Video Game Characters Posing With The Old Versions Of Themselves
Pretty cool, but the only thing I don’t get is why Snake and Link aren’t with their original selves.
If we’re going to be picky enough that we’re not counting Metal Gear Solid as Snake’s original appearance, then I might as well point out that Super Mario Bros. wasn’t Mario’s original appearance and Grand Theft Auto used to be a 2D series.
These are also good points.
That is also the GameCube remake version of the Resident Evil Zombie

I finally started my (re)play-through of Silent Hill! Since my Youtube videos have a limit on them for 15 minutes I’m splitting the videos between every save to try and keep some kind of flow.
Part 2 will be uploaded later tonight! :)
-I’m hoping to play through each of the Silent Hill’s in order of release and add the recordings…
I am going to try and write a post a day for each of the games that I saw at Nintendo over the weekend. Though technically today I’m writing about two games and the Amiibo’s, as I want to write about both the 3DS and Wii U versions. Plus I feel like since the Amiibo line is launching along with Smash you can’t talk about one without the other. Well, you can, but I don’t want to. So let’s talk about the Amiibo interactive figures first!
While you are going to be able to connect your Amiibo into Smash Bros, that aspect wasn’t shown in person, which is fine as I don’t imagine you could really show how it collects your personal play data in a short demo. We were shown a video on how they are going to work and how it will also be able to connect to the 3DS using an external accessory. There were a few of the planned launch Amiibo’s made available for viewing, so I was finally able to get an up close look at them. They’ve looked great in images and in video, and seeing them in person you can tell why. THE DETAILS! Sure these interactive figures aren’t very large in scale, but you can see that they have the Nintendo quality that we all know and love. If these did nothing at all, I’d still go buy my favorite characters and put them on display. I asked about the prices of Amiibo’s, but was told there is still no official word on that yet.
Official feature list listing official features:
• amiibo can interact with compatible games when players touch them to the Wii U GamePad controller, reading character data into games and saving data to the figure.
• Different compatible games will use amiibo in different ways. Super Smash Bros. for Wii U will be the first game to use amiibo. Games like Mario Kart 8, Mario Party 10, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker and Yoshi’s Woolly World are also planned to support amiibo.
• In Super Smash Bros., players can battle alongside or against their amiibo characters, leveling them up in the process. They can then bring them to a friend who has a Wii U and the game to show off how they’ve trained and customized their characters.
• A new NFC reader/writer, which is being designed for Nintendo 3DS, is scheduled to launch in 2015.
Being that it was a demo build I was unable to check out any online vs play, which was probably for the best because I am terrible at fighting games. Placed in the exclusive to the 3DS mode “Smash Run”, I went straight for the Animal Crossing Villager character, and proceeded to hit every enemy on screen with an umbrella. Even though I had high expectations, I was still surprised by how sharp and vibrant the game looked on a 3DS. As a non-hardcore Smash Bros. player I found it very easy to pick up and play. It didn’t look or feel like a basic port to have multiple versions out there. It played like a game built for the 3DS.
Nintendo’s not joking around, they want you to want both versions.
For the Wii U version of Smash Bros. I was placed in a fight with 3 other people. I enjoyed playing as the Villager so much that I went straight for playing as him again. We were able to pick our own levels and chose to fight in Little Mac’s boxing ring. Since I am unfamiliar with most of the move sets I just tried to beat anyone that came near me with an umbrella, as I rode around on a gyroid rocket.
The gyroid can both be used as a weapon, and as a brief method of transportation!
I was in 4th place of course. I had no idea what I was doing, but it was still fun. The roster is really incredible (36 characters announced so far), and you can play as your Mii. I will totally play as my Mii when I am not hitting people with umbrellas as the villager.
You can find Super Smash Bros. for the 3DS on October 3rd, and Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U will be available in time for the holidays.Hands on with Smash Bros I am going to try and write a post a day for each of the games that I saw at Nintendo over the weekend.
dear god, let it be enough
The shiny black case features the fateful Ezekiel passage voiced by Jules Winnfield in the film. Inside, there’s a generous mirror and a blood-red double-ended brush (a compact shadow brush and a multitasker brush).
The other day I had the pleasure of meeting with Nintendo to demo a few of their upcoming titles: Super Smash Bros on 3DS & Wii U, Captain Toad Treasure Tracker, Yoshi’s Woolly World, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, Hyrule Warriors, and Bayonetta 2.
I really want to give each game that I played it’s own post, and since this post is titled ‘Hands on with Bayonetta 2‘, you can safely guess which game this first post will focus on.
Bayonetta 2 wasn’t the first game I was shown, but it is the title I am most anticipating. I’m a huge fan of the first one, and have been waiting patiently for this game since its announcement. Wearing the Bayonetta frames while at the demo showed off my fangirlness, and set up some pretty high expectations for what battle scores I should obtain. :D
I’m not sure exactly at what point in the game I was placed, I assume it was fairly early on. As soon as I had the Wii U gamepad in my hands, I felt right at home. Bayonetta moved as gracefully, and fluidly as ever. The world was beautiful, and the characters had great detail. I loved how there were butterflies that flew out of the ground with each step she took. I remember similar details in the original, but it was a lot more pronounced this time around, gave it even more of a magical feel.
I went 3 rounds with some badies, coming in with a platinum, gold, then platinum score. I felt such a rush of excitement when playing, I had to hand over the controller to someone else to make sure I didn’t hog up all of the time with the game. It was so much fun, I was already sold at that point, and just had to share in that experience.
There are new weapons, moves, climaxes and more! Bayonetta’s also got a rad new haircut.
If you’re a fan of the series and were wondering if you should pre-order Bayonetta 2, my suggestion is a big YES. If you’ve never played the first game and are interested in playing, they got you covered on that too. Not only do you get Bayonetta 2, you get the original game packed in also! – WITH NINTENDO THEMED COSTUMES FOR BAYONETTA LIKE LINK AND PRINCESS PEACH OMG.
Bayonetta 2 is definitely a day one purchase for me.
