My Games Are Better Than Yours: Eugene’s Top 10 List of Games That Don’t Suck

Coming up with a list of ‘Best’ or ‘Top’ anything can be tricky. Just listen to Episode 400. For one, there isn’t a person on the planet who has played EVERYTHING, including the Infendo crew. While I might think a game such as Illusion of Gaia deserves top praise on any list, the vast majority of people don’t know what it is, or simply haven’t played it. Additionally, a beloved game such as Breath...

Steve Peacock’s Top 25 Favorite Nintendo Games

The idea for this article stemmed from Infendo Radio Episode 400. If you have not listened to that show….why are you here? Go listen! It was fantastic. The group had the idea to do an individual top 25 list, and I was the first one to say that sounded like a great idea. I was not able to be on 400, and was very disappointed by some of the games that got cut. For those of you that know me, you will...

Retro-bit Offering Wireless Controllers for Retro Consoles

  As a palate cleanser from all of the XBox news yesterday and the seemingly endless debate over which console will win the next generation when two of them still have months left until they hit the market, comes news on the retro gaming front.  Retro-bit, a company that produces products for many retired consoles, has announced that they are releasing a new line of wireless controllers for the NE...

LOL: Be careful what you ask for, Nintendo 64 Kid

Personally, this scenario isn’t all that far-fetched. I had a similar moment happen to me when the Virtual Boy I received for Christmas in 1995 started to shoot lasers and pluck out my retinas, while forcing me to endlessly play Waterworld.

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...

Rumor: Nintendo seeking to reacquire Rare from Microsoft

Remember when Rare Ltd. was bought by Microsoft back in 2002?  Yeah, as a youngster, it hurt me to see franchises like Perfect Dark, Killer Instinct, Conker, and Banjo-Kazooie now belong to the hands of Microsoft instead of Nintendo. It was like saying goodbye to an old friend…an old friend that took quite a long time to put out material for one’s console. In hindsight, it was probably...

Kirby 20th Anniversary Collection detailed for North America

Back in April, Nintendo announced that the their lovable pink puffball, Kirby, would be receiving his own game collection to commemorate the character’s 20th anniversary (Side note: Nintendo, just so you know, you never did acknowledge the Metroid series’ 25th anniversary last year. Just saying. But, I digress). Now, the full details of  this Wii-exclusive collection have been revealed...

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...
