Putting a Stop to Dr. Mario World's Degree Mills: This Article Is a Cry for Help Mobi

This is no longer a joke, lives are on the line. Mine.

Dr. Mario World is the worst kind of mobile game. No, I don't mean a mobile game with spinners, gauges, and loot boxes. These are moral inadequacies that have their own inquisitors and shall not peddle my expertise where it is not needed. It is also true that Dr. Mario World is now dealing in medical... Read more...

What makes the third Zelda game a perfect bridge between old and new?

In terms of titles, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past is an all-timer. It alludes to time travel in a delicious pun on its plucky protagonist, but what’s even better than its supremely effective title is the game behind it. The Super Nintendo would be home to many quintessential entries, from... Read more...

Following up a disappointing game in the final days of the Wii U was a tough job but somebody had to do it.

Paper Mario: The Origami King is on its way to Nintendo Switch soon, and with all the news swirling around about Mario and his pop-up adventures, I’ve reflected on my own experiences with the 20-year-old franchise. I actually started collecting these thoughts before Origami King was announced, as... Read more...

The Metroid Gag in Paper Mario: The Origami King's Trailer Is Likely Just a Gag DSWii3DSWiiUSwitch

Discuss in talkback!

Nintendo did not tease the release of Metroid Prime 4 in 2020 or reveal plans about a new 2D Metroid.

At the end of the Paper Mario: The Origami King reveal trailer - after the release date was revealed and the excitement seemed over - there is a video stinger showing Paper Mario wearing a papier-mâché Samus Aran helmet, running around miming firing a gun. "Huh. There's something you don't see every day," says Olivia, Mario's new origami companion. "He certainly looks intimidating! Is he...battling something?"

What makes the Blue Bomber’s second outing an instant classic?

Minutes before the end of my 35th year of existence, I start to grow nostalgic and contemplative, as one does in their thirties. Of all topics to land on during these moments of reflection, I settle on one of my most cherished childhood games, Mega Man 2, an unforgettable masterclass in action platforming.... Read more...

Sometimes you just need an escape.

It’s March 1st 2020. As I’m sitting behind my computer, it finally hits me. I have finished my time as a student. What started back in 2014 with my aspirations to become a filmmaker has resulted in the completion of my bachelor’s degree in film and media and a master’s degree in journalism and research. I am at this very point academically and practically certified to create media. There is one slight problem. I am unemployed.

Why Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a Failure to the Zelda Franchise SwitchWiiU

The truth hurts, but someone has to come out and say it.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is one of the most critically acclaimed games of this generation. However, the title exudes flaws and leaves so much to be desired from a game in the Zelda series. If you’ve been a fan of the site for some time, you probably know my feelings on Breath of the Wild, but for its third anniversary I thought it was time to finally sit down and explain my full list of problems.

First obligatory year pun: check.

As we begin a new decade, there’s still a lot of questions about what the Switch will see this year from Nintendo specifically. We have Q1 release dates and a few games slated for 2020, but mostly there’s questions about whether certain games will have a chance to land this year. You know which ones they are.
