If you have not turned your 3DS on in a while (why not, there are plenty of good titles for it) or if you have simply not let it connect to the net in a while, now is a good time to do so.
Due to poor sales of the console and subsequent price drop (though frankly I don’t see that they were bad) Nintendo are offering 20 classic NES and GBA titles free to download to early adopters, being anyone who first performed a system update before 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on Aug. 11, 2011.
While you may have no interest in many of them there must be something in there for most people, I mean who can say no to Mario and not one but three Zelda games (including the Minish Cap)? The complete list is included below. All you have to do to get them (assuming you are eligible) is open the store select settings/other go to your download history where you will find they have been added to your account for download. The complete list of titles is below the cut.
In September, Blizzard Entertainment began sending out closed Beta Testing invites for the highly anticipated Diablo III. While it seems there have been a rather limited number of these highly sought after beta invites, I have been fortunate enough to have a friend ( thanks again Mike!) who has been kind enough to allow me to watch him play the game in order to write this series of content previews for the GTN readers!

Furries will destroy all!
Over the years games have lost all the fun through story, physics and all the things that are “quality”. There were times where a person could just sit down with their controller and screw around for the fun of it but this is not a common habit within games of the present. Now in these boring, sad times we must face the raging online gamers and stunning linear story lines. Thank Saints Row: The Third has come to save is with hilarious story, hilarious gameplay, hilarious physics!….oh did I mention it was hilarious? Continue Reading
After some serious convincing from a couple of friends ( and more than a few youtube videos) who have yet to steer me wrong when it comes to games, I was, once again, talked into another game.
Minecraft, the limitless game in which, you mine… and you craft. The concept is simple and you are only limited by two factors, your imagination and your time. While Minecraft is probably one of the least graphically advanced games we have seen in awhile, it has taken the world by storm. Continue Reading
As any good Star Wars fan knows, on December 20th (USA), Star Wars the Old Republic will be released. Lucas Arts, EA, and BioWare have once again teamed up to bring the Star Wars experience to the MMORPG generation. Now, this post may not have any new information for those who have been following The Old Republic since it was announced nearly a year ago, but hopefully this will be some insight into some of the features not many have gotten to experience.

When a person thinks of an X-Men game they are excited! Mutant powers, evil villains and an awesome story! What else could a person want? Most of the X-Men games have been appealing because of these aspects and now Silicon Knights has taken on the challenge of creating one themselves.
X-Men: Destiny takes place in a new world in the X-men universe where Professor X has been killed whilst defeating an evil robot from the future who has the mission of destroying all the mutants in the past. The game begins at a rally in support for the alliance of humans and mutants together lead by Cyclops and Luis Reyes. However, as the rally is being held it is interrupted by a chaotic storm of what seems to be powers of the mutants in The Brotherhood. At this point you choose from three different normal human characters to control that suddenly realize they have the amazing power of being a mutant, how convenient! Though this is where we see the main focus of Destiny, the power of choice. Continue Reading
I’ve been playing F1 2011 for the past week and it’s taken a little getting used to all the different changes including the tyres, controls and new menus. However, here are my thoughts in the video below which was taken in the 2011 Lotus F1 car and based at the Kuala Lampur F1 track, Malaysia:
