Indie Corner: Blues and Bullets Best Episodic Ever?

2869756-blue-and-bullets_129x129 A Crowd of Monsters wouldn't be my first thought when talking about a potential Game of the Year nomination. It isn't because they are not qualified or that they aren't talented enough. It is just that they don't have the resume of most GOTY candidates. I could be wrong, but this is Crowd of Monsters third game - previously they released a mobile title, and an endless runner that we reviewed called Clash of Titans.


Tony Hawk 5 Day one Update Bigger than Game

Game_Cover_Tony120x129 It is becoming shocking how bad some developers are messing up AAA launches. Fortunately, a few are able to rectify the problem on day one, but sometimes that doesn’t necessarily place confidence in their brand. Tony Hawk 5 is the latest game to be plagued by a issues that require a large day one patch. Tony Hawk 5 comes in at a low 4.6 GB when downloaded from the disc to the Xbox One or PS4 systems. When most games…


Mario Tennis Coming November

mario_tennis_ultra_smash_logo_560x346 It has been a while since we got a really good Mario Tennis title on a Nintendo platform. The last release on 3DS was lackluster at best; Nintendo has the opportunity to redeem themselves this November with the release of Mario Tennis. I had the chance to play the game at a Nintendo E3 Media event in Toronto, Ontario and I can safely say that we might be getting the next best Mario sports title!


Steel Series X100 Headset

SteelSerieslogo1_113x129 Not everyone has a hundred or more dollars lying around that they can spend on a gaming headset. Some people try to use cheap headsets or even earbuds and microphones that were packed in with their most recent cell phone purchase. Steel Series is attempting to change that by releasing a very affordable, 59.99 headset. For the price, there may not be a better budget headset on the market than the Steel Series Siberia X100.

animal-crossing-happy-home-designer-675x338_690x346 Animal Crossing has a large, dedicated following. While we await the next true Animal Crossing game, Nintendo is wetting our appetites with a spin off title that tasks you with decorating the homes that our good friend, Tom Nook, sells.

amiibo Cards Sold Out

amiibo-animal-crossing-cards_690x428 On the eve of the launch of Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, it appears as if Animal Crossing amiibo cards are sold out at almost every retailer, and those that are not sold out will have limited stock. What I'm basically saying is: if you don't go get your copy of the game the second the store opens, there is a good chance you won't get any amiibo cards.


Alpha Tester for Star Wars Battlefront says Game is Broken

2743161-5356_120x129 Developer Dice and publisher Electronic Arts are moving closer to the launch of the much anticipated Star Wars Battlefront title due out November 17. Today, rumors surfaced that the game would be available for EA Access members five days ahead of launch, on November 12th. Other, less impressive rumors, have also come out about the state of the game.


Book of Unwritten Tales 2 on Console

the-book-of-unwritten-tales-2_120x129 A few months back, we received a PC copy of the Book of Unwritten Tales 2. This was a fantastic point and click adventure title that built on the success of the original, and brought back memories of the good-old-days when point and click games were at their peak. When the development team announced the game would also be coming to consoles, I was skeptical.


Mario Maker Levels Continue to Impress

smm_cover_129x129 If you find a free moment, go to YouTube and search Super Mario Maker. You are bound to get stuck in that "just one more video" cycle as you look through some of the amazing levels that have been uploaded so far. This week, Nintendo in Japan announced on Twitter that over one million Super Mario Maker levels have been uploaded for others to play. This is an amazing statistic.


Disney Infinity 3.0: Fun in the Toy Box

Infinity-3.0_690x460 The Disney Infinity 3.0 play sets are excellent fun, and we will be reviewing each of those shortly. The Toy Box, however, is where players will experience the most fun and the most frustration. Despite a difficult learning curve, there is a lot to like in the Disney Infinity 3.0 Toy Box, even if it's just downloading and playing the creations of other people. Unlike other toy-to-life games like Skylanders, there really is an unlimited replayability with the Infinity franchise, a reason why ...
