ZombiU

07-08-2013

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has revealed ZombiU made no money, the Wii U launch title failing to become "even close" to profitable. Despite rumors and teasing, it now appears no sequel is on the cards for the foresee...

Zen Pinball 2

08-26-2014

With Marvel, Star Wars, and The Walking Dead under their belts, there's no license too big for Zen Studios to take on at this point. This time around, Zen has teamed up with Comedy Central and put together two new tables themed after none other than South Park. I wasn't sure what to expect, but should have known the tables would be phenomenal.


 

Young Justice: Legacy

05-29-2013

Young Justice was a show about the DC universe sidekicks going on world-shaping undercover missions while the main superheroes battled the much more public threats. Sounds badass, doesn't it? Too badass for Cartoon Network, ...

Rejoice European Wii U owners, for once we're getting a game before North America and seeing all sorts of details early. This rarely happens, so let's enjoy it. During last night's European Nintendo Direct, Nintendo announced...


 

YIIK: A Post-Modern RPG

02-21-2015

We've been following the production of Ackk Studios' new EarthBound-inspired game for some time now. Today, it got a new trailer and a new name: Y2K: A Post-Modern RPG. We get to see quite a bit of gameplay in this...


 

Yarn Yoshi

01-23-2013

A new game from the developers of the sublime Kirby's Epic Yarn is coming to Wii U, but this time it's not Kirby that's made of string -- it's Yoshi.  The unnamed game -- which I'm calling Yoshi's Epic Yarn of course -- ...


 

Yakuza 1 & 2 HD

08-15-2013

The Wii U port sales woes continue with Yakuza 1 & 2 HD, as the game reportedly shipped less than 2000 copies in its first week in Japan. Yakuza producer Toshihiro Nagoshi stated in the past that the release is an "experi...


 

Y2K

02-26-2015

Y2K began with protagonist Alex Eggleston returning to his his hometown from college. I watched him gaze out of bus windows until the scene shifted to him sharing a seat with a man in a panda costume. This was jarring enough to give Alex reason to look completely shaken and offended, and as the jaunty soundtrack suggested, should have felt super quirky and weird. It didn't.


 

Xenoblade Chronicles X

04-10-2015

There was a Japanese Nintendo Direct this morning focused on Xenoblade Chronicles X. Thanks to some helpful translation, we know a few more details about the Dolls and mechs and cooperative play. One cool-sounding note is th...

On today's Nintendo Direct, brand new battle engine footage from upcoming Monolith Soft Wii U game X was shown. Aside from the uninterrupted gameplay, Nintendo didn't give much more for us to go on other than that the battle...


 

Wonder Flick

09-25-2013

Our previous look at Level-5's adorable new RPG scored by Final Fantasy's Nobuo Uematsu was tempered because it is a free-to-play mobile title. It's meant to release in Japan this November on Android and iOS. However, some w...

Woah Dave!

Wii Party U

11-09-2013

Wii Party U probably isn't going to set the world on fire, but it just might help save the Wii U. The minigame-fest hit shelves in Japan last week along with a special console bundle that also includes New Super Mar...

Wii Fit U

11-23-2013

[Every week, from early November through the end of 2013, I'll report on my use of Wii Fit U and how it benefits my health.] Read Week 1's weigh-in here. If this Wii Fit U weekly weigh-in accomplishes only one thing, I want it to be a clear measure of just how much weight I'll gain Thanksgiving week. It's going to be gross, folks.

Wave 4 amiibo shopping

04-03-2015

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.

Watch Dogs

Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper

11-21-2012

Warriors Orochi 3 was one of the best entries in Koei's long-running Warriors series, perhaps since Dynasty Warriors 3. Not only was it packed with content, the inclusion of Ryu Hayabusa, Joan of Arc, and other characters fro...

Unepic

12-11-2012

PC game Unepic is making its way to Wii U. If you haven't heard of it yet, this 2D platformer has some RPG elements, lots of rooms to explore, big bosses, pets, potions, achievements and hidden treasures. Metroidvania is always good, right? We're still in the dark on a release date, but we're sure it's coming soon. This trailer and new screenshots should hold you over until then.


 

U Craft

09-30-2014

There might not be Minecraft for Wii U, but there is U Craft. Close enough? This is in the works at Nexis Games, the studio behind some games I'm also not familiar with -- do BrickBlast U! or The Dance of the Damned ring any ...

Trine 2: Director's Cut

12-08-2012

When Trine 2 was initially released, I was excited to check it out on Xbox Live Arcade as I had heard many good things about the first one and its open-ended, puzzle-platformer gameplay. Unfortunately, as much I was entranced...
