If you’re a Wii owner and haven’t updated to the new Wii U you’ll be soon to find out many features on the original Wii are being taken away. Why? Well of course it’s an older console and it was only a short time away from having this happen. If you’re looking to jump online and do much more you’ll have up till June of this year to do so. Nintendo has also provi...[Read More]

When the Wii came out, one of the things I was excited about more than anything else (except for the ability to play Twilight Princess) was the Virtual Console. I had always dreamed of playing the games that I missed out on in my childhood, and the Virtual Console was going to help me rectify my mistakes. I could now play Super Metroid, Paper Mario, Yoshi’s Story, Super Mario 64 (before hate...[Read More]
This Thanksgiving, we have many things to be thankful for. Some are thankful for the blessings in their lives, while some are thankful for having such loving friends and family. I’m thankful to have a new Zelda game to play through, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Link’s first true adventure for the Wii. The question is, however, does it soar above the clouds or does it plummet to the ground?
When your character looks like he’s jerking off with furious vigor just to recharge your primary weapon, you know you’ve got a gem of a game on your hands. Such is the case with No More Heroes: Heroes’ Paradise, the enhanced PS3 port of the original 2007 Nintendo Wii game No More Heroes. Look, the game isn’t perfect. It had flaws in the original Wii version, and it has flaw...[Read More]
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]
Sometimes I have difficulty figuring out just what I should be talking about in a given day. Thank you Nintendo for making today so very, very easy for me.
Zombie babies. There is more to see in this trailer than just zombie babies. However, I feel that zombie babies are the highlight of this thing. You may too.
I’m going to go a bit hipster on you right now. Before it was mainstream and popular, I read comics. Before it was mainstream and popular, I ran around on the playground pretending Rogue was my girlfriend and adamantium claws were popping out of my fists. Before it was mainstream and popular, I was collecting and trading Fleer Ultra cards with my like-minded friends. I am a X-Nerd, and I can...[Read More]
Pop Star’s pink puff-ball will be returning to the Wii, nearly one year after going 2-D–traversing hazardous stitching and weaves–in Epic Yarn, in his newest title: Kirby Wii (tentative title). Kirby Wii maintains the traditional Kirby gaming experience while adding on new-ish features to the mix. Kirby’s newest escapade in Pop Star heralds yet another one of Nintendo’...[Read More]
Superhero video games do not exactly have a reputation for excellence. For every X-Men Arcade, there are two Superman 64s. When you get into superhero video games that are released as tie-ins to superhero movies, it gets even worse. For every Spider-Man 2, there are five games like…well…Spider-Man 3. So while I await the release of any superhero game with great anticipation, due to the...[Read More]
Every now and then a game comes along that, while designed and marketed for a younger market, captures my interest and imagination in a uniquely satisfying way. No, I’m not talking about Barbie Horse Adventures. I’m talking about one of Activision’s E3 offerings, Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure.
