Nintendo should sell official ringtones

Is it just me, or is Nintendo missing out on some decent cash by not selling official ringtones and text message alert tones? Not to mention a complete lack of Nintendo game soundtracks over on iTunes, which is something Richard brought up last month. I’m always surprised to walk into a board game store or Target and see cheapo RC cars for Mario Kart and other sketchy merchandise when they c...

At Least One DS Game is Enhanced by the 3DS’s Circle Pad

The 3DS’s circle pad actually works as an input for regular DS games. I’ve found that it’s bothersome to use it for games like Pokemon HeartGold, but it improves the control in Mario Kart DS. The circle pad is easily on my list of the top three best features of the Nintendo 3DS. Has anyone else discovered a DS game that plays better thanks to the circle pad?

No release date yet. But listen to what the game’s Wikidpedia profile has to say: Shigeru Miyamoto stated that the new sense of depth makes it clear where all the objects are. Gamespot, IGN and Computer and Video Games have commented on the game’s good use of 3D in the game, stating that it helps with judging distance, “heightening that sense of falling”, and giving more de...

Review – Jam City Rollergirls is an impressive WiiWare accomplishment

The first thing that struck me about Frozen Codebase’s new WiiWare title, Jam City Rollergirls, is that they crammed a lot into the restrictive file size of the Wii Shop Channel.

Sure, it&...

Controversies stall would-be kart racers

Transportation isn’t a problem in the Mushroom Kingdom. Much of its citizenry is capable of self-propelled flight, while others can transform into flying raccoons or spurt wings from their caps. Rumor has it there are even flutists who can travel vast distances simply by whistling a ditty. Despite an abundance of alternatives, however, virtually everyone within the kingdom’s limits dri...

New Super Mario Bros. Voicemail Greetings

Our friends over at Nintendo of Canada managed to snag some time with Mario himself to record a few New Super Mario Bros. and holiday themed voicemail greetings. While you can pick one of the three greetings to use on your phone’s voicemail system, it looks like one of the messages might be used by some video game retailer to remind gamers about New Super Mario Bros. Wii‘s imminent l...
