One of Nintendo's oldest bad guy turned good stories is back for its first spin on the Nintendo WiiU! Donkey Kong, the one time maniacal girlfriend stealing gorilla retired to his Island Paradise in 1994, and with his new found heroism has launches one of Nintendo's best-selling gaming franchises. 20 years after the first one came out, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze has landed, bringing with it some old faces, new tricks and a world where pirate penguins and owls pick on our jungle friends. Come check out my review of the latest edition of the franchise and see if it's a worthy pickup for your Nintendo WiiU collection.
OK, now it’s time to talk about all the big video game sequels that are in development. Video Game sequels are often more anticipated than movie sequels, and even more often are of better quality than movie sequels. Here’s a deeper dive into some of the games I saw or had some hands-on time with at E3 this week.
People often complain that there aren’t any new ideas anymore and that we’re just rehashing old ideas over and over again. This post will focus on all the new IPs (Intellectual Properties) that I got to see or play in the first two days.

This is the Press Conference I've been waiting for! I love all three game consoles and probably play the Wii the least, but I'm still a Nintendo fan boy and I love all these rumours about the new controller for their new console. I've got all the details - read on!
The EA Press Conference is taking place at the Orpheum Theatre, which looks like a nice theatre Theatre, but there’s certainly a big difference from the presence Microsoft had to here. We’ll see if there’s more in store for us behind the curtains! Fanciness aside though, we’re all here to be blown away by game play footage, not stage setup!
I’m here at the first Press Screening of E3: Microsoft. There are a bunch of rumours flying around about what big news will be coming our way. I’m anticipating some news about some Kinect games for the serious gamer as well as plans to make the Xbox more of an entertainment device for your home. For this press screening I’m going to type as I’m watching the conference and then post as soon as we’re done - or throughout bu updating this post if there's time.
