    30 Jul 2014 | 10:50 am
    For years, Nintendo has believed it could reject smartphone and tablet apps, yet still flourish. The reason for this delusion is familiar — it’s the toxic Last Blockbuster Syndrome that doomed the consumer electronics divisions of Motorola in 2004 and Nokia in 2007. Often at the start of a massive trend shift in consumer electronics, dominant dinosaurs get one massive hit built on a nearly ...

  • PN Review: Wii Sports Club Baseball & Boxing

    Justin Sharp
    30 Jul 2014 | 12:14 pm
    I had originally planned to review Wii Sports Club: Baseball and Boxing separately, but they are currently sold together as a single Club Pass for $9.99. There isn’t an option to purchase one without the other. In contrast, the other 3 Wii Sports Club games (Tennis, Bowling, and Golf) were all sold at $9.99. I’ll be reviewing the unique aspects of each sport but scoring them as a single experience. For those who remember the original Wii U launch trailer back in 2011, Wii Sports Club: Baseball was one of the few games that were shown. It’s been 3 years, but fans finally have the newest…

    30 Jul 2014 | 8:32 am
    Master Reboot is a fascinating first-person horror game with a heavy science fiction slant.  The adventure takes place in the “Soul Cloud” where memories of the dying are uploaded to powerful servers.  This way people can live on (in part) in a digital sense, with remembrances going on indefinitely as loved ones revisit precious times.  It’s an intriguing futuristic story to say the least, whose puzzling details are slowly revealed at a good pace.  In fact I’d say the mysterious sci-fi theme makes for a terrific download that’s as much an experience as it is a game.

    With over 1 million copies sold worldwide, over 600,000 outside of Japan, Bravely Default’s success may have slapped some sense into the people at Square Enix. The company well known for some of the greatest RPGs of the SNES era, had seemingly lost the plot as of late, particularly with the extremely popular Final Fantasy series. Having veered away from the traditional Japanese RPG model, recent Final Fantasy games have seen a serious dip in sales, surprising for a series that was once a guaranteed seller. Enter Bravely Default, a throwback to the 16-bit era of turn-based JRPGs. Despite…

    Another new stage has been unveiled for Smash Bros, this time representing a series not yet visited in the franchise. The Paper Mario stage highlights some of the major mechanics of the series, as it is made of paper and is blown away by strong winds. It is currently unclear whether this will affect the gameplay of your fighters, but when the stage folds over and opens up again, it transforms into a completely new stage: the S.

    Who said the NES is dead? Although the system was released almost 29 years ago, the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) is still a fan favorite with retro gamers, as the diverse library of timeless games has been pleasing fans for decades. While homebrew rom hacks have become common place, not many people or companies go through the process of actually releasing a physical cart of their game.

    Released on June 10th, 2010 in Japan and later localized to Europe, Xenoblade Chronicles began to gather a following who called it a refreshing look at the now stale Japanese RPG genre.

I wanted action and fun. A game I can replay over and over again. Can Pikmin be that? I didn’t think so but I was wrong. Not only was I wrong, I’m happy to be wrong.
