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

Kamiya shares his favorite Wonderful 101 songs, sadly tells us the soundtrack is out of print

While I didn't go as gaga about Wonderful 101 as some, I was wondering where all of the buzz was. Maybe it was the weird off-putting Sentai setup that made some westerners stay away, or the low installbase of the Wii U, but this game d...   read

Pachter says Switch is 'easy to develop for'

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

Destructoid's award for Best Wii U Game of 2016 goes to...

It was a regrettably light year for Wii U releases, but that's not to say it was uneventful. This was the year that gave us an Atlus-developed, idol-centric JRPG that not only brought the storied Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem franchise...   read

Review: Shantae: 1/2 Genie Hero

Bunch of $10 deals at GameStop: Ratchet and Clank, Star Wars Battlefront, and more

Ratchet and Clank for ten bucks is pretty much a steal. GameStop has a silent 'sale' on several console and PC games at this Hamilton sweet spot that might be worth a gander. Free shipping only happens if your total order is $24.99 or more ...   read

Drive your very own Mario Kart through the streets of Japan

Nintendo: Quit cranking it to Super Mario Run and buy some other Marios too

The very first hint for Nintendo's new cell phone game, Super Mario Run, is that you can play one-handed. It's been a major part of the marketing, too. Here's Shigeru Miyamoto playing Super Mario Run while eating a large cake, from last wee...   read

Will Bloodstained be the latest game to ditch Wii U?

With basically every indie/Kickstarter developer pulling a 180 on their Wii U plans, it stands to reason that Bloodstained would too -- though nothing has been officially announced yet. Some people want the team to just tell backers now, so...   read

Another Banjo Kazooie inspired platformer bites the dust on Wii U

Yooka-Laylee is set for an April 2017 release, with a possible Switch port in the works

You know, up until this year, I’ve never had the chance to play the likes of Banjo Kazooie, Conker’s Bad Fur Day or any of the other oft-acclaimed Rareware classics. As a child, I never owned a Nintendo 64 of my own, and I rarel...   read
