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.

SteamWorld Heist's first screenshot leaves me wondering

While I tend to get annoyed when studios put out a lone screenshot, I can tolerate the practice depending on the circumstances. Image & Form doesn't have much in the way of assets for SteamWorld Heist, its turn-based foll...more

Particulars explores the subatomic world next month

I always appreciate seeing science represented in games, outside of the typical "heroes need to clean up the mess these mad scientists made" trope. Videogames can be so powerful as tools for learning, and that potential is s...more
