Cold Stone Creamery (Wii) voice acting will haunt me forever

You hear the first "good jooobbb" at :30 and what was once a weird, branded* cash-in with a Candy Crush color scheme and, well, a Candy Crush everything -- when did this come out? 2009! -- becomes a little less comfortable. *Because of reg...

Recent Nintendo classics are finally heavily discounted on Amazon

Nintendo games can be something of a double-edged sword. Having been developed by Nintendo, they're usually very good. But, Nintendo also has a habit of rarely discounting its titles. That means you're going to have to pay for quality, even...

Nintendo has altered its fiscal year (April 2015-March 2016) forecasts to account for a few snags, and one small bump. In the 3DS arena, it's expecting to not only sell less hardware (one million units less), but less software (a nine milli...

 
A Boy and His Blob review
A Boy and His Blob, a 2009 "re-imagining" of the NES game of the same namesake (and recently re-released on current platforms), is an interesting case study. When does retro game design and a devotion to source material becom...   read

If this is really it for the new Super Smash Bros., what did you think of it?
