If you remember the other day I made a post that Europe is getting a special Mario Kart 8 Wii U bundle. It isn’t themed to the game, but will include the game. However you could pick from Team Mario or Team Luigi that has skins to those characters. Today Nintendo of America made an awesome announcement for Mario Kart 8 fans here in North America that has to deal with a Mario Kart 8 Bundle an...[Read More]
To quote Digital Reality, developer of SkyDrift: “The goal is simple: if you can’t overtake them, shoot them down!” That line epitomizes SkyDrift’s attitude and gameplay almost perfectly. What you have here is more than just an aerial arcade racer. What you have here is an aerial arcade racer with power-ups.

I’ve been gaming since around the age of five, and up until last November I thought I had achieved some of the most rewarding and inspiring moments of my gaming life: catching ’em all the first time, vanquishing Ganon for the first time, the list goes on. But something happened over the course of 48 hours from November 19 to November 21 that easily put all of those achievements to sham...[Read More]
Nintendo is bringing motorized mayhem back to the race track on the 3DS with a new Mario Kart title slated for release this holiday season. The tentatively titled Mario Kart brings with it some new courses, karts and multiplayer functions that take advantage of the 3DS’ capabilities.
The Nintendo E3 Press Conference may be over, but that doesn’t mean the excitement has waned. From the get go, Nintendo blew us away.

We were originally led to believe that a man named Bill would be the one doing the live demo, since Shigeru Miyamoto, a mad genius, seemed like...[Read More]

Mario Kart Wii is no different than previous releases in the series. It introduces motorbikes as vehicles, with the 50cc races being confined to karts, 100cc confined to motorbikes, and 150cc offering a choice. While I experience...[Read More]
Well, we started the week without really meaning to talk about the Wii every day, but it happened, so we decided to call it our Wii Week. It was an interesting week filled with highs and lows. On the one hand, we paid off a few house expansions in Animal Crossing, and I fucking RULE at Mario Kart, but on the other hand, Francine is a dirty bitch who robbed me blind. I really fucking hate Francin...[Read More]
Wednesday night, I went on a fishing bonanza, filling my Animal Crossing house with fish to sell the next day in one big selling run. Last night, a little while after I got home, I made my sales, getting myself up to over 85,000 bells (Animal Crossing currency), a hefty sum indeed. I continued fishing, wanting to break the 100,000 mark, when I came across one of my town’s residents. Franc...[Read More]
Well, since Monday was heavily focused on the Wii, and Tuesday documented a Wii-related experience, I figured we might as well make it Wii Week and run three more days of Wii blog posts. I bet you’re all excited about that! Lindsey and I have been playing a lot of Animal Crossing: City Folk since we got it. It is the most played game we own now. When we got it, I figured that would be her...[Read More]
