Super Mario Maker was a marvel back on the Wii U. When it arrived last year, it rejuvenated the console in all the right ways, with online sharing abilities, tons of tools to use to your advantage, amiibo support and a lot of other features.

However, the Pokemon Company is at least ending with an beautiful high...[Read More]

A few weeks back, I was sitting at home doing what I do best at the hands of my Playstation 4, when all of a sudden I get a message from my buddy Erik. Now, to preface this, Erik is the biggest Legend of Zelda fan I know, introducing me to the franchise as a tot when he brought over his copy of Link to the Past, complete with a big strategy guide filled with hints, secrets, and lore.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery – or so I’ve heard. That might explain why 13AM Games and Dadako’s latest effort, Pirate Pop Plus, is a variation of Capcom’s classic Buster Bros., which recently came back to life as DotEmu’s Pang Adventures, but with a high-definition twist.
Nintendo announced, today, that Pokemon Sun and Moon are now the “best pre-selling games in Nintendo history”. They’ve beaten out all previous entries, every Mario game, and every Smash Bros.
