REVIEWS Astro A38 Wireless Headset Review
With the launch of the A38s, Astro has clearly shown that they can rock our eardrums off even if we aren’t sitting in our living rooms.

Destiny Review
With Bungie's leap to next-generation platforms and interstellar space closer to home, I wonder if E.T. is out there somewhere.

PREVIEWS Skylanders Trap Team Preview
While younger gamers have flocked to the brand, more mature consumers remain reluctant to jump on board. Skylanders move forward with trappable enemies, though I doubt it’ll turn stubborn heads.

I have and will continue to have a place in my heart for Nintendo. In fact, my first console was a Super Nintendo. The video game market has changed drastically since the early '90s and it seems like what once was platinum is more so along the lines of silver now. Nintendo has always been...

The Download June 27th, 2013

Posted on Thursday, June 27 @ 20:00:00 Eastern by

Grasshoppers, hedgehogs,... magic... this week's Download has it all. Whether you're looking for games that rhyme with games you've heard of before or just Deadpool and his big mouth, everything you could want is available digitally, which is the way of the future.

I still feel like I'm playing catch-up after this year's massive E3. The summer will continue to slow new releases down to a crawl, but that doesn't exactly apply to downloads, does it?

Nintendo eShop

Nintendo gives the 3DS Virtual Console a boost of speed in the form of two classic Sonic games, plus some motorbike mayhem in the form of Urban Trials Freestyle which adds a level editor to the package originally released on Vita. Need more? Check out Kokuga from the makers of Ikaruga.

iOS Pick of the Week: Hoppetee

When everything is said and done, it'll be the animals in our world that survive. Angry fowl, water-searching crocodiles, this leaping grasshopper.... Hoppetee plays a lot like Tiny Wings in that maintaining momentum is key to scoring high and going for a long run. You haven't played Tiny Wings? God, what is wrong with you?

Like Tiny Wings, Hoppetee relies on very simple controls and an awesome sense of speed to keep players engaged. Jumping at the exact right second to score a huge strand of musical notes or launching high in the air to clear a huge gap feels great. Even better, Hoppetee is incredibly non-threatening and simple enough for all ages to enjoy. That doesn't mean it's without deep mechanics though, so be prepared to tear that iPad out of your child's hands, leaving them in tears.
