NewEgg discounts PS Vita and Wii U bundles up to $40 off

Sure, NewEgg is mostly known as a computer parts retailer, but this weekend it is selling some cheap consoles on its eBay Store page. There is the Wii U Deluxe Bundle with Super Mario 3D World and Nintendo Land discounted by $40, along with the Borderlands 2 PlayStation Vita Bundle slashed by $30. Two decent discounts for two systems that don't get quite enough love.

Stretching Mario's face will never get old

Now that it's downloadable for Wii U, Super Mario 64 has entered my life again. It wasn't my favorite Nintendo 64 title -- heck, it wasn't even my favorite 3D platformer on the console -- but it was a formative game and, com...

Nintendo's 3DS and Wii U spring sale has started

Pikmin 3 is a game worth buying at full price, so now that it's $42 in Nintendo's Super Spring Sale, you've got some considering to do. I'd also recommend Captain Toad -- it's great to play in the background of your life, a f...

Mario Kart 8's 200cc class put to the test on Piranha Plant Pipeway

We're about two weeks out from Nintendo adding the speedy new 200cc class to Mario Kart 8. After watching a few of these side-by-side comparison videos between 200cc and 150cc, it already feels like I'm growing accustomed to...

Review: Pokémon Rumble World photo
Review: Pokémon Rumble World
by Chris Carter

Nintendo has been dipping its toes in the water of DLC and free-to-play with mixed results. Although it has done a great job creating worthwhile add-ons that don't feel like rushed day-one cash grabs, the whole amiibo situation has caused a lot of problems, mostly due to rare figures that sell out in seconds, locking out content behind impossible-to-obtain toys.

Free-to-play worked out great for Nintendo with Rusty's Real Deal Baseball and Steel Diver: Sub Wars, but Pokémon Shuffle was far too stingy with the ability to let people play the game. While Pokémon Rumble World essentially distills into a mindless hack and slash, it also hosts a fair free-to-play scheme.

Ironfall Invasion was a good idea on paper, but it didn't follow through with many of its concepts, especially when it comes to the campaign. Thankfully Nintendo has announced that the developers are constantly working on the...
