The NES Remix game collection had a few duds in it. However, I’m happy to assure you that I’ve been playing NES Remix 2 and this time I’m 10x better at all the games.

Is a Silent Protagonist a Better Protagonist?

Hardcore Gamer: Storytelling in games has come a long way since the archaic text adventures of yesteryear. From text to pictures to audio to video, weve seen cinematic tales unwind, while delivering lovable characters and excellent senses of placement. Great writing has catapulted games like The Walking Dead, Far Cry 3, and The Last of Us into cinematic spectacle, netting a ton of recognition for their intriguing dialogue. But while their characters usually have a lot to say, some more venerable ones do not. The silent protagonist may have been one of the famed features of old-school gaming, but the …read more

Wii U has sold just over half of what the GameCube did in the same span

gamecube-wii-u-header

Over the past few months, it’s been hard to deny that the Wii U hasn’t received the support it deserves from Nintendo. At the beginning of 2013, Reggie Fils-Aime promised that the drought for Nintendo games after the launch in November of 2012 would be over. Several titles were on the way and things were looking up for the Wii U. Then Rayman Legends was delayed for six months. Pikmin 3 was delayed. The Wonderful 101 was delayed. Everything got pushed back and as such, 2013 was more of a drought than Reggie expected. …read more
