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...

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...

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.

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...

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?...

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...

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...

Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric

11-20-2014

Sonic Boom recently got a huge patch on Wii U. Like 1GB huge, and developer Big Red Button wouldn't tell anyone what was in it. Fans have surmised some of the contents, but the hunt is still on for other changes. One of the ...

Super Smash Bros.

11-19-2014

Super Smash Bros. had some issues at launch with people getting banned for using certain characters, and with the debut of the Mewtwo DLC came another problem. The glitch lied in playing Mewtwo offline, which led the game to ...

Tengami

11-17-2014

Tengami has been out on iOS devices for quite some time but has now finally made its debut on Wii U. I think it's great that the Wii U has the perfect setup for iOS games to make a pretty seamless transition thanks to th...

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.

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...

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...

Squids Odyssey

07-21-2014

Splatoon might be getting a lot of hype for Wii U squid battling, but it is not the first game featuring a squid squad to grace the console. Earlier this year, Squids made its jump from iOS to the Wii U with Squids Odyssey, a...

One Piece Unlimited World Red

07-17-2014

One Piece games are kind of up in the air at this point in terms of quality. Just when I thought Pirate Warriors had solidified that seal of quality from the franchise, Romance Dawn snuck up and stole most of that g...

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...

Shovel Knight

06-26-2014

Clearing Super Mario World for the first time and discovering that the fiery, big-eyed dinosaurs who leap out of the lava are named Blargg was quite the revelation. Come again? Blargg? I can't remember what I called the enemy...

Pushmo World

06-19-2014

People say Nintendo never does anything original outside of Mario and Zelda -- but as we all know, that's absolutely not true. Not only has the company taken chances on wacky IPs all throughout its storied history, but the ad...

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...

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...

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.

NES Remix 2

04-21-2014

In case you haven't played both NES Remix and NES Remix 2, you can pick up both later this year in the form of a physical copy. It's always been rumored since Nintendo mentioned it in passing as a definite Japanese relea...

The LEGO Movie Videogame

First things first: if you haven't seen The LEGO Movie, you should probably go do that right now. It's awesome, and your face will love it. Back yet? OK, good. For those of you who have seen it, this is your predictable licen...

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...
