by Peter Paltridgeon July 8, 2016
This week, the Nintendo Download is mostly sleepy, but after several weeks of megaton releases, it’s earned the rest. The new offerings this week aren’t much, but they’re something.

Pop Stars Vs. Monsters In This Week’s Nintendo Download

by Peter Paltridgeon June 23, 2016
If you had asked anybody months ago about this particular week in the Nintendo Download, was anybody expecting Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE to decimate Keiji Inafune’s Mighty No. 9 in reviews? Because that’s what happened. The long-awaited return of Mega Man’s creator was largely derided as mediocre, while this weird brightly-colored dance-mashup starring Fire Emblem […]

E3 2016: BoxBoy Is Back!

by Peter Paltridgeon June 16, 2016
One year ago Nintendo released a charming little puzzler called BoxBoy! for 3DS. You played as a literal box with eyes, who had the ability to spring other boxes out of itself and chain them together to get past obstacles. It’s a simple concept, with simple graphics (they could have been easily done on an […]
