Nintendo Download Highlights for June 26th

Nintendo Download Highlights for June 26th

If you’re like me you always want to know what titles are coming your way when it comes to games. Nintendo has released a detailed list of what titles are releasing and coming up to the Nintendo Wii U and 3DS Systems for the next week. Now be ready for the really long list of games, demos, sales and more coming this week directly from the press release. (Personally, I can’t wait to pla...[Read More]

Review: Stick it to the Man (Wii U)

Review: Stick it to the Man (Wii U)

Your day starts out like any other: another long, boring and seemingly endless day at the hard hat testing company. The hours stretch on and on across a figurative distance so great that only a literal mathematician could compute them. Each unending stretch of hours is punctuated only by the cranial blunt force trauma you willingly endure for a meager salary. Finally, a whistle’s shrill tone...[Read More]

Review: Child of Light (Wii U)

Review: Child of Light (Wii U)

When I was a child, I believed in magic. There were dragons that lived in concealed caves beneath the tightly packed soil of my backyard, and an ancient crone enchantress that lived in the house across the street. She was a quiet, reclusive sort of witch and I felt it was my duty to keep any other children in my neighborhood away from her front stoop, lest they be turned into some creepy crawly cr...[Read More]

Mario Kart 8 Wii U Bundle + Promo Coming to North America

Mario Kart 8 Wii U Bundle + Promo Coming to North America

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]

Review: Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars (3DS)

Review: Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars (3DS)

Most people who have ever brought a child into the world would tell you that it is a life changing, magical experience. A lot of people find it to be so transformative of an experience that the very essence of who they are, all the way down to their speech patterns, can change. Phrases that sound like “whats a mattew wid daddy’s widdle man” become just as commonplace as a bottle of pacifier ...[Read More]

Review: Pokémon Battle Trozei (3DS)

Review: Pokémon Battle Trozei (3DS)

I’ve publicly declared that regardless of how much I may adore Pokémon games, I do not care for the spin-offs. It’s actually quite embarrassing just how public I have gotten with these declarations. I proclaimed my undying love for only the core of the Pokémon franchise as I walked up and down the aisle of a city bus. I have hijacked the loudspeaker at my local supermarket just to expl...[Read More]

Review: Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze (Wii U)

Review: Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze (Wii U)

Our scene opens on a majestic fortress, perched on a tower that seems to reach impossible heights above the leafy canopy of trees. It stands as stoic sentiment to the lush and fertile land below it, and the materials and design lead us, the viewers, to believe that it is an ancestral home and that whatever family inhabits it has done so for countless generations. Inside, the family gathered around...[Read More]

Review: VVVVVV (3DS)

Review: VVVVVV (3DS)

One thing I’ve never really been shy talking about is how old I am. Being 32 years young means I am older than the average gamer, but also too young to remember when home video game systems were really getting off their feet. The first console my family owned was a Nintendo Entertainment System, but that doesn’t mean the charms of its predecessor’s games are lost on me. I do have...[Read More]

Review: Yoshi’s New Island (3DS)

The winter freeze is sticking around MUCH longer than we’d like it to. It is this time of year that I spend the most time thinking about a magical tropical getaway. Unfortunately, tropical islands are filled with terrible things: mosquitoes, smoke monsters, sea food and those itchy coconut bras that never seem to fit me right. Imagine hitting the beach with your favorite electronic book read...[Read More]

Nintendo to Showcase Indie Game Support at GDC

Nintendo to Showcase Indie Game Support at GDC

Nintendo has announced that it’ll be showcasing a huge variety of fun and new indie games that use Unity Pro for its Wii U console. However, as most people can assume, the monthly cost of a Unity subscription can be hard for smaller indie developers. Don’t worry! Nintendo has an agreement that will grant approved developers access to Unity for free. During GDC, attendees will witness h...[Read More]

Rumor Mill: Yoshi’s New Island 3DS Bundle

Rumor Mill: Yoshi’s New Island 3DS Bundle

The Internet rumor mill is all abuzz with talk of a Yoshi themed 3DS XL bundle, which is said to be coming out at the same time as Yoshi’s New Island. All of the artwork circulating is bogus, but the idea of a bundle makes sense considering the Mario and Luigi: Dream Team and The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between World 3DS XL bundles that coincided with those games’ release dates. Nintendo may be ha...[Read More]

Review: Bravely Default (3DS)

Review: Bravely Default (3DS)

In an expansive temple, a young woman bows her head in prayer before an enormous hovering crystal, which appears to be the only source of light in the room. Within moments, an inky blackness wraps its misty tendrils around the crystal and stains it dark. It is in that same instant that a giant chasm opens up in the earth and swallows a nearby village whole, leaving but one survivor. That is where ...[Read More]
