Nintendo Offers New Purchase Options

wii-u-eshop-options_129x129 Nintendo is taking another step in the right direction this week as they begin to roll out new purchasing options for Nintendo Wii U and 3DS owners. At this time, it is strictly available in North America, although I suspect the feature to launch in Europe soon. Essentially, Nintendo owners can now do almost everything Xbox and PS4 owners have been able to do for years when it comes to purchasing games via a computer or smart phone.

 

Nintendo as a Brand is in Decline

nintendo_cover_129x129 It's not an opinion. It is a fact. Nintendo's brand has taken series blows over the years, and the company now sits in spot 100 out of 100 when it comes to the worlds most valuable brands. Many analysts predict that Nintendo won't even make the list in 2015.

 

Nintendo HD Part 3 – Zelda, Always More Zelda

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time Review A few month ago, I looked at Rare developed titles that should be re-released. A few weeks after that, I examined two Mario titles I would like to see again with updated visuals. It has been a busy few months for Nintendo, and I've finally found the time to work on my Nintendo HD series once again. This week, its time to look at Nintendo's second largest franchise: The Legend of Zelda

 
 

Forget (But not Really) Smash Bros Wii U! Captain Toad is the Game You Want!

Captain Toad I'm kidding. Smash Wii U will be a fantastic title and completely worth the purchase, but I'm personally worried that Captain Toad is going to get overlooked since it will be released after a Nintendo giant. Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is coming, and from the newest trailer, he isn't coming alone. If my memory serves me right, we haven't seen Toadette in a adventure game since Paper Mario on the GameCube. She's back, and appears to play an important role in the games story.

 

The Problems with DLC Evident in Forza Horizon 2; Nintendo does it Right

ForzaHorizon2 DLC is definitely a hot topic since it began being a thing. Nntendo was always on record saying DLC was not something they would be interested in doing. Their philosophy was that they were giving consumers what they paid for: the game, the COMPLETE game, that was developed. That philosophy has gone straight into the garbage can, however, as Nintendo realizes the benefits of having DLC: Mario Golf: World Tour, Pikmin 3, Mario Kart, Hyrule Warriors, and more are going to nickle and dime you ...

Nintendo is Prepared to deal with Quitters in Super Smash Bros

Super_smash_bros_01 There is nothing worse in online games than someone who rage quits. It sucks when playing sports games especially since games are generally one-on-one; it is less of an issue with first person shooter titles as the game will just get repopulated with another player. Super Smash Bros, both for the 3DS and Wii U, falls into the former. If one of four players quits, the game is altered for the worst.

 

The Success of Forza Horizon 2 is Good for Racing Genre

Forza Horizon Forza Horizon 2 is one of the best games on the Xbox One to date, and it is getting universal praise from almost every major gaming website on the web, aside from Polygon. The success of Horizon 2 is really great news for ALL racing genre fans, regardless of platform preferences.

 

Buying Games on Launch Day: Do you do it?

KidsPlayingVideoGames_full_690x384 When I was younger and lacked any real responsibilities, I was fairly free with my money. When the Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker came out on GameCube, I bought it on day one. When Halo and Halo 2 launched, I bought both those games on launch day. Things have changed, at least for myself, but I'm not sure if it's because I'm getting older, or if in general, people are not buying games on launch day like they use to.

 
 

Super Smash Bros Wii U Controller Bundle Surfaces

cfnqx2w8ulbqwog4bbtk Amazon is often at the forefront of showing off products first. Today, a Super Smash Bros Wii U game bundle, which includes the game, controller, and controller attachment, has been listed on the site for 99.99. While no official release date has been announced by Nintendo, I think it is safe to say we will still be seeing this title before the holidays.
