Why Nintendo Makes the Same Video Games Every Year and We Still Love Them

Nintendo Direct 3-3-16

Without question I consider myself a Nintendo fan. Compared to any other developer, I spend most of my time playing and/or getting excited for what I will soon be playing on my Nintendo Wii U or 3DS. Some experiences can only be on PS4 and what not like last year’s Fallout 4, but with Nintendo I have always felt they’ve done something special with their games… they’ve remained fun! Throughout the years and even during the short time I’ve been on this blog I’ve seen a handful of Marios, Zeldas, Pokemons, and many other Nintendo greats come and go. They’ve consistently been what I expect and then some, but nothing has been wholly “new” (with the exception of last year’s Splatoon.). After seeing Thursday’s Nintendo Direct, I’m excited for what the future holds: more of the same great faces Nintendo has always offered. But is that enough?

The Recurring Bosscast: 036: Pour One Out For Flappy Bird

Mat’s MIA this week, but not for the murderous reasons behind Jett’s disappearance last week (he’s just sick), so it’s just Jett and Jason this week.

Besides almost diverging into another movie review show, Jett and I discuss the phenomenon that is/was Flappy Bird. Having not played the game until very recently however, I can see why people have been addicted to it.

We also speak our minds about Nintendo, following their most recent Nintendo Direct, and discuss how we might go about fixing the Big N’s woes.

Nintendo Direct Impressions and Previews

A few weeks ago I was able to attend a Nintendo press conference in San Francisco! Of course I was thrilled to have the chance to meet some game journalists and play upcoming Nintendo games, but I knew I wanted to focus on the task and deliver a preview that wasn’t just me being a fanboy and gushing about each title. I’m happy to say that my first (and hopefully not last) article on Machinima is up, and it is all about the 3DS!

Mario and Luigi Dream Team Gameplay 1

Mario & Luigi: Dream Team

Games previewed include The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past 2, Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, and Mario and Donkey Kong: Minis on the Move.
