Future Amiibo Figures We'd Love To See
on February 24, 2015 at 06:31 PM
With its all-star cast of recognizable characters, the Super Smash Bros. line of Amiibos served as a great introduction to the figures. The nostalgic elements of each character sold the figures for many, and their success has caused demand to be dramatically more than supply in many cases. Earlier this...
Test Chamber - Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
on February 25, 2014 at 05:37 PM
If you've got a Wii U, you're crazy if you aren't at least thinking about getting this game. If you still need some convincing, watch this episode of Test Chamber Andrew Reiner, Dan Ryckert, and myself play through two of the many great levels in Retro Studios and Nintendo's latest Donkey...
Developer Salute – Rare Circa 2001
on September 02, 2013 at 08:00 PM
A lot of great games lead to shouts of joy and adoration, but I had so much fun playing GoldenEye 007 that I got the cops called on me. Like many in my graduating class, the summer of 1997 was spent bunkered in my parent's basement with a stockpile of mountain dew and frozen pizza as I Klobbed three...
Mario's First Comic Book Appearance
on December 17, 2012 at 06:00 PM
He's been swallowed by giant fish, thrown colored pills at germs, and even gone to the Olympics, but Mario's first comic book appearance is bizarre for even him. Back in early 1983, Marvel Comics produced a comic called Blip Magazine. Here's one of the coolest covers it ever produced. This...
How To Become A Real-Life Video Game Hero
on November 16, 2012 at 04:00 PM
Everyone has their idols. While some people foolishly admire athletes and physicists, the rest of us appreciate more down-to-earth individuals like Master Chief or Commander Shepard. As with any idol, sometimes we wish we could be more like them someday. Here’s a guide to being more like your favorite...
Replay – Donkey Kong 64
on October 13, 2012 at 08:00 AM
Last week on Replay, the gang got into a heated argument that involved Banjo Kazooie, Super Mario 64, and 3D platforming in general. One of the titles that came up was Rare's Donkey Kong 64, which received decidedly mixed reactions upon its release. Thirteen years later, we decided to throw it into...
Hear Donkey Kong's New Voice
on December 06, 2011 at 10:02 AM
Nintendo has always gotten a lot of mileage out of not much voice work for its iconic characters. Even Daisy's sighs have a certain cachet to them after years of Mario Kart. This strong legacy is exactly why we felt it necessary to capture Donkey Kong's new voice in Mario Kart 7 in this short...
A Look Back At The ‘80s Donkey Kong Cartoon
on November 25, 2011 at 03:00 PM
It’s almost hard to believe that Donkey Kong was ever more popular than Mario, but after the Donkey Kong arcade game released in July of 1981 and until Super Mario Bros. hit the NES in September of 1985 Donkey Kong was Nintendo’s biggest superstar. He even stared in his own cartoon. Back...
Miyamoto Talks Wii U, Zelda, And Nintendo's Past
on June 17, 2011 at 04:00 PM
Last week at E3 2011 I had the fortunate opportunity to sit down and chat with Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto, creator of Donkey Kong, Super Mario, The Legend of Zelda, and countless other magical projects. We mined Miyamoto's mind for information on the Wii U, Nintendo's history, and the 25th...
Reiner And Phil Return To Donkey Kong Country
on November 21, 2010 at 08:00 AM
These Reiner and Phil videos began way back when with us playing the co-op mode in a Nintendo platformer, so if you somehow thought we wouldn't do the same for Donkey Kong Country Returns, well, you weren't thinking. Join us as we check out the first few levels of Retro's exciting new take...
Ten Franchises That Deserve A Revival
on June 30, 2010 at 11:30 AM
To the surprise of many, Nintendo’s E3 press conference catered to the hardcore gamer demographic arguably moreso than Sony or Microsoft. While the HD big dogs were busy courting the casual market that Nintendo already has locked down, Miyamoto & Co. showed off several titles that reminded...
