And lots of Nintendogs
The latest collection of My Nintendo rewards has now gone live in Europe, with lots of games beginning with the letter "F" - and lots of dogs - being present this time around. One highlight, in particular, is Level-5 RPG Fantasy Life, which is seeing a discount for the first time. We enjoyed the 3DS adventure when...

Cybernator - or Assault Suits Valken as it is known in Japan - is one of the finest action titles on the SNES, boasting awesome visuals, inventive levels and one of the most authentic representations of military mecha yet seen in gaming. What's even more amazing is that the game was designed almost...
