  • Yoshi’s Woolly World Nintendo Wii U Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on July 16, 2015 under Featured, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo Wii U Reviews
    Editors Note: This review was written by guest writer Kyle Dunn First off let me begin by saying I have played a massive amount of games in my youth and now in adulthood. None have deserved the title as the cutest game quite like this one. I didn’t play much of Nintendo’s first foray into a woollen world in Kirby’s Epic Yarn. But of what I did play, I can say that Yoshi’s Woolly World doe... more.
  • In Memoriam: Satoru Iwata

    0 CommentsPosted by on July 14, 2015 under Feature Articles, Nintendo
    It was late at night at a local meeting place with trusted friends that I got the news about the tragic passing of Nintendo's CEO, Satoru Iwata. Throughout the rest of the night I wanted it to be a mishap, an unfounded rumor, that the man was still alive and well. But the night passed, I woke up, and the industry and the community as a whole were all united in sorrow at his death at the hand of hi... more.
  • The Good and Bad of the Nindies of E3

    0 CommentsPosted by on June 25, 2015 under E3 Conference, Feature Articles, Nintendo, Nintendo Wii
    So E3 has come and gone and there were quite a number of interesting things that came out of it. Mostly good, a few bad, and even one apparently controversial, but the thing about the conference is the news and content doesn't just stop at the big flashy shows and announcements. Take for example, Nintendo's Nindies@Home initiative. While major publishers showed off the more modest projects made b... more.
  • E3 2015: Nintendo’s Digital Event and Show Reveals

    0 CommentsPosted by on June 21, 2015 under E3 Conference, Feature Articles, Nintendo, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo Wii, Press Releases
    Of course, no E3 conference is complete without talking about Nintendo, one of the oldest companies still making video games and has some of the most iconic intellectual properties in the industry. Just like last year, Nintendo didn't have a large, lavish, live show with a bunch of scripted gameplay slices and speeches, but instead opted for a small, humble Digital Event showcase to unveil their l... more.
  • Splatoon Nintendo Wii U Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on June 5, 2015 under Featured, Nintendo Wii U Reviews
    Nintendo made a family-friendly shooter. With online focus. If this was said a few years ago, chances are many would call it a crazy pipe dream. Also as a brand new IP as opposed to repurposing the more marketable Super Mario characters? What a time to be alive. But there's a bit more to Splatoon than its quirky sensibilities let on. On the surface, it is an inky shooter, but it also mixes togeth... more.
  • Does It Hold Up?: Xenoblade Chronicles

    0 CommentsPosted by on April 18, 2015 under Feature Articles, Featured, Nintendo Wii
    Welcome to a new mini-series on AAG. When the dust settles, the hype dies down, and all of the acclaimed awards for presentation at a show are forgotten because the stuff shown wasn't in the final version and was just elaborate smoke and mirrors, what is left is the game you got convinced to buy. The campaign is complete, the world is saved, all of the trophies and achievements are acquired. But a... more.
  • The Legend of Zelda for Wii U Delayed

    0 CommentsPosted by on March 28, 2015 under Nintendo, Press Releases
    At last year's E3, Nintendo announced their Legend of Zelda for the Nintendo Wii U would be a bold step into a full open-world adventure, an approach not seen by the franchise since the original installment. It was hailed by fans and was the talk of the convention, it was even in a light bit of controversy over the possibility of the game's character Link possibly being a woman in this installment... more.
  • Codename: S.T.E.A.M. Nintendo 3DS Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on March 20, 2015 under 3DS Reviews, Featured, Nintendo 3DS
    Intelligent System's newest game is definitely audacious. It's also a step out of their comfort zone. From superb tactical RPGs like Advance Wars and the Fire Emblem series to 3rd-person action mix. You wouldn't guess from just how confident the game presents itself as an alternative history steampunk world set in the 19th century about a covert order of protectors of the world, which somehow mana... more.
  • Kirby and the Rainbow Curse Nintendo Wii U Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on March 4, 2015 under Featured, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo Wii U Reviews
    Kirby might be one of the more experimental Nintendo franchises. After his outings on the NES and SNES, the little pink puffball has had his own racing game, a Marble Madness clone on the GBA, an entirely touchscreen controlled adventure on the DS, and one of his most recent Wii games involved him being turned into yarn. This experimental attitude held by HAL Laboratory hasn't diminished at all wi... more.
  • The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D Nintendo 3DS Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on February 19, 2015 under 3DS Reviews, Featured, Nintendo 3DS
    Majora's Mask is considered by many to be the darkest installment in the Zelda series. Fifteen years ago, despite solid reviews, it received a pretty mixed reception by fans due to its more unique features, and an oddly cynical condescension since the game basically re-used almost everything, character models, engine, music, items, etc., from the popular Ocarina of Time with some new things sprink... more.
  • Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker Nintendo Wii U Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on January 15, 2015 under Featured, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo Wii U Reviews
    Nintendo really knows how to give their characters identity outside of their respective franchises. Luigi gets to bust ghosts inside a haunted mansion. Yoshi gets his own adventures where he protects Baby Mario and scarfs down fruit. Donkey Kong protects his own entire island from evil reptiles. And now it's Toad's turn with his very own standalone puzzle game. Does it have enough substance for it... more.
  • Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on January 11, 2015 under 3DS Reviews, Featured, Nintendo 3DS
    The year of remakes continues! Between The Last of Us, Tomb Raider and Grand Theft Auto 5, this year has seen a lot more of the same, and it seems that Nintendo is no stranger to that trend this year with their Pokemon series. Oddly enough, the remake this year is of their third generation, Ruby and Sapphire, which throughout its near twenty-year history is considered by most of the fandom to be t... more.
  • Super Smash Bros. Nintendo Wii U Review

    Transparency Notes: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U has support for Amiibo figurines. In order to test these features several figures were bought out of pocket. This review is based off of the retail version not provided by the publisher. About a month or so ago I took a look at Super Smash Bros. for 3DS. I won't rehash my thoughts on the game, but I did state that the game's bigger console version h... more.
  • Five Reasons You Should Play Mario Kart 8’s DLC

    0 CommentsPosted by on November 25, 2014 under Feature Articles
    To those few but dedicated Wii U lovers out there, Mario Kart 8 came out with the first of two planned packs of DLC. Since this is review season and the holidays are right around the corner, in lieu of an official review, I'm just going to be upfront and tell you why I think, in no particular order, the pack is just plain fun and worth going back to the wacky kart racer. Old Tracks Have Come... more.
  • Hyrule Warriors Nintendo Wii U Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on October 2, 2014 under Featured, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo Wii U Reviews
    When Hyrule Warriors was announced, I tilted my head in confusion. One of the most beloved fantasy adventure franchises in all of gaming was going to get a spin-off in the vein of the famously dismissed button masher that is the Dynasty Warriors series? It sounded like a stunt and an excuse for fan service more than a fresh idea from the Big N. Fast-forward to the game's release and it is exactly... more.
