Review: Paper Mario: Color Splash

I need to apologize in advance for what you're about to read. I'm about to gush about a game. I'm going to gush hard. I'm going to gush about its graphics, about its music, about its humor and about all the improvements it made over Pa...   read

So, just what is left for the Wii U?

With the release of Paper Mario: Color Splash today, the future of the Wii U is looking a bit thin. There is just one big Nintendo title left for the platform, and that appears to be it. The end of the Wii U feels a bit like the final ...   read

Review: Rive

It's weird for me to say I'm reviewing the final game from a developer. Two Tribes wasn't sold, nor is it shutting down. After 16 years and a changing industry it just can't keep up with, the team is just going to stop. Rive is supposedly t...   read

Toon Zelda is a g-g-g-g-g-g-g-g-girl

I was a bit surprised yesterday when Nintendo announced the next set of DLC for Hyrule Warriors had dropped. I knew it was coming, I just didn't expect it to come that day. Rumors pointed to Toon Zelda being the next new character for ...   read

Nintendo is launching a miniature NES this holiday

You know all of those knock-off NES replicas you've seen at random stores like Walmart for the last 10 years? Well they're oddly going to have some official competition this holiday season. Ninendo has announced today that it's launching a ...   read

Miyamoto: Star Fox Zero is the most underrated Wii U game

Game Informer recently caught up with famed developer Shigeru Miyamoto, and asked him what the most underrated game on the Wii U was. His answer was somewhat predictable in Star Fox Zero, a passion project that he worked on for many ye...   read

Nintendo: Wii U will 'continue to fight on,' even if only Zelda is planned for it

Nintendo had another doozy of a shareholder meeting last night, and talked about nearly every facet of their business, including the fabled NX. After not showing it at E3 they have in fact reconfirmed that it will launch in March 2017 this ...   read

Review: Tokyo Mirage Sessions FE

For a while there, it was easy to forget that Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem existed. Announced with great fanfare in 2013, we heard very little about the project for two years, until a trailer came along almost to proclaim "Yes, we ...   read

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is going to be one hell of an adventure

When I first heard that Nintendo was planning to focus exclusively on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for its E3 2016 booth, I triple-checked the wording. Only hands-on with Zelda? Really? That can't possibly be right! But it was, a...   read

The next Wii U and NX Zelda is called 'Breath of the Wild'

Nintendo opened up E3 today with a look at the new Zelda, and man does it look beautiful. It somehow manages to have that Nintendo feel while giving off an aura of Team Ico, and I'm really digging it. Chopping trees, hunting, cooking? That'...   read

Review: Star Fox Zero

Depending on how it's wielded, nostalgia can either be a powerful tool or a crippling crutch. No publisher knows this better than Nintendo. Star Fox Zero is obvious in its pitch -- "Did you like Star Fox 64? Okay, then you'll love this...   read

Review: Hyperkin ProCube controller
