This Is Why CoD: Ghosts Is Best on Wii U

On point

'The latest instalment in the phenomenally successful Call of Duty franchise launched earlier this week, and it's probably already broken all sorts of crazy sales records' - is a sentence that you've probably read every year now, since around 2007. Nonetheless, Ghosts is out now for Wii U, and we reckon it's the best version money can buy...

These Animal Crossing Plushies May be Hard to Resist

Cuteness overload

Animal Crossing: New Leaf has been around for a good while now, but there are still plenty of 3DS owners accumulating a worrying number of hours as they build their perfect towns. If charming and compulsive is a combination you enjoy, it's still quite possible the best game out there. We'd suggest some of the biggest fans may be...

You Could Hang This Mini Lego Mario Question Block on Your Christmas Tree

We particularly like the Lego Atari 2600

The Holiday season is a festive, happy time, when many off us happily pile on the pounds and, presumably, play a lot of games. It's a time of backlog busting and, perhaps, silly family games — that Wii or, dare we say Wii U can provide the latter activity in particular. Some of us may also have a Christmas...

Supporters Needed To Rebuild NES Hero Mega Man In Lego

From 8-bit to 8-brick

Mega Man has always been a cherished icon since his very first appearance on the NES in 1987, and now a designer by the name of Alatariel seeks to immortalise the character further with an official Lego set. Classic stages from Mega Man 2 such as Wily's Castle and Metal Man can be seen recreated on the designer's page, and...

Mega Man 2.5D Beta Blasts Into View With Co-Op Play

Fan game teams up with Proto Man on PC

So, OK, time continues to pass and we still don't have a new and official Mega Man game to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the franchise. We have soundtracks, USB sticks, plushies and tissue dispensers, but no game. Such is life. Thankfully Mega Man fans often fill the void, and we've seen some fan games...

This Beautiful Zelda-Themed N64 Console Must Surely Come from the Sacred Realm Itself

Shinier than a 100-Rupee Piece

You may recall that earlier this week we shared with you a rather nice looking Zelda-themed SNES that was created by Slovenian console artist, Zoki64. Well, he's just added some more pictures to his portfolio, this time showing off a new Zelda-inspired N64 design, and one which looks so good that even the Goddesses...

A Link Between Worlds theme hides a secret

Super Mario Galaxy Is Eurogamer's Game of the Generation

It's not a Golden Joystick, but it'll do

Over the past 10 days or so, our friends over at Eurogamer have been charting the best games of the past generation - a feat that's easier said than done. Naturally, we kept an eye on proceedings, looking out for any Nintendo titles that might crop up. We watched blockbuster after blockbuster take the...

This Real-life Majora's Mask Is Incredible

Majorly cool

If you've ever played the sequel-of-sorts to the N64 classic The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, then you'll understand why owning your very own Majora's Mask might not be a very good idea. Much like The One Ring from J.R.R. Tolkien's classic The Lord of the Rings novels, or, more fittingly, the Fused Shadows from The Legend of...

Bet You Wish You Were Talented Enough To Build This Awesome Zelda Sandcastle

A sandy work of art

The recent release of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD was pretty big deal for Nintendo, and the company celebrated the event in the most logical way possible: it commissioned some artists to construct a massive sandcastle based on one of the game's locations. You can watch the building of this amazing sculpture below, and...

These Wii U Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag Screenshots Look Very Pretty Indeed

Yarr, it looks to be a decent Port!

By now, we're used to publishers being coy when it comes to showing off their Wii U versions of multiplatform games. More often than not, we won't actually get to see Wii U-specific footage or screenshots until the day of launch, when the community gets its hands on the game. Silence is deafening, as they say, and...

This Zelda Super NES Design is Rather Pretty

A lick of paint can do a lot

It's common for enthusiasts to take existing hardware and apply their own twists with alternate shells, skins and paint; just recently a surprisingly attractive 'Luigi 2DS' looked good enough to be official. The practice of tweaking consoles is perhaps most common with retro consoles, however, as the old are made new...

Feast your eyes on these Famicom and Super Famicom phone mock-ups

There have been calls for Nintendo to enter the mobile phone market for years, with some even going as far as to create 3D renders of what they believe a "Nintenphone" should look like. While the Kyoto company has so far resisted the urge to leap into the handset arena, if it does...
