  • Thomas Was Alone action figures are a real thing

    Thomas Was Alone action figures are a real thing I haven't had the urge to buy blocks in... a long time, but these Thomas Was Alone "action figures" are testing my resolve. The Claire figure even floats, apparently, which sounds perfect for the tub. Yes, I'm a supposed adult in the market for bath toys. Life takes unexpected turns. If your next one involves dropping £20 on these plastic prisms, you best act fast, as they're in very limited supply. Official Thomas Was Alone 'Deluxe' Action Figures [Kerry Dryer]

    Shovel Knight headed to retail with a proper instruction manual Shovel Knight is one of those games that's so good, you want as many people as possible to hear about it, play it, and hopefully dig it as much as you do. To that end, some good news: Yacht Club Games is pushing for a retail launch on October 13, 2015 in North America and October 16 in Europe.

    Matches in Gigantic should only take 15 minutes I'm not much of a MOBA person, but I have really gotten into Heroes of the Storm as of late thanks to its snappy, streamlined design. Shorter matches are a godsend. I've also been eying Gigantic, Motiga's super pretty third-person take on the genre. It showed well earlier this month at E3. Similar to Blizzard, the team is targeting quick matches. "15 minutes," said creative director James Phinney, formerly a designer on StarCraft and Guild Wars. "That's a goal of ours."

  • Why you can't be female in The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes

    Why you can't be female in The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes In an interview, The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes director Hiromasa Shikata explained why players can't choose to be a female character. "The story calls for this sort of legend/prophecy where heroes will come together to help solve a problem," he told IGN. "And in that, they are male characters. So, because the game is set with that as the story background, you cannot choose a gender; you are a male character." When further pressed on the issue, Hiromasa stated, "We do have a lot of female staff members who are playing this game and enjoying it. It doesn't seem[…]
