REVIEWS Fantasia: Music Evolved Review
Harmonix's rhythm game based on the Sorceror's Apprentice provided a fun experience of arm-wavy controlling goodness. It also made me want to play Rock Band again.

Natural Doctrine Review
This actually might be "your dad's" Japanese TRPG, and for those with a hankering for it, that can be a very good thing.

Well, Gamergate has spilled over into the mainstream media and the coverage appears to be nearly uniformly dreadful. Take " What is Gamergate, and What Does It Say About Gender In Video Games? " by David Konnow as an example.  It appears that the writer has done little to no...

Rumor: Nintendo Developing a Sequel to Super Mario Bros. 3

Posted on Tuesday, September 2 @ 18:00:00 Eastern by


Seattle's Penny Arcade Expo allows a ton of video game fans to gather and enjoy the medium together and while I'd normally refrain from posting this, one particularly diehard enthusiast might have the inside track on a proper sequel to the NES classic Super Mario Bros. 3.

This individual, who'll remain nameless since I've done nothing to verify the credibility of the rumor, told myself and Griffin Vacheron of CraveOnline that Nintendo is currently developing what he called "Super Mario Bros. 4".

He said that the game is apparently an 8-bit throwback that directly follows the beloved platformer that originally debuted on the Famicom in Japan and the Nintendo Entertainment System in the United States.

When asked for comment, a Nintendo representative stated "Nintendo does not comment on rumors or speculation." This is definitively a rumor though a few recent Nintendo trends have me thinking it could be real:
  • Mario. Nintendo has really leaned on this guy to get its Wii U console started on a good note. The company has released several Mario games thus far and one more with direct ties to a game like Super Mario Bros. 3 might really drive fans up the walls.
  • Retro. Gamers are really into retro, throwback software right now. Look no further than the Nintendo-platform exclusive Shovel Knight for proof.
  • Downloadable. I'd expect a Super Mario Bros. 4 in 8-bit graphics and sound would be made available for download via Nintendo's eShop service in order to keep the price down and drive more digital consumers to the Wii U and 3DS stores. Nintendo has heavily promoted its digital platform with credit promotions and game giveaways.
Would you buy a new 8-bit Mario game if it featured the kind of now-timeless design present in Super Mario Bros. 3? We'll do our best to follow up on this rumor, but readers should keep in mind that even I have my doubts as to whether or not the project is real.
