PHIL

It was a long time coming. After Microsoft found themselves getting their butts handed to them on a silver platter in the battle for 1080p, 60fps games as well as falling far behind the install base figures month after month when the PS4 was cleaning house month in and month out, the Micro ‘S’ finally pulled through and scored a win against all odds.

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker Complete Wii U Walkthrough

One of the games that seem to have silently released onto the Wii U like a group of mafioso types taking over local restaurants and strong-arming the sous-chef into putting more onions in the ravioli, is Nintendo’s own first-party title, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker. With the launch of the game on the Wii U comes the inevitable need of a walkthrough for those who find themselves oftentimes stuck or just looking for an excuse to watch a little fat guy who can’t jump, puzzle-solve his way through floating levels in a mystical land.

Armikrog Gameplay Trailer Features The Return Of Claymation

Armikrog

Pencil Test Studios really has a serious gem on their hands with Armikrog, the claymation spiritual successor to the Dreamworks Interactive adventure title called The Neverhood. A new trailer leaked online and the developers – instead of going out of their way to attack, silence or censor their audience – went on and embraced the leak.
