Tomorrow's Nintendo Direct covers 3DS and Wii U games

Been a while! Nintendo will stream its next Direct presentation tomorrow at 2:00pm Pacific. There will be "updates on upcoming titles for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS" which, yeah, not much to go on. Hoping to hear more about the 2...

Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire ad probably isn't FAA compliant

Look, kid -- there's a lot of work that goes into flying somewhere. All your liquids have to be in a tiny bag, your seat needs to turn into a flotation device in the event of a water landing, and there has to be plenty of gi...

136 years is a long time to be banned from Smash Bros.

Some Smash Bros. players on 3DS are finding themselves the unlucky recipients of an unfortunately long ban from the game -- 136 years. Well, it's most likely a glitch, but that probably doesn't come as much consolation t...

Ultimate NES Remix doesn't seem all that Ultimate after all

A few months ago Nintendo hinted at a new SKU for their NES Remix series -- Ultimate NES Remix for the Nintendo 3DS. Many fans were pretty excited at the prospect of a brand new entry in portable form, anxious to se...

Nintendo has plans for Amiibo cards, smaller figures

The Amiibo figures hitting shelves later this month won't necessarily resemble every near-field communication toy Nintendo has in the works. Speaking at the Q&A session following Nintendo's semiannual investor meeting, Sh...

Review: Woah Dave! photo
Review: Woah Dave!
by Jonathan Holmes

[Note: Jonathan Holmes' name appears in the Special Thanks section of Woah Dave!'s credits. No one knows why. One guess is it's because Jonathan and Woah Dave! creator Jason Cirillo had a decent conversation at PAX East 2014, during which time Jonathan was wearing a Woah Dave! t-shirt. Maybe that's it.]

Woah Dave! is a game that you don't want to get excited for. Any hype at all, even the slightest praise, might ruin your chance of getting into it. Ironically, there are plenty of reasons why some people can't help but be excited for Dave. For one, it's the latest game from Choice Provisions (formerly known as Gaijin Games), who have quite a large and dedicated following chomping at the bit for a new game from the studio. Not only that, but Woah Dave! has both an exclamation point and the word "woah" in the title, as though the game itself is excited that it exists. 

If you go into the game expecting to say "woah!" right away, you may be disappointed. Like Super Crate Box, Geometry Wars, or Samurai Gunn, it's not a game that works to impress at first. That makes it all the more surprising when you discover how deep, intense, and unpredictable this game of controlled chaos can get.

Nintendo: New 3DS is the best-selling remodel so far

GameStop is giving out Diancie for Pokémon X and Y
by Jordan Devore

Shiny Gengar is no more (hope you got yours!) but another distribution event for Pokémon X and Y has taken its place. Today through November 16 at GameStop, you'll be able to score a free code for the Legendary Rock/Fairy-type Pokémon Diancie.

Once Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are released on November 21, you'll then be able to bring your Diancie to a Pokémon Center in either game to obtain the Diancite Mega Stone necessary for its Mega Evolution. What's the new form look like? Less ... chunky.

Smash Bros. 3DS update vaguely addresses balance issues

The first post-release update to Super Smash Bros. for 3DS is a bit of an enigma. Nintendo doesn't give the specifics of it, just that it'll "make for a more pleasant gaming experience." We'll have to take your word...
