NES Classic Edition available NOW from ThinkGeek (with details)

The NES Classic Edition is again available from ThinkGeek this afternoon, starting immediately if not soon. This sale is from a collection of units apparently acquired by what GameStop describes as "one of the buying ninjas at GameStop" - whatever that means.

SNES Classic preorders cancelled: heads up if you bought from Walmart

SNES Classic preorders cancelled: heads up if you bought from Walmart

If you preordered the SNES Classic from Walmart, take heed: Walmart is cancelling those preorders, leaving behind ample lamenting and gnashing of teeth. The company recently sold out of the models, as preorders went quickly, and you'd be reasonable in expecting that to be the cause -- that is, the lack of available units.

We got a look at the Nazi Zombies in the upcoming Call of Duty: WWII game a few days ago, but we weren't supposed to. That leak spoiled the fun for Activision, perhaps, but gave fans their first look at the nazis that will be included in the franchise's next iteration. Following on its heels comes the official trailer for the game...or, specifically, for the nazi zombies part of it, arguably the part we care most about.

Star Wars fans are eagerly awaiting the arrival of Star Wars Battlefront 2, the sequel to 2015's fun-but-disappointing Battlefront game.
