Clubhouse Games Needs a Remake

Who remembers Clubhouse Games, the Nintendo DS classic? We have very fond memories of this game, both playing single-player, and online multiplayer. This is by far, one of the best games on the Nintendo DS, and here’s why:

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...

Infendo Presents: The History of Nintendo – Part 9 DS Mania

Welcome to the Infendo Presents: The History of Nintendo! Join us as we chronicle Nintendo from their humble hanafuda beginnings, to the dominance of the Wii and DS and beyond! With Nintendo in such a precarious position in the home console space following the success of their first two consoles, many analysts at the time were ready to write Nintendo off. The Nintendo 64 was a failure they would s...

Trade used games in-store to Walmart for store credit starting March 26

Retail giant Walmart is planning to begin an in-store video game trade-in program starting March 26. It’s as simple as taking your old games in for store credit of up to $35. The service is currently available online, for both games and consoles. When the in-store service launches on the 26th, consoles will be excluded. I experimented a bit with the online calculating system. It’s very...

Would you buy this version of Portal on DS?

Some homebrewers are just amazing. Take for example what modder Smealum has done on the DS. While his work is still in the early stages (he has been working on his project for six months), what he has done on the aging hardware is pretty amazing. Obviously he won’t be able to monetize his project without the permission of Valve, but the company has a history of allowing fan projects such as ...

This isnt Nintendos first rodeo: Retrospective of Nintendo Online

The Wii U launch is nearing folks, and even though we know a ton about the console, there are still plenty of question marks, namely the way users will connect with each other online. Surprisingly, Nintendo has been taking their consoles online since 1995, far sooner than either Microsoft or Sony had even thought about making a gaming console. Click on through to take a tour of Nintendo’s fo...

Sony Says Nintendo Is Always A Competitor

With the announcement that a future software update will allow the Vita to become a controller for the PS3 (similar to the Wii U Gamepad), Sony also admitted that Nintendo will always be a competitor.  However, Jim Ryan, Chief Executive of PlayStation, also stated that the DS and Vita are two different devices that can live in harmony, side by side. “I think the gaming offerings of 3DS and Vita ar...

New Super Mario Bros. 2 Gameplay From Japan

As I mentioned in a previous podcast, I was a little worried that the New Super Mario Bros. 2 would focus too much on the coin collection, and not enough on the actual game play or storyline.  I think that I might have judged the game too soon. Japan has released two commercials that show a bit more of the game play, including a Giant Boo, a possible Koopalings chase, giant rocks falling under wat...

Pokémon Black & White 2 is a Hit in Japan

Pokémon Black and White 2 are easily two of the most anticipated games of the year.  Here in North America, “Fall 2012” will not get here soon enough.  We may have a couple more months to wait, however Japan saw the release on Saturday, June 23rd. Sales on the release date surpassed all first day sales of the year, so far.  With an astonishing 1,618,621 copies sold the games have quick...

New Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 trailer is amazing, despite not showing a lick of gameplay

My excitement level for Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 has been tepid at best. For one, I’m still bitter that the game will be a Nintendo DS title as opposed to Nintendo’s newest toy the 3DS. I understand all the reasoning behind Nintendo’s decision: the Nintendo DS has sold an ungodly amount of units and Nintendo is in the business to make money. Sure. I still however believe that ...

What Time is it?! Adventure Time Video Game…Time!

Shmowzow! It looks like it’s pretty official now – there’s an Adventure Time video game coming to the 3DS and DS this Fall, as confirmed by the press release posted on the Frederator Studios blog. Creator of the wildly popular cartoon series, Pendleton Ward, announced the game less-than-officially on his Twitter account a couple months ago, but it’s nevertheless reassuring to finally see a proper ...
