Yes, the demo's are hampered by one major problem: limits on the number of times you can play. Regardless, it is nice to try something ahead of release. This time around, the demo is for Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. There are a number of ways to get codes for this demo, outlined below.

Microsoft’s First Xbox One ‘Holiday’ Bundle is a Home Run

xbox_690x536 I almost - note I said almost - regret purchasing my Xbox One last month. I love Assassins Creed and probably would have bought the new Assassins Creed Xbox One bundle on day one. It is a fantastic value that should appeal to a number of people who are yet living in a world without an Xbox One (Who wants to do that!).

A few weeks after that, I examined two Mario titles I would like to see again with updated visuals. It has been a busy few months for Nintendo, and I've finally found the time to work on my Nintendo HD series once again.

Forget (But not Really) Smash Bros Wii U! Captain Toad is the Game You Want!

Captain Toad I'm kidding. Smash Wii U will be a fantastic title and completely worth the purchase, but I'm personally worried that Captain Toad is going to get overlooked since it will be released after a Nintendo giant.
