So first I was gonna do my personal Top 10 Wii games, but we all know how that would turn out. Metroid Prime Trilogy, Galaxy 1, Galaxy 2 on top. And that's just no fun. And DKCR had to be in there, etc ... so instead I decided to do a third party only list! Hopefully it's more interesting!.. (more)

Hey guys, I hope you're enjoying the newest Mario title: "Super Mario Galaxy Wahooooo" (according to Charles Martinet on the load-up screen at least)... (more)

So, as most of y'all know, the DS is my favorite system. Of all time. This generation was, for me, defined by Nintendo's quirky dual-screen handheld. The wealth of quality software, unique and innovative ideas and (thanks to the DSi) cool accessory features, the DS will remain as my top pick for 'most favorite hardware' for at least the foreseeable future. I love that thing... (more)

I’m finally nearing the end of Xenoblade Chronicles after playing it for nearly 80 hours over the course of of about 7 months, and by nearing the end I mean that I may only end up spending another good 20-30 hours on it. That’s just the way that it goes, and others who have played this game know exactly what I am talking about; it digs its claws into you and demands that you give your life over to it. This may be the most time that I have ever put into a single video game outside of Advance Wars, and that’s not really a fair comparison, because Advance Wars had a map editor... (more)

The Nintendo Wii is an interesting phenomenon. Coming off of the disappointing sales of the Gamecube, 3rd party publishers and developers were a bit wary to jump into the next Nintendo home console right away, especially after Nintendo announced that the Wii would come with a (very) non-standard controller and a decided lack of hardware power next to its competition. Yet the Wii took the industry by surprise and soared in the marketplace, quickly becoming not just the best selling home console of the generation, but setting itself on a pace to, perhaps, become the best selling home console of all time. We are approaching the two year anniversary of the console and it is still difficult to simply walk into a store and buy a Wii; they sell out almost as fast as they come in. Surely 3rd party support has followed?.. (more)

It kind of amazes me that after some 25+ years of playing hundreds of video games, a game based around a single, simple core concept can still feel so fresh to me when executed well. In the case of VVVVVV, a new 2D platformer for the 3DS eShop, that concept is to remove the ability to jump with your character (no jumping, in a platformer?) and replace it with the ability to manipulate gravity and flip your character from the bottom to the top of the screen, and vice versa. This mechanic is, essentially, what the entire game is built around. In fact, literally all that you can do in the game is move around and flip your character (barring the occasional button press to active a computer or talk to someone), so it is safe to say that the game sinks or swims based on this mechanic...

Before I can recommend Ivy the Kiwi? Mini, I have to ask one simple question: can you handle a little frustration in your games? If you don’t mind pulling your hair out occasionally because you died for the Nth time on a set of spikes or because you ran out of time just as you were reaching the end of a stage, you will find this game very fun and rewarding. If not, don’t curse my name and say I didn’t warn you... (more)

As any good Nintendo fan knows, Smash Brothers games are currently in development for both the Nintendo Wii U and the Nintendo 3DS, so now seemed like as good of a time as any to put together a wish list of characters that I would like to see appearing in these games... (more)

Donkey Kong 64 is a pretty divisive game, with the most common complaint among critics being “too much collecting!” While the game overdoes it with the collectables, its issues run deeper than that. Collecting “stuff” at its core isn’t a horrible gameplay concept, and—sometimes!—it’s fun to do in DK64. However, there’re several other issues that exacerbate this concept’s problem, and I’ll dive into ‘em now. For the sake of interest, only one of these complaints will be directly collectible-related... (more)
