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
A fellow user by the name of Travis Touchdown on VG Facts recently brought to my attention and others this fan comic. Besides the not-so-obvious fact this is a Metroid comic strip, that is Samus with a punchline that makes absolutely no sense, but the comment she makes Samus say at the end is actually … Continue reading Short-Sighted Ignorance
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
Did you fall for it twice? You didn’t? Good, glad to hear that. Heard that North American version wasn’t that good, but the hell would I know? As I said before in the other one I did as a joke, wondering whether a Nintendo Direct was good or bad is an easy way to get … Continue reading Nintendo Direct 5.17.2013 Roundtable
This scan is from the back of E3 Show Daily: Day 3 from E3 2000. It's not a product ad, but a departing statement from Hiroshi Yamauchi just before he retired (maybe). Almost 13 years later (that's more than TWO Wii generations duct-taped together), does it still apply today? ... a little unbelievable in today's … Continue reading A Message From Nintendo: Gotta Have Game
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
In case you haven’t heard the news yet, all that free advertising Nintendo gave to Rayman Legends turned out to be absolutely worthless on Nintendo’s part: Rayman Legends is no longer a WiiU exclusive and it’s being put multiplatform, and as such it making gaming journalists, analysts and haters hard in the pants. The reasons … Continue reading In Today’s News, UbiSoft just screwed over Rayman Legends
Wii U strikes back! Wii U behind the next-gen curve! Sony waiting for Microsoft to make the first move! 3DS dominating Japan! Will the Vita make a comeback? How does that read to you? To me it sounds like sports commentary. The winner goes to the next round and the loser is knocked out as … Continue reading Videogame Warfare – Nobody Wins
The Wii Remote & Nunchuk was last generation's innovation in violence - still strong today, still better than the competition. This was the method of controlling the last true console Resident Evil experience the world would know: The Umbrella Chronicles. For the previous console cycle, there's a seldom-stated lesson Capcom briefly learned (see RE4:Wii) then … Continue reading Hey U – Give Me Real Controls
It has been quite a wonderful couple of days. Not only did Nintendo have its WiiU conference in North America and two Nintendo Directs for Japan and one for Europe, but this is quite possibly the BEST console preview I’ve seen from them in years. There was no gaming media bias, no shoddy camcorder work, … Continue reading I’m embarrassed to be a gamer now.
Now who is this cool looking bald guy smiling? Why this is Hideki Kamiya, a game director at Platinum Games. He’s directing Project P-100 for Nintendo and it looks super swell, one of my most anticipated WiiU games. However. You fucking twats on Twitter don’t like the fact Hideki Kamiya’s next project is being published … Continue reading Hideki Kamiya is Cool. You are not.
A few months ago, expert internet hackers discovered a “lost” Iwata Asks interview between Nintendo president Satoru Iwata and gaming industry analyst Michael Pachter. After braving multiple contract loopholes, shark tanks and Jim Sterling’s rolls of fat, I’ve managed to get a hold of this insightful interview. Enjoy! IWATA: Today I will be interviewing Michael … Continue reading Iwata Asks: Michael Pachter – The Lost Interview
