We’re counting down the last 5 days of 2015 with New Year’s Resolutions for 5 major publishers to follow.  The odds of them listening are slim, but at least when they screw up again we can say “told you so.” [DAY 1] [DAY 2] [DAY 3] [DAY 4] [DAY 5] Our final New Year’s Resolution…

Nintendo announced three new pieces of DLC today as part of what director Masahiro Sakurai confirmed would be the last Smash Direct for Super Smash Brothers for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.

For those of you who’re fans of the Guitar Hero series, you’ll be pleased to hear that Star Power is coming to Activision’s new Guitar Hero Live; due out on console later this year. It’s not ‘Star Power’ anymore, as the new modifiers are called ‘Hero Powers’, though it looks like they’ll have the same…

The Wii U has been in trouble since it launched in fall 2012. Many saw the new Nintendo console as a lackluster successor to the Wii, which reflected in its sales. Added on to that is the fact that the console launched with few games and while it is finally finding its stride, it’s only…

The announcement of Hyrule Warriors last December was a really welcome surprise. With the Wii U lacking third party support, it was interesting to see Nintendo giving one of its more successful franchise to a company that’s quite loved in Japan. At the same time, The Legend Of Zelda games are quite different from the…

I was born in 1996, just as the NES, or Nintendo Entertainment System, was reaching its zenith. The truth is, I missed out on many incredible games that have shaped the games industry into what it is today. I hear countless stories of the long hours put into Mega Man boss fights, or of the…
