about X hours ago from

Dong Nguyen, the creator of Flappy Bird, released a new game last week with Swing Copters 2.

As the title implies, it is a sequel to Swing Copters. You can can grab the ad-supported, free-to-play game for iOS here. Last year, Nguyen famously pulled his massive hit game Flappy Bird down from iTunes at the height of its popularity. Since Flappy Birds, Nguyen has released three games: Super Ball Juggling, Swing Copters, and now Swing Copters 2.

Reader Discussion: What Worlds Do You Want To See For Kingdom Hearts III?

about X hours ago from

We got some new details about Kingdom Hearts III this morning, which prompts a common question for the franchise – what worlds do you want to see Sora visit?

Pixar is under-represented in the game so far, and other tangential Disney franchises like Marvel and Star Wars are certainly exciting to consider, but let's try to remain realistic. I think Wall-E could be cool, though I would rather see the abandoned Earth than the Axiom. How about classic Disney movies? Sleeping Beauty? Maybe the 2000 half live-action half animated, Dinosaur? How about Meet the Robinsons? That movie has a lot of cool technology in it.

Let us know in the comments below!

Mega Man Zero 4 And Battle Network 5 Now Available On Wii U Virtual Console

Mega Man Zero 4 And Battle Network 5 Now Available On Wii U Virtual Console

Capcom released a trio of Man games on Virtual Console on Thursday.

Mega Man Zero, Mega Man Battle Network: Team Colonel, and Mega Man Battle Network: Team Protoman. Zero is $7.99, and the two Battle Networks are $6.99 each.

When it  released in 2005 we gave Mega Man Zero 4 an 8 writing, "Zero 4 delivers what fans expect out of a Mega Man title – namely, cool boss battles and hectic side-scrolling action – and addresses some of the issues of previous entries in the series. [...] Zero 4 still runs into some problems with overly generous hit detection and not allowing you to see far enough ahead to plan out your moves, but if your GBA hole needs plugging, this is a good choice."

Weekend Warrior – We Awaken The Force

about X hours ago from

There's some movie called The Force Awaken's coming out this weekend, and if we haven't already seen it we're going to see it...or going again. What are you up to this weekend?

Mike Futter (@futterish) – This weekend I hope to finish up Tales from the Borderlands, start Fallout 4, and dig into Elite Dangerous on PC with my new flight stick. I also will probably continue my Divinity: Original Sin – Enhanced Edition playthrough with my friend. That game is a whole different experience when taken as a co-op adventure.

Kyle Hilliard (@KyleMHilliard) – I went overboard and found everything in Rise of the Tomb Raider before finishing it off and have now moved onto the gif generator known as Just Cause 3. She's a little young, but I think I'm going to try and watch the original trilogy with my daughter this weekend, before her mom and I go see Episode VII.

The New Ghostbusters Get Their First Impressive Cast Shot

There’s a new Ghostbusters film coming next year, and the quartet of Venkman, Stanz, Spengler, and Zeddemore aren’t the stars. The upcoming movie stars a brand new cast of young comedians.

The new crop of New York’s finest is played by Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids), Melissa McKinnon (Saturday Night Live), Kristin Wiig (Saturday Night Live), (Saturday Night Live). Yes, that’s a lot of Saturday Night Live, which was also home to original Ghostbusters cast members Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd. Harold Ramis, who played Egon Spengler, worked with the pair at Second City improv comedy theatre.

In addition to the very green new image above, posters for each of the four were revealed last night. You can see them over at Ain’t It Cool News.
