Reggie will be top tier
It’s been over one year since the Wii U debuted and… things could be a bit better? While not like the hyperbole doomsayers, the Wii U is in need of a boost, and four things come to mind immediately. Let’s look!
Kaushik here again, back to review another video game. My first reviewed Wii U title in fact, Super Mario 3D World. I may never have expressed my views on this particular series of games before, but I’ll do so now as a quick preface. As far as recent Mario games have been concerned, I have not been totally impressed. Particularly with the New Super Mario Bros. line of games, and the predecessor to this title, Super Mario 3D Land. So my expectations for this game were not high to begin with. However, I got a chance to play (and beat) the game over the last two weeks, and I must say, this is a must-have game for Wii U owners. All fifteen of you.
So spooky you’ll turn into a ghost type!
Pokemon has always been known for ghost stories and creepypasta, perfect for Halloween but instead of the old hat Lavender Town stories, the Red is dead story, and the Pokemon “Black” (no relation to generation five) story, on this dark and stormy night, let’s hear some ghost stories that never get enough attention.
With the release of Pokemon X and Y, players are going wild to debunk the game’s secrets and Pokemon themselves. Every internet outlet has been exploding with information and now that we have the game in our hands (officially) what can we see from the first few moments of gameplay? Here are five first impressions that stood out to me in the first few moments of gameplay.
In today’s Nintendo Direct, the first piece of Pikmin 3 DLC was announced and is available for download now. The DLC is free and will add one new map to the game’s mission mode (challenger mode).
Also announced was the “Collect Treasure” pack containing three additional mission mode maps, which is also available now for a price of $1.99. This won’t be the last piece of DLC for Pikmin 3 according to Nintendo. Additional content will be available down the road. For fans of the game, this is great news.
At PAX this past weekend, Hideki Kamiya from Platinum Games announced that Bayonetta and Jeanne are secret characters in The Wonderful 101. Kamiya served as director of The Wonderful 101 and was the creator of Bayonetta.
I’m a generally negative person, but there are always a few stories out there that really move me. This story was one for sure.
After browsing Facebook earlier today, I saw post in my news feed by IGN that caught my eye. An IGN blogger by the name of zenspath shared a touching story about his almost blind daughter Jennifer and her difficulty in trying to play video games. However, it turned out the Wii U GamePad and Super Luigi U were the perfect combination to enable his daughter to have her first video game experience.
