My Nintendo has a new mission for points, but it's pretty lame

As we talked about the other day, and in the past at length, My Nintendo has been met with varying degrees of enthusiasm. Either way, anecdotally, I've noticed a huge dropoff in Miitomo participation in the past few months, and Nintendo is ...   read

Splatoon's 'last ever Splatfest' will feature Callie vs. Marie

Eiji Aonuma wants more multiplayer for Zelda, but do you?

Multiplayer gameplay doesn't mix often with the Zelda series, but when it does, it usually puts forth enough panache to be worth it. Take Four Swords, one of my favorite Zelda games ever (especially the Anniversary Edition) -- it takes such...   read
