I hope this is paving the way for Tingle DLC
Feb 14
[Update: It's fake, as shown in the video above. While it's nice to have a detailed explanation on how this fake was made, what I really want is a detailed explanation on why it was made, preferably with sideline psycho... read

So where's that adapter Nintendo?
Feb 09

Everything's coming up tomatoes in this Smash Bros. glitch


Super Schadenfreude Bros.
Feb 05
Chris asked me to fill in for him this morning, if only for a single post, so I figured I'd do exactly that not with amiibo coverage, but with this Super Smash Bros. glitch in which tomatoes have run amok. Somehow, something... read

Sick and tired of being sick and tired

Outfit swap DLC for Smash Bros. would make a lot of money


Sometimes the least important things are what we want the most
Jan 25
[Image by Pitarou] The amiibo craze doesn't seem to have died down yet. My guess is that once Nintendo has released 50 different figures, amiibo fans will start to look at all the fun-but-relatively-worthless figures they've ... read

The official Wii U GameCube adapter is still crazy stupid to find, here's a third-party one


Buyer beware, of course

In recent news, Nintendo sold the Wii U GameCube adapter on its site, making good on the promise that it would come back into stock -- sorta. It sold out in roughly 30 minutes, so I hope you were staring at the internet at th... read

Ignore the annoying commentary
Jan 05
Pac-Land is considered a hallmark title for being one of the first games to use and help popularize parallax scrolling. Despite its contribution to modern gaming, Super Smash Bros.' homage to it isn't all that well-rece... read

Duck Hunt amiibo files allegedly found on-disc for Smash Wii U


It makes sense that they'd all be on there
Jan 02
It makes perfect sense that Nintendo would have every amiibo file already on the Super Smash Bros. Wii U disc, but this video apparently confirms that fact. Taken by YouTube user Mema Haxx, it shows the character (known... read

This Lucina figure is looking pretty damn great


I want it
Dec 08
Japan is getting an amazing Figma figure next year -- Lucina from Fire Emblem: Awakening. It's up for pre-order now from retailers like AmiAmi, and it'll drop in April 2015. I think I'm going to have the mask on permanently -- it looks too cool. Of course, this figure makes me lament the fact that Lucina doesn't have a mask-variant costume in Smash Bros. read
