NintyBeats returns for its first feature of 2020. As its February, we are celebrating the theme of romance. But there will be no need to check into a Love Hotel! For this feature, I have chosen four themes that feature some kind of romantic connection, but which ones come up smelling of roses?(more…)
Unlike many other Nintendo fans around me, the popular turn-based strategy series, Fire Emblem, has been one that has escaped me over the years. Due to my inexperience with the franchise, I was hesitant to take on this review. But after watching some trailers and seeing the excitement build within the Nintendo community, I was curious to see what Three Houses had to offer. What follows is a review of Fire Emblem: Three Houses played on classic difficulty.(more…)
Before the end of the Wii U era, it was rare for a Nintendo game to feature vocals in its prominent songs for its flagship games. The release of Fire Emblem: Three Houses in July will mark the fourth year in a row a landmark title will include singing in its main theme, of all places.
Vocal Nintendo songs have existed since the Nintendo GameCube. Captain Falcon had a theme song in F-Zero GX. The credits theme for Xenoblade Chronicles, “Beyond the Sky,” is an underrated gem of emotion, and one could argue that Zelda from Skyward Sword, K.K. Slider and the Squid Sisters had been singing all along before 2016.
That was the year when vocals finally started to appear for the masses, however. With the growing popularity of Fire Emblem, the Nintendo 3DS Fire Emblem Fates titles brought with them “Lost in Thoughts All Alone,” the main theme sung in both English and Japanese for those highly successful titles.(more…)
I’ve been playing Nintendo games since I was 3 years old, and my earliest memory is watching my dad play Super Mario 64.
Since then, I’ve become as big of a fan as you might imagine: YouTube video projects, fan fiction, owning just about every amiibo — you name it!
I’m also a stalwart defender of underappreciated games like Skyward Sword, Other M, Super Paper Mario, Star Fox Adventures, Star Fox Zero and more. I love to see passion in a gaming product, and my desire on this site is to share a similar passion in what I write.
Unfortunately I could not post live updates as I was hosting an E3 viewing party as part of BourneNintendo as well as manning the E3 Bingo Board. I’ve decided that, instead of posting all the updates in multiple posts, I’ve decided to just talk about everything, along with my reactions, in this one post. Not only will it save us bandwidth (not a total issue), but you don’t have to keep loading new posts! Win win!
Anywho, I swear I always start off with the same statement, or similar, either way, that was definitely an interesting Nintendo Direct. I was pleasantly surprised by a lot of announcements as well as impressed, though there have definitely been better Nintendo Directs in the past. Heck, the Nintendo Direct before this one felt more like an E3 Direct!
Without further ado, if you missed out on the direct, you can find our recap after the break!
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!
