New Super Mario Bros. comes to Wii U Virtual Console today

New Super Mario Bro

Thought we escaped from the clutches of New Super Mario Bros., didn’t you? Well, you were wrong! The original 2006 hit is one of the best selling games of all time, sitting about roughly 30.8 million copies, so naturally Nintendo is going to want to flog it for all it’s worth at this point. The game will be launching for the Wii U Virtual Console today for $9.99.

I was never really a fan of this game, and that was even before everybody grew tired of it shtick three similar games later. In 2006, it had been nearly 15 years since we played a legitimate 2D Mario game, Super Mario World, and the real world was craving some of that old-school action. They got it in New Super Mario Bros. on the Nintendo DS, and most people praised it for being true to the original spirit.

Myself? I thought it was a clever evolution of the original Super Mario Bros., but when playing it, it still felt light-years behind Super Mario World or Super Mario Bros. 3. Granted, that was the point. The game was supposed to be an “other world” Mario title as if Super Mario Bros. 3 had never happened, and the franchise had diverged in a different direction.

At the time, I just felt like if I needed the nostalgia trip, why not play the better games instead? I wanted to play 2D Mario to have fun, not play 2D Mario for the sake of playing 2D Mario. Nowadays, it’s a bit more interesting as a stand alone title with that “other world” approach, and comparing the game to two of the best platformers of all time that weren’t supposed to exist isn’t exactly fair.

It’s a fine game and was a solid start to a sub-series that went on a little bit too long. Maybe a fresh look is what I need now that it is almost old enough to be nostalgic.

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry, e incluso un fanboy BlackBerry, sólo porque resulta que tengo probado, y lo disfrutamos, el Z30-libre del teclado. Sin embargo, a pesar de mi predilección por ambos teclados y el RIM avances (er, BlackBerry) ha realizado recientemente, el Nexus One de Google 5 sigue siendo mi smartphone defecto de elección.
Pero eso cambió hace dos semanas - al menos temporalmente - cuando Jon Rettinger me retó a tratar de vivir con el dispositivo insignia de BlackBerry, el Pasaporte. Y ya que estoy por lo general para cualquier reto tecnológico que decidí darle un paso - y así que me puse el Nexus a un lado y se zambulló en la parte más profunda.

Gears of War remaster screenshots from footage leak

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo The only thing Black Tusk and Microsoft have left to do on the Gears of War remaster is actually announce it. We’ve seen it hinted at, denied, and rated.Now we have some footage accidentally leaked onto the Xbox DVR site, likely by a developer who forgot to disable the automatic upload.This isn’t gameplay footage per se – the enemy is standing still in the clips while the player attacks them. It’s likely test footage for some of the gore physics or something like that. But it’s definitely footage taken in-game.The two images above were pulled from a NeoGAF thread on the leak comparing the screenshot of the new clips to one from the original Gears. Microsoft is likely scrambling to take the footage down, but currently the thread, linked to in the source for this story, has links to the videos.If you decide to click through and watch the clips, it’s important to note that they were filmed using the Xbox Game DVR and were filmed three months ago, before t…

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launch trailer take 2 – Go Your Own Way

You can call it another lonely day. Haven’t we been here once before? CD Projekt RED believes that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is far too amazing for just one launch trailer, so it has decided to create yet another just to drive home the fact that you need to play this game.The new “Go Your Way” launch trailer features more in-engine graphics instead of impressive pre-rendered CG, and its focus this time around is not our big, bad hero Geralt but rather the Princess Ciri. Don’t be fooled by her puppy dog eyes and adorable freckles. This girl will kill you in a flash! The trailer tells her tale of how she wandered from home, and tells of how Geralt sets out to find her.The relationship between these two is not the only star of the trailer either. Geralt’s fantasy world is full of real life horrors that extend beyond mere monsters. Slaughter, torture, executions, dangerous seductions. The trailer bares all that you will find in this horrible yet beautiful place, giving you a taste of the s…
