It is now (technically) two years since Nintendo began claiming ownership of “Let’s Play” videos on YouTube that featured the company’s content, meaning that any ad revenue that originally went to the YouTuber was diverted into Nintendo’s wallet, something Zach Scott confirmed in May 2013. Since then, Nintendo has been zigzagging back and forth on the issue. Later that year, it was rumored that Nintendo could be backing away from “Let’s Play” money when Reggie Fils-Aime claimed that the decision was made to protect Nintendo’s intellectual property, but it wasn’t until November 2014 that Nintendo finally began to doubt their stance and made their work eligible for Nicovideo’s “Creative Endorsement Program.” It was clear that potential Nintendo Let’s Players were going to jump through a lot of hoops.

We're back with another weekly installment of Gamnesia's Game Clash! Every Monday we pit two video games against each other, and the winner is decided by your votes. This week's battle is between two games that defined a genre, quite literally! Super Metroid built on the success of the first two games in the franchise, perfecting the open world action-platformer style on the SNES. Castlevania: Symphony of the Night implemented the Metroid-style gameplay into the Castlevania universe to create a PlayStation masterpiece. Since then, many games have drawn inspiration from the "Metroidvania" style they established, but which of these two classics is the best? Hit the jump to cast your vote and join in the debate!

One of my favorite video games of all time is EarthBound from the Mother series. This SNES cult classic combines standard RPG elements like turn-based battles and experience points, but takes place in a modern setting based on 1980's American culture. Given my love for the series, I was delighted to see Eden Industries take inspiration from it and create a goofy, nostalgia-fueled modern RPG in the same vein. That game is Citizens of Earth, and publisher Atlus supplied us with a Wii U copy for review. Does Citizens of Earth live up to the high standard set by its predecessor?

One of the most time-honored traditions among gaming websites is to declare a site-wide game of the year. IGN did it, GameSpot did it, and even Polygon did it! Naturally, we here at Gamnesia also wanted to give it a go, but we’ve decided to do things a bit differently. To spice things up a bit, we’ll have five of our talented writers talking about their own personal game of the year, so let’s get cracking!

On Wednesday, Nintendo treated us to their latest Nintendo Direct. This presentation focused on the Spring lineup for both the 3DS and the Wii U. There were quite a few big announcements this time around, however, including the official release date for the New 3DS XL! If you got caught up in all of the excitement, don't fret! Just check out our list of all the announcements after the jump!

Nintendo will soon be releasing Mario Maker, a level editor that allows players to design, play, and share custom Mario levels. If reception to the game is largely positive, Nintendo of America's Bill Trinen has hinted that other Nintendo teams could follow suit and create level editors for other popular Nintendo games. With Nintendo's impressive lineup of characters and franchises, there's plenty of potential to expand the "Maker" genre, but there's one series in particular that I'd love to see Nintendo tackle next. Hit the jump to read on!

It’s Christmas time, and that means overly decorated trees, meeting relatives whose names you can’t remember, and an extraordinary amount of food piled high on a plate. Above all, it means presents tucked away under that tree, in a comically sized sock, or however you pass around Christmas gifts in your family. Of course, no Christmas is complete without something gaming-related (I swear it’s traditional), so with that in mind, let’s find out what some of Gamnesia’s staff members are hoping to find under their Christmas tree this year!
