Some Switch games won't force motion controls, including Arms

One of the things I loved about the Wii U is how much Nintendo backpedaled on motion. Sure some games had it as an option to aim with the GamePad's gyroscope, but compare say, Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze's smooth button-based rolling as op...   read

Nioh's director: 'This is meant to be a masocore game, we consciously avoided making it easy'

I remember walking by the Nioh video reel at TGS in 2015 and thinking "why isn't this playable?" It was one of the most attractive games at the show, but at the time it had just been introduced by Team Ninja, and we knew very little about i...   read

There is yet another Guilty Gear Xrd update coming

Not to talk too negatively about fighting games and their constant updates, but this is one of the reasons why I find it hard to get truly invested in any one particular series. Guilty Gear and BlazBlue have so many updates, sequels, and DL...   read

Nintendo Switch is skipping Miiverse and StreetPass

Much to some fans' dismay, Miiverse and StreetPass, Nintendo's rather novel communication systems for Wii U and 3DS, weren't mentioned last night during the extensive Switch presentation. If that absence left you anxious about the fate of t...   read

The sad, manic face of Wii Music is performing at the Trump inauguration

By E3 2008, the Wii had just passed the Xbox 360 in US sales, despite having come out a year later. With the PS3 flagging, it was Nintendo's race to win. And then we met Ravi. Riding high, Nintendo came into E3 2008 with absolutely nothing...   read

Is Donkey Kong king of New York in the new Mario?

In a smoke-filled theatre on Broadway 84 years ago we were introduced to "Kong, the Eighth Wonder of the World." And we all know what happened after that: Jack Black's hubris led to a damn dirty ape scaling our towers with our women. Sure w...   read

Hold your blocks: Minecraft is also coming to the Switch

Some more Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild minutia (Minish-uh?) for you: the game is 13gb on Wii U and 13.4 on Nintendo Switch. They're both out March 3 and I doubt the .4gb will influence which one you buy. It is worth remembering, thou...   read

Nintendo confirms that Zelda: Breath of the Wild hits Wii U at the same time as Switch
