Speciation 101: Harvest Moon 3D: The Lost Valley and Story of Seasons

I’m just like any other human being – I love cultivating root vegetables and wooing local bachelorettes. But what you might not know is that there are TWO Harvest Moon games that are nearly ripe for plucking from the loamy soil of your local video game purveyor.

Dear Nintendo: It's Not Me, It's You

Nintendo and I had a great relationship.

We had been together for over 20 years. As in any relationship, compromises were made on both sides, and we were happy; I invested my time and money, and Nintendo would pay it back with high-quality, fun, timeless games.

Mighty No. 9 [First Impressions]

A couple of years back I had the opportunity to attend GDC (Game Developers Conference) thanks to my time here at Shogun. To this day I hold it to be the epitome of gaming conventions. If you have the opportunity to attend, you simply must.

Nintendo Post-E3 Preview Event 2013

Once a year the fine people at Nintendo Canada are nice enough to invite us into their “home” and preview some of the titles that were showcased at the year’s E3 in a more private setting, with a lot more access (which is fantastic, because the show floor of E3 is generally not the most ideal environment to get a proper feel for a new title).

Link to the Past Receives a Sequel [Nintendo Direct]

This morning Nintendo resumed their new trend of direct-to-consumer release information via another installment of their “Nintendo Direct” series. Basically a online webcast in the vein of a press conference that all fans of Nintendo can join online. This video detailed Nintendo’s plans moving forwards for the Nintendo 3DS, year of Luigi, and the Wii U. Why is another Nintendo Direct worth writing about? Well, because this one featured information about a new Zelda game and Earthbound’s plans to come to NA.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution Set To Arrive On Wii U In Director's Cut Version [Updated]

The somewhat hand-me down perception the Wii U has amongst certain gamers will likely continue with this latest tidbit of news. After being rumored due to vague retail listings, Square Enix has formally announced Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director’s Cut for the Wii U.

Monolith Soft Reveals Impressive New Wii U Game X

Fans of roaming massive open worlds all while battling giant beasts and seeing damage counter numbers pop on-screen will likely faint upon seeing the new title developer Monolith Soft has revealed. Best known for Xenosaga and Xenoblade, Monolith Soft is going all in with the Wii U as per their reveal of X.  The title may be simple but the actual game is far from that based upon the reveal trailer shown at the latest Nintendo Direct conference.

First Impression: Nintendo Wii U

Unpublished

First impressions often set the mood for all things in life. Think of the time you met that guy who smelled of Bisquick and skunk. Did you stay friends with him? Likely not, because he ate 12 half stakes and forgot to shower. With Nintendo's launch of the Wii U over the weekend, has it become my new BFF or the smelly kid no one talks too?

Wii U Burger King Toys Revealed - Disappointment Incoming

Most video-game cross-over/tie-in promotions tend to result in utter disappointment and that is certainly true of Burger King’s promotion of the Wii U.  If you recall it was revealed, albeit in a stealth like fashion, that the home of the Whopper would receive a slew of toys connected to the Wii U.  

Sony Sued The Actor Behind Kevin Butler (Yes, This Really Happened)

Sony has done something that seems so unjustified in a way that even I, Mr. PlayStation fanboy extraordinaire, can’t defend it or spin it in a positive light.  A lot of dumb things have come out of Sony such as the infamous E3 2006 debacle and more constant things such as unloading a bevy of PSN games in the same week, but Sony went ahead and did something that seems entirely frivolous - they sued actor Jerry Lambert, the man members of the PlayStation nation know better as Kevin Butler.
