While I can’t speak for everyone, there will always be video game franchises I’ve wanted to check out but never have gotten around to. One series that immediately comes to mind is LEGO. I remember watching video reviews for a few of the games over the past few years, and each one would talk about how fun and enjoyable they were. For whatever my reasons where, I just never got around to picking one up. Fortunately, Stevivor was given the opportunity to check out a preview of not one, but two upcoming LEGO titles: The LEGO Movie Videogame and LEGO The Hobbit.

Nintendo President Satoru Iwata took to the company’s website to deliver a message to shareholders and investors: Nintendo’s focus will remain on first party hardware and software. “With the belief that the raison d’etre of entertainment is to put smiles

Gamer guys and gals, we’re back to a full-on proper month of video game releases!* There’s a ton for last-gen, but current-gen adopters can look forward to Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and the Microsoft-exclusive Titanfall. South Park: The Stick of Truth

Last year Atlus revealed that four new games in the Persona franchise would be released in Japan. It’s now been announced that all four games will be released in North America through 2014-2015. The games in question are Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, Persona

Mario’s back on the 3DS family of handheld consoles in the newest iteration of the Mario Party franchise, titled Island Tour. Nintendo’s famed mascot joins his buddies to have a bash on a number of game boards, rolling dice to advance to the finish line first, all-the-while duking it out in a series of mini-games.

Nintendo’s tentative steps into the world of smartphones continues with the company releasing the soundtracks from both Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver on Apple’s iTunes. Fans can relive all the aural bliss of HeartGold and SoulSilver with the 270 track Super Music Collection for only $16.99

Hype can be a dangerous thing. It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of JRPGs and I live on my 3DS. Seriously, I very rarely put the thing down. For that reason, I was ecstatic when I saw that Bravely Default was getting an Australian release. I had heard some very good things about it and it looked like my old pal Square Enix was doing something worth a look again. I have fallen victim to games in the past that looked perfect for me only to be let down, and that immediately came to mind as I started a new file on Bravely Default. Thankfully, this game not only lived up to my expectations but even threw in a few nice surprises. Surely you had figured that out from the score above, right?

It was revealed in Jump magazine (as reported by Siliconera) earlier this week that Brave Default will receive the full sequel treatment with Bravely Second in development for 3DS. Also reported by Siliconera, Square Enix recently trademarked both Bravely Second and Bravely Third. It’s interesting to

The Harvest Moon series has been going for what feels like forever, but has actually just hit 17 years since the first release in Japan. The latest instalment is Harvest Moon 3D: A New Beginning, the second game for the 3DS and the first to be presented in actual 3D. The story of A New Beginning is similar to that of previous instalments: you’re a young farmer-to-be moving to a new town, looking to take your plot of land from dirt patch to prosperous farm by raising crops and livestock, participating in festivals and revitalising the town.

Recently I was asked what my favorite game of all time was. I found the question impossible to answer. One that’s up there, though, is The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, so you can imagine when a sequel was announced I was quite pleased. I got my first look at The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds at E3 and I wasn’t disappointed.

Here we are. After six games, hundreds of puzzles, dozens of cups of tea, a few bumbling detectives and a handful or mysteries we have finally arrived at…the middle of Professor Layton’s story?

Beyblade Evolution is based upon the anime of the same name where Bladers fight each other with customised spinning tops in a battle arena trying to become the ultimate champion.

If you’ve played Disney Infinity you know what to expect from “Toy Story in Space.” Whether that’s a good or bad thing depends on how you felt about the main package. If you weren’t really a fan then this new Play Set is going to do nothing to change your mind. If you’re like me however and absolutely adore Disney Infinity, you’re going to have a lot of fun with this new pack.

The Marvel universe is a perfect fit with the humor of the LEGO franchise. In particular both Spider Man and Iron Mans feel like they were created solely for this LEGO Marvel Super Heroes. Their tongue and cheek sarcasm rivals even that of Deadpool, who makes an appearance selling red cheat blocks as only a self aware video game character could. From the very first cutscene the tone of the game’s humour is set. Dr. Doom has hired villains throughout the Marvel universe to collect cosmic bricks for his evil plan involving, of course, Dr. Doom’s Doom Ray of Doom. It’s safe to say that this game had me chuckling the entire time.
