Game Collections - Show Your Score / Reviews
Search filters are also in place for those curious about how many four player games are in a collection, or which genre is most popular for example. I own 44 Nintendo games, within that have 32 titles for four players and out of those 32 games, two are shooters. You may discover aspects about your own collection that you may not know!

We've also expanded our genres to home in on more relevant games - minimum players, console and publisher can also be applied.

It's almost been a decade since we let loose this Nintendo baby on the world and we want to continue covering the House of Mario for many years to come. With the Wii U touching down in a matter of weeks, the 3DS going from strength to strength, there hasn't been a better time to rejuvinate and reinvigorate the Cubed3 experience. We may disagree with some of Nintendo's decisions from time to time, but there's something extremely special about the company, its games and consoles that keeps the craving strong and the meal incredibly delicious.
I would like to personally thank the entire Cubed3 Team for sticking by the project, shaping all our new features, including a special thanks to Az "Azuardo" Elias who has been our resident bug tester and suggestions chap throughout development. Plus of course our readership and members who, without sounding as cheesy as Wario's bottom, have stuck with us for the duration.
I hope you enjoy our new features, design and please do check back for the latest updates. We wouldn't be here without you!
Jorge Ba-oh, Founder & Managing Director
Cubed3 has been a part of my life for nearly ten years now, and with the re-launch of the site, readers will be seeing a wealth of new features that make for a much more streamlined browsing experience. This step forward also sees a wider focus start to come into play, with coverage of the latest technology, non-Nintendo subjects, the long-awaited return of C3 Radio and much more from the dedicated staff members. Brace yourselves for a new era of Cubed3!
Adam Riley, Operations Director
It's been a long time coming, but finally the new Cubed3 is here, and it looks fantastic! Huge credit must be given to Jorge for coming out with such a brilliant new look for the site, and more so for putting up with my constant pestering of suggestions and errors I kept spotting! Hopefully now as members we can keep the site active and a welcoming and friendly community to discuss video games and everything else in between. I believe Cubed3 will now be much more engaging and fun for readers with all of the new features added, whilst also being an excellent resource of the latest video games news. I'm wishing all the best for the future of this great website and look forward to interacting with all of you across the new Cubed3!
