Iwata’s Legacy: MONG’s Favorite Nintendo Memories

Satoru Iwata was more than the President of Nintendo Company, more than a programmer, even more than a gamer. Satoru Iwata was a visionary that helped shape the gaming industry that we see today. If it wasn’t for his forethought, creativity, and dedication, many of us might not have the famous video game characters that we enjoy on a daily basis.

Middle of Nowhere Gaming wanted to commemorate Satoru Iwata by sharing some of our fondest Nintendo memories. Below are some of our memories: Continue reading Iwata’s Legacy: MONG’s Favorite Nintendo Memories

You Know You’re Old When N64 is a Legal Adult

I remember the day I received my very first gaming system, the original Game Boy. I was mesmerized by Super Mario Land, the stellar graphics (at the time), and simply the fact that I could control a character with the touch of my fingers.

Hyrule Warriors Review

IT’S DANGEROUS TO GO ALONE; TAKE THIS…

As a proper 80’s kid, I have had plenty of fun cranking up and down the 8-bit fields of Hyrule in the original The Legend of Zelda on the Nintendo Entertainment System.There’s something about Nintendo-made games that just ooze honed gameplay and polished mechanics. Flash forward to the 90’s: no longer a kid, I’m still having fun playing such Nintendo fare as Wind Waker on my GameCube, but I can also been seen playing a curious series called Dynasty Warriors on my PlayStation 2. I’m still having a hell of a time. Omega Force always made the Warriors games fun, if a bit repetitive. These games, like none other that I was exposed to, set you on a battlefield in an epic army-on-army fight during the fabled Romance of the Three Kingdoms era.

Somehow, a culmination of all the previous works of both Nintendo driven Legend of Zelda games and the Dynasty Warriors games. Dropping the pseudo-historical perspective, this game is set squarely in the fictional Hyrule from The Legend of Zelda series. It seems like quite a gamble to merge a beloved series such as Legend of Zelda and Dynasty Warriors. Did it work? Did Omega Force and Team Ninja manage to create a successor to the Legend of Zelda franchise? Does a coat of Zelda paint improve the Dynasty Warriors formula? Read on to find out.
