Similarly, zombie games have also gained a lot of popularity lately, so of course it was about time that the two genres would mix. Enter Z-Run for the PlayStation Vita, a runner game featuring zombies. This should make everyone happy, right? Let’s find out.
For your education and entertainment, Ze Frank has created another “True Facts” episode. This time, it’s about the floppy floppy spider of the sea — the octopus.

Back in 2010, developers Press Play released a game called Max and the Magic Marker. The game invited players to draw and create parts of the levels to solve puzzles and complete the game. The sequel to the game has just landed on PC and Xbox360 (after having a bit of time to itself on the Xbox One). I accompany Max on his adventure to see what The Curse of Brotherhood actually is.
Hardcore anime and manga fans will most likely have heard of Hirohiko Araki’s Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, a story set across several generations of the Joestar family, the main character of which is always nicknamed Jojo. The rest of you non-otaku will in likelihood have never heard of it. It obviously doesn’t have the western popularity of, say, Naruto. So it seems odd that Namco Bandai managed to localize All Star Battle and bring it to an audience that, frankly, isn’t too aware of it. Let’s delve in a bit and see if we can solve this mystery.

Dr. Nathan Myhrvold may be lacking vowels in his last name but is certainly not short in cooking skills. The good doctor’s book Modernist Cuisine borrows techniques from the science laboratory and applies them to food preparation.
The photos from the 2438-page book have been extracted and presented centre stage in the coffee table stunner, The Photography of Modernist Cuisine. The dishes were photographed against minimal backgrounds, with cutaways and macro shots providing a fascinating view into the realm of cooking. Have a look at some of the mouth-watering images after the jump.
Movie tie-in games are a dime a dozen, aren’t they? Very seldom are there good ones, and those that are usually aren’t tied to a specific movie release, but have had time to be polished and scrubbed (such as the brilliant Batman: Arkham series). This time around, and tied to the film release of Spider-Man 2, we have the video game. Does it fall into the same traps that so many tie-ins do, or will it be able to web-sling its way out of the mire of tie-in hell? Let’s find out. Continue Reading →
See that look Yoshi is giving you? You should be afraid, very afraid.
In this cautionary tale, The Peter Holmes Show reminds us that even though Mario’s lovable sidekick may look cute and all, he’s still a wild dinosaur. And what do wild dinosaurs do? Find out below.

Mario Kart has, since 1996, been one of the best casual racing games around, not just on Nintendo, but possibly across the gamut of consoles. It’s also the greatest example of rubberband racing you’ll ever come across. Now in its eighth iteration, it’s time once again to hit the tracks and see whether the latest in kart racing is a slow start, or a mad dash for the finish. (Ed: You enjoy coming up with these ridiculous puns, don’t you?)

Last week, Tumblr user and it’s love posted a clip of her bunny Luna “inhaling raspberries”. I think Luna just broke our cuteness meter.

TT Games certainly has been busy lately. Not too long ago we reviewed The Lego Movie Videogame, and hot on its heels comes the Lego version of The Hobbit. You might want to refer back to our review of Lego Lord of the Rings, because this is going to be a “what’s different” kind of review. Ready? Good…let’s break some things.
