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...

DAILY MANIFESTO

The Download May 2nd, 2013

Posted on Thursday, May 2 @ 17:48:15 Eastern by

Easily the biggest downloadable release in weeks is Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, the self-contained alternate universe Far Cry 3 where the island is actually the 1980s and 90s and the people on it are all cyborgs. Ninja cyborgs. Ninja cyborg clans too. If you're looking for something fun on the 3DS, be sure to check out the eShop sale while you're at it. If you're an Android user, check out our Android pick of the week down below.

Xbox Live Arcade

Only one release is set for this week on Xbox Live Arcade and that's the one with the cyborg ninjas I was talking about earlier. I guess Microsoft has an excuse with all the work they're doing to reveal the Next Xbox.
PlayStation Network

If you need more on the newly added software for PlayStation platforms, PSLS's weekly PSN update is my source for The Download and you don't need to be a fanboy to visit. Steam

Ubisoft's overhauled shooter is also available on PC where your super high-def screen can be dominated by pixels and standard-def screen effects. Also, Fez.

Android Pick of the Week: Iron Man 3

Despite hanging out with Sonic the Hedgehog and the Sega publishing crew for his past two movies, Iron Man 3's interactive version is landing on mobile platforms from Game Loft. You might know Game Loft from their numerous rip-offs of popular, established brands, but every once in a while, that talent comes in handy. Iron Man 3, for example, bites lots of features from the popular auto-runner genre represented on iPhones and Androids by the likes of Temple Run and Jetpack Joyride.

The graphics and music are awesome and the frame rate holds up pretty well. There's a bunch of unlockable suits and bosses to blast, but I can't figure out how to stay quick on the draw with my laser. Mostly I'm just pumped for the new movie. It might seem stupid but at the very least you'll be able to kill the 10-15 minutes of ads they now play in theaters before every movie.
