The worldwide launch of Pokemon X & Pokemon Y is upon us; at midnight tonight I will finally be getting my hands on my very own copy of Pokemon Y and jumping right into the sixth generation of the series. I do not plan on sleeping much over the next few days, as there are […]

Top 10 Nintendo 3DS Games

Over the span of time I’ve been posting on 3DStination.com, I have compiled two different lists of the five best Nintendo eShop games to date (which you can see here and here), but I have said nothing about my ten favorite retail releases. I’d like to change that now. To be honest, it wasn’t easy […]

Top 5 Nintendo eShop Downloads (Part 2)

Last June – roughly one year after the Nintendo eShop was launched – I published a list article called “Top 5 Nintendo eShop Downloads”, picking the five digital titles I enjoyed the most in the service’s first full year. Now, not quite a year later, the Nintendo eShop has evolved into a whole new beast […]

Feature – The Third Dimension of F-Zero

The original F-Zero was one of my very first Super Nintendo games; I had never even heard of it, but one year it came as a Christmas gift alongside several other classic 16-bit titles. I really didn’t know what to expect, but shortly after I picked up the controller, I was hooked: F-Zero was thrilling and very fast-paced, challenging […]

Feature – Ranking The Best Starter Pokemon

I was discussing Pokemon with my roommate and some buddies, as I often find myself doing. We got to comparing the five past generations, and I thought it would be a great idea to break down my favorites in terms of the “starter” Pokemon.

Feature – The Third Dimension of Donkey Kong

The first game I ever played and owned on my Super Nintendo was no Super Mario title – no, I got the Donkey Kong Country bundle, so my earliest 16-bit days were spent collecting far more bananas than coins, stars or rings. I loved all three SNES installments - Diddy’s Kong Quest had an awesome pirate theme, and Dixie’s Double Trouble threw some […]

Looking Ahead @ November 2012: Stickers and Scribbles

Editor’s Note: Just before the start of each month, I will “look ahead” at the upcoming games that are slated for release; then, taking into account the general level of anticipation and the “buzz” within the media, I will select a handful of titles (two to four) that could be worth checking out when launch […]

Blog – One Full Day of Pokemon White 2

To many of you, waking up this morning was no big deal – just another lazy October Sunday; another perfect excuse to kick back, enjoy some football and drain a few beers. Congrats; you’re the “normal” people, at least on this particular Sunday. For die-hard Pokemon fans such as myself, this Sunday – October 7 […]

The Daily 3DS Trailers Report (10/6/12) – A Gaggle of New 3DS Videos

I’ve been AWOL for the last three or four days, but apparently Nintendo and its various supporters have been busy launching off a gaggle of brand-new 3DS videos, featuring footage from games such as Professor Layton & The Miracle Mask, Pokemon Dream Radar, Shin Megami Tensei IV, and more. Perhaps the most exciting is the […]

Feature – The Third Dimension of Mario Paint

Of all the great Mario games released during the Super Nintendo era, I actually spent the most time playing Mario Paint – not Super Mario World, Super Mario RPG, or Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island. Mario Paint was basically a Mario-/Nintendo-themed version of Microsoft Paint, and even came bundled with a SNES-compatible mouse. The […]
