The Game Bakers’ Squids series has already carved success on the mobile platform with the original Squids and Squids: Wild West. It seems only natural progression for a title with lush visuals and kooky character design receives a port on to the Nintendo Wii U platform. Tweaked for gaming consoles, Squids Odyssey retains its charm, with a gentle helping of features for first time calamari adventurers.

Etrian Odyssey is an old soul at heart. First hitting the Nintendo DS back in 2007, Atlus introduced first person dungeon exploration and blank canvas characters to the handheld device with much success. Etrian Odyssey II: Heroes of Lagaard (2008) and Etrian Odyssey III: The Drowned City (2010) followed, but was never made available in Australia.

Project X Zone is something of fan fiction. The thought of Capcom, Sega and Namco Bandai’s most beloved characters and franchises coming together in the one title is not something you’d ever expect to be developed, let alone unleashed out of Japan onto the English speaking market. It’s a peculiar blend of action, JRPG and strategy that strangely works despite the unusual premise it is built upon.

Sega speeds into a second lap around the karting scene with Sonic and Sega mascots making a return to driving mayhem in Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing Transformed. Expanding on the original racing mash-up of Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing, Sumo Digital dishes out much of the same, with a solid helping of new features to keep things fresh and interesting.

Strong competition from Codemasters Racing F1 Race Stars and Sony’s LittleBigPlanet Karting offers consumers plenty of choices, in what is the most contested periods for the genre in quite some time. Can Transformed bag of tricks convince players to go for another hot sprint around the track?

Nothing brings people together quite like the Olympics, and as the games draw near the big names have teamed up again for some friendly competition. Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games is the third title in the series, which takes a total of 20 characters from the SEGA/Nintendo franchises through a myriad of Olympic-based mini-games.

As with the previous titles, the gameplay focuses on taking part in various Olympics-ish events; although there are some, we dare say, that wouldn’t exactly classify as competitive-level sport (I’m looking at you ‘Grabbing a drink during the marathon’ and ‘Breathing during the pentathlon’ events). We tried out the 3DS version which has 57 events that are accessible through single player, multiplayer or the Olympic-centric storyline. By comparison the Wii version acts more as a party game, making up for a lack of story with more events, Party Mode and “Dream Events” which take the player to location from past Mario & Sonic at the Olympics games.

Let the Games Begin!

Leaping off the comic book pages onto the big screen, and ultimately to the interactive medium is a path traveled by many Marvel superheroes gone by. THOR: God of Thunder for the Nintendo 3DS is the Norse hammer-wielding god’s final destination on his tour to becoming an instantly recognisable name. The 3DS version of THOR: God of Thunder is essentially a port of the Nintendo Wii version released a few months back, redesigned specifically for the Nintendo 3D console. Can THOR: God of Thunder 3DS transcend to the halls of Valhalla, or will it plummet back down to Earth in a thunderous clap?

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D Review

Originally released on the Nintendo 64 in 1998, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was in no way, shape, or form, anticipated to gain the critical acclaim it received. With its seemingly perfect gameplay, memorable characters, and engaging storyline, it revolutionized what we know as ‘the open world‘ or adventure genre today. With a plethora of praise under its belt, and its revolutionary gameplay mechanics, it went on to gain worldwide recognition, being cited as ‘the greatest game of all time.’ The rest is history.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D is a reboot of an action-adventure classic with huge (iron?) boots to fill; and it has done so near flawlessly. With both a modern re-texturing and character design overhaul, creator Shigeru Miyamoto and developer Grezzo have managed to seduce players, both new and old, into what still stands as the apotheosis of legendary gaming.
