While I can't wait to get some of that sweet tanuki tail later this fall, one neat factoid that Nintendo announced during their 3DS press conference about Super Mario 3D Land is its incorporation of gyroscopic controls. Using the gyro, players will be able to scout levels and find secrets before actually diving in.

No video was shown of the new feature in action, so I can only imagine what it will be like. I'm hoping for a cross between the mini games in Super Mario Bros. 3 and Professor Layton to stock up on some shrooms. Though something tells me that may be asking for a little too much.

Thankfully TGS is just a few days away, so lets hope we don't have to wait till November 13 to find out.

Super Mario 3D World was designed with the New SMB crowd in mind

Having finally gotten a Wii U, my goal this week has been to play Super Mario 3D World and at least try not to burn through it too quickly. It's tough, though, with the promise of something new pushing me to continually do "j...more

No Mario Galaxy 2 on 3DS because Mario would be a 'speck'

Nintendo has revealed that it tested the possibility of releasing Super Mario Galaxy 2 on the 3DS, but had to nix any potential plans due to it being far too difficult to enjoy. According to the company, Galaxy 2's graphics m...more

Review: Super Mario 3D Land

Always bet on Mario. It's a given that Nintendo rarely fails when dealing with its mustachioed mascot, and there's no denying that when a Nintendo system is in trouble, everybody's favorite plumber can bail it out.  The ...more

Tanooki tails are all the rage in Super Mario 3D Land

Super Mario 3D Land is a hybrid sort of affair that has beautifully merged the gameplay style of a 3D Mario game into the style of an old school Mario-like adventure. The levels are open, open enough to make it see...more

It looks like Bravely Default sold one million copies

Bravely Default was one of my favorite games of this year (a lot of people don't believe it when I say that, but it came out in 2014 in the US), and I'm glad a sequel is already in the works. It appears as if said sequel will...more
