Hey MANIACS!

This week we got to have a play of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D on Nintendo 3DS and we liked it!  It’s a remake of an old Nintendo 64 version which was really popular, but with much better graphics and played in 3D! There are some new gameplay features that we think you’re going to love. Check out the trailer!

Hey MANIACS!

Right now we’re really into Thor: God of Thunder the video game! It’s out now for PS3, Xbox 360, Wii and DS. The DS version is our fave – it’s a side-scrolling brawler with plenty of bad dudes to fight.  Check out our preview in MANIA’s June issue today! Look for Po from Kung Fu Panda 2 on the cover! We don’t have a trailer for the DS verison but here’s a glimpse of the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions!

Take flight with Green Lantern!

April 19th, 2011 by Ange | No Comments | Leave a comment | Filed in Games |

Hey MANIACS!

Check out the trailer for the new Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters video game!  The character model for Hal Jordan looks a lot like Ryan Reynolds, who plays the Lantern in the film – the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions have his voice too, so expect an authentic cinematic experience! We’re really pumped to try his awesome powers. We hear you get to use a “Power Ring” that lets you conjure a whole bunch of “hard-light” weapons to use on your enemies – including a gatling gun, giant fists and maybe even a fighter jet!? You can fly too!


The game releases for XBox 360, Wii, PS3, Nintendo DS, and 3DS on June 15. That’s just in time for the new Green Lantern movie out June 16! Be sure to stay tuned to MANIA for more updates!

Aussie Teen is World Rubik’s Cube Champion!

December 1st, 2010 by MANIA | No Comments | Leave a comment | Filed in Games |

How quickly can you solve the puzzle of a Rubik’s Cube? A few days? A few hours? Several minutes? How about 6.77 seconds? It sounds crazy but it’s true! 14 year old Melbourne teen Feliks Zemdegs can solve a Rubik’s Cube in about the same time it takes us to tie our shoelaces!

The previous record was 7.08 seconds and was held by Erik Akkersdijk from the Netherlands.

Feliks was 12 years old when he first started playing with the Rubik’s Cube. He learned how to solve them by watching videos on You-Tube. Next up for Feliks is the Asian Championships in Bangkok.

One step closer to living in Super Mario Land!

November 12th, 2010 by MANIA | No Comments | Leave a comment | Filed in Games |

What’s the next best thing to living in Super Mario Land? How about living on Super Mario Bros Avenue? The Spanish suburb of Arcosur in Zaragoza, Spain is naming the streets in one of its new residential developments after video games and video game characters! Why? They’re trying to attract more young first home buyers to the area, and so the local government is naming streets after Super Mario Bros, The Legend of Zelda, Sonic the Hedgehog, Space Invaders and plenty more games and characters!

Do you think it will work? Would you like to live on a street named after Super Mario Bros or Sonic the Hedgehog?
