    Nintendo 3DS Sold 11.5 Million Copies Last Year, Thus Winning the Console Wars

    Okay, technically the 3DS is a handheld console that doesn't quite carry the same weight (literally) as larger devices, and both the PS4 and XBox One only had a month and a half while the 3DS got the whole year to slowly rack up numbers. Still, the fact remains: according to Nintendo's recent sales forecast, the 3DS beat all other systems in 2013.

    Sonic Lost World’s Dialogue is Pretty Dark, Apparently

    Ever since Sonic Colors ended the so-called Dark Age of Sonic, the series has returned to a decidedly cartoonish, light-hearted tone. Sonic Lost World, the upcoming Wii U game, looked to continue that trend, but due to certain bits of dialogue it's been given an E10+ rating by the ESRB as opposed to the usual E. I suspect it was written by Shadow the Hedgehog now that he's out of the spotlight.

    Presenting Soriti Horse, the Horse-Racing Solitaire Game From the People Behind Pokémon

    Game Freak is known to most gamers as "the developers that make Pokémon." They had a couple weird platformers back in the day with Pulseman and Drill Dozer, but for numerous years now Pokémon has been their only focus. Now, they've decided it's time to branch out. A game called Soriti Horse is coming. Because what's the next logical step from games about raising monsters to compete against one another? Raising horses to compete against one another, of course. This isn't just your average horse racing game -- you play Solitaire to help your horse advance in the race, because sure, why not?

    Nintendo Fans Start Movement to End Region Locking on 3DS and Wii U

    Nintendo, oh dear Nintendo, how art thou out of step with pretty much every other modern console? Let us count the ways. Oh, here's a telling one --  while the Xbox One and PS4 both eschewed region locking, Nintendo kept the restrictive practice in place on the Wii U. While there are no notable Japanese exclusive Wii U titles yet, there are tons of Japanese-exclusive Wii games that I would have loved to play, like the cat office simulator Sukeban Shachou Rena and gorgeous RPG Earth Seeker. But since those games were never released in the United States, prospective importers either have to mod their console or buy a second system from another region to play them. Now, fans are officially fed up and calling on Nintendo to bring region locking to an end on the Wii U and 3DS.

    11 Franchises Nintendo Should Have Made Free-to-Play Instead of Steel Diver

    If you've been following our gaming news, you know that not too long ago Nintendo announced that they were working on a free-to-play game that would be coming out by the end of March 2014, but we didn't know what game. Well, we received the answer: Steel Diver. If you've never heard of the game, I can't blame you -- it's a submarine sim that nobody bought when it launched with the 3DS. Nintendo is known for having a gigantic backlog of amazing, historic franchises, all of which are more memorable than Steel Diver. Many of them could translate just as well -- if not better -- to the free-to-play format.

    Nintendo Unveils The 3DS XL

    "Your handheld gaming experiences will be more intense and more engrossing than ever before," said Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Amie in a pre-recorded video that was made available Thursday night. He is referring to Nintendo's new handheld called the 3DS XL (known as the 3DS LL in Japan). Announced as a co-sessor to the 3DS, much like the DSi XL before it, it will be the same hardware you know and (possibly) love from the 3DS, but with bigger screens -- 90% bigger screens to be exact.
