While I'm a Mario fan, I was utterly baffled by the appeal of the four-player co-op play introduced in New Super Mario Bros. Wii. People tell me: "It's chaotic and fun!" But all I ever experienced was that little jerk Luigi distracting me while I try to make a precision jump. In Super Mario 3D World, however, four player multiplayer manages to avoid the chaos found in New Super Mario Bros. and it's actually preferable to playing alone. In Super Mario 3D World, momentum is much less important. Momentum counts for a lot in New Super Mario Bros., whether it be jumping over a chasm or dodging an enemy. Having three other players around can affect that momentum, which could lead to a lot of funny but unnecessary deaths. In general, the action is slower and more measured in Super Mario 3D World than the typical 2D Mario game. There's more on-screen real estate to work with, too, lessening the chance of running into some errant enemy or falling off the screen by mistake. Super Mario 3D Land gives the modern Mario series a much-needed jolt with its tweaks to the game's precision of movement.Continue reading Finding Mario's co-op sweet spot with Super Mario 3D WorldFinding Mario's co-op sweet spot with Super Mario 3D World originally appeared on Joystiq on Wed, 09 Oct 2013 13:00:00 EST.

In what may be the most tongue-in-cheek sale in the company's history, GOG's "Shutdown Promo" lampoons the state of our nation's cryogenically frozen legislative branches with free games for government employees that have been affected by the shutdown, and 50-percent discounts for the rest of us. Government employees that email a picture of themselves holding their furlough notification letter to thanksobama at GOG dot com (seriously) will receive free copies of the following: Capitalism Plus, Capitalism 2, Tropico Reloaded, The Guild Gold Edition, Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri, Theme Hospital and Redneck Rampage Collection. For everyone else, all of these games are available for under $5. The public sale lasts until 8:59 a.m. Eastern tomorrow, but government employees have until noon Eastern on Friday, October 11 to send in their pictures. Oh also, on a totally unrelated note how serious of a crime is it to impersonate a government employee?
