A Japanese Auction Features a Wii Remote Prototype for GameCube

An interesting find in an online auction this week as a rarity has been found from Nintendo. A prototype remote for the Wii made for the GameCube. The remote itself is weird for a couple of reasons, aside from the fact that it’s for a system that has not yet been created. The remote is […]

It’s still over a year away, but for many Wii and Wii U owners, it will be one of the first signs that both consoles will start losing full support.

Nintendo Acknowledge That The Wii U’s Production Is Ending

This is a little story that slipped me by the other day, but one worth noting regardless. With the Nintendo Switch incoming and expected to be the company’s next big console, it is no surprise to find out that Nintendo have officially acknowledged that the Wii U is ceasing production soon. This started with a […]

Stop What You’re Doing And Play The Miitomo App Now

I’ve seen bits of news about Nintendo’s new phone app Miitomo, and Bleeding Cool reported news too. However, I didn’t fully realize how awesome this little app was until this morning. Since then, I haven’t been able to stop playing. You can almost always count on high quality with Nintendo. Most of what they put out is […]

The New Star Fox Zero Trailer Looks Great

As a big Star Fox guy, Star Fox Zero has had me a little nervous. The game, especially early on, didn’t quite look up to what we’d expect out of a 2016 from a major publisher. However, this new trailer that debuted during last night’s Nintendo Direct has me much more at ease. It seems the […]

Project Cars Officially Cancelled For Wii U

A few months ago we heard from Slightly Mad Studios who said that the Wii U version of the game was struggling considerably.

Project Cars Is Struggling To Run On Wii U Meaning It Might Wait For NX

Project Cars is a very good racing sim. Slightly Mad have done very well to bring together a crowd funded project and deliver a beautiful looking game with some serious credentials to it. From what I’ve seen, most people are pleased with what the developer delivered… … well, most people. Speaking on the developer’s forums, […]

Splatoon Director Talks About Why The Game Doesn’t Have Voice Chat

Nintendo have always been pretty iffy on including voice chat in their games. I had many frustrating nights talking to someone in the Mario Kart 8 lobby only to realise you can’t continue your conversation once you are in the race. Perhaps that’s why it shouldn’t be too surprising that Splatoon isn’t going to feature […]

By Sage Ashford Let’s talk about disappointment for a little bit.  Arguably, facing disappointment is one of the major experiences of being a fan in any given medium.  Whether it  be a project (movie, game, comic, or otherwise) that you were interested in that fell through, or something not being as good as you had […]
