Why My Attitude on Mobile Games has Evolved

by David Lloyd - 8:29 am PDT

I still wish mobile games never existed, but I’ve found peace with them.

Ask someone who grew up with a retro console what they think of mobile games and chances are good you’ll receive a negative response. My own personal feeling has been a deep-seated hatred based on the assumption that mobile games are designed to feed an addiction with the intended goal of stealing... Read more...

Super Mario Maker 2's Online Multi-Failure

by Jordan Rudek - 12:00 pm PDT
Discuss in talkback!

Nintendo's shoddy online service continues to disappoint.

For years, Nintendo’s online offerings have been at times barebones, inferior, and baffling. But the saving grace was that they didn’t cost anything. There was no membership like Xbox Live Gold or PlayStation Plus required. When Nintendo finally announced a paid membership required for online... Read more...

The Quirkiness of Mario Maker Is Muted on Switch WiiUSwitch3DS

The absence of Skinny Mario and the Mystery Mushroom leave a gaping hole in Mario’s creative soul.

Super Mario Maker was a pure delight when it launched on Wii U in 2015. While it was ultimately too late to save the system, the game perfectly used the GamePad as players could make their own levels and check out a slew of creations online. The sublime experience of creating was dotted by so much... Read more...

There's No Precedent For Pokemon Sword And Shield Adding Its Missing Pokemon Switch

So the region that restricts immigration of Pokémon from other regions is based on England... too soon.

During the Treehouse Live on day 1 of E3, it was announced that the only Pokémon who can be imported into Sword and Shield via Pokémon Home (once it's live) will be Pokémon in the Galar regional Pokédex. This has upset a great many people and was widely regarded as a bad move. Series producer... Read more...

Though that doesn't mean Nintendo's E3 2019 will be devoid of delays.

This morning, Nintendo shined a light on their playable E3 2019 plans. If you're heading to Los Angeles for E3, you will be able to check out show floor demos of Pokémon Sword and Shield, Luigi's Mansion 3, The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, and more. Missing from that list of playable titles is a hotly anticipated 2019 game: Animal Crossing.

Three Reasons Why Ace Attorney Trilogy Rules Switch

As Ace Attorney Trilogy comes to Switch, we fondly remember why Phoenix Wright rocks.

The Phoenix Wright games have always been an enjoyable and bizarre style of visual novel that have overwhelmingly appealed to me despite generally ignoring the genre otherwise. When replaying the first three games, now out on Nintendo Switch in shiny HD style, I was trying to nail why these games... Read more...

Alex breaks down some of the more interesting games he saw at this year's PAX East.

This year marked my eighth PAX East with Nintendo World Report, and my third hosting a panel (this year’s was on Animal Crossing!), so it’s safe to say that this time around, I know what I’m getting into. PAX East is a place where you play cool indie games, stand in long lines, and people-watch all the people in cool cosplay.

Nicalis: 2019's April Fool WiiU

by James Jones - 8:42 pm PDT

Using April Fools Day to break a multi-year silence on a game people already paid for is outrageously disrespectful.

April Fools Day is a minefield of our own creation; brands throw out “ideas” into the world that are obviously farcical, selling us on the prospects of a vegan-friendly Doom sequel or a new Atari console in 2019. Social media just gave companies more tools to wear these jokes into dust. At their best, April Fools jokes can be a chance to laugh with your audience.
