Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime will be at this year’s Spike VGX (formerly Spike Video Game Awards) to present a “new look at an upcoming Wii U game.”
It’s anyone’s guess as to what game they’re talking about, but we should probably assume it’s geared towards the typical Spike TV audience. NeoGAF is thinking we may be seeing new stuff for Bayonetta 2 or Super Smash Bros. There’s even a fair amount thinking we may see X.

Back in 2009, it was discovered that the CPU in Mario Party 2, when set to Easy, is so inept that a person could win by doing absolutely nothing.
The original video spawned several others, showing the brain-dead AI at work in other Mario Party games. The trend even continues in Mario Party: Island Tour which came out for the 3DS earlier this month.StevenNo comments
Versus matches in Puyo Puyo Tetris are fast. Scary fast.
In the latest trailer, you can see how junk blocks translate between games, and it seems like the amount sent for tetrises and chains is really high.
If this footage is anything to go by, a decent combo early on can end a match in seconds.
Puyo Puyo Tetris comes out in Japan on February 6 for the Wii U, 3DS, PS3 and PS Vita.StevenNo comments
Despite Rune Factory 4 being the best-selling entry in the series, it couldn’t save its developer Neverland from filing for bankruptcy.
The company announced on their website that due to a changing business environment and unsuccessful attempts to raise more funds, they would be ceasing operations.
It’s uncertain as to what exactly this will mean for Rune Factory 5 and the future of the series, but we hope that the people at Neverland will find a way to continue making games.
