Too Yarn Cute!

If you're a fan of anything Mario, you're more than familiar with his usually-green dinosaur buddy.  However, you might not be so familiar with his side games.  Yoshi's Woolly World is Yoshi's latest side show, and if there's one thing I can tell you about it now, it's that you're not a man if you play this game.  It's impossible, because...

Making a superb Mario game is just a drop and drag away

Nintendo has a long history of making level editors reaching as far back as the Famicom era, but these efforts over the years have been surprisingly middling. Either the editors fell short in providing players with enough tools to fuel their imaginations (*cough* Smash Bros. stage editor *cough*) or, in WarioWare D.I.Y.'s case, the MicroGame...

A bit late, but does that stop it from being great?

Before we get into the review, I wanted to say something that doesn't factor into the review score, but I felt should be mentioned.  I think Super Mario Maker is the wrong game to come out nearly 3 years into the Wii U's lifespan.  This is the kind of game that should have been a launch title, demonstrating excellent Gamepad usage while...

You know, the game that guy from Smash Bros is from!

Once upon a time, a blue haired young man was added to some fighting game you might have heard of called Super Smash Brothers Brawl who went by the name of Ike. I grew to enjoy playing as Ike in that game. I thought he was pretty powerful, and being the naive kid I was, thought he was the coolest thing ever. Likewise, when I went into a GameStop...

Is the New Nintendo 3DS worth it?

Recently, Nintendo of Canada gave Always Nintendo the chance to review the newest member of the 3DS family, the New Nintendo 3DS XL. The New Nintendo 3DS takes a step above its predecessors by bringing things like face tracking 3D, C-Stick support, faster processing power and built-in NFC/amiibo scanning support to the table. We take a look at all...

You’ve probably heard of Hatsune Miku, Japan’s bigger-than-life vocaloid. While she’s a cultural phenomenon in her homeland where she routinely crushes the music charts and her concerts sell out entire stadiums, Miku has become pretty big deal in the west, too. How big? Like, big enough to make Letterman blush in front of a live studio...

Runbow? More like Jogbow!

Chances are if you have been following the Nintendo indie scene, you have most likely heard of Runbow. Personally, I tried out the demo during E3 and had a blast with it. Needless to say, I was kind of excited to get my hands on it. Not to mention, the game was boasting a variety of characters from other indie titles so of course I was looking...

M2 sticks close to its guns

I’d attempted Gunstar Heroes twice before in my life, both times not much more than for about ten minutes, and that’s not really enough time to get a good feel for a game heralded as one of, if not the, best Sega Genesis game out there. Something about the aesthetic turned me off before I could give the game a fair shake, and, yes, I know...

Don't buy this game under any circumstances

So I woke up this morning and I was all ready to work on the Enter the Dragonfly review, but then I thought to myself, “Hey, I just got paid yesterday so let’s see if the 3DS got any new releases that look interesting”. As I opened the Nintendo eShop, I saw a peculiar game sitting right in between such classics like Brave Tank Hero and...

Our friend Jason reviews this classic PS2 port

The most important thing to preface this entire review with is the fact that this is a Playstation 2 game that's been remastered. It comes from an older time. So, does Nordic Games' remaster come as a pleasant surprise or is it really still just an old, aged game with a shinier coat of paint on...
