Pikmin, Yoshi, Mario And More From The Latest Nintendo Direct

by Peter Paltridgeon September 1, 2016
A new Nintendo Direct livestreamed out of the Treehouse today, focusing entirely on the 3DS and filling in some holes in its current release schedule. Unfortunately there’s a lot of wheel-spinning involved here. Half of these games are retreads of Wii U games, when they’re not additions to existing games. We know Nintendo is saving […]

by Peter Paltridgeon August 29, 2016
Nintendo made the surprise announcement of a new design (paint-wise) for the New Nintendo 3DS this morning.

With the advent of home computers powerful enough for photorealistic rendering, 3D printing and more, spotting the difference between a real leaked console model and a hoax gets harder and harder.

Call Of Duty Presents: Zombies In Spaceland

Activision has taken the cover off the theme for the Zombies mode in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, and it’s…interesting, to say the least. They told us the final zombie-related chapter in Black Ops 3 would be closing up the storyline to restart anew for…something. Are you prepared for the something? While the Zombies mode […]

New Pokemon Go Glitch Lets Players Permanently Dominate Gyms

by Peter Paltridgeon August 15, 2016
A pretty bad glitch has been discovered in the latest build of Pokemon Go.

by Peter Paltridgeon August 11, 2016
Today Nintendo and The Pokemon Company introduced the bad guys of Pokemon Sun and Moon: Team Skull! If you think that name’s trying a bit too hard, check out how they dress!
