If you've ever wanted to be the best like no ever was, but couldn't quite win at Pokémon battles, then your chance may be now. One of Hasbro's most popular board games is Monopoly, which has had many franchise licensed versions to the point where it is a bit ridiculous. One addition to the ever-expanding editions of Monopoly is a brand new Pokémon Kanto Edition. 

Click past the jump for more information, including the release date and pricing.

Another day, another Assassin's Creed Unity video. This time, we get a little more information on the game's mechanics from creative director Alex Amancio, including the storyline, stealth, and assassin customization.

Nefarious is a game about being a supervillain. In it, you capture princesses, flee from heroes, wreak havoc, carry out evil plans, and panic and improvise when those plans go awry. Currently three days into its Kickstarter, Nefarious looks like it has a lot of potential. A team of relatively small-time, but experienced minds are behind it, perhaps most noteworthy being Brad Borne of Fancy Pants Adventures fame. It takes inspiration from Megaman and Earthworm Jim in particular, with a Saturday-morning-cartoon aesthetic and I can only hope a ton of idle animations. 

Their trailer is pretty cool. See if after the jump, and check our their Kickstarter if it interests you.

Looks like Steam isn't the only place to be getting the best deals on digital titles. The North American PlayStation Store has announced a Flash Sale that offers a ton of quality PlayStation 3 and Vita titles for only $9.99 a piece!

While it's no secret I don't always approve of all of GameStop's policies, they do remain my favored physical game retailer. During an earnings call yesterday, GameStop company president Tony Bartel explained that he still has plenty of faith for Nintendo's current console. In his eyes, for the console to really succeed it would need more first-party titles and better communication about the GamePad, and though it took a while, Bartel believes Nintendo is "going to do a great job on both of those."

This confidence likely stems in part from the upcoming Hyrule Warriors and Super Smash Bros. 4 releases, as well as things like Amiibo. More after the jump.

At Gamescom, a mysterious game called P.T. was revealed, and it was later announced that the game is actually a playable teaser (see? isn't that clever?) for a new Silent Hill game made by Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro starring Norman Reedus. P.T. itself is currently available on the PlayStation Network for PlayStation 4, and many people have made videos of themselves playing through it and deciphering its mysteries. One secret, however, was not discovered by fans. Hideo Kojima has revealed the answer. Click below to check it out!

This morning, Nintendo of America announced that 3DS Pokémon drawing tutor Pokémon Art Academy will be released in the North American regions on October 24th.

For those who have not been following the title, Pokémon Art Academy guides users through a series of tutorials on drawing Pokémon. Drawings can be uploaded to galleries on Miiverse to share work and compare it to others, or saved to an SD card to be printed out and shown off in person. Full details of the game can be found on the title's official site.

I thought that Mega Slowbro was the most hilarious, ridiculous, and outrageous thing I would see from Pokémon all year long. I was wrong. Fittingly, my new favorite thing from the Pokémon universe involves Slowbro's unevolved form, Slowpoke. 

The Pokémon Company has, for reasons completely unknown but greatly appreciated, released an official music video for Slowpoke. I would have thought this was some sort of ridiculous "YouTube Poop" style fan video if it wasn't for the fact that it's on the official Japanese YouTube page for The Pokémon Company. It's trippy. It's hilarious. It's the Slowpoke music video. Check it out below!

A week ago we reported that Japanese gamers have found Hyrule Warriors to be quite buggy. Developer Koei Tecmo promised that a bug fixing patch would be released as soon as possible, and apparently they've completed it. According to a tweet from the company, everything is ready to go on their end, and they are just waiting for it to be made available to the public. In addition to fixing the various glitches in the game, this patch will also add in a new mode. No details were given, but we'll keep an eye out to see what they've added in.

I have a lot of fond memories of playing Donkey Kong 64 growing up, but I don't quite remember it going like this. As you probably know, the game kicks off with a Kong-filled rap music video that's so hilariously bad that it's just plain awesome. A YouTube video has surfaced of that infamous rap being played on a corrupted copy of the game, and the results are even more ridiculous. I think I smell a record deal! Check it out below.
