That nagging feeling.

7d ago ... Change will always give rise to conflicting emotions. When Nintendo announced their mobile plans, many were enthused. Some were investors who see it as a way forward for the company towards the greener pastures of mobile gaming – which will hopefully make more “green” for them. Some wiser fans recognized that for Nintendo to remain game makers, they had to expand and adapt in order to survive...

Nintendoom: Part 3: Specs., Price, and Performance

34d ago ... First and foremost the console has to be more powerful, but most importantly, easy to develop for (something all developers benefit from). The PlayStation 4 is the perfect example of giving developers, the gamer, and the community what they want, and reaping the rewards for it. At $199 - $249 the console can’t be a powerhouse if it launches between 2017 - 2018, but at worst it should be on pa...

Nintendoom: Part 1: Re-shaping the console

34d ago ... It's a new year, and time for a new blog, so let’s get right into it. Nintendoom. “Is this the end of Nintendo”, “Is this the end of Handhelds”, we've heard all this before, but looking at the state of the Wii U, and it's understandable why this topic comes up. The Wii U is currently performing worse than the GameCube which is considered a failure sales-wise amongst the gaming community, esp...

The Eighth Console Generation is Weird

61d ago ... So here we are, a little over a year into all of the eighth console generation platforms being available to the public. Though each of the platforms show promise and the games look to be getting better and better, there are some things about this console generation that seem, well, off. Here's a short list of why I think this generation is a bit wacky compared to last. 1. None of the console...

Why So Successful? - How Sony and the Playstation Platform Have Evolved

62d ago ... Last generation, I was able to purchase every major console and handheld, basically fulfilling a childhood dream – to own them all. It was an awesome dream to fulfill as a gamer. The sad part was that most of them became paperweights or dust collectors. As you get older, the time just isn’t there anymore….so enjoy and appreciate that free time while it lasts. I predominantly played Xbox and PS...

New Nintendo Console Incoming? You Don't Say!

79d ago ... Recently, a lot of news has been pouring in about Nintendo, and for what seems like the first time in a (really) long time, it's all positive. The 3DS is undeniably any gamer's Master Sword of a system, and the Wii U has finally become "the little console that CAN!" - as its fortunes have almost completely shifted direction for the better. Case in point, both of Nintendo's systems and their com...

The Gift of Gaming Gone Wrong?

111d ago ... I am a man on a mission. My goal is to convert as many of my relatives into gamers as possible. I need people to play with….and borrow games from. I never said this mission was altruistic. Like any good indoctrination scheme, my focus is on my younger family members. Their minds are there to be molded. Anyway, enough of the creepy backstory. I want to buy a gaming device for my niece who’s abou...

Bay 2's first week in US shows big promise by comparison to first game...

141d ago ... So apparently, even before factoring in digital sales, Bay 2's first week of state-side sales have out-done the first week sales of Bayonetta 1's original state-side release, especially after factoring in the difference in install bases during the time of the first game's release and the install base of the Wii U during Bay 2's release. XBox 360 Bayonetta week 1 sales[5 days of data]: 91,668...

When Did Graphics Stop Mattering?

156d ago ... Quite some time ago, I began to notice gamers exclaiming how "graphics don't matter," and phrases like "it's the gameplay, not the graphics!" Well, I say, since when did gamers stop caring about how their games look, and why has it become almost politically incorrect as a gamer to demand both great gameplay and amazing-looking,eye-popping colors and textures whilst playing said awesome gameplay...

So I found something that bugs me about the Bay 2 reactions...

158d ago ... So I found out something a little bit ago that really put things into perspective for me, regarding Bayonetta 2, and I just want to talk about that a little....[keep in mind, I'm an owner of the first game, on PS3] A long while back, a little gem called Mad World made its way to the Wii. This game, despite being on a system that was infested mostly with casuals who didn't pay attention to c...

Will we ever see the end of "Definitive Editions" games?

171d ago ... So it seems like this generation "Definitive Editions" of games are going to be the next big thing. What is a "Definitive Edition" of a game? Judging from what has been released so far you can conclude that the so called definitive edition is one that includes the following: 1)A release on any of the modern generation of hardware including: Ps4, Xbox One, PC, or WiiU 2)Higher resolution,...

Please be constructive and unbiased and feel free to state your opinion and list your own personal favorites. As a side note since I never owned a Wii during the 7th gen only PS3 and 360 games are listed. Also PC games are excluded as I don't play much on PC. Additionally PCs' don't really...

Wii U owners unite for 3rd party support.

219d ago ... Alright so it’s no secret that 3rd party support generally sucks on Nintendo consoles. I’ve been on the defending side of both parties, but honestly the only party that can change the current situation and lack of proper 3rd party support is you, the gamer. So here’s a list of good no great 3rd party games that every Wii U should own if they’re a fan of the genre. Oh and remember, please “BUY N...

Nintendo's Biggest Issue with Third-Parties IS Nintendo

220d ago ... Yes, you read that correctly. As we all know — third-parties haven't played well with Nintendo, for quite a while now; over 20 years to be exact. Yes — it's been THAT long. Every generation, it seems to be the same old story; Nintendo announces new system with a myriad of the tried-&-true exclusives and only a handful of (decent) third-party titles to accompany them. While their handheld...

GAME BITS: WAR THUNDER

231d ago ... Like its Belarusian counterpart, War thunder is an MMO game that caters to WWII military buffs. This short article will center only to game battle instead of the game mode that War thunder offers. Unlike World of Tanks the game is more difficult to play because of its extreme leaning to realistic battle; in World of Tank you have the health point to see if your tank can still carry the br...

3 Platform Future: Nintendo N-Fusion!!!!!!!!

232d ago ... Nintendo will always be remembered as a pioneer in the gaming industry by standardizing the consoles, and creating some of the most well-known, successful, and established franchises in gaming. However, Nintendo's fortunes has taken a turn for the worse with the home console once again in risk of being a commercial failure. Nintendo's home console sales have been on the decline each console g...

The ongoing list of third party ports and their flaws:

243d ago ... Note: This list will be ongoing and will include games outside the Wii U, so if I miss any, feel free to contribute. It's time this parties were shown where they went wrong, where common sense in development failed to enter into their plans for some ports, and to silence apologists who use their console preferences to defend the flawed ports. So a bunch of people (read: apologists) have tak...
