Pokemon Battle Trozei Review

If you've never heard of Candy Crush Saga then you might live under a rock. Match 3 games are insanely popular, and have for the most part taken over Facebook and mobile. So, why shouldn't Nintendo attempt to profit from the craze? They did, and paired it with one of their most popular franchises, Pokemon.

Nintendo to Follow Skylanders and Disney Infinity

In mid April, news came out that Nintendo had the opportunity to have exclusivity for Skylanders, but decided to pass on that offer. Well, a few years later it appears as if Nintendo's mind has changed when it comes to interactive toys. According to Wire, via a twitpic, Nintendo is set to announce their own game and character collection at E3 this year. Nintendo confirmed that they were working on figurines during an investor call late last week, although ...

Nintendo Finances Still Fall Ahead of Juggernaut Releases

We haven't come to a point yet where headlines can read, "Wii U is Dead" despite claims from many that this is indeed the case. However, if Nintendo's finances do not improve in the Wii U division after the release of Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros, perhaps this what all major news outlets will be saying.

Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze Review

It feels so long ago that I went out and purchased a banana yellow Gameboy Pocket and copies of Donkey Kong Country and Donkey Kong Country 2. As a kid, I always had to pay for my own games as my parents refused to purchase games for birthdays or Christmas. For that reason, these two games were played a lot. Many years later, Nintendo is still releasing titles in the Donkey Kong Country franchise; how thankful long-time fans must be, because Nintendo ...

Kirby Triple Deluxe Review

To say that Nintendo has released more of something is nothing new. More Mario Kart, more Yoshi's Island, and now more Kirby. I use these three specific examples for a reason. More Mario Kart has always been a good thing, while more Yoshi's Island wasn't. Another game in the Kirby franchise is not like another Mario Kart game, but is leaps and bounds ahead of Yoshi's Island.

Mario Kart 8 Surprise Nintendo Direct

Nintendo has a knack for surprising fans with interesting videos, promotions, and games. It happened again today. As I ate my pre-work breakfast and scrolled through Twitter, I noticed Nintendo had posted a Mario Kart 8 Nintendo Direct. Not a time for a direct, but a direct itself. And it was fantastic. If you were not excited about the game yet, prepare to be sold.

Nintendo Reveals Plans for E3 2014

The days of three big companies spending thousands of dollars on three huge press conferences appears to be over. Nintendo's experiment with hosting a Nintendo Direct instead of a press conference last year must have worked, as the company has again opted out of holding a press conference in 2014. Instead, Nintendo has announced a number of other events that will happen during E3.

Holy Avatar vs Maidens of the Dead Review

If you've never played a third person RPG such as Diablo or Sacred, then perhaps Holy Avatar vs Maidens of the Dead is the game you ought to pick up. It's simple enough to grasp within a few minutes, but complicated enough to provide hours of fun. Don’t go in expecting a serious story with gripping plot changes. Instead, be ready to observe a very intelligent parody of what a traditional RPG really is.

Mario Golf World Tour Pre Launch Details

The Mario Golf World Tour demo has landed in Europe, and will be available in North America this Thursday.  Early indications from some of the major gaming news sites is that the newest Mario Golf is just another example of the top notch work that Nintendo is doing.  From my own experiences with the game, it is a worthy successor to Mario Golf Toadstool Tour, albeit one that was too long in the making. Over the last few weeks, further…
