Today is a good day, European Nintendo fans. Or maybe a not so great one for your wallet.
Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, and the first dozen Amiibo figures all arrive in Europe star...more
Nintendo sent a boastful little email our way this morning, touting Super Smash Bros. as the fastest-selling Wii U game ever. At least so far as the United States is concerned, anyway.
Americans purchased more than 490,000 un...more
Jonathan introduced this video of a kitten occasionally pawing at Super Smash Bros. by saying, "It's the least newsworthy news ever newsed, but it will make people happy to watch."
Indeed, I had just come off a last-round de...more
Elite fighting game competitors have to be able to perform even under the wackiest of circumstances. Fox lose his head? King Dedede's eyes look like he's taken enough psychedelic drugs for a lifetime? Better nail that dash-d...more
This is a pretty strange PSA but I know someone is going to go on a Twitter rant after they crack open their new copy of Super Smash Bros. Wii U, so here goes.
I don't know about you all, but one of the first things...more
Super Smash Bros. fans are all about Ridley, and I get it. The Metroid character would be cool to play as, but it's just not happening. Not this time. Speaking to IGN, director Masahiro Sakurai laid out why: "...if we made Ri...more
Mewtwo is coming to Super Smash Bros. next spring, but Masahiro Sakurai explained to IGN that, "releasing that character is an experiment meant to act as a foothold in content distribution; thus it's simply meant as part of t...more
Are you excited for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U? You should be. Chris "Barack Obama" Carter says it's 9.5 good. That's not 9.5 out of like 3 billion. That's 9.5 out of 10.
Some people that are certainly appropriately enthused for Smash Bros. are the ones in this video. I don't really have words for what's going on, so I'll let the clip speak for itself. more

Super Smash Bros. for the 3DS was everything I hoped it would be. It rekindled my love for the franchise after my group of friends and I lost interest due to Brawl, and I'm playing online more often than I would with most fig...more
Some concoctions will leave you feeling sick to your stomach. You need look no further than Yukiko Amagi's culinary misadventures for proof of that. Other pairings seem to work far better than they probably should, like Atlus...more
Stealth is a tricky game mechanic to pull off well. If it is too slow it can be dull, but if it is too fast it is more action than stealth. If it is too predictable it becomes mundane, but if it is too random it requires more...more
In high-level competition, every little advantage counts. It is why Olympic swimmers shave their bodies before a race, why pre-med students fight tooth-and-nail for every half point on every test, and why gaming keyboards exi...more
