  • Nintendo eShop on Wii U
    • Tadpole Treble – Get ready for a creative adventure as you swim through sheet music and avoid the notes of the game’s catchy soundtrack. Along the way, you’ll encounter massive bosses, fully sung songs and plenty of unlockables, as well as an intuitive full stage/song creation mode using the Wii U GamePad controller.
  • Virtual Console on Wii U
    • Wave Race 64 – Choose one of four characters, each with his or her own unique abilities and style, and master the game’s excellent controls. Make your way through nine courses, each with its own challenges. Take a break from racing to try the Stunt Mode. Polish your skills pulling off handstands, rolls and flips.
  • Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS
    • Disney Art Academy – Demo Version – In the full version of the game, players can discover their inner artists to capture the stunning visuals of over 80 Disney and Pixar characters. With advice and lessons inspired by Disney art and Pixar animations, they learn to use a bundle of different drawing tools to create Elsa and Olaf from Disney Frozen, characters from Disney Inside Out, or characters like Mickey Mouse. They can even share their creations with their friends. The demo version gives players access to two lessons to try out: Mickey Mouse and Olaf from Disney Frozen. Game and demo in 2D.
  • Virtual Console on New Nintendo 3DS
    • Mega Man X – Hundreds of years after his death, Dr. Light’s final creation is discovered. Now, the future lies on the brink of destruction and X must use all of his newfound powers and abilities to hunt down the maverick Reploids and their leader, Sigma, before the human race is wiped from the planet.
  • Wii Retail Download
    • Mario Sports Mix – The game presents four familiar sports – hockey, basketball, volleyball, dodgeball – but with a Mario twist. Players can choose from a variety of playable Mushroom Kingdom characters or play as their own Mii characters. In any sport, power-ups can turn the tide of a game in an instant. And in over-the-top Mario sports fashion, each character can unleash a special move.

Time for Rico to reach the high seas!

Just Cause 3's Sea... action has just been upgraded with the Bavarium Sea Heist. I won't get into full details about it at this time because we still have to review it, but on that note, it's now available. The Air, Land & Sea Expansion pass holders can just download it, while those of you who want to get out and... test the waters can download it for $5.99 / €5.99 / £4.99. On that note... check out the trailer below and see if it's something that tickles your fancy. Game on!

  • Liberate the Medici coastal waters of Scolio, home to Eden Research stations and the mysterious “Stingray” base.
  • Drive the deadly rocket boat “Loochador”, using its multi-lock missile launchers and mini-guns to defeat the formidable Black Hand Fleet.
  • Infiltrate the Stingray base to steal the deadly “Eden Spark” lightning gun and unleash elemental death on your enemies in all new story-line and missions.
  • Power up the Eden Spark further with mods earned in the “Boat Invader” challenge.


You know something... if the development team created an option for creative people (such as us) to make scenes in the world of Just Cause 3, something amazing could come of it (organically). I'd love to see what people come up, there are plenty of main NPC, basic NPC and ofcourse... Rico.

We are going to be swooping into the world of BATMAN as told through the story crafting pro's at TellTale games. We look forward to reviewing this title as soon as humanly possibly and... we also are pushing a little something AWESOME... closer to launch. We've provided a question to our contact at TellTale to see if they've ever considered giving us the option of a VR view in games such as BATMAN... and The Walking Dead. I really think that they'd be able to take the cool to the next level because the depth (if you have the VR headset & compatible hardware) would go beyond a 10... in my opinion.
