Relive that time Kirby was a golf ball with Club Nintendo photo
Relive that time Kirby was a golf ball with Club Nintendo
by Jordan Devore

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 Coins
  • Kirby's Dream Course (Wii U) - 200 Coins
  • Zoda's Revenge: StarTropics II (Wii) - 200 Coins
  • Maboshi's Arcade (Wii) - 250 Coins
  • Kersploosh! (3DS) - 150 Coins
  • Brain Age Express: Math (3DS) - 200 Coins
  • 3D Classics: Kid Icarus (3DS) - 200 Coins
  • Donkey Kong (3DS) - 150 Coins

Tempted to go for the oddity that is Kirby's Dream Course. It's an isometric golf game in which Kirby is the ball, so, yeah. Kersploosh!, a game about falling, is worth a look too.

Factor 5's canceled Rogue Squadron compilation sounds incredible

As if we don't have enough canceled Star Wars games to mourn already, here's a couple more. During a recent Nintendo Voice Chat appearance, Factor 5 president Julian Eggebrecht opened up about a Rogue Squadron compilation and...

Review: Skylanders: Trap Team photo
Review: Skylanders: Trap Team
by Chris Carter

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 with a mix-and-match concept (my personal favorite to date) after that.

Trap Team is the fourth iteration of the series, and the gimmick this time around involves tiny plastic pieces that essentially function as little Ghostbusters tools to ensnare enemies. While the core game is still as strong as ever, the trap mechanic isn't all that exciting.

I've discovered a new go-to game for relaxing photo
I've discovered a new go-to game for relaxing
by Jordan Devore

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 a game's rules and finally overcome its fiercest challenges.

But for every passing motivation to play games I have, I'll always been in need of one that can help me relax. Something to take my mind off life's problems, no matter how big or small they might be. Something I can get into for 15 minutes, or hours on end. Something that'll last.

Right now, Endless Ocean: Blue World is that game for me, and what a gem it is.

Sing your heart out with The Voice

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 ...

There are some good Club Nintendo game rewards this month photo
There are some good Club Nintendo game rewards this month
by Jordan Devore

Now, when I say this is a decent month for Club Nintendo game offers, I'm asking you to focus on Kirby Super Star, Super Punch-Out!!, and Art Style: PiCTOBiTS. Two Super Nintendo classics and an awesome, underplayed puzzler. Go ahead and ignore the rest, if you would.

  • Mario Bros. (Wii U) - 200 Coins
  • Kirby Super Star ( Wii U) - 200 Coins
  • Super Punch-Out!! (Wii) - 250 Coins
  • NES Play Action Football (Wii) - 200 Coins
  • Super Mario Bros. (3DS) - 200 Coins
  • The Legend of Zelda (3DS) - 200 Coins
  • Touch Solitaire (3DS) - 150 Coins
  • Art Style: PiCTOBiTS (3DS) - 200 Coins

No, really. Start up your 3DS and get to downloading.

People really like looking at porn on their PS3s

I'm not sure why you'd prefer using a console to look at porn over a PC or your phone if either are handy, considering the frustrating browser mechanics on many of them and the way ads like to display, but people like to do i...

These officially licensed GameCube style controllers are sweet

This is Skylanders Trap Team's Dark Edition

$99 to get started with Skylanders Trap Team in style -- thank heavens I'm not a kid (or don't have children, for that matter) because I'd be all over this. Activision has opened pre-orders for the Trap Team Dark Edition, whi...

Developers sound off with their favorite games of the generation

Now this is neat. Game Informer has rounded up 35 developers' picks for best games of the Wii, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 generation. There's a fair bit of commonality between the lists, with quite a few selections for BioSh...

This month's Club Nintendo rewards include Paper Mario, Kid Icarus photo
This month's Club Nintendo rewards include Paper Mario, Kid Icarus
by Jordan Devore

The Club Nintendo game rewards for this month are in. Hope you aren't averse to repeats:

  • Donkey Kong Jr. (Wii U) - 200 Coins
  • 3D Classics: Kid Icarus (3DS) - 200 Coins
  • Paper Mario (Wii/Wii U) - 250 Coins
  • Metal Torrent (3DS) - 200 Coins

I'd be all over Paper Mario if it were possible to play on Wii U without using Wii Mode. Like, how sweet would full-on GamePad support be? The sweetest.

Nintendo hasn't yet announced this year's rewards for Elite members who have obtained Gold or Platinum status at Club Nintendo, but that info should be coming before too long.

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

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]

These Rosalina plushies are so cute they should be illegal

If I'm being honest, the main reason I picked up Super Mario Galaxy when it came out was to see Rosalina. Her character design has always resonated with me. I mean, the game is fantastic, but I think I now prefer Rosalina to ...

The main character of The Legend of Zelda Wii U may not be Link

Here's everything that happened during Nintendo's 2014 E3 Conference
by Chris Carter

Nintendo had a very well-rounded presentation today, with very few major reveals and mostly just new teases. The new Zelda Wii U game was briefly talked about and teased, as was Mario Maker, and a few others.

The biggest developments were probably the new Smash Bros. additions as well as expanded NFC toy support. Here's everything that happened at Nintendo's E3 conference.
