Ok guys, calm down! Lately we’ve seen a super boost in NWC1990 cartridges sales, but we usually talk about Grey ones, that are extremely rare (and expensive), but not as the Gold ones.
Last year we reported about another Nintendo World Championship 1990 grey cartridge found by some Italian collector. We also said the the nice piece of plastic is usually worth around £10k. But here we got a new record, since a long-date collector from North Carolina is selling his one on eBay, and the auction already reached $90k!!
It’s not a secret that a lot of people would like to play a brand new Star Fox game, and it’s also no big news that Platinum Games’ Hideki Kamiya has previously stated that he’d love to work on the franchise. Platinum Games also has quite a lot of experience developing on the Wii U by now, after Wonderful 101 and Bayonetta 2.
Today is the day. Ehm…actually, was the day. We’re talking about the release of both Pokémon Bank and Poké Transporter, the two brand new 3DS apps that allow players to transfer their favourite Pokémon from older versions of the game to X & Y and also store them online.
Just imagine for a second it’s 1996, and Christmas Holidays are around the corner. What would you ask your parents as a gift? A Nintendo 64 of course! And this video shows the most weird way to ask for it to your mother!
Yesterday there was a new Nintendo Direct, and usually that means new games announcements. It was indeed, but Zelda fans were expecting the long-waited not-yet-announced new Legend Of Zelda game for the Wii U.
Being a gamer and a Japan-lover is very common, but let’s talk straight, it’s always been a bit of a pain in the ass, especially if you own a Nintendo console.
And now that we’re basically in a new generation of gaming systems, the Wii U is the only home console keeping the region-lock for its games. We’re not here to state how cool are Xbox One and PlayStation 4 for allowing you play import games, but to try to understand the reasons behind Nintendo region policy on both Wii U and 3DS (that unlike its predecessor is NOT region-free either).
Despite the lack of sales, the Wii U is getting new interesting games, at least in its homeland, Japan.
A new Taiko game, called Taiko no Tatsujin Wii U (or 太鼓の達人WiiUば～じょん！), is available in Japan since last week. This is just the latest installment of a long-running series of music games, using traditional japanese drums as insruments, appeared on almos every game system of the last decade.
If you’re a Pokémon fan and you own the new X & Y, you probably already know about the process to catch shiny Pokémon called “chaining”. If not, it’s very simple, basically Game Freak implemented a new mechanism that increase the rate of shinies appearance rate on successful chain fishing (or encountering in tall grass). Obviously this is a quite long and very boring method, that led YouTube user dekuNukem to build his own shiny catcher machine.
How it works? Well, watch the video and you’ll know.
As you can see from the video, the machine is not catching shiny Pokémon for you, but it’s doing the dirty job of repeatedly fishing in the same spot again and again until the shiny shows up.
By quoting one of the comments to the video, we’d like to say that science gave us this instead of flying cars…and we’re totally fine with that.
