Pokémon Go Could Be Amazing (And Maybe A Bit Dangerous)

The words “alternate reality game” were the last thing some hardcore Pokémon fans wanted to hear last night. I understand why. It’s a spin-off. It’s on mobile. You can’t play from the comfort of your own home. And yet! Pokémon Go could be the shot in the arm that the monster-collecting series needs.

Tribute Thursday: Wii Fit

With the Wii U getting the biggest releases this week (Armikrog and Super Mario Maker) it’s time to look back at one of the biggest hits of all time for Nintendo. And no, I’m not paying tribute to Super Mario Bros.

It’s time to look back at what was one of the best selling games in Australia for months on end. The game that everyone apparently bought but barely played.

Let’s get fit. Wii Fit.

Take A Break From Metal Gear And Play Nova-111

Have you heard of Nova-111? I barely had, but now I must show it to you. It’s a wonderful surprise of a video game. It’s partially turn-based, partially real-time. It’s action mixed with puzzles. Its on Xbox One, PS4, PS3, Vita, PC and Mac and is coming to Wii U. It just came out. It’s terrific.

Kerbal Space Program Is Landing On The Wii U

And it might actually turn out to be the best console version.

Actually, Mario Is Missing Was Awesome

Praising Mario is Missing is no way to impress someone with your gaming acumen. But it’s true; I thoroughly enjoyed Mario Is Missing as a young kid. My father didn’t know much about video games, but he did know that ‘Mario’ was a signifier of quality (or, at least, it should have been). So he bought me Mario Is Missing for my birthday, and I popped it into my Super Nintendo, expecting to see the sequel to Super Mario World.

Mighty No. 9 Confirms Rumours Of Delay

Since late July, there have been rumours circulating of an impending release date change for the Mega Man-like Mighty No. 9. Today, developer Comcept has confirmed a delay in an update sent out to the game’s Kickstarter backers.

Dragon Quest XI Announced For PS4 And 3DS 

The eagerly awaited follow-up to Dragon Quest X is headed to the PlayStation 4 and the Nintendo 3DS.

Nintendo Will Be Shutting Down Wii U TVii Next Month

While it never made it to Australia, after nearly three years of letting Wii U owners in the US and Japan awkwardly interact with cable and streaming video services via their game pads, Nintendo TVii is officially going off the air on 11 August. Everyone try to stay calm.

Is This The Best Thing You Can Do With A NES Cartridge?

You can’t sanction the mutilation of a perfectly good NES cartridge… unless the game is of questionable entertainment quality. Take 1989’s Championship Bowling. Even with its tantalising promise of four player action, I think we can find a better use for it. How about the best hard drive enclosure ever? Yes please.
