Mario & Luigi

Everyone already knows the tale of how Mario and Luigi got their mustaches, but since the days of "Donkey Kong," the Mario Bros. whiskers have taken a backseat. However, in the upcoming 3DS title, "Mario & Luigi: Dream Team," the development team behind the game decided to give Luigi's mouth brow a bit more screen time. This time around it's not just to highlight his Italian nose, or because Luigi's long and luxurious 'stache is a site to behold, it's actually integral to the game itself. Read More...

3dsxlblack

What might be one of gaming's worst kept secrets in recent weeks has finally been made official: an all black version of the Nintendo's fun-sized 3DS XL is indeed coming to the North America.

It'll be out on August 11th in the US, the same day as Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, Nintendo tells us.

Most saw this coming, thanks to leaked circulars that has advertised an all black iteration of the hardware for weeks now. Anyhow, this is certainly good news for those who have not been fond of the color choices thus far.

Though the one color that discerning 3DS fans want the most is an all white system, but Nintendo has made it clear that it ain't happening anytime soon. With the reason given that white colored hardware doesn't sell in North America.

NiNoKuni

Best Buy is currently throwing a back to school sale, with the idea being that it'll help prepare the student in one's family for the fall by equipping him or her with the latest tech.

And true, one can see a brand new laptop or cell phone becoming a valuable aide in class, but for whatever reason, video games are thrown into the mix, which seems a tad bit counterproductive.

But who cares; the most important thing is that it's a chance to score some decent games on the cheap. The entire selection can be found on Best Buy's website. Though standouts include God of War: Ascension, Ni No Kuni, Modern Warfare 3, and the Walking Dead, each for just $20.

Though act fast; the deals are only valid till this Saturday. At that point, it leaves you exactly one month to beat everything until classes officially start.

attackofthefridaymonster

If you're into giant robots and giant monsters beating the crap out of each other, you no doubt saw and enjoyed Pacific Rim. You may have also given the official video game adaptation a spin and quickly discovered that, like virtually all games based upon movies, it's not very good. Thankfully, Attack of the Friday Monsters hails from Japan, where they happen to know a thing or two about mecha and kaiju.

Actually, it lacks the former, but is filled to the brim with the latter. Also, you don't actually play as any kaiju, but instead are a distant observer. Which might sound a bit lame, but the key difference between this and the Pacific Rim adaptation is that it's a actually a good game. Plus the premise is fairly novel; you play a kid who lives in the outskirts of Tokyo, circa the 1970s. It's a tribute to the simpler days of childhood, if one's youth was spent in an alternate reality in which big monsters appeared in one's backyard every Friday afternoon to engage in combat.

It's been almost six years since defense attorney Phoenix Wright’s last case in a virtual court of law, so anticipation for the next Ace Attorney game is fairly high to put it mildly.

Though fans will discover that much has changed since. And not just the fancy 3D visuals, but a decidedly harder edge as well. As such, the game will be rated M for Mature by the Entertainment Software Rating Board, as opposed for the T for Teen rating that previous installments have all received.
