The Somewhat Disturbing Mario Magazine You Didn’t Know Existed

As you may know, the Mario franchise is no stranger to controversy. Oh sure, the platformers and party esque spinoffs tend to be lighter in tone and it’s probable the new movie will follow suit, but outside of the mainstream there’s some pretty messed up stuff. Stuff like: A comic where Wario teams up with […]

As you likely know, Luigi’s Mansion got a sequel on the 3DS back in 2011.

WarioWare Gold is Coming to the Nintendo 3DS!

It’s been a long time coming hasn’t it? Indeed, ever since the 3DS was first announced back in 2011, people have constantly wondered about the possibility of a WarioWare game for the system. After all, it’s got the touch screen and microphone. It’s got the gyro sensor and camera. Heck, it’s basically got every control […]

Flight Sim Developer Put Malware in Their Product, Called it DRM

Over the years, we’ve seen some pretty damn terrible DRM in video games. We’ve seen stuff that could accidentally wipe out or cause security holes in someone’s computer due to its creator’s sheer incompetence. We’ve seen rip-off schemes where even playing a single player title requires internet access at all times. And well, with a […]

A Quick Update from Gaming Reinvented

As you may have noticed, updates have been pretty slow here on Gaming Reinvented. But don’t panic, there is a reason for this. Namely, I’m redesigning the entire website. Why? Well to be honest, there are two reasons. Firstly, the existing site doesn’t really work for its purpose at the moment. It’s meant to be […]

Super Mario Odyssey: A Fantastic Game Which Revitalises A Stale Series

As you may have noticed, there haven’t been a whole lot of updates on Gaming Reinvented in the last few days or so. That’s because for all that time, I’ve been playing Super Mario Odyssey on the Nintendo Switch instead. Seriously, I’ve been doing everything in this game. Beating the main story, getting every Moon […]

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.

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.

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.

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 […]

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.

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.

Indeed, in most cases […]
