About Vooks

vooks15Vooks (pronounced like books with a V) is a labour of love for all of us here.

A love of all things Nintendo and gaming. All of the team here are dedicated to bringing you the best Nintendo news locally, here in Australia and from around the world. Our review team has hundreds of reviews between them and are all committed to bringing you, the wonderful site visitor, the best of advice on what’s worth spending your money on and what’s not.

The Vooks team is comprised entirely of volunteers. None of us are in the gaming industry, we just love games. Since 2000, we’ve been bringing you the news and reviews in our spare time. So whether you are a long time Nintendo fan, a newcomer to Nintendo, or a lapsed gamer who has picked up a Stylus or a Wii Remote and wants to get back into gaming, we’re here to report.

While many other Nintendo sites have come and gone in Australia we’ve been following Nintendo through the highs and the lows and we’ll be here for a while yet.

So if you visit because of news, reviews, our active community, or listen to our Podcast we hope you enjoy your stay.

Support the site

This has been asked for by you guys for a long time, so we finally did and not only do you get a nice shirt out of it you get to support the site. Each shirt will help out run the site, the bulk of the cost goes to Spreadshirt who we have the store through but we’ve put a small commission on the top ($2-$3) to keep the shirts cheap and so you can support us.

Why not buy one now?


Secondly the Patreon

Patreon is like an ongoing Kickstarter, we’re not asking for a sum of money and making a product. Vooks is a product, its cost is on going and so a Patreon is perfect for this and we want to see if anyone wants to help us out. You don’t have to, we’re never going to charge anyone to read our site and we don’t want people to give if they can’t support themselves first! The ongoing money this Patreon will go back directly into the bills and to ease my poor wallet.

Click here to support us, we might even defeat the empire.
