My Nintendo gets some Street Fighter themed rewards

My Nintendo is floundering, and the Big N doesn't seem interested enough in the service to alter it significantly. They had a chance to change things with the Switch but that hasn't happened yet (Switch rewards are still "coming soon"), and...   read

Blaster Master Zero's new update sounds right up my alley

Inti Creates may not be super well known, but their fantastic job with Mega Man 9 cemented my respect for them. They clearly understood what it meant to reboot a classic series and I had no doubt that Blaster Master Zero was going to be goo...   read

Of course Japan gets a cool Dragon Quest Metal Slime New 2DS XL

Man I'm just done with this "New" thing Nintendo. Is the "New" 3DS even new anymore? It's not, right? There's the New 3DS XL, and now the New 2DS XL. I know people have joked that the next move is the "New, New 3DS," which is something...   read

Nintendo won't hold a conference at E3 this year, either

Capcom's yearly earnings: Dead Rising 4 bombs, Resident Evil saves the day

Dead Rising 4 failed to make even half of what Capcom was hoping for. Having projected two million sales in the 2016 fiscal year, the lumbering husk of a once-great series didn't reach one million. Poor performance of the Xbox One outs...   read

Nintendo's updated release schedule shows the 3DS still has fight left in it

Nintendo says a lot of things, and their cardinal rule seems to be "deny, deny, deny." When the Wii U was rumored to be on the way out, they denied it, only to confirm it weeks later. Folks thought the 3DS would meet the same fate given tha...   read

Do you still do Pokemon Sun & Moon Global Missions? Game Freak is still making them

I played Pokemon Sun and Moon for weeks on end at launch. I was insatiable, and its postgame exceeded X and Y to the point where I could be busy for even longer. But eventually a lot of people I know stopped playing, the thri...   read

Kirby is also getting an 'action fighting game' this year

Review: Urban Trial Freestyle 2

Do not adjust your computer or phone screen. The game you are looking at is from 2017 and not, as its outward appearance would indicate, from 1998. Urban Trial Freestyle 2 not only has the graphic fidelity of a game from 20 years ago, but i...   read

Nintendo Download: Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap

The Switch keeps the hits coming week by week, even if they're multi-platform releases at this point. It's a fairly light offering with Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap and Fatal Fury, but the pace has been better than the Wii U and 3DS e...   read

Hey! Pikmin comes from the studio behind Yoshi's New Island

My expectations aren't high for Hey! Pikmin, but I'm holding out slight hope that it'll be enjoyable for what it is: a spinoff. That said, it's now confirmed (by way of the Australian ratings board) that the 3DS game is the work of Yoshi's ...   read
