It’s that time again my friends, time where we announce our “Mobile Browser Game of The Week”. This has been a running thing on our website for the past couple of months in where we tell you guys what we have been playing on my smartphones mobile browser. These bit sized games can be played directly on your mobile browser either on your computer or on your cell phone and help pass the time if you are waiting in line or have kids that need some mobile entertainment. Our phones are always filled with games via their corresponding app store but this is a nice little alternative to that so we thought we would share what games we have been playing.
This week we have been knee deep in The Minions. Yes those adorable little creatures from the new movie have a plethora of mobile games from our friends over at Poki and some have been pretty decent to play on the go. One of the games that my son and I picked out right away is Minion go-kart. We are huge Mario Kart fans so this is the first one we enjoyed. While the game is no Mario Kart (nothing really is honestly), it reminded me of the old Off Road game titles and once we got the hang of everything, it was decently fun. Here s quick description of the game:
Race a Despicable Me go-kart to victory against rival Minions! You will speed across curvy cartoon tracks on your way to winning the World Cup. Follow the guideline arrows through each bend in the road, and steer clear of palm trees in Minion Kart
If something like this doesn’t fit your fancy, there are a ton of other titles that should entertain you for a bit. Check it out and let us know what you think. Until next time…
Here are the latest hardware sales from Japan. Looks like the PS4 enjoyed a nice boost in sales as the system almost doubled in sales from the previous week. Check out the list below and see what sold last week:
The good people at Gamespot have sat down with Nintendo of America boss, Reggie Fils-Aimé, and discussed many topics including this years E3. It’s an interesting interview so give it a watch if you’re a Nintendo fan. Although we (and pretty much everyone else) think Nintendo’s E3 was lackluster to say the least, it’s hard to deny that the Wii U seems to be picking up a little bit of steam this year. The console won’t go on to be Nintendo’s best to date but it does have a strong lineup of games headed its way this year and early next. We will see what happens.
Ever-advancing capabilities in technology and computer animation continue to bridge the gap between reality and the virtual world, with many of our favourite sports re-created in stunning detail by game developers. The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 lead the way in next generation gaming that offer the highest screen resolution, textures and output performance to immerse gamers into the experience of being on the battlefield or playing field themselves. It has created huge excitement and anticipation in the gaming community for the latest game releases, with Madden NFL 15 among those to really catch the eye of football enthusiasts who love taking their favorite team all the way to the Super Bowl. While gamers have been looking forward to sampling next generation game physics and animation on Madden NFL that surpass previous titles, there is always considerable interest and intrigue into who EA classify as the highly rated players, who make the all-important difference on betting market odds, on the game and whether it matches their real life status in the sport.
Although every game goes through a series of quality checks and beta tests to ensure every aspect of the game physics, graphics and animation work in tandem with each other, there can be certain errors which fall through the cracks and become un-noticed until the game is released. Errors can often be caused by slight coding miscalculations, although they can have a serious effect on how the game functions, particularly if they cause the game to crash.
Madden NFL 15 has unfortunately joined a growing list of games that have been released in 2014, only for gamers to encounter a number of glitches that required immediate updates or patches to correct the errors. The most high profile glitch which has caught considerable attention across the gaming community and social media network is a programming error that has made Cleveland Browns’ rookie linebacker Christian Kirskey, a man who stands at 6ft 2” and weighs 235 pounds, just 1ft 2” tall on the game. EA have stated that they have begun investigating into a number of early issues which have been reported by gamers, although Kirskey has taken it in good heart by airing his amusement at the Madden NFL 15 glitch on Twitter.
Next-gen American football
Aside from the high-profile glitch, Madden NFL 15 is upgraded in every single department to provide next generation console users with what could be the best football title in history. The whole presentation and menu design interface has received a major uplift to provide a much sleeker and elegant feel, while players who are new to the Madden game series can enjoy in-depth player information and analysis on their best position and overall season stats. Newcomers can also take part in Skills Training to further understand how each role on the field works and, more importantly, how each play can be utilized in the game to get the best results
Gamers can still enjoy being in complete control of every offensive and defensive play, with the intricate detail and camera angles providing the same enjoyable experience as watching an actual live television broadcast. Although EA have made slight tweaks to the overall gameplay functions, it has helped to create more of an impact that puts gamers closer to the action.

Pikmin 3 is a system seller. The game is a gorgeous achievement on Nintendo’s latest home console and joins the Wii U library as an essential title for the system.

Here’s the glorious, North American Wind Waker HD Box art for your viewing pleasure. The game has a number of improvements from its Gamecube counterpart including the ability to sail faster and a more streamlined sailing experience.
The Legend of Zelda Wind Waker HD is set to release this October.
Nintendo Japan has announced that the remastered version of the The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD will be available for purchase in Japan on September 26th. The HD remake won’t be launching until October in North America and Europe but given this new release date for the game, here’s hoping to an early October release.
I fully expect a new Nintendo Direct in the coming week and Nintendo will no doubt give us release dates for the rest of the year for Wii U titles.
