Scribblenauts Unmasked review: Super speller

Seeing over two thousand comic book heroes and villains drawn in Scribblenauts' distinctive style is bonkers. When the sandbox series debuted in 2009, I remember fans caricaturing hundreds of pop culture figures in the same charming, squat style, imagining their favorite characters dropped into...

Scribblenauts Unlimited review: Limitless tomfoolery

5th Cell's Scribblenauts Unlimited brought out the worst in me. Available for 3DS, PC, and Wii U -- I played the Wii U version for this review -- the game begins with series star Maxwell pranking a hungry beggar, as he feeds the fellow a rotten apple conjured by his magic notebook. It's a useful...

Tekken 3D Prime Edition review: Far from prime edition

We've raised our expectations for portable fighting games in the last decade, especially in the past year. The last time Namco brought Tekken to a Nintendo handheld, it produced 2002's Tekken Advance, which received praise from reviewers at the time but in hindsight was a poor facsimile of the...

Editorial: Lay of the 3D Land

Eric Caoili loved the stereoscopic effect in Super Mario 3D Land. In this article, he explains why it was so good -- and why it shouldn't be a priority for other 3DS games. Since the 3DS's launch, many gamers and reviewers have complained about the lack of titles that use the handheld's...

The DS Life: Phosphorescence

Even as a kid (or perhaps especially as a kid), artist David Gibbons had a fascination for all things glow-in-the-dark. Really, though, what's there to not like about glow-in-the-dark junk? David covered his bedroom walls with every glow-in-the-dark decoration he could find -- posters, stickers,...

The DS Life: Center of attention

Despite the aged look of this week's image, this photograph was actually taken quite recently, as evidenced by the DS Lite. The scene is a familiar one, especially at family get-togethers, when gangs of younger cousins, nephews, and nieces roam the house, desperate in their search for any...

The DS Life: Sleepy underground

We've featured "subway gamers" in the past, and we've also posted images of sleepy gamers, but this week, through the magic of candid photography, we have a scene that captures both of those elements together. It doesn't sound that amazing, right? Well, join us past the post break to see why we...

The DS Life: A young Hylian boy

Halloween is only a day away -- do you have your costume ready yet? Still looking for video game-inspired ideas? How about Dr. Kawashima from the Brain Age series? Phoenix Wright? Travis Touchdown? How about Mario? Need a female costume? Maybe you can dress up as one of the ninja sisters from the...

The DS Life: i

As far as the Nintendo DSi's new features go, most of the opinions we've heard seem to think unkindly of the upcoming hardware's cameras -- some calling it a gimmick that needlessly raises the system's price, others describing it as an absent-minded addition that hardly competes with their...
