Gardening Mama 2: Forest Friends ships to US retailers photo
Gardening Mama 2: Forest Friends ships to US retailers
by Conrad Zimmerman

Majesco has announced that Gardening Mama 2: Forest Friends has shipped to North American retailers where you may offer currency in exchange for a copy. 

Maybe it's just because I haven't played a Mama game since the Wii installment of Cooking Mama and have simply forgotten why I lost interest in the franchise, but I'm giving serious consideration to playing this. There's a seeming wealth of mini-game variants and other content, while Mama is coming off more adorable than ever. I love a character who makes failure entertaining in its own right, and her wrath certainly qualifies as that.

Review: Batman: Arkham Origins: Cold, Cold Heart photo
Review: Batman: Arkham Origins: Cold, Cold Heart
by Chris Carter

So far, the Batman Arkham Origins Season Pass has been a steaming pile of poop. Buyers have received some extremely underwhelming skin packs, and a piss-poor series of challenge maps for their cash, with the promise of another "story" addition down the line.

When I heard that said story DLC would feature Mr. Freeze however, I couldn't help but at least get marginally excited. As one of my favorite villains in all of Batman lore, it would be really hard to screw up a narrative involving the iconic frozen doctor.

Arc System Works' BloodRayne teaser is BloodRayne: Betrayal

Remember last week, when we mused on what a possible Arc System Works teaser featuring BloodRayne might be? Turns out it's just a Japanese release of WayForward's BloodRayne: Betrayal. Aw, shucks. I was hoping for something a...

Assassin's Creed: Unity will reportedly have a four player co-op narrative

The Assassin's Creed franchise has caught flak in the past years for annual iterations that only make negligible changes and improvements. If a rumor about a new mode is true, Assassin's Creed: Unity is set to provi...

Extrasolar does exoplanet exploration, but it is more than meets the eye photo
Extrasolar does exoplanet exploration, but it is more than meets the eye
by Darren Nakamura

When I was talking to one of the developers of Extrasolar on the show floor at PAX East, I said something that I now regret. "This looks like something I would really like, but might not appeal to a ton of other people." He responded gracefully, simply saying that they have a healthy number of players, and a good percentage of players see it through to the end.

To be fair, the presentation of Extrasolar in the Indie MEGABOOTH was intentionally muted. There, it was shown as a simple exploration game on an extrasolar planet. The player tells the rover where to go, and after a set amount of time it sends back a photo. The intrinsic value of that alone was enough to get me started, and I urge others to sign up for it now to experience it as intended. If you need further convincing, then keep reading. Prepare for minor spoilers.

Ayo, Snoop Dogg's Call of Dizzle voice DLC is alrizzle

I've spoken about it quite a bit in the past, but for those who don't know -- I love hip hop. Ever since I found my first Busta Rhymes mixtape on my playground at a young age, I was mesmerized by the genre. Naturally, I had to try out Snoop Dogg's new Call of Duty multiplayer voice pack DLC. I'm part of the problem.
