Remember those awesome Japanese Mario Happy Meal toys we showed last week? Well now there are a bunch a video's confirming just how cool they are.

Regrettably, I've not yet had the privilege of playing Namco Bandai's Mario Kart arcade games. This has been especially painful for Mario Kart Arcade GP DX, which looks so damned good. Unlike its predecessors, this machine wo...
When Wii Fitlaunched, it kicked off the fitness craze in gaming for better or worse. Soon the Nintendo innovation (much like many of its other innovations) was being duplicated and improved upon everywhere. As motion controls became prevalent on every system so did fitness games. Nintendo attempted to keep up with Wii Fit Plus, which took the now embarrassingly bare bones Wii Fit and at least let you piece together a work out. It didn't really push Wii Fit up to the level of the fitness games around it, though.
Part of this was, of course, the fact that Wii Fit's idea of fitness is a lot more relaxed -- it focuses on stretching, balance, and core instead of working up a sweat and toning your biceps into Popeye levels of muscularity. The other part, however, was the fact that the game, for all its mini-game fun, just wasn't that robust in its overall fitness features. Wii Fit U aims to change that.
If Pokemon were real, how powerful would they be? Turns out, they'd be crazy powerful. YouTuber VSauce3 took a surprisingly in-depth and macabre look at three different Pokemon in X and Y that could definitely kill...

Mario and I go way back. Although I had dabbled in a few Atari games when I was younger, Super Mario Bros. for the NES was my first real game that I sat down and played from start to finish. Since then, I've collected and played every main series Mario game, adding a steady stable of all time favorites to my list. Why am I telling you all this, you may ask?
Because I want you to know that I have a basis for comparison for the newly released Super Mario 3D World for the Wii U -- so when I say it's one of the greatest Mario games ever made, I mean it.
Nintendo has a nice deal this holiday season for gamers in the United Kingdom. Register a 3DS or 3DS XL and a participating game between November 27 - January 13, and you'll receive a free copy of Super Mario 3D Land via eShop download.
Given the sheer quality of the applicable games, that shouldn't be too difficult to manage:
Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Bros.
Animal Crossing: New Leaf
The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D
Fire Emblem: Awakening
Luigi’s Mansion 2
LEGO CITY Undercover: The Chase Begins
Sonic Lost World
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
New Super Mario Bros. 2
Mario Kart 7
Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy
Super Mario 3D Landis a must-own for the system and, in my humble opinion, one of the first titles new 3DS owners should try out. That said, almost everything on this list is worth grabbing as well.
