The Nintendo 3DS is a terrific gaming machine in a number of ways. It's powerful, portable, lets you take pictures of your dog in 3D, etc. But the machine does have one fundamental flaw. Its rechargeable battery typically loses its charge--especially if you've got the 3D slider at maximum--within 3 to 5 hours.

Enter the Hyperkin Powerplus for the 3DS.

2K Sports, makers of the excellent MLB 2K series, is currently putting the finishing touches on a much more light-hearted take on America's favorite pastime. Imagine, if you can, Phillies hurler Cliff Lee working a full count on SpongeBob Square Pants while a capacity crowd at the Poseidome--the fictional underwater ballpark based on the SpongeBob universe--rises to its feet.

It's those kinds of bizarre moments--when fact meets fiction, and the fiction gets funny--that Nicktoons MLB will provide.

Cars 2 is the newest video game installment in the Cars franchise and, obviously, ties in with the movie, Cars 2.  The game takes on a whole new approach, breaking away from a strictly kids-oriented game, to creating a toned-down kids version of the popular racing game “Blur.”  In all honesty, this probably was a great move, as people of all ages, not just kids anymore, will be interested in the game.
