Update: Did Target, Amazon, and Best Buy just reveal the Wii U box art?

According to retail websites, Target, Amazon, andBest Buy, have updated their catalog with the final Wii U software box art. At this time, the final box art designs have not been confirmed by Nintendo, so it’s quite possible these are just placeholders. The supposed final designs do resemble that of the Gamecube software box art with the curved Wii U logo portion at the top. In addition, the...

Nintentunes: The windiest day edition

New Mexico is famous for a couple of things: Green chile, The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, birthplace of Smokey the Bear. In Spring, New Mexico is known for something else, wind. I don’t know how to describe how windy it is outside in the New Mexico area. One example is that this morning during our soccer game, we had to move to another field because the wind ripped the goal fro...

Nintentunes: the best bleeps and bloops around

Another Sunday, another edition of Nintentunes, the weekly journey down video game music memory lane. To me, music is one of the most underappreciated aspects of video games, and deserves its just as much as the visuals and gameplay mechanics. This week the worlds game is played by an unlikely robot, Mario picks up a tennis racket for the first time, and the first (and only) of the Capcom Five hit...

If the most interesting man in the world listened to music, he would listen to Nintentunes!

NES – Bionic Commando Back in the days when most of my gaming experiences came from borrowing games from other people, and my uncle was the biggest gamer I knew (which also made him the coolest), I would spend many a weekend visiting family with all of us huddled around the NES waiting for our turn. Bionic Commando lended itself well to ‘die and pass the contoller’ style gameplay, and I ...

Reptile is this week’s Nintentunes biggest fan

Remember when you were a wee little child and asked your parents for a dog but you couldn’t have one because of your little sisters allergies and were given a pet lizard instead? This week’s edition of Nintentunes is dedicated to that as it is an all reptile edition. This week we will go dinosaur hunting, eat sewer pizza, and even talk to our reptile mayors in the city. Join us, and as always,...

Nintentunes: where is all the winter weather edition

I live in New Mexico. New Mexico is primarily a desert. Despite this fact, I can hardly remember a winter in recent memory that has been so warm and precipitation free. I mean come on, this year I have been in shorts and a long sleeve shirt for the majority of the season, when in years past you couldn’t catch me without at least three layers on. What’s the deal mother nature! With that said, h...

Nintentunes is on now!

In my short time as an Infendo contributor, Nintentunes has been one of my favorite parts about writing for the site. Although not everyone may care for the weekly (sometimes) segment, I love reliving video games through the fantastic music emerged throughout the years. If you love video game music as much as I do, click on through and enjoy the pure bliss that is Nintentunes!

Nintentunes celebrates Mario Kart 7 so this week it’s an all racer edition!

There is no way that I am about to jump online with Mario Kart 7 tonight. Why you ask? Well embarrassment for one, and I usually like to finish the single player game first to get a feel for the tracks. Oh yeah, and I don’t want to get smoked ever single race.  In celebration of the launch of Mario Kart 7, this week Nintentunes will visit the wide world of racers on Nintendo consoles. If yo...

Nintentunes would like to remind you that Skyward Sword is only 14 days away

It seems that not much attention is being given to what will perhaps be one the best games in the franchise by the mainstream gaming media with other big name titles dropping such as The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, but rest assured that we here at Infendo are chomping at the bit to get our hands on the game. In fact, if given the opportunity to play the game of rece...

Mario Kart 7 doesn’t have a colon

Mario Kart 7 is the first numbered edition of this game. The other six entries in this series don’t carry a numerical indicator, just a name, colon, or game system name. Mario Kart for GameCube was fun because some people just referred to it as Double Dash, but the DS and Wii versions just tacked the respective system’s name onto the title. So why did Nintendo choose to call this editi...

Nintentunes: Columbus day edition

NES – Operation Wolf Operation Wolf was one of the first games I remember wanting to buy because I first played it at an arcade. Operation Wolf was ported to every console under the sun at the time, but only the NES and Sega Master System versions featured the all important light gun support. The game was brutally hard, as were many  ported games that were originally intended to eat all you...
