Seems like Nintendo is doing just fine...

I have no problem admitting that I root for Nintendo. I would hate to think what the industry would sink into if Nintendo were not there as a constant reminder that games can be fun and bright and happy and imaginative. Having said that, with all the talk around here I have been worrying about Ninte...

Instant Fun

I will admit that this is why I bought the Wii U on its release date, because I know that if there is still a company out there that understands this, it's Nintendo.

Controllers: Most comfortable and least comfortable?

Mine would be a tie between the GameCube controller and the Jaguar controller. Aside from the numeric pad, I really like how the Jaguar controller feels in my hands. It reminds me of the Wii U tablet, actually...

For Reviews and Purists: Where does Emulation Begin?

I have completely transitioned to emulating most games on my Ouya, and playing them with a PS3 Controller. At this point I really feel like worrying about ways that a good emulator might change a game is sort of a grasping-at-straws way of self-justifying our game collections to ourselves. If there ...

Wii U's Overemphasis on 2d gaming

[QUOTE=Jon]Rev, so 2d platformers weren't cool from the N64 to the Wii? ROFL. [/QUOTE]<br /><br />THIS makes you ROFL?  <br /><br />Simple minds...<br /><br />And actually, no, they weren't "cool".  At least to the general game buying public.  It took a long time for people to re...

2014/6/10: Wii U: Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, The, Mario Kart 8

For some reason I am really annoyed by the "Yawn" used when describing the inclusion of older tracks, and it's for a number of reasons. First, Mario Kart is unlike any other racer with its memorable tracks that are as much a part of the game as anything else. These aren't just run-of-the-mill racetr...

The New Virtual Reality - empty hype?

Yes, I can see how you would come to that conclusion from one stinking video.  Or...... OR..... you could look at all the other videos out there, like the one of the PS4 version of this machine which uses... (gasp) a controller!!!  There is your answer!  Thread over!  I think the...

Mario Kart 8's Sales Figures

For some reason I have this built-in assumption that it takes less for Nintendo to be successful than it does other companies.  I'm not sure why.  Maybe its because the Gamecube always seemed like a loss but ended up at least doing something for them, or maybe because I read that even at i...

Could Nintendo offer a Wii U for $200 without a tablet controller?

I really like the tablet.  For about the first hour my hands felt too far apart, mostly because of what I was used too.  But now my hands and arms are in the most relaxing position when playing the Wii U compared to my other consoles, and I prefer it.  <br /><br />I do, however, wish ...
