It was just a few weeks ago that an exploit in the 3DS was revealed, turning the nearly forgotten Cubic Ninja into a the key to unlocking the 3DS’ secrets – at least as far as homebrewed software is concerned. It resulted in copies of the game being sold for inflated prices all over the world. And now, with a simple update, Nintendo’s fixed at least one of the three exploits used in the hack.
You think of games from The Legend Of Zelda franchise, and your mind flashes towards the classics. Games such as The Ocarina of Time, The Wind Waker and the very first game in that series. Amongst all of those games however, Majora’s mask is possibly the weirdest Zelda game ever made. And that trippy black sheep of the family is making a comeback.
There’s a new, new, new Nintendo 3DS on the way. And seeing as how my first-gen version is starting to look tiny and the paint is literally peeling off of the D-pad, I want it. Like other suckers consumers, I’m going to have to wait a while to get my hands on it, as the triple-newDS is launching first in Japan before it heads West in 2015. And you can thank a slower hardware market for that.
I have a terrible fondness for Super Smash Bros. Though it seems on its surface to be a terribly casual sort of fighting game, the cutesy melting pugilism pot of Nintendo’s favoured mascots belies its depth as a fighter. The newest version comes to the 3DS next month, with a Wii U version to follow in the future. How’s the handheld version of the game?
What are you plans for the weekend? Don’t think you can fool me, I know you aren’t really going out to that big party with all of your friends! You’ll probably be at home alone like me playing whatever makes you happy. That’ll be Destiny for most this weekend. Oh, you don’t have it? There there, neither do I. If you’re a fan of Nintendo and have nothing better to do, they will be doing an 8 hour stream this weekend which will include footage of the final version of Super Smash Bros.
You remember when Yu Gi Oh! 5D’s entire premise of card games on motorcycles was considered the most stupid thing to ever hit the Duel Monsters franchise? Trust me, the Zexal 3DS game is far, far worse.
Nintendo's 3DS just keeps selling like hot cakes, and if the E3 population is anything to go by, every gamer and his mother has one. Now they have revealed an all new IP, and it will make many of you ridiculously happy.
I have a weird relationship with Mario sports games. Is videogame golf more or less of an experience when Mario is involved? I say he doesn’t add much to any sports game and rest assured, the same is true in World Tour. It might actually be for the better.
Professor Layton and Phoenix Wright are both fantastic and popular franchises in their own rights - with quirky personalities and interesting puzzling/logic problems, they are must haves on the 3DS. Now, they've been paired up to bring twice the fun.
Nintendo embraced Unity for the Wii U, announcing at GDC that 50 games were coming to the console via Unity. Now it seems that the ailing console might not be the only platform to benefit from this new partnership.
That's right, you can get the latest and greatest Pokemon game without using Thief. In fact, it is your reward for entering the 3D era. Now maybe Darryn will finally splurge on that 3DSXL to make his tiny hands look even smaller - everyone should catch this deal.
Nintendo spent so much energy focusing on Luigi last year, hoping that shifting attention away from the red brother would have a correlating affect on their bank accounts. Surprising almost no one, it did little to boost the sales of Nintendo games and particularly the Wii U. Now Luigi's year is coming to an end - I wonder what the new year will bring.
On this day of commercially designated romance, we're meant to celebrate our love for that special someone. I don't celebrate it, but Darryn will spend the day rubbing chocolate all over his left hand. So what about our gaming platforms? Do you stick to just one, or are you a true, um, "player"?
