Elliot Quest's Wii U port is quite buggy

Elliot Quest is a retro-inspired Metroidvania title that feels right at home on the Wii U, as it takes a lot of inspiration from such NES classics as Zelda II: The Adventure of Link and Kid Icarus. I'd even venture to ...

Review: Affordable Space Adventures photo
Review: Affordable Space Adventures
by Patrick Hancock

It isn't too often that a game makes great use of what makes a console unique. More often publishers and developers are looking to get it out on as many platforms as possible, which makes console-specific ideas feel tacked on or ill thought out.

Affordable Space Adventures is a Wii U game that knows it is a Wii U game. GamePad and Miiverse integration are perfect, and I'm not sure that sentence has been made before.

Dibs on demons! Swords & Soldiers II hits Wii U on May 21

I've got a soft spot for sidescrolling strategy games like Swords & Soldiers. Maybe you do too. While they typically aren't as deep as their 3D contemporaries, they scratch a certain itch and can be hard to put down once ...

Review: Wave 4 amiibo Shopping photo
Review: Wave 4 amiibo Shopping
by Chris Carter

Yesterday, Nintendo unleashed hell on earth pre-orders for Wave 4 amiibo figures. The current lineup includes Robin, Lucina, Ness, Pac-Man, Charizard, Wario, Jigglypuff, Greninja, and three Splatoon flavored toys.

As someone who follows this craze partially for reporting purposes and in part due to personal interest, it was the absolute worst day yet for amiibo fans.

Why Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem is light on the SMT, Fire Emblem

Yesterday's peek at Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem raised as many questions as it did fanboy squeals. A new blog today (with somewhat differing translations between Siliconera and Mystic of Traduko Soft) answers and ra...

Here's the full rundown on all the Wave 4 amiibo madness today, including GameStop's plan photo
Here's the full rundown on all the Wave 4 amiibo madness today, including GameStop's plan
by Chris Carter

[Update: I went in-store to scope the situation out and see what I could get at GameStop. I waited two hours as the fourth person in line. The first two got the $77.94 Smash amiibo bundle. The third only got the Splatoon 3-pack, as did I. That took two hours to happen. Robin and Lucina sold out very quickly, which apparently delayed or canceled all of the bundle pack orders that were in the process of going through. Most of the line simply left the store in disgust.

Slow servers have been reported across the country for in-store orders, and I've seen pictures of knocked over displays and confirmation of at least one store ejecting an irate customer. From what I've heard from sources, this is such a mess that GameStop.com pre-orders won't even go up today. We'll provide updates as they occur, but if you really want these things, you may want to keep your eyes open on the site anyway. Based on this Facebook message it isn't looking good.]

Today is going to be the craziest day yet for amiibo. Wave 4 is set to go live, and in addition to an up-in-the-air Jigglypuff Target exclusive, it looks like Greninja pre-orders will appear sometime tomorrow at Toys"R"Us.

Beyond that, pre-orders for Ness (GameStop exclusive), Robin, Charizard, Pac-Man, Lucina, Wario, Inkling Boy, Inkling Girl, and the Splatoon 3-pack will drop today. I spent all morning making calls and contacting sources, and here's what I found.

Rodea: The Sky Soldier lands on 3DS, Wii U, and even Wii in late September

In my mind, Rodea: The Sky Soldier has two things going for it. First, "Rodea" sounds like something that would get into a brawl with Godzilla, and I'm all about that. Second, this Wii U and 3DS title is centered on a sky kin...
