Denis Murphy writes- Between bouts of playing games to review them, I always still take the time to play other games. Recently I finished Lego The Lord of the Rings, the Lego adaptation of The Lord of the Rings film series. It pretty much perfectly follows the events of the films outside of all the dark content, and even reuses the dialogue from the film during its cut-scenes.

"Atelier Ayesha Plus: The Alchemist of Dusk (PS3, Vita) – January 13
Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition (Vita) – January 13
Saints Row IV: Re-Elected / Gat Out of Hell Expansion (Xbox One, 360, PS4, PS3, PC) – January 20"

A few months ago, I got a copy of the original I've Got to Run for the Wii U to review. While I didn't see much in terms of overall excitement, it became a recommended purchase due to the overall cheap price and the fact that it hooked my son more than Mario Kart 8 for a while. The game's "Complete Edition" now heads to the Wii U's handheld sibling, albeit at a higher price point. It it worth your time to hop along the kitchen counters again?

"Mr Miyamoto recently took part in an interview on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS social network, Miiverse. During the interview Miyamoto announced that there’s a Pikmin theme coming soon to the Nintendo 3DS theme shop. The charming new theme will be made available for users sometime next wee"

"It appears that The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D will contain significantly reduced loading times. This is based on a few comparison screenshots between the upcoming remake and the Nintendo 64 original. The shots look at the updated rendition of Clock Town, which seemingly connects to its different sectors in a way that will provide a more seamless experience to players. Nintendo previously confirmed that Majora’s Mask 3D includes enhanced graphics and added features for a smoother exper..."

This week gamers have seen a lot of misprints and scams at big name retailers across the country. As gamers on budgets we love to find a good deal but when people take it so far that companies are forced to change their price matching policies it hurts every consumer.

The Gamer’s Lounge Crew has put together a list of what they are hoping to pick up for Black Friday. Along the way, they are mentioning the “must buy” deals for video games on Black Friday, as well as which store has the best deal for consoles or the new AAA games.

They say that once every full moon in October, a red devil comes from the Ghoul Realm to wreack havoc onto humanity... but not this year, for the Ghoul Realm was in danger. Polarity braved through the Ghoul Realm's calamity to deliver this review of Gargoyle's Quest, a game that set its sights high and was a mostly competent game... except for the dungeons and bridge levels, which he found to be excellently designed and well, well worth going through the otherwise serviceable overworld and bo...

The latest update for Super Smash Bros. 3DS has been made available for download from the Nintendo e-shop. Balance changes have apparently been made, and also changes to improve playing experience.

Perhaps this game is worth considering if your child enjoys the Poptropica website. I just don’t recommend paying full price for a game that is available for 90% less on a different platform. It’s not even that good of a game so I would recommend picking it up on sale if at all. It is family friendly though, I’ll give it that.

It's that time of year again: another fall season brings yet another Sonic game. Through thick and thin, the fastest thing alive's managed to chug along in his existence from one reinvention to another. Tradition would tell us that a Sonic game is something we'd be more than wary of. What Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal delivers is nothing short of a cautionary tale, full or promise and short on flair.

On this episode of The Gamers Lounge Podcast John, Erik and Nathanael talk Assassins Creed, Blizzcon announcements, Obama, game delys, Black Friday deals and more!

I was pleasantly surprised by The Legend of Dark Witch. I expected a throwaway cheap eShop title, and instead found a really solid and fun 2D shooter/platformer. Despite some minor flaws, a few wacky translations, and a potential bug, there is a lot of fun here.

GG3 writes: "Publisher Circle Entertainment has announced its latest in a line of Nintendo 3DS releases. Castle Conqueror Defender will be out on the North American eShop on November 12, 2014."

"According to a post on Nintendo's website, the update promises to "adjust the game balance" and "fix some of the problems." It also warns that if you download the patch, which is required for online play, you'll be unable to play offline multiplayer with users who stick with Version 1.0.3.

Replay data saved in 1.0.3. cannot be played back once Smash receives the new update, so commit those awesome moments to memory."

"If you are looking to buy a ps4 this holiday season, Best Buy is offering a PS4 console bundled with a digital copy of The Last Of Us Remastered and a hard copy of GTA V. That’s a $510 value for just $399. If Xbox one is your gaming console of choice then sail on in and pick up the Assassin’s Creed Xbox One bundle."

We are getting real close to November 21st and getting closer to quite an eventful day with the release of Super Smash Bros. for Wii,Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire on Nintendo 3DS. This also marks the first day for the all-new amiibo toys that will bring supercharged gaming experience and works for several Wii U titles. The first amiibo lineup contains twelve of the most iconic characters in the gaming world: Mario, Princess Peach, Link, Samus, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Pikachu, Kir...

Sony, Nintendo, Microsoft and the largest video game publishers have teamed up to bring “The Game Awards”. The very first event will debut on December 5, 2014, live from the Axis Theater in Las Vegas.

Super Smash Bros. producer Masahiro Sakurai has tweeted an image out of the Smash Bros. themed New 3DS XL. As you already know, there is no release date yet for the New 3DS XL outside of Japan yet, but hopefully when there is, this theme will be available at launch.

November should be know as broke-vember since there are so many great games coming out. Gamers are going to have to choose where and what they spend their money on this month. The Gamer’s Lounge has looked at the pre-order bonuses for several AAA games coming out this month and its going to come down to gamers’ preferences for DLC and choice of retailer.

Nintendo has just announced that The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask will be getting a remake on the Nintendo 3DS and 2DS and will be released Spring 2015.

Check out the trailer below:



There will also be a special edition(confirmed in Europe so far) that will include a pin badge, steelbook, a double sided poster and the game itself. No price has been given.
