Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks joins Wii U Virtual Console

The Legend of Zelda games released for the Nintendo DS have been mostly forgotten by the general public, both Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks were generally well received and they sold millions of copies, but they aren’t really considered among the franchise’s highpoints.

Video games have become just as much of a Halloween tradition as scary movies, haunted houses, and pumpkin patches.

Are Amiibo Cards the Future of Amiibo?

Not too long ago, Nintendo announced that they have shipped around 10.5 million Amiibo since their launch late last year. However, we’re all aware of the issues surrounding the availability of Amiibo figures.

Super Mario Maker Review

Super Mario Maker is exciting. Anyone who has ever enjoyed a Super Mario title has wanted to create their own Super Mario course. You’ve probably imagined tons of them.

ZombiU Goes Multiplatform as Zombi

ZombiU was an unexpected launch title for the Wii U. A gory, gritty, first person survival horror game wasn’t exactly what we expected to launch alongside the newest Nintendo platform. However, I’m very happy that it did. ZombiU was (and still is) a standout title on Wii U and is definitely a must-have for owners of the system. It provided moments full of ...
