  • What I Love and Hate About Super Smash Bros. 3DS So Far

    Published at Kotaku - 4 readers

    Back in the day, I bought Super Smash Bros. for the N64 on day one. In high school, Smash Bros. Melee was constantly hooked up to the TV of our dorm. So needless to say, I played a lot of Smash Bros. growing up. But for nearly 8 years, I haven’t touched it—until I picked up the 3DS game yesterday, that is.

    Gaming Enthusiast - - 3 readers - CD Projekt RED seems to have netted a few new juicy contracts, with a succession of classic games coming out for GOGcom. This is my personal recommendations list for the top 10 remastered, remade, or just plain reissued classics on GOGcom. We’re also stretching this a bit to include games with an old school aesthetic, and at least one straight up sequel.

    Shacknews - - 2 readers - Last week, Nintendo announced two new handhelds would be made available in Japan: the New Nintendo 3DS and New Nintendo 3DS LL (the Japanese equivalent of XL).

  • Ben's Gaming Memories - The SEGA Dreamcast (Happy 15th Birthday!)

    Netto's Game Room - - 4 readers - It's hard to believe, but 15 years ago SEGA released their very last gaming console--the SEGA Dreamcast. As we all know, the console had a short lifetime (and only had a handful of games released on it), but for some gamers out there, it was still a special console. I am one of them gamers. As a kid there was few things I wanted more than a SEGA.

  • Ask PSLS – Your PlayStation Origins

    … was an arcade gamer back in the 70’s and 80’s and being able to play games at home sounded fun. Started with the Atari 2600 and I moved up the line as new consoles released. The SNES and N64 were actually my two favorite until I got a PS2. PS1 and Sega games didn’t interest me back then, and I didn’t have near as much free time. Once I got hurt in a car…

  • The Saturday Morning Stream Plays Super Smash Bros. 3DS

    …. on the N64 and a fair amount of Melee on the GameCube back in the day, I haven’t really played any Smash Bros. in more than eight years. Also, it is 11 at night here in Japan, and I think it’s safe to say that my gaming skills might not be as stellar as I would like. Still, we’re going to have a lot of fun trying out all the new characters and exploring all…

  • How I Finally Made it to the Pokémon World Championships

    …I was a regional Pokémon competitive player when I was 11, you know, back in the days of Red and Blue. I had notebooks full of Pokémon stat formulae that I'd researched myself, all the strategy guides, a huge collection of the trading cards. This post originally appeared on Kotaku UK. I used Pokémon Stadium on the N64 to train—as well as letting…

Two new characters have also been discovered, however. The first is Dark Pit, from Kid Icarus: Uprising. It is presumed he will play in a similar way to Pit…

    … is the location of the analog nub on the New Nintendo 3DS. It's located above and to the left of the handheld's face buttons. Why Nintendo would place it there is beyond me considering all secondary analog sticks have been placed somewhere to the bottom-right of the controller. Even Nintendo's own N64 and GameCube controllers had their second analog stick…

Besides Sonic Adventure, the box also contained Tony Hawk Pro Skater (a game I loved on the N64 but had only rented it and never owned), SEGA Smash Pack Vol 1, 102 Dalmatians (a game my mom said we could return but never did), two controllers, and a VMU (memory card). As I looked at all of the games my excitement began to grow more and more…

  • Maybe The N64 Rainbow Road Isn't As Great As We All Remember

    …Rainbow Road on the N64 is the stuff of legends, so Nintendo set a high bar for itself when it remade the track for the Wii U. Many fans were dismayed by how much shorter it is compared to the original. But a new video from the brothers who hacked Mario Kart 8 makes a convincing case that the truncated version is a welcome improvement. "I don't…
