"But I still haven't found what I'm looking for..."

In November 2011 we brought you a sample of the most bizarre Nintendo Life search results, and now we're over halfway through the year (and our current editor ready to leave) we think it's time to dive into the log files again to bring you more oddball ideas that have all brought users to Nintendo...

Elsewhere on the site Amazon lists the white console with no price...

Mario and Kim Cattrall Star in New 3DS Advert

Run Mario run!

Advertising in video games is a funny business, and we've seen Nintendo hook up with a lot of different celebrities to promote Wii, DS and 3DS in recent years. The latest team up is with Kim Cattrall, of Sex and the City fame, who appears to promote Super Mario 3D Land and, sorry North Americans, the Ice White 3DS system. It's a...

If Mario vs. King Kong was Created Today

On Vita, no less

It's often the subject of chilled-out debate amongst gamers: what if Mario had used a gun like Nintendo originally planned? What if Samus Aran had been a man? What if Kirby was made out of string? Well, not so much the last one any more. Still, it can be entertaining to think about some of our favourite games and wonder what they...

Real Life Skyward Sword Controls Don't Work

Though kids have better luck

We rather liked The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, stating that it's 'as good a Zelda game as we've ever played' in our perfect 10 review. We simply felt that everything blended beautifully, including the immersive MotionPlus controls. Not everyone felt the same about the control scheme, however, with some complaining...

Wait, There's a Spectrum Emulator in GoldenEye?

Secret agent

Of all the cheats and secrets tucked away in GoldenEye 007, we never suspected Rare's N64 classic harboured a fully functioning ZX Spectrum 48k emulator. Rare began a coding experiment to see if the N64 could support a Spectrum emulator, even embedding old-school Rare games Sabre Wulf, Jetpac and more in the code. Clearly the experiment...

There's a Chuck E. Cheese Game Coming to DSiWare

What more can we say?

"Chuck E. Cheese's Arcade Room is a fun and exciting video game that digitally recreates the magic of being at a Chuck E. Cheese's!" We'd love to leave the story at that, to be honest. Chuck E.

Capcom Japan Reprints GameCube Game Gotcha Force

No, we don't know either

Think back to Capcom's GameCube classics: Viewtiful Joe. Killer 7. Resident Evil 4. Good games, one and all, making it all the more baffling the publisher has reprinted Gotcha Force for Japan. The 2003 action RPG didn't review too well and never flourished into a full-on franchise, but Capcom's giving it another shot with a...
