Posted by Streex on August 30, 2014 at 11:05 PM Comments comments (0)

It's upgrade time again! Next year Nintendo plans to release a new 3DS model, in fact, that is what it's called. New 3DS and New 3DS XL. This will be the fourth version of the handheld to join the 3DS family, and there are some good reasons to upgrade. First off there is a new control nub above the face buttons on the right side that will allow for better and more control, like changing the camera angle. The top screen has ...

Nintendo No Longer Has Time For Pathetic Gamers

Posted by Streex on August 29, 2014 at 4:00 AM Comments comments (0)

Shigeru Miyamoto has a knack of saying things Nintendo doesn't always want him to say. He gives away too much on games he's thinking about making and can share too much on the next direction of the company. The latter has just happened, and very bluntly at that. It's no secret that casual gamers are off playing casual games on mobile devices because they like to waste time gaming instead of investing it. Now Miyamoto h...

Aonuma Listening To Fans As He Creates Zelda For Wii U

Posted by Streex on August 29, 2014 at 3:15 AM Comments comments (0)

Eiji Aonuma wants to make sure we are as pleased as possible with the new Zelda game for Wii U he is working on, so he is letting it known that he is taking fan reaction to the E3 trailer into consideration during development. This sounds great on paper. We love when developers truly care what we think, but I hope he is careful in his decisions. The vocal minority don't always reflect what the majority is looking for. O...

Mario Kart 8 DLC Just Got A Whole Lot Better

Posted by Streex on August 27, 2014 at 2:50 AM Comments comments (0)

Right after we get a heaping dose of leaked Super Smash Bros. news, Nintendo drops a beefy load of Mario Kart 8 DLC info. This November (or preorder tomorrow!), for only $8, you can download pack 1 which includes 3 characters (Tanooki Mario, Cat Peach, and Link), 4 new vehicles, and 8 new courses. Call me cray cray, but that sounds like one hell of a deal. In May next year, get ready for pack 2 which will have another 3 n...

Arcade Titles We'd Like To See On Wii U

Posted by Streex on August 24, 2014 at 11:45 PM Comments comments (0)

Ah the good ol' days. Early consoles didn't give us the opportunity to play 4-player games, but it didn't matter. We went down to the local arcade and found some really good titles that ate our quarters daily. Now that consoles easily support up to 4 or more players, some of these greats have entered our living rooms on other consoles, but not on Wii U. Even 3DS has Space Harrier! I would drop a few bucks in a heartbeat...

Multi-Game Nintendo Direct, Where Art Thou?

Posted by Streex on August 24, 2014 at 10:50 PM Comments comments (0)

You know what I miss? I miss the Nintendo Direct that came out every other month, filled with at least 6 titles to look forward to in the near future. It was bliss, and a constant reminder of the great things to come. Unfortunately, 2014 has been pretty dry with only a couple Nintendo Directs made specifically for one game. Is Nintendo abandoning the all encompassing Nintendo Direct before it even started, or is this po...

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Won't Find Market On Wii U

Posted by Streex on August 24, 2014 at 9:00 PM Comments comments (0)

It's been an off-again, on-again deal with rumors on the arrival of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare for Wii U. Now it seems, the final answer is no. Activision has had success with the franchise on Wii, selling over a million units with each title (over 2M with Call of Duty 3) except for Modern Warfare 3 (740K), but Black Ops II and Ghosts on Wii U could only muster up 240K andd 170K respectively. We can get upset a...

Zero Suit Alternative Costumes Force Gamers To Find Clean Pants

Posted by Streex on August 22, 2014 at 3:25 AM Comments comments (0)

Samus has been the pin up girl for gamers for several years now thanks to her Zero Suit, and now she's changing into something a little more comfortable. Alternative Zero Suit costumes have been announced for Samus in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U that have her wearing a work out bra and boyshorts. Seems Nintendo is trying to make her just a little bit more sexy, but is it crossing the line? When you compare this to girls i...
