Let's get all of the misconceptions about Terraria out of the way immediately. Minecraft and Terraria are two very different games. Though they certa Read More

Top Ten Most Overrated Games

Top Ten Most Overrated Games

People love to throw around the words “best of all time” quite often in video games. Be it from misplaced nostalgic tinglings, or just shock and awe from the latest game design/technological revolution, it's safe to say we are easily impressed. But the world of video games is comparatively young. It is difficult to call anything the “best ever” in an industry so young with such a long future ahead of it. With that in mind, here is a top ten listing featuring some of the most overrated games ever.   10. Gears of War 2     Gears was always billed as being this console generation's Halo.  Well, it turns out that this generation's Halo was...well, Halo. Gears of War is still one of this generation's most prominent faces, but the sequel didn't quite live up to the reputation of the original.  For starters, the shallow yet badass one-liner heavy early 90s action movie storytelling from the original was replaced with something far more melancholy (and easier to franchise) which drastically altered the mood.  Beyond matchmaking, the multiplayer received no real game making innovations over the first installment, and the weapon rebalancing pissed off as many loyal players as it appeased.  Perhaps Gears 3 can offer a true step up in the formula.

Nintendo's First-Quarter 2010 Lineup Revealed

Today, Nintendo issued a press release which reveals their lineup for the first quarter of 2010, which includes Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, whose box art can be seen above, as well as new pink and blue Wii Remote/MotionPlus packages on February 14th. "Along with the current White and Black versions of the controller, now every player in four-player matches can have his or her own color." Of course, the lineup isn't limited to first-party offerings, though many of the "dates" posted are rather vague, including "March," "Spring," "Q1," and in the case of No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle, "late January." Hit the jump for the full press release. Read More

Penguins in the Desert to Hold Zelda Marathon Over Thanksgiving Weekend

On Friday, November 27th at 6 p.m. ET, The Penguins in The Desert Productions team is going to be raising money to support Big Brothers Big Sisters St.Catharines - Thorold & District. And you should help out by donating. Why? Because they've put together some great videos like this: If that weren't reason enough, they are also going to be holding a Zelda marathon, viewable at www.thezeldamarathon.com, where they will play seven Legend of Zelda games 24 hours a day until they are finished. The seven games are The Legend of Zelda, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, A Link To The Past, Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, The Wind Waker and The Twilight Princess. Read More

Random Video of the Day: Punch-Out!! by The Adventures Of Duane & BrandO

If one thinks back, they might have seen a rather cool Mega Man 2 rap video by a duo named Duane & BrandO (warning: explicit lyrics). Well, they're back at it again, and taking their... uh, phat beats (anyone? Bueller?) to another oldschool 8-bit classic, Punch-Out!! (also with explicit lyrics): Okay, I'll admit, this one's actually about five months old, but I hadn't seen it until now, courtesy of Topless Robot. But better late than never, right? Besides, I'm sure there are some of you who haven't seen this one. In any case, if you're interested in more of these videos, featuring games such as Pac-Man and Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, then check out their YouTube page. Read More

Miyamoto Asks That We "Wait, Please" for Kid Icarus

Another E3 has come and gone with nothing to lift the spirits of the faithful who wait for the return of goddess Palutena's most loyal servant and bodyguard, Pit, to one of Nintendo's consoles. Of course, as we've so recently seen, Punch-Out!! star Little Mac, who was not even a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, made a triumphant return recently, so nothing is impossible. And just the same, Pit still has his army of loyal followers himself, including some of the staff of Nintendo Power. And it was at E3 that one such staff member asked Shigeru Miyamoto if he had put any thought into a new Kid Icarus title for the Wii or Nintendo DS. Read More

Blog: When David Doesn't Know When to Just Shut Up

I am not a perfect man by any means; far from it, in fact. In that regard, I am aware of some of my own failings, one being that I can't leave well enough alone, and another being that I'm always second guessing myself when I say something, wondering if I've gotten a point I'm trying to make across as well as I could. And so, after last night's response to Lucas's "Ocarina is Overrated" article, here I am again. I visited GoNintendo, where I saw a link to my blog post, and was compelled to respond, as I felt maybe my view wasn't being interpreted as well as it could have been. For the record, this is not a cheap stunt for hits; in fact, that's part of why I'm doing it so much earlier in the day than usual, where it will likely be buried on the second page by the time the day ends and the weekend comes. I don't know how many hits anything I write gets, and I kind of prefer it that way; I'm sure Ken would give me such information if I offered, but I don't wish to be like some people that are driven by it. I just want to write something that people will find interesting enough to read, and maybe give some pause for thought (hence why I like to ask for your thoughts so much, provided they don't involve my entire family dying or just simple disagreement with nothing backing it up). That said, I just wanted to try to clarify my stance and what I'm trying to get at, as well as a few other things. And at the end, I actually kind of twist things around a bit for a different take. But if you didn't really bother to read last night's post and understand what I was saying before dismissing it and calling it a cheap grab for hits, I invite you to just ignore this and hold tight, as we've got some good news coming up here in just a bit.

Nintendo's Wii-kly Updates: Be Thankful for What You've Got

I'll admit it: Pickings often seem rather slim when it comes to updates to the Wii Shop Channel. This week, a mere two titles people are unsure of trickled onto the service, just as in weeks prior. But, it's really not as bad as it seems, or at least, as bad as it could be. Take a look at Korea, for example. Siliconera did, and let me tell you, it ain't pretty. The Korean Virtual Console needs updates like so many supermodels need sandwiches. And WiiWare? They don't even have it. Behold their full lineup, after the cut. Read More

Super Smash Bros. Finally Comes to Virtual Console... in Japan

Speaking of Virtual Console games, here's some news that will make some fans squeal with delight, though others may simply yawn before turning back to their copies of Brawl, or even Melee. Some may say the timing is a bit off, or even bad (as many wished for its release leading up to Brawl's), but nonetheless, the original Nintendo 64 iteration of Super Smash Bros. is coming to Wii's Virtual Console. That is, in Japan, anyway. The info was revealed on Nintendo of Japan's release schedule (Google translation through the link), which also features some other games, including Wonder Boy III.

Prince of Persia: An Underappreciated Risk-Taker?

When it comes to risk-taking and innovation, gamers can be a fickle lot. While they will often complain of franchises growing stale with sequel-itis due to rehashing ideas, it seems that just as often, attempts to reinvigorate a series will be wailed on by critics as a misstep. Super Mario Sunshine, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, Castlevania II: Simon's Quest, and Super Mario Bros. 2 (once people learned of the "real" SMB2, aka "The Lost Levels," anyway; what the hell, people?) are such examples of games which deviated from that which their predecessors established, and have taken a critical pounding through the years. Incidentally, I love all those games except Super Mario Sunshine, which I still kind of like in spite of myself. To that end, Prince of Persia Producer Ben Mattes sat down with IGN, telling of how he felt that his team took such a risk with the latest title in the franchise, and how it -- along with other innovational big-name releases of recent -- have gone underappreciated.
