Attention!

Our year-long sponsorship with Nicalis is ending today (May 31st, 2016). We would like to thank Nicalis for their support over the last year, keeping GoNintendo ad-free for 365 wonderful days. It's been a pleasure to provide all of you with an ad-free year, but sadly we must now return to a more traditional ad-sponsored layout. That will be happening later tonight.

Surgery simulations, house inspection, power plant maintence…all projects in the works for Second Life that are built around the Wiimote.
