What the Golf? is everything I love about sports games

What the Golf? bills itself as "the golf game for people who don't play golf." It's spot on. One quick scroll through this gif-filled about page is all you'll need to know if this is your type of silly, experimental take on sports. You can ...

NES Golf 'tribute' removed from Nintendo Switch firmware

In what is surely to become an interesting piece of gaming folklore, Nintendo have now quietly removed the hidden version of NES classic, Golf, from the firmware of the Switch.The hidden emulation of the 1984 release was found tucked away w...

Review: Golf Story

My expectations were a bit skewed going into Golf Story. I heard "golf role-playing game" and painted a picture in my mind of a grand, sweeping, save-the-world story in which problems are resolved (for some reason) with clubs and balls rath...

Golf Story is out this week on Nintendo Switch

[Update: Nintendo of America has confirmed a September 28 launch as well. Yay!] When's Golf Story out? Patience! It'll be here soon.  (That's what I've been telling myself for weeks now.) Sidebar Games listed a September 2017 release f...

NES Golf found within the Switch's firmware

Way back in July, I reported that the Switch had some built-in emulation capabilities. Just the other day we got a little more information on what exactly that was. It appears that all Switch systems contain a copy of Golf for the NES, it e...

Review: Everybody's Golf

After a few more days spent wrapping up Everybody's Golf following my review in progress, I'm not sick of the game yet. Quite the opposite! I'm even more in tune with Clap Hanz' vision. I want more people to get in on this fun and hop onlin...

Review in Progress: Everybody's Golf

I spent most of my weekend playing Everybody's Golf. I regret nothing. Not a single moment. After a way-too-short online test session in which I swam laps as a blue-skinned space dad and dropped shruggies while lounging in a serene course, ...

Review: Infinite Minigolf

A video game about miniature golf is sort of strange, if you think about it. Minigolf is already an imitation of full-scale golf, reduced to putting and avoiding obstacles. Making a video game based on minigolf just adds another l...

See how Everybody's Golf is shaping up for mobile

You might recall that Sony has wide-ranging plans to bring properties like PaRappa the Rapper, Wild Arms, and No Heroes Allowed to mobile devices through its ForwardWorks subsidiary. Also on that list of titles is Everybody's Golf. It's fir...

Super Ultra Dead Rising 4 Mini Golf comes out June 20

If you never bothered to look into Dead Rising 4's season pass, I'm right there with you. As a result, we both missed hearing about Super Ultra Dead Rising 4 Mini Golf, one of the included add-ons. It's up-to-four-player co-op mini golf on ...

Everybody's Golf really won me over with its online beta

Over the weekend, Sony and Clap Hanz ran a closed online test for Everybody's Golf and despite spending a good several hours with it (playing as a wise blue-skinned golf dad, like you do), I deeply regret not sneaking in even more time with...

Everybody's Golf confirmed for August in the West

Well, this is nice! Just a couple days ago, I was hoping we'd get the next Hot Shots Golf soon after the Japanese release on August 31, but it turns out we're getting the game slightly beforehand here in the West. Everybody's Golf launches ...

New Hot Shots Golf aims for an August launch in Japan

What's the holdup on New Hot Shots Golf? I don't know, but the happy-go-lucky golf title is confirmed for an August 31, 2017 release in Japan, which hopefully puts the Western launch not far behind. This trailer covers much of the same gro...

Review: Mario Sports Superstars

CJ takes a long drag on his cigarette, slowly letting the smoke fill his already weakened lungs. He glances down at his whiskey sour, nearly empty. Exhaling with a small cough, he stirs the one remaining ice cube with his middle finger befo...

Review: 100ft Robot Golf

The best episode of Party Down (tied with every other episode) is “Not On Your Wife Opening Night,” in part because of its pitch-perfect community theater parody. There’s something honorable about the earnest “let&rs...

Oh, right, there's a new Hot Shots Golf for PS4!

Well, this is a pleasant surprise! I had forgotten there was a new Hot Shots Golf (Everybody's Golf in Europe and Japan) coming to PlayStation 4. While I'm a fairly casual player by superfan standards, I still feel like this is one of thos...

Man, Dangerous Golf looks really really great

The sportsman in me wants to love golf, but the lover-of-exciting-things in me just can't be bothered. As a youth, the best part about hitting the links was wandering into the rough to try to recover balls that other golfers gave up on. Sl...

If you miss Kirby's Dream Course, take a look at Bulby

Kirby's Dream Course holds a special place in gaming history. Despite releasing more than 20 years ago and featuring a unique gameplay hook, it didn't see many copycats. Sure, there have been other golf games, but nothing has been quite lik...

I'm a regular Jack Nicholson at Winning Putt

Bandai Namco had us drive all the way out to San Francisco's Presidio for its latest game announcement this week. That's the National Park at San Francisco's northern tip overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge, which is red, actually. It was al...

100ft Robot Golf is a sports game I can get behind

An email showed up in my inbox with the words "100ft Robot Golf," and I couldn't click it soon enough. That's the title of the next game from Roundabout studio No Goblin. It looks great. This isn't merely standard golf with giant robotic ch...
