“Welcome to the Future” is how Trials Fusion greets you as you begin another chapter of the world’s most beloved trial bike game.  Featuring over 50 levels of hops, jumps and (for the first time) stunts, Trials Fusion attempts to jumpstart the franchise in an all new way for the future.  But how does this stack up with the last couple games?  I turn to a longtime series fan and prominent member of the Trials community for his input as we review Trials Fusion, now available at your local Best Buy and BestBuy.ca

Review: Disney Magical World [Nintendo 3DS] What if you could live in the Disney Universe?


When I was a child, I wanted to be a dentist despite the fact that I hated going to one. A friend of mine wanted to be a fire truck. Not a fire fighter. The truck. Something just about all of us wanted to do at one point or another, however, was go live at Disneyland, Disney World or somewhere in the world of Disneyana. We’ve since grown up and realized this isn’t actually possible, however, Disney Magical World aims to take our old dreams and ambitions and turn them into something. Disney Magical World answers the question of what life might look like if you DID, in fact, live with your friends and favorite Disney characters in the town of Castleton. Is it the stuff of dreams, or a huge nightmare?  Come take a look at this unique title.
