Candy-Coated Uh-Oh...

The candy-filled world of Viva Pinata is going wild with the upcoming Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise! Giving you a chance to step outside the gardens of the first game, it opens up the wild forests and frozen north of Canad... er, the Pinarctic. Filled with new Lymons, Tigermisus, Fizzlybears, Pengums, Polollybears, Camellos and Jameleons for you to lure into your garden, there's a lot more fun to be found for gamers of all ages when it arrives on September 2, 2008. Sweet!

The Legendary RPG Returns!

Chrono Trigger was the greatest video game RPG ever made. It came to the Super NES over 10 years ago and made the competition look like a pack of dorks with their pants around their ankles. Seriously, it was that good. And, it's coming to the Nintendo DS this holiday season! That means you'll have a chance to take the greatest video game RPG ever made with you everywhere as you experience the awesome soundtrack, meet the fantastic characters and explore the multiple endings of the incredible game story. Not only that, it also has a new dungeon and a wireless play mode. Wow.

San Vanelona = Yours. Own it!

That's right, the whole city. Everybody heard that Joe "Stinky" McFartsalott had eaten a mega bowl of chili for lunch so they cleared out of town and now it's all yours. Grab a board, pick your favorite spot and put your moves to the test. San Vanelona. Skate it. Own it. Click to download this video of the game in action.
