    Nintendo Switch: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly (that we know)

    I prefer to start with the negatives, so let's start with The Ugly: I. The Ugly 1, 2 Switch and Arms - What the hell is this? These two so-called games are absolutely stupid and pointless. I get it: Nintendo always has to have their little tech-demos. But at least Wii Sports was fun. It...

    Your PS3 Recommendations

    Hello! I recently purchased a PS3 to play PS2 and PS1 games. I have already complied a list of PS1 and PS2 games that I will be getting. However, I thought to myself "Well, now that I have a PS3, I might as well play PS3 games." This is where you guys come play a role! I'm hoping to get some...

    General Question Re: Xbox 360 —> Xbox Backwards Compatibility

    Hello. I've asked this general question before, but before I actually spend money on games, I want to be 100% sure that this is possible. I'm very interested in buying The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind GOTY Edition for the Xbox and play it on my Xbox 360. It is my understanding that most/all...

    Happy MetroiDay

    This year was a special year. We had ZelDay earlier this year, in which we celebrated Zelda's 30th Anniversary. And tomorrow, it will be MetroiDay, where we will celebrate Metroid's 30th Anniversary. Since Nintendo doesn't seem interested in celebrating either Zelda or Metroid with us—and in...

    Nintendo Dropping Online Support Early?

    Folks, it's happening all over again. It was recently announced that Devil's Third servers would be shut down this year. Forever. Now, a lot of people have gotten this game for the multiplayer, which is one of the most satisfying online systems I've ever played. Yes, the single-player campaign...

    Euros and Copa America

    Anyone planning on following one or both of these tournaments? They should be really good, both of them. Since it's summer, I'm going to watch them both, as I've nothing better to do with my time! I know some of you English folks must be pretty excited, since the squad is pretty strong. Led, of...

    PlayStation "Neo", Xbox "Scorpio", Nintendo NX: mid-generational leaps

    There are two issues here. I. PlayStation and Xbox both to "upgrade" current consoles: Nintendo NX in trouble before it launches? So clearly, the NX was supposed to bring Nintendo into modernity. It was Nintendo's answer to the PS4. Except, oops, now PlayStation is upping the ante. The NX is...

    Favorite 2D Metroid Game (and why)

    I've been playing through my first run of Metroid Fusion, and I have to say, it's a lot of fun. It's no Super Metroid, but it's right up there with Metroid: Zero Mission. And now that I think about it, I know Super is my favorite 2D Metroid (I have it on my Top 5 games of all time), but I'm...

    A Serious Question Regarding the NX

    A lot of people are eagerly awaiting the NX. However, many of us feel like Nintendo is taking a huge risk and it is one that may not pay off. As a long-time Nintendo fan, in fact, I'm actually very concerned this may be the one from which Nintendo does not recover. I hope that is not the case...

    Happy Zelday!

    To all my fellow Zelda fans here, happy Zelday! Zelda turns 30 today, and it's a grand day! It wasn't exactly 30 years ago that I played my first Zelda game, but it was close. It was actually early 1987 when I held a NES controller in my [probably] sticky little toddler hands and played The...

    Deleting Social Media Accounts

    Have any of you gotten so fed up with any sort of social media that you deleted your account entirely? I did it with facebook a few years ago, but got back on recently to keep up with law school events (because for some reason, they announce stuff on fb assuming everyone has it). But I hate it...

    The Shard in the Ghost Ship

    In The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, a Triforce Shard is located in the Ghost Ship. The history of the Ghost Ship is shrouded in legend and myth, and its location is ever changing. What we do know is that it is cursed, for the person who crafted the Ghost Ship Chart died after finishing...

    Sequence Breaking

    Recently I've been really into Super Metroid. The game is so freaking good. The first time I played it, it took me 8:30 (that's 8 hours, approx 30 min.) to beat, and I only got 88% of the items. The second time I improved my time, but still didn't manage 100% items. There's just no way someone...

    The Future of Nintendo: Life After Iwata-san

    It has been over a week now, and I think we've all been able to digest the news that rocked the gaming world. However, as sad as it is, life has to move on, and that includes life at Nintendo. After all, those left behind still have a business to run. All of the news point to Shigeru Miyamoto...

    Enemy Levels: Preset or Level Up?

    Typically, RPGs follow one of two models when creating enemy levels. The enemy levels are either preset or the enemies "level-up" with the character. Now, arguably, both have their pros and cons. People who prefer the enemies to level up with the character usually talk about being over-levelled...

    Retro Studios and Platinum Games at E3

    So apparently, both Retro and P+ have some interesting tweets concerning Nintendo and E3. Both companies retweeted Nintendo Direct's tweet, which is coming next Tuesday, if I'm not mistaken. Now, speculation gets us nowhere, but I would REALLY enjoy if we're going to get a reveal for a new 3D...

    Opinion Piece: Blue Shells and YOU

    First of all, let me say that Mario Kart is one of my favorite franchises out there. It’s also the only competitive multiplayer game that I can say that I’m very good at. I’m very good at Mario Kart. I suck at fighters, shooters, other racing games, sports games, etc., but Mario Kart is...

    Unintentional Hypocrisy

    So my wife ... bless her heart. She thinks video games are stupid and dumb and a waste of time. She doesn't get how I can spend hours playing. She also doesn't understand why I have "so many Wiis" ... she means, consoles, but whatever. So then, she turns around and watches Vampire Diaries, My...

    Dastardly Deeds

    This is something that happened in real life, to "someone I know". The names have been changed for the safety of those involved. My friend recently moved into this neighborhood. My friend has a dog, and my friend always takes the dog out on a leash. Partly because he/she is scared his/her dog...

    Best Incarnation of Ganon(dorf)

    So I was playing Wind Waker, and I really wanted to focus on Ganondorf and his dialog. Of all of the Ganon/Ganondorf incarnations, this one seemed to me to be the least evil. I mean, no Ganon is good, but his lines made it seem like he actually had a reason for what he was doing, in his own...
