When Mario Kart 64 Comes To Wii U, Something Will Be Missing — Again

by Peter Paltridgeon January 22, 2016
The European version of the Wii U just got Mario Kart 64 on Virtual Console! However, there’s one disappointment. The original release contained a feature that let you save your best record on any track, then play a ghost version of yourself to attempt to beat that record. To this day, the only release of […]

Let It Snow(board) In This Week’s Nintendo Download

by Peter Paltridgeon December 31, 2015
It’s another slow week in the Nintendo Download, with the only notable release being the N64’s 1080 Snowboarding. In addition, the majority of the games on sale are incredibly obscure. And then there’s something called “Molly Maggot.” Not an exciting way to close out 2015. It’s worth noting Europe got Super Mario RPG last week. […]
