The Final Black Sheep Story: Samus the Underdog

Metroid doesn't sell well in Japan. It wasn't until 1999 and when the words "Project Dolphin" was being thrown around that Nintendo realized this and thought...fine, let's make it a Western game. It will be for the new system. One problem...


MAGFest 6: Dtoid Suite Time in the making

You want in on the "Suite" Time? Who doesn't? Of course if you want in, you have to be registered for MAGFest 6. It is only $35 ($40 at the door) for four days (January 3-6, 2008) of gaming madness! If you are a gamer, geek, dork, nerd, o...


Metroid: Black Sheep of Nintendo

Jigga say wha? One of the Big N's top franchises is considered a black sheep? Uh huh! The title, Metroid, seems to have been created inspite of Miyamoto, not along with his vision. The thought process probably went like this, "He is doing ...


Why JACK is how he is...

One night I did some research. More specifically, research on JACK to try to determine why he loathes Nintendo. I came across the usual ... pictures of furries, anti-Nintendo posts, emails to Bungie creator about how he dreams about him (no...


Pretty Cool Mario Candy thingies

While perusing through the plethora of websites on the interweb, I came across this little gem. Apparently someone thought it would be neat to create a Mario Mushroom shaped tin and then fill it with mushroom shaped sour candies. (Sweet...


Will Nintendo ever get its respect back?

Hmmmm...good question. A lot of people said they lost it back in the N64 days. Others probably would say GameCube days. Why did they lose it? Is it for pushing quality titles like Turok: Dinosaur Hunter, GoldenEye007, WCW: World Tour, Super...


World War 360

World War 360 is exactly my experience and how I feel with the Xbox 360 system. When wars do appear the initial feeling is...do I really want to get into another battle? It could make life easier and more prosperous. Do I really need ano...


Space World is back! Well, sort of...

After E3 died and was resurrected as a press-only convention, the public wondered where they would go. Many other conventions like PAX have since picked up the torch, but there was one convention in particular that sought to bring back the ...


Virtual Console Gripes

I love it. You love it. Nintendo loves it. The Virtual Console makes maxing out your credit card fun and easy. I can spend hundreds of dollars before even leaving my bed in the morning (or afternoon as is often the case.) Yet despite the ap...


Smash Update: A rehash for your ears

The dojo has reecently been putting out some very excellent updates. With the new levels to new game moe and characters, it was pretty nice. That is why I can't falt them too much for this entry. You can't have nothing but gold all the time...


Smash Update CONTEST!

Guess what? You guys suck! None of you guessed it...haha, I kid I kid! That one was really out of LEFT field. You know I lubz you all! I haven't even got one right. Maybe Monday will be my day. As for rules or blah blah "legal" stuff, not...

E3 Keynotes Vote the Winner

So who's Top Dog Microsoft, Nintendo, or was it Sony? I thought the Microsoft Keynote displayed a lack of understanding from the executives as to whom their audience was. Couple that with a painful to watch Rock Band demo, a leaked demo...


Talking Dinosaurs Discuss Company Fanboyism

Direct Link in case the image is broken. I'm a huge fan of Ryan North's Dinosaur Comics, and felt the urge to share this recent one with you. There's plenty more video game related comics in the archives, your best bet is to search for ...
