Polygon's Nintendo Nightmare

35d ago ... Let me start off by saying that Mr. Kuchera's views are probably not representative of the entirety of Polygon. I always find that gamers tend to associate one person's review or statement with the entirity of the site/company, and this isn't usually the case. That said, I find his statements to be an additional footnote to the laughable incompetency that Polygon trails. The article in quest...

Mario Kart 8 Officially Justifies the Wii U's Graphical Prowess

59d ago ... Say what you want about the Wii U. Whine and complain as much as you'd like about how the system isn't at the same 'power-level' as the PS4 or XBOX One. One thing is for sure, though: Mario Kart 8 is one damn-fine looking game. It's been a little less than a year from since the public got a chance to first see the title in action. It's been a little over a year from since Nintendo showed...

Could Pac-Man be in MK8&SSB4?

69d ago ... I've heard both sides of this "argument", as to reasons Pac-Man should and shouldn't be in either of these upcoming titles from Nintendo- So I figured I would throw my "2-cents" into the ring. I for one am a fan of the idea of Pac-Man being in both titles. Why? Well, for starters-one of my favorite Mario Kart games was the arcade game that Namco released that not only included Pac-Man in its ro...

Is Nintendo’s Current 2014 Line-Up Enough to Save the Wii U?

81d ago ... This is my first post, i am so nervous :p , hope you enjoy it. Over a year after its launch, the Wii U continues to struggle in the console marketplace despite having a rather large catalog of games currently available. Last year, Nintendo bet their hopes on a series of holiday titles – Pikmin 3, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, The Wonderful 101, Wii Party U, and Super Mario 3D World...

Why Mario Kart 8's Lack of Voice Chat Does and Does Not Matter

94d ago ... So Mario Kart 8 has no voice chat feature. Let me be the first to say that this kind of sucks for Wii U players (and technically for me when I get the thing in the future). A lot of people seem pretty upset by this news, and rightfully so. Some people really want to be able to talk to the people they are playing with and that's a perfectly fine criticism. Although, I do feel like some of the cr...

Wii U can succeed without muti-platform 3rd party support

114d ago ... Truth be told, Wii U doesn't need mainstream 3rd party games like Grand Theft Auto or the latest Need for Speed to be successful. The Wii U is getting its own exclusives, however they also need exclusive 3rd Party Franchises in which fans can become familiar with. Nintendo has the resources to establish 5 franchises if they were to choose to in my opinion. If I had control over Nintendo right n...

10 Reasons why the Wii U Wins!!!

119d ago ... I am not going to write a "love" letter about Nintendo(though admittedly I do love Nintendo) and I am not going to try and be a "shield" for all the negative outlooks on the Wii U. What I am going to do is simply compile a list of all the strengths and positive things that I (emphasis on the I) see and have found as a Wii U owner... 1. Backwards compatibility-I can't stress the awesomeness...

Nintendo Should Revive the Gamecube Controller with Smash Bros Wii U

163d ago ... Super Smash Bros Wii U and Mario Kart 8 are the two premier titles Nintendo is set to launch on the Wii U later this year. In case you haven't heard, the Wii U isn't exactly selling all that well. Nintendo was forced to cut their sales estimates by more than 6 million for the system. Many have written articles with recommendations for "saving Nintendo" and "turning around the Wii U," but I'd...

Why Sony won next gen already (Part 2)

304d ago ... So 5 months passed since my last blog about this topic http://n4g.com/user/blogpost/zod18/521570 and I think it's a good time to recap it with everything that happened since then. Last time, I wrote about all three but this time I'm leaving Nintendo out since the next gen launch is just around the corner and Nintendo is not really ready to compete with Xbox One and PS4 yet. (I might touch...

Super Smash Bros Wii U and 3DS with no Subspace Emissary? Really Nintendo?

343d ago ... Nintendo has revealed that SSB4 on both the Wii U and 3DS will not feature the SSE. They've said it's because clips were watched online, but I think I know the actual reason. It's because Nintendo finds it too hard to make HD CGI HD cutscenes. They're so use to making anemic games on anemic hardware. Now I'm a Nintendo fan mind you. But I have to say this. Nintendo needs to get with the time...

The Nintendo Experience at Best Buy

390d ago ... So with E3 finally having been wrapped up, I headed off to my local Best Buy to try out some of the new E3 demos that were there. I was able to show up on the dot of the starting time of the event and by then there was already a pretty lengthy line. Thankfully there was a sign in sheet, so the demos were not simply "first come, first serve." Most of the players were into the new Mario games, Su...

My Review of Nintendo's "E3 Nintendo Direct 2013"

393d ago ... Nintendo made a startling decision this year; They would not be holding a major press conference at E3 2013. This struck many gamers, especially Nintendo-lovers, straight in the gut. "How could they even think about ditching E3? Their home system is in trouble! They should be coming out with guns blazing and bombs dropping!" - That - more than likely, was the thought of the many who shook th...

Nintendo Direct and E3

437d ago ... If there's one thing Nintendo defenders have been stating for the past couple of months more than anything from what I've seen (myself included at times), it's for those clamoring for more Wii U software to hold their tongues until after E3. And in one way or another, we have been right about that. Nintendo has opted to wait until E3 to give us true reveals on several games that were merely ann...

A simple reason why I'm backing the Vita, not the 3DS

475d ago ... Right off the bat, let me point out that I currently own both a 3DS and a Vita, with a healthy bundle of games for the both of them. So, I'm not trying to stir up hate against a handheld that I don't own. Rather, I wanted to take the time to look ahead at the future of the 3DS and the Vita, and why I think one will end up with more developer support compared to the other. I love handhelds, more...

Mario's Legacy and Where the Plumber Should Head Next

503d ago ... Video games have come a long way since Ralph Baer first created Pong. The industry has given us as gamers beautiful, graphical, artistic games that have taken our breath away. They have woven incredible stories and powerful emotions into a game. They have also made game that started as simplistic 8-bit arcade games, and re-invented them in new innovative ways. One of the greatest examples of...

Nintendo is heading for a crash

586d ago ... It all started with the final years of the Wii. I like the Wii. Heck, I LOVE the Wii, even including those "casual" motion-control games like Wii Sports. It's a fun system with a unique set of games. However, I began to have my doubts about 2 years ago when Super Mario Galaxy 2 launched. See, I like the SMG games. I do. They're great. However, it didn't make much sense to me: why would Nintendo...

I regret buying a 3DS…

1008d ago ... So i bought my 3DS only days after it’s release hoping to jump into the amazing world of Mario and his family in 3D, but soon enough i had my dreams crushed, i bought the device along with Street Fighter 4 and although i’m not a big fan of fighting games and as i never played any previous parts of the series before i had to go with it because it was the only decent launch title and it was very...

Am I regretting my 3DS purchase?

1101d ago ... In the past, I sold my DS for the sole reason that I wasn't getting much use out of it, only to ever repurchase one - a second hand model saying that - because it seems that I can not resist the lure of Pokemon games and Mario Kart. So on comes along the Nintendo 3DS and I purchase it thinking that I have myself sorted. The launch line-up was not very good admittedly; however, I was hoping t...

E3 2011 Nintendo Press Conference

1128d ago ... I have extremely mixed feelings about Nintendo's press conference. While I'm over the moon with the 3DS games for the most part, the Wii U line up screams the "Hardcore" focus to an embarrassing degree. Extremely disappointed at the Wii U controller design as well. Here's my responses to the announcements. - Legend Of Zelda's for all consoles! Link's Awakening on eShop available today for 3D...

PSN Appreciation Program - What should you get?

1135d ago ... With the recent news of the PlayStation Store going live this week I thought I'd help out my fellow man by giving out some advice on what to get. I have played/own most of these titles so I thought I could give my two cents for what they're worth. These are listed in the order of what I believe to be the best choices. 1. inFAMOUS: This is by far the best game they are offering. Superher...
