The Xbox One has been officially unveiled and to Microsoft’s dismay, it seems feedback on the console is centered on confusion. Much of the press leading up to Microsoft’s next-generation reveal was surrounding the much talked about always-online feature, and if the system would play used games. After the console has now been officially announced, these two issues should have been clarified, confirmed, or debunked. Explaining to the fans that have been following these rumours if they were indeed true, or unmerited. Fast forward 24 hours and Xbox fans are still left wondering. Will they have to pay fees to play used-games? Will gamers have to connect their consoles online regularly? Read the rest of this entry
Everyone has a favorite game, heck even a favorite series but that doesn’t mean you’ll always replay that game. In fact few games ever get the replay treatment, only the best of the best. For starters, the replay treatment is different than replaying a game for the rest of the achievements or one thing you missed, NO MATTER HOW FAR you missed that one specific quest/item/whatever.
No, replaying a game yearly is only saved for the true wonders of a gamers heart. For me, considering I don’t buy that many new games per year, I have a very large list for replay games. For starters, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Mario World, Super Mario Bros 3, and Goof Troop are all things I replay any chance I go to my grandmother’s house with the SNES plugged in. Paper Mario 64 is a classic I can never not play, along with Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga for the GBA. Fighting games, in my personal opinion, do not count although I have logged in some many hours at Marvel vs Capcom 2 it has basically turned into a daily fixture. Last, but not least, in my abundance of yearly replays is that of Ocarina of Time; and yes the N64, GCN, Master Quest and 3D version all count. The same goes for Sonic 3 & Knuckles, be it on my SEGA Genesis or Gamecube I have to replay the game. Funny, I feel more like I’m naming a greatest games all-time list rather than a yearly replay list, but that is what comes with these games; they are just the fantastic in so many ways.
Luigi, the most famous second-hand guy out there. We all know of him….as Mario’s brother but this guy’s popularity is more than some ‘main’ characters of other video game series! Since Nintendo has declared the year of 2013 to be the “Year of Luigi” and the fact that Luigi will be starring in many games this year ranging from Luigi Mansion 2 (release tomorrow), a new Mario & Luigi RPG game, and his own DLC pack for New Super Mario Bros U. (Nintendo Direct at it again!), I thought I might as well dip my hand into the hat. I think it is time for Luigi to get his own real game, outside his usual forte of higher-jump Mario in the Super Mario Bros series. Yes, yes we all know Luigi did have the Mario is Missing games and his most famous solo-adventure Luigi’s Mansion but I’m taking about a real Luigi adventure.

In a world full of fantastic games spanning from many systems, there are always games that are just complete disasters. These disasters aren’t always properly labeled or in fact sometimes games you anticipate. Most of the time though, they are games you have never heard of and don’t even know how they stumbled upon your collection.
Classic disasters like Superman 64, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde are games you probably aren’t going to buy. The only way you would EVER get them is if: A) They were free or B) They were gift and you were a young kid who didn’t know the meaning of receipt and returning was.
We all already know about the PS4 announcements, heck we practically were at the conference. From the new DualShock 4, to the “Share” feature, to the specs, to the “Eye”, to the no backwards compatibility, to the everything else! The Playstation 4 has intrigued many gamers even with how little we know; heck we don’t even know what the console looks like!
But, as we all are coming around to the next generation of gaming let’s not forget Nintendo already has their foot out the door with their system out and running, the Wii U. It is practically a fact that many people do not own a Wii U (evidenced by the 55,000 sales over the past month) but does this mean anything right now? No, is the answer, in case you were wondering, to the previous question. The Wii U, while out for about three months now, has massive potential as do all the other new consoles, but you know what makes the Wii U different? Games…well for now.
February 14th, the day everyone cuddles up with their loved one after a hard day of eating chocolate, smelling roses and enjoying a romantic dining experience. It is the day those who hold someone dear celebrate their love; from something as tiny as a love letter, to something extravagant as a Wii U console. It is a beautiful day and it makes you appreciate those you care about.
Though not everyone has the luck of having somebody to love.
Some may actually find that this day of love brings them down in the dumps, the ‘Love-Dumps’. Well, never fear, those ‘Love-Dumps’ are about to disappear and you are going on a one-way trip, to Love City. Population: you.
We here at analogaddiction have gathered the best scientific minds (Myself) and experts within the romance-sciences (I searched on Google) together and compiled the Top 5 Valentine’s Day Games (For singles). So if you happen to be without a loved one this year – nobody there to give you a backrub or tell you are beautiful you are – then get out that DualShock, NunChuck or that Kinect system and as the great Whitney Housten said, “I wanna Kinect, with somebody”.
Well, everyone and their ancestors has heard about today’s exciting Nintendo Direct announcement. Heck, I can see Wii U sales going up (not immediately) but around the time summer and E3 hits. I love Nintendo, always have, in fact yesterday with my friends, Chris and Phil and I literally had a Nintendo all-day festival starting from Gamecube, to N64, to Wii, to end the day with the SNES. It doesn’t make me a bigger Nintendo fan that I own all the systems, who cares everyone has played the games am I right or am I right?
Hearing today’s announcement excited me for many reasons. First, I get to play Wind Waker for the third time when I buy the remake (note: not remaster). Two, I can still put off getting my Wii U since I just spent a lot of money getting a nice tablet. Third, details on new Yoshi game and the announcements of Mario, Mario Kart, and Smash Bros at E3 excite me beyond belief. And lastly, Xenoblade “2″ (I will dub it that but we all know it will be Xeno-something).
