The Binding of Isaac Rebirth

Ron Gilbert looking to buy back Maniac Mansion, Monkey Island from Disney

You'd think this would be a simple deal to do. Disney is done making games, so why not give the original series creator back his IP? I bet Disney really drags their feet on this one.

SEGA teases new Sonic game in the works

I'm biting this one hook, line and sinker. I believe SEGA when they say they're working on something good. I really believe they'be realized the error of their ways. Can't wait to see what the Blue Blur does next! Thanks to Megajacob for the heads up!

NECA reveals TMNT/Foot Clan figures based off classic TMNT arcade game

The TMNT arcade game was and is one of my favorite arcade beat'em-ups. It also received an NES port that was pretty damn fantastic and even included a new level! Now NECA is honoring that game with a line up TMNT figures that are styled upon that classic design. Even the boxes are going to be based off the imagery seen on the character select screen. These figures go up for preorder soon and are a San Diego Comic-Con exclusive.

3Souls - co-op footage, details and launch period

We would like to share some updates about our indie game 3Souls, with the introduction of the Co-op mode.

This mode will be able to be activate it during the entire game. By doing so, you will add another player to get the control of the character (Nelesa in the first episode) and control her steps through the platforms with the Wii Remote or Pro Controller. The second player, will remain with the Wii U GamePad to stay in charge of the soul, informing of the thoughts and feeling of the character, and connecting to the portals of the world to be able to solve the puzzles of the game with the features of the Wii U GamePad.

This will be perfect for those who are not really good at platform and prefer the puzzles, or the other way around, sharing the experience of the game with a friend.

It will also show a different way of enjoy the game, forcing you to coordinate with the other player that knows the information on where you jump or where to go, information that you can only obtain on the Wii U GamePad.

We would like also to inform that the first Episode, Nelesa, its already in the Lotcheck process. We are aming them to launch between the end of June and the beginning of July.

Nintendo seemingly forgoes booth at GDC 2017

It's a bit early to say confirmed, but the current booth floorplans for GDC 2017 lack a traditional Nintendo booth. This actually isn't too surprising, considering how Nintendo passed up traditional booths at the last two GDC events. Also following a trend from the last 2 years, Nintendo has grabbed 3 meeting room spots at the show. In other words, they'll be attending GDC for meetings, but won't have a booth to display content.

Shadow of the Eternals teaser trailer reuploaded by Quantum Entertainment

Looks like Shadow of the Eternals is still alive in some way. Quantum Entertainment just re-uploaded the trailer to their official YouTube channel, as seen above. When we have more info on just what's going on with the project, we'll be sure to fill you in. Thanks to Trojanhorse711 for the heads up.

A look back at the Virtual Boy and how it came to be

Did you know that the tech behind the Virtual Boy was shopped around to Mattel, Hasbro, and Sega before it eventually landed at Nintendo? Those three companies turned it down, but a demonstration of a tank game to Gunpei Yokoi proved to be key in getting Nintendo to hop on board with the idea. Obviously now we know the move to the Virtual Boy was a misstep for Nintendo, but if you want to see things got to that point, check out the exhaustive feature on the entire process below.
