The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Review (Wii U)

by Eileen Cruzon April 4, 2017
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is incredibly well done. The graphics are awe-inspiring and the gameplay offers a solid and reliable experience.

Zelda Team Claims They’ve Cracked The Secret of Open-World Storytelling

by Peter Paltridgeon February 16, 2017
Open-world games are great, but they’ve historically lacked in one category: story. This is due to the nature of the game itself: stories are linear, and if you’re given the freedom to do whatever you want, controlling the flow of the story becomes impossible. Or does it? Today Game Informer published a video interview with […]

Nintendo Confirms Wii U Ceasing Production

by Todd Blackon November 10, 2016
The Nintendo Wii U will forever be a cautionary tale when it comes to how to make a console. Trying to bank off the successful name of a previous console won’t always work, and a gimmick that isn’t fully supported will no doubt lead to a console that doesn’t get unique enough games. Rumors have […]
