Thank You, Satoru Iwata

9d ago ... The news has struck from this month that Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata passed away. The sudden and heavy feeling of loss has not only been seen from Nintendo, but the entire video game industry. Death is a hard subject to talk about. It's hard enough when the person who passed away is someone who played a significant role in your life. For many gamers, Satoru Iwata was present for many of their gam...

The Wii U is DONE: How the Nintendo NX could re-write the rules

37d ago ... Amid the madness that was E3 2015, one detail that was spoken of so briefly that the term ‘glossed over’ doesn’t quite feel accurate–the Nintendo NX console–made a quiet blip on the radar before taking a backseat to the new additions to their longstanding franchise Super Smash Bros. (which really showed me the direction the company is determined to go in), plushies and arguably way too much tim...

The Importance of Being an Omnigamer

65d ago ... It's easy to pick a platform and form brand loyalty. It's cheaper, it's saves space under your TV, it's easier to keep track of new games releasing and it's just plain fun to join in on the fanboy/girl platform wars. http://i.imgur.com/B5kLr9R.png But I'm here to do the unpopular thing and tell you that you are failing as a gamer if you do this. Not only are you missing out on some of...

What's Happening to Nintendo?

457d ago ... I love Nintendo. I may not be as tight with them as I am with Sony, but Ninty and I go way back. Heck, Super Mario World for the SNES was the first videogame I ever encountered, at the age of four, so it's possible I never would have taken up gaming as a past time, if it wasn't for good old Ninty. But, many of their decisions lately, have been questionable, at best. It's no secret that th...

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

471d 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...

You never cancel a pre-order early.... especially over something as stupid as graphics.

490d ago ... Gamers have made me angry ALOT over the years. Here's a small list of the stuff I've dealt with. PS4 haters. Xbox One haters. Wii U haters. Cheaters in online multiplayer. People who try to "expose" you. People who want Ridley in Super Smash Bros 4. But THIS topic takes the cake. Some of you actually CANCELLED your Watch Dogs pre-orders because the graphics were "downgraded" from wh...

10 Reasons why the Wii U Wins!!!

509d 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...

The Evolution of Video Game Violence

509d ago ... As a child the games I played were often fun, cartoony, and parental approved such as games like Super Mario Bros. World, Crash Bandicoot, Pokémon, Super Smash Bros., and more. As an adult games have changed. While the experiences I enjoyed as a child are still available for gamers of all ages, many games are now about shooting, violence, and gore. What happened and what changed in the mediu...

Nintendo Should Revive the Gamecube Controller with Smash Bros Wii U

553d 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)

694d 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...

Wii U's Third-Party Problem isn't Nintendo's Fault - It's the Devs

712d ago ... ...It's no secret that when it comes down to Nintendo and third party support - things have never been the best. For this reason and that reason, it's seemed that for years, third-parties just simply want to avoid Nintendo. As of late, though - it seems that Nintendo has been trying to patch things up. From letting a third-party company handle one of their biggest franchises (Bando-Namcai w...

EVO 2013: Epic Fights, Great Nights

748d ago ... My first appearance at this year’s Evo 2013 was filled with some many great memories, and I’m already feeling my Evo-withdrawal kicking in. From Mango’s upset over Wobbelz in Super Smash Bros Melee to Justin Wong’s near come from behind victory in Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, with 1.7 million people livestreaming all of the legendary action witnessed digital geeks become headliners in this year...

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

783d 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...

The Key To the Wii U's Success

1026d ago ... Graphics. Really? Yes. The Graphics are the key. If people find that the PS4 and 720 aren't large leaps in appearance for their games, then third-party devlopers will be willing to put their games the same way on the Wii U, because of its iPad style controller, which will and kind of already has people attracted, and also can open up new experiences. With third party support, people will pro...

Made from scratch for the 3DS, Cartoon Network Punch Time Explosion pulls 18 characters from 11 Cartoon Network shows to do battle across 32 levels and 21 arenas - explosively.
