Mega Man Mobile is here, six games for $2 each

Mega Man Mobile is here, six games for $2 each

True to its word, Capcom has indeed released the mobile port of its first six Mega Man games, though it should have probably chosen a better time to do so. Mega Man Mobile’s launch is likely to be buried under the flood of CES 2017 announcements this week. But that might also work in its favor, considering the rather low rating the game is getting. Hate it or love it, Mega Man 1 to 6 is now available on Android and iOS, but you’ll have to pony up $1.99 to get each and every single game in the list.

PS4 2017 exclusives revealed, excludes Detroit, Dreams

The holiday season might be over, but, for gamers, that really only means that the sales are done. The new year also heralds the arrival of new titles that have once been teased and will soon become real. That is practically Sony's message when it gave an appetizer of a video showing off the PlayStation 4 exclusives that fans can look forward to this year. That is, if all goes well. Unfortunately, the editors over at Sony missed the erroneous inclusion of two titles, briefly raising false hopes.

First ever Steam Awards ends, here are the winners

Awards in the gaming industry, whether big-time, Triple-A stuff or indie, are nothing new. There are even halls of fame, like in history, sports, or entertainment.

That is, until Valve decided it was time to set the course of history straight with its first ever Steam Awards which just concluded at the turning of the year. Now the votes are in and the trophy winners have been revealed. But if you were expecting anything like the Emmy's, you're definitely in the wrong industry.

Mega Man Mobile pre-registration is up, no rewards offered

Nintendo may be taking its sweet time to bring its sweet time to bring even just its characters to mobile, other Japanese gaming giants aren't so slow-paced. Square Enix, for example, has practically ported its entire Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest series to smartphones and now Capcom is following suit with Mega Man Mobile. The company has just opened up its pre-registration page for the game but, if you were hoping to get something in return for being an early bird, no such luck.

Here are the Sony PlayStation games coming to mobile next year

Here are the Sony PlayStation games coming to mobile next year

Mobile gaming has long been in full bloom (some might even argue it already plateaued), but the big console makers didn’t get the memo in time. It was only in September that Nintendo finally announced its first real mobile game, Super Mario Run, and rival Sony isn’t going to be left behind. Except that, it will, because it won’t be until 2017 when it launches 10 titles for both iOS and Android, hailing from its vast PlayStation treasury of games.

MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries brings back the single-player way

MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries brings back the single-player way

Almost every game these days have an online element to them, either really playing with others online in a massive persistent world or simply going into one-off skirmishes. Some gamers, however, have a deep love for keeping things single. Such gamers might find solace and joy in the announcement of MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries, the first time in over 15 years that the franchise is getting a non-multiplayer, totally single-player game. That is, if developers Piranha Games successfully launches it in 2018.

Minecraft Pocket Edition greets 5 years with Ender teaser

Minecraft Pocket Edition greets 5 years with Ender teaser

Minecraft was perhaps not intended to be many things when it was first conceived and created. It wasn't intended to be an educational tool, much less a tool for education artificial intelligence. It was certainly not intended, at least at first, to be used on smartphones. And yet, Minecraft now does all that and, in fact, the Pocket Edition just celebrated its fifth year of existence last month. As both a congratulations and a gift to faithful mobile crafters, Mojang, now under the auspices of Microsoft, is teasing what is soon to come: the big version one-point-oh. Also known as, "get your butt kicked by the Ender Dragon".

New Zelda: Breath of the Wild vids finally tease Zelda

New Zelda: Breath of the Wild vids finally tease Zelda

The Legend of Zelda is one of the oddest named video games in history. Although Zelda does play a critical role in the game's world, she isn't exactly the hero(ine) of the stories. That privilege belongs to the (almost always) silent Link. Of course, she's part and parcel of every Zelda game, and though we haven't seen her yet, we presume she's also in the upcoming Breath of the Wild. At The Game Awards, Nintendo finally gives us a glimpse of the princess. Somewhat.

Kojima’s creepy Death Stranding adds Mads Mikkelsen to cast

When you're a famed game designer forever frustrated by having a horror title pulled out from under your feet, you might be forgiven for putting somewhat disturbing teasers of a game still shrouded in mystery. Yes, we are talking about Hideo Kojima's so far bizarre trailers for his upcoming title, Death Stranding. At The Game Awards, where he finally received an industry award without Konami's legal antics, Kojima reveals the game's second trailer, which explicitly names Mads Mikkelsen but implicitly includes Guillermo del Toro.

Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series revealed

What do The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Batman, and Guardians of the Galaxy have in common? Aside from being hit titles in the entertainment market, that is. As of today, all four of the above have a Telltale Game to their name. Or at least soon all four will. At The Game Awards, famed game makers Telltale Games and the comic book giant Marvel announced a collaboration that no one except them saw coming: a game based on a once obscure superhero team that has unexpectedly taken the box office by storm.

Minecraft introduces flying Elytras, cartoon textures

Minecraft introduces flying Elytras, cartoon textures

Holiday season isn’t just shopping season. It’s also gaming season. Which is why game makers usually go all out during this time to ensnare bored or willing victims into their choice of escape from reality. And nothing says “escape from reality” more than Minecraft. Appropriately, Mojang has just announced some holiday treats for everyone, both on consoles and mobile, though not everyone is getting the exact same gifts. Console gamers will have adventures and misadventures in the air, while those on mobile can make goofy faces instead.
