Punch-Out!! photo

Would you play Donald Trump's Punch-Out!!?

[Art by Catlateral Damage creator Chris Chung.] The Punch-Out!! series is known for being politically incorrect in a cartoonish and lovable way. Some would argue that presidential hopeful Donald Trump shares that same brand of charm, and by...

Little Mac's true calling revealed

Believe it or not, but someone at Nintendo actually liked the Captain Falcon's ass tribute amiibo video we did last month. Thanks to that happenstance, I ended up with an extra Little Mac amiibo a couple of days ago. I felt it was my ...

Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! photo

Watch Mike Tyson get punched out in Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!

I would apologize for the spoiler in the headline, but come on. We all know what was going to happen. It takes tons of practice to work up to Mike Tyson in Punch-Out!!, so of course the real Mike Tyson is not going to stand a chance when p...

NES Remix 2 reviewed photo

Review: NES Remix 2

NES Remix was able to scratch an itch for many retro enthusiasts out there, but it lacked a certain spark that made it a must-buy for the average gamer. It would be hard to really consider half of the selections "classic," and it lacke...

Little Mac may be the fastest Super Smash Bros. fighter

With the announcement of Little Mac, of Punch-Out!! fame, coming to the upcoming Wii U/3DS edition of Super Smash Bros., many (myself included) have been wondering just how well the pint-sized puncher is going to fare against the likes of ...

These two blindfolded Punch-Out!! speedruns are must see

I used to think I was pretty good at both Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! and Super Punch-Out!!; that is until I saw these two amazing blindfolded speedruns that took place during the currently ongoing Awesome Games Done Quick 2014 charity marath...

Tyson plays Punch-Out photo

'Up yours, dude' Tyson wins at Punch-Out for the 1st time

American boxer and general guy-to-be-scared-of Mike Tyson was too busy punching people in the face to play videogames when NES classic Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! released. Fox Sports had him take on Glass Joe, apparently for the first time. ...

Starting today until August 4th on Club Nintendo, you'll be able to pick up Aura-Aura Climber (100 Coins), Star Fox 64 (200 Coins), Donkey Kong '94 (100 Coins), and Super Punch Out!! (150). While I can't wholly recommend Aura-Aura Climber, ...

Captain N concept art reveals Paperboy as the main hero

Kickstarter Punch Out!! book co-creator meets Mike Tyson

Check out this sick 11-minute NES chiptune rock medley

Guitarist Psycho Crusher, whose amazing rock arrangements I've shared numerous times in the past, originally composed this latest jam with the intent to play it live as a full band. Instead, he decided to turn it into a chiptune medley com...

Virtual Console anniv. photo

Nintendo reveals dates for Virtual Console anniversary

This whole "Virtual Console 30th Anniversary" thing has been a bit confusing for all of us. So here's the scoop now that the dust has settled: on certain dates this year, you'll have the opportunity to download select games on the Wii U eSh...


Loads of new games are coming to the eShop

I have to preface this article with this statement -- once upon a time, I had absolutely no confidence in the eShop. Initially, I saw a marketplace where Nintendo was slowly drip-feeding us 20 year old games once a month. I saw how WiiWare ...


Punch-out!! parody is a knockout

  I love Punch-out!! It doesn't matter if it's on the NES, SNES or Wii, the Punch-out!! series is by far the best boxing franchise ever created. When the iconic game made its triumphant return to the squared video game circle in 2009 I...


Sword and Sworcery is my first must-have iPad game

A lot of people still doubt that the iPad is a "valid" gaming console, pointing out that most games for the thing are either ports or shovelware. There is also the argument that since the iPad has no dedicated gaming buttons or directional...


Come watch Doc Louis take a beating

The Club Nintendo-exclusive stand-alone WiiWare game Doc Louis' Punch-Out!! appears to be finalized and ready to download for those who spent their "coins" (or whatever magical currency Nintendo uses) on it.Someone was kind enough...


Punch-Out!! developer talks sequel, create-a-boss mode

In a recent chat with Official Nintendo Magazine, Ken Yeeloy, producer of Punch-Out!! for the Nintendo Wii, mentioned his desire to make a sequel to the title. Would it be Super Punch-Out!! Wii? From the interview: "I would love to mak...


Bacalao! Punch-Out!

 Señor Luigi Santa-Rosa Bacalao, our intrepid video game connoisseur from Havana Cuba, is a man who loves American flavors. He spit-cleans his 1958 Buick Special (he only owns a fender, so far) hand-oils his 1897 J.W. Emerson st...


The Thing and Hulk play some Punch-Out!!

GamerVision caught this ad that's appearing inside some big comics right now. As you can see, it's the Thing and the Hulk battling it out through the new Punch-Out!!This ad is completely unrealistic. First of all, look at the Thing's hands....


Check out this Punch-Out!! Little Mac custom figure

The new Punch-Out!! is probably one of my favorite Wii games ever, and it makes me happy to know other people seem to be digging it too. Leave it to a toy customizer to take things one step further and create toys fromn the game. Collectabl...


Review: Punch-Out!!

It’s criminal that Nintendo let 15 years pass between the Super Nintendo release of Super Punch-Out!! and Punch-Out!! on the Wii. Between then and now, there have been plenty of opportunities to drag Little Mac out of retirement -- th...


Pink Punch-Out!! hoodie leaves me wordless -- well not quite

I am literally livid with myself for not knowing that these existed before today. Evidently Nintendo was giving away pink Punch-Out!! hoodies just like Little Mac wears at the Nintendo World Store in New York yesterday. Now I live in DC, bu...


Little Mac is ready to get back in the ring in Punch-Out!!

You know what I really miss? Old school early '90s promotional videos for videogames. Sure, they were all pretty cheesy, but those promos always did the job of hyping up videogames for me. I still remember the day when I got a video cassett...

Right, I’ve heard there’s some stupidly expensive hdmi converter for the GameCube BUT as far as I know the Wii plays every NGC game and can use a component cable - so what’s the point?
