Our original reviewer takes a look at Code Name: S.T.E.A.M.’s new update.

The new update that makes enemy turns faster in Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. has been available for a while and since then, our original reviewer Bryan Rose has gone back to the game to see if his opinion has changed at all. Also see below for the thoughts of Neal Ronaghan, someone who didn’t touch the game until post-update.

Five Not-So-Obvious Choices for Star Wars Characters in a Disney Infinity Game

by Zack Kaplan - 5:32 pm PDT
Discuss in talkback!

Why play as Luke when you can play as Luuke?

When Star Wars is a topic of discussion, I think it is safe to say that I am the most vocal fan on the staff of Nintendo World Report. Since Disney owns Star Wars, it’s safe to assume that we’ll be seeing characters from a Galaxy Far, Far Away in Disney’s flagship toys-to-life game. While I... Read more...

StreetPass Premium Is A Solution Looking For A Problem 3DS

Not recommended, even for Kairon.

Nintendo has done a good job so far with providing value with their downloadable expansions for software. The Mario Kart and Hyrule Warriors DLC packs are filled with good content (depending on your threshold for Tingle and Baby Park). Then there's the recent update for the StreetPass Mii Plaza, which...

Wouldn't you like to give these five games another try?

Nintendo 64 games have finally arrived on the Wii U Virtual Console! Sure, I could have played the many N64 games that were released on the Wii Virtual Console, but then I’d be missing out on cool features like Resume Points. The modern Wii U Virtual Console experience is much more preferred these... Read more...

Frustrations Of A New Fire Emblem Fan 3DSWiiU

Between impossible to obtain merchandise and doing a bad Pokémon impression, Fire Emblem may be cut off at its peak.

Among the Fire Emblem intelligentsia, I’m probably considered one of the casuals. Although I loved Fire Emblem Awakening, I turned off permanent death and wouldn’t touch Lunatic+ with a 39 ½ foot pole. Apparently, a lot of people agreed with me, since Awakening marked the highest sales ever for the franchise that was at risk of going the way of Intelligent Systems’ other strategy series Advance Wars before.

Guitar Hero: The Only Music Game Option on Wii U WiiUWii

No Rock Band is unfortunate, but the Wii U version of Guitar Hero Live should be just fine.

If you have any interest in the budding music game renaissance going on in 2015 with Rock Band 4 and Guitar Hero Live, you only have one option on Wii U. With no Rock Band 4 on the way, Guitar Hero Live is the only rhythm game heading to Nintendo’s system this fall. At this early stage, we don’t... Read more...

What Happened to the Wii U GamePad’s Potential? WiiU

Neal investigates why Wii U games rarely seem to focus on the system’s exclusive features.

In the summer of 2012, I remember feeling excited about the Wii U, giddily anticipating Nintendo’s next console. After experiencing Nintendo Land, Pikmin 3, ZombiU, and much more at various pre-launch events, the wait for November was agonizing. The GamePad, to me, was a new controller filled with...

Should You Buy Xenoblade Chronicles 3D? 3DS

Use our fancy questionnaire and figure out if it is indeed Reyn time for you and yours.

Today, Xenoblade Chronicles 3D launches on New 3DS in North America. This is the widest release of anything Xenoblade in America yet, as the Wii release and the Shulk Amiibo were both exclusive to GameStop. You might not be fully aware of what Xenoblade is and why you (yes, you) might want to buy it.

Pokemon Rumble World Is Free-to-Play Done Right 3DS

by Neal Ronaghan - 4:48 am PDT
Total comments: 4

Nintendo’s second attempt at free-to-play Pokémon captures the fun of collecting them all without bleeding you dry.

Unlike its free-to-play Pokémon progenitor Pokémon Shuffle, Pokémon Rumble World, out now for free on the 3DS eShop, doesn’t feel as restricted by its microtransaction hooks. Rumble World has way more to do and is a much fuller game, often feeling like a simplified sequel to the 2011 3DS game... Read more...

Our very own King Nintendo Fanboy details his personal Amiibo journey and how Nintendo is doing nothing to make it better.

If you don’t know me, let me just say I’ve been a super, insane Nintendo fan for nearly my entire life. I became hooked when I played a Nintendo Entertainment System, and was immediately enamored by a life full of Nintendo games, toys, and media. Over the years, it has been a strong constant in...
