It's hard to believe it's been a decade since my favorite video game documentary was first released. The King of Kong primarily focuses on Billy Mitchell and Steve Wiebe as they compete in one of video gaming's earliest and biggest rivalries—to hold the world record score in the Big N's original arcade classic, Donkey Kong. It's a touching story about perseverance and competition and the fight to make a mark on some small part of the gaming industry. Now, a decade later, The King of Kong may live again, but this time in a rather unconventional form.

If you haven't seen the documentary, I'd recommend doing so now. Once you do that, come back and see what director Seth Gordon had to say about this new project!

A few days ago, we reported that the upcoming ARMS Global Testpunch would not allow us to play as Twintelle, Byte and Barq, or Kid Cobra, leaving us only seven of the ten characters we know about. Though this information came from the game's official Japanese Twitter account, the demo's eShop description has provided us with contradictory information. According to this description, pointed out by Reddit user llethal01, all ten characters will be playable when the demo goes live this weekend.

Regardless of whether seven or ten characters will be available, make sure you get out there and take part in the Testpunch!

On Wednesday, Nintendo treated us all to a special Nintendo Direct focusing on their upcoming fighter, ARMS. During this presentation, we were introduced to three new fighters, all of which look pretty awesome. Unfortunately, these new additions won't be playable during the upcoming "Global Testpunch" demos. This leaves only the original seven (Spring Man, Ribbon Girl, Ninjara, Master Mummy, Min Min, Mechanica, and Helix) to test out.

I was really looking forward to trying out Twintelle personally, but I'll certainly settle for my man Helix. Who will you be playing as?

Wednesday morning, I awoke to the surprising announcement that Netflix was partnering to bring The Witcher to life through a new television series. Despite this exciting news, it appears some well-known names from the franchise won't be around to help with its creation. Neither CD Projekt Red nor Geralt's voice actor, Doug Cockle, are involved with the production at all. While this might already cast doubts in some minds as to the quality of the series, it's still way too early to tell.
