Nintendo recently announced a new handheld device. Enter the Nintendo 2DS.
Initial reactions may include "what were they thinking...!?!" but lets give Nintendo a break and see what is really going on with this new device.
The Hori Fight Stick Mini 3 is a small but nifty fight stick released for the PS3. It is also compatible on the PC.
The major form factor of this fight stick is its size and how small the thing is compared the original Hori Fight Stick 3.

Diablo 3 first came out on the PC last year. There has been a lot of controversy with this game on the PC and its DRM (Digital Rights Management). From day one launch problems (error 37) to players complaining about the auction house, will Blizzard have luck with its console version releases.

The Xbox One has received its fair share of grief from the internet but the real question remains if it really deserved it.
Every since its announcement to rival Sony's PS4, Microsoft has seen nothing but negative reviews with regard to some of their policies.
Lets Break it down to see what exactly happened.

Released originally on the Nintendo DS, Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective makes its way onto the iOS platform.
Made by the same creator who brought us the Phoenix Wright series on the DS, this game has the similar kind of vibe going for it but instead of courtrooms and objections, it features ghosts and tricks!
Being available in HD on the iPad this game makes a fine port of the original. I had played this game for the first time on the iPad mini and could not put it down for a second.
There has been a lot of talk about the latest game from Konami, Metal Gear Solid V: the Phantom Pain. I recently saw the trailer and here are my first impressions so far.

The ability to play our favorite Street Fighter and Tekken characters on a handheld sounds awesome!
Street Fighter X Tekken is a fighting game (in case you didn't already know) which features characters from both the Street Fighter universe and the Tekken universe. For a long time both these two games have been rivaling each other in terms of being the favorite game among fighting game fans, but now they have teamed up to give what fans have been craving for all this time. The real question that needs to be asked is whether or now this mash-up will really work or not.
Having recently played this in HD on the Wii U, there are so many things wanting this to not be the last story.
The Last Story was released on the Wii console in Europe in February 2012. Some consider this game to be among the top RPG games ever made for the Wii generation.
Having never played this on the original Wii console I got my copy just in time to play it on my recently bought Wii U console. The benefits of playing Wii games on the Wii U console are that the games are all in HD so we can enjoy sharper graphics in high definition.
As expected by the Tales series, Tales of Xillia is a breath of fresh air!
I recently got my hands on a Pre-order limited edition copy of Tales of Xillia. Having played few hours of the game I will be splitting this into various sections. For now I will concentrate on first impressions.
