Video Review: Xenoblade Chronicles X

They finally gave Ganondorf a trident in Hyrule Warriors Legends

Ganondorf wasn't given a trident in Hyrule Warriors for Wii U. That seems like a missed opportunity of sorts. It was his weapon of choice in some of the best Zelda games ever made. That misstep is being rectified with the 3DS' Hy...   read

Cat Mario is still adorable in his Super Mario Maker 8-bit form
