Nintendo Gets a New Spokesman — Sort Of

Nintendo logo

Nintendo's had several "pseudo-official" public faces over the years, highlighted of course by Shigeru Miyamoto and Mario, but for the month of February, Nintendo's marketing team has pulled an arguably weird stunt by making a dog the company's public face. That's because February is Responsible Pet Owners Month, you see. As if that justifies the decision.... Today, Nintendo of America announced it's teaming up with Uggie, the Jack Russell terrier "co-star" of The Artist, who will act as Nintendo’'s "spokesdog," … [Read more...]

Dragon Quest IV Review

Ah, nostalgic comforts. I remember the old days, sitting on my pa's chair as he searched the nearby forest for firewood. Our old dog sleeping at my feet as I ate cabbage stew and played Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen on my NES. That was before pa got his dysentery. Of course, sometimes nostalgia is utter and total malarkey. Like, my "beautiful" hometown, which is actually 15 Bed, Baths & Beyonds and Boston Markets pasted together with stucco. Sometimes, however, a nostalgic item lives up to the impossible hype … [Read more...]

The Simpsons Nintendo DS Preview

Say what you will about licensed games, but Electronic Arts is giving The Simpsons a franchise-worthy outing this fall with its entire slate of The Simpsons videogames (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, PS2, PSP and DS). But while the console versions are shaping up to be fun, the Nintendo DS version is flat-out astounding. In fact, pound for pound and pixel for pixel, there might not be a better gaming value this year. The Simpsons for Nintendo DS largely follows the core plot of the console versions, but in a 2D world and … [Read more...]

Crave Creating Its Own Ninten-cats

It's been a long-standing joke that Nintendo should do a cats version of Nintendogs, but we're not sure anyone was taking it seriously...until now (cue ominous music). Crave has announced Purr Pals, a virtual cat simulation, for DS today. Sure they're fun as kittens, but once that kitten grows up, how fun is it going to be to watch it cough up hairballs after licking its bum for four hours straight? Yeah...we just went there... … [Read more...]
