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]

Darksiders remaster name is PUN-ishable by death

The universe must be spying on me, because it was only yesterday that I commented on how cringe-worthy a pun Hilary Clinton made about Pokémon GO was and now news of this pundamental failure falls right into my lap. I know the universe isn’t known for pulling its pun-ches, but if this is my fault, then to everyone I say: I’m sorry. I’m so, so sorry. So, Nordic Games have announce...[Read More]

Nintendo NX won’t be digital-only says GameStop CEO

Following the discovery of a Nintendo patent for a disc drive-less console last year, and a survey in this past January, rumours were flying that the company’s upcoming NX console would be going digital-only. Well, not according to US retailer GameStop’s CEO, speaking in an investor earnings call at the end of May. During the call, transcribed by Yahoo and reported by GamingBolt, GameS...[Read More]

Nintendo NX launches March 2017, new Zelda pushed to next year

Nintendo’s new console system, so far referred to as the Nintendo NX, will launch worldwide in March 2017 according to the company’s latest financial release. Details on the new system have been scarce, with only reports of it being some kind of portable/home console hybrid and a survey hinting at potential features to go on, and sadly it looks like we won’t be learning any more ...[Read More]

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD review

Copy supplied by publisher. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is the latest Zelda classic to be given the HD treatment, this time for Wii U. Perhaps the most surprising aspect of this release is the fact Twilight Princess is turning 10 this year… that certainly went by fast. The game itself  hasn’t changed much from the original Wii/GameCube version, yet there are enough bells and...[Read More]

Fast Racing Neo review

– Stefan Bradley Reviewed on: Wii U Cue the comparisons to Nintendo’s F-Zero franchise, as well as Sony’s WipEout. Like those two series, Fast Racing Neo is all about futuristic vehicles racing at extreme speeds to a soundtrack fusing rock and electronic music. F-Zero hasn’t seen a new game since F-Zero Climax on the GBA, but most of us fondly remember F-Zero GX as the peak...[Read More]

Xmas ideas for your gaming family/friends

  So, that whole Christmas thing is next week. Came up quickly didn’t it? While I’d like to think we’d all be super organised and gotten all our gifts wrapped and ready to go so we can just sit back and enjoy the “holiday season”, the introduction of late trading hours (sometimes never even closing) in the lead up to Christmas suggests otherwise. But which came f...[Read More]

News out of the Nintendo Direct

  Rather than be big and flashy like the live stage shows of Playstation and Xbox, Nintendo’s “Nintendo Direct” video presentations opt to be much more, well, direct. True, they occasionally feature some weird theatrics, but more often then not the Nintendo Directs just sit down, and show you what they have. The result is a cavalcade of information, some news is big, others ...[Read More]

Nintendo NX to be a WiiU/3DS hybrid?

-Tom Heath Since its launch in 2012, I would argue that the Wii U has had an image problem. Given the console’s resemblance to its predecessor, both in appearance and name, there are those who think “Wii U” is the name of the tablet-style controller, and presume it is an accessory for the original Wii from 2006. The new games made for the Wii U, more specifically the first-party ...[Read More]

Splatoon just keeps getting better

– Stefan Bradley Splatoon has been out for months now, but Nintendo’s online multiplayer shooter has become a service rather than a simple standalone release, with regular free updates since the game’s launch in May, so yes, I am relevant. Thanks. It’s still amazing to me and others that Nintendo not only released an online multiplayer focused title, but a shooter of all things. Also it’s a ...[Read More]
