As we all wait impatiently for Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, Nintendo’s distributing a Pumpkaboo – via X & Y’s Mystery Gift – for the duration of October.
In keeping with the Halloween theme, it’ll know the moves Trick-or-Treat and Scary Face, and arrive holding the Rocky Helmet item.
As confirmed in the fictitious trailer above, Thomas Was Alone will be coming to Wii U, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One next month. It’s being ported over by the team at Curve Studios, where it’ll join Lone Survivor: Director’s Cut and Stealth Inc. 2 in its Nintendo eShop line-up for the remainder of 2014.
The latest Wii U firmware update has brought along a number of changes and enhancements to its operating system, on top of the usual stability updates – the most prominent being the addition of folders on the Home menu.
Simply tap an empty space and you’ll be asked if you’d like to create a folder, which can then be used to house up to sixty software titles. Which brings us to the question: how is your Wii U’s Home menu organised?
I’ve gone for a simplistic (and slightly OCD) approach, and shoved everything – bar system settings and the Wii menu – into its own categorised folder, in which each software title is arranged alphabetically.
PS: And while Nintendo’s tinkering with the Wii U’s user interface, why not get rid of that unsightly Nintendo TVii icon from the Home menu in regions where it does nothing but present us with an error message?
After almost a year since its launch, Nintendo of Europe has announced two brand-new colours for the 2DS console. On 7th November, the Transparent Red and Transparent Blue 2DS models will be available as standalone systems. These will later become available as bundles following Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire‘s release on 28th November. (more…)
Tappingo 2 isn’t very deep. There aren’t any unlockables, no stats to raise or levels to gain. It’s just a simple puzzle game that gets more difficult, bit by bit, as you progress. And it’s unnaturally fun.

Indie game studio Image & Form has just announced the third game in its SteamWorld series – sub-titled Heist. Having tackled the tower defence genre on DSiWare, and more recently explored the depths of vertical platforming in the critically acclaimed SteamWorld Dig, SteamWorld Heist is a turn-based strategy game based in space.
Following the events of SteamWorld Dig, cataclysmic events have forced the planet’s robot population to flee in their steam-driven spaceships, and the only way to survive is by heisting water and other resources from your enemies’ ships and bases.
Image & Form has said in the past that its next SteamWorld game would target a release on Nintendo 3DS first, before making its way to other platforms – as was the case with SteamWorld Dig – although SteamWorld Heist’s platforms, release date and price are unconfirmed at this point.
Fancy a look at some of the first character designs? It’s your lucky day!
As if we weren’t excited enough, Image & Form’s also released a short teaser trailer, available for your viewing pleasure below:Image & Form announces SteamWorld Heist for a Spring 2015 release Indie game studio Image & Form has just announced the third game in its SteamWorld series - sub-titled…
Cubemen 2 is a solid title for strategy fans, while also remaining accessible for newcomers to the genre. What it lacks in single-player content is made up for in its mass amount of user-created content and a kick-ass soundtrack. It’s sad to see the community is so small, but hopefully it’ll only continue to grow on the Wii U. Until then, buddy up and you’ll have a great time competing in the various game modes.
