Luigi, the most famous second-hand guy out there. We all know of him….as Mario’s brother but this guy’s popularity is more than some ‘main’ characters of other video game series! Since Nintendo has declared the year of 2013 to be the “Year of Luigi” and the fact that Luigi will be starring in many games this year ranging from Luigi Mansion 2 (release tomorrow), a new Mario & Luigi RPG game, and his own DLC pack for New Super Mario Bros U. (Nintendo Direct at it again!), I thought I might as well dip my hand into the hat. I think it is time for Luigi to get his own real game, outside his usual forte of higher-jump Mario in the Super Mario Bros series. Yes, yes we all know Luigi did have the Mario is Missing games and his most famous solo-adventure Luigi’s Mansion but I’m taking about a real Luigi adventure.
Last week Square Enix officially released the sales expectations of their recently released titles, including Tomb Raider, Sleeping Dogs and Hitman: Absolution. These expected numbers fell short, with Square Enix stating they “were very disappointed to see that the high scores did not translate to actual sales performance”.
Over the past year many gaming companies have closed due to poor sales, many more companies have lost money due to their overly high expectations of their games sales. With an industry that was booming only a few years ago, the drops seems extraordinarily high. But is that really the case? Hugh Simmonds and Jamie Briggs tackle the theory that popular AAA titles, might be the reason for seemingly low sales. Could these sales actually be strong, yet companies expect more due to games like Call of Duty, Halo and FIFA?
The Batman: Arkham games are amazing Batman games, and amazing games in general. Rumours have been appearing every now and then for a while regarding what the next Arkham game will be. There are rumours that it will be a prequel, as opposed to a sequel- I would prefer a sequel. No matter which way it turns out, I have got a few ideas on how the next Batman game can be better than Arkham Asylum and Arkham City (if that is even possible).
A long tale for another day…
It seems that teasing future projects in past ones is becoming something of a trend. The upcoming ‘Destiny’ from the ‘Halo’ creators was teased way back in ‘Halo: ODST’, and now we realise that Ubisoft did the same thing with the upcoming ‘Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag’.
As you may know, a few days ago, Ubisoft officially revealed the latest entry in the ‘Assassin’s Creed’ saga, entitled ‘Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag’. Trailers, screenshots, and even its very first criticism have all been circulating the internet like bees to honey. As it is the case, we now present you 6 things we’d like to see in this upcoming pirate-themed adventure.
Whether it was intentional or not (probably not, since only on Monday were we supposed to get our first glimpse on it), the world premiere trailer of ‘Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag’ has been leaked online, and we have decided to give you a full break down on it. If you haven’t seen it yet, you can check it out below.
Handhelds and home consoles: two completely different fish living in harmony within the same pond. They both garner to different audiences, with handhelds appealing to gamers on-the-go and home consoles appealing to the gamer who wants to sit at home in front of their TV and immerse themselves in an amazing experience. In premise, design and physical properties, they are completely different. With that said, how can Sony learn from PlayStation Vita’s launch to hopefully improve the launch of PlayStation 4? Although they are different, the errors made when launching the Vita should give a clear indication to Sony what is required from them when they launch PlayStation 4 this holiday season.

We all already know about the PS4 announcements, heck we practically were at the conference. From the new DualShock 4, to the “Share” feature, to the specs, to the “Eye”, to the no backwards compatibility, to the everything else! The Playstation 4 has intrigued many gamers even with how little we know; heck we don’t even know what the console looks like!
But, as we all are coming around to the next generation of gaming let’s not forget Nintendo already has their foot out the door with their system out and running, the Wii U. It is practically a fact that many people do not own a Wii U (evidenced by the 55,000 sales over the past month) but does this mean anything right now? No, is the answer, in case you were wondering, to the previous question. The Wii U, while out for about three months now, has massive potential as do all the other new consoles, but you know what makes the Wii U different? Games…well for now.
February 14th, the day everyone cuddles up with their loved one after a hard day of eating chocolate, smelling roses and enjoying a romantic dining experience. It is the day those who hold someone dear celebrate their love; from something as tiny as a love letter, to something extravagant as a Wii U console. It is a beautiful day and it makes you appreciate those you care about.
Though not everyone has the luck of having somebody to love.
Some may actually find that this day of love brings them down in the dumps, the ‘Love-Dumps’. Well, never fear, those ‘Love-Dumps’ are about to disappear and you are going on a one-way trip, to Love City. Population: you.
We here at analogaddiction have gathered the best scientific minds (Myself) and experts within the romance-sciences (I searched on Google) together and compiled the Top 5 Valentine’s Day Games (For singles). So if you happen to be without a loved one this year – nobody there to give you a backrub or tell you are beautiful you are – then get out that DualShock, NunChuck or that Kinect system and as the great Whitney Housten said, “I wanna Kinect, with somebody”.
