Farts 'N' Crafts: Watch Dogs Vs. Mortal Kombat Vs. Garfield

Here on Farts 'N' Crafts, we tackle a lot of hard-hitting issues. And by hard-hitting issues, I specifically mean "bodily fluids," which is almost ironic considering the show's title. We've done dog feces, we've gone hedgeho...

Goodbye Solid Ground, hello neon blindness

The above video is a demonstration of Goodbye Solid Ground, a game where the player rescues cats from a deteriorating environment by throwing them through a portal. It should probably have come with a seizure warning, or at ...

This week on Podtoid, Jonathan Holmes, Conrad Zimmerman, Andy Dixon, and Caitlin Cooke discuss their latest gaming experiences, including Conrad playing Awesomenauts, Caitlin's obsession with The Price Is Right, Andy Dixon's daughter's shocking rudeness, and Jonathan Holmes' landlord's dying cat, and of course, dog maulings. Unfortunately, Max Scoville is MIA after heading south of the border to flee overdue child support payments.

Review: Muramasa Rebirth: Tales of the Nekomata DLC photo
Review: Muramasa Rebirth: Tales of the Nekomata DLC
by Chris Carter

Muramasa Rebirth is a fine upgrade to the original game, but there was one thing that didn't sit right with me. For whatever reason, someone decided to take the only new content that was created for the game (four new characters with original stories), and sell it as DLC rather than an extra.

It's a shame, because with a bit of extra content, Rebirth would have been an absolute must-buy for pretty much everyone -- even if you played the original Wii version to death. Having said that, if all of the DLC is as good as the first entry, it'll be worth picking up regardless.

Also, cats.

Every green star & hidden stamp in Super Mario 3D World photo
Every green star & hidden stamp in Super Mario 3D World
by Wesley Ruscher

I'm still waiting to get my paws (you see what I did there) on Super Mario 3D World, as I unfortunately had to pick at least one game to leave on my Christmas list or I'd feel the fury from my lovely girlfriend. 

But if you've been busy scratching away at the latest Nintendo masterpiece, and are maybe having a hard time locating all 380 green stars or the 85 stamps hidden throughout, don't worry the folks over at GameXplain got your back covered. Their latest video walkthrough points the way to every secret item in just about 60 minutes. 

Wow, that's like seven hidden items a minute!

Warning: If you don't want any of the game's locations spoiled, be warned that the video uses all in-game footage.

The Super Mario 3D World OST cover is the BEST THING EVER

Okay so I'm putting the cover art for the Super Mario 3D World OST below because there's a spoiler with the fifth playable character that was revealed yesterday during the Nintendo Direct. It's not really a spoiler, but appar...

Super Mario 3D World has the most adorable disc art ever

Just a little bit ago, IGN's Jose Otero tweeted out a picture of the disc art for Super Mario 3D World, and I basically had a mini heart attack after seeing my main man Mario featured prominently on it. We all know Catsuit Ma...

Super Mario 3D World is an absolute blast to play photo
Super Mario 3D World is an absolute blast to play
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

I played Super Mario 3D World at E3 this past year and for whatever reason it just didn't interest me at all. Yeah, it's neat and it's about time they made a 3D Mario game with mulitplayer, but the demo made it feel like yet another New Super Mario Bros. game. You know, the series that has been rehashed four times now if you count New Super Luigi U.

Technically those games are great -- don't get me wrong. And they're fun to play in co-op for sure, but something about them just never made me want to finish them. They didn't have the spirit of pretty much all of the earlier Mario games that made me fall in love and 100% each and every one of them.

I wanted to give Super Mario 3D World another chance though, and the hands-on time I got with the game yesterday has completely sold me on it. That spirit I was referring to before is undoubtedly present with the latest Mario game.

Scram Kitty is an anti-gravity war against mice in mechs

Super Mario 3D World is so catty

No, it's not Galaxy 3 -- and I would have been upset if it was. Rather, Super Mario 3D World is taking the 2D-3D hybrid platforming of Super Mario 3D Land on 3DS, incorporating the multiplayer chaos of New Super Mario Bros. W...

Me-OW! Gaslight Catwoman and Poison Ivy mean business

If you're looking for your weekly MOBA intake, look no further than WB Games and Turbine with their newest update to Infinite Crisis. You can take in all of Gaslight Catwoman's glory and ferocity in the above video. Her mainly melee skill set coupled with stealth abilities can make her a deadly opponent in any game.
