YouTube Highlights: November 2016

Happy Thanksgiving! (Or, happy Thursday if Thanksgiving isn’t your thing.) Though it’s a holiday for us, we’re not taking a break from posting our monthly highlights from YouTube. If anything, we’re more than thankful for our subscribers and supporters there, and here…and everywhere. Thanks to you, you..and YOU! To everyone who’s motivated us to keep…

Pure Speculation: Will the NX Save Nintendo?

It is widely known that the Wii U has suffered a rather poor reception, and as a less than proud owner of the console for about two years now, it takes no stretch of the imagination to understand why this is.  In all that time, my Wii U has been largely used for recording gameplay…

Nintendo and I: Is the End is Nigh?

Three years ago, I contemplated why I had not yet established a relationship with the Wii U. The console had then been out for number of months, and as a self-prescribed “super” Nintendo fan, I had yet to jump on the Wii U bandwagon. Though I was enamored with the likes of Super Mario 3D…

Petitions and Video Games Don’t Mix

Like many series, the Paper Mario games have been caught in a downward spiral from which they don’t yet seem capable of recovering.  While Super Paper Mario was certainly not the most popular game in the franchise, it was not until Sticker Star that I believe the series’ decay became clear.  Not long ago, I…

New Details Revealed for Zelda Wii U

I am not typically one to follow news of any kind, video game news included.  From time to time, however, a tidbit of knowledge catches my eye, more often than not relating to the select series I hold nearest to my heart.  One of those is The Legend of Zelda.  Games from this series are…

#Listmas2015: My Favorite Yoshies in Yoshi’s Woolly World

Despite any personal issues that I’m still working on with Yoshi’s Woolly World, it’s still one of the best current platformers on the WiiU. Helping that cause, at least as far as I’m concerned, is the fact that in the game you can “knit” together a multitude of different Yoshies, thereby ending up with quite…

The Completionist Strikes Back

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times: I am not a completionist. It’s true that I like to play a game till I feel like I’ve gotten my money’s worth, but rarely has that translated into garnering a game’s every last item/armor/achievement/trophy/quest/etc. With some games, like with Red Dead Redemption and…

Just when I thought it might be time to turn in the Wii U…

  My relationship with the Wii U has been complicated from the start. When it was first announced, I was confused. When it was first released, I was curious. When its commercials saturated my vision, I was frustrated. When its games trickled out, I was bored, except when it came to Super Mario 3D World,…

The Smash Ballot

You may or may not have heard of the Smash Ballot, a site that’s letting people vote for which character they would like added to the current Super Smash Bros.  (As DLC, I believe.)  I was pretty excited when I heard about this, as I definitely have some characters in mind that I would love…

Saturday Video Round Up: August 9 – 15

The following post was submitted by Gamer Crash. See more trailers and news at GamerCrash.com! – With GamesCom now at an end and the giant trailer explosion a thing of last week, the industry has settled a bit. Unfortunately for us here at the Round Up, that means significantly less videos to give to you, dear…

The following post was submitted by Gamer Crash. See more trailers and news at GamerCrash.com! – Hey look, it’s August! Where does the time go? As we slowly exit the dry, barren wasteland that is July, the release schedule starts to slowly accelerate. This is certainly good news for the Round Up as we near game…
