Depending on the circumstances, I am fine with being wrong. Can’t always be right about things, but much to my shock it turns out Nintendo had two new Metroid games in the works. One, which is coming out soon (September 15th!), is a full reimagining of the Game Boy title Metroid 2 for the 3DS. … Continue reading Why I am excited for Metroid: Samus Returns
It also says something when I couldn't even find a solid price on a Gamestop site for the PS VR Headset. On Amazon's American site, new ones go for over $500 American. I just don't know anymore. (Images captured from CBC News website and EB Games Canada.)
Right, so. Nintendo had it’s big Switch reveal, and most of the Pietriots, myself included, were there to watch it. So while everyone is busy trying to downplay the positive reception to the reveal (ie selfish YouTubers, Game Jounalists, and those scared of motion controls still), I decided to list some of my favorite moments … Continue reading Matto’s Favorite Switch Presentation Moments
A close examination over the opposing outrage narratives concerning Fire Emblem.
- Will be a Nintendo system. - Will have Nintendo games. - Third parties will pledge support and then take it away after six months. - Promised Nintendo exclusive from western third party will go exclusive before launch and be delayed by six months. - Complaints about no games. - Complaints about no mature games … Continue reading Let’s Predict The Nintendo NX
As a follow-up to my previous E3 scan, here's some subtle marketing Nintendo spread around E3 2001, again, on the back of the E3 Show Daily magazines. Checkout the "interesting" front covers, too, and maybe you'll question how there could be any excitement for such an unappealing video game industry at the time (as presented … Continue reading Part of the Nintendo Difference: E3 2001
It's been a while since I've done a rant, which means a lot of rage has built up. I'm going to deliver it to you right now in the form of a reality check on the state of the gaming industry. It's gotten to such a bad state in the past few years I've just … Continue reading Gamers, stop being shit and buy a Wii U
Wait, you were actually expecting me to conduct a “professional” round table with the Pietriots? Look elsewhere on sites like IGN, Gamespot, Destructoid and Kotaku; discussing whether a Nintendo Direct was ‘worthless’ or ‘awesome’ is basically an easy way to get hits with their already shrunken down fanbases. Though some of the stupidity regarding Nintendo … Continue reading Nintendo Direct 4.17.2013 Roundtable
Good lord, I’m having déjà vu yet again! Three months into the life of the WiiU, we’re already seeing the cycle repeat itself as it did with the 3DS; sales start to stall, and third parties are no where to be seen. According to the NDP, WiiU versions of games are selling worse then the … Continue reading WiiU is Failing, but it isn’t Nintendo’s fault
Wii U has come out and has caused an interesting reaction with the gaming community. It's exploded onto the scene like a bird shitting on a park bench. Wii U isn't selling as well as Wii did at this very early stage, and after skeptical claims of "artificial shortages" people are now falling over themselves … Continue reading Wii U is bombing, and we’re OK with that
The past week has been an eye-opener. It seems Wii U has exposed a lot of people in the media who don't play games, with a string of lazy reviews copied from a press release or previous version of the game. It's a tough life playing games for a living, especially during a console launch … Continue reading How To Review A Videogame – 5 Easy Steps
Pretty hard according to this clown, Ryan Mccaffrey at IGN. Don't click it, they don't deserve the hits. It's a review of Ninja Gaiden 3 on Wii U, not just any review but the first one on the internet! "Razor’s Edge’s pure-action gameplay will certainly impress you. " TELL ME MORE! "In fact, it’s … Continue reading How hard is it to review a videogame?
