Ricardo Rodriguez

Ricardo Rodriguez may have a near crippling addiction to video games, but at least he can pull himself away long enough to write something about them. His slowly deteriorating corneas won’t stop him from following his passion, and he’s got a semi-adequate haircut to boot! If you can’t find him withering away in front of a game store at five in the morning, he’s either writing for Goomba Stomp or on his blog flipsidegamereviews.com

The Five Most Exciting Announcements From Nintendo Direct

After the latest Nintendo Direct presentation, Nintendo revealed a lot of new information. Here are our five most exciting announcements.

Why You Shouldn’t Be Mad About ‘Super Mario Run’s’ Price

Nintendo released an app that costs ten dollars… No really, they actually asked their consumers to pay money (like, actual money), and they expected to get away with it. Nintendo really thinks they should make a profit off their games? That they should have the right to ask us for our hard earned ten dollars?

Nintendo’s Newsworthy – Even More Switch, Nintendo’s Theme Park, and More

Super Nintendo World will be coming “before the 2020 Olympics” according to Nintendo. These Olympics are being held in Japan, so the release of Super Nintendo World will be sure to attract some tourists.

‘The Last Guardian’ Review – While on Paper…

The Last Guardian is flawed. Deeply flawed. It’s an amazing experience, to be sure, but its mistakes are too prevalent to be ignored. Because, while amazing on paper, commanding a gigantic bird-cat-dog through a mysterious, ancient valley only works some of the time.

Nintendo’s Newsworthy: More on Switch, ‘Pokemon’, and… Jimmy Fallon?

This completely confirms the rumors revolving around Pokkén Tournament, stating that Scizor, Darkrai, and Empoleon would be coming to the game, though most of the rumors did not predict the addition of Crogunk.
