Remember that time Nintendo launched a popular product and then immediately ceased production?

Nintendo has ceased production of the incredibly hard to find NES Classic, and I can't stop laughing. I should be mad at a company that made it very difficult to find a product that I absolutely wanted, but instead I'm so beyond incredulous that I can't be mad. Nintendo has made possibly the most Nintendo-like move of all time in ceasing production of probably its best-received product since the original Wii.

Or just play one of the seven other versions you already have?

When Minecraft launches on Wii U on December 17th, it will serve as something of a victory lap for Mojang, its parent company Microsoft, and 4J Studios who have handled the console ports for the iconic exploration/crafting/digging/creating simulator.

How does the GameCube crown jewel hold up?

I get the itch a few times a year; you know the one.

How can this game really be worth so little? Well, the obvious answer... Read more...

New 3DS, It Can't Be Worse than the Old 3DS 3DS

I’ve been waiting for the day.

The 3DS is garbage. Okay, maybe that's a bit strong, but hear me out: it has some of the best Nintendo games of the past 10 years in The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and Super Mario 3D Land. It is the home of the first fully mature digital storefront for Nintendo’s games, and the first... Read more...

All of the Wii U Critics Are Right (and I Don't Care) WiiU

Dear enthusiast media: games trump features.

I consider myself to be a rational person. When I start to get the feeling that I’m surrounded by fanboys, I lash out.
