Don't miss Nintendo's Cyber Deals on Wii U and 3DS games

The word "cyber" will forever read real weird to me, but deals? I love me some deals. You might've seen that Nintendo is running its digital game sale on the Wii U and 3DS storefronts, but if not (maybe you're taking the ignorance-is-bliss ...   read

Review: Exile's End

There was once a time when 2D games were the tentpole releases that companies pumped out to make the big bucks. Those days are long gone, but the sidescrollers live on and are a staple in today's landscape thanks to indie developers. The in...   read

Nintendo Download: Mario Party Star Rush

It's uh, a stale week unless you're really big into Mario Party, and I don't know a lot of people who are at this point in their long, fight-filled Mario Party careers. I think we've all had enough broken controllers, cartridges, discs...   read

So, just what is left for the Wii U?

Sega's 3D Classics line can't stop, won't stop

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...   read
