It’s no secret that Nintendo has been porting over several titles from it’s Wii U software lineup to the Switch. Mario Kart 8, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Pokken Tournament, Bayonetta 2 and Hyrule Warriors were all originally first party titles on the Wii U. It’s easy to be conflicted when these type of releases are announced: “Will the updates for the Switch version merit a double dip for previous Wii U owners?” When this original trailer launched, it was easy to assume that Switch owners would simply get another “updated” port. However, during last week’s E3 event, Nintendo confirmed that Super … Continue reading Super Smash… Ultimate?!
To avoid potential spoilers, please make sure to check out the the new trailer on the official Playstation YouTube channel here. One of the Sony Exclusive titles that that excites me the most is Last of Us Part II. During this year’s E3, developer Naughty Dog released some actual gameplay examples for the title. There still isn’t a solid release date yet, but it was awesome to see a glimpse of what’s to come. I first experienced Last of Us in college, on a friend’s Playstation 3. I literally could not put it down. This was during a really hectic … Continue reading Last of Us Part II Trailer at E3 2018 – Whoa.
The Electronic Entertainment Expo, known colloquially as E3, is a fantastic time of the year for gamers. The expo itself is held annually in Los Angeles, California in mid-June (June 12th- June 14th this year). It’s a place where software developers and video game companies showcase future title releases and hardware changes. Some examples of this in past years include Nintendo’s reveal of it’s Amiibo collectible NFC enabled figure line in 2014, as well as Microsoft’s unveiling of it’s higher end Xbox One X gaming console in 2017. Aside from those in attendance, the world can tune in on live … Continue reading E3 – Say What?
Nintendo released the Mario Tennis Aces pre-launch demo this past weekend on Nintendo Switch, ahead of it’s June 22nd release date. Despite a couple laggy games, it was fantastic. I went from having little interest in the title, to pre-ordering it! Full disclosure: this is the first Mario Tennis game that I’ve spent this much time with (a surprise for sure). I’ve rented the Mario Tennis game on Nintendo 64 back when I was younger, but I hadn’t tried out any of the newer titles. For the screenshots, the handle I used this time around was “HyphyBeam.” Presentation was what … Continue reading Mario Tennis Aces Online Tournament Demo – Reflections
Yesterday, the official Pokemon twitter posted that a press conference was occurring in Tokyo, Japan. This conference confirmed a major rumor that was floating around in past weeks on the Switch subreddit. Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s go Eevee are re-imaginings of Pokemon Yellow for the original Nintendo Gameboy. They aren’t remakes, but more like new games in the series. While you venture through generation I’s Kanto region, gameplay is different from the original Gameboy games. As stated in previous news leaks, these new titles will incorporate game play from the Pokemon GO smartphone app based games. The opening … Continue reading Pokemon Let’s Go Games Confirmed – Thoughts
Aren’t you lucky, two posts in one day! I’ve been spending time reworking my streaming set up. Ultimately I chose to invest in a green screen and a couple of soft box lamps. Go big or go home, right? Working a couple issues on the software side of the stream, my most previous “test” stream had a very laggy game capture come through. Peep the pic below to see a sample of the quality. It looks really clean. My room has more space too, which is always a plus! As always, keep it locked to my twitch’s channel feed or … Continue reading Green Screen : Final Decision
