December 5: wallet threat level Mario

, | Games

You’d think Mario-themed games would be out in time for the all-important Thanksgiving shopping weekend. You’d be wrong. This week sees two arguably tardy releases for Nintendo systems. Mario Kart 7 for the Nintendo 3DS adds a new dimension to the same old game and nothing else. Fortune Street for the Wii may very well be one of the weirdest surprises I’ve had all year. What I thought was a Nintendo themed Monopoly game is instead an oddly hardcore boardgame. Stand by for full reviews of both games.
