Highlights from the Nintendo showcase – E3 2017

At 2am AEST time Nintendo ran an E3 spotlight video for upcoming games on the Nintendo Switch, and in my opinion they well and truly dominated other companies offerings this year. The Switch is already sitting pretty in my books, but it looks like the system just got that much better with a lot of great sounding titles on the horizon. Let’s take a look at them! Yoshi is getting a title Made ...[Read More]

ARMS review: Float like a butterfly, bend like an eel

Reviewed on Nintendo Switch, copy supplied by Nintendo.  If you pause and think about it for a while, ARMS is an objectively terrible name for anything apart from literal arms. That being said, ARMS is a pretty great game, and another feather in the cap for Nintendo’s Switch. The colourful fighter has a similar vibe to Overwatch, with a vague premise and a range of great characters that capt...[Read More]

Nintendo announce a 2DS XL

Despite the launch of the Switch it seems Nintendo aren’t done with their DS handheld systems. Much like the 3DS XL, the new 2DS XL will benefit from a larger screen… oh, and this time out hinges. It seems like a pretty great addition to the DS line, and it comes in some pretty awesome colour combos, with blue and black shown in the US trailer and white and gold surfacing on Nintendo&#...[Read More]

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe review: The blue shell of racers

Reviewed on Switch, copy supplied by Nintendo.  There’s something special about Mario Kart, it’s one of those rare series that transcends typical games by being so accessible it’s virtually a mandatory social experience. A perfect mix of skill, luck and chaos, it’s managed to stay a relevant Nintendo staple since 1992, and in my opinion, Mario Kart 8 stands out as the pinna...[Read More]

Created by Kirby developers Hal Laboratory, the series centres on a BoxBoy named Qbby (pronounced “Cubey”) creating duplicates of his box body to traverse a series of puzzles to reach the end of 100+ stage...[Read More]

How the Switch could make Nintendo great again (with some improvements)

Nintroduction The Nintendo Switch launch was a big success, which is surprising to me, but it has taught me that good marketing surely works, and the Wii U marketing surely didn’t… I have a Wii U so there was no need to get the Switch to play Zelda, but even if Nintendo ditched that version I wasn’t willing to buy a new console for the one game. Please note that my personal exper...[Read More]

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild review – A Triforce to be reckoned with

Reviewed on Nintendo Switch, copy supplied by Nintendo. After what seemed like an eternity of waiting and rolling delays, Zelda Wii U finally entered the world with a bang… and on an entirely new console. Of course the old working title for Breath of the Wild is kind of funny looking back, but at least the final product more than makes up for it. And hey, those that bought a Wii U in anticip...[Read More]

Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s differences on Switch compared to Wii U

Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a title that some people bought their Wii U’s specifically to play, even when their was no firm release date or official title. So when it was announced for the Nintendo Switch, then referred to as the NX, you could sense the wave of crushing disappointment from fans, like a thousand voices cried out in terror before suddenly taking their outrage to Twi...[Read More]

Questions we can answer on the Nintendo Switch

On the weekend we were fortunate enough to get our hands on the Nintendo Switch (you may have already read about how filthy it was). It was a pretty great evening, we spent three hours up close and personal with Nintendo’s new system, some new games, and the Joy-Con controllers. Whether you’re considering a preorder or just curious, I’m sure you have some questions about the syst...[Read More]
