Let’s Talk About That Nintendo Direct

I’m no stranger to crazy Nintendo-related speculation. I spent almost two years reading every Nintendo NX “leak” or theory or whatever I could find. What happened over the last few days was that all over again, except this time it was in a much smaller amount of time.  Continue reading

The January Nintendo Direct: Predicting An Event That Hasn’t Been Announced Yet

There will be a Nintendo Direct this month. I mean, they haven’t actually said that they’re going to, but they are. It just makes sense. We’re coming up on the one year anniversary of their Nintendo Switch event, which basically spelled out their plans for 2017. Plus there’s been a ton of leaks, one of which is an internal timeline for marketing the game Fe that straight up says that it’ll be shown during the January Direct. So, it’s happening.

It’s too early for me to give a definitive review, but I wanted to give you guys my thoughts after playing for around ten hours. Continue reading

Mario’s Odyssey

It’s not hard to imagine that the next Super Mario game would turn out to be really good. While the different styles of play presented in past titles resulted in people liking certain games more than others, I think most people would agree that there hasn’t been a bad core Mario game. Even with that in mind, I was not prepared for how much I was going to end up loving Super Mario Odyssey. Continue reading
