Despite the fact that Nintendo and Halloween are two of my favorite things, for whatever reason I’ve never combined the two. Oh well, I guess that’s what the internet is for: to live vicariously through *a bunch of fucking nerds.
Well Majora’s Mask…it was a decade ago today that you were released for the N64 and holy shit, you’re still sexy as hell. With your gorgeous soundtrack, melancholy atmosphere and gameplay that still feels ahead of its time, thanks for keeping me company through so many late nights. Let’s just hope future entries in the […]
For as long as there have been levels in platforming games based around elements (fire, ice, heart, etc.), there have been those that featured ghost infested castles and haunted forests. It’s pretty much become standard fare over the years to feature a spooky stage of some sort in most video games. And this was never […]
Turns out Nintendo is releasing that fancy Limited Edition Console in the US after all (along with a similar themed DSi that I hadn’t heard about). Not only that but they’re sweetening the deal by packing in a copy of *New Super Mario Bros. Wii in addition to both Wii Sports and Resort. If there […]
Starting today over at Club Nintendo, members can spend their hard earned coins to order this set of Super Mario pins featuring a slick 80’s art style. I’m just glad I never cracked and ordered any of that other lame shit that’s been available this whole time. After fours years of throwing cash at Nintendo, […]

I mentioned a while back that I’d sent my system in to be repaired and was totally impressed with Nintendo’s customer service. Not only did they solve the problem for free but it was shipped back to me in about half the time that I was told to expect (I’m thinking they’re playing by Scotty’s […]
Long before finally getting my hands on Splatterhouse (thanks to the Virtual Console) the very thought of this game scared the shit out me.There was something about the ads for it that ran in those old issues of Gamepro that did a great job of making it feel like you’d regret ever sitting down to […]
The good news is that in honor of Mario’s 25th anniversary this year, Nintendo is releasing a special Wii in a “Mario-Red” color scheme. The bad is that if you really love Mario enough to buy shit like this then you’ve probably already owned a Nintendo Wii for nearly 4 years now.
Just check out this custom made box one of them slapped together in anticipation of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World hitting DVD and Blu-Ray next month. The cartridge itself is a little too small to serve as a carrying case for the disc so I guess there’s just a little hinge on the back for […]
