Nintendo Download: Azure Striker Gunvolt: The Anime

I'm glad that Azure Striker Gunvolt has some sort of audience. An audience big enough, at least, to warrant to full entries, a spinoff, and an anime. It came out of nowhere with none of the hype of Mighty No. 9 and fully surpassed it critic...   read

20 minutes with Breath of the Wild left me wanting more

I didn't have to get up at 6:00am on a Saturday morning to go out in the freezing cold, sit on a train for two hours and spend 2000 yen each way to get my hands on the Nintendo Switch. But I did. I wanted to see what Nintendo's new toy had ...   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
