E3 2015’s top head-scratcher so far: Why would Nintendo bring back their dormant Metroid franchise, a series known for fairly quiet, careful solo sci-fi exploration, with a multiplayer shooter that’s also a sports game? Good thing I had a half hour with the game’s producer to find out.
Behold: Halloween Costume of the Day.
You might think that the difference between Nintendo's famous brothers is that one likes to wear red and the other wears green, or that one of them can sometimes jump a tad higher.
Not only is the Captain America movie better than it should have been (or so I read), but the Captain America: Super Soldier video game, released in conjunction with the movie this week, is better than we usually get from super-hero movie games.
I consider Captain America to be a bit boring. I mean, what's he got... a shield and some steroids? Still, I respect the Marvel hero's popularity and I think I know what makes Captain America who he is. So I was happy to see, early on in the new Captain America: Super Soldier video game, the scene I captured for you…
The newly revealed Luigi's Mansion 2 won't be developed internally by Nintendo, but by Canada's Next Level Games, the studio behind the Wii version of Punch-Out!. Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto is supervising the project, however.
According to our own Stephen Totilo, we might be in for a pretty good Captain America experience when the movie tie-in game drops on July 19, but you won't get the ultimate Captain America experience unless you preorder from GameStop.
When Captain America: Super Soldier hits on July 19, he's hitting hard, carrying America's flag to five different game consoles. Here's a look at four of them.
No matter how good or bad Sega's movie tie-in for Marvel's Captain America movie ends up being, at least we won't have to deal with a crappy Chris Evans sound-alike.
My starting point for thinking about a Captain America video game was a bad one: That guy's pretty boring, right? He's a strong man who punches, kicks and uses a shield. How do you make a special game from that?
Sega's video game tie-in for the Captain America movie features the star-spangled avenger infiltrating Hydra's mysterious castle during the darkest days of World War II. Sounds like a What If Captain America Infiltrated Castle Wolfenstein, doesn't it?
Remember that really great Transformers: War for Cybertron game we reviewed last week? This isn't it.
Unsurprisingly, the developer of the critically acclaimed Wii re-imagining of Nintendo's Punch-Out!! would like to make a sequel. Yes, Next Level Games enjoys steady work and continued paychecks apparently. But the proposed ideas for a sequel are what's interesting.
Nintendo's lead characters are rare among modern gaming heroes in that they seldom talk out loud. But rarer still is a Nintendo game that does include recorded speech. Punch-Out Wii did, and its creators explained why.
Few Wii games have been designed to please long-time Nintendo fans as much as the recent Wii Punch-Out!! Developers on the game recently explained to Kotaku just how the game came together, who did what, and what got left out.
Nintendo revitalizes Punch-Out!! after a 15-year-long break with the Wii re-imagining of the NES original. Little Mac and Doc Louis return, as does the original Punch-Out!! cast, for a decidedly old-school, but carefully updated homage.
