Nintendo Online – Part Two

TL;DR After 12 days of using the service, I will conclude that in it’s present state.. it’s about worth the amount you pay… For me, I was most excited about the classic games, and I feel they’ve been implemented really well. For anyone who wants a refresh this link sums up what’s currently available, as well…

Nintendo Online – Part One

Ever since the Nintendo Switch came out March last year, the one thing I’ve been wanting to know more and more about is Nintendo Online. Courtesy of the WayBack machine, here is a snap of the landing page for the service as it was on January 13, 2017!.. Lets all take a moment to truly appreciate…

The Landscape of Retro Gaming

My initial topic was ‘Retro gaming vs Rom gaming’, but after writing a short draft I realized there was far more to the discussion. These days it has become so popular to play retro games that the options aren’t limited to rom’s, there are ports, remasters, virtual console has been a thing for a long…

For those unaware of this, however I’m sure everyone reading this would be aware. The information about the…

Portable.. and then docked.. in that order. I mean lets take for example Super Mario Bros 3 for the Nintendo Entertainment System. It…

The Subtle Joys of Speculation

As mentioned a few times in past posts, I enjoy speculation, as do many people in the gaming community. So I figured I’d post about my own predictions and thoughts on the current and future landscape of video gaming as it is now and as we move forward towards the impending 9th Generation of Consoles. I…

*Insert Nintendo Switch Pun here* – My Thoughts

^It’s time to Switch it up^ and talk about my thoughts on the Nintendo Switch. A lot of people have released videos and articles about the Nintendo Switch a year on. Which made me think about my thoughts about the Switch. People who didn’t like it, now love it, people who did like it, love…
