PS4 vs. Xbox One

The United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC) today reversed its Net Neutrality position from last year, redefining its definition of the Internet so the web can be regulated as a utility.

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse Flies onto Nintendo Wii U

Wii U GamePad

Nintendo has always done different things with its Kirby games. For instance, in one game Kirby has ridden on hamsters, and in another the lead character has been made of yarn (a la Sony's Sackboy, in a way). But for Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, which is now in stores for $39.99, the entire Kirby-based world has undergone a transition, as the game world is made entirely of clay. Not only that, but the control mechanics themselves have undergone a chance, as players control Kirby exclusively by using the touch screen … [Read more...]
