Nintendo finally got the memo I've been sending them since Mario Tennis: Power Tour in 2005.
The monkey's coming 'round again for some love. Make sure to give him a hug this time.
Would you want to play Dark Souls on a long flight? Maybe not.
Some more exclusives would be a good place to start.
Sony continued to win behind the scenes while Nintendo grabbed headlines, but what will the company do in 2018?
Nintendo's going into the new year with its Fire Flowers blazing, but there's still a lot it can do to keep up that momentum.
Phantom Thieves weren't the only things that stole my heart this year.
Japan owns a huge chunk of Kat's favorite games of 2017.
A good year for humanist games.

Ah, that bittersweet feeling.
The Miiverse is dead and gone, but not in our hearts.
