Old mascots never die: they just get ever-fancier legacy tributes. Earthworm Jim may have reached the "HD rereleases" stage of his career as a once-ubiquitous character, but that's as good a time as any for a really proper-looking action-figure treatment...
Future Publishing Australia is home to several of the country's biggest gaming and technology magazines. Our portfolio includes Official Xbox Magazine, PSM3, Official Nintendo Magazine, T3 Australia, and Official Windows Magazine. And we'd love to receive your feedback.
Wonder what hundreds of developers thought were the best games of 2011? We've got the nominees right here...
Remember the SNES sequel to Nintendo's B-list NES hit, Kid Icarus? The game's lush colors, chipcore soundtrack and challenging gameplay earned it a place in a generation's hearts - or they would have, if it had existed. But now it does...
Remember Mega Man? He's back, in app form! Yes, fine, technically Mega Man X is a different character - but listen, they both jump around, collect powers and fight evil, amusingly-themed robots. Mega Man fans will take what they can get. And what they can get today (in Japan, anyway) is a touch-controlled port of the franchise's 1993 SNES debut...
First off, here's the good news: Shigeru Miyamoto still works for Nintendo. The bad news is that he's taking a simpler position within the company. Instead of overseeing the biggest titles for the dev, from now on he'll be working on smaller projects and letting others oversee the huge franchises he helped create...
Square Enix's Final Fantasy VI will be released on PSN this week as part of the company's Winter of RPGs.

But it's not uncommon for those working in the videogame industry to band together for a charitable event to help those in need. Novum Initium is the latest benefit album dedicated to working musicians who struggle to make ends meet due to illness or disability.
One of the first gaming magazines to hit newsstands, GamePro, is reportedly closing up shop. After over 20 years of producing monthly magazines (and a recent switch to a quarterly format) and over ten years of running its website, the outlet will be ceasing its magazine production and closing down its site completely. While most of the editorial staff is to be laid off, some will apparently be retained in order to help GamePro Media in "refocusing its US business exclusively on its growing custom publishing and solutions business."..
Tales Studio, the independent developer responsible for the Tales series of RPGs since 1995's Tales of Phantasia, has been closed by parent company Namco Bandai. But Tales fans can take comfort in the fact that upcoming titles in the series haven't been cancelled – however, with the 25-year-old studio absorbed by Namco Bandai, the future of the series is for now in-house...
