Let's Play Mario Kart 8 With Lydia

First up, Mushroom Cup 150cc

Hi guys! I guess some introductions are in order. I'm Lydia and you may (or may not) know me from my YouTube channel Squid Gaming. I'm here to take on the Mario Kart 8 challenge set by those lovely folks at Nintendo Life. Whilst dancing to the Pokemon theme tune at EGX London (I know, what was I thinking?), I bumped...

News: Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow to Complete GBA Trilogy on Wii U Virtual Console

Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow to Complete GBA Trilogy on Wii U Virtual Console

Scarily good

The Game Boy Advance enjoyed a terrific trilogy of 2D Castlevania titles — as did its successor, the DS — which set impressive standards for portable entries in the franchise. With GBA games on the Wii U, the prospect of playing them on the GamePad — or the TV if you like enormous pixels — must have come to the minds of Konami...

Capcom Won't Greenlight Sequels If A Game Doesn't Sell Over Two Million Copies

No plans for future Darkstalkers games, either

Capcom's Yoshinori Ono has revealed that the company is chasing big sales right now, and that sequels won't be given the go ahead unless the previous title cleared two million units sold. The comment was made in an interview with Famitsu, where Ono also said that there would be no future Darkstalkers...

Nintendo 64x64: Mission: Impossible

Mission: Impossible

"should you choose to accept it"

Best enjoyed without the obvious comparison with other movie tie-ins. Don't judge on the poor opening two levels; they're far more engaging and complex as it progresses, plus unlocking levels like Terminal Room is immensely rewarding. Its strength is the stealth elements of the game, although unfortunately hindered...

Shantae and the Pirate's Curse Finally Shakes its Release Delay Hex

3DS version coming to North America on 23rd October

Fans of WayForward's half-genie have been wishing for Shantae and the Pirate's Curse for some time, with the game getting pushed back more than once through 2014.

Review: Red Riding Hood (Wii U eShop)

Red Riding Hood (Wii U eShop)

All the better to bore you with, my dear

Clearly aimed at children, Brave Rock Games' Red Riding Hood is a vaguely interactive storybook that, while certainly not a scam at the inexpensive asking price of $1 USD, will take users no more than 15 minutes to play through. With bare-bones presentation, narration that moves at a snail's pace and nearly...

Review: KORG DSN-12 (3DS eShop)

KORG DSN-12 (3DS eShop)

Electric Feel

Teaming up with Japanese developer Detune once again, KORG has proven itself to be quite enamoured with the 3DS eShop by releasing another piece of music creation software, in the form of KORG DSN-12. Emulating the popular MS-10 analogue synthesizer, this title brings us back to a time of smoke-filled clubs and angst-ridden youths all...

Nintendo 64x64: WCW/nWo Revenge

WCW/nWo Revenge

"Fighting Game of the Year"

The best WCW game ever and only bettered by THQ's very own No Mercy. The game engine was the best a wrestling game ever had; simple controls to use, with scope to hone and perfect for expert status. It had a fantastic roster, all WCW arenas and competition for every belt. Revenge should have had a proper create-a-player...

Mobot Studios Discusses Paper Monsters Recut and its Commitment to Wii U

Not papering over the cracks

It's already clear that, for devoted and keen Wii U owners, the eShop is a sanctuary of regular releases. Indie gaming is all the rage, and the eShop eco-system is already taking on a fairly unique identity with a mix of major download releases, occasional exclusives and — for better or worse, depending on the game...
