Nintendo Wii U News and Wii U Game News

Super Smash Bros.

Nintendo today gave Wii U owners a bit of good news, saying they don't have to wait to download Super Smash Bros Wii U. However, the bad news is that they won't be able to play it yet. Super Smash Bros. Wii U pre-loading has gone live today, though Wii U owners still have to wait until Nov. 21 to play it. Effective immediately, Wii U owners can pre-purchase Super Smash Bros Wii U directly from the Nintendo eShop or via a download code purchased from participating retailers.

Wii U GamePad

Lest you forget that Disney's all about franchise tie-ins, a Disney Planes: Fire and Rescue video game has taken flight on Nintendo Wii U and the original Nintendo Wii. The animated film Disney Planes: Fire and Rescue released on Blu-ray Disc yesterday (we'll have a review shortly).

Nintendo Wii U News and Wii U Game News

PS4 vs. Xbox One

Have you ever felt like you're yelling into the wind? You have if you've been involved in any "flame war" related to PS4 vs Xbox One sales or the consoles' technical specs. The yelling is always overblown, and the disagreement is universally pointless. And never has that pointlessness been so evident than in investors' sentiment over Apple Q3 iPad sales. The Cupertino company reported Apple Q3 iPad sales in the 12 million unit range, while consumers bought approximately 39 million iPhones. Those totals led to … [Read more...]

Assassins Creed Unity

One of Ubisoft's most public faces, Jade Raymond, has left the company after 10 years. According to a statement from Ubisoft, Raymond and Ubisoft have "agreed to pursue future opportunities separately." Raymond's departure from Ubisoft comes at an interesting but logical time, as Assassin's Creed Unity is wrapping up production and will ship soon for PS4 and Xbox One. Such departures aren't new to the industry, so hearing that the Assassin's Creed producer leaves Ubisoft doesn't mean the franchise is or will be in … [Read more...]

Skylanders Trap Team Chef Pepperjack

In some extended hands-on time with Skylanders Trap Team last week we played the new Kaos Doom Challenge and several full levels that left the impression that the level designs are much improved. We also left the Toys for Bob studio with a few pieces of Trap Team gold. One of which is the almost complete list of villains you can trap in Skylanders Trap Team. Trapping villains is the new mechanic in this year's Skylanders entry. Using one of the new elementally aligned traps, players can "suck" any of the 40+ bosses … [Read more...]

But toys and franchises aside, what's new in the Disney Infinity 2.0 Toy Box Mode? After all, that's where most gamers will spend the majority of their time, no matter the toy they place on the … [Read more...]
