In December of 2016, Nintendo launched a program with HackerOne, a service that provides bounties ranging from $100 to $20,000 for finding bugs and exploits, in order to stamp them out on the 3DS. This program has since been extended to the Switch, and so far has awarded three people with bounties. While some members…
In a gritty vintage video games store in Manhattan’s East Village, a man who would only be identified by GorillaStomp, his PlayStation username, firmly explained why he should fix your video game console. Long before it was his livelihood, it was his fascination, and one he’d never asked for permission to do. Now, as…
Breath of the Wild, the 19th game in the Zelda franchise, has been universally praised for its massive (and, sorry, breathtaking) open-world environments, and for injecting life back into a 30-year-old franchise. But something else sets the Nintendo Switch’s moonshot launch title apart from previous installations: The…
Winter. The season where we cut open tauntauns in order to keep warm. And where we bundle up with a blanket, some cocoa, and games. Here’s a list of the numerous games coming out during these snowy times.
By most people’s reckoning—and ways a reckoning in this business can be determined—the Wii U has been a failure. Whether you look at its sales, the number of “classic” Nintendo titles it was home to or even just general brand awareness, it’s been a bust. But what do we know? We’re just stupid adults.
Tiny Tim or Little Timmy might not get their Nintendo 3DS for Christmas this year. The handheld console is facing a shortage in brick and mortar stores across the country and online.
Nintendo won’t be giving us more details about the upcoming Nintendo Switch console until January, but we’re already getting leaks of the expected launch pricing. It almost seems too good to be true.
On Nintendo’s official Japanese site, the company has announced that production is scheduled to end soon.
Yesterday, Eurogamer reported that the production of Wii U consoles was ending this week. Today, Nintendo says this is “not true.”
Nintendo, once drunk on the promise of touch screens and motion controls, has come to its senses. Four years later, the Japanese gaming giant is quietly taking its biggest mistake since the Virtual Boy off of life support.
After a bit of a stumble with last year’s Superchargers, Skylanders is back and ready to go toe-to-toe with Disney Infinity in the creativity side of the toys-to-life battle. Had the competition not folded, Imaginators would have given it a run for its money.
If you’re in the United States, you still can’t pre-order Nintendo’s upcoming Mini-NES, due to be released on November 11. But you can look at its emulation capabilities compared to the Wii U virtual console thanks to a new video by GameXplain.
Let’s be real for a second: The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One designs are hideous. Sure, both are great gaming consoles, but their cases employ the same look of every generic VCR from the 1980s. Thankfully, Etsy store-owner Decalgirl has a fix for that problem.
Francis Travers spent has spent over 650 hours creating, and then trying to beat, a single level in Mario Maker. Travers’ ambition is to create the most challenging Mario level ever, even if it means spending 2016 trying to best a creation that may actually be impossible.
The next Zelda game isn’t out yet, but eagle-eyed players are already finding all sorts of cool easter eggs.
I’ve played the new Zelda game for about half an hour. It’s terrific. It’s also very unlike the many Zeldas I’ve played before.
It’s barely related to the Star Fox series and has mostly been ignored in the year of hype leading to the release of its big brother Star Fox Zero, but the new oddball Star Fox Guard tower defense game from Nintendo and Platinum is well worth your attention.
When she shoots, Samus Aran doesn’t miss. That’s one of the fundamental truths of the original Metroid Prime, the first-person sci-fi game that came out on the Nintendo GameCube in 2002. You lock her gun onto a target and fire. She hits it every time.
Mario Maker’s most notorious player is back again with another devilishly difficult level. This one is a little different, though. There’s a trap at the end, and it’s a little too good.
The Wii U had a tough 2015. Nintendo can boast that they’ve released some of the most excellent exclusives of the year, yes, but with their next console looming in the horizon, it’s hard not to feel like 2015 was a transitional period.
