Of all the highly anticipated titles this year, Super Smash Bros. has got to be somewhere near the top of the list. For the uninitiated, it’s a sprawling beat-em-up featuring a host of Nintendo’s greatest and toughest characters (and a few borrowed from …here and there, amongst other places). It’s a fabulous roster of fighting, and the 3DS version is upon us. I put on my fighting words and take the knocks to bring you this *knockout* review.
Level 5 are known for some of the most amazing JRPGs ever created, and the new Fantasy Life for the Nintendo 3DS is no different. Read on, and I’ll take you on a journey that you’re going to not want to end.
The US Postal Service honours the “quintessential American superhero” in a special edition run of stamps. It’s Batman’s 75th Anniversary this year and the set of stamps show the Caped Crusader’s iconic identity through the Golden, Silver, Bronze, and Modern ages of the American comic book.
Check out the Batman-themed stamps after the jump.
Lifted from her upcoming album, Aretha Franklin Sings The Great Diva Classics, the 72-year-old soul hits singer covers one of Adele’s chart-topping tunes, Rolling in the Deep. It’s a wonderful rendition, with an added chorus line from “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.” Have a listen to it below.
Cubemen 2 is a real time strategy tower defence game made by Nnooo. It’s seen a release on many other platforms, including PC, Android, and iOS, and now it’s made its way to the Wii U. I review this particular version of the game and let loose the blocks of war.
The original Bayonetta first appeared on PS3 and Xbox360 about four years ago and it was received with differing amounts of criticism. In light of the release of the sequel, Nintendo is releasing the first game for Wii U along with some new controls and new Nintendo-exclusive costumes for the leggy witch. Let’s see how it compares to the other console versions, shall we?
Disney Planes was a spin-off film of Disney’s Cars, telling the story of Dusty Crophopper, a crop dusting airplane who aspires to the big world of airplane racing. The film wasn’t a huge success with critics (note: not the primary audience), but I understand that kids (note: the primary audience) enjoyed it. Now we have the sequel to the film, subtitled Fire and Rescue, which continues Dusty’s tale. Let’s go for a spin while I tell you about it.
Summer is on its way to the southern hemisphere and soon the days will be so (unbearably) hot that your ice cream will melt. Speaking of, watch this deliciously hypnotic time-lapse video of ice cream melting.

The awesome dude in question is musician Anthony Vincent of Ten Second Songs, an outfit that creates custom songs and jingles. Following on from his previous 20 Styles covers of Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse” and Jason Darulo’s “Talk Dirty“, Vincent applies his considerable talents to covering one of Linkin Park’s most recognizable songs, “In the End”. He channels Enya, Bob Marley, Boyz II Men, and Frank Sinatra among the 20 styles used in his performance. Check it out below.
Fart jokes never get old for the small of mind. In this light, you may not have seen the fart-inspired parody of the infamously earwormy song, “Let It Go”. This is titled, quite appropriately, “Let One Go”, and the singing is about as close to Idina Menzel as you can possibly get without actually being Idina Menzel. Just a lot, lot ruder, of course.
