Did You Know Gaming Tackles Donkey Kong Once Again

The Rare years

Rare's Donkey Kong titles have recently been making their way onto the Wii U eShop in Europe — and hopefully will do so soon in North America — making it a good time to look back on the franchise. Whether that timing was part of its consideration or not, we do have Did You Know Gaming returning to the DK IP in its latest video...

Review: Ballpoint Universe: Infinite (Wii U eShop)

Ballpoint Universe: Infinite (Wii U eShop)

Scribbles and bits

Creatively, the world of Ballpoint Universe: Infinite possesses an enchantingly bizarre kind of beauty that sets it apart. It truly feels like a tribute to the underappreciated act of doodling, where both mind and pen wander to create wide, rolling swaths of who knows what. This is only the visual part of Ballpoint’s design,...

Nintendo 64x64: Jet Force Gemini

Jet Force Gemini

Rare again with another original title: wonderful visuals, addictive gameplay and atmospheric soundtrack. You're the JFG team, attempting to thwart antagonist Mizar and his insect army. As a third-person shooter, it showed another string to Rare's bow and was very popular. Personally, a least-favourite Rare N64 outing, having awkward controls and...

Use a 'Platinum Code' to Unlock Bayonetta and Co in The Wonderful 101

Move over, Konami

We're big fans of Platinum Games here at Nintendo Life, even to the point that we praised its Wii U legacy just recently. While many may be enjoying its latest release — Bayonetta 2 — on Wii U, some cool unlockable details for The Wonderful 101 may have some going back to the bonkers-yet-brilliant action game released in 2013...

News: Nintendo Outlines Generous eShop Publication Policies

Nintendo Outlines Generous eShop Publication Policies

In theory opens the door to games like Binding of Isaac

It's no secret to those that frequent these pages or that browse the 3DS and Wii U eShop stores on a regular basis, but Nintendo is now open and supportive of all kinds of developers. That's come about through a consistent loosening of its publication rules, making it easier for studios and...

Nintendo 64x64: Turok: Rage Wars

Turok: Rage Wars

Amongst four Turok games, Rage Wars is only for the purest Turok fan. Essentially, it’s a multiplayer-only game: lots of game options, characters, weapons and levels make for great battling. Single-player is weak compared to canonical Turok games, with its most redeeming feature being Co-op mode; although, subsequently bettered by Perfect Dark...

Review: Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures 2 (Wii U)

Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures 2 (Wii U)

Pac is back! .....again

There's a moment during the opening cutscene of Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures 2 where the series' villain Lord Betrayus delights over his giant robot being ready to ''unleash on Pacopolis. Again!'' It's just a throwaway joke that's fitting of the Saturday morning cartoon vibe, but while it may have raised a slight smile...

Step by glorious step

Nintendo's Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Nintendo Direct delivered what it promised — 50 'Must-See Things'. In fairness to the 'New Things' wording deployed on multiple occasions by Nintendo of America, meanwhile, it wasn't far off that target either, even if that would require a little more slack and an absence of cynicism...
