Review: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D photo
Review: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D
by Chris Carter

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask is unlike any other Zelda game in the series. For instance, there's no sign of the franchise's classic villain Ganon, and no Zelda outside of a quick flashback reference.

It's also a decidedly darker affair, with strong themes of depression, anxiety, and general angst due to the impending end of the world. Heck, there's even straight-up voyeurism quest and the assumption of dead people's identities.

Majora has a lot of really cool ideas, and most of them are augmented by the slight upgrades found in Majora's Mask 3D.

Yep, Rodea: The Sky Soldier still looks beautiful

If there's one videogame trope that I'm a sucker for, it's floating islands. It's part of the reason why I love Jumping Flash! 2 and Skies of Arcadia, and it's the same reason why I think Rodea: The Sky Soldier looks am...

Retro City Rampage's New 3DS update is out in Europe

If you own Retro City Rampage DX on the 3DS, you should have an update ready for you now in Europe, and "soon" in North America. The delay for the latter is due to a Nintendo certification process that isn't qu...

Nintendo Download: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D

I hope you aren't too excited for the Wii U eShop, because all it's getting is Blek, Breath of Fire, and Paparazzi. Ubisoft is still having that sale for a few more days. Yep, that's it. The 3DS has a killer week yet again th...

Beard View: Yo-Kai Watch

I was worried about Yo-Kai Watch when it was first announced. Putting out a manga, anime and game series all in one fell swoop is no small financial undertaking. Given that Level-5 isn't a multi-billion dollar outfit, they h...

Guide: Where you can import amiibo, and where you can find rares photo
Guide: Where you can import amiibo, and where you can find rares
by Chris Carter

Unless my Meta Knight pre-order is screwed up by Best Buy, I'll have every existing amiibo on-hand by next week. A lot of people have asked how I'm so successful at getting some of the rarer figures, and the answer is "helping out a lot of friends, and getting help from friends."

But there are a lot of ways to procure them. Here are a few that will allow you to sidestep scalpers on eBay.

The Unova starter giveaway is live in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire photo
The Unova starter giveaway is live in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire
by Jordan Devore

The codes for Serperior, Emboar, and Samurott in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are now all redeemable. Just head into the Mystery Gift option and choose "receive via code," then type in POKEMON497, POKEMON500, and POKEMON503, respectively.

These Pokémon are packing hidden abilities (Contrary, Reckless, and Shell Armor), so it's worth setting aside a couple of minutes to nab them before leaving 'em inside a box, unloved.

When this distribution event was announced, I asked which of the three monsters was best, and things got weird. I expect that to happen in all Pokémon posts these days. Or all posts, really.

Nintendo details official process for transferring data to your New 3DS

Since the New 3DS is almost out, a lot of us are probably wondering how to copy over data from the old system -- both on-board data and save files on the SD card. The caveat this time around is that you'll need a #0 Philips ...

Review: Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate photo
Review: Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate
by Patrick Hancock

Ah, Monster Hunter. A game that ends up being more of a culture than anything else. These have always been games about community and self-improvement. Getting better isn't measured in some arbitrary number, but how well you can execute your talents. It also helps that as you get better your gear becomes increasingly more badass.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate doesn't tamper with the classic formula too much, but the additions here are certainly nothing to ignore. New weapons, new mechanics, and an incredible amount of monsters makes Ultimate more than just the "same old thing."

The Denpa Men RPG Free! hits 1.8 million downloads in Japan

I'm glad that The Denpa Men franchise is still around. While it wasn't the best set of games on the already crowded 3DS eShop, it was a cute enough series, and I would like to see the little guys live on in some form. It loo...
