  • News This Video of Kirby Wii Does Not Suck

    Not at all

    Last year's Kirby's Epic Yarn was good and all, but removing the pink puff ball's iconic sucking ability put some gamers off. The video for the new Kirby Wii (tentative title), then, will draw many more players in, featuring as it does a huge amount of sucking. We don't know much about the plot at the moment but we'd imagine something to...

  • News Mario and Sonic Pass the Olympic Games Torch to 3DS

    It burns

    Like watching Magneto and Professor X make friends in X-Men: First Class, it's still strange seeing old rivals Mario and Sonic be all chummy in Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games, though it's nothing compared to seeing Metal Sonic wielding a tennis racquet. The 3DS instalment is due early next year, with the Wii release going for sales gold this Christmas.

  • E3 2011 Ubisoft Announces Rayman Origins for Wii

    The hairy hero returns

  • News Zelda's Timeline is Simple In the Hands of Dr Emmett Brown

    No more confusion!

    Yes, there is a Zelda master timeline document, but members of Nintendo's inner sanctum will ever likely be able to see it.

Of course, it's not the first time that 1980s movies and Zelda..
