German game developer Shin’en Multimedia has released the very first in-engine screenshot for Fast Racing Neo for the Wii U. All I have to say is that: it doesn’t disappoint. Continue reading

Teslagrad Launches On The Wii U


Another break from all the #GamerGate stuff… eat it up while it’s here. Anyway, indie developers The Rain Games has announced that the Wii U version of Teslagrad has officially launched on Nintendo’s console. I’ve been following this title since its early days on the media circuits and I have to say that I’m super-glad that this has finally launched on the Wii U. Continue reading

Mighty No. 9 Reminds Us Why It’s Good To Be A Gamer

Mighty No. 9

With all the vitriol spewed over the past couple of days from out-of-touch, quasi-pseudo-aristocratic hipsters posing as games journalists, it’s nice to see something refreshing and positive in the industry. What am I talking about? I’m talking about Comcept’s latest trailer for the upcoming game Mighty No. 9… yep, that’s right, the same game that the gaming community, real gamers, contributed to when it was on Kickstarter in order to turn it into a reality. The whole project is a celebration of game culture and the latest trailer really hammers that point home when you see how people who love games help fund a game being made by people who love to create them.

Super Smash Bros Character Roster Leaked For Wii U, 3DS

Super Smash Bros Wii U

A somewhat complete list of the character roster for Super Smash Bros. on the 3DS and Wii U has been leaked. Allegedly an employee let loose some of the details while doing some testing for Nintendo, spewing some of the beans like an angry child tipping over their bowl while sitting in a training chair. Not only did “Mr. Leaker” drop some fresh details about the character roster but he also posted up some images of the game’s trophies. Continue reading

Hyrule Warriors Off To Slow Start In Japan, But Wii U Is Rocking The Charts


Koei Tecmo and Nintendo’s latest collaboration didn’t get off to the greatest start in Japan. Reports are indicating that Hyrule Warriors has only moved 57.33% of its software shipments to retailers, putting it at only 69,090 copies sold-through to customers. However, where the software has come up short, the Wii U has succeeded. Nintendo’s little console-that-could is back to rocking the charts in Japan like a noisy neighbor in a cheap motel bumping and grinding the walls hard enough to make the chipped plaster rain from the shaky ceiling.

#OperationPlatinum Aims To Get Bayonetta 2 To Sell 1 Million On Wii U

Bayonetta 2

There’s a social movement in the works that aims to gather up the royal rage, the holy hubris and the optimized optimism of the Nintendo gaming community to turn a seemingly impossible task into a reality: make Bayonetta 2 sell one million copies on the Wii U. It sounds far fetched and it seems kind of ridiculous, but it’s all part of a reaction to the AAA publishers who claim that Nintendo fans don’t support mature games, and that the Wii U isn’t worth supporting.

Nefarious, Platformer Where Players Are The Bad Guy Aims For Wii U Release


A new game from a group of independent artists and designers called Nefarious sees players assuming the role of the evil villain, appropriately named Crow. The objective of the game? Kidnap princesses, thwart the police and defeat the main hero. The game is every bit as comically nefarious as its name and the art-style and theme is so bewildering that it’s actually quite genius. The game is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter at the moment, and one of its main release platforms is the eighth gen’s most under-appreciated home console… no, I’m not talking about the Ouya; I’m talking about the Wii U.
