The Extra-Terrestrial Atari 2600 game. No, seriously.

Okay, so the news from this Nintendo Direct was fairly standard outside of a few highlights like unified account balances for 3DS and Wii U (finally!) and Miiverse on 3DS, but how about that intro with Bill Trinen and Reggie Fils-Aime? I adore these things.

Even if you don't stick around to the end, find your way there to catch some wonderful footage of Super Mario 3D World. It's nice to see Rosalina confirmed as a playable character, too.

Worldwide online in Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Games

Here's a question: why does Peach have to wear tights to ice skate while Bowser gets to go bare-bottom? They have lots of dumb laws over in Sochi. Maybe a 'dinos must not wear pants' law is also in place. We learned from thi...

Wii Remote Plus Mario and Luigi coming Nov. 1

In this morning's Nintendo Direct, Iwata reminds us that the Wii Remote Plus Mario and Luigi controllers are set to hit shelves on November 1. They don't do anything different than other Wii Remote Plus controllers, but they have the cute L or R on them, which makes the plain white ones look lame. Nintendo has a MSRP of $39.99 set for these controllers. See
