Game & Wario Wii U Preview

Game & Wario Wii U Preview
While I’m not usually a supporter of mini-game collections, the WarioWare games have a blindingly fast pace and off the wall sense of humour that keeps them from getting stale and makes then great at parties. Very minimal explanation is needed, for you just jump in and have a laugh. Game & Wario is in essence an entry in the WarioWare franchise, but one that in some ways misses the point of why I love the series. Game & Wario has several... 

Three Nintendo Franchises That Deserve To Be Resurrected For Wii U

Three Nintendo Franchises That Deserve To Be Resurrected For Wii U
Nintendo president Satoru Iwata recently announced that a new 3D Mario game and a new Mario Kart for the Wii U would be shown at this year’s E3 conference, along with the promise of a new Legend of Zelda game at some point. While I’m sure these will all be great, they are not exactly a surprise. Mario and Zelda have always been well-supported by Nintendo, with at least one release on every major console since the NES. But what of Nintendo’s... 

ZombiU Review

ZombiU Review
  It’s the dead of night, nothing but the faint glow of the Prepper Pad and my dying torch to light the way. I check my backpack, glancing up periodically to scout for potential threats. No flares, no ammo — just my cricket bat. I don’t fancy my chances against the three shambling creatures obstructing my path, especially in such an enclosed space. Hoping to manoeuvre around them, I make a run for it. Bad move. One of them manages... 

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition Review

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition Review
I’ll start this review with a confession. I’ve never owned a Tekken game. I’ve maybe played a round or two here and there, but never really sat down with the series. I’m in the same situation as many other gamers, Nintendo centric for a good number of years meaning I never had access to the series. With the Wii U, Namco Bandai have finally brought the series to a Nintendo console with Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and it’s... 

Tank! Tank! Tank! Review

Tank! Tank! Tank! Review
There are games that focus on telling a carefully crafted and emotionally impactful story, taking us across the world making friends and defeating those who risk harming the ones we love. Tank! Tank! Tank! isn’t one of those games. Tank! Tank! Tank! (hereby shortened to TTT because it’s a nightmare to type) is a game that says “Screw story, lets take a tank and blow up some giant robots.” It’s a great idea, and does something... 

Wii U Hardware Review

Wii U Hardware Review
After months of excited waiting, nights spent dreaming about Nintendo’s hardcore focused Project Cafe and time spent watching the realities come into focus, today’s finally the day. Today, the Wii U launches in the UK. As someone who banked all their hopes at the start of the last generation on the Wii and was ultimately left with a device that, while wonderful, lacked many of the games and features my friends had access too, I was unsure... 

Introducing the Wii U to the Casual Crowd

Introducing the Wii U to the Casual Crowd
I’m obsessed with Nintendo! I make no excuses for it! They’ve been behind some of the most influential games I’ve played, the ones that made me seek a career involving video games in the first place. I’m the kind of obsessed fan that spent four hours watching a Wii U live stream last week, then pressed play and watched it all over again just to see if I missed anything. I’ve got a stupidly large collection of Nintendo... 

New Character for New Super Mario Bros. U! Or perhaps not…

New Character for New Super Mario Bros. U! Or perhaps not…
Following the revelation that New Super Mario Bros. U will feature the first seamless world map in a Mario game since Super Mario World, a picture of a new character has been released. Yes, this is Nabbit. He will run around the world map, stealing things from Toads. If you catch him, you’ll be rewarded with a P-Acorn, a more powerful version of the Squirrel Acorn seen in trailers that will let you fly for endless amounts of time (like the P-Wing).... 

Tank! Tank! Tank! Preview

Tank! Tank! Tank! Preview
For many people, this weekend’s MCM Expo will be their first chance to get their hands on Nintendo’s upcoming console, the Wii U. Alongside the first party games we covered earlier this month (all of which are playable in the Nintendo area of the Expo), Namco Bandai have brought along a couple of their Wii U games. One of their game’s playable at this weekend’s event is Tank! Tank! Tank! Based on an old arcade game of the... 

MCM Buzz Play the Wii U

MCM Buzz Play the Wii U
Many of the writers at MCMBuzz, myself included, are the sort of gamers always looking forward to the next big thing and when it comes to big things in the video game industry you don’t get much bigger than the launch of a new system. Since the Wii U was announced, with its uniquely large controller with a built in touch screen, I’ve been eager to get my hands on the system and see how it performs in person. Having spent several hours...
