Should Nintendo Release a Stand-Alone Virtual Console?

While most people are interested in what the NX actually turns out to be, there’s another topic I’ve been thinking about a lot recently. Would it make sense for Nintendo to release a stand-alone Virtual Console? Ever since the Wii came out, Nintendo has started to capitalize even more on its own past and released […]

Wii-rd Games: Tomena Sanner

The Wii was a hugely successful system for which many great mainstream games were created. But for each Mario Galaxy or Wii Sports, there were a dozen weird little titles that didn’t have a broad appeal and didn’t get the recognition they deserved. That’s what this little series called “Wii-rd Games” is all about: The […]

Review: Super Mario Bros. Movie

Of all the movies that I watched religiously during my childhood, the Super Mario Bros. movie always stood out a bit. It was dark, had a very distinct look and something about it just didn’t feel right. Even back then, I never considered it to be a Super Mario movie, but more of a science-fiction […]

First-Person-Shooter, RPGs, strategy, simulation, idle games: The number of genres striving right now is amazing. It almost seems like there’s something for everybody.

While these franchises certainly are a good match for those platforms, there are other franchises I would love to […]

Review: Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water

Back in the PS2-days, the Fatal Frame franchise (or Project Zero, as it’s called in Europe) has been one of my favourite series around. The console had plenty of good horror games to choose from, but Fatal frame brought some very unique things to the table. First of all, you were playing as a schoolgirl, […]

Getting into “The Legend of Zelda” – Part 2

After getting those three medallions, it’s finally time to venture on and get that legendary Master Sword! So I make my way down that mountain I had so much trouble climbing up just an hour before and head into a creepy forest, in order to find the sword and rescue Zelda! And it wasn’t all […]

Getting into “The Legend of Zelda” – Part 1

Over the past couple of years I have tried several times to get into the “Zelda”-franchise. While I played and finished “Twilight Princess” back when the Nintendo Wii launched, I never was able to really enjoy other games in the franchise. I always thought my enjoyment of “Twilight Princess” was mostly due to it being […]
