Some games are better suited to portable systems, and the 3DS has a few features completely unique to it.</p><p>Maybe my favorite of these is called StreetPass. When your 3DS is off, in your pocket or backpack or wherever, it periodically sends out a ping using its wireless radio. If there is another 3DS in range, it will receive that ping, the two systems will exchange data, and a little green light on the top of the 3DS will light up to tell me I’ve StreetPassed with someone.</p> Thu, 08 May 2014 17:30:00 +0000 Samuel McConnell 34149 at http://kmuw.org 'StreetPass' Boosts Social Gaming Your Move: New 'Zelda' Removes The Tedium, Keeps The Fun http://kmuw.org/post/your-move-new-zelda-removes-tedium-keeps-fun <p></p><p></p><p>Nintendo’s <em>The Legend of Zelda</em> series is practically mythical at this point.

Perhaps it is for this reason that both the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4, which have been out for less than a month, have both already outsold the Wii U. Now a game has come out, though, that makes the Wii U worth picking up.</p> Thu, 05 Dec 2013 18:30:00 +0000 Samuel McConnell 27205 at http://kmuw.org Your Move: Mario's Back, And He's Beautiful Your Move: 'Pokémon' Universe Continues To Grow http://kmuw.org/post/your-move-pok-mon-universe-continues-grow <p></p><p>Nintendo&rsquo;s Pokémon series is the second-best selling game franchise in history.

It gave us classics like Super Mario World, but it also emboldened marketers to dream up spin-offs. In these crossovers, the best parts about pop stars, TV shows, and movies were often abandoned. The result was a string of glitchy maps and questionable plot.</p> Tue, 26 Mar 2013 12:00:00 +0000 Andrew Bales 14653 at http://kmuw.org Into It: The Worst Of Super Nintendo Your Move: Wii U http://kmuw.org/post/your-move-wii-u <p></p><p>Like tens of millions of other people, I bought the Nintendo Wii back in 2006.
