Mario and Luigi Paper Jam Set to Release in NA

Mario and Luigi titles have been one of my favorite Mario franchises. My other favorite franchise? Paper Mario. In my personal opinion, the last release for each - Mario and Luigi: Dream Team and Paper Mario: Sticker Star where somewhat of a let down. Dream Team was good, yes, but Sticker Star was pretty bad. Frankly, I had little hope for Mario and Luigi: Paper Jam. However, after playing it a few times at various Nintendo events, and watching a few Let's Plays on YouTube - the game has been out in Japan and Europe since December - I'm really excited for ...

Peanuts: Snoopy’s Grand Adventure

Very few games now a days are really kid and adult friendly at the same time. What I mean by that is, the game is easy enough for kids to play alone, and entertaining enough for adults to participate - or play alone themselves!

My four year old nephew can EASILY play Snoopy's Grand Adventure, with a little bit of help from myself. My six year old son? He's beaten the game already on Xbox One, and ...

Open World Games Need Dying Light Multiplayer Mechanics

Single player games are great, but often I find myself wishing I had a multiplayer or cooperative option when playing. Who wouldn't want to run across Velen with a friend in the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, or cross Skyrim with an ally or two? When we began our review of Dying Light on Xbox One, I reached out to the PR company and inquired about a multiplayer or cooperative mechanic. Apparently, this feature is not to be missed in Dying Light, so we spent considerable amount of time trying 4-player multiplayer modes as well as cooperative play.

Kojima Had Options

I fee like the title of this is just stating the obvious. Of course Hideo Kojima had options. He is a developing mastermind who has created some incredible and iconic franchises. The fallout with Konami really is disappointing, but it will be really interesting to see what Kojima does next with Sony. Kojima went into depth with IGN on why he choose to do business with Sony over other companies. Exerts from that interview are below, but you can read the whole interview at IGN.
