This week's new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate song preview is in, and what a thrill this one is. Uploaded in the darkness and silence of the night (to us Westerners at least), a fearless new track comes by way of Nobuko Toda, known for her compositions so supreme throughout the Metal Gear series.

Gearbox's Aliens: Colonial Marines released in 2013 to infamously bad reviews. Despite a very promising demo at E3, the game ultimately released with low-quality graphics and terrible enemy AI. But just a few days ago, it was discovered that a number of the problems with the game's wonky AI were caused by a single typo in the coding. Because of this, Gearbox has found a way to make sure this never happens again: opening a totally real and certainly not at all fake copy editor position.

During E3 last month I got the chance to watch an extensive demo of Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion, followed by a short hands-on segment.

The high seas adventure launched today, but if you're not quite sold yet you can check out 90 minutes of Jake, Finn, and friends in action before making up your mind.

It feels like there's been a massive increase in video game movies in recent years, but they've been around for decades. Well over 20 years ago Capcom tossed their hat in the ring with the Street Fighter movie. Steven E. de Souza wrote and directed the project, which launched to generally poor reviews. There are numerous flaws with the movie, but as it turns out, de Souza was also dealing with a myriad of problems, including the film's star, Jean-Claude Van Damme.

Hideo Kojima has been tossing around the possibility of creating a movie based on his popular Metal Gear franchise for over a decade, and incredibly, it looks like there might finally be some progress on that front.

With each passing year publishers put more and more effort into securing the coveted pre-order. Getting as many fans as possible to whip out their wallets and sign up for a game months (or even years) before it will release boosts profits quicker and helps publishers gauge how many copies the game will sell overall. In many cases, a game will be announced with only a vague teaser and no launch window, but stores immediately offer pre-orders all the same. In Germany, this isn't going to fly anymore.
