Splatoon – “Stages” Trailer

Splatoon, from the hearts and minds of Nintendo’s youthful development team, has a new trailer introducing some of the stages to appear in the final title.

Spotlight: Kirby | Absurdity in Dream Land

A pink blob, a purple blob, an anthropomorphised tree with an excessively large nose. The pink blob inhales quantities of matter, foreign bodies, hostile figures like a demonic vacuum cleaner and then changes shape, costume and abilities based on the absorbed matter in an unknown and unexplained type of digestion resulting in

New Nintendo 3DS XL Too Big To Fail? The Absence of the Regular New 3DS In America

My opinion was that Nintendo cared, not conned, as they listened to consumer

Hush Gameplay Trailer – Wii U

A game that could be called charming if it wasn’t so creepy, Hush by GS78 will be making its way to Wii U in Summer. It’s already ticking many of the horror genre boxes, with soul-less children, orphanages and a discordant musical score – it also provides a refreshing alternative

Spotlight: Kid Icarus – The Winged Comedy

28 years ago, Icarus and Daedalus, an enduring Greek parable of ‘how not to make glue’ was wrested from its classical heritage by Nintendo’s Frankenstein caress. Icarus endured the transmutation from antiquarian allegory in dilapidated old books to low-brow media mainstream when it hit the Family Computer Disk System in 1986
