Did Nintendo sell us a ROM of Super Mario Bros.?

The Virtual Console on the Wii and Wii U has been pretty crappy. While there are definitely a bunch of classic titles available, Nintendo's treatment of the service comes off as an afterthought. This is a company with one of the richest bac...   read

Nintendo Download: Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King

We have liftoff! The eShop is a little more exciting this week with Dragon Quest VIII for 3DS, which is also joined by Punch Club, Color Cubes, and a Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World demo. Not bad given the past month's lull peri...   read

Nintendo Download: F-Zero X

I don't have any clever words of wisdom for this week -- there's literally just one game apiece for the Wii U and 3DS. F-Zero X for the former, and Shift DX for the latter. That's it! It's a shame Nintendo hasn't done anything wit...   read

Pokemon Snap (view)finds itself on Wii U tomorrow

Nintendo Download: Mario Kart 64

It's the holidays, so it's expected to be a light eShop drop, but this is really light. I wonder if anyone is going to try to capitalize on the zero competition going into the Switch's release? Either way, we have Mario Kart 64 on the ...   read

Mario Kart 64 headed to Wii U in North America tomorrow

Mario Kart 64 is one of those games to make me go, "Wait, that wasn't already on Wii U? How?!" It's true! European players have had access to the classic friendship-ruining racer since January, but over here, nothing. Nada. Zilch. Well, unt...   read

Nintendo Download: Shantae: Half-Genie Hero

It's a really brief Christmas drop for the eShop -- I guess most developers figure people already spent all their holiday cash on gifts. But then again, post-Christmas eShop gift cards are a thing! Either way, on Wii U we have Shantae:...   read

Nintendo Download: Super Mario Run

Weird! Today I get to talk about the release of a Nintendo mobile game -- it's been months since Miitomo dropped, but Super Mario Run is set to debut today worldwide on iOS. It's free-to-play (and $10 to buy), and will feature a non-endless...   read

Rumor: Nintendo Switch will finally get the GameCube Virtual Console

For years, people thought that the GameCube would make an appearance on the Wii U. Hell, people even hacked the thing to do it, but a true Virtual Console never really came to fruition. The Virtual Console in general is weird as hell, as so...   read

Nintendo Download: Super Mario Maker 3DS

So uh, there isn't much here to go around this week. On Wii U, you're getting Advance Wars: Dual Strike on the Virtual Console. That's all she wrote. The 3DS is a bit more cheery, with Super Mario Maker 3DS, and a reminder for Swapdood...   read

I'm down for an NES Classic turbo controller

As a kid, games used to be tremendously hard. While I persevered, sometimes whipping out the NES Max or the Game Genie would be my answer. Back then, I mostly just wanted to fool around instead of trying to prove something; nowadays, I like...   read
