List of the Best Nintendo Remote Control Cars

While I was growing up, I enjoyed playing different Nintendo RC games. Nintendo has been a household name over the years when it comes to toys and games. It’s no surprise that I’ve grown to be passionate about their RC games. While the developer is also known for other games such as Warriors, I’m also excited to know that they’ve continued producing different and captivating titles. You might even...

10 Classic Nintendo Games That Haven’t Been Remade, but Should Be

I know what you’re thinking. Doesn’t Nintendo already remake everything? Well, yes, Nintendo is notorious for releasing, re-releasing, and re-re-releasing many of their more popular titles. Take Metroid for example. Excluding its original release on the Famicom Disk System and Nintendo Entertainment System, Metroid has been rereleased a grand total of six times (the Classic NES Series ...

Hanging up the Crown: Smash Wii U’s Losing its Tourney Mode

It’s a day that ends in “Y,” so you know what that means…more random Nintendo news! There was a rumor that started circulating recently that the Nintendo NX might be region-free, which would be wonderful news! This could lead into a whole new age for Nintendo gaming not seen since the SNES. The duality of Nintendo news is that there’s always a stoutly negative announc...

YouTube Spotlight: Mario Kart Honest Game Trailer

I spend way too much time watching Honest Movie Trailers on YouTube. If you’re familiar with those, you know that, in them, voice actor Jon Bailey uses his epic voice to make fun of new, and sometimes old, movies in theatrical trailer style. Recently, Jon narrated the first ever Honest Game Trailer, for none other than Nintendo’s Mario Kart series, on YouTube channel Smosh Games. Fans ...

What developer would you like to see take over your favorite Nintendo franchise?

Nintendo has long been very selective over their key franchises such as Mario and Zelda. Only in the last couple of three years has Nintendo actually trusted a company to take charge of their key independent properties. Sure, Grezzo was in charge of porting The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D to the 3DS, and Team Ninja developer Metroid: Other M for the Wii, but will Nintendo ever trust other ...

What does Nintendo need to bring to E3?

Sony and Microsoft both have next gen consoles on the way. Soon. This much we know for sure. As for whether or not they will be show stoppers and garner enough support to take whatever momentum the Wii U has gained in the last few months remains to be seen. Nintendo can control their own destiny with a good showing at E3 and beyond. What should Nintendo bring to the table? Read on to hear my thoug...

Sonic All Stars Racing Transformed Trailer

I love Mario Kart, I have since it first debuted, but I have a confession… I think that Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed might push its way ahead of our buddy Mario.  The game looks fantastic, and if the controls are as smooth s the video makes them appear, I will be an instant fan. What are your thoughts?                       &...

Good guys celebrate Kart patch while cheating crybabies quit in huff

Ah, can you feel the fresh air? Now’s a great time to go online in Mario Kart 7 as fans around the globe keep picking the Maka Wuhu track to celebrate the recent patch with a cheat-free dash along the terrific island course. Humor abounded earlier today as occasional groups of cheaters — apparently unaware of the patch’s effect — tried to take their normal shortcut, found t...

Mario Kart 7 patch available in eShop

Ladies and Gentlemen, Mario Kart 7 has been patched. Head over to eShop to download the game update, which fixes the shortcut issues in Maka Wuhu, Wuhu Island Loop, and Bowser Castle 1 (I didn’t know about that last one). Note that the patch will not become mandatory for online play until May 16th, so we’ll have to wait until tomorrow for the new cheat-free environment to really take e...

Bad news for cheaters: Mario Kart 7’s getting patched!

Another recent Nintendo Direct highlight featured the announcement of next week’s3DS firmware update, adding home screen folders and patching abilities. Best of all, Mario Kart 7’s getting a much-needed patch in May — hopefully eliminating the infamous Maka-Wuhu shortcut. Kingdom Hearts 3D is also scheduled for patching. I think most players would agree this Kart fix is very good...
