The fourth installment of WayForward Technologies’ Shantae series launches today, and the half-genie’s latest shape-shifting platforming adventure looks as good as it plays.
When Link’s gotta go fast, Hyrule pays the hilarious price.
You’re in first place and the finish line is in sight. Everything is going just fine until you hear that weird electronic whirring coming from behind. Someone’s dropped a blue shell and you think you’re doomed when all of the sudden it hits the person just behind you instead. Sacré bleu!
When going on a date in Hyrule, location is everything. One player decided to take the timid priestess Paya to his favorite location in the game: Hyrule Castle. After all, nothing’s more romantic than Ganon’s evil lair.
It is May 23, 2017, and somebody just released a video game for the Wii U. Congratulations to the publisher THQ Nordic for this impressive accomplishment, and congratulations to Darksiders Warmastered Edition for coming to the Wii U today.
There are over 700 games for the Wii U, and one person on Miiverse is trying to collect all of them.
Breath of the Wild players have developed a cheat code mod that lets you spawn almost any object, item, character, or boss into your game. The raw power this affords Link is incredible.
Even the best players run into bad luck. Dying to some enemies should be enough to kill a speedrunner’s attempt at a fast time. But thanks to some quick thinking and a tricky glitch, a Wind Waker HD speedrunner brought Link back from the dead and saved their run.
Here we are, hanging onto strains of greed and blues. Break the chain then we break down. Oh it’s not real if you don’t feel it. Unspoken expectations, ideals you used to play with—they’ve finally taken shape for us.
Mario Kart has been around for 25 years and the fun has never let up. How has the beloved racing manage to stay so exciting over the years? We take a look in this critical video.
Mario Maker’s last content update dropped over a year ago, but hardcore fans aren’t ready to let go yet. Instead, some of the community introduces new features through glitches, though Nintendo doesn’t seem to be a fan of the practice.
When most people enter a Zelda shrine, they try to solve the puzzles. Sometimes a shrine will accept multiple solutions, allowing players to get creative. Some fans, however, have figured out ways to bend and break shrines in ways that Nintendo probably never anticipated.
Conquering a game’s challenges over and over again can make you feel invincible. With a new world record in sight, one Breath of the Wild speedrunner decided to get flashy with the final boss. Too bad Ganon was having none of it.
There might be another good reason to pick up Mario Kart 8 Deluxe—no more obnoxious post-boost hopping. According to a video from GameXplain, the contentious “fire-hopping” technique apparently didn’t make the trip from Wii U to Switch.
The fastest speedruns in Breath of the Wild are slightly over forty minutes. Link wakes up, rushes to Ganon, and saves the world in the blink of an eye. But the game is full of treasures to find and other tasks to complete. A new speedrun to collect everything takes over two days to fully explore Hyrule.
In December of 2016, Nintendo launched a program with HackerOne, a service that provides bounties ranging from $100 to $20,000 for finding bugs and exploits, in order to stamp them out on the 3DS. This program has since been extended to the Switch, and so far has awarded three people with bounties. While some members…
Under normal circumstances, Cuccos are seemingly invincible: nothing can strike them without incurring the wrath of the swarm. We’ve even witnessed Cuccos killing mini-bosses. Cuccos are hardcore! But what happens when you throw a Cucco into lava?
Another patch hit The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild today. According to Nintendo, Ver.1.1.2 fixes “several issues” to make for a more pleasant gaming experience. No other details have been released.
Last year, a speedrunner managed to break through an infamous Wind Waker HD roadblock that players believed was impossible to skip. No one could figure out how it was done until now, and the discovery is shaking up how runners play the game.
