Review: The 3DS Ambassador Certificate photo
Review: The 3DS Ambassador Certificate
by Jim Sterling

Nintendo is giving early adopters twenty free videogames from its dusty old vaults, and that's fine, but those hoping for something fresher and/or worth more than a collective five bucks were left disappointed ... until now!

We downloaded this hot item right away and gave it a full review. Trust us when we say this it's worth turning your 3DS on for!

Top ten games we can't wait for on Google+ Games
by Jim Sterling

Nick Chester, Dale North and myself are all patiently waiting for Google to finally roll out G+ Games in our respective areas. We cannot wait to play them, because we love videogames in all shapes and sizes.

While we got ourselves incredibly excited, we started to list out the titles we were most looking forward to on the hottest new social networking service. Some of them are already available at launch, but others might take some time to reach us. Have a look and see if you're as excited about these as we are!
