Jul 07, 2016 - 11:24 AM - by dascrow

9to5 Mac reports today on developments at Nintendo that look set to answer the prayers of all those who have been calling for the gaming giant to make a firm commitment to the mobile gaming market. In a speech at Nintendo’s annual general shareholder meeting, Nintendo’s general manager of Entertainment Planning and Development, Shinya Takahashi, announced that Nintendo intends to invest a big portion of its resources in smartphones and tablets.

Site ten years anniversary

May 08, 2016 - 4:11 AM - by DBloke
Other sites come and go, this one kept on coming.

Even after a load of technical cock ups, even after some of the forums history was wiped, even after a certain member said it was a sinking ship only for his ship to sink, even after one member decided to spam the crap outa the site, only to realise it took him longer to do that than it did to get rid of it all. even after that crappy RPG where everyone was a bloody Darkknight, even after a forum war that spilt over different sites, even after a cop turned up and people stared going ape shit, even after the "REP ME" thing, even after all the active members buggered off, even after the Wiis (and WiiU, might as well be classed as dead as its release schedule is dryer than a prune) lifespan ended, even after I took over the modding duties, even after the chatbox basically slowed the forum down, even after endless clan spam, even after a certain member had beef with me (ok change that to a few),even after Facebook came along and kinda killed off a lot of forums, even after it was passed into the hands of new owners that don't really give a toss it still kept going.
(Did I miss anything of note?)

These days it has served its purpose and is exceedingly quiet with some spurts of life, mostly by spambots but sometimes by members.

10 YEARS!!
(and probably not ten more)

Nintendo world championships to return?

May 13, 2015 - 2:57 PM - by DBloke
E3 seems to get lamer by the year, but one glimmer of hope is Nintendos own show and by "Show" I mean "Show" as instead of trying to be "LOL SO RANDUM!!" or being a corporate boredom machine (EA looking at you) they put on a show, even when times are dire you can look forward to something fun, bit like most there games.

Just watch the damn video

Coming soon, Nintendoland (IRL)

May 07, 2015 - 2:28 AM - by DBloke

Coming soon?

Nintendo have just teamed with Universal parks and resorts to create rides and attractions based on Nintendo's property's.
Could this mean we will finally get to ride a (on the rails) horse threw Hyrule? Or a Mario inspired assault course? Or a Metriod double down rolling through some alien style world fun thing? Or a Splatoon paintball world?
Or will this just be an existing ride re-branded with Mario just as a cash grab for those Nintendo fans that buy any branded thing?
(You Nintendo fans are crazy)

Will also point out that Sega did this years ago with the "Sega world" places round the world
The biggest being in London
Heres a promo video for Sega world

Nintendo news INFLUX!!

Mar 17, 2015 - 5:39 AM - by DBloke
Two bits of news

It was rumored that they where planning a new machine and they have officially announced it today.
So far all we know is the following
Project name is The NX, this will change as we have seen
More news next year
This means a probable 2017 release

In my eyes the WiiU never really took off, it was under powered when put next to the PS3/4 and Xboxone and due to lack of third party support (and it not being sold in all retailers in the UK) they should have a hard think about what they are doing with the new machine, they need another Wii (sales wise), they need something that isnt one of these all in one devices.
They have said that the NX is "New hardware with a brand new concept"

Next up is they are now going to be making mobile games, what does this bode for the 3DS? I dont know so DONT ASK ME!!!
They have teamed up with DeNA to do this,
The alliance is intended to complement Nintendo's dedicated video game systems business and extend Nintendo's reach into the vast market of smart device users worldwide. Under the alliance, DeNA will also be able to strengthen its gaming business at a global scale by leveraging Nintendo's IP. To ensure the quality of game experience that consumers expect from this alliance of Nintendo and DeNA, only new original games optimized for smart device functionality will be created, rather than porting games created specifically for the Wii U home console or the Nintendo 3DS portable system
Does this mean Wii (derp) will see Super Mario officially on a handheld with touch controls? As we all know on screen controls are evil and lazy (Looking at you Sega) but then again when a game is made with touch screen in mind it can end up being good (Looking at you Sega)
at least they are not going multi platform because as we have seen this is usually a bad thing (Looking at you Sega).
they have said that they will not be focusing entirely on mobile.

This means the WiiU is likely to be abandoned, but in saying that look at whats coming out for it this year.

Those Amibos took off didnt they?

New Sonic Lost World Details Released

May 31, 2013 - 12:02 PM - by Maura

Following on from the announcement of the exclusive deal with Sega to release the next three Sonic games only on Nintendo consoles, Nintendo has just announced the second of those games, Sonic Lost World, which will be available exclusively on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS later this year. The action-adventure platforming game sees the return of Dr. Eggman, who has harnessed the power of six menacing creatures known as the Deadly Six. The plot sees the tables turned when the Deadly Six turn on their creator, and Sonic has to team up with his arch enemy in order to defeat the Six. Sonic will have some incredible new moves for the new game, including parkour moves and improved Colour Powers, as he runs, jumps and races through the ever-changing terrain, as he attempts to complete his quest. The Wii U game will feature single-player and various multiplayer modes, along with Wii U exclusive features, such as exclusive Wii U Colour Powers, which can be controlled via the Wii U GamePad by tilting, touching, aiming, and more. You can also play the entire game on the Wii U GamePad touchscreen.
Can't wait to see Sonic's parkour moves!
