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

Igarashi doesn't sound confident about a Wii U port of Bloodstained

When we first reported Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night had been pushed back into 2018, I openly wondered about the fate of the Wii U and Vita ports. As a backer of the Kickstarter campaign, who only backed it after the Wii U stretch ...   read

LEGO Dimension's Adventure Time pack is great, other than the splitting up of Finn and Jake

I was initially kind of surprised at how WB is handling the LEGO Dimensions series, but with the Toys to Life bubble bursting for some (or exploding, in the case of Disney), it actually makes sense. They've shucked the re-release conce...   read

Oh good, Yooka-Laylee will have a physical edition
