

Fan Made Portal 2 Mod Looks Good Enough To Be From Valve

By | News | No Comments

Playing the mod might offer a different conclusion, but in trailer form at least, Portal Stories: Mel looks like it could have come straight from Valve.

You can check out the trailer below (which is available in 60FPS if you’re on a Chrome browser). The mod, which will be free, tells the story of Mel who interacts with new personality cores against a new enemy across 20 different puzzle maps. Based on the video, it looks like it takes place during the early days of Aperture’s testing initiatives.

You can find more about the mod on its Steam page here.

Another recent Portal mod that became popular, Aperture Tag, was a Portal game without portals, and instead gave players a special gun that could shoot the blue and orange gel seen in Portal 2. For more on that mod, head here.

Super Replay Title Cyberia Now Available On

By | News | No Comments

Senior associate editor Tim Turi calls Cyberia the worst game he has ever beaten, and now it’s available to play from Good Old Games.

Originally released in 1994, Cyberia is a PC adventure game with puzzles and on-rails shooting segments, and it is absolutely terrible. We played through the game in its entirety for Super Replay and were so impressed that we jumped right into the sequel. If you’ve been waiting for a chance to try the game yourself without having to boot up an old PC and track down a physical copy of the game, now is your chance.

If you would rather watch the game be played as opposed to suffering it yourself (our recommendation, frankly), you can check out the full Super Replay by heading here. Or you can check out the first episode below.

Thanks to Andrew M for the news tip!


Our Take
It turns out most people don’t have a giant locked vault of classic games near their desk, which is why it is awesome Good Old Games is working to bring these “classics” back in playable form. Otherwise, they would be lost to time, which would be a shame. Everyone(‘s enemies) should experience Cyberia.

Metal Gear Rising 2 Teased At Taipei Game Show

By | News | No Comments

It’s a blink-and-you-miss-it tease, but it looks like Metal Gear Rising 2 may be in development for PlayStation 4.

Appearing during part of Taipei Game Show’s live stream (not to be confused with Tokyo Game Show, which shares the same acronym), the image you see above flashed quickly during a montage of upcoming PlayStation games. During an The Order: 1886 clip where the team is counting down for a payload drop, during the number two, a number two with the Metal Gear Rising font flashed on screen.

You can see the tease yourself by checking out the stream here and jumping to around the 2:46 mark. For our review of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, head here.

Thanks to Aaron Quixote for the news tip!


Our Take
This certainly feels like a Hideo Kojima-flavored tease. I can’t think of much else it could possible be. Maybe we will find out more at E3.

Alienware Alpha Review

By | News | No Comments

Numerous Steam machines debuted at CES 2014, but Alienware’s solution, the Alpha, stood out from the pack. It wasn’t an underpowered or rebranded product, and it also wasn’t sitting next to a four figure price tag. Alienware’s little box looked to be t…
