1-2-Switch is not the next Wii Sports

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

Charles Martinet, the voice of Mario (and more) is always delightful to watch

While you'd be hard pressed to find someone who works at Nintendo and says they hate their job on camera, Charles Martinet, the voice of Mario (and many more like Luigi) seems to genuinely love his job. He kind of has to if he's been d...   read

Breath of the Wild is only 900p on the Switch, for those who care

With each new console generation comes the expected boost in hardware power, but Nintendo has never been a typical console manufacturer. For all intents and purposes, the Nintendo Switch just looks like a portable Wii U, which may be why Th...   read

Metroid prequel fan game is out now, but how long will it survive?

Most Nintendo fans agree that if there's one series that the publisher consistently fumbles, it's Metroid. Okay, so I get that maybe they weren't thrilled with the reception with Other M, but to see them shut down other fan games in additio...   read

Mario may want to think twice about ditching the Mushroom Kingdom

I can't stop thinking about New Donk City. The Super Mario Odyssey locale and its troublingly human citizens just won't leave my mind. Are they people-people? If so, what is Mario? And how, exactly, does the Kong family fit in? These are ...   read

Randy Pitchford: 'We were talking to Nintendo [about Borderlands 3 on Switch], but that stopped'

Third-party AAA rakes in a lot of cash for the likes of Valve, Sony, and Microsoft, but once again it appears as if Nintendo will be missing out on a few big publisher's shared wealth. In addition to EA having a "wait and see" approach, and...   read

Nioh impressions: Humans are hard to read, armour actually does things, mid stance katana is the best, Coop is fun, looting gets annoying, twilight missions are bullcrap, running through is viable, story seems like a generic Japanese monster
