Why Neal is psyched to get the first Ace Attorney games on his 3DS this December.

The Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy is coming to 3DS on December 9 and despite the fact that I've played two of the three games already, I'm actually incredibly excited for this collection to come out.

One barrier for the Phoenix Wright series that I've discovered over the years is that sometimes... Read more...

Does Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Have Enough Content? WiiU3DS

With the Wii U version on the way, does the first handheld Smash Bros. have enough content to stay relevant?

Before writing this, I wasn’t sure how to approach the topic, or what to base the measure of “enough” on. Should I make my evaluation based on the Wii U version, on the series as a whole, or solely the 3DS version without giving consideration to the rest of the series? For the sake of fairness, I’m going to attempt to do all three.

Bold colors and dope soundtrack and free movement, oh my!

The demo for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire is now available in most territories and finally, yes, I have played it. The demo isn’t that crazy because it just features a bit of exploration and a handful of battles, but I still managed to glean some observations from our first taste of the upcoming Pokémon experience. Here are the five things that stuck out the most.

Other karts that should appear in the upcoming DLC packs.

With the recent reveal of the Master Cycle, Link’s decked out horse bike, I began thinking of other karts/bikes that should make their way over to race with Mario and friends in the latest iteration of Mario Kart. The idea that some of Nintendo’s biggest franchises could share the screen in a... Read more...

On Disagreement and Vilification

Those for and against GamerGate have created a tumultuous environment that encourages antagonism. It needs to stop.

My 2-year-old daughter is lying on her stomach, feet kicking gently back and forth in the air, watching Mario Kart 8 replays on the Wii U GamePad. Each time Mario drives over a ramp and deploys his glider, she excitedly yells “Mario fly!” and juts her hand out into the air. As she narrates Mario’s... Read more...

Last weekend, Nintendo hosted a fascinating Super Smash Bros. for 3DS tourney in New York City.

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of watching a small-scale version of The Wizard live in person. Nintendo hosted a Super Smash Bros. for 3DS tournament at Nintendo World Store in New York City. It was totally radical.

For those who didn't keep up with it, here are the basics. Nintendo hosted... Read more...

Link’s in Mario Kart. All bets are off. What else could happen?

I think it's safe to say that Nintendo is now swimming in the DLC pool. With Mario Kart 8 and Hyrule Warriors' ambitious post-release content plans, we now truly have Nintendo season passes. So, where do we go from here?

Here are some ideas that I think would be cool and (maybe) possible for recent or upcoming Nintendo games. Let us know what you think in the Talkback thread below.

10 Questions and Observations About the Duck Hunt Duo in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U WiiU3DS

by Alex Culafi - 5:00 pm EDT

I don't even know if I like playing as them but I can't stop playing as them.

Every time I play as the extremely fascinating Duck Hunt duo, I learn another quirk about the character, have one new question, or gain a new observation. In lieu of proper prose with a main point, I figured it would make more sense to cut to the chase and point out some of the numerous things I’ve wondered or noticed about these two.

Setting the Odds on Hyrule Warriors' DLC Characters WiiUWiiGC

Check in with the bookie to see what the odds are that Tingle shows up in the Majora's Mask pack.

So we've heard about the upcoming Hyrule Warriors DLC that will add new characters, weapons, adventure maps, and more. We've even heard about one of the weapons: Epona. Yes, one of the first new weapons being added to the Zelda take on Dynasty Warriors is a damn horse. This furthers my theory of how Hyrule Warriors is so dumb and that's awesome.
