Iwata Asks has been a great way to find behind the scenes dirt on all our favorite Nintendo games, since day one. But the most recent edition, which centers on the recently released Wind Waker HD, easily contains the greatest nugget of gold yet.

Get this: at one point, certain people, who constructing the original Wind Waker for the GameCube, thought everyone should be able to shoot lasers out of their eyes.

No, this wasn't a suggestion of some lowly intern who was immediately fired the next day, it was the idea of Shigeru Miyamoto and Takashi Tezuka, the main men in charge of the game.

In addition to revealing how upcoming PS3 games will be upgraded to their PS4 equivalents, Sony has also addressed how one will be able to play older games on the brand new system as well.

Many assumed that the Gaikai streaming tech that they bought in 2012 would help make it happen, but no official announcement had been made. Until now that is, courtesy of Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida at a TGS roundtable the other day.

Unfortunately, other than the thumbs up that was delivered by IGN, there's not a whole lot to chew on. Though we at least know that a selection of games will be available at launch, which will grow over time.

Alongside the launch of "GTA V", Rockstar released a companion iOS app called iFruit, which allows one to customize in-game vehicles and take care of Franklin's best friend, among other things.

Well, those with Android phones who wish to partake in mindless frivolities will have to wait for Rockstar to port the app themselves, and it's hard to say when that might happen.

Though one thing is for certain: no matter what, do not download and install the iFruits app that currently resides on the Google Play store, because it's a down and dirty, no good for nothing fake.

Last month we mentioned that Sony themselves will allow their customers to upgrade certain PS3 titles to their PS4 cousins, but we didn't know how. Well, now we do. And as hoped, not only is the upgrade fee nice and cheap, you also get to hold onto the original discs.

In "GTA V", there's a particularly rough and tumble part of Los Santos called the Hawick district. Which is, presumably, named after a real life town, located 40 or miles south of Rockstar North's Edinburgh, Scotland location.

Now, you'd think that they'd be at least amused to be given a nod by one of their neighbors, especially one who is responsible for one of the biggest video games of all time. Nope. Far from it.

Are you interested in the history of the Nintendo Entertainment System? Specifically, what games came out and when. There's Wikipedia for that, but isn't there something a tad bit prettier? So much so that it's suitable for framing?

Well, now there is, thanks to Pop Chart Lab's The Nebula of NES Games.

For the six or seven of you who still claim the "Panzer Dragoon" series as the best games ever (and it honestly is), and who have also been patiently awaiting word on its spiritual successor, some good news.

"Crimson Dragon" is finally coming out, for the Xbox One once again (it was originally scheduled to showcase the Kinect on the Xbox 360, until circumstances that are still not quite clear necessitated a change in platform), and day one.

That means November 22nd is when it finally soars into everyone's living rooms.

As previously noted, "Yakuza" is going back in time, back when gangsters carried around swords, not guns.

And everyone's first look at the game that takes place in historical Japan is brought to you by modern day Japan, courtesy of Tokyo Game Show to be exact.
