New Nintendo 3DS launches in U.S. on September 25

After questions and speculation and outcries and impatient waiting, Nintendo fans located in the U.S. will be able to get ahold of the smaller New Nintendo 3DS starting next month. Earlier this year, Nintendo announced the larger of the two new models in the US, but was careful to avoid giving any explicit statement either way about whether the smaller unit would be arriving in North America. Now the video game company has made an official statement, saying the device will be available starting September 25.

Mortal Kombat X suffers a fatality on Xbox 360, PS3

Mortal Kombat X suffers a fatality on Xbox 360, PS3

If you own one of two, or even both, previous gen consoles, don't expect to be treated to the brutal celebration of blood and gore that is Mortal Kombat X. On Warner Bros. Games' forums, yes, the same Warner Bros' whose PC port of Batman Akrham Knight has still to see a proper fix, the publisher made it official. Mortal Kombat X won't be coming anymore to the Xbox 360 or the PlayStation 3. This time, it's precisely because of quality control that they're canceling the port and issuing refunds.

Guild Wars 2 is now “Play for Free”, not “Free to Play”

Guild Wars 2 is now “Play for Free”, not “Free to Play”

With barely two months to go before its first and most massive expansion yet, ArenaNet has dropped a bombshell to entice more gamers to try out one of the longest (but definitely not the oldest) running MMORPG franchises in the market. Anyone can now play the base game of Guild Wars 2 absolutely for free. But that sounds a bit too much like going "free-to-play" and that is exactly the perception that ArenaNet is trying to avoid by not using the term and emphasizing that most things are still in status quo.

Mighty No. 9 backers score exclusive demo

Mighty No. 9 backers score exclusive demo

The Kickstarter success and hotly anticipated game Mighty No. 9 has become a disappointment for many backers, as the planned release date came and went, and then the second planned release date — next month — was postponed until later on next year. Backers were disappointed the first time around and outright upset the second time, and the makers behind the game feel bad about it all. To give those patient backers something in reward, the makers have announced a new exclusive demo.

Lara Croft GO: imagine Tomb Raider as a board game

Lara Croft GO: imagine Tomb Raider as a board game

Square Enix seems to have found a new distraction: turning existing popular game franchises into turn-based strategy games played over what feels like a diorama board set. It has happened before with Hitman and has now happened again with Tomb Raider. Or rather, "Lara Croft", as she is marketed now. Lara Croft GO, which launches on mobile as well as Windows 10, is meant to bring players back to the classic roots of the Tomb Raider games. Somewhat interestingly, it makes more sense than with Hitman GO.

Turok is being restored for PC, will release on Steam

Night Dive Studios will re-animate the classic games Turok: Dinosaur Hunter and Turok 2: Seeds of Evil for the PC. The game will essentially be restored for modern machines, and once finished, it will be made available through Steam, GamersGate, Humble, and more. The game first launched nearly two decades ago in 1997, and quickly earned itself a faithful fan base. The game was rebooted several years ago for the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3, but did not enjoy the same success as the original titles.

Hearthstone Grand Tournament expansion brings 132 new cards

Hearthstone Grand Tournament expansion brings 132 new cards

Unlike Mojang's Scrolls, it seems that Blizzard's Hearthsthone online card battle game is doing quite well. At least well enough to warrant a major expansion to this sub-franchise of the Warcraft line. Like you would expect from a card game expansion, The Grand Tournament dumps a whole lot of new cards for players, just a bit over 130 in total. Of course there are new features to be had as well, including a new "Inspire" mechanic and new ranking rewards at the end of each month.

Pac-Man 256 turns historical glitch into endless runner

Pac-Man 256 turns historical glitch into endless runner

It seems to be a Pac-Man year this year. The bright yellow chomper celebrated his 35th anniversary last May, which brought along some new features for the mobile port of the game. Then in June, the game was finally and rightfully inducted into the Video Game Hall of Fame. Let's not forget about that almost Pac-Man inspired space junk eating satellite idea. Though we're willing to forget a certain film this month. Today, a new Pac-Man joins the mobile club with Pac-Man 256 giving a playful twist to an ancient bug.
