Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars

03-22-2011

If you're picking up a Nintendo 3DS at launch, you're likely suffering anxiety over which game to buy along with it. Let's face it: the 3DS launch line up isn't littered with winners.With more than ten launch titles available...

Pilotwings Resort

03-23-2011

Minnesota-based developer Monster Games is no stranger to resurrecting long-dormant franchises for Nintendo. In 2006 it released the spiritual successor to the NES classic Excitebike, Excite Truck for the Wii. Then, just thre...

Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition

03-24-2011

Ladies and gentlemen, here's to Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition, the first million-selling title on the 3DS! This doesn't come as much of a surprise, though. It's easily the best of the available launch titles and should ...

Nintendogs + Cats

03-24-2011

According to my Doctor Who calendar, the time of year where children are encouraged to support obesity by leaving cookies out for a fat burglar who magically fits in chimneys is almost upon us. I'm preparing by trying to make...

Samurai Warriors: Chronicles

04-02-2011

Where there is a new system, there is a new Warriors game waiting in the wings. Tecmo Koei has gotten in early this time, ready for the 3DS' launch with Samurai Warriors Chronicles, yet another button-bashing foray into the world of medieval Japan.  Maybe Tecmo Koei rushed in a little too early this time.

Ridge Racer 3D

04-04-2011

Ridge Racer 3D is one of two racing games available for the 3DS at launch, and since the other one is part of GameLoft's Asphalt series, there's really only one choice.  Ridge Racer 3D's overall goal seems quite clear --...

Dead or Alive: Dimensions

05-25-2011

Grand news for everyone who recently picked up a 3DS: Tecmo Koei is going to cycle through the daily SpotPass outfits for Dead or Alive Dimensions again -- all 34 of them. Each morning at 10:00am, there will be a new costume ...

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3DS

06-17-2011

Okay, Taylor Davis is officially a badass. Late last year we saw her dressed as Sheik and playing a couple of the ocarina songs from The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time. She took the simple melodies and transformed them...

Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D

06-28-2011

Capcom has slashed prices on the trinity of Resident Evil games for Nintendo platforms, sacrificing the terror-inducing adventures for half off in celebration of Halloween. For the remainder of the month, horror junkies will ...

Dream Trigger 3D

07-05-2011

When I first started playing Dream Trigger 3D, I despised it with every fiber of my being. It was chaotic and confusing, with controls that didn't make sense and a tutorial that does nothing to explain how one is supposed to play.  After spending a fair few hours with the game, all of the above is still true, but now I like the game. It's always weird when that happens.

3D Classics Xevious

07-31-2011

To many, the name 3D Classics: Xevious is itself an oxymoron. Space Invaders, Galaga, Defender, and Gradius are considered by most as shoot 'em up classics. However, Xevious never quite reached that level of prestige, at leas...

3D Classics Urban Champion

08-21-2011

A 3D update of Urban Champion? How did this happen? Here's how I think it went down... Nintendo President Satoru Iwata (the responsible one) heads over to the house of Nintendo creative mastermind Shigeru Miyamoto (...

3DS Ambassador Certificate

08-31-2011

Nintendo is giving early adopters twenty free videogames from its dusty old vaults, and that's fine, but those hoping for something fresher and/or worth more than a collective five bucks were left disappointed ... until now!&...

Star Fox 64 3D

09-09-2011

Those who bought a Nintendo 3DS may wonder why their system -- which perfectly allows for online gaming -- hasn't got any online games. Crucially, they may wonder why a multiplayer-focused release like Star Fox 64 3...

Bit.Trip SAGA

09-13-2011

Bit.Trip Complete and Saga were released several months ago here in North America, but across the pond there are still plenty of fans eagerly awaiting their release. Fortunately, Europeans don't have much longer to wait,...

Frogger 3D

09-23-2011

Frogger is one of the most recognizable games on the planet. While not quite as famous as Pac-Man or Donkey Kong, it nevertheless has made a lasting enough impression in its arcade heyday to be "up there" with the VIPs of the...

Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure

10-17-2011

We are so used to waiting insufferably long periods of time for Japanese games to be localized and brought out West that we often imagine Japan as this floating island of privilege and good fortune. How easily do we forget th...

Tetris Axis

10-17-2011

Count on this: where there's a new Nintendo portable there's a new Tetris game. This time around, for the Nintendo 3DS, it's Tetris Axis. A strange name for a strange system. And it's a prety strange game, too. Yes, ther...

Mahjong Cub3d

10-20-2011

Wait! Where are you going? Portable mahjong games aren't going to hold up to all the high profile fall and holiday releases that are coming out, especially with this year's huge line-up. But what if I told you that this parti...

Pokemon Rumble Blast

10-24-2011

Pokémon Rumble was launched on WiiWare in 2009 and apparently did well enough to justify a retail appearance. Pokémon Rumble Blast is the mildly anticipated sequel and first official Pokémon game to come ...

Cave Story 3D

11-08-2011

Cave Story is a modern classic. Sadly, many people still haven't ever played it, even though it's been released on WiiWare, DSiWare, and the iTunes App store. That's probably partly due to its retro look. It's hard to generat...

Super Mario 3D Land

11-09-2011

Having finally gotten a Wii U, my goal this week has been to play Super Mario 3D World and at least try not to burn through it too quickly. It's tough, though, with the promise of something new pushing me to continually do "j...

VVVVVV

12-29-2011

Terry Cavanagh's gravity-flipping platformer VVVVVV is beloved for many reasons, and for a lot of fans, one of those reasons is Magnus "Souleye" Pålsson's kicking electronic soundtrack, PPPPPP. I know I have spent after...
