According to my Doctor Who calendar, the time of year where children are encouraged to support obesity by leaving cookies out for a fat burglar who magically fits in chimneys is almost upon us. I'm preparing by trying to make excuses so I don't have to spend too much time with my family and loved ones and I'll probably be buying cheap tat from someone's car boot. I'm merry, oh so bloody merry. The festive folks over at Nintendo are trying to get into the Christmas spirit with about the same amount of enthusiasm.

On December 4 Nintendo will be offering new bundles for you to put in stockings, wrap up in hideous wrapping paper and give to someone you feel a small amount of affection for. Or you can just get them for yourself, if that's your thing. The new bundles include a pink 3DS, because girls celebrate Christmas too, and either Nintendogs + Cats: French Bulldog and New Friends or Nintendogs + Cats: Toy Poodle and New Friends. The MSRP for the new bundles is $169.99 which is the same price as the standard 3DS, which isn't bad at all. And remember, kids, when you get sick of looking after your virtual pet after Christmas, don't flush it down the toilet.

Review: Steins;Gate

Time travel is infinitely more interesting once you leave the trappings of the TARDIS or any one of those familiar (some would say hackneyed) science fiction mainstays behind. Steins;Gate, the visual novel that inspired a ...more

Review: Putty Squad

Of all of the games to get a PS4 remake, you'd probably never put Putty Squad, an SNES game from 1994, at the top of the list. But here we are in 2014 with a full-on re-imagining, with more or less the same platforming mechanics that still work nearly 20 years later. The only problem is, System 3 Software has opted to charge $29.99 for a decidedly dated game -- which is a bit of a problem.more
