7 Tips to be a Pro at Mario Kart 7

Nearing the 8000 VR mark I can safely say that I’ve seen almost everything that the online portion of Mario Kart 7 has to offer: highly skilled racers, noobs, brilliant strategies, nasty ones, glitches, bugs, epic comebacks, and epic losses too. Sure, there are many other players with even higher VRs, but from this level on the skill level doesn’t really change that much between people with 8000, 9000 or even 10000 VR.

So let’s see which are the cornerstones of good Mario Kart 7 racing and what things should you do to improve your game and even beat those “3 Stars 15000+ VR” japs.

You just can’t give Uncharted 3 a 4/10 review score and expect any credibility

First I’d like to say that even although this is primary a Nintendo site we are above all just guys who like gaming, no matter on what platform.

So after the all the stir that the negative Uncharted 3 reviews have caused, I needed to write something to voice my opinion – an opinion that I think most “average gamers” will share.

It happens to be based on the huge backlash that those reviews caused but I want to make a point for all games, all genres, video gaming as a whole.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword boasting an incredible 98 score on Metacritic

zelda skyward sword


Some go as far as saying  that this is the best Zelda ever made, and with good reason: Skyward Sword is currently at a 98 Metacritic score, one of the highest this generation and only 1 point lower than the best game of all time (yes, Ocarina of Time, with a 99).

This type of scores usually get lower as more reviews pour in, but we’re talking about the last swan song for the Wii so this could even end up like this.

Excited? We certainly are!

The japanese company is even going to support DLC and micro-transactions in the future!

Cave Story 3D shaping up to be the surprise masterpiece of the year

This month is probably one of the best ones of all gaming history, for all consoles.

But among all the high-profile releases like Super Mario 3D Land, there is a little gem called Cave Story 3D no one is really talking about.

But knowing that it’s revered as a cult classic in the PC scene and that this 3D port is seemingly even better, Cave Story 3D could end up being this years Nintendo 3DS’s GOTY.

It’s time for Zelda: Skyward Sword to take the crown from Ocarina of Time

For 12 long years I’ve revered Zelda: Ocarina of Time. A flawless game, something that made you appreciate the medium as a whole, so full of little details which together brought (almost) perfection.

I’ve spent many hours thinking what was what made Ocarina of Time. I could never nail it down, but I always came to the same conclusion: it was the experience as a whole, everything coming together in a way that was almost magical.

The Oficial Nintendo Magazine (ONM) awarded an incredible 98% to the new Zelda aventure, Skyward, saying that “it’s the best Zelda ever made”.

This is quite amazing taking into account that the Zelda series is famous for its quality…. could Skyward Sword finally surpass the legendary Ocarina of Time? Seems so!

The new motion controls, beautiful graphics and engaging story have definitely impressed the ONM reviewers.

Top 5 must have Nintendo 3DS games for this Fall

The Nintendo 3DS is slowly gaining traction, mainly because Nintendo has made a tremendous effort to give us the best games this fall.

But with so many heavy hitters, which are the ones that you should really buy?


5. Need for Speed: The Run 3D

Need for Speed has always been a respected franchise, and for good reasons: featuring an incredible sense of velocity and thrilling car chases, NFS always delivered. At least until the last iteration which definitely didn’t meet expectations.
