  • Feature Lessons From a Gaming Expo

    A rite of passage

    For many gamers, this hobby of ours is about more than just buying and playing games, but also about hitting up expos, which are havens of gaming and related shenanigans. We’ve spent the past few days soaking up the sights and sounds at the Eurogamer Expo in London, and we’ve had some important gaming life lessons reaffirmed in...

  • News Wii U and 3DS Pre-Paid eShop Cards Spotted

    DSiWare and WiiWare left out of the party

    The arrival of the 3DS eShop saw Nintendo move away from Nintendo Points, the custom currency that, in the opinion of some, was far from ideal. The 3DS eShop has continued to evolve and now allows top-ups of a download's value, for example, so the days of buying a block of 1000 points when you only need 100...

  • News Cloudberry Kingdom Goes Hardcore In This New Trailer

    You can change the difficulty, thankfully

    Cloudberry Kingdom is one of the few eShop titles that's set to launch this November for Wii U. While most of the game is still shrouded in mystery, its stand-out feature is its use of procedurally generated levels, which scales the difficulty to the player's level of skill. Of course, this means that...

  • News Sonic Racing Transformed Frame Rate Issues Have Been Solved

    Sumo Digital confirms that Wii U frame rate issues have been fixed

    A couple of days ago, our very own Thomas Whitehead went hands-on with a handful of third-party Wii U titles, including Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. Aside from a few GamePad-specific complaints, Thomas' biggest problem with Sonic's new outing was the game's awful frame...

  • News GAME: UK Pre-Orders Are "Exceeding Expectations"

    Premium systems in demand

    With Wii U's arrival just two months away, or slightly less if you're fortunate enough to be in North America, there's plenty of focus on whether the system is going to sell well and generate buzz at launch. There's little doubt that Nintendo's succeeded in North America with most retailers, notably GameStop, closing Wii U...

  • News Frozenbyte: "The Wii U eShop is Very Promising"

    Affordable updates and certification on the wish list

    Of all we've heard and seen of Wii U, the eShop remains the biggest mystery. We may have an idea of some of the launch window titles, but we know little of what it'll look like or what additional content it'll feature, beyond games. We do know of Nintendo learning from some past mistakes,...

    Supply chain is "solid", lessons learned from past launches
