There are moments in life where giant oversized stickers could make everything easier such as, making your talkative pal from saying another word, stopping the dog from peeing on the carpet, patching up your umbrella for a terrible day of rain and other crafty uses that your devious mind could think of. While you may not have these giant oversized stickers at your everyday disposal the next Paper Mario title gives you all the sticky freedom you ever dreamed of. Continue Reading
Back in the day Mario Party was the most intense game you could pop into a system. When this superstar competition went down between friends blood was shed, fingers were lost in A button mashing and you might have lost your palm to rotating the joy stick as fast as possible. Over the years though the games have lost their charm, competition and everything that made them fun originally. So our only hope was that Mario Party 9 would be redeeming the series as we hope with every entry. Sadly though, this is not the case at all and actually the very opposite. Continue Reading
It’s starting to become a stretch for the Wii in these last couple years it is running. Nintendo is planning for the Wii U in hopes of it becoming bigger than the Wii and the 3DS is even becoming bigger and bigger by the week it seems. But Nintendo still has a trick up it’s sleeve to make me buy more games for my dusty Wii. Soon to be released this coming month is Rhythm Heaven Fever, a game full of miniature Wario Ware-esque games all revolving around rhythm. For those of you that bought a Wii just for Skyward Sword this may be a game to fill up your Wii library, it’s not the most hardcore game but that doesn’t seem to be an issue with Rhythm Heaven. You can play alone or with a friend and have a great time playing badminton in an airplane, or become the ultimate wrestler in an interview. This game is also a must for anyone who loves games such as Katamari Damacy and Wario Ware Inc. just because of the noticeable Japanese feeling to the game. If you haven’t seen the english trailer yet, check it out below!
Ever since the Nintendo DS was released Nintendo craved the attention of casual gamers, hoping that somehow an audience of gamers who play every month or so would turn out to be their money maker. They ended up going the right direction with games such as Brain Age and Nintendogs, not to mention their motion console the Wii ended up selling big numbers that led to Nintendo’s current success today. But there were other competitors that tried to rise to the ranks of the cute puppies and our sensei Kawashima that fell down the steps of bad sales. Elite Beat Agents was one of those games that sadly took the plunge of trying to appeal to casual gamers but only to find that they had been targeting the wrong audience the whole time.
Turn based strategy games are pretty big but Nobunaga’s Ambition is a series you may not have heard of. The franchise has been running for a long time in Japan based on the Sengoku Period of Feudal Japan where the goal of the player is to conquer and unify Japan. This seems to be a far fetched idea for the pokemon franchise. A turn based strategy game with the monsters sounds like a great idea, but I wonder whose idea it was to combine these two series. Let’s hope it gets a translation to english! Check out the new screenshots and trailer below!
It looks like the launch of Kid Icarus:Uprising will be accompanied by a plastic stand so that you don’t have to hold your 3DS while you are playing it. While the controls of the new Kid Icarus might be frustrating or tiring to the hands Nintendo felt that they would give 3DS owners a break by letting them sit it down on a table, that is if you have a table while you are sitting on the bus playing your handheld system. The stand does not make much sense now but maybe it’s uses will be more apparent later on… Continue Reading
If you have not turned your 3DS on in a while (why not, there are plenty of good titles for it) or if you have simply not let it connect to the net in a while, now is a good time to do so.
