Live Playable Angry Birds Display

Yeah, we posted a video of this same event a while ago, but it was a fuzzy mobile-phone recording. Apparently that was an amateur recording of the filming of an ad for T-Mobile. Now it’s been professionally recorded and edited, and it looks much better. I really wish I had’ve been there, it looks pretty awesome. I wanna kidnap one of those pigs and take it home. Have a look.  

Luigi’s Mansion 2 Announced for 3DS!

A lot of what Nintendo had to show this year was stuff we had heard vague rumours of already, and they simply gave us some details. But of course, E3 is no fun without a few out-of-the-blue surprises, and one announcement in particular made me happily squeal like an injured rodent – a new Luigi’s Mansion title will hit the 3DS early next year. I loved the original Luigi’s Mansion, and ...

Now kiddies, do you remember your three R’s? What? Reading, writing, arithmetic? Uuh, no! Only one of those actually starts with R! Jeez. No, obviously, the three R’s refer to Wrecked: Revenge Revisited, the new Mario Kart-cross-Destruction Derby game from 505 Games. Ignore the clunky name, and endure the cringe-inducing taunts of the characters, and the game looks solid and fun. And c...
