In case you missed it last week, the Nintendo Switch is still available on Amazon right now for MSRP, making this by far the longest period of time it’s ever remained in stock. That includes preorders of the new Super Mario Odyssey edition, which includes red Joy-Con and a copy of the new Mario game.
Last week, Nintendo quietly uploaded the digital manual for Star Fox 2, which will be included on this month’s SNES Classic hardware. But what’s really interesting is that said manual included a whole batch of concept art and game design documents for the canceled Super FX Chip shooter.
Welcome back to AVQ&A, where we throw out a question for discussion among the staff and readers. Consider this a prompt to compare notes on your interface with pop culture, to reveal your embarrassing tastes and experiences, and to ponder how our diverse lives all led us to convene here together. Got a question you’d…
Yesterday’s Mario Kart 8 Deluxe update fixes a lot of bugs for online matches, as well as making the game a bit more fair for players that are losing.
Everyone makes purchases they regret. You might buy an expensive toy, binge on cartons of ice cream, get a fancy dress, or you might buy too many copies of a Top Gun video game.
After a shipping snafu with Amazon, I spent the better part of a day trying to track a Nintendo Switch down. I experienced exactly what many hopeful Switch owners will experience. I hounded Craigslist, and haunted Best Buy, and waited in a too-long line at GameStop. And now I’ve spent the last few days living the…
There are few classes of consumer electronics that have had as exhilarating heights and as cringe-inducing lows as video game consoles. Since the Magnavox Odyssey plugged into TVs back in 1972 and delivered Pong to the masses, gaming consoles have demanded our attention.
The Nintendo Switch is a fascinating new game console built around a novel and well-executed central idea. It also has plenty of problems that will doubtless be improved upon in a future version. Nintendo is yet again trying something new, and here we are to take the plunge alongside them.
Today, Nintendo announced a lawsuit against a Tokyo-based kart rental service called MariCar.
Nintendo just announced a bunch of new info about their new console, the Nintendo Switch. Here’s what we learned during the big show.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will release on the Nintendo Switch. The updated version will include all WiiU DLC tracks as well as new characters. It will also add a revamped Battle Mode.
By most people’s reckoning—and ways a reckoning in this business can be determined—the Wii U has been a failure. Whether you look at its sales, the number of “classic” Nintendo titles it was home to or even just general brand awareness, it’s been a bust. But what do we know? We’re just stupid adults.
Most NES games have not aged very well. The Nintendo Entertainment System relied too much on antiquated principles from coin-operated arcades—timers, limited lives, inflated difficulty—that just don’t make for good video games in 2016.
Ladies and gentlemen, here’s the system that will be replacing the Wii U (and possibly the 3DS) as Nintendo’s main console. Meet the Nintendo Switch. It will launch on March 2017.
Last month Nintendo and Mattel teamed up to create the first ever Super Mario character cars. Each is a wheeled work of art, but with eight different vehicles at $.97 a pop, snagging the whole set might be tough.
F-Zero GX was a critical hit that, 13 years later, stands as a racing game classic for Sega and Nintendo. It was the latest in a string of excellent F-Zero games. It was also the last one ever made for a console. Nintendo has largely neglected the series beyond the mid 2000s, and as such F-Zero sits on the margins of…
You’ll never convince us there’s a better racing game out there than Super Mario Kart for the Super Nintendo. Hours and hours of our childhoods were spent racing those pixelated courses in our parents’ basements, but with the SNES only supporting four players, our races were never as intense as this epic 101-player…
Honda has taken their CR-Z sporty-ish(?)/hybrid coupé and given it a mild facelift, with the hopes of taking it from selling like hotcakes that have been urinated on by a dog to selling like hotcakes that have hardly any urine on them at all. And, from what we can tell, the design inspiration came from a Nintendo game.
Then get clicking on that box. Loudly, if you’re at work. And be sure to keep going past 100 coins.
