It’s safe to say that Nintendo fans are pretty starved for big announcements. We’re currently in the biggest gap between general Nintendo Directs in the history of Nintendo Directs being a thing and we have no idea what the company plans to release after March. So, when Nintendo announced an Animal Crossing Direct a couple days ago, it was easy to be a little disappointed. But, that game is only a month out and we knew very little about it. So, from that sense, this makes sense. Continue reading
When Nintendo Labo first came out, I saw a lot of people talking about games getting “Labo support”. This really confused me, since it really didn’t seem like that was the direction Nintendo was going in. They had put out two different sets, the Labo Variety Kit and the Labo Robot Kit, and both were very self-contained experiences. Nintendo even went as far as to announce Labo in its own separate video, with no connection to any other game and without even using the Nintendo Direct banner. So, what is this Labo support everyone is talking about? Clearly, everyone had gone insane. But then, Nintendo patched Labo support into Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Continue reading
There will be a Nintendo Direct this month. I mean, they haven’t actually said that they’re going to, but they are. It just makes sense. We’re coming up on the one year anniversary of their Nintendo Switch event, which basically spelled out their plans for 2017. Plus there’s been a ton of leaks, one of which is an internal timeline for marketing the game Fe that straight up says that it’ll be shown during the January Direct. So, it’s happening. But what will be shown, and more importantly, what do I want to be shown?
Man, if it doesn’t happen, this is the dumbest start to an article. Continue reading
2016 was a pretty good year for video games. Unfortunately, I didn’t have nearly as much disposable income to buy games as I had in years past, and the end result is that a lot of the biggest games of the year, I haven’t played. I also, don’t own a PlayStation 4, so I haven’t played games like Uncharted 4 or The Last Guardian. But, I was still able to come up with a list of ten games that I played this year. It’s probably pretty different from most of the lists you’ve seen on other sites. Continue reading
I never would have guessed that I’d be spending the majority of my free time in November 2016 playing 2012’s Animal Crossing: New Leaf. But, as I’m sure most of you are aware, a big update to the game came out a little under two weeks ago, and suddenly it’s become part of my daily routine again. The funny thing about it, is that although the update did add substantial content, most of what I’ve been doing I could have been doing the whole time. Continue reading
