Iwata: Wi-Fi to get expanded this year

Nintendo head honcho Satoru Iwata recently conducted an interview where his comments regarding Nintendo's Wi-Fi Connect were pretty darn interesting.

Train Training -- for real this time

The last train-related training software we saw was marred by a bunch of weird dating-sim nonsense. It was only a matter of time until another, more purely train-oriented educational game came along. A matter of two days, to be more precise. The latest train-training game from Taito couldn't be less...

Spectrobes webisodes to back up DS release

We know you're in pain. There are so few Nintendo games dedicated to collecting and training monsters that you're all in severe withdrawals. After all, it's been at least ... oh ... six seconds or so since another such title was announced! Okay, so maybe we're being a tad sarcastic, but these days, ...

Common sense training on the DS

Forget training your brain -- what most people need is to learn not to be a complete moron in day to day life. But they don't mean common sense in the "don't set yourself on fire because it's funny" way (which is a shame), but common sense in the "general knowledge" way. Famitsu has several new scre...

Densha de GO! Hilarious train riding "game"

While the Japanese may not like Loco Roco, they love the Densha de GO! series. And who wouldn't?
