x15-toronto_690x345 When trolling around the show floor at Microsoft of Canada's X15 Xbox event in Toronto this week, I stopped in to play the new Skylanders game from Activision.

New Splatoon Content Worth It

splatoonlogo If you've moved on from Splatoon it is time to go back. The August update added tons of new content to the game, but most importantly, the level cap was raised from 20 to 50. Overall, for free DLC, there really is not anything to dislike in this latest update.

Rare Replay: Worth Every Dollar

Quiet Summer equals Big Fall? Nintendo Fans Hope So

Nintendo-WiiU-Preview_0015_DxO_690x460 Outside of Splatoon updates, Nintendo has done very little these past few months. Most people would come to the conclusion that their E3 press conference left a lot to be desired, and very little in way of new titles this summer has made few people forget that.
