Can you believe this game is actually in stores? After what feels like an eternity, Pikmin 3 has finally released for Wii U. Don’t believe me? Take a look at the game’s launch trailer above!

One of my favorite games from E3 was Cloudberry Kingdom, the downloadable platformer that can best be described as Mario on hard mode. The chaos gets amplified when you add a crap ton of obstacles, and four player local multiplayer. If you aren’t familiar with the title, check out the new launch trailer.
Cloudberry Kingdom releases this week across PS3, PC, and Nintendo’s eShop, and soon to the Xbox 360.

The best band everrrR Anamanaguchi has a new single called “Meow,” and the music video is the tits. It’s basically my life story, from conception to now-hood. There’s neon and pizza and arcades. Go watch it above this boring text. zzzzz
Part of the allure of owning a tablet or smartphone is the massive application library of games you have at your finger tips. And for Android, the experience is even deeper, where running your favorite old school video game off an emulator is incredible easy. While running a Wii Remote or Xbox 360 controller has been possible for a while now via bluetooth, dedicated Android gaming controllers are starting to flood the marketplace. Two new competitors are Power A’s MOGA controller, and Nyko’s Playpad Pro. Instead of splitting the reviews, I thought it would be more interesting to put the two head-to-head.
I would never leave the house without my phone. It’s my essence, the key to my soul, and the way I take adorable pictures of my dog and post them on Instagram.
I added a little quote on my lockscreen to remind me to never forget my trusty companion when leaving the house for battle. Don’t worry, S3… I will never forget you.
I can’t tell you how sad I was to find out that Nintendo Power would officially shut down at the end of the year. I grew up on Nintendo Power. I lived and breathed Nintendo Power. I even had a Nintendo Power book bag in preschool, and a hardcover Nintendo Power comic book compilation that I cherished. Thinking about a world without a dedicated Nintendo publication was a reality I wasn’t ready to face. Thankfully, the elite in Nintendo gaming journalists have joined forces to form a plan B.
Nintendo Force is an all-new gaming magazine (both in print and digital), set to pick up right where our dear Nintendo Power left off. The magazine will focus on all things Nintendo, from Wii U, to Virtual Console, to 3DS, to the previous generations of retro goodness, and everything in between. There will be fan mail and fan art. Features and reviews. Interviews and exclusives. Seemingly, Force will continue to offer everything our dear Nintendo Power brought forth during its 24-year run.
Momma Daft Bit just won Christmas, all thanks to this ridiculous present — a three-pack of Yoshi splatter art. The gorgeous eye candy is the work of “The Daily Robot,” a crafty artist who has created quite a few gaming-centric pieces using a similar artistic approach. Previously, I purchased a Mega Man splatter art t-shirt.
These three pieces are now proudly hung on my bedroom wall, and fully complete my gaming paradise. Thanks, Mom!

Hey freeeens. Hope your holiday season has been enjoyable, and stress-free. I feel like the tail-end of 2012 flew by, but there’s nothing I hated more than the droves of testy holiday shoppers that made the last few weeks a trying time, particularly those mini-van moms. God, I fucking loathe mini-van moms.
Anywho, I’ll be spending the next couple of days playing my fair share of Wii U — still working on completing all of the challenge missions in New Super Mario Bros. U since I finished everything else. I really wish I could see how my friends were progressing through the same challenges, since some are ridiculously hard and I’d love to beat everyone’s scores and then create funny memes that would make them feel insecure about their pathetic lack of skills. But I digress.
Happy holidays and enjoy the next few days of the year with some amazing gaming fun!
Nintendo’s newest home console launched less than a week ago in North America, and gamers are going bananas for the Big N’s first HD offering. Stores and online retailers are sold out, and the buzz is growing. After spending several days immersed in all the console has to offer, I wanted to give some impressions to those who haven’t yet purchased the Wii U, or others across the pond that have a few days left before their upcoming launches. Here’s some key touch-points:
