The Wolfenstein 2 drama shows what’s wrong in America and the media

On the surface, the sight of “Make America Nazi-Free Again” offending some Americans should be a combination of frightening and disgusting. However, anyone with a passing knowledge of current events in America, and the integrity to dig past a thin fairy dusting of BS, can see why many, non-Nazi Americans would take great offense to the game’s slogan.

Nintendo is killing it with their Switch Era characters

Nintendo has been killing it with their new characters and designs since the start of the Nintendo Switch Era. Their designs have always been consistently good, but in the past four months they’ve introduced no less than 15 characters that have gone over extremely well, with Minmin, Twintelle, and now Marina going viral. Of their long list of great new characters/designs, only Link and Zelda were characters that existed before the Nintendo Switch’s release.

Examining Super Metroid, or how I define Timeless

Now that Metroid: Samus Returns has been announced, I took the opportunity to correct one of my long standing mistakes. I’m ashamed to admit it, but until recently, I’d never finished a single classic Metroid game in my life.

Why Super Smash Bros was never going to be at E3

In the lead up to E3 2017, many Nintendo and fighting game fans were expecting to see either an enhanced port, in the vein of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, or an entirely new entry for the Super Smash Bros series on Nintendo Switch. On the surface, it seemed like a logical idea: The new Smash amiibo are finally coming after a lengthy wait, and if Pokken Tournament was getting a DX version, then certainly Smash deserved one. However, while Smash is definitely coming to the Nintendo Switch, there was never a chance it was going to be at E3. Continue reading Why Super Smash Bros was never going to be at E3
