Hangin' with Mr. Koopman - NintenDaan Wednesday

It's that time of the week, my friends! We've been missing Daan for the last couple Wednesdays due to E3 and his vacation, but now he's back and ready to go! He'll have you covered from now until around 10 PM ET. That's when I hop back in the saddle and pick up where he leaves off.

Hope you all are having a wonderful week so far. I'll see you later tonight!

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time coming to NA Wii U VC tomorrow

Save Hyrule and the Triforce from the evil Ganondorf.

The Legend of Zelda™: Ocarina of Time™ – one of the most critically acclaimed games ever made –returns on the Nintendo eShop for Wii U™. Set off on a legendary journey to stop Ganondorf, who has plunged Hyrule into darkness. Travel through time as child and adult Link™ and experience Hyrule in peace and war to save the world and protect the Triforce.

Your quest takes you through dense forests and across wind-whipped deserts. Swim raging rivers, climb treacherous mountains, dash on horseback across rolling hills, and delve into dungeons full of creatures that fight to the finish to put an end to your adventures. As Link, you'll also travel through time to solve puzzles, save friends, and right Ganondorf's wrongs with the help from your trusty Ocarina of Time and the mysterious youth, Sheik. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is one of Nintendo's most epic challenges ever and one of its most touching stories, and is an absolute must-play for Nintendo fans.

Capcom looks back on Mega Man robot masters: Ice Man

Number: DLN-005

Weapon: Ice Slasher

Weakness: Elec Beam

A robot created for conducting research at the South Pole. Dodge his Ice Slasher with well-timed jumps at just the right height.

In the real world, we send helpful robots into all kinds of extreme situations that humans can't physically withstand. How nice would it be to have someone like Ice Man by our side, investigating super-cold environments while we sit back and avoid any alien parasites that may or may not be lurking in the Antarctic?

Neon Battle due out on Wii U eShop next week

Maneuver your way around the circular battlefield to victory in Neon Battle! Smash your opponent out of the way and yell obscenities at them without the threat of assault charges! Well, that’s assuming you keep it in the game, with four different game modes to choose from and a selection of powerups, it’s arguably more fun than smashing someone in real life, and definitely more fun than attending court hearings! Play solo or against a friend in a race to collect points by bouncing the ball and keeping it from going out of bounds! And for when your friends are busy/non-existent, you can play against the CPU!
