There are many events I never thought I would ever witness in a video game. Mr T skateboarding in the park wearing a pirate outfit. Conchita Wurst and Spongebob Squarepants engaging in a rap battle dressed as chickens. Will Smith dreaming of being Miss Piggy’s key ring. All of these, and many more, happened within my first few days playing through Tomodachi Life. To label Nintendo’s new life-sim as weird doesn’t quite do its zany gameplay and scenarios justice. It’s simply the most bonkers game I’ve ever played.

So here we are. In our hands lies Nintendo’s latest instalment in the insanely awesome karting series that has defined the whole genre, and lead the pack since its inception on the SNES in 1992. Each game has been a massive system seller, and never have Nintendo needed that to be more true than with the Wii U version, cunningly titled Mario Kart 8. The jump to HD may have taken longer than anyone, Nintendo included, had expected or hoped, but the result is one of the best games in the entire series.

This year’s E3 is one of Nintendo’s most important. They need a big show, not just to help the ailing Wii U, but to reinstall confidence in the minds of the gaming public and media that they still have a major part to play in the industry. We’ve put our collective heads together to come up with the most wonderful E3 line-up we can dream up. Some are a real possibility, others are just whimsical fantasy, but at this stage no one outside Nintendo knows exactly what they’re going to show off at E3.

Ladies and gentlemen, the hype-train is now ready to depart from platform fun.

Capcom have released a remastered version of the NES classic, complete with that awesome theme tune. Sing along now: Life is like a hurricane, here in Duckberg. Race cars, lasers, aeroplanes, it’s a duck blur. Might solve a mystery, or re-write history. Duck Tales woo-hoo!

Announced alongside the Wii U, Traveller’s Tales first open-world LEGO game provided an early glimpse of what the new console was capable of and showed Nintendo was willing to court third-party support. It may have slipped from bolstering the Wii U’s launch line-up but has the extra development time helped its cause? Check out our review to find out.

Mario Tennis on the N64 was one of my favourite sports titles back in the day. Have Camelot conjured up another ace here, or is it a double-fault?

Has the 3DS launch really been a disaster?

There’s been a lot of negative talk about the 3DS launch of late. Critics in the media and gaming community have been lining up to slate the quality of the launch line-up, the high retail price (and the impending price-drop) and the subsequent dearth of quality titles that make full use of the console’s features. But a lot of the arguments being levelled against the console by these naysayers are completely ignoring the fact that these very same issues have plagued nearly every console launch in the last 15 years or so.

About this time every year, the gaming world is awash with wild and outlandish predictions of what we might see at the annual E3 expo.

Below is my list of predictions and things I want to see at E3.

I always see pictures of gaming related street art on blogs like Kotaku and GoNintendo but I’ve never been lucky enough to see one myself. Until recently that is. I randomly spotted this Mario while on a trip to Paris. It’s just down the road from the Pompadou.

And here it is a little larger!

Nice to see some Mario love in the French capital!       :)
