The Evolution of GenGAME: A Peak Into the Future

Back in October of last year I made a post indicating that GenGAME was closing its doors and it remained on the front page of the website for several months. After some lengthy discussion with some of the GenGAME team members, along with some detailed planning of some future projects I am working on, we decided to give GenGAME a reboot. We never fully relaunched the website, and we never formally announced any of our future plans. Instead, we just started to trickle out a few articles here and there, with the idea of keeping the front page active for the eventual full-blown relaunch of the website.

GenTEN: The Best Nintendo Wii U Games

It has been over two years since the launch of the Nintendo Wii U and it has been quite a bumpy ride for the Big N. It took quite awhile for the console to gain any traction, but after a very slow start, a slew of decent games started to pile in. I myself picked up a Nintendo Wii U at launch and have played the majority of the hit titles on the system, some more than others. Here is my list of what I think are the 10 best Nintendo Wii U titles to date.

GenGAME Says: Will You Be Buying a ‘New Nintendo 3DS’

We are just a few weeks away from the release of the New Nintendo 3DS, set for release on February 13th. While we know a lot about the upgrades features, at the moment there is not a single game that is set to release exclusively for the upgraded console. All currently announced 3DS titles will still be playable on the current Nintendo 3DS and 3DS XL. This begs the question, is it worth the purchase? This week the GenGAME staff answers the question as to whether or not each of us will make the splash and purchase the New Nintendo 3DS.
