If you played video games in the 90′s, you knew there were two mascots fighting for your gaming dollars: Nintendo’s Mario and Sega’s Sonic the Hedgehog. Both starred in awesome games, both had cameos in comics and both, both were damn endearing. Once Sega bowed out of the console market that left Sonic a free agent. Since then, we’ve seen him on the Xbox 360, PS3 and even a Nintendo console or two. That was shocking but the latest from Sega is even more shocking.
Sega and Nintendo have struck a deal to make Nintendo the official home of Sonic! That’s right geeks, long time rivals Mario and Sonic will now permanently live under the same console roof. Sega will still make the games but they will only be on anything Big N, at least for the next three titles.
Back in my childhood gaming I would have never thought, I imagined it, that the foes would become BFFs. Now they can braid each other’s hair, make pies and chase after evil doers together forever. Chalk this one up to the strangest exclusive ever!

Nintendo guilty of 3D patent infringement.

A judge just dropped the bomb on Nintendo, finding the gaming giant guilty of patent infringement for the 3D tech they use in their popular 3DS. A former Sony guru, Seijiro Tomita, sued Big N for a patent over tech he built and demonstrated to honchos way back in 2003. The company obviously denies the charges.
Tomita wanted $9.80 for every 3DS Nintendo sold, an amount that would have netted him a hair over $292 million. The judge instead awarded him damages of a much smaller $30.2 million. Nintendo has kept mum on the situation but we can be safe in assuming they will appeal the decision. It would be proper of them just to pay the man but we all know that’s not how it works in corporate settings.
What do you geeks think Nintendo will do? Set those comments on fire after the break!
A Geeky Game Review- Castlevania Lords Of Shadow:Mirror Of Fate

The Castlevania game series has spanned many generations of consoles since its debut in 1986 on the NES. The legendary series recently brought the battle of the Belmonts vs Dracula to Nintendo’s 3DS with Castlevania Lords Of Shadows: Mirror Of Fate. Konami graciously sent a copy of the game to Don’t Hate The Geek and I had the pleasure of checking it out.
Mirror Of Fate is a direct sequel set 25 years after the most recent reboot, Castlevania Lords Of Shadow. It focuses on Gabriel Belmonts descendants and will effectively set up events of the upcoming Castlevania Lords Of Shadow 2. However, I found the 2D side-scrolling action-adventure Mirror Of Fate, closely resembles the classic Symphony Of The Night more so than the more open and blatant action adventure of Lords Of Fate.
In all honesty, the story of Mirror Of Fate, as well as most Castlevania games is not its strong point. And by that I mean it just tends to play second fiddle to the gameplay. Which is not to say there aren’t great moments of Belmont family history and one that comes to a boiling point in a knock down drag out battle of father and son. I’ll be looking forward to seeing how the story plays out in the upcoming Lords Of Shadow 2. Read more: A Geeky Game Review- Castlevania Lords Of Shadow:Mirror Of Fate
