Last Super Smash Bros. Direct Recap!

Published December 16, 2015 by Amanda B. Greene

Hey guys, I know it’s been a long time since I’ve last blogged on here and I apologize for that. Anyways, yesterday Nintendo had their final Direct for Super Smash Bros. and it was shocking and awesome! New fighters, Corrin and Bayonetta, were announced and are to be released sometime in February. There was also more information on Cloud and his stage and he is available right now. And who could forget about new Mii Fighter costumes?

I’m a huge fan of Fire Emblem and I also enjoyed Bayonetta 1 and 2, so I’m more than excited to eventually play them both. What did you think of the video? You can listen to the GameXplain discussion of it here. To check out the artwork for the new characters from the official Super Smash Bros. website… Read the rest of this entry →

First Impressions: The Wonderful 101

Published September 23, 2015 by Amanda B. Greene

I’m sorry that this took so long to post, I haven’t been able to get into The Wonderful 101. My first impressions are not so good. I played for a few hours or so, but stopped for a while. I didn’t get very far in the story – mainly due to my frustration with the controls. The humor is okay though, the jokes got a few laughs out of me here and there. I’ll eventually dive into it more, but it’s just not appealing to me. It only makes me want to play Bayonetta (also made by Platinum Games) more with its perfect polish.

Not everything is bad about it… like I make it seem. It’s just has a steep learning curve with the controls and the camera angles/lack of zoom don’t help at all. I like the funny premise of typical, old superheroes, reminding me of The Incredibles in a way. To read more… Read the rest of this entry →

Special: My Miiverse Mission

Super-Smash-Bros.-Miiverse-Stage

When the Miiverse stage came out for Super Smash Bros., I was excited to see some cool drawings. And while there are some great ones, most of them are either “I like [insert character’s name here]” or inappropriate pictures. So, right away I challenged myself to do at least one drawing for each character in the roster. I think I’m doing good so far, please let me know what you think. I’ll keep the list updated.

[Update: 12/27] More fighters to do: Cloud, Corrin, and Bayonetta

[Update: 10/17] Added Marth.

[Update: 8/28] Added Bowser.

If you wish to see the list of characters left to do and all the pictures so far… Read the rest of this entry →

Fire Emblem Fates Has Online Multiplayer

Published June 27, 2015 by Amanda B. Greene

Capture

According to Gematsu, Fire Emblem If has online multiplayer, a feature not announced by Nintendo before the release in Japan. It’s interesting how you can have five versus five battles with friends or strangers. I’m don’t know whether or not your characters die in this, but if they do, then I’m sure there will be bloodshed (not just in the game).

What do you think? If your units do die, would you dare to try fighting other people or not touch this mode? Myself, I’d probably be too scared to try it if that’s the case. Still, it’s great that Nintendo is attempting different ways of trying to implement multiplayer in the series like Awakening and Shadow Dragon did.

The End Of E3

GameInformer has done recaps for the rest of the days: #2, #3, and #4. I have some catching up to do myself, but from what I’ve heard, Sony really nailed E3. The return of the long awaited Last Guardian really got people back on the hype train. Microsoft didn’t do bad either with their latest Gears Of War and Halo titles.

Nintendo has been getting a lot of criticism on multiple fronts, but there was still some redeeming qualities despite no-shows like The Legend Of Zelda (Wii U). Both Fire Emblem Fates and Xenoblade Chronicles X look incredible with their latest trailers. The Digital Event focused heavily on Mario, more specifically Mario Maker, due to his 30th Anniversary.

That’s all I have for now, and I’ll post again soon!
