mii-crotransactions
Miitomo, Nintendo's first mobile phone game is officially available in Japan, and I've gotten my grubby hands on it by being a big fat liar, all because I love you, dear readers. After messing around with it for an entire day and avoiding all other aspects of my life, I think I have a decent grasp of it, and it is by no means perfect. But it is damned sure addicting.   read

Nintendo finally understands online networks

This morning, I've been playing the Japanese release of Miitomo, Nintendo's first smartphone app. While the app itself is interesting, I was mainly blown away by the fact that Nintendo's new online service is not only functional, but more u...

Shooting Stars! review
The highlight of this game for me was when a disco ball played a cheap sound-alike of Sandstorm. That should be all you need to know. But, if those words don't paint a bleak enough picture for you, read on to find out all about the sad interbreeding of laser-cats, bacon, and mediocre shooter mechanics that make up Shooting Stars!   read
