Mario Tennis has almost become an institution for Nintendo, in a way.  First introduced years ago on the Nintendo 64, it has since become an infatuation with Nintendo players, an accessible tennis game with multiplayer appeal and plenty of mini-games to keep players intrigued.  Now that tradition continues in the 3D realm, as Nintendo is bringing the series to the 3DS this May.

At E3, I took a Nintendo booth tour. I saw the Wii U, Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Kid Icarus--the list goes on. The one title that stood out to me, that I still wanted some hands-on time with was Super Mario 3D Land. I am the 99% that likes MOST Mario-themed game and salivates every time a new title hits a system. So that’s why when I was only able to sample a few levels in the new platformer--I wanted, nay, I needed to play more.

Do you just yearn to know why normally smart people make some stupid decisions that result in a hot steaming mess of personified WTF?

Pixar's sequel to the blockbuster hit Cars opens up in theaters today with high anticipation. While I wasn't a big fan of the original Cars film, I will be attending a viewing of the film sometime this week with high hopes that I will have restored faith in the franchise. Reviews have been quite dismal despite an impressive showing at the box office. However, some of that faith is already restored after spending some time with the new outing from Disney Interactive, Cars 2: The Video Game.

Yesterday, my fellow GamerLive.TV writer Skyler Bunderson posted an article on what he thinks Nintendo needs to do going into the future. What he came up was the thing that many of us have been hearing for quite some time--Nintendo needs to have better relationships with third party developers. Sure, Nintendo needs to, as does Microsoft and Sony. One reason why the Xbox 360 continues to be so well-liked by developers is the ease of development on the system--something that Sony was under fire for in the earlier stage of PS3 development.
