Nintendo’s King of the Ring finally joins Smash Bros.

Lil Mac returns to the Ring in Smash Bros

Well, it’s about damn time.

After first introducing us to the magic that a Nintendo all-star fighting game could be in 1999 (god, typing that makes me feel old), the House of Mario FINALLY brought a FIGHTER to the melee!

The introduction of Little Mac as a playable character during last week’s Nintendo direct was a surprise to me, but only because they’ve ignored the fighter standing in their midst for so long.

Chucklefish, the indie creators of PC-based “Starbound,” makes no reservations about what to expect when playing the beta version of their first-ever game.

Special Report: Quest of Chronology | 25 Years Later the Legend Begins: Skyward Sword

The Real Legend of Zelda

Special Report by Agent Parker

“Rise… The time has come for you to awaken… You are fated to have a hand in a great destiny, and it will soon find you… The time has come for you to awaken…”

With that, a legend is born.

Burdened with near impossible tasks, the events of “Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword” send the original hero of Hyru – wait, Hyrule hasn’t been created yet?
