Nintendo to release demos for select E3 games at Best Buy


This could either fizzle or be huge

May 16

I don't know what it is about Square Enix games, but they always feel like they cost too damn much. This is especially true of the handheld titles -- I refused to pick up Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy for $39.99, waiting instead...

Nintendo UN-doomed?

The Wii U is in a pretty sad state when no one can guarantee current third-party games for the platform. What will become of Nintendo's fun box when "truly next-gen" titles -- Ubisoft's Watch Dogs, for instance -- star making...

That $200 3DS XL bundle currently making the rounds about town? Eh. 'Tis not so great. You are limited to the blue model, and the bundled copy of Mario Kart 7 is digital only. At the very least, you can score a cool $20 gift ...

There wasn't much fanfare when it was discovered that a new $199.99 3DS XL bundle featuring a pre-loaded copy of Mario Kart 7 was coming. There was even less fanfare when the damn thing ninja-ed onto store shelves yesterday. ...
