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...

Mario Party 9 Site Updated

On March 11th, the 9th installment of the Mario Party series will debut to the public.  With a whopping 80 mini games, a co op and competitive play for up to four players, and the new boss battles, it is sure to keep you busy!  Sure there were just as many mini games in the other Mario party’s, but the way these mini games look seems like they will be outstanding.  Of course, I have not play...

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...

Is Your Wii/Kinect/PlayStation®Move Really Helping You stay Fit?

I have to admit, I bought my Wii for two reasons.  The first being for me and my kids to play the games and enjoy our time together.  The second was to experience the interactive gaming experience and possibly lose a little weight and become a bit more healthy. When I first hooked it up and turned it on I tried out Wii Sports.  It was amazing!  I tried all of the events and found that after boxing...

What if Nintendo Rebranded Themselves as…Nintendo?

Nintendo has always been one of the best systems around, that is a given.  It has stood the test of time and weathered the passing of  great systems such as Sega, Neo Geo, Turbo Graphix 16, Atari, and Watara Supervision. However, over the past few years it seems to have been lost in the shadow of the XBOX 360 and Playstation 3.  It seemed for a while that Nintendo might not be able to keep up with...

At last! The Last Story has been confirmed for a North American Launch.

  I would like to think that Operation Rainfall has had a lot to do with Xenoblade Chronicles coming out this April to North American gamers, with their campaigns to let Nintendo of America know just how much the game was wanted. In a surprise move, Nintendo of America today announced in it’s Nintendo Direct video that The Last Story, another Operation Rainfall game, would be coming stateside...

Go vote for your favorite Xenoblade Chronicles boxart!

Planning on picking up Xenoblade Chronicles this April? I know a few people that are. Nintendo is planning on finally releasing the game, after saying the game wouldn’t hit North American shores, in a few months, and they are letting fans vote for their favorite box art images to be displayed when the game ships. By visiting Nintendo’s facebook page, you can vote for your favorite image that will ...

BurgerTime World Tour Coming To WiiWare

The classic platform puzzler game has its roots all the way back to the Atari and the more popular version of the NES is coming to WiiWare. Is this what Nintendo fans want? More retro games being rehashed? While BurgerTime was a great classic should it just be retired now?   Here is an excerpt from the press release: MonkeyPaw Games Inc. today announced that BurgerTime World Tour will be avai...

Not sure I’d pay $150 for this obscure Wii game

Infendo reader JJ writes: I compiled a list of the 15 rarest and most expensive Wii games and what makes them so hard to find. Many of them have been discontinued or the publishers have closed.  The most expensive game, One Piece Unlimited Adventure, sells for $150 brand new. Like I said before, Metroid Prime Trilogy is a want for me. Also, I’m surprised my dusty copy of Walk it Out is f...

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 ...

Sequel glut driving players away from consoles to more “original” games on iOS?

That’s what Gamaustrua analyst Matt Matthews suspects: The second point (of last year’s annual console sales) brings out is just how sequel-driven the top end of the market has become. Every game, with exception of Just Dance 2 and Batman: Arkham City is a sequel several times over. I’m just now beginning to try to follow the mobile/tablet gaming market, and while many of the g...

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,...
