vlog3

Today, the 27th of August, is a pretty awesome day as Mario Kart 8 DLC has been announced. In November the first DLC pack will be released, which features Link as a playable character, FZero and Excite Bike themed tracks, and Captain Falcon’s Blue Falcon  as a usable vehicle. In May next year, the next DLC pack will feature the Animal Crossing Villager and Isabelle as playable characters.

Today, Reptile Games released a fighting game called Lethal League, a game I’ve been waiting for a while now. A flash demo has been on their site since last years’ EVO show. But now you can purchase the game and enjoy hitting your friends in the face with a high speed baseball!

PlayStation Vita… TV?

Well this is certainly interesting… I thought this was a joke, kinda like how Nintendo announced the 2DS, which I still need to blog about. But as I’m typing this as it appear on Kotaku, let me say that the last few weeks have been totally barmy in the console industry as Sony and Microsoft release their next generation consoles!

My weekend with the Ouya…

MyOuya

Well… Why do we have to pay more for this! In the states it costs $99, but $99 is not £99, it’s £65! But talking about price, I’ll explain how this might get a little more pricey than expected depending on where you get it from. Let me explain… Continue reading
