Nintendo almost made a huge PR blunder at 2013′s Evo by trying to end not just the stream of Super Smash Bros. Melee, but the tournament itself. Somebody explained to them that free promotion for your products is a good thing. This year was a complete reversal, as Nintendo not only encouraged the event but sponsored more »
is among the most beloved of the Metroid games. Which is saying something, because almost every game in the series is universally loved. But this one holds a place in the hearts of many gamers, which is why we’re all going to be insanely jealous that Europe is the only region with a Metroid Prime more »
Yeah, okay, that headline is eye catching nonsense. Now of course, the idea that video games can somehow make a person into a “man” is ridiculous. I’ve been male since birth (or as long as I can remember anyway) and to think that something can imbue me with the spirit of masculinity is absurd. What more »
I previously explored the 16 bit era and discussed some of the things that I felt led to it being video gaming’s first golden age. As amazing as those games were, they would go on to serve as but a stepping stone to the next “golden era” of gaming. After the 16-bit consoles came the more »
The GameCube was a weird looking little purple box with an inexplicable handle. Yes, it was really purple. It also came with one of the most unique controllers to ever grace gaming.

After an underwhelming Wii U launch and month after month of poor Wii U sales, many have started to question the strength of Nintendo’s grip on the home console market.

Happy Easter! While it is a religious holiday, anyone can take time this weekend to enjoy time with friends and family, supping upon the freshest of Cadbury Cream Eggs and Peeps, using the sugar rush to power an afternoon filled with video games. Word of advice: The cake batter Peeps are glorious. However, you could more »
With EVO 2013 coming up, it seems that Super Smash Brothers Melee still has some fight left in it. The fans of the game have raised $94,683 for Breast Cancer Research Foundation to make Gamecube classic the eighth game in EVO 2013′s tournament lineup.
Now that Nintendo is officially closing the GameCube’s legacy by not supporting its games on the Wii U, I’ve decided to pay my respects by playing through one more on the Wii. Problem is, I don’t have many around anymore. Most of those still sitting on my shelf are Zelda games, and you know they’ll resurface multiple times as distribution methods change. So, what to play?
The Tell game channel editor pulls out an oldie but a goodie that pits a PS2 against an Xbox in a battle of words and wits that could only have taken place back in 2004…
Okay, so this week I was going to try and simplify the BlazBlue series story. Except when I started to try, I only ended up confusing myself. I had about five paragraphs written up on Calamity Trigger, then realized I messed up and didn’t include some characters and it was a kerfuffle. (Yes, it’s a more »
