    Wii Does Not Owe U

    It is not a secret that Nintendo Wii U is not doing well. Wii ignited the gaming market but its successor took a U-turn on its fortune. There were a lot of schools offering their expertise on why Wii U is doing poorly. Nintendo could no longer hide it in its earning reports. Third parties […]

    The Dark Art of the Black Panties

    A friend of mine is playing a new RPG called ‘Time and Eternity’. The concept was very interesting – a wedding was interrupted due to an assassination, and as the bride, the player needs to go back in time, again and again, to foil the assassination plot and, well, get married. During the game you […]

    Under Siege: Enhanced Edition Review (PSN)

    It is rare to find real time strategy games on consoles these days, which is a shame (heck, the last I played was Starcraft on the Nintendo 64!). While the fast paced and frenetic action may seem best controlled by a mouse and keyboard, there really is something to be said for kicking back in […]

    I love my Cube

    Okay, I missed the last Podcast and couldn’t believe that I missed an epic episode on my favorite console of all time – the Nintendo GameCube. In fact I love the Cube so much that I bought two. Yes, one for the PAL region and one for the NTSC region. I am still trying to […]

    3DS and the portable space

    There is no doubt that the recent fanfare in the portable space is the Nintendo 3DS. After a spectacular showing at E3 this year, 3DS’ launch is shaping up to be a huge one. Everyone was expecting it to see the daylight before Christmas. However in a Nintendo-don’t-stick-with-tradition fashion, at a conference last month they […]
