After playing Ultimate NES Remix, Alex reviews the young series and offers his thoughts for the future.

Ultimate NES Remix is a unique package because it allows us to see the very best of what a series has to offer – a type of compilation usually exclusive to television and music. It includes challenges and remixes of the 16 most notable NES games out of 28 represented in the two NES Remix games on... Read more...

How I Got Sucked into Amiibos

It's all about supply and demand.

I had zero interest in Amiibo from the start, I swear.

I didn’t want to get sucked into the world of Amiibo, but somehow I did. When I first saw them at E3 2014, I didn’t have much interest. I could understand why Nintendo went in that direction, though. After all, the Skylanders toys have... Read more...

That footage from The Game Awards didn't even touch on some questions. Will there be motion controls? Where does it fit in the timeline?

Since the gameplay video of The Legend of Zelda Wii U was released, the reality and potential of the upcoming game has been racing through my mind. You can check out the numerous videos I've been a part of for examples of this obsession with a smidgen of the new footage released recently.

That Japenese commercial looks mighty fishy!

If you go on NeoGAF, /v/, or pretty much any online community centered around video games, there’s a decent chance you’ve seen this commercial making the rounds, posted a few days ago on Nintendo’s Japanese YouTube channel:

Around the 0:07 mark, pause and look at the man’s hands. You will see this image:

It's Time to Talk About 3DS Sales 3DS

Also, bonus speculation about the New 3DS launch in North America and Europe.

With the release of sales data from November 2014, we now know that the Wii U sold around 250,000 units during the month, up a little bit from 2013, and the Super Smash Bros. games and Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire have combined for a little less than 4 million unit sales so far. Wii U software... Read more...

Excitement for a Gentler Majora’s Mask on 3DS 3DS

Could Majora’s Mask 3D make the divisive Nintendo 64 gem more appealing to everyone?

I've been rooting for a Majora's Mask remake on 3DS since Ocarina of Time came out. My reasoning might be different than a lot of other people's, though because I wouldn't count myself as a fan of Majora's Mask. Sure, I love the music and the concept, but I've never gotten more than two dungeons through... Read more...

The Disappointing Scarcity of Amiibo WiiU

Fear and loathing in Nintendo Land.

Panic set in as the second wave of Amiibo approached. All it took was one little quote from Nintendo to finally make me doubt the likelihood of getting all the Amiibo by just going to retail stores and not pre-ordering.

"We will aim for certain amiibo to always be available. These will be for... Read more...

Thoughts on the Lack of Character Customization in Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire 3DS

by Becky Hollada - 10:08 am PST

Becky misses a cool feature introduced in Pokémon X and Y.

Now Pokémon X and Y has its fans and its critics, but arguably one of the best new features in the game was the ability for players to customize their own trainer. At first, I didn’t know what to think of it since my character’s appearance doesn’t make even the top fifty most important things... Read more...

Where are my trumpets?

As an addendum to my other article about why Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are both great and not-so-great Pokémon games, I’ve decided to specify six things that I think could have made the 3DS remakes even better.

Smash Bros' Humble Australian Launch

Discuss in talkback!

Not quite a graveyard Smash, but certainly not a Poké-Party.

Only a week has gone by since Australia saw the release of the New 3DS along with Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, and next up is the season's other most anticipated Nintendo release: Super Smash Bros. For Wii U. Since I missed the last launch, nothing could stop me from making this one! So off I went to the Nintendo Experience in Melbourne, the usual hangout for events like this.
