Could Super Mario Odyssey be a Donkey Kong Prequel That

Mayor Pauline, a Donkey Kong musical reference, New Donk City. The city area in Super Mario Odyssey has many references to the original Donkey Kong game and the Donkey Kong series.

Still No Switch Virtual Console, But NEOGEO & Other Third

It’s been just over a month now since the release of Nintendo’s Switch. One hole still punctures our heart. So far, the Super Mario Bros. have been more Super Mario No-Shows, Donkey Kong has been Donkey Wrong-Fully Excluded, and we’ve been Ann-oid at a lack of Metroid. There’s still no news on a Switch Virtual Console. […]Read More

6 Switch Game Tastes We Need This Generation

Nintendo have just revealed that the current Switch cartridges contain Denatonium Benzoate, the bitterest known chemical. This makes the cartridges taste unbearably bad, and is designed to reduce the chances children could swallow them. But is this really where the technology should end?   Sure, people say eating games cartridges is very, very bad for […]Read More

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.

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 6 Best Video Game Monkeys (And Apes)

Gorilla Boyfriend, a bizarre new gorilla/human dating game is set for release on both Android and iOS in August. Whether Gorilla Boyfriend will prove prosperous or preposterous remains to be seen, though video game monkeys have made for popular characters in the past.       Here, in no particular order, is my list of the best […]Read More

Four Mario Kart Clone Characters I’d Like To See

While I don’t doubt that they have their fans, the likes of Baby Rosalina, Metal Mario, Tanooki Mario and Pink Gold Peach are generally pretty unpopular choices for Mario Kart characters. Nonetheless, each new game gives us more ‘clone’ characters, and I use the word clone literally to mean another version of the same person. […]Read More

Game Theory’s Gorilla Sized Mistake in the Mario Timeline

I have to admit, one of the things I love about Nintendo’s mode of storytelling is the way they leave a lot to the imagination. Yes, I know, this could also be seen as a criticism, but I’ve had countless hours’ fun with fellow fans discussing the way that various Nintendo series work and fit […]Read More
