Here's a question: why does Peach have to wear tights to ice skate while Bowser gets to go bare-bottom? They have lots of dumb laws over in Sochi. Maybe a 'dinos must not wear pants' law is also in place.

We learned from this morning's Nintendo Direct that for the first time ever, anyone from registered friends to random folks around the world can play in online matches (via broadband internet) in a Mario & Sonic Olympics game.  Ski Cross, Snowboard Cross and Short Track Speed Skating, and a combo Dream Event make up the four online-compatible events. What's cool is that every time you earn a medal in online events, you also earn points for your home country. Just like the Olympics. Or a World War.

Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games launches on Wii U on November 15. A downloadable eShop version will be priced at $49.99, and a Wii Remote Plus store bundle will be available for $59.99.

The 2 on 2 Gundam vs. Gundam series is as big in Japan as that full-scale Gundam model in Tokyo. It's also big on the Destructoid Forum, in that one Gundam fan keeps explaining how it's the best fighting game and tries to get...more

You know, Dragon Age: Inquisition's box art is pretty cool

It's rare that videogame cover art can energize me enough to want to write about it (unless we're talking the oft-excellent fan-made stuff), but there are exceptions. Not to oversell you on Dragon Age: Inquisition's cover, or anything. It's good! Better than expected coming off of Dragon Age II, certainly. Let's hope that rings true for all aspects of the game.more
