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 […]

Virtual Console Gems: Detana!! Twinbee

I’m probably one of the most casual players of Shmups you can imagine. I’m terrible at them, but I love explosions, lightning fast action and a great rock soundtrack blasting out of my speakers. There are loads of games that cater to these exact reasons why I love the genre. And then there’s Detana!! Twinbee. […]

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 […]

Virtual Console Gems: River City Ransom

  When I first heard of River City Ransom, the description alone blew my mind: It’s an NES beat-em-up that features a somewhat open world where you can improve your stats by eating sushi. That sounds pretty amazing, right? The great thing is: you can get this game right now, since it’s on the Virtual […]

Wii-rd Games: Muscle March

When I started this series of articles, I had a couple of games I really wanted to cover from the very beginning. Muscle March is among these titles and for some very good reasons: It’s probably one of the strangest games I’ve ever played to date and also one of the most interesting games the […]

How can Nintendo keep the Wii U alive?

It’s really not a secret anymore that the Wii U is dying a slow death right now. While there are still some big games coming, like a new Paper Mario and Zelda, the console’s days are numbered. Since Nintendo doesn’t want to produce any big title for the console anymore, here are a few ideas […]

Breath of the Wild got me hyped!

While I was disappointed at first that Nintendo was only going to show the latest The Legend of Zelda game at E3, I must admit that what has been shown of the game has made me excited. That’s exceptional in and of itself, since I’m not a huge Zelda fan, and I still have a […]

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 […]

5 franchises Nintendo needs to bring to mobile devices

  Nintendo is focusing more and more on Apps for Smartphones and tablets. In a recent business briefing, they announced that Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem are coming to these platforms as Free 2 Play games. While these franchises certainly are a good match for those platforms, there are other franchises I would love to […]
