  • Poll The GameCube is 15 Years Old - Pick Your Favourite Games

    Can you handle the pressure?

    The GameCube arrived in Japan on 14th September 2001 in Japan, meaning the handle-boasting wonder is 15 years old (even though it's 15th September in Japan as we publish this, thanks to time zones). To date it holds the dubious honour of being Nintendo's lowest-selling home console, though Wii U looks likely to take that...

  • News Suda51 Would Love To Revisit Killer7 At Some Point

    "It’s up to Capcom to allow something like this"

    Killer7 was one of the fabled "Capcom Five", a selection of titles that the Japanese publisher pledged would be exclusive to the GameCube. As we all know, that claim didn't last long; out of the five, only P.N.03 remained Nintendo-only, with Dead Phoenix being canned in 2003 and the remaining three...

    Many years in the making

  • News Modder Shows How to Play the 3DS With a GameCube Controller

    No need to smash up the system

    One controller generally considered to go hand-in-hand with the Super Smash Bros. series is the GameCube pad, which many still use in the most recent home console releases. Of course, it'll be possible to continue that tradition with the GameCube Controller Adapter for Wii U, but it's not an option for the imminent...

  • Feature A Brief History of Pikmin

    Three down, more surely to come

    Pikmin 3, after a lengthy development period, is now beginning to grace Wii U systems around the world, and is clearly a source of great pride for Shigeru Miyamoto. The famous Nintendo designer has described it as the "ultimate version of Pikmin 1", and to date it's received substantial critical praise, including a...

  • News Soul Calibur II HD Online Not Announced For Wii U

    Well that's Link out of the equation

    Namco Bandai has revealed an HD remake of Soul Calibur II is in development for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, but there's been absolutely no mention of a Wii U adaptation. Soul Calibur II was originally on the GameCube, PlayStation 2 and Xbox and each iteration had its own special character. Nintendo fans had the...

  • News Nintendo Initially Requested a Shutdown of the Whole Smash Bros. EVO Event, Before Backtracking

    It wasn't just the stream

    We know that Nintendo, in recent months, has been attempting to assert greater control over its image and any representation of its IPs. It started claiming the advert money from monetized videos featuring its properties on YouTube, before subsequently backing down in some cases; it wouldn't be surprising if this was due...

  • News Nintendo Will Allow Super Smash Bros. Melee Stream From EVO 2013

    Tournament now returning to regularly scheduled programming

    Mere hours ago it was revealed by Shoryuken that Nintendo was, for some unknown, likely inane reason or another, blocking a stream of 2001 Gamecube title Super Smash Bros. Melee from the EVO 2013 fighting game tournament in Las Vegas this month. Well, scratch that: After a flurry of...

    Review Star Wars Rogue Squadron III: Rebel Strike

    Three's a crowd

    Factor 5 struck gold when it released the sublime Star Wars: Rogue Squadron for the Nintendo 64 way back in 1998/1999. Then, in 2001/2002, the development studio topped this already impressive feat with the astounding Star Wars Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader. So when it announced that it had a third Rogue Squadron game in the works...

    Review Star Wars Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader

    A force to be reckoned with

    In many ways, Star Wars Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader is the definitive Star Wars game. That's not to say that it's the best game that's ever been based on the franchise, but rather, it's the best at capturing the pure essence and magic of it. Developed by Factor 5 in collaboration with LucasArts, it's a technical...

    Review Viewtiful Joe

    A Viewtiful debut

    Joe is nothing more than an average… well, Joe, as it were. The guy loves old movies and their cheesy melodrama, so when a malevolent hand drags him into a superhero flick, he’s absolutely pumped. This is a chance to do the impossible; to pull off his favorite actions scenes with high-flying kicks, slow-motion thrills, and...

    Arcade version discovered by hackers

    If you're one of the thousands of people that still despairs that the arcade version of F-Zero GX — cunningly titled F-Zero AX — was really hard to find in its heyday, and has since all but died out, we've got some good news for you.

  • Feature Series Reboots That Have Divided Gamers

    They did WHAT with [insert treasured franchise name here]?

  • Feature Reimagining The Wind Waker on Wii U

    The possibilities are exciting

    Leaving Nintendo’s Space World presentation in 2001, few would have imagined that of all the games shown, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker would become a watershed moment for the company. Panned by some fans and critics alike for its cel-shaded look, the game has since arguably become a symbol of how to create a...

  • Rumour GameCube Coming to Wii U Virtual Console

    It's bound to happen, right?

    The Wii U eShop is still a mystery, to the extent that we're assuming that it'll be branded as "eShop" on the basis of new pre-paid funding cards spotted in North America. Another mystery is the Virtual Console, as we've only been introduced to new download titles scheduled for the launch period, with few clues as to...

    Do or don't look back into the sun

    Ten years ago today, on 26th August 2002, GameCube title Super Mario Sunshine was released in North America to an abundance of critical acclaim, with relatively muted murmuring that it was an unworthy follow-up to Super Mario 64. Gradually over the past decade opinions have grown more divided and gamers have...

    Jon celebrates the 10th anniversary of this cult horror classic by losing his mind, in more ways than one

    Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem is one of those games whose cult status has snowballed since it hit in 2002, and with good reason. As a fairly innovative horror game from Silicon Knights and Nintendo, it kept players on their toes for its...
