NS Impressions – Code Name S.T.E.A.M. (3DS)

Often I hear particular comments revolving around Nintendo and their games, especially ones that Nintendo never has any new IPs and re-use the old characters all the time. Although I can’t deny that Mario and co. see a great deal more action than some other characters (come on Nintendo, give a little love to Samus), … Continue reading

NintenRants – Amiibo

I thought I would try something new, so welcome readers to the first in my series of NintenRants, where I will simply go on a rant about something to do with Nintendo. This might be their operating procedures, business models, or just a fiery response to some news. These probably won’t be a massively regular … Continue reading

NS Impressions – Pandora’s Tower (Wii U eShop)

Back in the golden days of the Nintendo Wii, there was a trio of Japanese RPGs released to differing acclaim in the West. This boon came during the time that the Wii was seen as a, for the lack of a better term, “kiddie console”; so the fact that three unique JRPGs were brought to … Continue reading

NS Impressions – Mighty Gunvolt (3DS)

I must admit, I had no idea what to expect from this game. Whereas with Azure Striker GUNVOLT, I knew exactly what I was getting into, I had heard practically nothing about Mighty Gunvolt. This is despite it being by the same studio and arguably the same genre. However, the last Nintendo Direct saw the … Continue reading

Nintendo Scene × Mario Kart 8

The Legend of Zelda × Mario Kart 8 was a wondrous moment for the Mario Kart series. Personally I was already sold by the mere fact eight new tracks were being introduced to the starting grid let alone the character and vehicle fluff. The months have clocked on by and I now have a mighty … Continue reading

When I heard that Xenoblade Chronicles was being ported to the New Nintendo 3DS, I became very excited; after all, I never got to finish the game originally owing to my Wii save data being wiped. I was intrigued to see how the game would be, or even if it could be successfully ported onto … Continue reading

NS Impressions – Azure Striker GUNVOLT (3DS)

At Eurogamer Expo last September, whilst my friends were queuing for (and obviously playing) Splatoon again, I had a little look around the indie section for Wii U and 3DS. On my journeys, I found a single demo level of Azure Striker GUNVOLT, so I gave it a go. The little game I discovered was … Continue reading

The dust has now settled on the whirlwind response to Nintendo’s sudden announcement of not only their partnership with DeNA and their proper entrance into the smartphone game market, but a new dedicated gaming platform, and what a response it was.
