  • Blog Post: Story of Seasons Producer Talks Innovation, Farming, And Romance

    The name Harvest Moon is synonymous with peaceful farming simulation.

  • Blog Post: Here's Mewtwo's Final Smash Executed Against Seven Other Fighters

    Mewtwo is available today for players who bought and registered both versions of Super Smash Bros., so we decided to take a look at the new fighter's final smash.

  • Blog Post: Six Pointless Video Game Pets We Love Anyway

    Pets are adorable and we love them, but their true purpose is hard to define. They eat our food, take our money and time, and look at us with deep sorrow in their eyes while we eat dinner.

  • Blog Post: I Have A Picross Problem

    Picross is a simple little puzzle game from Nintendo that isn’t particularly well-known. It’s not affiliated with a mascot – or at least it hasn’t been since Mario Picross released on Game Boy in 1995 – and it’s not all that much different from Sudoku. It involves... More
  • Blog Post: Five Things We Want From The Nintendo NX

    Today, Nintendo announced a partnership with DeNA to bring its IP to mobile phones and to create an online membership that links its current hardware to PCs and mobile.

  • Blog Post: How And Why You Should Give Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate A Shot

    The Monster Hunter series has always been a dense and difficult nut to crack, but the latest entry in the series is a little more accessible than the series has been in the past.

  • Blog Post: Ignoring Amiibos And The Video Game Collector Itch

    Like most kids growing up, I only got a few games a year on birthdays or Christmas. I would inhale video game magazines to try and soak up information about every video game I could, confident I would only truly get to play a few. It was my way of getting as close to playing a video game without actually... More
  • Blog Post: Looking Back At 10 Years Of Monster Hunter With Its Producer

    Last year marked the 10th anniversary of the Monster Hunter series – a franchise that has found huge success in Japan and has built a small but devoted fan base in America.

  • Blog Post: Future Amiibo Figures We'd Love To See

    With its all-star cast of recognizable characters, the Super Smash Bros. line of Amiibos served as a great introduction to the figures.

  • Blog Post: Test Chamber – The Free-To-Play Pokémon Shuffle

    The Pokémon Company has embraced the free-to-play model with Pokémon Shuffle on 3DS, and we decided to take a look and see if the match-three puzzler is unnecessarily restrictive. Jeff Cork, our resident match-three expert and genre super-fan, and I played the game for a few minutes. The... More
  • Blog Post: Kirby Through The Years

    Kirby may just be a pink ball with oval arms and red shoes, but he's gone through a lot of changes over the years. Whether it's small changes, or entire changes in the properties he's made of, Nintendo has done a lot with a character that is ostensibly a pinks circle. In this feature, we're... More
  • Blog Post: Test Chamber – Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate

    Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate isn't the first game in the series I've tried to get into, but it's the one that finally stuck. Not only did MH4U suck me into it's world of perpetual gear upgrading and giant monster hunting ( read my review here ), it hooked GI editor Dan Tack as well . Dan... More
  • Blog Post: My First Monster: Diving Into Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate

    As a PC-first enthusiast that finds himself spending a lot of time on my 3DS as of late with titles like Etrian Odyssey 4, Persona Q, and Shin Megami Tensei IV because I love dungeon crawlers, my curiosity was piqued to try out the Monster Hunter series for the first time with Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate...

    Fake leaks and falsified video game documents appear online every day, but Omni Jacala's fake Super Smash Bros. Rayman leak is a cut above the rest.

  • Blog Post: New Nintendo 3DS XL Review

    Nearly four years after the launch of the original 3DS in North America, the system’s 3D imagery finally works as intended.
