A few months ago, the Mother 3 fansite released their translation tools for fans to tinker around with. Almost immediately after the tool's release, user CrabbyRhys set out to polish the current fan translation and rewrite the entire English script. Of course, this endeavor will take an extremely long time, but it seems to be well worth the effort and wait. From the screenshots provided, the translation seems to be coming along nicely with lines like "Well that's a nope" keeping that Mother charm the series is known for.

Donkey Kong was released way back in 1981, so it comes as a surprise that people are still finding out new things about the legendary platformer.

The Vault of Glass is without a doubt the toughest mode in Destiny to date — it requires six high level players to work together in near perfect synchronization in order to progress through a series of increasingly difficult challenges. And that's just the standard version we're talking about. Add in the "Hard Mode" modifier and players will be lucky to make it halfway through the Vault of Glass unless the majority of their fireteam is leveled up to 30. 

Yet, that didn't deter one player from soloing the Templar on hard mode. Make the jump to see YouTube user Venom Nommy take down one of Destiny's most arduous bosses completely alone. 

The weekly hardware and software sales numbers from Japan are in, and it's a good week to be Nintendo! Like last week, Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate and New Nintendo 3DS continue to top the charts, and nothing else is even close. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate sold another 327,000 units, and New Nintendo 3DS sold just shy of 90,000 combined units (between the regular and LL models) in its second week, bringing its two week sales total to over 324,000. Elsewhere numbers were slightly down across the board, except for Vita which got a small boost from Chaos Rings III: Prequel Trilogy debuting at number four. Click below for the full breakdown!

Earlier this month, we discussed a video which definitively showed that the New Nintendo 3DS could download games much faster than its 3DS counterpart. In addition to this, it appears as though the New Nintendo 3DS is also quicker when it comes to loading games. IGN posted a video doing a side-by-side comparison of the two systems trying to boot up Super Smash Bros. for 3DS. First, they load the game from a cartridge, then again from the SD card. Using the cartridge as an example, there was a 20 second gap between the time at which the New 3DS reached the title screen and when the 3DS XL did! If there's one thing to take away from this video, it's that everything about the New 3DS seems quicker than the regular 3DS systems. We have the video here for you, so head inside to see how vast the difference is!

Can you believe that Naughty Dog has been around for 30 years now? The popular studio may now be known as the Sony-owned developer in charge of games like Uncharted and The Last of Us, but their history stretched back decades before those days. Originally called "Jam Software," the studio developed games for Sega Genesis and even 3D0 before hitting it big with Crash Bandicoot on PlayStation, and eventually joining the PlayStation family as first-party studio. A documentary celebrating 30 years of Naughty Dog is currently in the works, and you can check out a promo video by clicking below!
