New Super Mario Bros. U - Mario on launch day
Looking Forward this month has a theme. In anticipation of the release of Nintendo's eighth generation console, Wii U, I will be covering three different Wii U games in the coming weeks - and all of them are launch games. First, we have New Super Mario Bros. U, which is the premiere title for the system when it releases on November 18th.
In case you haven't been keeping up with all the latest news on New Super Mario Bros. U that has been revealed by Nintendo since E3 2011 when it was revealed as New Super Mario Bros. [...More
New Super Mario Bros. 2 [ Review ]
Mario has been Nintendo’s mascot and trusty cash cow since virtually his introduction. With games and merchandise in the dozens, Nintendo has been milking the Mario franchise for all its worth, and with fan reactions being as it was – and in fact gaining new fans with each release – this approach does not show any signs of slowing down.
Mario and its beloved cast of characters have also been around the block in its several decades of existence, whether it be in racing, playing tennis, or fooling around with each other in a variety of quirky party games. [...More
Super Smash Bros. 4 Wishlist
Super Smash Bros. started on the Nintendo 64 and was an instant hit. It was a brilliant move to take some of the most famous and popular Nintendo characters and throw them into a fighting game together. Smash Bros. became a system seller, and would prove this fact when millions of gamers went out and bought a GameCube for the sequel, Super Smash Bros. Melee, and for the third game in the series, Super Smash Bros. Brawl on the Nintendo Wii.
We get a new Smash Bros. game every generation, with only one game released for each system. [...More

LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes [ Preview ]
I've had a love/hate relationship with the LEGO games. I found the original LEGO Star Wars a blast, the second one a disappointment, and I thought the Indiana Jones games were just okay. Harry Potter's attempt at a LEGO game bored the hell out of me, and so, it's really been all over the place. Nevertheless, I've played the demo for LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes on the Nintendo 3DS, and I just have to say that I came away impressed and excited to get my hands on this game in the coming weeks.
The demo begins by throwing you [...More
E3 2012 Report Card: Nintendo (New Super Mario Bros. and Mass Effect!)
Pikmin are all around us
Who is the most important person at Nintendo? Shigeru Miyamoto. Not only is he the mind behind gaming's greatest franchises such as Super Mario and Zelda, but Shigeru Miyamoto is one of the key people responsible saving the industry from the video game crash of 1983. Miyamoto is a bonafide video gaming legend. Starting their show with him was probably the best way to go about it. It got the crowd excited, it got me excited (...), and it got all the Nintendo fans frothing out the mouth, for sure.
The video in question showed Mr. [...More
Super Mario 3D Land Walkthrough [ Guide ]
The classic Mario games of old have one ultimate objective, and that is grabbing the flagpole at the finish line before running out of time. Super Mario 3D Land is no different. In fact, Shigeru Miyamoto, the game’s designer, stated that this 3D version plays more like its 2D predecessor. In this guide, you will learn the ropes on how to enjoy this latest Super Mario offering with the tricks, trips, and hints we provide.

Super Mario 3D Land [ Review ]
This year, the Mario series entered into a phase of its evolution wherein its 2D and 3D worlds were bolted into one gigantic adventure with Super Mario 3D Land on the 3DS. Players now have the chance to transfer from pseudo-3D level interactions to 2D side-scrolling. Although it might not introduce its fanatics to a truly authentic 2D/3D combination, Super Mario 3D Land is a fresh and gripping experience that arrives in fine form.
More players are still at a loss if the marriage is possible, but Nintendo has made it clear and have shown that this clever concept is possible. [...More
Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation (iOS) [ Review ]
So far, first person shooters for the iOS have garnered mixed reactions from mobile gamers. While it has been progressing well in terms of graphics and feel, there are still kinks to be fixed in general like controls and overall feel of the game. With the touch and tilt interfaces, there are definitely not the same as using a controller pad or keyboard and mouse. Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation seeks to close the gap for FPS games between mobile platforms and the bigger ones.
The gameplay is arcade and straight-up, with none of the tactical nonsense going on. [...More
Super Cyclone (iOS) [ Review ]
Whenever another twin stick shooter comes to the App Store, customers might either sigh in exasperation or just feel a bit excited since twin stick shooters are always exciting in gameplay. This game called Super Cyclone is another addition to the genre, and it does have a few things that make it a bit unique. You don't just fly around in empty space and shoot at whatever that moves; you storm your enemies in a good sense.
The aim of the game is to defend the stargate from waves of enemy ships until the level is finished. You'll find nests where [...More
Captain America: Super Soldier [ Review ]
I'll be honest; I've been on kind of a comic book kick lately. With multi-million dollar blockbusters based on superhero franchises released every summer, breaking records at the box office in the process, it seems that I'm not alone in that regard. Films like X-Men and Spider-Man popularized the sudden resurgence of comic books being very prevalent and relevant in today's pop culture, and films like Iron Man and The Dark Knight have only solidified the legacy of America's favorite heroes on the silver screen. And with every superhero film, there needs to be a companion game, so says Sega.

Captain America: Super Soldier
Written by Dalton "horror_spooky" Cooper
Copyright 2011 Dalton Cooper
Marvel is the master of the superhero movie. The genre was considered long-dead
after a multitude of flops in the 90s, but with the highly successful films
like X-Men and Spider-Man, Marvel managed to make superheroes relevant again in
today's film industry. They are currently planning a massive Avengers film, and
as a result, they have started building the team by giving them their own
films so the audience can become acquainted with the characters. Iron Man,
Thor, and The Incredible Hulk have all made it to the big screen. Captain
America is the latest Marvel hero [...More
Mario Super Sluggers: The Basics [ Guide ]
In Mario Super Sluggers, you can utilize four basic pitches. It is essential for a player to have more than one type of pitch to be unpredictable against the opponent. It starts with the Normal Pitch wherein the ball is thrown quickly without charging. In the Charge Pitch, you have to first pull back before throwing the ball when the two circles overlap. The third option is the Star Pitch, which is done by holding A+B as you are pitching, while the Changeup can be performed by holding A whilst pitching.
You must learn to employ deception by conditioning your opponent [...More
Half-Minute Hero: Super Mega New Climax [ Review ]
About two years ago in Japan, you would be looked at with surprise if you were playing Half-Minute Hero instead of Monster Hunter. The former is an unusual RPG game on PSP that has, what at first looks like, a primitive 8-bit art style; the latter is a hugely popular gaming franchise in Japan. Yet the quirky and original concept of Half-Minute Hero was a big hit in Japan, and the game has since gained a cult following outside the ‘Land of the Rising Sun’. Now, Half-Minute Hero is back and in high definition on the Xbox 360. [...More

Virtua Tennis 4 - Super Shot Tips [ Guide ]
Playing to your character's strength is the best technique to fill up the Super Shot meter in Virtua Tennis 4. For instance, if you are Andy Murray, the backhand would be your best shot. File up as many backhand shots as you can to fill up the meter in the soonest possible time. Remember that all players in the game have their own inherent strength. Look for ways on how to play as them by exploring and experimenting on your moves. However, do not depend on their strength all the time. Your opponent will easily notice what you are doing. [...More

Minecraft is a sand box game where you can build stuff from the resources you gather everywhere in the Minecraft world. This revolutionary game took the world by storm right from when Markus "Notch" Persson first released it in Java.

You build and create in Minecraft....everyone should experience this game at least once.
When you first step into the Minecraft world, you don't really have much on you but your own hands. There are day cycles, so you get day [...More

This guide (accompanied by two videos) will walk you through the fight with middleweight contender Ricardo Alvarez and your first step towards redemption.

Rift Combat [ Guide ]
The combat system in Rift is pretty par for the course to most MMORPGs.
When right click players will physically attack (also called auto-attack), using a ranged or a melee weapon, the target of their click. If they have a pet it will also send their pet to attack that same target.
Keep in mind that the pet will only attack the target your attack if its "stance" is set to "Defensive". There is 3 pet "stances" in total, the other 2 being; "Aggressive", where the pet will attack any hostile entity it spots, and is thus pretty much uncontrollable. [...More
