Everyone plays simultaneously in multiplayer
Mar 26
Mario Golf: World Tour features four player multiplayer via online, or local play with just a single cartridge. As it should, but you know the best part of all this? Everyone is playing simultaneously. You don't have to wait... read

Yoshi New Island photo
I landed on Yoshi's New Island & knew just what I'd Yo-see
Do you know what's fun? Making Yoshi noises. Come on. Do it. The tongue grab. The flutter jump. The ground pound. Such an animated dinosaur. Hamza and Dale are really good at making Yoshi noises. Yoshi's New Island is also fun. read feature

Steel Diver preview photo
3Das boot
In the middle of last year Nintendo announced it would try out the whole free-to-play scheme with Steel Diver, to the collective sighs of relief from various Nintendo series fans. Now we have details on just how that pricing ... read feature

Rusty's Real Deal Basebal photo
A minigame compilation with a meta game about haggling a dog to buy real games with real money
Leave it to Nintendo to make "free to play" weird. This time, thankfully, it's my kind of weird. Rusty's Real Deal Baseball is not a baseball game. Rather, it's a compilation of baseball-themed minigames. There's a hitting mi... read feature

1001 Spikes photo
This is shaping up to be one of my favorites of 2014
Aban Hawkins & the 1000 Spikes was a great concept. It launched way back in 2011 on the Xbox Live Indie store for a whole dollar, and remains one of the best games on the marketplace to this day. But the folks over at Nic... read feature

A quick look at the new Mario Party for 3DS


Hope you don't embarrass easily
Oct 08
While some games in the Mario Party series are easily better than the others (*cough* Mario Party 2 *cough*), I think we can all agree that each one has been fun to play. Mario Party: Island Tour for the 3DS is no different, ... read

First hands-on at TGS
Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call is more of the same, but I doubt any Theatrhythm fan will be complaining about that. More music from more Final Fantasy games and more tapping action. More just-misses. More cramped hands. I can't wait. read feature

Pokemon X/Y preview photo
What kind of Pokemon are you? Why do you do the things you do?
Are you a boy or a girl? My preview of Pokemon X and Y last month left me plenty excited. There was a lot to take in: Mega Evolutions, a lunatic scientist, an extra dimension. However, the demo also left something to be desir... read feature

Better at one than the other...
Sega is showing off its new puzzle game Puyopuyo Tetris here at their already super busy TGS 2013 booth. As a fan of both games, I gave this cross-up a spin on the 3DS. Puyopuyo Tetris is also coming to the Vita and PS3 as we... read feature

Shantae photo
Third time's the charm
Tucked away in a corner below The Wind Waker HD and behind Pokemon X/Y at PAX is a small kiosk featuring Retro City Rampage and Shantae and the Pirate's Curse, both on the 3DS. Stop by if you have the chance. The games are bo... read feature

Pokemon X/Y preview photo
An insane scientist, goat riding, pet neglect, Mega Evolutions, and more!
Pokemon X and Pokemon Y are currently playable in Japan at the Pokemon Game Show. We got a look at the same hands-on demo, minus the 10 minute time limit and the assuredly hours-long line. The demo opens with you as a rand... read feature

The so-so Trials HD clone comes to 3DS
Back in February, PlayStation 3 and Vita owners finally got their taste of the motorcycle madness found in the Trials HD series that Xbox owners have been enjoying for years. Sadly, Urban Trial Freestyle just didn't seem to h... read feature

Skylanders Swap Force photo
Snakes shooting snake guns
Activision’s Skylanders franchise has always smelled of a money grab to me. Copperish, like the smell of old pennies scrounged up by hard-working parents so little Linda Anne can have all the newest and coolest Skylande... read feature

Not a regular game
Not to be outdone by its contemporary, Adventure Time, and the upcoming Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON’T KNOW!, Cartoon Network toon Regular Show is getting a long-titled game of its own, Regular Sho... read feature

Phoenix Wright photo
I have no objections
I'm a big fan of the Ace Attorney series but fell off the wagon somewhere between the Apollo Justice and Miles Edgeworth games, so it's exciting to see that Phoenix is making a comeback in Dual Destinies. The game takes place... read feature

Tonto, jump on it
Prior to the E3 festivities, Disney demonstrated the upcoming cash grab Disney Infinity to a room teeming with journalists. The focus of the event was on two of the in-game worlds plus the oft-touted Toy Box mode. The first w... read feature

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is a ton of fun


HULK LEGO SMASH!

I am so jealous of kids growing up this day and age. They have the coolest videogame consoles, the Internet, iPads, and now LEGO Marvel Super Heroes. Combining Marvel, one of the hottest movie proprieties right now (and not t... read

This game makes me grin

Nintendo is getting serious about eShop
If Nintendo has made one thing clear in the last few days, it's that they're dead serious about making eShop a real contender as the consumers preferred purchase outlet. To help them along the way, Nintendo is enlisting the h... read feature

Donkey Kong Country photo
Also makes heavy use of depth of field effects
By the time Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D is released, it will have been two and half years from the original's debut on the Wii. So what has changed in that time? Well, not a whole lot, and that's not a bad thing. Donkey Ko... read feature

Mario & Luigi: Dream Team photo
But I still love it anyway
I'm not the biggest RPG guy on staff, but I've enjoyed every single Mario & Luigi game to date. They're just so charming, and it's looking like Dream Team is no different, based on my recent hands-on time. The premise is ... read feature

New Link to the Past for 3DS focuses on vertical gameplay


Now Nintendo just needs to tell us more!
Apr 18
Nintendo announced a sequel of sorts set within the same world as The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, and I got to play it yesterday. Nintendo wouldn't tell us ANYTHING about the game, though. Nothing about how it fits i... read
Soul Hackers photo
Demon system is delightfully technical

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate photo
Slaying monsters in all sizes
Saying that Capcom’s Monster Hunter series has a passionate and loyal following would be a massive understatement. For nearly 10 years, Monster Hunter has captivated gamers and inspired many imitators. After months of k... read feature

Luigi's Mansion 2 photo
We went hands-on with the ghostly new mode
Luigi's Mansion launched with the GameCube to little fanfare, oft forgotten by all but its most ardent fans. When news of a 3DS Luigi’s Mansion dropped out of the blue, it reinvigorated this base, but news since has be... read feature

Project X Zone Preview photo
There are many sexy, chiseled muscles to look at, too
Apparently, nearly a decade ago, Namco and Capcom teamed up for the crossover, turn-based SRPG Namco x Capcom. Don’t ask me how they decided who would get first billing. A coin flip? A Japanese game show? Similarly, don... read feature
