The Mushroom Kingdom seems like a pretty happy place all things considered. I mean there’s stuff like regularly scheduled koopa invasions and princessnappings to contend with, but those are rather short lived and usually followed up parties, sporting events, and go-kart races. But what if I told you the happy go lucky world that the Mario Bros inhabit isn’t quite so innocuous as it might seem. In the locales that Mario has visited over the years, be they in the confines of the Kingdom or in...

"Monster Hunter 4G gets a new trailer today by way of Capcom, and while this is technically for the Japanese release, all the footage consist of loud music and roaring. No need to worry about language barriers.

The trailer shows us a desert environment, complete with lots of sand and the occasional oasis. Buried here are ancient ruins and caves, baking in the oppressive desert heat. Oh, and watch out for the monsters, because they'll kill you dead. Catch a glimpse of these legendary creatur..."

"The sequel for NES Remix, the popular series that strips classic Nintendo games into bit-sized challenges, is out this week on Nintendo's Wii U eShop. Since Virtual Console games are a main tie-in for NES Remix, and most games of these vintage games are available on both Wii U and 3DS, IGN asked series director Koichi Hayashida why Nintendo chose to develop the series for its home console only."

Daav from SegmentNext takes a spin on this upcoming 3DS golf game: "Perhaps the biggest criticism in this limited demo out on the Nintendo eShop at the time is that it doesn’t show off how Mario Golf: World Tour is special in any way."

Mario Golf: World Tour will feature a robust regional and worldwide online tournaments that are hosted by Nintendo when it launches next month, as well as create their own tournaments.

"So, when Mario Golf hit the N64 in 1999, what exactly made it so compelling? In typical Nintendo fashion, Mario Golf excels at keeping things simple, while adding appealing, colourful visuals and the personality of Mario and his friends. Mario Golf isn’t, at least in my estimation, for the same kind of people who would play a PGA Tour game.

But it’s not like the game strips away everything that makes golf what it is. You’ll still be reading greens, paying attention to the wind, and careful..."

Yumi’s Odd Odyssey is the third game in the Umihara Kawase series which is popular in Japan. This is the first and only game to come to North America. The series began in 1994 on the Super Famicom system. The sequels were released on the Japanese PlayStation, PSP, and DS systems. What sets this series apart from other platformers (other than the bizarre dream world and creatures) is that the main characters are equipped with a bungee-like fishing line that they can attach to surfaces and ...

"Could this place of whimsy, of musical dogs and free fruit, a land where money literally grows on trees, be nothing more than a dream come true? Don’t be fooled by its charming disguise. Animal Crossing is no playful accident. No, Animal Crossing is the stuff of nightmares."

"Brody of RGN writes, "When asking the average person, albeit a parent or middle-aged adult, about video games, most will tell you they are a waste of time and “rot your brain.” Video games have gotten such a huge amount of negative attention over the last couple of decades. They are usually the first thing people point fingers at when a horrible act of violence occurs. It seems as though mainstream media refuses to cover the fact that video games also have many positive effects on a person. S..."

"Since I didn’t have any enthusiasm for this strange new handheld, it remained off my typical Christmas list chocked full of video games and the like. I don’t remember what I got that year, but it didn’t involve any fancy screen touching or duality or whatever Nintendo preached to us at the time.

Fast forward two months, when the biggest thing happening is my friend getting a Nintendo DS for his birthday – a rather ugly silver model. Not that any colour of the original DS could be too visua..."
