    Review: Neko Atsume HouseA couple weeks ago I brought up the New York Asian Film Festival, due to the fact that something related to video games was in its line-up this year.

    The Video Game Movie Equivalent Of “Manos: The Hands of Fate” Is A Wonder Boy Adaptation You Had No Idea ExistedForget the live action Super Mario Bros, forget both live action Street Fighters, and forget every single vehicles that Uwe Boll has helmed: 2010’s Wonder Boy is unquestionably the worst video game movie ever produced.

    It’s Like Street Fighter 2 Infused With Super Time Force… Or Something Like ThatThe above, spotted over at meldowiseau, introduces an interesting fight game mechanic that allows one to get an assist from one’s self; the character helping you out is the one you’re currently controlling… but from a few seconds earlier.
