Neal reflects on his 2009 10/10 review of Punch-Out!!

In May 2009, I reviewed Punch-Out!! on Wii and gave it a 10/10. My logic at the time was that I had an absolute blast with the game and I couldn't think of a way anyone could make a better Punch-Out!! game. For years, that always made sense to me.

Going back and playing Punch-Out!! on Wii for... Read more...

Welcome to My Phantasy Zone: Why a 3D Phantasy Star Would Rule 3DS

Here's why Phantasy Star would be an incredible addition to Sega's 3D Classics line.

The Sega 3D Classics line has been an absolutely fantastic addition to the 3DS library. If you are unfamiliar with the series, essentially Sega has tasked port kings M2 (whom you may know from their work on the Virtual Consoles and the WiiWare “ReBirth” series) with bringing various arcade and...

No standard model and no AC adapter? Why, Nintendo? Why?!

Just last week, the Nintendo finally confirmed what those of us in North America have been waiting on for quite some time: the New Nintendo 3DS is coming on February 13. Well, actually, that’s not entirely true, as those of us in United States and Canada will only have the option of purchasing the XL model of the handheld. Meanwhile, every other territory is getting both the standard model in addition to the extra-large option.

The Missing Nintendo Games on 3DS

Detective Alex is on the case to ask: Why aren't these games on 3DS yet?

We’re almost four years into the system’s life, and most major Nintendo franchises have shown up on 3DS. We have two Pokémon games, two Mario games, three Zelda games (counting the remakes), soon-to-be two Fire Emblem games, Animal Crossing, Kid Icarus, and more. Even otherwise console-exclusive games like Luigi’s Mansion, Paper Mario, and Super Smash Bros. have found a handheld home in 3DS. So the question remains: what’s left?

This Direct had a new Fire Emblem and more Amiibo junk than you can shake a stick at.

Well, that was certainly a fun Nintendo Direct. The North American version was 45 minutes of consistent news, reveals, and announcements that made the past month or so of relative silence from Nintendo almost worth it. At this point, we’ve got a new handheld revision out in less than a month, in addition to several Wii U and 3DS games debuting before the end of March. Let’s round up who were the winners and losers of this Nintendo Direct.

The brave and the bold...and Metroid.

To the surprise of no one and excitement of everyone, a new Nintendo Direct is happening this Wednesday morning, January 14. Some things are pretty much a lock – we’re going to get Majora’s Mask 3D and we’re going to get New 3DS talk for sure. But what about the rest of the announcements? That’s where I come in.

When Is the New 3DS Coming to America? 3DS

The handheld revision could be coming stateside soon, along with Majora's Mask 3D.

With the New 3DS Ambassador Edition announced for Europe, the only region that hasn't mentioned Nintendo's new handheld revision is North America. So, when exactly is the New 3DS coming out there?

Since we heard the New 3DS wouldn’t hit North America until 2015, my feelings have always been... Read more...

Breaking the Curse: Readying to Clay Kirby’s Next Adorable Adventure WiiWiiU3DSDS

Despite not adoring Canvas Curse, Neal is still jazzed for Kirby and the Rainbow Curse.

I have a confession to make. I was never really that into Kirby: Canvas Curse. I know; it's weird. This is the dude who unabashedly adores Kirby's Epic Yarn. The same guy who considers Kirby Triple Deluxe to be one of the best 3DS platformers. This is the person who has replayed Kirby 64 like at least... Read more...
