Nintendo’s ARMS Is a Rock’em Sock’em Virtual-On

Being inspired by an idea and putting your own twist on it is nothing new. Some games do more than borrow ideas, as we’ve seen with Balloon Fight and Joust. But more recently, Nintendo just dropped an exciting new IP called ARMS. This well received small arena 3D fighting game might have borrowed elements from……


Fire Emblem Gaiden remake for the 3DS!

Nintendo recently unveiled Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia for the 3DS along with many other Fire Emblem titles. This can only be seen as good news, as the series is fantastic. The most exciting thing about this is that it’s a remake of the Famicom exclusive Fire Emblem Gaiden, the second game in the……


Some thoughts on Nintendo Switch…

Let’s just get this out of the way up front…I’m a huge Nintendo fanboy and Zelda looks amazing. I cannot wait for that game. Arms looks like it’ll be super fun, too. Now that we’ve established that, here are some thoughts on the Switchand Nintendo in general…

Nintendo seems to avoid good decisions like the plague.

Seriously, Nintendo…….

Panel de Pon by any other name…

SNES Classic Edition on it’s way out? Let’s hope!

SNES Classic Edition, the logical step up from the NES Classic Edition, is hopefully underway. As we have talked about before, Nintendo released a plug n’ play console in China called the iQue. It was an N64 with games built in, most of which are amazing. It’s not unreasonable to expect the next few generations……


Has Nintendo learned their lesson from previous failures?

What are your thoughts on the NES Classic Edition shortage and how are you dealing with it? Are you willing to pay outrageous prices on eBay or will you wait for Nintendo to finally make the supply fit the demand? I personally think that they should have a “Classics Collection” game, either digital……


NES Classic Review: Final Fantasy

Final Fantasy is one of the most popular series of all time, and this is the game that started it. It might seem like an unfair, monotonous JRPG that’s a lesson in patience and torture, but it’s actually a great game. This is an unapologetically old school game; one that forces you to……


Reminder: There are amazing retro games available for the Wii, Wii U, and New 3DS.

Retro gems on a budget.

I’d like to take a moment to remind everybody out there that there are a lot of amazing titles for your current and last gen systems. For this post, I will be concentrating on the Nintendo systems. The Wii, though long dead, still has an active online marketplace where you can purchase……


Classic NES Review: Dr. Mario

Dr. Mario is one of the best puzzle games to come out on the NES, and is a great compliment to Tetris. It’s a welcome addition to the NES Classic Edition (or the Mini NES as I call it) and is a great game to pick up and play for a few minutes…Ah, who am……


Classic NES Review: Double Dragon II: The Revenge

In another odd move, the NES Classic Edition gets the second game in a series, but not the first. That’s okay! This is probably the best of the three Double Dragon games on the system. The first one is cool, but is missing some stuff like co-op. The third one is absurdly difficult and has……
