Infendo

DS Thoughts

Since starting Infendo, we’ve paid a lot of attention to the GameCube, Revolution speculation, and a little GBA love. What about the DS though? Having played the thing, I must say it is pretty cool. That said, I’m a little unsure what to think of it. I have a good friend that has been a Nintendophile his whole life, and bought one the day it came out. Sadly to say, he has recently sold...

Nintendo E3 Coverage

We’re hoping to have a guest contributor (Vince) do a little reconnaissance for Infendo while making his rounds at E3. We’re interested to know first hand how Nintendo’s booth stacks up against Microsoft’s, Sony’s, and the other major software publishers. How was it? What impressed you the most? What left you wanting more? Did they achieve their E3 Goal? Maybe we need...

One good fake

Alright, you guys have probably already seen this, but dang that’s a good take on some creative gaming. The audio and overall presentation are a lil cheesy, but whoever did this put a lot of effort and thinking behind it. Nintendo On? I really hope they stick with Revolution. It’s a solid name. Not too fancy, just right. Podcast: Play in new window | Download (13.8KB)Subscribe: Apple P...

Zelda gets a name, More Revolution at E3

Apparently, the new Legend of Zelda has gotten a full name. Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is what many a bloggers are reporting. This makes sense given the last frame of the most recent Game Developer Conference trailer with the wolf hauling at the moon. Only a little more longer until we find out about the goodness that is Zelda. (Man that series is too good!) In other news, apparently the V...

Next Generation?

This is the next generation for Xbox? It looks more like a step backwards if you ask me (not that you did). Is that really a next generation controller? Big risk takers, eh Microsoft? Great, so the graphics are awesome, and… I used to get pumped about new graphics when like the genesis came out or the playstation. This is just getting redundant. I truly hope the Revolution is just that. A re...

Can 3 Survive?

With E3 just around the corner, I’m left pondering if 3 major console makers (Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo) can all stay in the game. Sony is a sure bet unless they totally blow it with PS3 which is highly unlikely. Microsoft is still loosing billions a year on their Xbox strategy and our vying to overtake Sony. Nintendo is the most cash rich of the three and have quite the cult following despi...

What’s in an age?

In a time before video games ruled the earth, there were board games. Board games, just like video games, include suitable age ranges for the potential players. Monopoly is more suitable for teenagers and older adults. Uno can be played by like 5 year olds, and Risk is somewhere in between. You can think of that being the equivalent to M, E, and Teen in game rating terms. That leaves me with a que...

Nintendo: The Critique

Don’t be too unorthodox! There, I said it. Nintendo has a way of playing the “we know more that anyone else” card. By doing that, they tend to miss the boat sometimes. I still can’t believe what they pulled by saying online play wouldn’t catch on. What were they thinking? It makes me wonder if they didn’t have it planned, and by the time the next gen consoles ca...

Nintendo: The Good

What makes Nintendo so unique? Why is is that out of all the big three console manufacturers, Nintendo is the only one with a true cult following? I attribute it to two things: great design and the creative risk taking. First, Nintendo always makes sure they design a great product. Be it the ergonomic GameCube controller, the amazing packaging behind Wario Ware, or minimal if any load times, the c...

Overlooked Games

I was looking through Game Rankings online rankings and came across a few GameCube titles that I’ve either overlooked or have never had the time to play. The three that most intrigued me were Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, Beyond Good and Evil, and the oh so stylistic Viewtiful Joe. If you’ve played any of them on the GameCube, which would you go after first?

Open for business

I will be posting the first article shortly, which will explain the reason for starting this blog, namely why I chose the unorthodox Japanese company, what it does well, what it needs to improve on, and challenging the idea that if something is made for a younger audience, it must equals less fun. In reality, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Nintendo is unique in that they are the on...
