Today in History: April 28th 1989 – Super Mario Bros 2 Hits the Nintendo Entertainment System

When the Nintendo Wii was announced and it was clear that it would have motion controls, there were quite a few jokes made about certain types of games that would now be possible.  A bathroom urinating game was not one that  I remember hearing as a joke but apparently Team Iron did with Genesis Project, [...]

Donkey Kong Country Returns remake for 3DS (screenshots inside!)

During the Valentine’s Day Nintendo Direct, another remake was announced for the 3DS.  Donkey Kong Country Returns is coming to the handheld this year.  How will Nintendo rework the wiimote waggle elements?  Hopefully, we’ll get more button controls and less gimmicks this time.

Bandit Gaming: TailTale V1.1 for the Nintendo Wii

Remember Pokemon Puzzle League, Tetris Attack, etc from days gone by (circa late 1990′s)?  I was dreadfully hooked on those games for a long time and enjoyed playing each new iteration as I could get it.  Rikku2000, of u-ac.net, obviously was a fan too as he has released V1.1 of his game, TailTale for the [...]
