If you're not watching playoff baseball, there's something wrong with you. I can understand when you don't want to watch 162 regular season games. But this is the playoffs!!! The air gets cooler, leaves start changing (if you're lucky enough to live in that kinda climate) and every other US major sports leagues are kicking off, about to, or in solid mid-season. If you like sports, this is..... [ read more ]

We loved Nintendo's 3DS when we got our hands (and eyes) on it at E3 this year. All the appropriate adjectives thrown at it doesn't quite do it justice. It's something that's truly (forgive the pun) a sight to see. We've long been held that 3DS was targeted for a March/April 2011 release date, but Nintendo now confirms March 2011 as 3DS release date. ..... [ read more ]

Wii sales are cooling off. Nintendo's hype machine is set on this year's versions of tried and true franchises (Zelda, Mario and Samus), with the yet to be seen towering pile of shovelware branded as "family fun". Sad, but if families actually played that crap, it'd probably boil down to dysfunctional freakin' fast. 3DS's hype hasn't really moved much since E3. Nintendo's keeping the focus..... [ read more ]

Who wants some? Come get some, cuz Duke Nukem's comin' back. Supposedly. It's been 10+ years and this on again-off again game just won't die. This time Duke's got a lot of baggage. He's (or at least the IP has) been through takeovers, sales, bankruptcies, dev limbo and IP limbo. Next to a famous #4's annual summer ritual, watching for Duke Nukem news..... [ read more ]

Nintendo announced price drops for DSi and DSi XL. Each unit dropped $20 bucks with DSi now coming in at $149.99 and DSi XL at $169.99. While not earth shattering news, it's not at all surprising that Nintendo would discount its still hot-selling units. Clearing inventory for 3DS Nintendo? I think so. Which means one, most important thing for those of you that haven't jumped into Nintendo..... [ read more ]

I'm usually one to decry Wii ports and stay clear like week old sashimi. For Sid Meier's Pirates!, I'll make an exception. Regardless of the platform, quality, well designed games like Pirates! usually turn out to be fun and well worth it. Consdier that I have every version of Sid Meier's Pirates! (from Apple IIc Pirates to Pirates! Gold) on every..... [ read more ]

There's a logical excuse why Nintendo doesn't release certain back catalog titles for Wii VC. We've heard everything from lack of public interest in or my favorite: too much effort for too little cash. I can totally understand those points and they're valid. But, even the casual Wii VC gamer and slightest bit retro-gaming fan has to agree that there are just some titles that belong on Wii..... [ read more ]

Calling Wii VC "ignored" is nothing more than a severe understatement. Red-headed step children get more attention than Wii's once touted feature. Heck, even your neighborhood whipping boy is more noticed. It's gotten to a point where besides the back catalog, at some point, you'd think Nintendo would stop mentioning the service. Oh wait...they pretty much have. This week, we finally see..... [ read more ]
