Nintendo’s NX is the next big thing on their table and is billed to be a brand-new concept that will “transform gamer’s lives” when it launches. Sounds a little similar to what was being said when the Nintendo Revolution had yet to become the Wii, so I’m more than a little skeptical about their intentions. Still, it’s going to be their next dedicated gaming platform and, if they’ve learned anything in the last couple hardware cycles, will be a powerful machine capable of running the most modern engines. To demonstrate what that could mean for Nintendo’s most famous property, one crafty YouTuber put together this absolutely stunning video.  (more…)

Ever since Nintendo’s Satoru Iwata has been tasked with proving to investors that the Wii U isn’t doomed to be a colossal failure, there has been much change under the Big N’s roof. A new Club Nintendo, a partnership with Japanese giant DeNA for mobile games, and even allowing a couple of their characters into Activision’s hit Skylanders series.

This Week in Video Games 10-06

I know this column is titled “This Week in Video Games,” even though it’ll be on a bi-weekly basis. Unfortunately, “These Past Two Weeks in Video Games” doesn’t have much of a ring to it; you’ll just have to deal with it until we come up with something better. This week, we take a look at the launch of GTA Online (is it running yet?), the Battlefield 4 beta launches, and Valve unveils its new hardware, and maybe even confirms a certain game we’ve all been waiting for?

Check out all of your gaming news AFTER THE JUMP!
