The patch will include several gameplay updates, including the feature that now collecting 100 rings will now grant the player an extra life. As well in the event of a Game Over, SEGA has doubled the amount of lives the player will begin with when continuing from 5 lives to 10 lives. Also the Indigo Asteroid, Crimson Eagle, Orange Rocket, and Black Bomb Color Powers can now be controlled using the analog stick and buttons. Finally there is a fix to a rare graphical issue that would sometimes appear during the pinball section of the Frozen Factory casino area.Posted in: Nintendo Tags: Nintendo Wii U, Sega, Sonic Lost World, Sonic the Hedgehog

Released today, BradyGames has compiled a wonderful companion to the Pokémon TV series. Sure, you’re probably thinking, you’ve got the internet so why do you need this book. It’s actually quite a great collection that focuses on events of the show making for an enjoyable book of memories. The book takes a broad view to show what the world of Pokémon from the start to Black and White is like in the TV series instead of being an episode by episode guide. This is more of a generalized guide that fills you in on characters, some past events, and the Pokémon of the various regions.
Considering it’s quite a lengthy hard cover book, and in general feels like a fan guide rather than a kids book, it’s quite a steal for just over $10 currently on Amazon. For those of us who have been into the series all these years, this is quite a treat!Posted in: Nintendo Tags: BradyGames, DK Publishing, Pokemon, TV Show, Visual Companion
Chucklefish, the developer behind the recent Terraria-like space adventure, has kept beta players going with lots of fast and furious updates. They’ve actually apologized for a slow update progress, which is surprising since they only released the beta on December 4th and this is already the second patch sent out today. Perhaps there was mention of an update sooner on their forums or such.
So far Starbound has been lots of fun! Unlike Terraria, you planet hop in your space ship you can beam up to from each planets surface. Things such as coal and wood can power your ships fuel up, allowing you to go out into a star chart and pick what planet you want to visit next. Also, planets are looping environments, so there’s no massive ocean blocking off either side of the map. Read on for (more…)Posted in: PC Tags: Beta, Chucklefish, Patch, Starbound, update

Telltale Games and Gearbox Software have superhero teamed up to bring you what could be a very interesting twist on the Borderlands franchise. Tales from the Borderlands was announced last night at SpikeTV’s VGX Award show and will be released in 2014.
