The power of Mario Kart and the upcoming Super Smash Brothers actually does seem to have had an affect on Wii U sales. For the first time since they've started selling refurbished Wii Us on their website, Nintendo have had to post a notice saying they're completely sold out of consoles.
When Grand Theft Auto V was first sold to the public, one of the quickest observations to surface broadly online was that there was a casino in Los Santos... but it wasn't open for business. What initially seemed like an obvious hint at future DLC has since become a source of frustration among some GTA V players who were hoping for chances to enter a gambling environment within the game.
Get the Pokemon demo. Do whatever you have to do, but get the demo. This especially goes for anyone looking for that little extra advantage when the game launches on November 21st. The demo, while short, is packed with unlockables that will transfer over to the new game. I've played through the demo six times, and here is what I think.
Demo's are not something Nintendo has done in the past, but with the Wii U and 3DS, it appears as if almost every AAA title will receive some kind of demo. Yes, the demo's are hampered by one major problem: limits on the number of times you can play. Regardless, it is nice to try something ahead of release. This time around, the demo is for Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. There are a number of ways to get codes for this demo, outlined below.
Nintendo's Wii U is almost two years old now, and while the gaming community is perhaps split on how successful it has been, there's no doubt that the Mario makers will be trying again in the future. That's become a little more tangible today, with the discovery of a rather specific job posting hinting at what could be in the future.
If you're interested in the new-gen re-release of GTA V, you'll want to keep your eyes peeled over the next week or so. The next issue of the Official PlayStation Magazine in the UK will have a 10 page feature dedicated to showcasing some of the brand new features of the uprezzed crime spree outing.
Do you enjoy the painful masochistic nature of Dark Souls? Reckon you're a big fan? Now, if you're a PC player, you'll get to prove it, with steam achievements set to be added to the public version in the coming weeks.
Early reports indicate that the current demo build of Assassin's Creed: Unity suffers from frame rate issues on Xbox One.
Halo: Master Chief Collection has gone gold according to 343 Studios, which means Xbox One owners will be able to pre-download the title later today. If you have been eagerly anticipating the game, it's only a few short weeks away! There are a number of things to take note of, however, that could impact what you get on day one.
I almost - note I said almost - regret purchasing my Xbox One last month. I love Assassins Creed and probably would have bought the new Assassins Creed Xbox One bundle on day one. It is a fantastic value that should appeal to a number of people who are yet living in a world without an Xbox One (Who wants to do that!).
