Oh that Beck he's so wacky
Mighty No. 9 is going for that "kooky weird Saturday morning cartoon" vibe with this new trailer, meant to showcase some of the game's new modes, and that ever-popular brand™ building Minecraft pre-order bonus ski...
Mario Kart 8 came in with a bang, and ended up lasting quite a while with its two amazing DLC packs. While I still play it on occasion, its fire has unfortunately died down a bit, partially due to the horrible battle mode tha...
I'm really feeling it
When Xenoblade Chronicles was announced for localization on the Wii, my heart skipped a beat. While there are plenty of JRPGs to go around, the more the merrier, and I wouldn't pass up the chance to experience another Monolith Soft game.
I didn't quite have the same reaction to Xenoblade Chronicles X at first, but it really grew on me over time.
Especially on Black Friday
Shopping research group InfoScout has published its post-Black Friday findings as they relate to video game consoles. As you can see in the chart below, 40% of participating millennials (defined as ages 18-35) buy PlayStation...
Of course it starts on a Saturday
Update: Cyber Monday is over and thus only two deals remain. Listed below.
Its not quite Monday yet but eBay deals are flooding with various Cyber Monday deals on Wii U, Xbox One, and PS4 console bundles. If you slept pass Bl...
An official online store, imagine that
In the UK, Nintendo has a dedicated online store where you can go online, and buy amiibo straight from the source. I know right? Here in the US we have to hunt for retailer exclusives and hope that our F5 tactics actuall...
Haha, this game
If you're hyped up for Xenoblade Chronicles X, you'll probably want to take the time to watch this nine minute video regarding the game's map system. It's pretty complicated, and X doesn't actually explain everythin...
It's a Black Friday miracle!
GameStop has made good on its advertised Black Friday amiibo restock. Not only are stores packed with the promised Ike amiibo, but you can also find the other restocked figures through its website.
As of writing, the reissued...
Nintendo has provided a new course for Super Mario Maker, based on the NES Remix series. After completion, it will net you the frog suit from Mario 3, which wasn't in the game previously -- it's important to note h...
I put it to the test
For weeks now, readers have been asking about the CronusMAX Plus. With its grand claims of using "almost any controller on any console," a lot of people wanted to know if it worked, especially given the pricey $50 price tag for what essentially amounted to a fancy dongle.
After some initial issues, it ended up taking me by surprise at how well it worked.
Another year, another lack of Dragon Quest X in the west.
Square Enix has added insult to injury recently too, as it just announced a new Japanese bundle that includes the Wii, Wii U, and 3DS versions of the game. So if...
Also, Konami Krazy Racers
Well, this is an awkward digital Thanksgiving dinner.
Nintendo sent over the main courses for the available 3DS and Wii U eShop downloads today, and they're rather paltry. Wii U will see Konami Krazy Racers and Cutie Pet...
One of my most anticipated new features of Hyrule Warriors Legends, an expansion of sorts for the original Warriors, is Skull Kid. The new attacks shown in the video look amazing, and include moon abilities, as well as a fig...
Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures was a pleasant surprise for me, but unfortunately, Europe still hasn't gotten the Wii U edition of the game. It looks like it will finally hit on December 10, according to a listing at Ni...
Recently, Walmart tried to tempt folks into walking into a store and picking up one of "at least" 21 Modern Mario amiibo, but don't do that -- instead, just pick one up casually online.
Why are these such a big deal? Well, th...
Walmart strikes first blood
Update: Deal is now live but Walmart servers are being hammered. FYI, Target's similar deal is available in store only.
For those unaware, Walmart will be selling the popular Black Friday Wii U Deluxe bundles with Super Smash...

Go go Yo-Kai Watch
Level-5 is no stranger to Nintendo platforms. While they got their start making fantastic games like Dark Cloud and Jeanne d'Arc, they shifted over to the DS with Professor Layton, and saw great success there for many ye...
And the GamePad
Well this is interesting.
Fans have been speculating as to the control schemes that will be supported in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD, and according to the official Nintendo Sweden landing site, we're in for some...
Now I just need storage
Y'all ready for some cyber deals? Nintendo kicked off its big eShop sale on Wii U and 3DS titles today with discounts up to 50 percent off.
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD ($34.99)
Pikmin 3 ($38.99)
Already available in the US
As previously discussed, Xenoblade Chronicles X has data packs that are available prior to launch in the US. You can download them from the eShop, and at the cost of 10GB of HDD space, textures will be enhanced, and load...
A (Tri)force to be reckoned with
Ganondorf wasn't given a trident in Hyrule Warriors for Wii U. That seems like a missed opportunity of sorts. It was his weapon of choice in some of the best Zelda games ever made.
That misstep is being rectified w...
Look at last
The third episode for Minecraft: Story Mode is out today, and it's actually not half bad. I think I took more screenshots this time around than in the first two episodes as a result.
Going through these after the fact, it's o...
Minecraft: Story Mode didn't impress me with its first two episodes. Aimed at young players and Minecraft super fans, its writing didn't have a whole lot going for it past its Saturday morning cartoon plot and series in-jokes...
Including 'Jerry Was a Race Car Driver'
At this point, Guitar Hero Live's GHTV function will have 300 songs to choose from this weekend, with 34 new tracks dropping tomorrow. The full list is below, but the obvious highlights include Judas Priest, Tenacious D, Huey...
Unfortunately they're region locked
Way back in 2012 when the Wii U was initially announced, Nintendo stated that down the line players would be able to buy a second GamePad separately for dual-GamePad games on the system. This dual support never actually came ...
Did You Know Gaming
Did You Know Gaming has another episode ready for your eyeholes, and this time it's Splatoon related. While some of this was already known (it was supposed to be a Mario game, and then featured bunnies at one point...
With multiple waves of restocks, many shortages in the great amiibo war of 2015 have been resolved. But I decided to do some research today to try to track down the toughest amiibo to find, and I've come up with a brief list ...
No need to wait in line
The amiibo season this year is nearly over. Pending the release of the Shovel Knight figure in "Holiday 2015" (which could very easily be pushed), Lottie is the last known toy to be released in 2015, as a Target exclusive. As...
The Trinity shortage was a year ago
It's crazy to think that exactly one year ago today, I was hopping from store to store to pick up the first ever wave of amiibo. While characters like Mario were extremely easy to find, I distinctly noticed that even though I...
