Nintendo confirms that Zelda: Breath of the Wild hits Wii U at the same time as Switch

Yesterday was all about the Nintendo Switch. So much so, that the publisher neglected to even really mention the Wii U, relegating it to the status of that distant relative that you aren't even aware of until someone mentions it. But they c...   read

All of the Nintendo Switch March launch games in one place

Are you ready to pick up a brand new Nintendo Switch at launch! Well you better prepare for all of those launch games -- wait. If you actually look at the fine print, a ton of that presentation isn't actually coming out until later in the y...   read

Maybe the My Nintendo Store will be better than the current digital discount junkyard

My Nintendo has failed to impress day in and day out, and "updates" or news usually involve a new bad discount of some kind. I think they were banking too heavily on people getting swept up in Miitomo and Super Mario Run, in the sense ...   read

Here's what the Nintendo Switch in-store GameStop pre-order situation is like in the US

Having just returned from pre-ordering my Nintendo Switch and Zelda Special Edition, I have a better idea of what the in-store situation is like at GameStop. Going off of calls and experiences with roughly 10 stores, and an inside source at...   read

The price of the Nintendo Switch, and all its innards, is too damn high

Amidst all of the hype of the Nintendo Switch presentation, let's break one thing down -- this thing is going to be one of the priciest Nintendo consoles yet if you actually look at what everything costs. Now, $300 for the console itse...   read

Here's everything that happened at Nintendo's big Switch reveal

Well uh, that went longer than expected. Although not a whole lot wowed me outside of the Zelda stuff, we got what we really wanted with the Nintendo Switch presentation -- a price, and a date. So much isn't actually coming until later...   read

Skyrim script extender aims to save mods that broke with the Special Edition

Whenever an update comes along for just about anything on PC, it breaks shit. It can be as minor as a small graphical upgrade for World of Warcraft making certain add-ons obselete, or as big as say, Skyrim: Special Edition complet...   read

Final Fantasy XIV is getting a XV collab, and I hope it involves big jackets

Although people are quick to dump on Lightning, she had a really great collaboration with Final Fantasy XIV this past year, and I'd love to see more limited time crossovers like that without going overboard (generally the team just sti...   read

Rocket League hits one billion games played in just under two years

Rocket League references are just about everywhere at this point -- it's creeped its way into pop culture, and isn't going anywhere. And a recent stat from developer Psyonix (which I still confuse with Psygnosis, RIP) backs that up -- ...   read

Nintendo Download: F-Zero X

I don't have any clever words of wisdom for this week -- there's literally just one game apiece for the Wii U and 3DS. F-Zero X for the former, and Shift DX for the latter. That's it! It's a shame Nintendo hasn't done anything wit...   read

These Nioh screens are magnificent

Man, Disney World used to have a badass mythology museum in the Japan area of Epcot, which showcased a bunch of creatures like Tengu, Kappa, and Kitsune. Now it's a "Kawaii Museum," which is still neat, but the former was just so wonderfull...   read

Kingdom Hearts 3D translates well from portable to console

This week I put a preview build of Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue to the test, and so far, I'm happy with how well at least one of the three games that comprises this compilation has translated -- Kingdom Hearts 3D, or,...   read

This Kingdom Hearts stained glass memorial in Japan is awesome

Pop-up advertisements run the gamut of lame to mesmerizing, and I think this new one from Square Enix is definitely in that latter category here. To promote the upcoming release of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue (which is...   read

That King of Fighters XIV graphical overhaul is here

I'm still very happy with King of Fighters XIV, and although I can't find that many people that actually play it, it's still getting plenty of love from SNK and the community at large. Part of that passion from the former group has tak...   read

Danganronpa V3 is out this week in Japan

Danganronpa might be niche, but it's a big enough hit in Japan and western regions to warrant spinoffs, an anime, a VR game, and now, a third proper iteration. That actually launches in Japan tomorrow on January 12 as Danganronpa V3: Killin...   read

China still isn't lifting their ban on Pokemon Go because it's 'too dangerous'

From the start, we knew that Pokemon Go probably wouldn't release in China. The government is just too paranoid about it, and as we've seen in other regions, they don't want folks wandering around where they shouldn't be roaming. As of this...   read

Atlus just opened up the 25th anniversary Shin Megami Tensei site

My first ever experience with the SMT series was with its spinoff, Persona, back in 1996. My older cousin randomly picked it up because of the demonic imagery, and we spent hours huddled around a crappy TV playing it, switching off at key p...   read

Suda muses on creating a console defining Switch game like he did with No More Heroes

No More Heroes really shook up the action space. Although I prefer the sequel's 2D retro minigames over the first's "job" system, the original really nailed it when it came to characterization. It has some of the best bosses in gaming,...   read

Again?! We all failed the second Pokemon Sun & Moon Global Mission

Kuja and his eyeliner are joining the cast of Dissidia Final Fantasy arcade

I think Kuja is a pretty underrated villain in the Final Fantasy stable. He has one of the best themes, and along with Kefka, is one of the most formidable antagonists in the series. Kuja also has a great little moment with Zidane at t...   read

Yet another game canceled for Wii U, possibly moved to Switch
