Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam Review

Game Name: Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam Developer:  Alpha Dream Publisher:  Nintendo Platform: Nintendo 3DS Release Date: 1/22/2016 Price: $39.99/£27.80 Genre: Action, Role-Playing ESRB Rating: E

A download code for the game was provided by the publisher for this review.

AlphaDream’s previous title Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, released in a very crowded year of Mario-related titles, was a huge breath of fresh air for a series that started to feel a bit stale. That twist on the formula of offering the fully-realized cartoony RPG experience that began way back with the mythical Super Mario RPG cross focused 2D-platformer sequences made for a full menu of dynamic [...]

Nintendo in partnership with mobile developer Niantic Inc. will be releasing Pokémon GO in early 2016 for both iOS and Android users. The app will allow players to catch, train, battle, and even trade their Pokémon with others across the world. It utilizes GPS technology to place unique specimens in areas closest to the player and all over the world.

Players can explore their neighborhoods and communities to find unique Pokémon. They then can use poke balls to capture them and begin training. This is an incredible experience for fans as it is the first game to allow an open-world version of gameplay. Many have been [...]

Should Nintendo Get Out Of the Home Console Game?

I’m someone who grew up with Nintendo. My first home console was the NES, and my first portable was the original Gameboy. But with each successive console generation, the magic that the big N once held for me began to vanish. The company that once played host to great developers like Square Soft, Capcom, and more began to fold in on itself, creating a home console environment that more or less told gamers: “Do you love our first-party properties? Because if you don’t, then we haven’t got squat for you here.” And despite being a trend that started nearly two decades ago with the Nintendo 64, to this day Nintendo has coasted along on the secure wave of [...]

UPDATED: Nintendo Wins 3DS Patent Case

Last week California Judge Saundra Armstrong threw out a patent infringement claim leveled against Nintendo by Quintal Research Group, Inc. The judge had found that eight of Nintendo’s various handheld gaming systems, including the 3DS, DSi, and Gameboy Advance, did not violate any patents held by Quintal. For these reasons, Judge Armstrong dismissed the case.

“We are very pleased to have this case dismissed,” said Devon Pritchard, Nintendo of America’s General Counsel and Senior Vice President of Business Affairs. “The result in this case continues to prove that Nintendo will vigorously defend its innovations against patent lawsuits and will not pay to settle cases [...]

Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Now on Wii U

It’s official: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is now on the Nintendo Wii U.

Nintendo’s latest announcement of new games that came to the Nintendo eShop this week included the critically acclaimed title, which is making its debut on Wii U today. Once again, players can set off on their epic journey through time to stop Ganondorf and save the Kingdom of Hyrule — and by extension the world — from disaster and evil.

Initial in-game shots taken from the game seems to show that there has been no loss in quality for this port of Ocarina of Time to the Wii U. You can judge for yourself below:

Could this be the Shortest Console Generation Yet?

Right now we’re all enjoying what is the most exciting part of any console generation – we’ve got all the launch titles out of the way, and cross-generation games are slowly disappearing.  So the next few years should be exciting and full of surprises, right? But what if there aren’t many years to come before we see a new set of consoles?

We all know how long the last one went on for. I managed to own all three of the consoles multiple times within its lifespan. Hundreds of great games and several iterations of consoles were released.  The gaming landscape is vastly different this time around though, and an eight-year console cycle is not feasible for [...]

The Next Metroid Game is Likely Coming to Nintendo NX

During an interview with Eurogamer, Kensuke Tanabe (Series Producer for Metroid Prime) explained that a new Metroid Prime game would likely be released on the Nintendo NX console.

“If we started for Wii U now, it would likely take three years or so. So it would likely now be on Nintendo’s NX console. It’s a long time but it would need to include a lot of content, which would take a lot of work on the development side”

This will come as unwelcome news for a lot of Wii U fans, especially after such a disappointing Nintendo conference at E3. With Nintendo NX not being unveiled until 2016, it is looking more like a new dedicated console rather than a side [...]
