We’ve had Xbox, Playstation 3 and mobile devices all receive a chance to stand tall in the spotlight, and today we’re wrapping up those awards with good ol’ Nintendo. The venerable brand may not always be the most exciting developer when it comes to new games, but it’s got a solid record for bringing out solid titles based on their existing franchises. And that winner for 2012 is…
Yeah, I’m an unabashed Mario fan - so things like this make me all giddy inside. Even though the 2D Mario formula really hasn’t changed very much since the release of Super Mario Bros on the NES in 1985, the games are still a blast to play. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, I guess.
Nintendo’s confirmed that there’s a new a Super Mario Bros game coming. A return to classic, sidescrolling 2D magic, the game is headed for Nintendo’s once doomed new handheld, the 3DS.
It’s received the imaginative, and perhaps confusing title of New Super Mario Bros 2 - which is not a new version of Super Mario Bros 2, but rather a sequel to the incredible New Super Mario Bros for the DS, which has sold nearly 30 million units to date.
When I think of sexy videogame characters from both sexes I’d be thinking of Lollipop Chainsaw’s Juliet, maybe any of the assassins from Assassin’s Creed or the entire female cast of Dead or Alive.
What I don’t think of - or should I say I didn’t think of - was Mario from Super Mario Bros. Well that is until Meagan Marie posted up some pictures of herself cosplaying as Mario.
Nintendo’s flagship 3DS has been beset with sales problems. though anticipation for the device was exceedingly high, it’s found itself flustered at retail, often not even able to stand up to the performance of Sony’s now ancient PSP. Though the device dropped in price - by a staggering 40% in some regions - giving it a bit of a momentum boost, what it really needs is games; some big hitters to convince people that its worth the purchase.
Super Mario 3D Land is just such a game.
Since the launch of the Nintendo 3DS, we have all been waiting for the promised update that will not only add an online store to the system, but an internet browser too.
Your favorite err, "adult video websites" in 3D? More after the jump.

We are really excited because one of the big ones are confirmed for a 2011 release. More after the jump.
If you've needed that final excuse to get your hands on Nintendo's brand new 3D glasses-free handheld at some point in your future, then we may just have found what you were looking for.
Shigeru Miyamoto has announced in a press conference in Paris that Super Mario 3D is headed to the Nintendo 3DS and is a blend of some of his most famous recent Mario titles.
I look back on Super Mario Bros with equal parts fondness and reverence. Itâ€™s a game that defined the platform genre, and catapulted Nintendoâ€™s first home console to the incredibly lofty successes it experienced, and stands as one of the most important games ever created.
The gameâ€™s creator, Shigeru Miyamoto doesnâ€™t look back on it with as much awe as the rest of the gaming world though, admitting that looking at it now, on a big screen TV is a "a little embarrassing".
