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.

Hot new screens from Final Fantasy XV and Final Fantasy Type-0 HD

Me? I'll take anything I can get from either game. I'm hype every single time something from the franchise comes down the line, so I guess I could be seen as somewhat unreliable when it comes to being fully critical. Oooh! Tw...more

Set the world on fire in Total War: Attila

I didn't throw out any guesses for what the next Total War would be, but if I had, wow, I would've been way off. Creative Assembly's next installment, Total War: Attila, will follow none other than Attila the Hun when it rel...more
