Pokemon GO is a no-go at GDC 2016

Pokemon fans, and gamers in general, waiting to see a glimpse of a Pokemon adventure carried out in the real world will have to wait a bit longer.

Nintendo NX tip: beefy handheld with wireless TV connection

Given how Nintendo's performance in the hardware area has been rather disappointing these past years, it is understandable that a lot of attention, which includes speculation and anonymous insider tips, is being lavished on the promised Nintendo NX.

According to the supposedly reliable source, the Nintendo NX will veritably be a handheld device with the processing might of an Xbox One and connects to at TV wirelessly with an HDMI dongle.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past gets reimagined in Unreal

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past gets reimagined in Unreal

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past is probably my favorite game in the Zelda series.

And someone decided that this great game needed some updated graphics.

Saturdays are for cartoons. Somewhere, that is a rule that's written down, and must be obeyed. Sadly, as adults, few of us wake up in the morning to watch our favorite animated shows.

Nintendo nixes its ‘Quality of Life’ sleep tracker project

Think back to the fall of 2014, and you might remember mention of a sleep tracker Nintendo had in the works. The company had announced plans to develop a device that would track someone’s sleep data and how fatigued they are, something that would perhaps rest on a bed stand rather being on your wrist.
