In case you missed it, here’s this week in gaming (Week ending 4/20/12)

In the week that ended with bad jokes about 420, it was pretty uneventful. A few games were announced for 2013. And betas were opened for all the world to see. We also got a brief walkthrough of Pax East from our very own Steph, who was featured on Xplay! So, let’s look at the week that was, in case you missed it!  

Three Days Grace Makes it’s Debut in Next Week’s Rock Band Weekly DLC Update

Three Days Grace Makes it’s Debut in Next Week’s Rock Band Weekly DLC Update

I’m trying my hardest to get back into the swing of things since I’ve been lurking in the shadows for a while. What better way to get started again than with the Rock Band weekly DLC updates. So let’s get started!

Mario Kart 7 Review

Nintendo continues to revisit successful classics on the 3DS with the newly numbered, Mario Kart 7. This hot title continues the Mario Kart legacy with new courses, 3D graphics and new air and water gameplay. But, does it hold up to the stellar record of past games in the series, or will it get slammed with a blue turtle shell 10 feet short of the finish line?

CES 2012: Wii U Tablet Controller Hands-on Demo First Impressions

  Let’s be honest, folks… When Nintendo announced at last year’s E3 that they would rolling out with a new tablet-like controller before a new console, we were all more than a little confused. To me, it totally looked like an iPad skinned with Nintendo controllers but honestly after getting my hands-on the new controller I know that I was totally wrong. Nintendo is well aware that the only way this new device will work...

Super Mario 3D Land Review

The 3DS came out this year and has been met with many tough challenges overcome including a 250 dollar price, missing features and a weak game lineup. Since then, Nintendo has lowered the price of the hardware, added new functionality with Netflix and eShop, and now they’re charging into the holidays with 2 new platform exclusive Mario game.  The first of these titles is now available, but after setting the bar so high with the Wii Super Mario Galaxy games,...

Uber First Impressions Preview – Just Dance Kids, Just Dance 3, Abba, The Black Eyed Peas Experience

  Lets just say it: UbiSoft has definitely stepped it up to a whole other level when it comes to music and rhythm games. Or maybe just casual games in general. It was just a few weeks ago when I absolutely fell in love with Rocksmith and now there are a few other musical titles that I’m getting all excited about again. Give me a few moments to explain, I was lucky enough to try...

PAX Prime 2010 Round up

So PAX Prime in Seattle this year is nearly over and we got a bunch of surprises this year from the show. Duke Nukem Lives Again: After much rumor and speculation, Take 2 finally confirmed that Duke Nukem is alive and well in the hands of far more financially responsible developer, Gearbox! The title was playable on the show floor and is expected to be released in 2011. Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath goes HD: The cult...

Harmonix Confirm the set list after “Leak” (wink)

Harmonix Confirm the set list after “Leak” (wink)

After some horrible horrible sites released an apparently leaked setlist for Rock Band 3, Harmonix released this video statement saying that they had “confirmed” nothing… Well today they officially OFFICIALLY, released the set list as followed: 2000s: Amy Winehouse, “Rehab” At the Drive-In, “One Armed Scissor” Avenged Sevenfold, “The Beast & the Harlot” Dover, “King George” The Bronx, “False Alarm” The Flaming Lips, “Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots Pt. 1” HIM (His Infernal Majesty), “Killing...

E3 Editor’s Choice: “Epic Mickey”

Unlike my far cooler colleague, GamerGal, I couldn’t go to E3 and had to sit at home and feverishly follow tweets and my normal 10 million websites to scratch together all the news out there. While I feverishly wait for the New Zelda, Kirby, and Donkey Kong, nothing on the Wii has got me more excited then Junction Point and Disney’s Epic Mickey. The story sounds like the kind of thing Walt Disney himself would pen if he...

Green Day Rock Band Tracks Released!

Green Day Rock Band Tracks Released!

I was on the fence about Green Day Rock Band but now that I got to see the list of songs that are going to be included with the game, I can’t help but get excited! All die-hard Green Day fans will be happy to see their favs up there as well as some classics that just about everyone knows. The Green Day: Rock Band track list includes a collection of greatest hits and fan...

Confirmed: Green Day: Rock Band. Yay?

Confirmed: Green Day: Rock Band. Yay?

It was all over the internet hours before the Spike VGA awards and now it’s official, the next band to get their own stand alone Rock Band title will be Green Day. While I am still holding out hope for a Queen or Muse Rock Band, hint hint, I’m ok with a Green Day game. I own all their albums, go to all the shows, sing all the songs, so I am a fan. I’m...
