The much loved Kirby series is now 25 years old and Nintendo is keen to remind everyone of the lovely little pink blob’s lineage.

In a new video from Nintendo (shown below), it goes through all the major and not so major releases in the Kirby series, briefly finishing on the upcoming Switch game that was previewed at E3.

Annabelle: Creation opened with $35 million this weekend, which makes it the first breakout horror movie of the summer and (barring a Logan Lucky/Hitman’s Bodyguard miracle) the last biggie of the summer. They also moved Kingsman: The Golden Circle into September, but the date change also sent Paramount/Viacom Inc.’s Baywatch to Memorial Day weekend, Sony’s Life to March 24th and Warner Bros./Time Warner Inc.’s Annabelle: Creation to this past weekend, as opposed to its intended May 19th date.

With the release of a brand new book called The Dark Crystal: The Ultimate Visual History, fans can learn more about the herculean effort behind the film’s creation. It’s been printed twice, and getting copies has been fairly tough for collectors if they didn’t make it into the narrow release window.

The past few weeks, Niantic has released four of the five Legendary Birds from Gen 1 and 2 into Pokémon GO, and now speculation turns to whether the fifth will replace Zapdos when he disappears from the game tomorrow. But past that, there could be a reason we’ve seen Lugia and these three birds without Ho-Oh.

Prime Minister Modi’s Clean India campaign, open defecation and all that talk about building toilets: Is Akshay Kumar’s new film trying to sell us something more than a good time? It has also been declared tax-free in states ruled by Modi’s party.

Yet another major game release, that of Yo-Kai Watch 2: Psychic Specters, is coming out alongside the SNES Classic Edition.

So I find it baffling why Nintendo would choose to release a game such as Yo-Kai Watch 2: Psychic Specters at the same time.

If you enjoyed playing through Persona 5 earlier this year, then you will be happy to know that a new anime series is planned for release next year.

While Production I.G worked on the anime sequences in the game, A-1 Pictures has already had a crack at making a Persona 5 anime.

The Nintendo Switch Faces A Challenge In The Fall [0.17]

The Switch is doing well for Nintendo. We could already guess that based on how hard the thing is to find and how much everyone has been talking about it, but Nintendo's recent financials made things abundantly clear: the Switch is selling well, and the future looks good.

Hankering for some vintage gaming action? Hopefully these vintage re-releases, especially the HD renditions, will live up to their potential and deliver a modern (and much clearer) take on the classics.

A few years ago, I recall Spin magazine running a headline and story entitled “What The World Needs Now Is Axl Rose.” After watching Nine Inch Nails play what Trent Reznor referred to as the band’s first real show in three years closing out the FYF festival, it became apparent how much that is true of NIN, the perfect band for 2017.

Yeah, that seems like a pretty accurate state of the union account of the three years since NIN last put out new music and toured.

A new report says that Floyd Mayweather’s $3.3 Mill tax lien has been released by the IRS, even though he appears to still owe the IRS a whopping $29 million. Mayweather’s finances aren’t public, but many news sources have tallied the recent $22.2M tax lien, plus his still unpaid 2010 IRS debt of $7.2M.

It was years in the making, but the final collapse for Jagga Jasoos into Indian box office infamy took only a few short days, like a long-melting snowbank that cascades all of a sudden into a calamitous avalanche. It would easily displace that territory's all-time champion for box office mediocrity, the star-crossed stinker Gigli, a film whose name still elicits snickers 14 years after its infamous 81 percent second-weekend slide.

So, did anyone have Despicable Me 3 as the summer's biggest global grosser in their betting pool? Universal/Comcast Corp.'s Despicable Me 3 continued to crush it overseas while doing pretty okay in North America as well.

In my recent review of Gundam Versus, my main concern for the game’s Western release was whether it would receive an open beta. I also manage Mecha Damashii and do toy reviews over at hobbylink.tv.

The result was correct but the hearing was astonishing. His only job during the parole hearing was to come across as contrite, repentant and apologetic.

And every chance brought forth a noble knight. We are introduced to multiple characters who serve as our surrogates to guide us across each battlefield, and in every case we feel emotionally and viscerally a part of the experience as much as is human possible by observing such things from afar.

Apple iOS 10.3.3 Has Two Nasty Surprises [0.05]

One of the more infamous is a bug which stops users from clearing their Safari browsing history and data. But iOS 10.3.3 is widely expected to be the final release of iOS 10 before iOS 11 debuts soon alongside a radically redesigned iPhone 8.
