There are always new reasons for people to believe we live in a world without merciful gods. Inspired by the unholy art of Kirby showing off human feet beneath his cherry red shoes, YouTube user and modder Lucky Jero has created a playable version of this Kirby abomination in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. It is undoubtedly disturbing.

Pikachu and Lucario Face OffAside from the Super Smash Bros. series, the words "Nintendo" and "Fighting Games" haven't been synonymous since the days of the N64 (and arguably since the SNES). With the vast majority of releases in the genre landing on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, fighting game fans have not had much to satiate them from the Big N; however, Nintendo may be aiming to change this.

I'm not shy about it: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is my favorite Zelda game — which makes it my favorite game of all time. It's a bona fide masterpiece that checked off the big-ticket wishlist items I've been yearning for from the series since before Skyward Sword. Its massive overworld and inventive action-adventure-RPG "physics and chemistry" system offers exactly the kind of unparalleled player freedom that put the series on the map way back in the '80s.

It's a pity that's not true of its dungeons.
