Developer: Nintendo EAD Tokyo, Grezzo
Publisher: Nintendo
Genre: Adventure
Players: 1
Console: Nintendo 3DS
Hours Played: ~12 hours

In 2000 Nintendo released the original Majora’s Mask as a follow-up to their hugely successful original foray into the third dimension with Zelda, 1998’s Ocarina of Time.  To this day those two games still stand in the eyes of many gamers as the magna opera of the Legend of Zelda series, and for very good reason.  Majora’s Mask remains the darkest, most emotional and poignant game that Nintendo ever made and stands in stark contrast to the much safer and lighter fare that post-2006 “Grey Logo Nintendo” prefers to release.  Such a rare and sentimental game to the Nintendo gaming community deserves an equally stellar update with modern graphics and mechanics, but does Majora’s Mask 3D (MM3D) pay proper tribute to the classic or did it meet with a terrible fate?

Developer: Game Freak
Publisher: Nintendo
Genre: Role-Playing
Players: 1 (campaign), 2 (additional features)
Console: Nintendo 3DS
Hours Played: 42 hours
Progress: Completed main quest and post-quest activities

Nintendo and developer Game Freak continue the tradition of remaking older Pokémon games immediately following each new generation on the latest Nintendo handheld console.  On the heels of the success of the 6th generation of Pokémon titled X and Y, developer Game Freak re-used the same mechanics and advanced 3D graphics engine to remake Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, now called Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire (ORAS). These remakes are faithful and nostalgic renditions that bring back positive memories, while applying all of the new mechanics introduced in the years since the originals were released. The beautiful and diverse region of Hoenn beckons once more, read on to see if it is worth the journey.

Fantasy Life (3DS) Review

Developer: Level-5
Publisher: Nintendo
Genre: RPG
Players: 1-3 locally (multi-card)
Console: Nintendo 3DS
Hours Played: 50+ hours
Progress: Played 6 of the available 12 lives and reached Level 43

Fantasy Life originally seemed to be a combination of all the other turn based RPGs that I have played in the last number of years.  While this may be true, the game exemplifies itself in a new refreshing way.  This review is the result of approximately 50 hours of game play slogging along in half of the various lives Fantasy Life has to offer.

Smash Bros. 3DS Tournament in 60fps

We had our annual Smash Bros. tournament recently and as ever it was a great show.  We worked out a better way to record the commentary, so it will be a lot more readily audible than our slightly cacophonous coverage from last year.  Will Logan or Chris emerge victorious?  Hahahaha…. no.  See after the jump for a version without commentary (still in 60fps if you watch it at 720p in Chrome) if you have an aversion to our lovely voices and witty repartee.

Nintendo blew the lid off of many of the new features coming for Smash Bros on the Wii U today, but the greatest news of all is that Mewtwo is returning to beat the pants off of Lucario’s cloned butt.

Other highlights include 8-Player Smash, Ridley as an interactive stage boss (proponents of him being playable can finally shut their mouths), the return of custom stages, and Smash Tour that combines many of the funky custom rules matches with board/party game elements.  You can see the full awesome press release after the jump!
