New Donk City – The Latest in a Proud Line

The Super Mario Odyssey trailer has doubtlessly made a lot of people very excited – including Donkey Kong fans. The game looks like it’s going to be fantastic, but what a lot of you may not have realised is that the realistic city which Mario was running around in was called New Donk City and […]Read More

Wild Gunman Comes to the Virtual Console – The Nintendo

So we’re now officially living in the future. I’m sure most of you already know this, but Wednesday the 21st of October 2015 was the date that Marty McFly and Dr. Emmet Brown travelled to in Back to the Future Part II and so everyone’s been quite excited about that. Including Nintendo! Yes, to celebrate […]Read More

Prototype Donkey Kong Country Info Revealed

If you were to ask me what the best SNES game was, I’d have a hard time choosing between the three Donkey Kong Country games. This trilogy was a fantastic way to breathe new life into the Donkey Kong series and is just as enjoyable today as when it was released. As such, it’s very […]Read More

Skylanders SuperChargers Preview – Hammer Slam Bowser & Turbo Charge

My German is very limited. Gamescom is in Germany. Despite this, the greatest language difficulties arose when attempting to play Skylanders for the first time, as the pleasant, multilingual Nintendo employee tried to talk me through it, deftly switching figures in and out like some kind of casino blackjack dealer.     I played through Chapter 12 […]Read More

The Best and Worst of Mario Kart

Nintendo often gets criticised for releasing the ‘same games’ over and over again and Mario Kart is perhaps a very obvious example of that. I find that each Mario Kart is quite a unique experience and each has its own unique strengths and weaknesses. As somebody who has played through all of them (not including […]Read More

For me, it’s probably the most exciting time to be a gamer. As such, I’ve been thinking a lot about what we might see this year, […]Read More

It’s Back Again and About Time Too; a Donkey Kong

I, along with many other Donkey Kong fans, was very happy when Donkey Kong 64 was released on the Wii U Virtual Console in the early hours of the 2nd of April. Not only is this the start of Nintendo 64 games being available in that service, but we’ve also finally got a rerelease of the […]Read More

5 Wrongly Overlooked Donkey Kong Games

The Donkey Kong series is one which I’ll always be hugely fond of. It’s full of tonnes of absolutely classic games, but for some reason, even the most popular  games in the series are a little less well known than those of other series, and so the more obscure games in the series get unfairly […]Read More

Will We See the Original Diddy Kong Racing Again?

I’m sure fans of Rare and Donkey Kong are still very happy that all of the Donkey Kong Country and Donkey Kong Land games have been added to the Virtual Console for the 3DS and Wii U (respectively). However, Donkey Kong Land III was not the last Donkey Kong game made by Rare.     […]Read More

Donkey Kong: An Untapped Smash Bros. Gold Mine?

Super Smash Bros. for 3DS has recently been released and it is an excellent addition to the Smash Bros. series. I got it very shortly after its release date and have been playing a lot of it in my free time because it’s just so darned fun. New additions like Pac-Man and the Wii Fit […]Read More
