Greetings, after a stupidly long radio silence, I'm back with news, opinions, and all those things the internet is built on.
First off, Skullgirls. Live it. Breathe it. Love it. Don't ask what it is, just accept it into your life.
Okay maybe that's a little too extreme :shock: In case you haven't heard, Skullgirls is a semi-recent fighting game that came out on the PSN and Xbox Live Arcade last April. It features a cast of 8 (with more on the way) playable characters and it set out with the sole purpose of combining every good thing about fighting games while trying to fix/minimize the bad. If you're an avid fan of fighting games, I highly recommend it; the game is $14.99 and features a free demo if you wanna try it out first.
Secondly, I recently heard the newest news of Super Smash Bros. 4: Namco-Bandai (or Bandai-Namco/Bamco), best known for the Soul Calibur,Tales of,Tekken series (and various anime-based fighting games) is throwing their card in the hat and are helping with the creation of the game. Namco Bandai is my favorite video game developer, and Smash Bros is my favorite video game franchise, so I'm putting this out here right now for all to know: If SSB4 isn't the greatest thing ever, I'm giving up video games, no joke...cuz for me, there's no longer a reason for this game to be anything short of amazing.
Which leads me into the Wii U (aka the Wii 2). Still don't agree with the name; "Wii" may have grown on everyone, but I feel like "Wii U" won't be nearly as catchy. I've been with Nintendo since the NES, but even I can recognize when they're not doin' right. Nintendo's reveal of the Wii U didn't go very well last year, and this year people still aren't too sure what they're lookin' at. The stuff they showed at E3 looked nice, really nice, but I wanna know how much it's gonna cost me, why are they making not one, but two *New* Super Mario Bros games instead of working on something new (was the New Super Mario Bros that popular that it warranted all these sequels)?? And WHY are people using Gamestop's computer info as a source for the supposed price for Wii U games??? $100? :roll: Really, I know we're moving into the next generation, but use some sense. I'm guessing $60....$70 at most per game.
Lastly, I wanted to shamelessly take this opportunity to advertise my new webcomic The Latest Patch, it's a story of a freelance worker named Patch doin' what patches do best: fixing things. It's only 5 pages in (at the time of writing this), but I have big plans for it, and I ask that if you have the chance, to please look at it, it would be much appreciated, and won't go unrewarded.You don't even have to be registered to view or comment.:o
