Does the PS4 version offer worthwhile new features or are they paper thin?

Mario Maker Review
Nintendo puts Mario's fate in the hands of players in Super Mario Maker, and the result is one of the best games of the year.

The Last of Us Wins E3 Game Critics Awards

Posted on Tuesday, June 26 @ 16:08:50 PST by


Once again, the collective Game Critics Awards: Best of E3 2012 have been revealed. The Last of Us won five of the categories, while Dance Central 3, Halo 4, Watch_Dogs, and XCOM: Enemy Unknown took two each. The majority of wins when to Sony (7) and Microsoft (4), with Nintendo only receiving 1 award.

Compared to our own Best of E3 Awards, which are not based on any categories this year, we also gave commendations to other games that were not given a Game Critics Award, including:
Tomb Raider, Borderlands 2, Dead Space 3, Assassin's Creed III, Beyond: Two Souls, Resident Evil 6, SimCity, Dishonored, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, Persona 4: Arena, and Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch.
Yeah, that's a lot...

I'm not saying that the Game Critics Awards lack importance, but I think they might need to reconsider their categorical awards so that all these awesome games aren't ignored.
