As the gaming industry spirals towards this year's annual E3 show we enter what has traditionally been a slow period for game releases. This time of year most of the big publishers are busy preparing for the big show in Los Angeles, which means if any game is released it's usually something that just gets dumped without much fanfare. 2014 seems to be an exception to that as we've recently seen... more.

Ever since the GameCube version of Super Smash Bros., hardcore players have preferred that controller for the game. The Wii version of the series, Brawl, was able to support GameCube controllers as that system had built-in controller ports for those pads. But until now Wii U owners were wondering how such a thing would be possible on the new system. Today Nintendo hinted at an answer by more.

Are you one of those people who plopped down $250 for a 3DS and are feeling a little burned now that Nintendo is dropping the price? Well, Nintendo is a bit guilty so beginning in September, 3DS early adopters (or "Ambassadors") will be receiving a total of 20 free downloadable NES and GBA games. The NES games will arrive in September, and the GBA games will come later in the year. So far these... more.

This weekend, the greatest Zelda game ever made is re-released for the Nintendo 3DS. Originally released in 1998, The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time eclipsed all past and future Zelda titles to become the definitive game in the long running series. I can vividly remember playing through the game over Thanksgiving in 1998. It was a couple days without sleep, but the game was so perfect you ju... more.
Nintendo’s Wii U

Nintendo has a rocky history with their E3 press conferences. They have had highs, such as the reveal of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, and real lows such as the unbelievably laughable Pac Man display for the GameCube a few years ago. Today's Nintendo conference left some people disappointed, as while the new console was announced, not much information was revealed aside from the controll... more.

While it's been rumored for a couple weeks, today Nintendo made it official; their new console will arrive in 2012.

5 Memorable Games on the Virtual Console

If there's one thing that always strikes me as soon as I enter the Wii Shopping Channel it's "Bloody hell that's a lot of games!" If I had piles of disposable income lying around (and if the Wii had a bigger memory capacity that could be measured in some other form than blocks. I mean blocks? Really? LEGO blocks don't help I'll bet, but I'll save my rantings for another time...) I'd probably hav... more.
