BioWare Details Mass Effect 3 For The Wii U

EA has been pretty proactive about bringing its content to the Wii U in time for the console’s new launch. Granted, most of the games are ports of older titles, but gamers who have just stuck with the Wii until now will surely appreciate it. One of the more high profile releases from EA is BioWare’s Mass Effect 3. The …

The Wii U’s Web Browser Is Surprisingly Competent

Game consoles have never had what you would call a “good” Web browser. Gamers browse the Web on their PCs, smartphones or tablets. There’s really no need for a paired down browsing experience on a TV that’s slow and clunky. Nintendo obviously doesn’t think so and have released the browser specs for its Wii U system. Surprise: It’s not that …

America’s Wii U Ad Is Brought To You By Dubstep

The Wii U comes out in just a few weeks and Nintendo needs to start convincing people that a new console is what they need this holiday season. Nintendo’s UK branch has already started airing an ad, but it leaves a lot to be desired. Back then, I hoped that Nintendo of America’s ad would capture the brilliance of the …

Nintendo Reports More Losses As 3DS Doesn’t Perform As Expected

Nintendo shocked the world earlier this year by announcing the first annual loss in the company’s history.

First Wii U Commercial Is Trying To Make Me Regret Pre-Ordering It

I am dangerously susceptible to hype. The Wii U is the latest hype machine that got a pre-order out of me before I could rationally think about it. NIntendo hasn’t done anything yet to make me regret my choice, but the first ad for the console is definitely trying. The first ad for the Wii U to hit the UK …

Nintendo Drops Wii Price To $129.99

It’s been almost six years since the launch of the original Wii console. Nintendo now has its successor, the Wii U, on tap to launch in November. So what’s going to happen to the Wii?

Wii U Pre-Orders Up For $1K on eBay

Either due to its popularity or due to manufacturing delays (probably a combination of both) pre-orders for the Wii U sold out in a manner of days and are now nearly impossible to find. Nearly, but not impossible. Anyone still needing to find a Wii U for the holidays can find one, but it will cost them. Intrepid entrepreneurs are …

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 For Wii U is Nintendo-Inspired Madness [Video]

It appears that Nintendo’s partnership with Namco has gotten pretty cozy indeed. Back in June, it was announced that Nintendo had handed over responsibility of its Super Smash Bros. games to Namco. While Nintendo’s fighting franchise is likely to get a Tekken-like polish for its fighting mechanics and balance, Tekken now looks to be getting a bit of Nintendo in …

Official ZombiU Trailer Released

When Nintendo announced ZombiU at this year’s E3, it seemed a bit out of character. The Wii has become a bastion of family-friendly console gaming in an era where gamers have grown up and are demanding more mature content. Perhaps for that very reason, Nintendo is making a concerted effort to gain more adult titles for the Wii U. At …
