Infendo Radio 460 – Nintendo Online FTW?

This week on Infendo Radio 460, we finally are able to talk about the recently released Nintendo Online service. The delayed Nintendo Direct finally goes live, and we have a ton of details to discuss because of it.

Pokécademy – Team Building

Say you want to build a team that’s competitive for Pokémon. Maybe not tournament level, but you’d like to be able to play online and not get wrecked. This article is going to explain in detail how to build a 6-poké team for use in a traditional single battle. All of the Pokémon featured in this team are my hand-raised Pokémon, which I’ve used in battles in the past. Fair warning...

Intelligently Incorporating Adaptive Difficulty

or, How to Make Boss Battles More Challenging Without Punishing the Player If you’ve been following Infendo on YouTube, or listening to our weekly podcast, you’d already know that a couple months ago, I restarted The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in Master Mode. This was the first time I’ve started the game from scratch since day one, and the only time I’ve ever playe...

Nintendo Fans Are Too Entitled, And It’s Time to Change the Culture

Entitled Nintendo fans are nothing new - in fact, entitled gamers in general are commonplace. But is it time to change how we look at gaming?

A Trip Inside My Mind Part 1: Donkey Kong

For a while now I've contemplated writing an article about why certain game series have stuck with me over the years, and what they really mean to me. Then I got thinking about the list of games that are truly important that I would want to spotlight. There's a lot of games on that list. So many, in fact, I have decided to change the format of this article. If I was to write the article as it orig...

Pokémon Crystal Launches on 3DS Today

Originally released for the Game Boy Color system in 2000, the Pokémon Crystal game added several new features to the Pokémon franchise.

A Rainbow of Thoughts: Link-A-Pix Color for 3DS Review

Link-A-Pix Color is a puzzle game available for download on the 3DS eShop. Retailing for $7.99, this is a very reasonably priced game. At first glance, one might blow this off as a simple Picross clone. This is very inaccurate from what you actually get. This game sees you on a grid. Inside this grid are numbers of different colors. The number itself represents the number of connected blocks of th...

Nugget of Wisdom: A Chicken Wiggle Review

At $14.99, for all the content it offers both online and offline, Chicken Wiggle is a steal, and a must have for any 3DS owner, new or lapsed. While I personally find the level editor overwhelming, there is a large community who evidently does not, and they are continuously creating new levels that are free to download.

Nugget of Wisdom: A Chicken Wiggle Review

By Steve Peacock There are a few developers I follow very closely. Yacht Club Games (Shovel Knight) and Gajin Games (Bit.Trip series) are two of the three that come to mind right off the bat. The one we are going to focus on today, Atooi, founded by Jools Watsham, is another of those devs. He is best known for Mutant Mudds, Mutant Mudds Super Challenge, and Xeodrifter. He is one of those devs that...
