Phase 2 of The International is now well underway, with many more games being played throughout the night (our time). Yesterday's games really mixed up the group standings, showing that the Chinese are looking to be dominant this year.

Here at (A proud partner of Doofenshmirtz Evil Incorporated), we’re all massive fans of Borderlands 2. We’ve sunk dozens and dozens of hours into the game collectively, and the idea of some Borderlands on the go is actually rather intriguing. So what’s the game like then? Rather crap it seems.

April Fools is like Christmas for writers. It’s an excuse to exercise some creative talent, while an old Scrooge in the comments section yells bah humbug at everything posted. There’s a lot of great content posted on the first day of April. But this was some of the best.

One of my most eagerly anticipated games of forever, Rayman Legends, is out on the US today and in the rest of the world of Friday.

Disney Infinity may have launched already in the good ol’ US of A, but surprisingly, few sites have actually reviewed the game. I’m forking out some of my own cash for a starter pack, so expect videos and impressions soon. If you can’t wait for my humbly influential opinion though, here’s what those other websites had to say about the game.

While we had our own bit of fun yesterday with an obvious April Fools joke, we weren’t the only folks around that decided to join in on that annual tradition of pretending to be the Daily Mirror. The gaming industry has had a long-standing habit of throwing a few bones our way over the year, and yesterday was no different. Here’s a look at what fooled who.

Can it be? A game worth having on the ailing Nintendo 3DS? While I’m keeping mine solely as a Pokemon machine right now (PI PIKACHU!), it looks like the latest Castlevania game might be worth blowing the dust off of that handheld console for. Here’s what the critics are saying so far.

Two years after Crysis 2 was released to groaning under-equipped PCs, and it’s time for part trois to once again set a few 3D benchmarks on fire. The scores are in, and the general consensus is that Crysis 3 is one purdy looking game overall. Here’s a look at what the critics who got the game before us are saying.

The third chapter in “Oh crap nononono gross necromorphs I want my mommy” or Dead Space 3, may only be out on Friday for us European consumers, but that doesn’t mean that other territories aren’t jamming a plasma cutter right now.
