Feature: A Miiverse Adventure With Mega Man X

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...

Toki Tori 2 Miiverse Drawing Contest Flutters Into Round Two

Review: Mutant Mudds Deluxe (Wii U eShop)

Mutant Mudds Deluxe (Wii U eShop)

A muddled experience

In early 2012, Mutant Mudds hit the 3DS eShop, and we loved it. Its faux-retro sprite design and satisfying difficulty made for a great gaming experience, as did the fact that it actually used the 3D effect in an interesting way; our hero Max could leap forward and backward through the background layers in order progress through...

Review: Spelunker (Wii U eShop / NES)

Spelunker (Wii U eShop / NES)

Deeper underground

Ask a few western gamers about Spelunker and it's likely that barely any of them will have heard of the game, despite it being originally developed by an American company. Ask Japanese gamers, though, and it's a completely different story — the game is very well known to them and is joked about online all the time, though not...

Mega Man 4 (Wii U eShop / NES)

The Blue Bomber jumps onto the GamePad

In 1991 the world got a fourth entry in what had quickly shaped up to be one of the NES's most popular series. This game was Mega Man 4, and expectations were high. After all, the first game laid down a solid — if static — template that resonated very well with gamers, the second game refined the formula...

Review: Yoshi (Wii U eShop / NES)

Yoshi (Wii U eShop / NES)

Not very eggciting

With so many tile-matching games available on so many different gaming platforms, it’s surprising to see that, despite the Wii U launching six months ago, there have yet to be any released on the new console. Nintendo has finally decided to fill that empty gap with the Virtual Console release of Yoshi, an NES era puzzler...
