Nintendo’s Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has received some short new videos that highlight its Battle Modes. These modes include Balloon Battle, Bob-omb Blast, Coin Runners, Piranha Plants vs Spies mode and Shine Thief respectively. Check them out below.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is essentially the Nintendo Switch version of the Wii U kart racer. It includes all previously released DLC, encompassing every single track and kart.
However, five new characters will also be added along...
With the fate of Sony’s Wipeout series up in the air and Nintendo in seemingly no rush to bring Captain Falcon out of retirement, futuristic racing games are an endangered breed. Not content to leave this niche dead, Shin’en Multimedia provides their own take on the genre with Fast RMX, bringing a strong core from the Wii U and updating it for the new hardware.
If you’ve never tried a game like this, it truly is an experience unlike any other racing game. Vehicles hover inches...20-03-2017, 09:44 AM
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is now out- and it is a sumptuous game, unlike truly anything that we have ever seen before. It is also a hard game- harder than any Zelda game in recent memory, harder than most AAA games, in fact. Taking a leaf out of Dark Souls and survival games, Breath of the Wild presents you with multiple scenarios where you can die.
One of these scenarios is in combat- when even regular enemies can take you out, bosses and the dreaded Guardians...09-03-2017, 04:34 PM
Comparison videos are starting to emerge between The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on the Nintendo Wii U and Switch. IGN and Arekkz Gaming already have their videos up which you can see below.
Though YouTube compression is responsible for hiding the differences in resolution, both versions look remarkably close to each other. There are some differences though and the Switch version does manage to come out on top visually, if only slightly.
A NeoGAF user also...04-03-2017, 02:39 PM
There is little doubt that game critics have grown a bit stricter this generation. Higher scores aren’t handed out as frequently and freely as they used to- until today, the highest rated games of this generation were all tied at 93. Critics have, like critics in other media, started to use the whole 10 point scale, leading to a tendency of grade deflation.
This is largely a great thing- it means the games that do manage to, for instance, cross the 90 barrier on Metacritic, are...02-03-2017, 06:54 PM
Capcom has announced that its umpteenth re-release of Street Fighter 2, the classic fighting game that basically ended up spawning an entire genre in its wake, will be hitting the Nintendo Switch this May. Ultra Street Fighter 2 had been announced for Nintendo Switch beforehand, but we didn’t have a release date or price- now we have both.
Ultra Street Fighter 2 will cost $40, and will release on May 26. Capcom promises HD and Classic Graphics Modes, Arcade, Versus and Training...02-03-2017, 06:43 PM

Zelda: Breath of the Wild DLC Pass Clarified by NintendoWhen Nintendo announced that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild would be receiving a DLC Pass for $20, fans were predictably annoyed. Nintendo’s Bill Trinen took the time to clarify why a DLC Pass is happening though.
Speaking to IGN, Trinen noted that the decision was tough, “Because we actually had a lot of debate in terms of do we announce it, how do we announce it. I think one of the things that’s unique about the way Nintendo develops games is when we’re working on a game, and certainly just knowing the history of Nintendo games, you guys know that it’s essentially we use every last minute to make the game as good as we possibly can, and really what that means is that the dev team was working on the main game, finished the main game, and as they’re starting to get to the very end and wrap it up, really they said, ‘You know we’ve made this massive world of Hyrule, we’ve spent a long time building it. It would be a waste to just make one game and have that be it.'”
He further noted that, “We want people to be able to enjoy exploring this world, and so they started thinking about, ‘Well, if we were going to do DLC, what would we do, how would we do it?’ And you can see that in the fact that it’s not…the DLC is not launching the day after the game or the week after. It’s coming out several months later in the form of the first pack and then several months after that in the form of the second pack. And that’s because the content is in development.
“If you’re a Zelda fan buying Nintendo Switch at launch and really you’re buying it for Zelda, I mean how happy are you to know that hey, I’m going to be able to play more Zelda in this world again later this year.”
As such, the DLC plan isn’t all that different from Mario Kart 8’s. There will be a complete game at launch but those who want to revisit it later can do so with new content.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is out on March 3rd alongside the Nintendo Switch. What are your thoughts on the DLC Pass? Let us know below.
