Nintendo Officially Lowers The Price Of The 3DS

Today is one of those times where you may want to punch yourself in the face or give yourself a congratulatory high-five depending on how you played things.  To the surprise of no one, Nintendo has announced that starting on August 12th the Nintendo 3DS will retail for $169.  The $80 price drop for the 3DS may be slightly surprising to a small amount of people but considering that Nintendo’s new portable device has continued to have lukewarm sales since its March release the price drop isn’t that much of a shock.

Sega Provides a Rather EDITED Look at Sonic Through the Years

Oh Sega, I love you… Not only because you made some of my favorite games growing up, or because you created me a life-long friend in the form of the blue blur, but because you have balls the size of a small country. In a cute little video – that I somehow missed at the start of the week – Sega decided to show of a new video compilation of Sonic “Through the Years” to tug at our collective nostalgia-based heart-strings. Which, kind of works… except for the fact they are taking an EXTREMELY EDITED look back at the history of Sonic.

Nintendo Reveals Their Offerings For The San Diego Comic Con

This year’s upcoming San Diego Comic-Con will feature thousands of different booths, each fighting for your attention. Nintendo’s booth looks to promise quite the attention grabber this year, which features the debut of many games, along with other treats.

The tour traverses across the country and features a number of big name band such as: Against Me!, Paramore, A Day to Remember, 3OH3, and countless more.

Tekken Wii U Is All About Humiliation [E3 2011]

Almost a week later and I’m still trying to wrap my head around Nintendo’s E3 press conference and the newly announced Wii U.  Name aside (its dumb part 2), I’m still trying to gauge if the Wii U has potential or if it’s literally going to be a Wii HD with another gimmick tacked on.  I’m not making my final judgment on the Wii U just yet since we haven’t seen a single full-on game in action just yet, but I’m not sure if tapping a screen to throw ninja stars is something I’ll immediately want to experience.

Nintendo 3DS Round-Up [E3 2011]

With a less then stellar launch in the games department, Nintendo has upped the bar by showcasing several new titles at E3. The best part of it all, most of them come out later this year. We got the low down on some of the games you might have over looked on your E3 watch.

Nintendo Wii U: Afterthoughts [E3 2011]

Nintendo has finally announced their newest console, the Wii U. While their E3 press conference didn't have a lot to say directly about the hardware it will be running (focusing mostly instead on their giant, fancy touch-screen controller). They have finally made the leap to a true HD system, which has more than enough power on board to finally run titles directed towards a more hardcore demographic. Titles such as: the upcoming Darksiders 2, Battlefield 3, and Arkham City.

Starfox 64 3D Hands-On Impressions [E3 2011]

There are a few Nintendo franchises that while their popularity is high, we just haven’t seen enough of them lately.  Mario, Zelda and even Donkey Kong can be guaranteed to appear every two or three years in a major release, but the same can’t be said of the coifed haired master pilot that is Starfox.  After debuting on the GameCube in an adventure that really didn’t retain the spirit of the series, Starfox simply disappeared, perhaps vanishing into a black hole after a miscalculated piloting move.  But thanks to Nintendo realizing that there’s an audience for sci-fi spaceshi

The Potential Blunder Moments Of E3 2011

Every year gamers look forward to one specific thing due to the near endless joy that it offers. No, I’m not referring to the ever so crowded but amazing Winter release schedule that this year will bring us games such as Uncharted 3 and Modern Warfare 3.  I’m instead referring to E3 and the near infinite amount of amazement it offers.
