Amiibo Tap Isn’t Just A Time Limited Demo Player

When I first heard about Amiibo Tap, I kind of glazed over it. Basically it sounded like I could play a time limited trial of a classic NES or SNES game. Of course we’ve been there and done that with other releases. We’re gaming press of course though, so we took a look to see what this new release was and were quite surprised!

An Open World Zelda Like The Original? Yes Plz!

So Nintendo wanted to go back to the drawing board on Zelda and is using the classic original as a focus for their concepts. What specifically? Being able to explore in any direction, rather than just having an experience where you’re following a trail. What does all that look like?

Big World Map Returns in New Super Mario Bros. U

One of my biggest disappointments with the Super Mario Bros. series has been the drifting away from Mario 3 and Mario World overworld maps. I know, it’s all the same content but something just feels cooler about those expansive and wandering paths. Now they’re back! This means I’ll definitely be moving in with my friends who buy a Wii U later this month and gather around it’s warming glow in late November. This news is a complete...
