"GamersGate has been around for quite some time… nearly a decade to be exact. It’s a digital distribution portal for PC games. You go there to buy games and have fun and sometimes interact with people of all varying types of racial diversity, sexual orientation, creeds, nationalities and regions. Because, you know, the gaming community is diverse. Well, GamersGate has been receiving “threats” and “harsh words” from those who got the name confused with the hashtag consumer revolt known as #Game..."



Nintendo has unveiled 50 features...or should I say over 50 features that will be appearing in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. game on the Nintendo Wii U, including an eight player smash mode and special offers to those who purchase both the 3DS and Wii U versions of the game.

Things that were included in the direct were:

Eight Player Smash: This is a first for the Smash series. There will be a mode in the Wii U version where you will be able to have eight players fight simultaneousl...

During the Super Smash Bros. Direct today, it was revealed that veteran Smash fighter, Mewtwo would be making his return to the Smash series. Mewtwo first appeared in Super Smash Bros. Melee and was absent in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

Most likely because of popular demand, Mewtwo will be available for free after you register both the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U version on Club Nintendo. He will be made available in Spring 2015 and more details will be made available in the future.

With Mewt...

Denis Murphy writes- My first experience with a Smash Bros title was back in 1999, with the release of the first entry in the series, Super Smash Bros. However, I didn't come to the series knowing every character on the roster. As some of you may know, when growing up I only had a Mega Drive, and sadly an additional gaming console in the house just wasn't an option financially.

Sam Terry writes- I’ve never been this excited yet worried for a game in my entire life. After the absolute pile of shit that was Aliens: Colonial Marines, my expectations for Alien: Isolation were never going to be huge. But surely it couldn’t be any worse, could it? No. This is simply one of THE best games I’ve ever played.

Portland Retro Gaming Expo was this last weekend and it was well worth the journey. It didn't matter what people were there for, from the arcade games and pinball, Tetris World Championship, to the panels and the vendors there was something for every kind of gamer. This may be the best retro gaming expo the United States has to offer.

Kyle Heller writes: "If you are into puzzle and trivia games then continue reading because may’s mysteries secret of dragonville might just be for you. I honestly didn’t expect much from this game since it was more for kids. But quiet honestly i had a lot of fun."

"Since then more have been confirmed; from NXT superstars, Adrian Neville and Cory Graves to the Ultimate Warrior. Though other superstars and divas such as Adam Rose and Paige have been confirmed as DLC."

While this Top Model 3D is family friendly, it does allow you to dress the models into bikini swim wear in the fashion design mini-game. We doubt kids will be entertained by this title and there are better games on the eShop to spend $20 on.

The Nintendo 3DS didn't exactly have the best start, but thankfully, a game came out and showed us exactly what the 3DS was capable of - that being Kid Icarus: Uprising. At least, that's what Watain tells us anyway. He explains that the controls for the ground section aren't the best in the world and that some of the later levels aren't up to scratch with the rest... but when the standard of the rest is incredibly high, that doesn't say much. He also discusses how well it executes the rail sh...

"Nintendo has finally started getting in on the DLC train (for better or for worse). They have some substantial new DLC in the works for Mario Kart 8, including new tracks and characters dropping this November and additional tracks and characters racing onto the scene in May of 2015."

"2K Games has revealed new screenshots for their upcoming wrestling title. These in-game photos feature NXT Champ Adrian Neville, Sami Zayn who were already confirmed. Now fans are given a first look at Corey Graves."

"Peggle 2 has finally made it to PlayStation 4 and I tell you what, we’ve missed the series. In preparation for our review later this week we’ve recorded footage of three of the five available Peggle Masters in the game along with their special abilities. Bjorn makes his return along with newcomers Berg the Yeti, Jeffrey the Troll and a couple more. Be sure to subscribe and “like” for more videos and plenty of fun features in the future!"

"Keen Software House must be rolling in the dough right now. One of the greatest games that’s never been formally advertised with a marketing budget and a team of poorly paid shills shoving trailers down your throat and pre-order DLC bonuses up every other forum post and social aggregator, has officially hit the milestone mark of selling one-million copies."

"For the time being, this will hopefully be the end of the Destructoid saga. It concludes with more people chiming in about Allistair Pinsof’s firing, the truth surrounding Holly Green’s firing and Dale North’s decision to make a call that affected the life and career of a close friend in a really bad way."

GG3 picks up a few figurines. Since it's rare that these things actually get play time from grown men, it's time to change that. Just look at all those moving joints, those can't just go to waste.

Darren from The Gamers Lounge writes "Although Monolith's adventure into Mordor was well received amongst most critics for it's impressive gameplay, the lack of a deep storyline left me struggling to make it through the game. Is it fair to give a game high review ratings simply based on gameplay, or have gamers' standards lowered enough so that a story no longer matters?"

In defense of the Xbox One. Sony took advantage of the bad publicity on the Xbox One when they marketed their PS4. At the same time, they designed a console for gamers. We look back and see what went wrong and whats in store for the future of the Xbox One.

After taking a little break, Cinelinx's Fathergamer Podcast is back with an all new episode. A new crew has joined the podcast team, but that hasn't changed our focus from talking about all things video games. This week's main topic is Destiny.

NoobFeed attends FACTS 2014 convention, the biggest nerd culture event in Belgium. It's been steadily growing each year. It looks like a gathering for a niche audience has now completely been replaced with the Marvel movie masses, which is bittersweet, but not fully dreary. Some good, some bad.

While freemium games are nothing new, Moshling Rescue! doesn’t add much to the match three style genre and goes a bit overboard in promoting micro-transactions. As much as it stinks losing a level, it further rubs salt into the wound by trying to sell me something that could have prevented it.

"Shadow of Mordor is a challenging game and you won’t last very long by mashing the attack button over and over again. Expect to die or flee often as the Uruks are a tough bunch and you will often find yourself outnumbered by a great deal. The Uruk Captains also add another layer of challenge with each of them having their own mix of strengths and weaknesses."
