Magzter – A Great Way To Read Magazines On Your Tablet [iPad]

One of the cool things that you can do on an iPad is read magazines. When the slate was first announced, it was touted as one of the main selling points, but it’s a feature that seems to have flown under the radar for the most part. Sure, Apple launched Newsstand, but most articles written on it are simply directions for tricking iOS into hiding it in a folder.

Video Game Collector’s Editions That Actually Held Value [MUO Gaming]

If, like me, you’ve given up on the Halo franchise, Halo 4 is the game you should give another chance, and here are the reasons.

Mario Gets Around – 4 Best Mario Spinoff Franchises [MUO Gaming]

Besides the platformers that Mario is known for, there are a ton of spinoffs that feature the famous plumber’s name and face attached to them. Almost all of the franchises with Mario’s name are of an incredibly high quality, so picking the best is no simple task. However, I have a great deal of experience playing all of them, so I am going to really think hard and choose the Mario spinoffs that are the top of the heap.
