#Wii U

Star Fox Zero review
Depending on how it's wielded, nostalgia can either be a powerful tool or a crippling crutch. No publisher knows this better than Nintendo. Star Fox Zero is obvious in its pitch -- "Did you like Star Fox 64? Okay, then y...   read

Pokken Tournament Review
When I first heard of the existence of Pokkén Tournament, I wasn't completely sold. That is, until I actually played it in Japan. At that point, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it again. Having spent nearly two week...   read

Twilight Princess review
My relationship with Twilight Princess is one of the most complicated I've come across in my entire gaming career. I completed it within a week of its launch on the Wii, and was left underwhelmed. It wasn't necessarily t...   read

Hyperkin ProCube
When I first saw Hyperkin's ProCube controller, I wanted to give it a go. Most of us have been disappointed with the fact that the Super Smash Bros. GameCube adapter only works with that one game, even if I did get a whole lot of use out of it. So I managed to get my hands on one, and I have to say, it's a near perfect recreation.   read

LEGO Marvel's Avengers
The MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) is intimidating, to say the least. In addition to all of the feature films there's also official tie-in comics, one-shot short films, multiple sequels that set up sequels, and now, eight separate television shows with multiple seasons across two networks. If you haven't been at least following the movies, LEGO Marvel's Avengers probably isn't for you.   read

GOTY 2015
Simply put, Splatoon delivered. Nintendo's inventive take on the shooter genre was the best in its field this year and so much more. It's a multiplayer experience that is both competitive and joyful, one where seasoned player...   read

Cloud impressions
Guys, Cloud is in Super Smash Bros. Holy shit.   read

By the seven stars!
The final Nintendo Direct for Super Smash Bros. for 3DS/Wii U happens today at 5pm ET. But, an update released last night for both titles has been data-mined revealing some new information, while keeping most surprises under wraps for Nintendo to reveal.   read

Devil's Third
Devil's Third has been in the pipeline for so long, that any given year I completely forgot about it. Announced in 2010, after the infamous Tomonobu Itagaki left Tecmo in 2008, the game has been in development limbo, pas...   read

SteamWorld Heist review
SteamWorld Dig is a criminally underrated game. Although some were quick to judge its short length, it's the perfect thing to pick up and play at the drop of a hat, and the pacing is basically perfect. Heist is a co...   read

Fast Racing Neo
In the three years since the launch of the Wii U, one of the most notably absent Nintendo properties on the console has been F-Zero. The series, which focused on futuristic fast-paced track racing, has been dormant for over a...   read

Xenoblade tips
Xenoblade Chronicles X is one of the most intricate JRPGs I've played in quite some time. I even ended up taking notes on a real notepad for it on a few occasions! Here are some tips to help kickstart your adventure.   read

Xenoblade review
When Xenoblade Chronicles was announced for localization on the Wii, my heart skipped a beat. While there are plenty of JRPGs to go around, the more the merrier, and I wouldn't pass up the chance to experience another Monolith Soft game. I didn't quite have the same reaction to Xenoblade Chronicles X at first, but it really grew on me over time.   read

Mario Tennis review
Once upon a time, Mario Tennis was a national pastime at pretty much every household I visited. Back in the year 2000 there weren't a whole lot of alternative sports games outside of a few gems (I miss EA Sports Big), an...   read

Rodea review
The history of Rodea the Sky Soldier is one muddled with platform changes and developmental issues galore. Originally slated as a Wii game in 2010, producer Yuji Naka ran into publishing troubles, and the project was ess...   read

Yoshi's Woolly World
Yoshi's Woolly World is the epitome of adorable. From Yoshi's cute, easily read facial expressions to the bright colourful world he inhabits, the intricate minor details to the tactile physicality of the world, this game took...   read

LEGO Dimensions
As I've talked about in the past, I'm usually the go-to person for the toys-to-life genre. I'm a kid at heart, and occasionally, I can enjoy a silly kids movie for the fun of it. No series has encapsulated that silliness more...   read

Skylanders review
Year after year, I can generally count on the Skylanders games. I had zero hope for Spyro's return back in 2011, but every single iteration has been a competent brawler. While Activision can be accused of running franchi...   read

Shovel Knight DLC review
I can't believe it's been over a year since Shovel Knight released -- time flies, right? Over the course of that year, I've beaten it on every conceivable platform outside of the PC edition, playing it over and over...   read

Super Mario Maker review
Ever since I was five years old, I've been drawing my own Mario levels on graph paper. It's a pretty common story, because when I look at a series to give me a platforming baseline, it's usually Mario. Nintendo didn't ju...   read

Disney Infinity review
It's only been two years since the release of the first Disney Infinity, which managed to become a massive hit before venturing into Marvel territory in the second game. Now, Disney has tapped the Star Wars market, and i...   read

Pokken Tournament
Pokken Tournament is the talk of the town -- the only issue is that basically everyone outside of Japan can't play it. Until 2016 that is, as Nintendo has just announced that Pokken is coming to the Wii U worldwide next...   read

Super Mario Maker
Although I haven't been super excited for Super Mario Maker based on the initial pitch, we've slowly been drip-fed more and more information over the past month or so, and some of it looks intriguing. Now, I've had the chance to play the game myself, and left pretty satisfied outside of one lingering issue.   read

Splatoon updates
It seems like every time I boot up Splatoon, Callie and Marie are telling me about something new added to the game. Weapon variations are added all the time, and just recently, a big 2.0 patch hit. New gear, new types of weap...   read

KING K. ROOL & KK SLIDER
The new update for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS is out in the wild now, bringing with it new stages, Mii costumes, tournament mode, and balance changes. Included for free in the update is a K. K. Slider costume for th...   read

8===D
Nothing to do this 4th of July? How about some deals? Because we've got some deals. I mean they're not Black Friday good but they're pretty good. Sorta. Kinda. (Do we earn our copywriting merit badge now, Mr. Scoutmaster?).&n...   read

Roving Rogue
When I heard of a game concept that starts you off at the last boss and takes you back through his castle as the story progresses, I was intrigued. Sadly, the mere premise of Roving Rogue is probably its strongest quality.   read

[email protected]
Nintendo has just announced a new intiiative to cater to indie games called [email protected] The basic idea is dead simple -- starting right now until the oddly specific 8:59 AM PST on June 22, you can download demos for select ...   read

Smash Bros.
Lucas is one of those characters that people will play no matter how good or bad he is in a given Smash Bros. game. Mother/Earthbound fans are like that. Just look at the comments in the announcement post for Earthbound Begin...   read

Ryu Smash Impressions
Remember the first time you went online with Street Fighter IV with your favorite character, Hakan, and fought about 100 Ryus in a week? And they all spammed Hadoukens and always woke up with a Shoryuken? Wouldn't you like to...   read

I predict the new Battlefield this year will probably be a 2142 sequel, because futuristic shooters are currently in and EA is playing If that ends up being I think they lost a hell of an opportunity for not releasing a sequel for it
