Top 10 3rd Party Nintendo Games

A lot has been said about Nintendo’s love/hate relationship with 3rd party publishers. Infendo decided to take a look at review scores for 3rd party games released on N64, GBA, GameCube, DS, and Wii. Comparing the aggregate scores from Metacritic, we were able to mathematically determine the Top 10 3rd Party Nintendo Games: 10 Final Fantasy VI Advance [GBA] 9 International Superstar Soccer &...

Miyamoto Edition Gold Game Boy SP sells for $$$

OK, so some of us gamers are trying to get Shigeru Miyamoto onto TIME’s Top 100 people list because we think he’s important and we’re not worthy, etc. etc. But is he $2,157 important? That’s right. The gold SP above sold for $2,157 on April 16 to some “lucky” eBayer. Worth it? I have no idea, but here’s hoping the seller uses some of that scratch to buy a ...

Nintendo, industry surge to $1.1 billion in sales

Just to build a bit on Blake’s “Nintendo dominates sales AGAIN” post from yesterday… Nintendo, in addition to dominating the sales numbers for North America with the DS, Wii, and even the GBA (which beat the PS3 in sales), has helped boost the overall sales of the video game industry to over $1 billion dollars. And yes, the PS2 and God of War 2 also helped considerably. I&#...

Nintendo selling Wiis faster than the DS (but not as fast as GBA)

A few numbers for some context (though anything can happen). Keep in mind the DS wasn’t selling even close to what it’s doing at the moment. Just look at that slope get steeper as time progresses. (via Digg)

Nintendo tops Japanese charts again (the world is not enough)

The Wii and its smaller but equally porcelain cousin the DS have done it again. They’ve risen against the odds that are stock shortages and confused gaming journalists unaccustomed to strange new technology, and have increased the number of units sold this week in Japan. Truly, our offspring will celebrate the success with the gift of drink and song whilst they waggle away with the Wiimote 2...

Get Your Spend On – new releases this week

Not a very hot week for releases with Chocobo Tales for DS and Rival Swords on Wii topping the curiosity meter. And apparently the GBA still isn’t dead, with Dogz 2 out for the handheld-that-cannot-be-killed. Dogz 2, eh? Maybe it is time to pull that plug.

TMNT: A tale of three reviews

Turtle power has its limits, apparently, but it’s still kicking on the Game Boy. Yes, the Game Boy. The new TMNT movie-based game tanked on a variety of hand helds this week (3.4 PSP review, the 3.1 DS review), but then Gamespot goes and gives everyone in gaming a migraine with its 8.1 rating for the GBA version. If I could channel Cartman’s Kyle’s mother for a moment: Wha wha wh...

Nintendo Spotting: The Devil Wears Game Boy edition

Twisted ankles, here I come.

Game Boy almost dead

The time has come my friends. It’s time to retire a Nintendo legend’s number for good (and I’m not talking Michael Jordan retirement here, I’m talking permanent). Game|Life: Here is the complete list of Game Boy Advance software on the way for the second quarter of 2007, courtesy a Nintendo press release from this afternoon: Summer — Shrek the Third (Activision) Game ...

More on Gunpei (David beats Goliath every time)

From beyond the grave, Gunpei still influences an entire generation of gaming: “Although fancier, more powerful handheld technology existed at the time, Yokoi maintained that the Game and Watch systems should use affordable components that offered a decent battery life. Consumers, he believed, would prefer cheaper products with fun gameplay over the hottest, cutting-edge gadgets. This design...
