Bringing a violent title like Devil’s Third to the kid-friendly Wii U seems like a strange decision for Tomonubu Itagaki but he says he isn’t worried about the game finding an audience on Nintendo’s platform.

At E3 I sat down with Itagaki and did an interview, facilitated by a translator (which was a new experience for me), and discussed his upcoming game


Nicole of the Cake Haute Couture bakery in Bunbury, Western Australia made this beautifully geeky classic arcade game cake at the request of Dimity, a bride-to-be whose fiance, Stephen, loves old school games.

Nicole has been making custom wedding cakes since 2007. Visit the Cake Haute Couture website to check out more of her wonderful creations.

As a result there is ridiculously legitimate anger and frustration.

If you’ve been hoping Ubisoft Montreal’s timely open world epic, Watch_Dogs, would define “next-gen” gaming, then you’ll be very disappointed with the game.
