Nintendo will be just fine. I say this having not played any of its games at PAX Prime 2014. The only thing I have to go on is their slate of games scheduled to release between now and 2015 and the fact every Nintendo station at PAX had a crowd each time I walked by. more »

Buy the 3DS and Wii U Super Smash Bros, get music!

I don’t have a Wii U (it’s hard getting electricity out here in my mystical glade, and fairy dust only powers things for so long), but if I did, Super Smash Bros would be on my to-buy list. It’s definitely on my to-buy list for my 3DS. This is because Nintendo has always delivered a more »
