A Miiverse Adventure With Mega Man X

Time for some Megan Man, er, Mega Man

A little while ago we reviewed Mega Man X on the Wii U Virtual Console, and liked it a lot. We happen to think this is a brilliant game, but it may nevertheless seem peculiar to those encountering it for the first time. We decided to try and see the game through fresh eyes while working on the review, and below...

Or Google+ and Tumblr, if you prefer

While most attention is currently drawn to the floor at E3, Nintendo has applied a Miiverse update that now allows you to share posts on Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and Tumblr.

The run up to E3 is full of teasing and surprises, and this year it's no different.

Nintendo Launches E3 Miiverse Communities

Use your happy face

With Nintendo opting to go its own way with its E3 messaging this year, moving away from a live conference in favour of a special Nintendo Direct broadcast and other promised snippets of footage and news, it's naturally taken to its bespoke social network on Wii U to spread the word further. Announcements have appeared (from...

Weirdness: A Wii U Gamer's Miiverse Journey Through Super Metroid

A Wii U Gamer's Miiverse Journey Through Super Metroid

A long and confusing road

A little while ago we posed a question — is Super Metroid too taxing for today's gamers? This was based on the explosion of confused Miiverse posts once the title arrived for $0.30/€0.30/£0.30 on the Wii U eShop, as some gamers grappled with a retro title that resolutely refused to guide them through each step. One...

Les Européens ne sont pas contents

As we're sure many of you are already aware, Super Metroid is now available on the Wii U Virtual Console in North America and Europe for the low low price of 30c/30p, although both versions are not the same. While the North American edition is playable in full 60Hz as it was intended, European gamers have been...

This "Printing Miiverse" Art Show Gives a Glimpse of the Network's Potential

Non-profit gallery will be streamed online

Nintendo seems to be rather proud of Miiverse, and rightly so, recently launching a browser-based beta version of the social network — miiverse.nintendo.net — and making it clear that the platform would play a major role in advertising and building awareness of the Wii U. Since its launch plenty of...

Miiverse Now Available In Your Browser

Social network makes the leap off of Wii U

Miiverse, that perfectly civil, friendly and downright jovial Wii U utopia of a social network, which doubles as a place to discover just how much patience people have for creating incredibly elaborate works of art using two colors and a stylus, is now available in your browser.

Eiji Aonuma Takes To Link To The Past Miiverse To Discuss Zelda 3DS

Special mention for Oracle of Seasons and Ages, too

During yesterday's Nintendo Direct, Nintendo landed an unexpected surprise on us towards the end of the broadcast. We were told to expect a new Zelda game for the 3DS before the end of the year — the kind of megaton announcement that would normally wait until E3. Not only that, but we weren't...

Latest Miiverse Update Continues to Improve the Platform

Socialising on Wii U gets easier and quicker

While not a system-seller in its own right, Miiverse on Wii U is, for some at least, a major part of the console that can absorb as much time as some games. By blending popular features from a number of social platforms with its own "communities" structure, Nintendo has setup a thoroughly decent and...
