This Week In Games: Mario Kart 7 And That's About It!

Deep breath folks. Almost all of this year's big kahoona burgers have been released, and now it's time for me to take stock, try and finish Skyrim, then play the game I'm arguably most excited about -- Skyward Sword. This week is a little quieter compared to the insanity that was November. Only one question remains - To Mario Kart 7, or to not Mario Kart 7. (Worst sentence ever)

Adventures of Tintin (360/PS3/Wii/PC) What is it? Movie tie in for Tintin. Should you care? I saw the movie, thought it was a bit bleh. Have no interest in ever playing this game.

Assassin's Creed Revelations (PC) What is it? It's a me! Ezio! Should you care? Yeah, still a game worth playing. Even if it may be the least essential installment of the game.

Mario Kart 7 (3DS) What is it? The last big hitter of the year. Should you care? For 3DS owners, this is an absolute must.


    Bring back Rock 'n' Roll Racing!!!!

    After the Assassin's Creed 2, I'd say Assassin's Creed Revelations is my second favourite in the series. You do get the feeling that its stalling for Assassin's Creed 3, though. Well worth playing assuming the PC version doesn't have any messed up DRM.

    2492-4140-7879 - I will be on-line and ready for turtle shells that come my way.

      get ready to feel my wrath! For all those with friend codes listed i have added you. Here's my friend code 4167-4552-1927

        Thanks all, will add you all. Goes without saying friend codes don't really get shared around these parts eh.

    Finally, my 3DS shall receive some real love.

    Wait, was that a little creepy? I think that might have been a little creepy.

    Didn't like seeing yourself on the big screen Mark?

    LIES! NO YOU LIE! Please tell me you LIE!

    Oh crap no i remember... TOR isn't getting an Australian release here. Stuuuupid EA. Now i have to get it off Amazon...

    You failed to mention that this is a SATURDAY release!!!!!!!

    Although, our track record this year on dates..........


    I may kinda want a 3DS now... But I have no dollars :-(

    This is what i bought my 3DS for and i completely forgot about this game, to be honest i nearly forgot i even owned a 3DS at all.

    I'll pick this up when i get some money.

    Nope, no more new release purchases til SSX in the new year.

    Will wait for after Christmas sales for some cheap scores though.

    I spent a few bucks downloading the DSi versions of Airport Mania and Plants vs Zombies for my 3DS, and along with the 10 Ambassador NES games, and Mario 3D Land, I'm playing an absolute tonne of 3DS at the moment. I love the little finger-print magnet that could. Played Mario 3D land in 3D the whole time, and loved every second of it. Mario Kart will be awesome! I've got three friends who also own a 3DS, and we're going to have a blast with this game. It's release can't come soon enough :-) Also, as crazy and unexpected as it sounds, since I bought Skyward Sword, I haven't even thought about Skyrim (which I played for 20 hours or so since its release). Never thought a game could so quickly draw me away from the Skyrim masterpiece, but there you have it, Zelda ftw. I'm currently up to Eldin Volcano dungeon.

    Also out this week is the new Professor Layton aaaannnnddd... Wii Sports plus Wii Sports Resort on the one disc. OMGVALUE.

    Here's hoping that Mario Kart gets its street date broken. Saturday is a ridiculous day to release it, I have the day off on Friday...

    Finally, my wallet can recover... oh wait. Christmas... FUUUUUUUUUUUU--
