    Mario and friends are back for their 6th installment in the Mario Tennis series, and unfortunately the series has taken one too many steps back in this new 3DS title from Camelot. Mario Tennis Open has you playing through a plethora of tournaments as your favorite characters from the Mario Universe in an attempt to grab the much sought after trophy at the end.

  • Review: Paper Mario Sticker Star

    The next installment to the much loved Paper Mario series has finally arrived, and this time it has found its home on the 3DS. Paper Mario is an interesting concept, it takes the underlying Mario formula, makes everything out of cardboard and paper (essentially 2D) then makes it a 3D Mario game with a turn based battle system. It is a formula that has had some slight tweaks over the years, an... more.

    Mario has been jumping around like a maniac for over 25 years now, and boy have we loved him. Mario is so big in fact, that when you look at the numbers, people who play Call of Duty are actually a minority in the gaming world...needless to say, this fat Italian plumber is a popular icon. Once again Mario is back to save the kingdom, defeat the dark forces in his way and get the girl...but is this... more.

    Yes, the year (not the world, please) is finally coming to an end. Have you enjoyed your games this year? Have you gripped your joystick for the ones that really stands out among the hundreds of thousands games out there? As I always try to work on the better options out there, actually enjoying every game in the market isn't an option. I feel responsible, then, to write something about it - how t... more.

    Ubisoft has today released some videos "detailing" the voice acting behind two characters in their new game Far Cry 3. These characters, Vaas and Doctor Alec Earnhardt, are just the tip of the crazyland iceburg that is the tropical island featured in the game. Making it seem as if they literally pulled these actors straight from the world of nutjobs, they show just how crazy these people are. Vaas... more.
  • Review: Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse (X360)

    Ah, Family Guy. Debuting on television back in 1999, the show is still running strong after a revival in 2005 brought it back from cancellation. But, in the realm of video games, it's struggled to find the same support. Both the game from last generation and the MMO haven't really turned heads, and the Xbox/PlayStation 2 received fairly negative reviews overall. While not a AAA title, Family Guy: ... more.

  • Review: All Zombies Must Die! (XBLA)

    A game can be fantastic and all the different elements of the game can come together and make magic. But if it's the same instance of "good" over and over again, it can get old. The funny thing about All Zombies Must Die! is that, at first, it seems pretty awesome. The art style has a cool cartoon-y look, the humor is chuckle-worthy, and the gameplay is simple but works. It's all great. But, after... more.

    Mario Kart has always been the pinnacle of arcade Kart racing, and MK7 follows the trend. The latest game has some new features, some revitalised old ones and a whole lot of content that could make this the best kart game in history. The single player portion of the game is split into 4 categories: Grand Prix, whereby you are racing in an 8 player race over 32 courses split into 8 championships... more.

    When thinking of a turn-based RPG, most gamers have the games of Japanese developers come to mind, with androgynous male leads, convoluted storylines, and hours of grinding levels to defeat the three-tiered mega-boss at the end of the game. Faery: Legends of Avalon bucks this trend and presents a turn-based RPG set in a fantasy world rooted in real-world mythologies, though from a much smaller per... more.
