Special: How do you feel about Fire Emblem X Shin Megami Tensei?

Published April 26, 2015 by Amanda B. Greene

When this game was first announced, the “trailer” only showed a cast of characters from both the Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem series in their original artworks and then at end there was something supernatural happening in a modern city.


Then it was awhile (three years?) before having any sort of updates, so many people believed the project was canceled. There was at least one post on GameInformer and other sites saying that “it’s on schedule” but nothing else besides that.

With the last Nintendo Direct, we finally got a real trailer confirming its existence and showing off some cutscenes and gameplay. There are many who are excited while others have concerns, like how it looks more like the Persona series than anything else. How do you feel about it? I’ll tell you some of my thoughts… Read the rest of this entry →


Special: Team Nohr or Team Hoshido? Vote!

Published April 14, 2015 by Amanda B. Greene

The second trailer for Fire Emblem If have sparked a lot of fans to get excited by telling a little more about what the game will be about and how the choices you make will truly change the fate of the war. On Facebook and other sites, I already see the hashtag “#TeamNohr” and “#TeamHoshido” even though we still don’t know a lot about either side. The hype is real and strong for Fire Emblem If.

Help me decide by choosing either Nohr or Hoshido in the poll below. If the game is going to be split into two versions for the rest of the world like it will be in Japan, I’ll be getting both, but I don’t know which path to choose first. You can also comment your choice and say why too, if you want. So, which one is better? 🙂

First Impressions: Pikmin 3

Published April 12, 2015 by Amanda B. Greene


Pikmin 3 is one of the titles I didn’t get a chance to get when it first came out for the Wii U. I was lucky enough to find myself a physical copy at GameStop. It’s a fun puzzle/strategy game that’s more difficult and innovative than its predecessors. There’s currently a spring sale right now on the Nintendo eShop that includes Pikmin 3, so get it quickly! I’ll give you a brief overview of the game below… Read the rest of this entry →

Special: Who are you voting for to possibly be in Smash?

Published April 4, 2015 by Amanda B. Greene


One of the first things to be announced in the last Nintendo Direct was the Smash Ballot. You can go to it by clicking here. You can toss up anyone you want to possibly be the next DLC fighter in Super Smash Bros. All you have to do is tell your gender, the character, where she or he comes from, and finally your reason why before you select “Submit”. I’m not sure if you can vote multiple times, but from what I hear you can. Read the rest of this entry →

The Latest On Fire Emblem If

Published April 2, 2015 by Amanda B. Greene


More on Fire Emblem If was released in yesterday’s Nintendo Direct. We now know that you (your Avatar) will be the main protagonist instead of the second star of the show. You will have to decide where your allegiance resides, Nohr or Hoshido. What makes this difficult and complicated is that you have ties with both kingdoms. Deciding between your family and your loyalty will be tough. You can see it for yourself right here: Read the rest of this entry →

Nintendo Direct Coverage 4.1.15

Published April 2, 2015 by Amanda B. Greene

Yesterday, there was a 48-minute long Nintendo Direct. There was a lot said and shown, even though it is not as much as people wanted or expected. I’ve been reading many criticisms from fans and others alike, but I thought it was mostly good for what it was. The best part of it was definitely the second trailer for Fire Emblem If, followed by the confirmation that Fire Emblem X Shin Megami Tensei is still alive (I was right to have hope!).


Most of the video was focused on, you guessed it, Amiibos. The Wave 4 of SSB characters will be released on May 29. Waves 5 (Dark Pit & Palutena) and 6 (Olimar, Dr. Mario, etc.) will be out in July and September respectively. There will also be Yarn Yoshis (yes, you’re reading this right) that will come in three colors: green, pink, and light blue.

You can find everything here. Thanks to GameInformer as always. 🙂
