TTW: Wiim's worst game of 2017 TTW: Wiim's worst game of 2017

G’day TAY. So our current challenge is to write about our worst games of 2017 and I looked at it and though: did I play a bad game this year? 2017 was an amazing year especially at the Nintendo side of things. So what did I play anyway? Since I keep to one game a month this should be easy:

Dream island (Theme week entry) Dream island (Theme week entry)

G’day TAY, so the extended theme week is all about game worlds. Instead of doing the game world I would like to live in. Let me recount a little story that a lot of you have probably experienced in some form or fashion yourself.

Blip: GBD wrote a book?

So I frequent Nintendolife and came across this:

The beauty of ARMS motion Controls. The beauty of ARMS motion Controls.

So we’ve seen ARMS a couple of times and I’m stoked for this game. It’s no Splatoon in my eyes, but still looks like a real Nintendo game. Fun, flashy, colourful and full of character. But something came to me when looking at the latest Nintendo Direct, I think I can deduce how this game came about in it’s entirety.

Help Wanted: Japanese reading ability.

Hello TAY, so the Switch is coming next month and one point of debate has been it’s online service, specifically the “free game a month” that’s promised with that service. The USA and UK sites word this free game in such a way that it seems that a virtual console game can be played for free every month with the game…

You have probably seen this around around the web before, but as TAY’s resident Dutchman I can’t help but plug this here. Love y’all

Small but interesting tidbit: NoE’s site had these buttons greyed (or redded) out for a while and I figured it was a programming error, but now they have full blown coming soon texts over it (it’s the same for the Dutch version of the same site).

This article is a must read for everyone expecting Pokemon Stars, Mario & Luigi or other Nintendo handheld-series on the Switch. Spare yourself the disappointment as I’ll prove why you shouldn’t expect these series either anytime soon, or ever at all.

G’day TAY, another day and another Switch post. I’ve held off on making one since many fellow TAY’ers have said most of what needs to be said. I’m personally much enthused by the Switch presentation and its line-up, but I can’t deny that the line-up is to slim for many gamers. But what if the line-up is slim and the…

That Street Fighter bit was actually a new Street Fighter 2 version

Complete with Evil Ryu and newcomer (to me) Violent Ken this is Ultra Street Figher II: The Final Challangers according to Capcom.

I read the internet in English, so this little image made me laugh a lot. Do I get Ravenpuff points now?

Wiim blip: I'm back

Hi guys, sorry for my month long absence and especially to those following my Let’s Play, Miiverse style series. I was on holiday for a month and Iphone Safari doesn’t let me make comments for some reason. So I wasn’t able to tell you I was gone.

Hello TAY, a bit late again, but Blue’s journey hasn’t stopped. Blue just made it out of Rock Tunnel. We’re nearing the halfway point of the game now, and Blue isn’t slowing down. Enjoy:

Hello Tay, Pokemon fever is ramping up with Pokemon Generations launching it’s first episode today. Haven’t watched yet but they’ll probably focus on Red again. So let’s dive in to Blue’s adventures again to see him recover from the Vermillion ordeal and continue the journey.

Hi all. Work’s been killing rendereing me largely absent from TAY. Some bus drives and morning coffee has given me some oppertunity to continue Blue’s adventures though. It’s Vermillion City time.

Hello TAY, Blue’s adventures in Cerulean city are up for your viewing pleasure. I’ve tried to segment my play-through as best as I can. So I wonder if some of you think that these posts are too short, or too long, (is that to or too?), anyway enjoy part 3. Find part 2 through the tag, I haven’t been able to tag part 1…

Having played through Pokemon Yellow more times than necessary, I figured i’d play Pokemon blue this time, and instead of naming my character Wim and going for my Pokemon Yellow team, I figured I’d name my character Blue so I could get a different team without feeling i’m ditching my faithfull friends. To add to the…

With the NES mini classic just announced, Nintendo’s handling of classic games has become a current topic. Anytime this comes up I see the same questions: why not make all the games? Why do retro consoles do what Nintendon’t?
