If you've been following my lessons in video games with and through my son, you'll know that this Christmas he got a 3DS, not me. Even though I use it from time to time, it is wholly his to do with as he pleases. It's a life lesson, and he's been amazingly responsible with it. When he used my DS Lite, I'd see it bucked, banged, and otherwise thrown around. Now, he does a great job of closing his 3DS when he needs to move so he's not watching the screen and walking, putting it away when he's done, powering it down appropriately, the works. I'm really proud of him, and proud of me for instilling some values in him to take care of things.
I've been playing quite a bit of Tomb Raider lately and the game has really impressed me. Sure, there are large sections of the game where it practically plays itself and all you have to do is push forward and occassionally push A or X, but the puzzles can be challenging and the graphics are outrageous. For my full review, press Play on the animated cartoon. If you have Tomb Raider and have finished playing it, you can trade it in on Goozex for 2400 points (as of this writing). You can then use those points to get another game.
Sony and Microsoft have both fired their opening salvos and the PS4 and Xbox One have been announced. We know a lot about both consoles but we are missing a lot of important details such as price and release date. With what we know so far, which console are you leaning towards?

The Game Bakers have proven to me that a quality game capable of capturing a core gamer's attention is possible on an iOS device. Previously, I was able to review Squids Wild West for them. SWW took the lighthearted humor and quick level mechanics of an iOS title and combined them with a deep strategy game and engaging story. Now, they present their newest foray into a different genre, and even though it is a completely different genre, they still bake up a quality gaming experience.
Fighting games have been popular this generation. Super hero games have also been popular. Why not combine the two concepts for a fighting game about super heroes? Injustice roars onto the fighting scene with a lot to offer, but is it for everyone?
The ghosts are back and up to their old tricks. Professor E. Gadd and the Poltergust 5000 are looking for Luigi's help in ridding a valley full of ghosts from their mayhem. While recently friendly, the disappearance of the Dark Moon has turned these kind spirits into tricky, rotten, and downright mean versions of themselves. Can Luigi save the...well...night again?
