Long time fan of Nintendo and games in general, I always lean on the quirkier and unique sides of things in particular. It all started when I was lucky enough to get a Gameboy Color and Pokemon Yellow for my tenth birthday and it’s been going strong ever since. I’ve always had a need to get my voice heard and share anything I find interesting with the world.

NintyBeats – Nintendo (Literally) Rocks

Anyone who knows me well knows that I am quite the rock fanatic, and a particular metalhead, so this time on NintyBeats I’m here to share a sampling of times Nintendo threw down and pulled out the guitars to shred with the best of them. Get ready to jump down into the mosh pit and headbang to a selection of their finest rock or rock inspired tracks from over the years.

REVIEW – No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle

The original No More Heroes set itself a well-earned spot in the cult classic pantheon for its grindhouse aesthetic and harsh, often self-deprecating criticism of hardcore violence. A lot of this likely flew over the general audience’s heads as they saw the crass Travis Touchdown swearing and cutting down droves of faceless goons in a ridiculously over the top fashion. So a second go was in order, despite the previous game’s generally conclusive ending, which also now ironically teased that a sequel won’t ever happen. The United Assassin’s Association has now fully become the organisation that was only suggested in the first game, a ruthless entertainment industry leader in recreational killing for the masses. Travis now finds himself bound to a story he doesn’t want to be a part of in order to seek vengeance for the death of his best friend, let the bloodshed begin anew.

REVIEW – No More Heroes

Over the years, Nintendo has built itself a reputation for catering to the all-ages market, with even their more mature titles never really pushing anything beyond the teen demographic. This extends even into third party efforts, with many exclusives still being aimed at younger or general audiences. So to have a game come along where the protagonist’s first line of non-narration dialogue is a hard expletive right after he’s decapitated a pair of guards, blood exaggeratingly spraying dozens of feet into the air is both astonishing and also very exciting. Welcome to the brutal world of No More Heroes, where assassins fight each other to the death to attain the glorious ranking title of number one.

Animal Crossing on Switch: What We Want To See Next

The latest addition to the much-loved Animal Crossing franchise is almost upon us. Later this year, the series will arrive on Nintendo Switch. Its humble beginnings on Nintendo 64 / GameCube encouraged players to build a home to call their own, and befriend the adorable animal villagers found within the game. Players could even invite their real-life friends into their towns locally with the use of a GameCube memory card. Since then, the success of the Animal Crossing series has steadily grown, building on top of its core foundations, and enriching the games with new and engaging features.

On Nintendo DS, players from around the world could connect together to visit each other’s towns for the first time, using Nintendo’s online WiFi Connection. It was also the first title in the series that could be played on a handheld device. On the Wii, players could explore a bustling city full of many different businesses, brimming with exclusive items. With the Wii Speak peripheral, it allowed online friends to speak to one another through voice chat.

With the Nintendo 3DS, the series returned to handheld and put you in charge of an enriched world, where you became the mayor of the town, its fate resting in your hands. The game introduced Public Works Projects, greater customisation and reintroduced classic additions from previous titles, making it the most fulfilling Animal Crossing experience to date.

With more information on the upcoming Nintendo Switch title presumably just around the corner at E3 2019, what better time than now to speculate about what we could see in the new game?

NintyBuzz Turns One!

Well, that went quickly. One year ago I opened up the doors to NintyBuzz hoping to bring the internet Nintendo news and non-biased reviews. Indeed I tend to not cover news that much anymore, but I’d like to think we are still mostly unbiased.

A year seems like a long time, heck I started and finished a year long course at college since I started NintyBuzz, but it sure went quickly. I would just let to thank everyone who comes on a regular basis (no mater how slim the numbers are) for visiting, and I hope you enjoy the next year of gaming and beyond.

I may have a little surprise in a week or so to to commemorate the occasion, but more about that later. But for now, just keep on buzzing!

I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!

Scheduling

So, the reboot has been a bit slow but we are gradually getting there. I have decided to give myself a sort of schedule to try and go so that we look somewhat active!

First of all, I want to try and publish at least one new review every month, but trying to push for two or, if I’m devious, three! I plan for NintyTalk to air every fortnight or, if news has been very slow, every month. Me and Chris should hopefully have a new episode up sometime next week, we have lots to talk about. I also plan to bring back NintyBeats very soon, though at the moment I am also thinking that this should be a fortnightly feature. Finally, there will also be several one off articles being published soon. As soon as Sam has escaped the terror that is University, he will start posting several one-offs. He told me he has some good ideas but refused to divulge into much detail!

Also, remember that E3 is slowly rearing its face, which means we will have even more topics to talk about, and maybe even some more competitions/giveaways if I have a stable income by then!

Hopefully, this should give you delightful readers an idea of what to expect over the following several weeks. Bear in mind I do still have College and deadlines for assignments, but come E3, I will be finished with College for good so I’ll have even more time for NintyBuzz.

Before I go, if you are interested with helping out with writing articles and reviews, visit the Work for Us page and pop us an email!

Happy Buzzing!
