Super Smash Fight Pads by PDP Review

I hate aftermarket products. I always have. If what I'm gaming with doesn't have the official Nintendo seal, I'm not interested. That is how I've always been. I've always paid more for the official products; perhaps I'm stupid. After all, not every third party peripheral is garbage. I guess it is just a perception I have. When I heard and saw the Smash Bros Fight Pad from PDP games I had one though: those look cool, but they are probably just gimmicky, sub part GameCube knockoff controllers.

Do You Care about Nintendo 3DS Region Lock?

We all know that beautiful New 3DS and New 3DS XL will be coming to the west in 2015. We just weren't sure if it was going to be region locked, a practice which most hardware makers are passing on now. Well, not surprisingly, Nintendo has no plans to ditch region locking.

A Trip to Nintendo Of Canada and I Now Understand Amiibo

If you have no idea what Amiibo is or why you should be excited about it, you probably are not alone. I was in the same boat. Sure, I had seen all the videos and images, but I wasn't 100% sure what purpose they were going to serve.

I assumed the Mario Kart 8 packs would come in at 12-14$ each, but fortunately that isn't the case. What Nintendo hasn't done - until now that is - is do the number one thing gamers hate about DLC.

More Download Features coming to Nintendo Products

A few weeks ago I wrote an article about Nintendo's new download options. Most interesting was the ability (finally) to download games from a computer and push them to your Wii U. This was great, and frankly overdue. What wasn't announced at that time was a pre-download option for digital title. Apparently Nintendo is ready to deliver that as well.

Where Is GTA V’s Casino Content?

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.

Nintendo Embracing Demos with Upcoming Pokemon Titles

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.
