Where We've Been, Where We Are, and Where We're Going

Chugga Chugga Choo Choo!

Two events have lined up to make me write this Behind the Notes; I just beat Wind Waker HD, and I revived my DS Lite from the dead. The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks is definitely one of those games that reminds the player how different each Zelda game is from the next. This game is the most modern out of all of the Zelda games, as the world has...

A Fan's Opinion of Nintendo's Latest Upgrade

"Ask and you shall receive." At least that's what appears to be the case here. When the 3DS was announced, many fans wondered why there wasn't a second analog input. The same was asked when the 3DS XL was announced. It seemed like the perfect opportunity, but Nintendo decided to pass it by. Now, Nintendo has heard our demand and implemented not...

It's spunky, colorful, modern, simple, and most ironically, non-violent.  Being an entirely new IP, however, has actually been one of it's main hype factors, and yet, according...
