At yesterday's DICE Awards, Nintendo cleaned up. The Kyoto-based game company didn't send their development teams to the ceremony. Instead, it was up to one man to collect all the trophies. His name is Nintendo Guy.
Payday 2 arrived on the Switch this week, nearly five years after its initial release on PC. A lot of questions have already been raised about how it will be missing a large chunk of the additional content that has come out since 2013, but a bigger head-scratcher remains the lack of proper voice chat.
Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
Luigi is finally in Super Mario Odyssey as part of the game's new Balloon World update which went live this week. What strange wind brought him and his balloons to New Donk City is anybody's guess, but while he's around he has some thoughts to share about Mario's clothes.
It can be frustrating to be a fan of video game. The game you've waited years for has been delayed a second time. The series you love is being ruined by its publisher. The patch the developer just issued nerfed your favourite character. These problems do not apply in the world of Kirby, the Nintendo series that must be the least frustrating thing to be into in all of video games.
The gaming industry has come a long way when it comes to offering consumer refunds, particularly in Australia. But as far as Norway is concerned, the industry hasn't gone far enough - Nintendo in particular.
Beautiful adventure game Rime wasn't quite as beautiful when it was released on the Nintendo Switch back in November, suffering from severe frame rate drops, bad pop-in, faded colours and poor lower resolution textures. Yesterday's 1.02 update doesn't fix everything, but the game looks and plays so much better now.
We've seen artificial intelligence learn how to play games such as Super Mario World and Mario Kart, but Mario 64 is a whole different animal.
Nintendo Labo display kits are starting to appear in Japanese retail shops. The boxes themselves are good sized, which isn't that surprising if you've seen the cardboard Nintendo Labo sheets.
Having had tremendous success with its trio of The Legend of Zelda reference books, Dark Horse Publishing sets its sights on the Mushroom Kingdom, chronicling three decades of Nintendo gaming in the Super Mario Encyclopedia.
Super Mario Bros. speedruns are almost as perfect as humanly possible. The swift sprint through the Mushroom Kingdom has only seen incremental gains over the last few years, with runners besting times by fractions of a second. Runs of the game have become so optimised that it seemed impossible to do any better. Yesterday, a speedrunner pushed the game even further with a new world record run.
This is not a review of Bayonetta. Oh no, my friend. This is something else entirely. Bayonetta - and its sequel Bayonetta 2 - are action video game masterpieces that are out today for the Nintendo Switch. I've been playing them for a couple of days. I asked you (on Twitter!) to ask me anything about the games.
Are you sitting down? I've got something to tell you - something that may shock you. Between the events of the various Donkey Kong games, the Kong family was involved in a bitter and vicious war. Among its many casualties, this war may have claimed the life of a classic Kong character, explaining his disappearance from all future games in the series.
