Ten Of The Most Iconic Outfits In Video Games
on October 24, 2014 at 06:33 PM
As the old adage absolutely does not go, clothes maketh the game character. The way a character is garbed can make or break their personality as well as their appearance.

Game Informer Watches Super Mario Bros. The Movie
on August 09, 2011 at 01:00 PM
The Super Mario Bros. games have an incredibly simple plot: Mario fights goombas and turtle-looking koopas on his way to save a princess. It’s not surprising that Hollywood felt it had to elaborate on the story when it made a major motion picture out of the property back in 1993. Unfortunately...
