Did You Know Gaming? Takes to the Skies With Star Fox

A nice warm-up for E3

There are some titles that we know - courtesy of release-windows, common sense or Nintendo confirmation - will be shown at E3; one of these is Star Fox for Wii U. Hopefully we'll learn of a release window, a final name and get a good look at what's come of Shigeru Miyamoto's desire to produce a cinematic, innovative GamePad...

​There's Already a Splatoon Inspired Minecraft Mod

Where there's a will, there's a way

It seems like there's a mod for just about anything in Minecraft. The extremely open ended and modular nature of the core game leaves the door wide open for just about any type of game to be created within it, from platformers to shooters to racers. Granted, there's usually an absurd amount of complicated...

Video: We Get Artistically Destructive With The Splatoon Inkbrush

We Get Artistically Destructive With The Splatoon Inkbrush

Not exactly Art Academy

It may be ink that we're splatting around in Splatoon, but with those bright colours and various paintball references it certainly has a painterly quality. The new Inkbrush certainly plays into that, which brings its own spin to the 'Roller' set of weapons. It can be used for quickly inking territory, but in much narrower...

Editorial: Nintendo's Approach is Often Peculiar, Yet That's An Enduring Strength

Nintendo's Approach is Often Peculiar, Yet That's An Enduring Strength

Still treats video games as irreverent play-things

A thought has been rumbling around this writer's mind for the past few days - Nintendo is weird. It really is. Writing about the company on a daily basis brings on a permanent state of double taking, and it's when looking outside of the big N bubble it becomes clear how peculiar it is. It simply...

Review: Mega Man Battle Network 4 Red Sun & Blue Moon (Wii U eShop / Game Boy Advance)

Mega Man Battle Network 4 Red Sun & Blue Moon (Wii U eShop / Game Boy Advance)

Nothin' but net

In every long running game series, there's always "that" one game which greatly splits the fanbase. Usually due to a major overhaul of an aspect that flies in the face of series tradition, these black sheep games typically are wrongfully seen as a bad or disappointing release simply because they did something different. Mega Man...

Splatoon Practically Sold Out at Launch in Japan, With Over 100,000 amiibo Also Sold

It's popular, then

Since release there's been a strong sense that Splatoon has been a hit launch on Wii U, and evidence is starting to support that assumption. There'd been social media chatter of stock being low in Japan, for example, and earlier this week it emerged that it'd stormed to top spot in the Japanese charts. We now have a clearer...

Review: Rival Turf! (Wii U eShop / Super Nintendo)

Rival Turf! (Wii U eShop / Super Nintendo)

Pulls too many punches

Double Dragon may have kicked off the beat 'em up craze, but Capcom's Final Fight was the game that came out of nowhere and quickly became the measuring stick for the genre. So when Capcom had to cut the beloved cooperative play mode from the Super NES home version of the game, Japanese developer Jaleco decided that it would...

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate June DLC Brings Animal Crossing, Devil May Cry and Awesome Designs

Oh my…

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is an enormous game, to a daunting degree. It keeps getting bigger thanks to free DLC, too - Capcom's playing the role of the devil to our Homer: "you want more donuts, have all the donuts you can eat!" Oh, we'll keep eating. That daft intro aside, Capcom has announced the details of the June DLC - they're...
