  • Video The Wii U Difference Campaign Explores Entertainment

    Rufus Hound gets the popcorn

    Earlier this month Nintendo UK employed the services of British comedian Rufus Hound to explain the "Wii U Difference" where he went through the various features of the GamePad, which was lovingly described as "the Wii U's wingman". A couple of weeks later Nintendo released the Hound once more. This time he informed...

  • Weirdness Mann Writes Mario Opera

    A plumber's lament

    Many people would probably be happy in the sole knowledge that they wrote a Mario-themed opera for their grad school thesis, but it wasn’t quite enough for musician Jonathan Mann. He wanted to bring it to the stage, and made his dream come true with a show in New York City. Along with Princess Peach, Bowser, a Toad chorus and...

  • Weirdness Nintendo Releases "Finding Luigi" Parkour Mockumentary

    Luigi, the mythical legend of the streets

    Nintendo's marketing often features sizzle reels, those familiar Mario and Luigi costumes with enormous feed and heads, and plenty of quirky moments that try to emphasize silly fun. What the company perhaps could to more of is off-the-wall content with the potential to go viral, which makes its latest...

  • Weirdness The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is Beaten in Under 20 Minutes

    Cosmo strikes in 19 minutes 15 seconds

    A little while ago we told you about Cosmo Wright, a speedrunner that was recorded explaining, in detail, how to complete Ocarina of Time in 22 minutes. As he admitted himself it wasn't an impeccable run, possibly because he was trying to describe intricate maneuvers while executing them. That run was at a...

  • Video This Exclusive Skylanders Swap Force Footage Shows More Characters in Action

    Family Gamer takes a look

  • Video New Trailer Blasts Away Confusion Over Summer Carnival '92 RECCA

    Bullet heaven?

    It's entirely possible that many saw the arrival of Summer Carnival '92 RECCA in last week's European download update, for the 3DS Virtual Console, and would have been none the wiser on what it actually is. We're currently working on our review, but when explaining that this is actually a shoot-em-‘up, it's understandable that...

  • Weirdness Mike Tyson Plays Punch-Out!! And Takes on His Arch-Nemesis, Glass Joe

    Did he beat Glass f****** Joe?

    A little while ago we brought you some retro news of huge importance that shook the foundations of the NES — Mike Tyson was rubbish at Mike Tyson's Punch Out!!. Here's what he told a charming paparazzi journo that was following him around. "I couldn't even beat Glass f****** Joe. I couldn't beat Glass Joe, you know...

  • Video The Pokémon Game Show Sure Looks Like Fun

    There are some awesome outfits on the scene

    In a number of recent articles we've highlighted the fact that, while Pokémon is hugely popular in the West, its appeal is on a whole different level in Japan.

  • Video The Wii U Difference Ad Campaign Continues With the "eShop Sandwich"

    Nintendo releases the Hound

    A couple of weeks ago Nintendo launched a new Wii U ad campaign to promote the system with a bit of humour, employing UK comic Rufus Hound to explain the Wii U difference with the GamePad.

  • Video This Piano Medley of Zelda, Kingdom Hearts, Pokémon and Mario Soothes the Soul

    Because game music and pianos are cool

    The idea of someone filming themselves playing video game music on an old — and rather out-of-tune — piano may not be overly-exciting on paper, but it's oddly wonderful. We post various videos of game music, animation and live-action fan creations, and the latest to catch our attention has a rather...

  • News Killer Instinct's Music Gets the Cover it Deserves

    Supreme Victory

    We often share some of the best fan content that we find, whether they're short films portraying scenes from games, memorable pieces of art or top-notch music covers.

  • Video A Rundown of the Disney Infinity Wave 1 Toys

    It's a 'Toy Story'

    With the approaching release of Disney Infinity and incoming news of more play-sets (featuring Toy Story and Mickey no less), as well as mobile apps, it’s easy to lose sight of the small action figures at the heart of this new franchise. Of course the game is hugely important, and the quality of experience in both the...

  • Video This Super Metroid Animation is Rather Impressive

    Let's all dream of a full animated series...

    So, things have gone a bit quiet with the Metroid franchise. Metroid: Other M divided fans on the Wii, 3DS ambassadors received a copy of Game Boy Advance title Metroid Fusion, and the IP made an appearance in Nintendo Land. None of those have quite satisfied fans in recent years, it's safe to assume...

    See Samus in full Hollywood glory

    If you're a fan of Metroid and have some spare cash lying around, you may be excited to know that a new Kickstarter project has been opened to fund Metroid: Enemies Within, a ten minute live-action fan film.

  • Video Blacksmith Forges Link's Master Sword

    He had some spare pots that needed smashing...

    The video gaming world has plenty of famous blades wielded by many great heroes, but none can match the Master Sword from The Legend of Zelda.

    There are a lot of them

    Not too long ago Nintendo of America's Dan Adelman stated that 20-30 "new Indie games" could come to the Wii U eShop by the end of the year.

    Educating the masses?

    Nintendo UK has employed the services of stand-up comedian Rufus Hound in order to spread the message of what's so great about its Wii U console, and the first of what will presumably be a series of videos has just hit YouTube.

    It wasn't to be

    Plenty of video game projects come and go while fans are none the wiser, including some for spin-offs and movies that don't make the cut.
