Horrible Newswire: Need for Constant Reassurance

Not much is clear in December in the gaming industry, at least until the awards come out. Until then, it’s filled with a lot of reflection and predictions and last minute shuffling for the next quarter of releases. The weirdest thing? The VGA’s turned out to be watchable this year. Predict that. Ethan continued to… Continue reading

ZombiU Game Curious Video: Or Don’t Survive

Oh look, Ubisoft made a launch game for a new console and it’s another zombie game.

Horrible Newswire: Clay Bookends

2012 is coming to a close and so is Nintendo Power. It’s also never too early to talk holiday sales figures or find new ways of making money.

New Super Mario Bros. U Review: High Fidelity Formula

Ever since the original New Super Mario Bros. was released on the Nintendo DS, the series has been quite popular. A Wii followup added a local multiplayer wrinkle to the familiar side-scrolling madness of Mario and 4 players on-screen at once made it difficult to do anything but laugh. Now in 2012, we have two… Continue reading

Hey! Listen! WiiU Grooves by Dj CUTMAN

Hey! loves its video game music, and one of our favorite artists, Dj CUTMAN, is back with an interesting selection for his game music remixed with hip-hop beats. Nintendo has put together some truly stellar menu music on its consoles, and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t looking forward to “hearing” what it… Continue reading

Game Hunt: Wii U

Console launches always lead to uncertainity around the availability of hardware.

That left me with 3 shopping days to acquire one before leaving it all to chance. How… Continue reading

Radio Waves for 11/21/12

Six years ago, Nintendo put out the oddly named and motion-based Wii console. Back then, it was a curious piece of hardware that begged players to get off their butts and valid the existence of mimes around the world, swinging at imaginary tennis balls and throwing punches at cartoon avatars until they crumpled into disturbing… Continue reading

Horrible Newswire: Think It Through

Ok, now I’m willing to admit that we may probably never get an Eternal Darkness 2 from Silicon Knights. So can someone else save that franchise for me? I’ll even stream it on Origin if you get it, EA. Speaking of streaming, we’ve been having a lot of fun with a lot of different games… Continue reading
