2K Games Pressures The Sixth Axis to Remove Negative NBA 2K18 Review

When it comes to gaming journalism, ethics are generally lacking across the board. We’ve seen writers fired for giving negative reviews to heavily publicised games. Websites have exchanged great scores for early access (as seen in the Drivergate scandal). And well, if GamerGate proved anything, it’s that a lot of journalists seem to band together […]

Cap Pikachu Event Released for Pokémon Sun and Moon

With Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon fast approaching, it’s easy to forget that events are still happening for the original gen 7 games. After all, the new titles have the new Ultra Beasts we saw announced and Marshadow has already been distributed in a decent part of the world. What’s event left to see […]

New Mod Allows for Super Mario 64 Levels of Infinite Size!

Over the years, 3D platformer levels have generally gotten bigger and bigger. You had Super Mario 64, with fairly compact stages where everything was within walking distance. There was Rare’s N64 games, where levels were enormous to the point they often needed the Expansion Pack to run at all. And then where games like Yooka-Laylee […]

New Poster Hints at New Villain Team in Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon!

Ever since Dusk Lycanroc was revealed, we’ve been getting more and more information about the differences in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. We found out that existing Pokémon have new forms and Z-Moves. That additional areas would be added to the game: Heck, we even got a surprise when new Pokémon were announced as […]

There’s a Copy of NES Golf Hidden In The Nintendo Switch!

When it comes to strange hidden content in video games, there’s almost no end of crazy examples. You’ve got Mario Kart Arcade GP, which has photos of a hostage crisis on the disc. There’s GoldenEye 007 with its built in ZX Spectrum emulator. Heck, there’s even an old Datel mini game collection with a pirated […]

Super Mario Odyssey is 5.7GB in Size

With many people buying games digitally, file size has been an increasingly important concern in the world of console games. It’s why modern video games using 50+ GB of space has caused quite a bit of controversy over the last few years. Or why Gears of War 4 being more than a 100GB in size […]

How Nintendo Can Save Mario Party

A few days ago, a very interesting Mario Party game was announced during a Nintendo Direct. This title (called Mario Party the Top 100) is a collection of the best mini games from the series, along with a board map mode seemingly styled after the original games. It’s a great idea, and despite a poor […]

Doom and Wolfenstein II The New Colossus Coming to Nintendo Switch!

Nintendo Directs are all about surprises. They’re not about the major games you know of in advance, but about the ones you never expected to see become real. The Mario Party and Metroid 2 remakes. The Hyrule Warriors style game with Fire Emblem. The new Yoshi game you never even knew was in development prior […]

Mario Party The Top 100 Announced for 3DS!

When we heard a Nintendo Direct was being presented yesterday, we had a fair few ideas in regards to what games would be featured. There was Super Mario Odyssey, which everyone expected given Nintendo based the entire event around. There was ARMS and Splatoon 2, which almost everyone expected to see updates for. And then […]

Nintendo Takes Down Super Mario 64 Online… Trailer

Over the last few years, we’ve seen a lot of fan projects get taken down by companies like Nintendo. There was AM2R, which was taken down prior to Samus Returns being announced. There was Project M, which suspiciously ceased development in late 2014. And with everything from Super Mario Bros X to Pokémon Uranium being […]

New Ultra Beasts Revealed for Pokemon Sun and Moon!

While Super Mario Odyssey was the main event, the recent Nintendo Direct didn’t just focus on that game. Instead, it covered a wide variety of titles for the 3DS and Switch alike, showcasing everything Nintendo had planned for 2017/early 2018. One of said inclusions was Pokémon Ultra Sun and Moon, which got a new trailer […]

Super Mario Odyssey: The New Nintendo Direct Trailer!

It was the promise that drew everyone to the recent Nintendo Direct. The main focus that Nintendo would base much of the presentation on. In other words, the stakes were high for this game. If Nintendo didn’t deliver an amazing trailer worth watching, the Direct would likely fail with it. Which is why I’m happy […]

Nintendo Direct 13th September: Liveblog

Well, it’s that time again. Nintendo’s holding a major Direct, and we’ve decided to liveblog about it from the site. This time it’ll be focused on 2017’s Nintendo games, with Super Mario Odyssey being the centre of attention. And well, with 45 minutes of content… it’s gonna be great. New title reveals, Mario Odyssey gameplay […]

Nintendo’s Bringing Back the NES Classic Mini!

Late last year, the NES Classic Mini was all the rage. A redone version of the original NES with thirty built in games, the system offered better quality gameplay than the Virtual Console ever could, and ended up becoming a huge phenomenon the minute it hit the market. Unfortunately, it was also rather difficult to […]

Let’s Review: Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild DLC Pack 1

Last Friday, the first DLC pack was released for the Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild. Titled the Master Trials, this pack included some new armour, a special Trial of the Sword enemy gauntlet and a harder difficulty named Master Mode to name but a few additions. And like every dedicated Zelda fan, I […]

Super Mario Run; A Decent Though Slow Mobile App

Earlier today, Nintendo finally released their second in-house mobile app, namely Super Mario Run. It’s been worked on for months, advertised like the second coming on the iTunes app store and had legions of analysts act like it’ll be the best selling, most successful mobile app of all time. Basically, expectations have been through the […]

Pokemon Sun and Moon; Great Games With a Slight Linearity Problem

It’s been about a week since Pokemon Sun and Moon have been released for the 3DS. And boy have they done well in that time frame. They’ve scored 87% on Metacritic. Boosted 3DS sales in all regions by a significant level. Heck, they’ve even managed to become Nintendo’s biggest ever UK launch successes, with their […]

Super Mario 64: Last Impact; A Genuinely Great Mod of a Classic Game

Two weeks ago, a technically impressive mod called Super Mario 64: Last Impact was released. Developed by a guy called Kaze Emanuar and featuring a ton of custom content, the game quickly became a massive phenomenon on the internet and was covered by all manner of sites. Like GoNintendo. Or My Nintendo News or Nintendo […]

Paper Mario Color Splash; A Decent Game Stuck Between Worlds

As you probably know by this point, I’ve not exactly been the biggest Paper Mario Color Splash fan since it was announced. I’ve tweeted comics about how Miyamoto killed the Paper Mario series. I’ve posted on the Paper Mario subreddit lamenting the franchise’s direction. Heck, I even used to constantly tweet under the hashtag #MakePaperMarioGreatAgain […]

Pokemon GO; A Decent Game Marred By Glitches

It’s been out for a while now, and it’s already become a massive success in the process. And so with all the hype Pokemon GO has been getting, I thought it’d be time to finally review the game as a whole. Does it really live up to the idea of real life Pokemon collecting and […]

Super Mario Maker; A Good, if Limited Level Editor

Well, after many level playthroughs, a good few weeks messing with the level editor and all manner of testing, we’ve finally completed Super Mario Maker enough for a review!  Okay, it’s a game that pretty much everyone was going to buy anyone (it’s a Mario level editor, how can any Nintendo fan not care for […]

Luigi’s Mansion; An Underrated Mario Classic

With Luigi’s Mansion Dark Moon being so popular and the possibility of a Luigi’s Mansion 3 always being around the corner, it’s best not to forget about the title where it all started.  Released for the Gamecube in about 2001, Luigi’s Mansion was a comedy survival horror game set in the Mario universe, where Luigi […]

Super Mario 64; A Classic that Defined 3D Platforming

With how 3D platformers and games in general have improved in the past few years, it’s very easy to think Super Mario 64 has gotten a bit dated. Heck, after the likes of the Banjo Kazooie series and Super Mario 64’s very own sequels, the original must really seem a bit archaic to gamers who […]

Super Mario 3D Land; A Good Game, but not Galaxy Caliber

Super Mario 3D Land is an unusual game. On the one hand, it’s technically a 3D game made by the same people behind Super Mario Galaxy, and hence has all of the tricks and game mechanics found in those titles, while on the other it’s about as close to classic 2D Mario as you can […]

Wario Land 4; An Underappreciated yet Classic GBA Platformer

Note: Since this review was released, the game has now been added for purchase on the Wii U Virtual Console.  If you have a Wii U, we would hence really recommend that you buy this game, since it’s absolutely fantastic and deserves all the promotion it can get. When it comes to game quality, the […]

Yoshi’s Island DS; A Kaizo Game Made Official

Not in a satanic or literal sense mind you, but more in a ‘this game is actively trying to sabotage your attempts at winning’ one. Yes, Yoshi’s Island DS is pretty much the nearest thing Nintendo have ever made to a kaizo style ROM hack, and seems to be designed by someone who thinks the […]

Mario & Luigi Dream Team Review; The Best Mario RPG in History!

As of a few days ago, Mario & Luigi Dream Team was released in Europe, giving me the chance to play it through to the ending. It had a tough job following up on Bowser’s Inside Story (thanks to its predecessors high quality in general), and some people were skeptical it could. After all, other […]

Kid Icarus Uprising Review; A Fantastic Game!

It’s by a guest writer of sorts this time, known as re11ding on the Nintendo 3DS Community forums.  He said we could post this up as a review, and since it seems the better of the few reviews the game got on the forums, it’s now an official one for Nintendo 3DS Daily. There’s also […]

Mario Kart 7 Review; An Excellent addition to the series

As the years have gone on, it seems like a fair amount of reviewers have begun to get tired of Mario Kart. With all the other Nintendo series getting regularly changed up and gimmicks being thrown in all over the place, the Mario Kart series has begun to seem like a series which merely makes […]

How to Get Lots of Free Compendium Pictures in Zelda Breath of the Wild!

In The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild, the Sheikah Slate has a feature called the Hyrule Compendium. This acts like a bestiary for the game, listing all the materials, weapons, enemies and other objects you encounter along with some useful details about them. Additionally, it also lets you track said objects by setting […]

How to Get Unlimited Korok Seeds in Zelda Breath of the Wild!

Getting all the Korok seeds in The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild is a right pain in the ass. You have to traverse the entire world looking for secrets. Complete numerous balloon popping challenges and boulder rolling exercises. And well, without a guide, it means you’re going to looking in every single patch […]

The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild; All DLC Item Locations

About a week or two ago, the Master Trials DLC pack was released for the Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild. This pack added in various new items and armour pieces, which were then scattered across Hyrule for players to find. However, their locations were actually quite cleverly concealed here. Indeed, in most cases […]
