Review: Mario Golf: World Tour photo
Review: Mario Golf: World Tour
by Dale North

It's been about 10 years since we've seen the Mushroom Kingdom gang out on the green, so it was high time for a new Mario Golf title. Camelot Software steps to the tee again, this time on the 3DS, bringing dual screens and and a new spin to their much-loved links with Mario Golf: World Tour.

But the biggest addition this time around is online play. Were they able to drive this one home?

Review: Disney Magical World photo
Review: Disney Magical World
by Chris Carter

When I heard that developer h.a.n.d. (which is mostly known for ports or collaborative projects) was creating a game similar to Animal Crossing with the Disney license, I was skeptical. Although there was a time when Harvest Moon and Rune Factory were still household names (both have seen 3DS releases), and many other simulator games were at the top of the pack, Animal Crossing is kind of the de facto king right now.

But when I heard that Nintendo would be publishing Disney Magical World in the US, I perked up a bit. There must be something there, right?

Were you player one or player two?

I'll fully admit that when I was younger, I had disdain for Luigi. Hey! I grew out of it eventually. But for whatever reason, I associated Luigi with the second controller slot, also known as the dreaded "player two." Since p...

Click your heels together and wish for SNES or GBA Remixes

When Nintendo feels like we get too close, it puts us right down. It's not the lover man that we want it to be, at least when it comes to fulfilling what can sometimes seem like lofty requests. For instance, remixes featuring...

Don't expect the NES Remix games to come to 3DS

I'd be playing NES Remix 2 right now were it not for my tragic lack of a Wii U. (Almost made an impulse purchase the other day.) With the sequel out this week, one question that might've crossed your mind is, "Why not also pu...

Happy 25th Anniversary, Game Boy! photo
Happy 25th Anniversary, Game Boy!
by Brittany Vincent

With fond memories of SolarStriker and Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins, today I wish the original Game Boy a very happy 25th anniversary. The little handheld that could came into this world kicking and screaming, setting a precedent for on-the-go gaming and becoming the best Pokémon Red and Blue system it ever could be. I kid. I burned that thing up, Pokémon or not.

On April 21, 1989, the original Game Boy leapt onto store shelves bundled with a copy of Tetris, and to date it's gone on to sell 118 million units. Most of them were me purchasing additional copies of Pokémon Red and Blue to force people to trade with me since trading alone with a link cable ceased being so much fun. Or Monster Rancher Battle Card GB.

I didn't get my Game Boy from a retail store and instead my parents nabbed mine from a pawn shop in a sweet carrying case. We were inseparable, especially with my first game having been Kirby's Dream Land. I wouldn't even put that sucker down to let my parents take a decent photo.

Best Nintendo commercial this year

HAHAH! Wow, Nintendo. Intense much? Gotta love those lyrics, too.  By the way, I'm playing Kirby: Triple Deluxe and it's fantastic. You'll see when it comes out next month for 3DS.

Review: NES Remix 2 photo
Review: NES Remix 2
by Chris Carter

NES Remix was able to scratch an itch for many retro enthusiasts out there, but it lacked a certain spark that made it a must-buy for the average gamer. It would be hard to really consider half of the selections "classic," and it lacked any real extras beyond a hit-or-miss array of remixed stages.

But the second time is a charm in this case, because with heavy-hitting newcomers like Kirby's Adventure, Punch Out!!, and Metroid on top of returning franchises like Mario and Zelda, NES Remix 2 really knocks it out of the park in terms of its selection.

Here are a ton of NES Remix 2 gameplay videos

NES Remix 2 is dropping next week, and this time it'll have a few more classics in tow. Like the last time around I've been playing it like crazy, capturing various clips from some of the minigames on offer.  Feel free to check out some gameplay of the remix elements (Kirby vs. Super Mario Bros.) and individual games like Metroid!
