This week's games news

Old Console Game Cartridges

Part of this week's Glasgow film festival is Game Cats Go Miaow! (23-25 Feb).

Featuring comedian and all-round games hero, Robert Florence, there will be sessions on story writing for games, a geeks v gamers panel quiz, and 48 Hour Games based on Nordic Game Jam's hectic no-sleep game-creation events.

Current releases include Barbie Dreamhouse Party (Wii, DS, 3DS, Wii U), a vile pink-infested merchandise-shifter for Mattel's doll range; unlikely sounding but extremely playable football-based RPG Inazuma Eleven gets another sequel, Team Ogre Attacks (3DS); The Lego Movie Videogame (Xbox 360, PS3, PS Vita, Xbox One, PS4, Wii U, 3DS, PC) is up to the usual lofty standard of LEGO games; and originally released in 2010, DanganRonpa: Trigger Happy Havoc (PS Vita) is a very Japanese interactive murder mystery "novel" set in a high school.
