The feel is instantly recognisable. Whether the phrase "beat-em up" takes you back to Castle Crashers, The Death and Return of Superman, or the original Double Dragon, Wulverblade will channel your nostalgia and love for those games, but in a way that remains distinctly its own.
The biggest week in the 2017 gaming calendar is finally here. On top of all the indies that are launching just ahead of PAX, October 27 brings The Big Three: a new Mario game in the form of Super Mario Odyssey, Bethesda's ode to Nazi-killing in Wolfenstein 2, and the return of Assassin's Creed. And Destiny 2 finally comes to PC. Strap in, people.
Earlier this month Nyko released its Portable Switch Docking Kit, a $US50 ($64) alternative to Nintendo's official $US90 ($115) dock.
Mine works great, and charging the Switch in tabletop mode is very handy, but a handful of users are reporting the device has killed their console's charging port.
"Jump Up, Super Star!" is both incredibly corny and hard not to love. Nintendo is apparently in love with it as well, having not only made it available to download on iTunes but also gone to the trouble of printing all the words to it on the inside of the game's case.
The latest system software update for the Nintendo Switch added the ability to capture gameplay video, but don't get too excited. It only works in four games currently, and the results aren't great.
Over 3000 years ago, a man named Homer wrote “It is hateful to me to tell a story over again, when it has been well told” in his book The Odyssey. The story of Mario, Bowser and Princess Peach has been well told, multiple times, over the last 30 years. On October 27, we get to hear that story again.
Right here is where you can find the absolute cheapest copies of Super Mario Odyssey in Australia.
If you've ever seen an original Famicom cartridge, you probably wondered what those little holes on the top edge were. Were they ventilation holes? Part of the manufacturing process? Something to put string in? Nintendo has reportedly explained their meaning, saying they're nothing more than a design element.
The recently-released Super Nintendo Classic Edition is a fantastic way to replay 21 of your favourite 16-bit SNES games -- but what about all the other classics that Nintendo excluded? If you've still got a stack of old Super Nintendo carts at home, the Analogue Super Nt should let you enjoy them on the fancy hi-def TV you upgraded to years ago.
Briefly: The side-scrolling, hack-and-slash, meta game Icey is headed to the Nintendo Switch. The Chinese indie was originally released on Steam last spring before getting ported to PS4. Its a lot weirder than it first appears and definitely worth a second look. Icey's also getting a physical release.
2017 has changed Mario for me, and not just because he might be mind-controlling poor Goombas. Nintendo has told me too much about Mario, and now I can't look at him the same way again.
Nintendo Switch owners really care about the icons that show up on their home screens, making so much noise that many developers are swapping them out. But not German indie studio Bplus. It's asking fans to choose Puzzle Box Maker's icon ahead of the game's November release.
