"Disney Infinity" is probably the last Disney video game we'll ever need. Really, the folks at Disney Interactive absolutely nailed what the Magic Kingdom, as a whole, is all about -- imagination, wonder, and fun.

That said, if you're a parent or a Disney fanatic, prepare to feel it in the wallet.

This just in; the upcoming "Sonic Lost World" for the Wii U will have a special edition that can only be obtained via pre-ordering. The Deadly Six Bonus Edition as it's called with include a code that can used to download the NiGHTMARE DLC.

101

When you get down to it, game reviews are just someone's two cents, which can be complex and even imperfect sometimes. But those opinions are often represented in the form of numbers, which are supposed to be simple and absolute.

As such, a game's success or failure is often contingent upon its Metacritic ranking, which is the thorn of virtually every game developer and publisher out there.

Hideki Kamiya, of Platinum Games, is one such person who is not a fan. He has a new game coming out, The Wonderful 101, and even though it's been getting fairly strong reviews (in Japan's Famitsu it scored 39 out of 40, which is quite the feat), he still thinks review scores suck.

But the good news is that the three different versions of Street Fighter 2 that came out for the SNES is available, via the Wii U Virtual Console.
