This Week’s Nintendo Download Is Turbo-Tastic

by Peter Paltridgeon July 14, 2016
This week in the Nintendo Download, Monster Hunter Generations is finally out (or it will be tomorrow). But the more surprising news is the sudden appearance of TurboGrafx-16 games in the Wii U Virtual Console. It was looking like nothing from that console would ever appear on the Wii U, after many TG-16 titles were […]

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 […]

Post-E3 Breath Of The Wild Revelations

by Peter Paltridgeon June 20, 2016
Nintendo only had one playable game at E3 this year, but they hit a bullseye with one bullet. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was the most popular game on the show floor by far. 150 kiosks were running the game, and despite this, the line to play it stretched throughout the entire […]

E3 2016: It’s Possible To Go Straight To The Final Boss In Zelda: Breath of The Wild

by Peter Paltridgeon June 15, 2016
Speedrunners and other such “game-breaker” enthusiasts have been wondering just how open The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild truly is.

by Peter Paltridgeon June 15, 2016
Zelda fanatics are ecstatic over The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but far less so over recent comments made by Eiji Aonuma, director of the series.
