We review the Pokémon Go Plus accessory, including how to set it up, pair it, unpair it…we spin some PokeStops and catch some Pokémon!
If you see a Nintendo Entertainment System on store shelves this holiday shopping season, you haven’t entered a time machine. (Unless everyone around you is wearing acid-washed jeans and neon leg warmers. If that’s the case, you may have unknowingly walked through a rift in the space-time continuum.) The most likely scenario is you are setting eyes on the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition, launching in stores on Nov. 11 at a suggested retail price of $79.99. That’s right: The NES is back! But this isn’t the same NES that you fondly remember. This new nostalgia-fueled system is a near-identical, mini replica of Nintendo’s original home console and plugs directly into your high-definition TV using an included HDMI cable. The console comes complete with 30 NES games built in, including beloved classics like Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Donkey Kong, PAC-MAN, and Kirby’s Adventure.
“We wanted to give fans of all ages the opportunity to revisit Nintendo’s original system and rediscover why they fell in love with Nintendo in the first place,” said Pierre-Paul Trepanier, Nintendo of Canada’s General Manager and Senior Director. “The Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition is ideal for anyone who remembers playing the NES, or who wants to pass on those nostalgic memories to the next generation of gamers.”
The system comes packaged with an HDMI cable, an AC adapter, and one NES Classic Controller, which is patterned after the iconic design of the original NES controller. But you really just want to know the full list of 30 games, right? Feast your eyes on the fantastic collection of NES classics included with each and every system:
When the Witch and the Hundred Knight originally released on the PS3, it was an okay action RPG, but it had a few issues holding it back. Now in 2016, the game has received a PS4 port, although the game is still largely the same. And that’s a bit of a missed opportunity, as it could have been better.
It’s been awhile since there’s been a purely fighting game variant of One Piece. Before, fans had RPG and Dynasty Warriors spin-offs to deal with. But now that the show has been in the public consciousness for a while now in the West, it was time to bring together many of the series best characters for a battle royale. The only problem is that perhaps the game could have stayed in the oven for a bit longer, as it can in fact burn up one’s blood. Just not in a good way.

After seeing many features talked about at E3, with the mixed controls of the Wii U GamePad, Motion controls and regular stick controls, does it really work out? Click on through and read more!
Quantum Break is a new game from the developers at Remedy Entertainment. If you have been around gaming for a while, chances are you’ll know their work. They created the Max Payne franchise and developed the first two games in the series. After that they made Alan Wake and its downloadable continuation American Nightmare. Each title this team outputs has been successful. Max Payne was so good that it has spawned multiple games and even a movie. Alan Wake had a slow pickup but has grown into a cult classic amongst fans. This studio doesn’t put out games that often but each one has been a quality addition to the industry and if history is any indicator, Quantum Break should be another big hit.
Hyrule Warriors released on the Wii U back in 2014’s Fall season, and it was a great brawler experience in the Dynasty mold, only with a Zelda wrapper instead of Koei Tecmo’s trademark series. Since the game was a Dynasty Warriors game, many wondered if there would be an eventual Legends edition containing all the DLC and more. About a year later, that answer came in the form of Hyrule Warriors Legends. Only no one was quite ready to hear that it would be a 3DS port. The shift brings some changes that are both welcome and unwelcome, but it’s still a great package, with some caveats.
