Review: Pocket Sprite

The Pocket Sprite looks like something that couldn't have existed 20 years ago. The miniature console resembles a Game Boy Color but is only about 1/6th the size. It started as a self-challenge by its designer to see how small he could...

Review: Kirby Battle Royale

When the December 2017 NPD Group data came out earlier this month, the biggest surprise wasn’t that the Switch sold 1.5 million units in the US. That was expected given its meteoric rise. No, the biggest surprise was the 3DS family, a...

Fail Factory is the new VR game from the ReCore developer

Armature Studio, the developer who's most well-known for ReCore in recent years, is making a new game that's maybe diametrically opposed to ReCore. At least in terms of scope. Rather than expansive stretches of sand and not much else,...

Review: Cooking Mama: Sweet Shop

I still remember the day I bought Cooking Mama for the Nintendo DS. It was a hot September afternoon in the Bay Area. My best friend at the time and I visited the Best Buy in Sausalito and each purchased a copy. Giggling like the schoolgirl...

Years later, Nintendo Land is back on the Wii U eShop

Nintendo Land is a short-lived thrill, but it's still a game I think every Wii U owner should seek out. It makes use of the console's hardware in ways few other games have or ever will again, and there's enough variation between the mini-g...

Mario Paint's fly-swatting mini-game lives on

One week from today, I'll get to relive Gnat Attack. The chaotic fly-swatting mini-game from Mario Paint lives on in Super Mario Maker, and I can't express how happy that makes me. It's not too surprising that this and other nods are featur...

Rusty's Real Deal Baseball: Haggle a dog to buy games

Leave it to Nintendo to make "free to play" weird. This time, thankfully, it's my kind of weird. Rusty's Real Deal Baseball is not a baseball game. Rather, it's a compilation of baseball-themed minigames. There's a hitting minigame, for exa...

Wii Party U dramatically increases Wii U sales in Japan

Wii Party U probably isn't going to set the world on fire, but it just might help save the Wii U. The minigame-fest hit shelves in Japan last week along with a special console bundle that also includes New Super Mario Bros. U, a W...

 
 
Wii Party U review photo

Review: Wii Party U

Nintendo has a storied history with multiplayer games. Back in the days of the Nintendo 64 and the GameCube, its power to get four people in a room together was unrivaled. Now, every console supports four or more controllers, and the online...

Kung Foot: Rayman Legends gets great new minigame

Last week, Ubisoft held an event for Rayman Legends, a game that's been a long time coming thanks to a delay on account of incoming multiplatform ports. While I figured we might just about have seen everything we need to know about the much...

Game & Wario video blow out

The last time I posted about Game & Wario, there was much editorializing on how I found the game initially disappointing but was slowly becoming more hopeful that it would find excellence. These new videos from the Japanese r...

Tickle sleeping children's feet in Game & Wario

Everbody's buddy "NintenDaan" Koopman directed us to these latest videos for the upcoming Game & Wario. Now, I must admit that I haven't been following the development of the Wii U party fest because the word "mini-game" has become suc...

Review: Bentley's Hack Pack

Sony does a pretty terrible job at promoting its first-party games. For instance, take Sly Cooper. Droves of gamers were not only unaware that Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time launched last week, but they were completely in the dark in regards t...

Did you start your morning with PS Vita's Wake-up Club?

Let's face it: waking up in the morning sucks, but Sony has a new game of sorts to make that harsh reality a little more tolerable. Wake-up Club is essentially an alarm clock with social game elements for your PlayStation Vita. Th...

Review: Rabbids Land

It's hard not to like the Rabbids. Cute in an ugly way, stupid in an admirable way, the bug-eyed creatures bear an innate charm, and it's hardly surprising they swiftly stepped out of Rayman's shadow to star in their own franchise.  It...

Review: Nintendo Land

The Wii U GamePad is a lot more versatile than it looks. Some potential consumers have not been quite as inspired by the system as they were by the immediate uniqueness of the Wii and its remote controller. After all, tablets and smartphone...

Float on with Nintendo Land's Balloon Trip Breeze trailer

Like most of you, I was taken aback when Nintendo first revealed Nintendo Land during its E3 conference. But after actually, ya know, PLAYING the thing, I started warming up to it. It's less the kind of "party game" we are familiar with and...
