Welcome to another look into the near future. May is the traditional start of the Summer Game Drought… and boy is the drought coming on strong and fast! This month holds the smallest number of releases since I started covering upcoming games in the ‘Backlog: The Embiggening’ series of articles. With two new consoles on the horizon and the WiiU deserving a

I have been a video game fan from pretty much day one - from playing Atari at my babysitters to happily opening my very own Nintendo one awesome Christmas morning. You have a lot going for you when you are young - boundless energy, an inquisitive mind and that feeling of invulnerability that only comes from not knowing any better. One thing you don't have: money. Unless you are amongst the 1% yo...

It has been almost exactly 5 months since the MeltedJoystick crew went through the elaborate, Iwata-inspired ritual for unboxing my shiny, new WiiU (dead pixel and all). Since November, the MeltedJoystick crew enjoyed co-op playthroughs of “

For those who have been keeping up with the blogs here on MeltedJoystick (and we thank those intrepid souls who have), you may remember that back in July of 2012, fellow blogger Nelson wrote about the recently-announced Ouya - an ambitious Android-based console. Well, flash forward to today and we kno...

I first got my PS3 slim a few years ago through a packaged Sony deal including a LCD TV, a free movie and game. I thought the PS3 was the perfect solution for a blu-ray player. It could even access a media server on my network, as well as something that could play games. An all-win scenario for a low cost packaged price.

But as of late, the one thing I used my PS3 the most for started failin...

Gazing out upon the game publishing landscape, where once there existed a scenic vista dotted with dozens of small developer/publishers that stood along the skyline like a forest of exotic alien trees, there now stand instead a few hulking, farraginous monoliths, spewing toxicity and death into the air. On the Western horizon of this landscape stand behemoths like EA, Activision, Atari (

When Disney acquired Star Wars - I knew there were going to be some changes coming. But are all these changes good? Scrapping plans for 3D re-releases to focus on the new films? Good! Scrapping the Star Wars: Clone Wars Series? Bad (I'm still holding out hope it will return on one of the Disney Networks). But nothing is as big as the latest announcement to come out of camp Disney.

In no uncert...

Capcom has always been a company that was willing to take an idea and ride it into the ground. Six ‘Mega Man’ games on the NES? “Street Fighter 2,” “Street Fighter 2: Turbo,” AND “Super Street Fighter 2” all hitting the SNES? Yeah, Capcom has been playing this game for a while and has really developed the skills.

But just when you thought their mastery of lumber-on-horseflesh c...

Ah, the Internet was made for April Fools Day - whether it is the eminent death of YouTube or Google Nose - it's always a good day to check around. But what about video games? No worries - there is plenty of fun to go around to everyone - including gamers. Here is a rundown of some of the best that April Fools 2013 had to offer:

As Nelson was so nice to point out in his previous blog - the WiiU has no games coming out this April. The launch was pretty weak already - an extended tech demo, a Mario game and zombies are a potent combination - but not potent enough to spurn that much interest. But for those hoping that the future will be bright for the WiiU - it's looking more and more like things are going to get worse befo...
