The Nintendo Switch – Fears, Expectations and Hope

Over the past few weeks, Nintendo has finally given us the details about the upcoming console, the Switch. While I pre-ordered my console back when the first trailer was released, I was anxious to see what Nintendo would offer in terms of actual game announcements. After the reveal in January, I gave myself some time […]

Why the 3DS-Direct was a let-down

I love the idea behind the Nintendo Directs: A videogame company produces a video to talk directly to the fans. It’s something more companies could try to do instead of doing press events that can be quite boring. But very often, these Nintendo Directs are a disappointment and the last one was the biggest let-down […]

Review: Another Metroid 2 Remake

I’ve been talking a lot about Metroid these past few weeks. That’s mostly because Nintendo does not seem to care all that much about the franchise, even though they are releasing Metroid Prime: Federation Force, a game that got a lot of heat for being untraditional, and including new Metroid-themed items in Miitomo, which actually […]

Retro-Review: Metroid Fusion

  With Metroid’s 30 Birthday happening this year, it feels like the perfect opportunity to revisit the games that made this franchise so great and maybe play some games that I’ve never completed. Metroid Fusion is one of those games: I tried several times to play it, but never managed to reach the end. This […]

Pokémon Go: My personal trainer

I’ve been always wanting to get more fit. While I’m not overweight, I still have a couple of kilos too much on the scale, so I try and move more. Pokémon Go has been a great help in that respect, as it helps me to move more and for a longer time. Right now, I’m […]

Will the NX replace the 3DS too?

When the recent rumours surrounding the Nintendo NX hit the scene a couple of day ago, I took extra care to not react to it too much. Rumours are rumours after all, even if Eurogamer seems to be very confident about them. Since I had some time to reflect on them, I want to share […]

Metroid: A Love Letter

Metroid was one of the last Nintendo-franchises that I discovered for myself. Back when I got my Gamecube, I found Metroid Prime used for cheap and since I had little money back then, I added it to my Gamecube collection, which at that time only consisted of StarFox Adventures and Resident Evil. It quickly became […]

Wii-rd Games: LIT

The Wiiware service was pretty overlooked during the last generation. It’s not a big surprise, considering how well supported XBLA and PSN were at the time. That doesn’t mean there weren’t any interesting games available on Wiiware though. I already covered a couple of them here and LIT is another game for the service that shows just how creative some devs […]

First Impressions: Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE

It’s concerning that besides a couple of digital releases, the Wii U does not receive any support anymore. Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE is one of the few games that make 2016 a worthwhile last year for Nintendo’s console, especially for a JRPG fans. I’ve now spent a couple of hours with the game and I […]
