Mario Golf: World Tour and Kirby: Triple Deluxe Roll In To Canada

Nintendo CanadaWhen you see two round objects rolling your way, don’t be alarmed: They’re probably just a harmless golf ball and a familiar pink puffball. On May 2, the Mario Golf: World Tour and Kirby: Triple Deluxe games are launching in stores and in the Nintendo eShop on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. It’s a double dose of Nintendo! Both games are the next installments in their respective franchises and the first of their series on Nintendo 3DS. Both games also feature some of the most loved and iconic characters in the Nintendo universe. And, best of all, both games are ridiculously fun – which I’m sure I’ll discover just as soon as I have time to play them both. My day job has kept me incredibly busy the last couple of weeks, with very little time for gaming of any kind. Read the rest of this entry »

Review: Donkey Kong Returns With Tropical Freeze

Nintendo CanadaReleasing today, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze returns fans to a world full of familiar challenges and rewards with new enemies and new abilities – and a reminder that in DK’s world, timing truly is everything. In fact, some levels in this latest iteration of the franchise bring a stark truism to the adage “he who hesitates is lost” because in some levels there really isn’t any time to look around. It took me more than a few lives to get through some levels, as the difficulty at times seemed to ramp up rather quickly – sometimes frustratingly so – but it’s also easy to rack up a healthy store of “back-up lives” in this game, so it’s all good.
