Two Mario games I am looking forward to playing later this year

I am really looking forward to getting my hands on the next two Mario games due out on the Nintendo Wii U console: "Super Mario 3D World" (the follow-on to the 3DS game Super Mario 3D Land) which will be released in November, and "Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games" (the follow-on to the Wii and 3DS game Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games", which will be released at the end of the year.

I suspect I'm not the only person eagerly awaiting the games either, especially the first one - it looks like "Super Mario 3D World" is going to be the biggest and best Mario game ever, even better than the awesome Super Mario Galaxy 2.

Friday the 13th fun and games

Just for the fun of it, I have posted links to some great free horror-themed online games for you to play today (or any other day for that matter) over on my WordPress Personal Blog. Enjoy!

Mario & Luigi: Dream Team is out on the Nintendo 3DS in the UK today

Mario & Luigi: Dream Team

The latest Mario game for the Nintendo 3DS, "Mario & Luigi: Dream Team", is released in the UK and the rest of Europe today. It will be released in Australasia tomorrow and North America early next month.

It is the fourth entry in the "Mario & Luigi" series of Mario RPG games, which feature turn-based gameplay rather than the traditional platforming/free-roaming style of regular Mario games. One of the biggest changes in this game compared to previous versions is that players are now able to save their game progress anywhere on the overworld, as well as via Save Blocks.
