To celebrate the 35th Anniversary of Super Mario, Nintendo did several special releases this fall to commemorate this incredible classic. September saw the release of the Super Mario 3D All-stars which included an omnibus collection of Mario games that were originally released for either the Nintendo 64, Gamecube and Wii. Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy can be purchased as one package either in a physical or digital version but is only available until 31 March 2021!!

Other note-worthy Mario releases this year, released as of October, are the Super Mario Bros 35, which is designed like a Tetris 99 model and pits other players against each other in a battle royale. This game is free to NSO subscribers and offers a fun new way to ‘Mario’. Additionally, October saw the release of Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit. This Mario Kart version is similar to the Mario Bros 35 in that you are also competing against other players and like 35, offers a fun new remix of a classic game.

How To Clean A Wii U Disk

Posted on December 30, 2016 at 10:41 pm

Nintendo Wii U games come on optical disks, Wii U’s own unique game medium to be exact. But like any disk they can easily pick up dirt and light scratches, hampering their ability to load games.

Fortunately the disks can be cleaned relatively easily with a few house hold items. Here are the simple steps to clean a Wii U disk, from Nintendo.

  1. Dampen a clean, soft, cotton cloth with water.
  2. Use straight strokes and wipe the disc (non-labeled side) from the inside rim to the outside rim.
  3. Using a dry part of the cloth, repeat step 2 to dry the disc.
  4. After all of the water is gone, let the disc sit for at least two minutes to completely dry before inserting it into the Wii U console.
  5. Do not use solvents such as: benzine, window cleaner, paint thinner, anti-static aerosol spray or abrasive cleaners to clean your disc.
  6. Do not use machines designed to clean discs or remove scratches. These types of devices have been known to damage the surface of the disc.
  7. After cleaning, be sure to store your games properly. Storing games in cases other than the ones they came in, or storing them outside their cases, may damage the disc.

Nintendo To The Close The DSi Shop

Posted on April 17, 2016 at 6:54 am

If you have a Nintendo DSi and/or a Nintendo DSi XL device and have been heavily reliant on DSi store, toaccess DSiware downloadable content you will be sad to hear that there store will be closed on 31st March 2017; 8 years is not a bad run considering.

It may be time to ditch the outdated DSi device and go for something that’s current like the Nintendo 3DS. With regards to the DSiware that you do have, and availability on the 3DS. Nintendo released an update on June 2011 which made it possible to access the DSi Shop’s library of DSiWare games through the Nintendo eShop, where you can transfer from the DSi system to the 3DS system whilst you still can; be aware that not all games will be compatible, so you may lose some games you like and have to find alternatives. The points can still be added using DSiware until September 30th 2016, and content can be purchased until March 31, 2017 when the shop will be closed.
