No matter what one-liners may have you believe, playtime is never over. So, we've got a great selection of games and electronics gift ideas for Part 3 of this year's holiday gift guide!Read More
Its final smash is just being paralyzingly cute.
Seriously. Just watch this kitten play Wii U's fastest-selling game. It's the day before Thanksgiving weekend. You're not doing anything else anyway.Read More
You know what? No one correct the Rosalina one. That's probably helping.
Serious Nintendophiles and Smash fans—as if those two are ever separate things—prepare to facepalm as a bunch of people still call some of the most popular video game characters of all time by the wrong names! It's OK, though; Smash Bros. for Wii U is now the Wii U's fastest-selling game in the United States!Read More
No matter what the Internet says about it.
We're infinitely bummed out that this video of 10-year-old Karissa wrecking at Smash Bros. is just footage of a marketing stunt, but that doesn't mean it's not great. Without contrary evidence, I probably would've believed it after she almost won the first match, although mostly because Sheik is such a hot pile of bullcrap in this game that it wouldn't surprise me to see an infant win with her.Read More
Get N or get out.
Nintendo is getting aggressive about its release timetable to try to turn things around for the Wii U, and this newly-tweeted schedule for 2014 and 2015 says we'll have both a new Zelda and Star Fox by the end of the year—not to mention the huge list of Wii U games for the first half of 2015 on top of both Smash Bros. games coming out this year. That's certainly one way to turn around the idea that there's no reason to buy your company's console.Read More
And my comparatively long tale about it.
Last night, hundreds of Smash Bros. fans lined up outside of Best Buy to get a chance to play the Wii U version of Smash Bros. before its release this holiday season, and that was just at my local Best Buy. But we were patient, and we waited, and we finally got the chance to play the game. You know what? It was worth it.Read More
In case you needed additional reasons.
Luigi is a one-man kart-racing meme machine in Mario Kart 8. In several slow motion videos and a handful of facial expressions, Mario Kart 8 has taught us more about Luigi's inner badass than any game he's been in so far. As his "death stare" expression very clearly states, the year of Luigi's not over, motherf@$&ers.Read More
Smashers Rejoice! Nintendo Unveils GameCube Controller Adapter for Wii U and Smash Tournament Specifics
Warning, Wii U GamePad. Challenger approaching.
If there was any doubt that Nintendo is trying to recapture their "hardcore" playerbase with their E3 Smash Bros. tournament and the new Smash Bros. games, that doubt has just been removed. They detailed tournament specifics with high profile tournament players, announcers, and a Wii U GameCube controller adapter!Read More
"Win a chance at demoralizing defeat!" —Nintendo (pretty much).
Nintendo is looking for a People's Challenger. No, that's not some kind of communist folk hero (that I know of); it's your chance to play in their Smash Bros. Wii U tournament at E3 on June 10!Read More
It's a secret to everybody.
I was skeptical of the "Nintendo Fusion" console rumors that started circulating earlier in the year, but with the Wii U becoming rapidly eclipsed by newer systems from competitors, I'm coming around to the idea of Nintendo cutting the Wii U's life short. Now there are strong rumors suggesting that Nintendo will show this new console at this year's E3.Read More
