GameCube emulator working wonderfully on Galaxy S8

Emulators and mobile phones have been a strong pairing for a long time. Each new generation of smart phone seems to bring whole new possibilities and now it is getting crazier. GuruAidTechSupport uploaded a video that has gotten the internet buzzing, showing off full GameCube games running off the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8. The emulator in question is Dolphin, one of the most respected emulators ...

Voice Actor Tuesday: Charles Martinet

If you have played a Nintendo game before, you have probably heard this man’s voice. Charles Martinet, to me, is Mario. Ever since 1995, if you heard Mario speak, it was this man bringing life to the character. For a character that doesn’t really talk, Mario has a tonne of character, and that is brought to life by the screams, cheers and joyous outbursts that Charles has turned into a ...

Super Mario-Themed Hot Wheels Could Be Coming Soon

Mattel are famed for their iconic Hot Wheels car range. It only seems prudent that as a 30th anniversary celebration of the Mario franchise that Nintendo team up with the toy manufacturer to produce six Super Mario-themed Hot Wheels cars. This time around, unlike Mario Kart 8, there isn’t a Mercedes in sight. Instead the following will be released: 8 Crate Delivery (Dr. Mario) A-OK (Mario Ka...

Review: Dr Mario: Miracle Cure (3DS)

Is this latest edition of the long-running Mario sub-series just what the doctor ordered or is it merely a placebo?

An 8-Bit Mario amiibo?

Are you ready to sing Adele’s Rumour Has It? Well, another ‘fantastic’ rumour is running around and it’s one that might get people very excited. According to various news sites, Nintendo of Europe uploaded a new image that includes an 8-bit Mario amiibo along with four Animal Crossing amiibo. It, however, hasn’t been confirmed and most likely won’t be until the ...

What’s in a loading screen?

I am reading almost nothing but praise for Bloodborne which has now released and I am looking very forward to Kyle’s review of it when he is done. One thing Kyle has already mentioned to me, and something I have read elsewhere (plus complaints on twitter) is that the load times are just excessive. It made me wonder about other games with long loading times and whether this was such a bad thing or ...

Golden Mario amiibo sold out in 15 minutes

Love them or hate them, there is no denying that amiibo figures are a money making machine for Nintendo. The limited, store exclusive golden Mario amiibo is no different, in fact, it’s probably the most popular figure in the range. The gold Mario amiibo sold out in a mere 15 minutes after going live on the Walmart website. If you really want to get hold of a golden Mario amiibo you could loo...

Are games getting too mature?

The last few days I have been in training at work, which obviously led to me thinking about things in the gaming industry (I was bored okay). I started wondering about how many games are made these days compared to what there were back then. Now a few things are a given, the graphics and overall production value have obviously improved considerably and with that new genres have come about. At the ...

Games of 2015 – Nintendo

Over the past two days we have looked at the offering heading to Xbox and to the PlayStation consoles, and today we are going to focus on Nintendo. The Wii U is often the ‘laughed at’ console that so few people seem to own, but to be completely fair it’s the console that probably had the most impressive exclusives in 2014, and looks to continue that trend in 2015. The 3DS is laug...

Video: Racist Mario…

I always thought Mario had a bad side to him. I mean, he always gets the princess and Luigi gets nothing. He always wants the limelight. Now the proof is in the pudding. Have a look just how racist Mario can be in Mario Kart. The next online session of Mario Kart might change things up. The video has been in orbit for just over a month, but if you feel like a good laugh on this Friday afternoon yo...

A cool fan-made CG video of Mario’s day-to-day life

We never get to see Mario’s life behind the scenes. He’s always off saving some princess, or racing and playing in some sport. What does this plumber get up to in his daily life? Dean Wright, who created a teaser trailer for Mighty No.9 animated series, worked on a video that captures Mario’s daily life in Tokyo (yes, we know he’s Italian). Have a look, we’ve no idea ...

Is now the time to get a Wii U?

I have heard this going around a lot lately, “It’s finally the best time to buy a Wii U”. That Nintendo’s new console has some advantages over the other next-gen consoles and is actually a better option. But is this necessarily true? The answer? Well there isn’t a right answer, but let’s look at the pros and cons. It’s easy to see why people are saying it’s worth getting what with quit...
