In celebration of Thanksgiving, Zack takes a look at all the stuff we should be thankful for this year in Nintendo.

Thanksgiving is a day Americans visit with their families and celebrate all the special things they are thankful for while stuffing their gullets with the suffering of turkeys across the nation. In honor of this national tradition, I thought I would share... Read more...

Discuss in talkback!

The Legend of Zelda has the best fans. And that's a fact!

At New York Comic Con 2013 I had the pleasure of going to The Legend of Zelda: Link Between Worlds panel. It was a fantastic experience to say the least. 

During the whole con I was pretty under the weather and was popping pills to keep me awake and alive. Luckily, I had two pills left when... Read more...

It's A Secret to Everybody: Game Surprises in the Information Age

Can we still be surprised by games in the internet era? Actually, for that matter, do we need to be?

Remember when you were younger and every video game was a surprise? In the modern day, there's nothing quite like those feelings of discovery and wonderment when you picked out a game based on its box art and eventually came to cherish it as one of your favorites. How we share and collect information just doesn't allow for it any more. But would you really want things to go back to the old ways? Can you honestly say that ignorance is bliss?

They ruined you, Mario.

Well, let's not beat around the bush. Nintendo promised a Nintendo Direct today and we sure got one. There were plenty of okay announcements, a couple of great ones, one really awful one, and plenty in-between. Let's take the next few minutes to talk about what I personally deem to be the good, the bad, and the ugly of this presentation (there were other announcements besides these, but those belong in a special “indifferent” category):

It's time to talk about some serious stuff.  

As I looked through my Google Alerts for Pokémon over the past couple of weeks, I’ve stumbled upon quite a few interesting articles. Some of them discussed how the games were bringing together religious groups. Others discussed what it could teach players both young and old. Some articles even... Read more...

Rash Predictions for the November 13 Nintendo Direct 3DSWiiU

Release dates, a new Smash Bros. character, and a surprise or two. Not exactly going out on a limb here.

A new Nintendo Direct is coming in less than 24 hours, and the focus will be on 2014. Sounds exciting, huh? I think it does. But just what could be a part of the show tomorrow? (Note: I know the Direct says "previously announced Nintendo 3DS software." I stand by every prediction.)

Let's get the... Read more...

We're playing Super Mario 3D World and The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. Our first impressions await.

As of now, I've played about an hour or two of Nintendo's premier holiday 2013 games on Wii U and 3DS. My feelings on both Super Mario 3D World and The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds are way more positive than I ever would have expected when both were announced earlier this year. Without even... Read more...
