Nintendo has made the best version of the Playstation Vita so far. Except this one has games to play. After the relative fail of the WiiU (which still sold more units that the last two Sega consoles), Nintendo has come out with a combined home console and portable device that nobody uses as a home console. Not that we care, because the Nintendo exclusives are enough to keep us happy. You could go through life playing only Nintendo games and be a very satisfied gamer.

Nintendo Labo Workshop

We went to Scienceworks for the Nintendo Labo workshop back in March and we took some irl children to try it out. We started by making racing cars.. which somehow turned into elephants and bugs as they got decorated. Then we got to battle them against eachother. Labo kits can make a house with a hamster in it, a piano with cats in it, a motorbike, and even a robot you can wear. Kids (and grownups) can even learn how to code using the built in Discovery Studio. But probably the most amazing thing we saw was children being quiet and creating things for several hours - Nintendo Labo will make a lot of parents very happy.

Fifteen years ago today, F-Zero GX first saw release! It's the most recent console entry in the series, and it still holds up as one of the fastest and most intense racing games ever made. It helps that it was developed entirely by Sega, a company well known for their fast arcade action. On top of its intensity, F-Zero GX is known for being one of the most challenging racing games ever made. Spawning many angry forum posts, it rewarded those who put the time with a hell of an experience. Perhaps one day Nintendo will revisit this franchise. It's too good to be more than just a Mario Kart 8 track.

Today marks the 20th Anniversary of Banjo-Kazooie, which released on this day for the Nintendo 64 in 1998! The first of Rare's platformers for the system, Banjo provided a hell of a platforming experience in the wake of Super Mario 64 and injected a tonne of personality into the genre. Do you have any memories of Banjo-Kazooie?

58.8% Smash: A Recap of the E3 2018 Nintendo Direct.

This year's Nintendo E3 Direct brought us Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Super Mario Party, and more details for Super Smash Bros Ultimate including the new character Ridley (believe it or not).

After some great and not so impressive conferences at this year’s E3, Nintendo was highly anticipated to bring us some juicy news. With the potential for some much wanted first-party titles for Switch, I stayed up until past 2am with high hopes for news on Pokémon, Animal Crossing, and more. With caffeine and sugar in my system, my body was ready. Like previous years, this year’s presentation followed the Nintendo Direct format,. The show began starting on a less colourful note with Demon X Machina, a mecha game for the Switch. Following this was Xenoblade 2 Story DLC ‘Torna –...

A PSA for Fortnite players trying out the newly released Switch version: You will not be able to log in using an Epic Account created on the Playstation 4. You can create a new account, but this will mean starting without your progress or cosmetics. The Switch version otherwise supports cross-play between Xbox, PC, Mac and mobile.

Ubisoft is one of the few gaming monoliths that can still surprise us. Who would’ve thought that Assassin’s Creed: Origins would mark the franchise’s return to form? Who could’ve predicted  the critical successes of Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle? This was reflected in previous years through Ubisoft’s E3 presentations, which were always the most interesting and unpredictable, backed by an sincerity unmatched by any other company. It’s curious, then, to see Ubisoft pump the brakes with this year’s showing. Beyond Good and Evil 2 closed off last year’s show, so it’s fitting ...

Bethesda had an interesting 2017. Despite a lacklustre trip to Bethesdaland and reports that several of its games didn’t meet sales targets, the company was still the number one publisher on Metacritic, a fact proudly claimed by Senior VP of Global Marketing Pete Hines. Though if this year’s E3 press conference is any indication, 2018 and beyond are going to be very big and important years for the publisher. The show kicked off quite literally with a bang as inspirational speaker Andrew W.K. and his band introduced us to to the recently unveiled Rage 2, as well as endless shots of aud...
