  • Stealth Inc. 2: A Game of Clones Review

    Stealth Inc. 2 doesn’t hide its inspiration from games like Splinter Cell and Portal. From the soft green glow of the clone’s goggles while crouching in the shadows, to the ever-present antagonist humorously berating you as you progress, the comparisons aren’t hard to make. But, thanks to its incredibly challenging puzzle design - buoyed by a variety of gadgets and brilliant progression - and its great implementation of Wii U-specific features, Stealth Inc. 2 doesn’t just differentiate itself from the games that influenced it; it stands out as one the best games available on the eShop.

    In Stealth Inc. 2, you control a squat, bulbous clone who is helping his more dimwitted clone brethren escape their dire fate. Exploring the sprawling cloning facility is a harrowing, rewarding affair thanks to the variety of gadgets - which grant abilities like hacking, teleporting, and even cloning - that continuously provide interesting new ways to overcome the ever-more difficult puzzles and enemies. In each new section of the facility, you’ll come across test chambers that introduce you to a new gadget and provide a variety of different challenges that require its use. With each test chamber you complete, more of that section of the facility becomes available, until, ultimately, you receive the gadget and are able to use it freely outside of the test chambers. In addition to that, each test chamber also features a leaderboard with the fastest completion times, providing impetus to replay them multiple times.

No More Balance Patches for Super Smash Bros. 3DS and Wii U

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS will not receive any future balance patches, series director Masahiro Sakurai said in a recent interview.

According to a translation from EventHubs, Sakurai told Famitsu magazine that he has no plans to adjust or balance the gameplay any further.

"If we were to do something like tweak characters' customized special moves, then there'd be no end to it," Sakurai said in the interview.

Check Out This Batman Cowl Replica With a Glowing Face

We are excited to present your first-look at Project TriForce’s newest collectible, a full-scale replica of Batman’s cowl based on the Batman: Arkham Origins video game.

Made of polystone, the product's dimensions are 26" H x 23.5" W x 24.5" L and it weighs in at 35 lbs., so it's a bit bigger than you would imagine. Batman is a towering figure in the game, so when getting a true-to-life replica of his headpiece, it makes sense that it'd be just as large. The marks on the cowl give it a nice battle-worn look -- you can't fight Deathstroke and not get a little scratched up. The glowing face underneath the cowl not only fills out the piece but looks really, really cool.
