In Defense of 3DS Streetpass

Ono-san hit me!

Yesterday was a Super Street Fighter IV event in Hamburg, Germany. Capcom invited press and some players from the German community to meet Yoshinori Ono, the producer of the game.

Part Of Me Died When Gamestop Lied

Gamestop has always been a bit questionable to gamers in their retail tactics. First, they give you crummy trade-in value for your games at a fraction of what you originally paid. Then, they have exclusive deals that say "b...

Question to Nintendo apologists: Hasn't Apple proven that you can appeal to both the public and your fan base at the same time?

For the record, I agree 100% with Jim's recent article "Nintendo of America needs to STFU". However, I wanted to hone in on one particular aspect of the article, the idea that Nintendo has left behind its older fans. I do fe...
