Special: My Miiverse Mission

Published July 10, 2015 by Amanda B. Greene

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

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!

Here’s The First English Trailer Of Fire Emblem If (Now Called Fates)

Fire Emblem If is now changed to Fire Emblem Fates for the west. I’m unsure how I feel about the English voices (especially male Kamui), but other than that this trailer is making the long 2016 wait even more painful. It keeps looking better with every update… I need this game. Anyways, here it is:

First Impressions: Splatoon

Published June 14, 2015 by Amanda B. Greene

Splatoon is Nintendo’s hippest new IP that really shows that Nintendo still has plenty of creative juices flowing. Everything is enjoyable from transforming into a squid to seeing the Miiverse community (mostly funny memes) in the plaza. I got to do the whole single-player campaign and a little of the Battle Dojo, but unfortunately not the main event. I’ll hold off from doing the review until then, but from what I’ve played, I highly recommend it to any Wii U owner.

*I apologize for taking so long to publish this. I was planning on waiting until I was able to go online to play the main “Turf War” mode or regular battles, but it wouldn’t work for me. From what I’ve heard, the servers actually do very well, it’s just that my internet connection sucks.
