The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds grants Link the ability to turn himself into a flat painting and therefore stick to walls.

A Young Person Plays Super Metroid

Y CAN'T METROID CRAWL

I've been playing a videogame called Super Metroid Primes this week. It is not very good. When I saw that Dave had given the game a perfect score in his review last week, I was very excited to try it out for myself, especially considering that it was only 30p (or 30 cents, if you're on that side of the pond) on the Wii U...

Nintendo Has A Sense Of Humour About Poor 3DS Battery Life

Animal Crossing: New Leaf pokes fun at the poor stamina of handheld

One of the few things that really irks us about the 3DS is the poor battery life. The demands of powering two screens (one of which is 3D), running a wireless connection and juicing up those stereo speakers is clearly too much for the console's internal power supply, and as a result...

This Is What Real Life GoldenEye 007 Multiplayer Looks Like

Proximity mines always win

It's actually quite scary to think how many collective man hours the team at Nintendo Life has spent playing multiplayer on GoldenEye 007. During our formative years, this highly esteemed cartridge rarely left the console and any person that didn't own a copy and four controllers was shunned as something of an outcast...

But they have no idea who he is

One of the many advantages of being a video game voice actor is that you can walk down the street without anyone giving you so much as a second look. However, when you're the voice actor of one of the most iconic characters in gaming, it's a different story altogether - which is why we were very surprised to see...

One pastiche you don't want to mess with

When the trailer for the fictitious film The Brothers Mario was released, it gave us a good chuckle at how many video game and cultural references were crammed so beautifully into the space of 5 minutes.

Spot the cultural references in this film parody

Back in 1993, Hollywood tried to convert one of the biggest video game franchises into a live action motion picture... and it wasn't that good. What was wrong with Super Mario Bros. the film, wasn't the on-screen talent, but the writing and the concept itself. Nothing wrong with throwing in a bit of...

In these troubled economic times it is great to see some entrepreneurial spirit looking for an opportunity to turn their skills into cash.
