Look I'm not saying the Nintendo SNES is absolutely going to happen. I'm saying it should happen.

It should happen because it's greatest console of all time, and the market for something like this clearly exists.

It should happen because I think about the games Nintendo could put on a device like this and I literally get giddy inside.

So I decided to make a list.

It's not uncommon for home and handheld consoles to get a drastic makeover in the years after their launch. Sometimes even after they have begun playing second fiddle to a new more powerful sibling.

Given how insanely popular they were before Christmas, it was only a matter of time before Target turned to their eBay store and offered another 20% off storewide sale.

Thing is, now we've got one. And the good news: it applies to games and consoles.

Something's going down at Target. Either they're really getting out of games and consoles and just having a massive firesale, or they just really want drive traffic to their eBay store.

Either way, out of all the deals that have gone up these are by far and away the most insane. Let's begin.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
