Mario and Sonic 2014 Discounted on eShop

Which is quite appropriate considering the Sochi Winter Olympic Games are going on right now.  The deal is apparently active in both the US and Europe too, and gives you a nice 30% discount on the game’s price. But my opinion? Don’t bother.  The game’s apparently not that good to begin with, and the only real ‘decent’ aspect is supposedly the soundtrack (which can be listened to for free on Youtube or numerous other websites).  Just watch the actual games on TV instead, you’ll get all the enjoyment and none of the waggle controls.

Also known as Sonic Boom (yes really), Sega’s new redesign for the Sonic the Hedgehog series has now been shown with a game announced for the foreseeable future.  And oh boy are some Sonic fans probably not going to like the end result… Basically, they’ve aged up Sonic and the other characters and made them look like strange teen style cartoon characters in a way to make the new tie in cartoon show seem all different and interesting.  Just watch the video and see the ‘unusual’ change in the full post!

That’s according to this poster at the Nuremberg Toy Fair anyway, which lists the game alongside existing ones like Sonic Lost World and Mario and Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games as coming in the near future. It’s also multiplatform.  So in other words, it’s coming to the Wii U, PS4 and Xbox One.  Keep reading to see the evidence for yourself and some other random thoughts on this matter!

Super Guides in Classic Video Games Now?

Whether you like it or not, the ‘super guide’ concept (where terrible video game players can use some in game system to get invincibility in or plain skip difficult levels after messing up too much) is becoming rather prevalent in modern games.  But now, in a move which is at the very least a bit questionable, Sega is going one step further. They’re actually adding one to a classic video game.  As in, the 3D Classics version of Ecco the Dolphin has a Super Guide whereas the original didn’t.

Opinion; Five Ambitious Fan Projects Cancelled Before they were Done

Nin3DSNintendo ArticlesLeave a comment

When it comes to fan works (or just about everything free that can be found on the internet), an often depressing rule seems to be that the good examples are both extremely rare and 99.9% likely to be cancelled before they’re complete, and that the most horrible examples tend to somehow get further along in production or even finished. And so here’s an article to make you even more angry at the video game fandom.  One about five great video game fan projects that were cancelled long before their time.

Sega Teases Horror Game for October 29th

Nin3DSNintendo 3DS News, Wii U2 comments so far


Well, I think it’s probably going to be a horror game, I can’t see anything non violent/horror based coming from a sentence that starts with ‘[on this date] guts will be [blank here]‘.  Unless we’re talking the world’s most ridiculous over the top Sonic the Hedgehog game.  Or maybe the world’s first Mario and Sonic at the Olympics meets House of the Dead crossover. What will this game be?  What’s the picture they’re teasing?  Read on to find out…

Recently online, you may have seen a few articles talking about the possibility that the upcoming Sonic Lost World game had been delayed to November the 29th 2013 (thanks to the release date on the official site saying that).  But thankfully, it looks like there’s absolutely nothing to worry about!  Yep, someone working for Sega has confirmed the date is just wrong and will be changed soon.

Yeah, we get it.  We said it would a few weeks ago based on what we considered a reliable source (Nintendo themselves).  But now however, Sega has confirmed to IGN editor Rich George that said third title won’t be released this year and that the rumours mentioned before are false. Been busy but just re-confirmed with SEGA that the ‘third’ Sonic game in Nintendo’s three-game deal will not arrive in 2013. — Rich (@RichIGN) June 3, 2013 Sorry for the inconveniance to those who believed Nintendo of Germany’s PR the first time round. Are you disappointed about this? Source:

Like the look of Sonic Lost World or Mario and Sonic at the 2014 Sochi Olympic Games?  Don’t want to buy multiple Nintendo systems for whatever reason?  Well it seems like you’re now in luck, since Sega has confirmed that both games are coming to both the 3DS and Wii U.  Here’s confirmation from an IGN staffer on Twitter: Yes, SEGA confirmed that Sonic Lost World and Mario & Sonic Olympics are coming to 3DS and Wii U. — Rich (@RichIGN) June 3, 2013 Should be good, right? What version of these games are you buying?
