What Games Could Appear on a GameCube Classic Edition? What Games Could Appear on a GameCube Classic Edition?

Nintendo’s Classic Edition systems have done pretty well for them, forcing Sega to step up their game and finally cut ties with AtGames and now inspiring Sony to make a Classic Edition of their original Playstation system. But after taking a look at the rest of Nintendo’s 20th-Century systems, it’s time to take a step…

What Games Could Appear on a Game Boy Classic Edition? What Games Could Appear on a Game Boy Classic Edition?

With the huge success of the NES Classic Edition and the SNES Classic Edition, people rightly assume that Nintendo will continue this line with the Nintendo 64 Classic Edition (which I did a theoretical games list for here), though as others have noted, it presents its own problems.

Possible Echo Fighters for Every Smash Ultimate Character Possible Echo Fighters for Every Smash Ultimate Character

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is shaping up to be the best in the series and arguably one of the best games ever made. One of the reasons for that is bringing a lot of fan favorite characters to the roster. In previous games, there has been consternation over “clones,” or characters who share movesets with another…

Nothing Lasts Forever, Especially My Thunder Sword: Impermanence in Breath of the Wild Nothing Lasts Forever, Especially My Thunder Sword: Impermanence in Breath of the Wild

Upon riding a fortuitously placed updraft into the evening sky and launching a final light arrow directly into Calamity Ganon’s massive, pinkly glowing eyeball - a privilege extended only to those players lucky and talented enough to make it through a perilously possessed Hyrule Castle, snipe an enraged lesser-version…

My Time With Breath of the Wild My Time With Breath of the Wild

As the cartridge clicked into place, and the icon appeared on the screen, I pressed play. Once again, the screen faded to black, and once more, I heard the words, “Open your eyes.” I awoke within the same dark cave I’d seen so many times before, actually performing the actions I’d seen so many other people do: Claim…

More Blasts From the Past (and Lists From the Past) More Blasts From the Past (and Lists From the Past)

If you’ve been following my posts for the last few days, you know that I’m drawing inspiration from some old journals I found when I was much (MUCH) younger- stuff like a list of which bad guys were best, or what my Pokémon team looked like. There are some cheat codes, and a ton of stuff without any context at all,…

What These Lists Say About The Gaming Community's Values What These Lists Say About The Gaming Community's Values

Recently many gaming sites and fans have released their Top Games of the Year lists. Most people use them as a conversation starter, goading others with, “Yeah, I put [game A] ahead of [game B]. Hear me out.” And, while putting a lot of weight on any one entity’s list invites strained debate and a potentially…

Breath of the Wild is Your Readers' Choice Game of the Year for 2017 Breath of the Wild is Your Readers' Choice Game of the Year for 2017

The votes have been cast, and the latest Legend of Zelda adventure has been crowned king by Kotaku and TAY readers. It stands as the first Nintendo game to claim such an honor in The Speakys seven-year history. Other titles such as Persona 5, NieR Automata, and Horizon: Zero Dawn also battled to top the list.

Looking Back at 1987: A Legendary Year in Gaming Looking Back at 1987: A Legendary Year in Gaming

It’s been a great year for gaming. In the past few months, great games were released one after another with games like Horizon Zero Dawn, Nier: Automata, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Resident Evil 7: Biohazard (or Biohazard 7: Resident Evil in Japan) garnering both critical and commercial success – and…

Thoughts After Finishing A Link To The Past Thoughts After Finishing A Link To The Past

It only took me fifteen years, but I finally finished The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. See my previous post for a little bit of my history with the game. It feels good to finally close the book on this classic. Having previously played most of the other games in the Zelda series, I can definitely see how much…

Finishing A Link To The Past After Fifteen Long Years Finishing A Link To The Past After Fifteen Long Years

Confession: I have never finished The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past. My first experience with the game was back when it was re-released on the GBA in 2002. I was in middle school at the time and I still remember pulling the Master Sword from its pedestal and using it to defeat Agahnim in the Light World. I…

Games That I Want To Play, But Haven't Games That I Want To Play, But Haven't

I wonder what gaming will be like for children 50 years from now. Traditional console gaming has really only been around for a bit over 30 years, and there are already a ton of video games from the 15 or so where I was a twinkle in my parents’ eyes or an infant. But for children in the year 2067, will they even bother…

ThePickyGamer's Video Game Poster Collection [UPDATE] ThePickyGamer's Video Game Poster Collection [UPDATE]

A week or so ago, I showed you all my video game t-shirt collection. The natural next step would be to show my poster collection! That’s why I made this article. The end.

ThePickyGamer Reviews The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild- The Master Trials- Part 1, Misko's Treasures ThePickyGamer Reviews The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild- The Master Trials- Part 1, Misko's Treasures

This was the usual structure for the days leading up to Zelda’s first DLC pack: I would play Fire Emblem Fates: Revelations on the go, Horizon: Zero Dawn when I was at home, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild whenever I was listening to a podcast, since at that point I was just collecting korok seeds. Then,…

My Humble Video Game T-Shirt Collection My Humble Video Game T-Shirt Collection

So I went shopping a week ago, mainly for boring fancy shirts, and tried to stuff them in my drawer. But it had reached full capacity. Opening and closing it had become a battle of will. And thus I decided to retire some of my older shirts. I was surprised to find how many shirts there were at the bottom of the drawer…

Hot Take: Nintendo Store NYC Hot Take: Nintendo Store NYC

This past weekend I took my first trip to NYC and naturally, instead of visiting the Kotaku offices to visit my favorite gaming news editors, I made my way to the Nintendo NYC store for a bit of a shopping spree. The experience is something I’d been looking forward to for a while. I was not disappointed.

Here are Some of my Favorite Screenshots from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Here are Some of my Favorite Screenshots from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

So, as you can tell from my previous article, I love The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. And one of my favorite things about the game is how gosh darn beautiful the game’s world is. It might not be as technically impressive as, say Horizon: Zero Dawn, but Nintendo has a good track record of creating timeless art…
