10 August 2012

First! Hear New Super Mario Bros. 2, Sound Shapes, addictive iOS fave 10000000, and (surprisingly positive!) 3DS XL/LL impressions. Then! Polish up your Mini Medals and settle in with some Medicinal Herb for LXX minutes of in-depth chit-chat on the Wii’s (not-so-MMO)RPG, DQ X. Finally! Polish it off with news on Ouya, Steam, the Oculus Rift VR headset, Japanese fighting game tournament Super Battle Opera, and, of course, more.
