Pokémon Shuffle's microtransactions are even worse than I thought

I just obtained my review copy for the upcoming 3DS match-three puzzler Pokémon Shuffle, and man, is it rough to get on-board with this microtransaction scheme. If you want the full rundown of what to expect you c...

This gold Mario amiibo looks to be a Wallyworld exclusive

What do you do if you're a die-hard amiibo fiend and you hate Walmart? Well, what if you hate Walmart so much you boycott it? Time to throw away those morals and standards because it looks like your favorite box store might be getting an exclusive amiibo -- a golden Mario. Thanks to this picture snapped by a fan, the signage says it all: Only at Walmart. Your move, hippies.

There's no regular-size New 3DS in North America because it'd be too confusing

Nintendo has made some unconventional decisions lately when naming new iterations of its hardware. The successor to the Wii was called the Wii U. The upgraded 3DS was named the New 3DS. It's easy to see how that branding coul...

What would it be like if Nintendo ran a theme park?

Nintendo is a company whose name is synonymous with videogames (just point at any console and ask my granny what it's called). It's produced some of the most beloved and iconic characters of the last century, and is still goi...

Still haven't picked up Majora's Mask 3D yet? Here's another comparison video

Based on all of the happy pictures I saw of people getting their shiny new Majora 3DS and Majora's Mask collectors editions, I'm thinking a lot of people have been playing The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D this past week...

Nintendo predicted the amiibo shortage 11 years ago

A lot of folks were surprised at last fall's amiibo launch, and how scarce some of the figures were. They shouldn't have been; Nintendo gave them a heads-up almost 11 years ago. The intro for the Game Boy Advance's Mario vs. Donkey Kong shows even the famed ape unable to get his hands on these elusive collectibles. Damn you, Mario Toy Company! This has been your intention all along!

Code Name S.T.E.A.M's Abe Lincoln gets all pushy on his birthday

The anniversary of Honest Abe's birth was four days ago, but, like Fiddy, we don't give a f*ck it's not his birthday. We're partyin' now, and we're similarly celebrating every Commander in Chief's tenure. Maybe that's why Li...

Watch Zelda producer go fishing in Majora's Mask 3D

Majora's Mask 3D is out today. Did you buy it? You should probably buy it. You know, if you want. It's the same (well, maybe a tad different) great game from back in the day, but with a few notable additions, like fishing ho...
