Kept you waiting, huh? Behold the return of MHOG! Our heroes have come back stronger than you can possible imagine. We have almost all made it to HR5 or beyond, we see the appearance of the Nargacuga, and we didn’t even need to summon our Megazord. Could you see us trying to pilot a mech like the Megazord? It would be so awesome, but honestly I don’t think we would be able to agree who gets to control which arm or leg.

Nintendo is doing everything they can to get people interested in Wii U this holiday. One way is by offering a number of quality titles like The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD and Super Mario 3D World. Another way is to try and let people know what they can get for their money. This infographic tries to gèt that point across.
If you haven’t picked up a Wii U yet drop us a comment and let us know when you’ll pick one up or what it will take to change your mind about the system.
If you’re going to be one of the millions of people out shopping during the Thanksgiving weekend there’s probably a good chance someone that you’re shopping for wants something Nintendo related. Well, Nintendo has just announced a few deals that you might want to take advantage of if that’s the case.
For anyone looking for a deal on a new 3DS system on Thanksgiving Day, November 28th, you can pick up a system pre-loaded with a copy of Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon for $169.99. Not this is one of the older models and not a 3DS XL. Walmart will be selling the 2DS for $99.96 on the same day, which is about $30 off the regular retail price.
Attention Target shoppers, the 3DS XL will be on sale for $149.99 on November 29. Cyber Monday shoppers will be able to pick up a copy of Nintendo Land bundled with a green Luigi themed Wii Remote Plus for $59.99.
All of this is in addition to the character themed deals on the eShop, which currently feature the first four Mega Man games for 30% off. The newest Deluxe Wii U bundle features the 32GB Black system with a copy of New Super Mario Bros. U and New Super Luigi U for $299.99 and Wii Fit Plus is currently free to download and try out for 30 days.
Harrison Ford is a great actor. However, he doesn’t do so well as a video game star. At least not in Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade for the NES; no the other one, the Taito one. Peter has to make some daring escapes, solve some puzzles and ride on a boat. Shall this truly be the last crusade?
One of the biggest problems I’ve seen, and I’ve told many people who’ve asked, is that people don’t know what the Wii U is. A year after the system was released there are still people that think it’s an upgrade to the Wii. If that one hurdle could be overcome it could, potentially, lead to an uptick in sales of Nintendo’s newest home console. In an effort to combat that misconception Nintendo appears to be ready to tackle the problem head on, as evidenced by their latest commercial.
You can’t really deny the fact that Wii Sports was the beginning of what would become one of the most popular consoles ever created, in terms of sales. The Wii ended up being huge because of titles like Wii Sports. People bought the system for that one game that came included with the console and for good reason. Wii Sports was a lot of fun. The five included sports; bowling, golf, tennis, baseball and boxing each used the Wii Remote in different ways to show you some of the things you could do with Nintendo’s newest controller. The games got even better with the release of the sequel, Wii Sports Resort, which came with an extension to the Wii Remote that made it even more sensitive and the sports more realistic. Bowling was included in that package and was made better. Nintendo is back once again with Wii Sports Club, this time adding features that many people have wanted since the beginning.
What You Need to Know
Wii Sports Club: Bowling is the third time that Nintendo has released this sport on their home consoles. You, and up to three other friends, take turns rolling a ball at pins located at the other end of a sixty foot lane in an attempt to knock as many of them down as possible across ten frames. The highest score wins. The Wii Remote is used to simulate rolling a bowling ball down the lane. The package has been upgraded this time with online play for up to four people, one per console.
We like Renegade Kid a lot. We like the games they make a lot. Treasurenauts has been teased on our podcast numerous times and through Twitter. Nintendo and Renegade Kid just released a new trailer for the game, along with a number of other independently developed titles. Watch this trailer for Treasurenauts and tell me you aren’t interested in playing this game. Look at all the treasure man. THE TREASURE!!!
Treasurenauts will be on display at Nintendo’s booth at Indiecade this weekend at the New York Comic Con. If you’re in the area I suggest going and checking out the game.
Nintendo is not being very shy about their love for indie developers lately. There have been promotional videos on Nintendo Direct presentations focused on indie developed games. They’ve talked up indie developers nearly every chance they get and this weekend at IndieCade they’re going to be doing it again. Dan Adelman, manager of Business Development at Nintendo of America, will be hosting a panel entitled “How to Self-Publish Your Game on Nintendo eShop”. Said panel will talk directly to independent developers about the process of publishing their games on Nintendo platforms as well as reviewing high-level business policies.
The company will also be highlighting a number of independently developed games at their booth. Some of them like, Shovel Knight, Treasurenauts and Shantae are from more high profile developers while others like Knytt Underground, Unepic and Siesta Fiesta are from less well known developers.
For the full list of games that will be playable at the Nintendo booth head past the jump. It’s kind of long.
We draw things, we guess things, we yell at each other. That sums up the video below. It also happens to be this week’s Go Round, Game & Wario for the Wii U. If you listen closely, you might be able to put together a list of our standard guesses.
