Review: Avo!

Avo! is a bizarre, interactive cinematic experience. It's kind of like watching television, but you control where the main character moves and what objects they interact with. Almost every aspect of its presentation is live action with the ...

Review: The Haunted Island, a Frog Detective Game

The Haunted Island, a Frog Detective Game is wholesome in a way that you don't often see in this industry anymore. The entire presentation has an uncanny children's book vibe to it, and everything feels slightly “off” in all the...

These tiny Nintendo Switch cases are adorable

The Super Mario 3D World OST cover is the BEST THING EVER

Super Mario 3D World is an absolute blast to play

I played Super Mario 3D World at E3 this past year and for whatever reason it just didn't interest me at all. Yeah, it's neat and it's about time they made a 3D Mario game with mulitplayer, but the demo made it feel like yet another New Sup...

Super Mario 3D World is so catty

No, it's not Galaxy 3 -- and I would have been upset if it was. Rather, Super Mario 3D World is taking the 2D-3D hybrid platforming of Super Mario 3D Land on 3DS, incorporating the multiplayer chaos of New Super Mario Bros. Wii and U, and s...
