Finally getting back into The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D after a brief hiatus brought on by a busy travel schedule and illness. I love the portability of MM3D, but I find I can't enjoy it much on a plane or other distracting settings. » 3/21/15 5:53am 3/21/15 5:53am

I wear glasses and head comfort is a big deal for me since I need my headphones on almost at all times at work. I bought these in the last sale advertised on Kotaku Deals and they delivered. No discomfort with the glasses at all. Go for it! » 3/14/15 8:01pm 3/14/15 8:01pm

I absolutely HATE Ice Climber for NES. Hate it. Hate everything about it, except the music, I guess. I hate the awful play control. I hate the wonky physics. I hate the fact the challenge is derived from the miserable controls. I hate the way Popo jumps. I hate the fact Nintendo ever released this garbage. And… » 3/02/15 8:45am 3/02/15 8:45am

Another Rangers fan here. I genuinely feel sorry for him, or at least as sorry as one can feel for a guy worth about a quarter-billion dollars. I do hope he recovers, plays well again, and has a few more solid seasons (and a World Series with any other team besides Anaheim) to give him a shot at the Hall. » 2/27/15 10:56am 2/27/15 10:56am

Well, for Americans like Ben and many Kotaku readers, that's literally all we knew. C64, Amiga, etc. were far more common in Europe. The only non-console games I played growing up were a handful of DOS titles and a few games on the Atari ST, and some educational / point-and-click games on Apple II and Mac Classic. » 2/25/15 1:40pm 2/25/15 1:40pm

Dawn of the New World is definitely my favorite soundtrack out of the Tales series. It's up there with some of the Zelda titles among my favorite video game music. » 2/24/15 9:30am 2/24/15 9:30am

I had only two NES Zapper light gun games: Hogan's Alley, an arcade-style shooting gallery, and of course Duck Hunt. Everyone remembers the ducks, but did anyone else actually play the clay pigeon shooting mode? » 2/24/15 9:29am 2/24/15 9:29am

DUDE. I have been watching the Kinja Deals page / Twitter every day for about two weeks now since my old Sennheisers fizzled, I missed the last great deal on headphones by just minutes (they sold out quick), FINALLY found this and snagged the ATH-M50x. Thanks Shep!!! » 2/18/15 12:45pm 2/18/15 12:45pm

Agreed on the transfer process; it was kind of a hassle, but at least you only have to do it once. I did the PC-assist version, after reading that the all-wireless method can take several hours. Since I replaced the microSD card with a new 32GB one, I had to take the back off the New 3DS anyway, so there was no… » 2/15/15 12:51pm 2/15/15 12:51pm

A Really Short Review of the New Nintendo 3DS

My new New Nintendo 3DS XL arrived yesterday, and I've been putting it through its paces. I considered writing a detailed review for TAY, but Stephen Totillo's assessment is pretty much spot on, and there's not a whole lot for me to add. It's a nice but hardly essential upgrade, so if you have the means and the… » 2/14/15 1:50pm 2/14/15 1:50pm
