A new 1080 Snowboarding would hit the spot

Fresh Club Nintendo rewards: Metroid II, Kirby's Pinball Land, Pilotwings


And a game about throwing pedestrians
Nov 17
Do you have any Club Nintendo currency left this late in the year? I do not. I'm not even sure where my Coins went. I only have two remaining low-value surveys to fill out (though Super Smash Bros. is on the way), and that's ... read

Toys R Us Black Friday: Still no great Wii U deals


The kids will be easier to trample
Nov 14
If you're looking to pick up a Wii U this black-weekend-and-also-the-preceding-Thursday, you should probably stay in and scour digital deals (or "digideals," as we call them). You should probably do that anyway, but you shoul... read

Walmart black Friday: Get your cheap Beats and Xbox


Capitalism starts Thanksgiving morning, 'cheap' Beats by Dre for everyone
Nov 12
All these "black friday" ads seem to lean on the Xbox One. Is that a partnership thing with Microsoft and retailers? Is that retailers not picking up on the notion that the PS4 is selling better? Is it the assumption that the... read

Relive that time Kirby was a golf ball with Club Nintendo


Fresh digital game rewards
Oct 13
Coming off of Kirby Super Star and Art Style: PiCTOBiTS, guess I should have lowered my expectations for this month's Club Nintendo digital game rewards. Too late. Actually, it's not all bad: Wrecking Crew (Wii U) - 200 Coin... read

Same great gameplay, not so great new gimmick
Toys For Bob has found some rather interesting ways to evolve the Skylanders franchise. While the conceit the first time around was simply interactive toys, the developer mixed things up with giants on the second go, and... read feature

I play videogames for many reasons. Sometimes, I play for the story -- the chance to visit new worlds and live out someone else's life. Other times, it's the sense of competition I find most alluring, or the chance to master ... read feature

Let me preface this post by saying that I don't watch The Voice, or any of those other horrific singing shows. But I do sing a lot in my spare time. Not great or anything, but I do it for fun. And there aren't enough karaoke ... read

The crushing despair of Mario Kart summed up in a single video


The unluckiest Mario Kart match I've ever seen
Jun 27
The only way this would be better is if the footage was from Mario Kart 8 so we could look out for the obligatory Luigi death stare. Still. Holy crap. We've all had our frustrating moments with the series, but I don't know that there's any topping this 30-second slice of hell. And that last-minute Bullet Bill out of nowhere. Way to make it feel personal. [Via reddit] read

Way cooler than Peach, right?
