Review - Mario Party 9 (Wii)

Mario Party 9, hard to believe that there are 8 older incarnations of this game.  For a long time I felt proud that I have never played a Mario Party game.  "I'm a hardcore gamer!" I told myself.  Someone who couldn't be bothered with picking up or even playing a party game.  This is actually the first Mario Party game I have played... EVER.  Like, in my life.

I have always known about the Mario Party games, but never felt the desire to go out and try one.  So I wasn't too sure what to expect out of Mario Party 9, I mean other than it's got Mario characters and it's kind of a...  Party?  I have heard some complaints about Mario Party from those who have played past iterations of the game.  When asking if they would recommend it, usually the response was "Meh, I guess it's ok."  Here's my view on the game, coming from a source who has never enjoyed/endured the experience that is, Mario Party.

An Amazing 3DS deal for Canada

So Walmart in Canada is selling the 3DS for $119 for a limited time.  If you or someone you know hasn't picked one up yet, this is a great time to do so.  $119 is a STEAL!  Seriously!  I hope they have some kind of promotion like that in my area.

Darksiders 2 will be a Wii U launch title.

Lead designer Hayden Dalton spoke with Digital Spy and confirmed that Darksiders 2 will be available for the Wii U on "day one."  Great news indeed and it's nice to know we have at least one core game slated to be available at the launch of Wii U.  The Darksiders 2 Official Facebook page states that the game will be available on June 26th.  Does this mean we will be seeing the release of the Wii U around that same time frame?  Who knows?  That's up to speculation and debate at this point.  I'm pretty sure we won't have a solid release date for the Wii U until E3.

Kid Icarus: Uprising - New York Tournament Pictures

Some pictures of the Kid Icarus: Uprising Tournament in New York via Nintendo of America Twitter.  Nintendo sure has been showing a lot of love for Kid Icarus.  It has been 25 years since the last game.

 Contestants here in NY are lined up for the  tournament. 

Review - Tekken 3D Prime Edition (3DS)

Ok, so just to start off this review, I want to let everyone know that I am not a fan of the Tekken series.  The last Tekken game I played was the original Tekken on the original Playstation if that tells you anything.  So just bear that in mind as you read this review.

Ok then, let's get started!

When I first popped the game in, my mind was instantly filled with doubt, but I also wanted to give Tekken 3D Prime Edition a fair chance.  Surely there are some things that have changed within the past years since my last exposure to the game right?  Let's see...

Ketzal's Corridors - Teaser Trailer

I know I've seen this video a while ago, but now Nintendo has just posted it to their YouTube Channel.  An interesting puzzle game, it reminds me of that Wii Motion Plus game where you have to fit your Mii through different shaped openings.

Fit Music Official Trailer

This game does not look good to me at all, and I'm not saying that just because I'm a fat guy that hates exercising, it just looks BAD.  The music in the trailer reminds of the Rock Solid track from Conkers Bad Fur Day.  Now that game was great!

Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir Live Action Promo Video

I'm interested in seeing how things game turns out.  I've only seen a few videos and it still kind of confuses me.  Anyways...

At the time of posting this there was one more screenshot that was supposed to show one of the enemies in the game but instead a duplicate picture of "The Lightning of Judgement" was in it's place.  We'll be sure to update this post when @KidIcarusUK posts the correct picture.
