If you know the ending why bother playing?

*(Read with cau­tion, spoil­ers abound)* I final­ly did it. After putting it off and off again I final­ly bought The Leg­end of Zel­da: Twi­light Princess. I know, I know the game has been out since 2006 and I am on my sec­ond Wii (sold the first); but I always thought shelling out $50 for a five year old game was kind of absurd (at least since it was still read­i­ly avail­able). Well, on Sun­day Nin­ten­do released their “hits” line in the form of “Nin­ten­do Selects” and Twi­light Princess just hap­pened to be one of the four titles they released for the right price of $19.99. So with a coupon and $15 gift card I got the game for free (tech­ni­cal­ly), and start­ed to play it. The only thing about this sto­ry is I have seen and played the end­ing ofRead more…

Explaining Gaming to Those Who Don’t Understand

I sup­pose as a for­mer almost-edu­­ca­­tor, I should touch on the edu­ca­tion­al aspects of gam­ing.  I have had to defend my play­ing World of War­craft, Halo, even Mario Cart and Super Smash Bro’s on my old N64 to my moth­er, a firm believ­er in activ­i­ties that devel­op men­tal clar­i­ty and knowl­edge.   So, while this top­ic may not be about the newest game or an excit­ing review, it has to poten­tial to be help­ful to the younger read­ers that find them­selves try­ing to defend them­selves to the parental fig­ures in their lives.  Now, I want to make some­thing clear so I don’t have hate mail.  I am not going to make a clear cut list of what is edu­ca­tion­al about each game.  Instead, I am going attempt to help you learn to dis­cern what parts you share with that nosy par­entRead more…

New Price Point for Wii

We have all noticed the Wii slip­ping in sales over the years and the whole motion con­trol gim­ick has been sur­passed by Xbox’s Kinect as well as Playsta­tions Move. To com­bat this Nin­ten­do announce a price drop. This will be the con­soles sec­ond price drop since its release in 2006. The first drop was from 249.99 to 199.99. Now the Wii will retail for 149.99. To add incen­tive to the offer the Wii will come with Mario Kart and the rac­ing wheel acces­so­ry. Also Nin­ten­do will release some 20 dol­lar games such as The Leg­end of Zel­da: Twi­light Princess, Ani­mal Cross­ing: City Folk, Mario Super Slug­gers and Wii Sports. Now this is all good and fine but rumor around the indus­try is that Nin­ten­do will unveil a new con­sole at E3 only a month a way. Will con­sumers real­ly wantRead more…

Games for Gameless Situations: The Legend of Zelda Series

Nin­ten­do is great at mak­ing games that are aimed at chil­dren but fun for all ages. Mario titles are numer­ous, and almost all of  them are very good. How­ev­er, Nin­ten­do them­selves rarely dab­ble in the swords and sor­cery fan­ta­sy world, pre­fer­ring com­plete­ly orig­i­nal worlds of their own inven­tion. The one per­ma­nent foothold they have in a world that’s sim­i­lar to, but still far from the fan­ta­sy norm is The Leg­end of Zel­da, the one series that makes a dude wear­ing white tights and a green dress tunic look total­ly badass. ^ You could be Link for Hal­loween, and for the oth­er days of the year your sis­ter had a nice 2‑piece out­fit. Now, these days hand­held Zel­da plays a lit­tle dif­fer­ent­ly than con­sole Zel­da. Even with 3D, the new hand­held titles stick to the top-down cam­era angle that has allRead more…

Gamer Charities… Changing the Lives of Children Forever

When we turn on the TV, Radio or even read arti­cles on the web all we see are adver­tise­ments for the lat­est and great­est, news or hor­rors befalling some poor coun­try or state, or any oth­er num­ber of atroc­i­ties that fall upon the liv­ing.  The news only seems to rec­og­nize the rich and pow­er­ful or bad news.  I think it’s time to rec­og­nize the peo­ple who go out and try to make a dif­fer­ence  in the world and change it for the bet­ter.  While I may not have the mass resources of a major broad­cast­ing com­pa­ny or an Oil exec I think the recog­ni­tion is impor­tant. Many of you prob­a­bly have nev­er heard of Child­sPlay­Char­i­ty or The­Hum­ble­Bun­dle as they are not adver­tised across the net and lets face it many of us, espe­cial­ly in the Unit­ed States tend to for­getRead more…

Games for Gameless Situations: Pokémon

Brace your­selves. We’re going back on a trip to the mid-to-late 90’s. A lot of you were prob­a­bly play­ing ear­ly FPSes or RTSes at this point behind good old CRT mon­i­tors, ball mouse in one hand and “gen­er­ic-old-com­put­er-beige” key­board under the oth­er. Did any of you have a lit­tle broth­er? Maybe even a lit­tle sis­ter? If you were born between 89 and 94, or had a sib­ling who was, chances are you were EXTREMELY famil­iar with this one word. Poké­mon. Prop­er­ly pro­nounced Poke- EH (like a cana­di­an)- Mon, but fre­quent­ly pro­nounced Pokey­mon or Pokeuh­mon. It was a game. It was a TV show. It was a toy fran­chise. It was my entire world for so many years. The grip that Poké­mon had on my gen­er­a­tion was uncan­ny, almost unholy. It was a reli­gion, a sci­ence, a job, a sport, aRead more…

Things to know about the Nintendo 3DS

Today 3DS games will hit the shelves five days before the 3DS sys­tem itself. Such games will include The Sims, Mad­den, Ridge Rac­er, and Ghost Recon to name a few. So in light of the upcom­ing release here is a few things to note about the 3DS. — The 3DS is back­ward com­pat­i­ble with all DS games (non-3DS games will not use the 3D effect) — Nin­ten­do added a left joy­stick for bet­ter move­ment and accu­ra­cy — Added “Home” but­ton. This will pause the game allow­ing you to to access oth­er items like the Nin­ten­do shop with­out hav­ing to stop the game — The light for bat­tery now shows oth­ers col­ors for oth­er noti­fi­ca­tions. Red- low bat­tery, Green — nor­mal, Orange — Friend, Blue — Wi-Fi — The 3D effect can be turned up, turned down, or com­plete­ly turned offRead more…
