Aban Hawkins and the 1001 Spikes

06-08-2014

I'm angry that I had to write this review of 1001 Spikes, as I would have rather spent this time playing more of it. That anger makes me all the more similar to the game's titular hero Aban Hawkins. Neglected and disrespected...

Affordable Space Adventures

04-04-2015

Ever wanted to see your favorite Beard Buddy get sloppy drunk while driving a gay car and giving it a handjob? Be at our Twitch channel tonight at 12AM ET / 9PM PT where I'll be doing just that with the recently released Stic...

Armillo

07-02-2014

After following a number of indie developers who decide to go with the Wii U or 3DS eShop, I'm noticing a lot of the same sentiments in regards to loyalty to Nintendo. Not only have some of these developers grown up with Nint...

Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition

11-17-2012

For most of this generation, Nintendo existed as its own entity in the market. The Wii couldn't match the technical prowess of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, while third-party publishers famously struggled when attempting to...

Bayonetta 2

10-24-2014

Koubutsuya is helping Bayonetta lovers make a fashion statement with these hot new earrings which are an exact replica of Cereza's. The company is known for its quality reproductions of anime items aimed at adults who desire ...

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker

12-01-2014

A friend of mine got a good deal on a Wii U recently. That meant that I finally got a chance to play Captain Toad. It's really humbling to know that people at Nintendo have also played Monument Valley. I played through a bunc...

Chasing Aurora

11-21-2012

I knew nothing about Chasing Aurora when I bought it. It won my money by being in the right place at the right time, as I needed to purchase something from the Wii U eShop and test out Nintendo's digital distribution efforts....

Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut

10-21-2013

Deus Ex: Human Revolution was quite the accomplishment when it was released. It wasn't everything an old-school Deus Ex fan could ask for (those boss fights), but it was a very reasonable compromise, and a great game in its o...

Dolphin Up

02-04-2015

Let it be said that I am not one to pass up a good dolphin game. Or even a mediocre dolphin game. Seriously, just give me some dolphins and I'm happy! At first glance, Dolphin Up may seem like a mobile title, and that's proba...

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

02-17-2014

The Official Nintendo Magazine had some time to sit down with Retro CEO Michael Kelbaugh and Nintendo producer Kensuke Tanabe, who were both responsible for the creation of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. A number of in...

Donkey Kong Frappuccino

08-31-2014

PAX is full of weird pandering shit designed to appeal to the almost 100,000 gaming fans that come out for the convention. Any company would be remiss to pass up the opportunity to make some easy extra cash by selling product...

Dr. Luigi

12-31-2013

In case you've been living under a rock for the past year, Nintendo has been running a fun promotion throughout 2013: the Year of Luigi. The goal is simple -- to celebrate the part of the Mario duo that is often describe...

Game & Wario

06-22-2013

Game & Wario is kind of like Nintendo Land in reverse. Where Nintendo Land takes the gameplay concepts of various Nintendo franchises and condenses them all into a Mii-sized caricature, Game & Wario takes the micro-ga...

Hyrule Warriors

09-17-2014

9,999,999 Rupees in Hyrule Warriors. Yeah, I could go for that. The game's community has been working tirelessly to figure out a newly discovered glitch that involves slaying a giant boss (King Dodongo, Gohma, etc.) with a w...

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse

02-18-2015

The first episode of Game News Haikus went over pretty well with people who watched it. If you're one of those people, thanks for taking the time. If you're not, maybe watch that one and the new one and every future episode?...

Knytt Underground

01-02-2014

A lot of you kids may not remember this, but there was a time when new 2D platformers were hard to find. Game Maker didn't exist yet. Home console publishers didn't want to back the genre because it lacked the "wow factor" an...

LEGO City Undercover

03-11-2013

Nintendo already blundered the original Wii U in terms of hard drive space, as the system couldn't even fit one of its major titles at launch without an external hard drive. My issue is that although most of us know how to bu...

LEGO The Hobbit

04-27-2014

Another month, another LEGO game. These things are starting to be more frequently released than yearly Call of Duty games. And with that frequency comes some caveats, such as this month's title only including the two Hobbit films that have been released thus far. Does that put a damper on the entertainment value found within? Only time -- or reading on -- will tell.

Little Inferno

02-01-2013

After recently releasing on iPhone, Tomorrow Corporation's game about burning (and so much more), Little Inferno, is now available for Mac. Better yet, those who own the Windows version won't have to pay another cent for the ...

Madden 13

08-25-2012

It looks like my bird magic worked, as the Baltimore Ravens overtook the San Francisco 49ers last night in a huge Super Bowl victory, bringing the franchise up to two championship wins. Of course, Madden 13 already knew this...

Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games is hitting the slopes later this week, arriving for Wii U in North America on November 15. Outside of the novelty of seeing Nintendo and Sega's mascots compete alongsid...

Mario Kart 8

05-30-2014

When Nintendo announced its DLC plans for Mario Kart 8, there was a combination of collective groans and cheers across the internet. The latter group was on the right side of history, it seems. When the first DLC Pack dr...

Mario Kart 8 DLC Pack 1

11-14-2014

Mario Kart 8's first DLC pack has Link riding a horse-shaped bike called the Master Cycle. And, good lord, Mute City from the beloved but still dormant F-Zero series. Also, a track based on Excitebike with a killer remix. Are you even going to read this review? Don't answer that. Let me have this moment.

Mario Kart 8 DLC Pack 2

04-23-2015

Mario Kart 8 feels fresh again and not just because of the fabulous new tracks added in this week's Animal Crossing-themed DLC Pack 2. Nintendo also unleashed the humbling 200cc class in a free update for the game. We saw the...

Mario Party 10

03-16-2015

It doesn’t seem too long ago that Nintendo were struggling. With the slow sales of the Wii U that hit profits back in 2013 and the dwinding 3DS user base in 2014, It looked like the little (pfffft) company that could un...
