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.

Never Stop Adding Lyrics To The Legend Of Zelda Theme

Animation Domination High-Def takes a stab at adding words The Legend of Zelda‘s classic overworld theme, and while it covers all the bases — mute hero, chickens, smashing pots, side quests — it’s been done much better.


Players Turn Team Fortress 2 Into Splatoon

I suppose it was inevitable, wasn’t it? Pretty much since day one, comparisons between Wii U-exclusive Splatoon and early Team Fortress 2 have run thick, like wet paint or a rotting bucket of squid chum.


Mario In Unreal Engine 4 Just Ain't Right

Video: Would you look at that. Turns out the uncanny valley works both ways. YouTube’s Aryoksini, the guy behind the Blender version of Super Mario 64 from last year, demonstrates why we like our Mario games in colourful cartoon kingdoms and not realistic office buildings, kitchenettes and museums.


Nintendo America Boss Teases Release Of Smaller New 3DS

The smaller version of Nintendo’s more powerful New 3DS line of handhelds may finally make it to North America, thanks to popular demand. At least that’s what we think Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime was hinting to me when we discussed Nintendo’s most capable handheld at E3.
