Super Smash Bros. Character Suggestions

With Mewtwo soon to be released as a DLC character in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS, and Lucas now being confirmed to return in June, Nintendo has now given players the option to vote for other potential DLC characters on the Smash Bros. website. I've already voted a number of times, and it's a very simple process. Just name the character, the game or series they're from, and provide a short explanation why that character should be in the game. Hopefully this will actually put in a great DLC character or two in the future.

So far I've voted for Geno, Fawful, and of course, Dixie Kong, who should have already been in the series in Brawl.

I strongly suggest we all band together and continue voting for beloved, obscure characters. But if anyone votes for any more of those freaking Kid Icarus characters, I'll have you committed to an asylum.

Zelda Wii U Delayed

It's not too surprising to hear that The Legend of Zelda on Wii U has been delayed. It would be harder to think of a major Nintendo game that wasn't delayed than one that was. Delaying games is what Nintendo does, and you have to respect them for that. There aren't many companies in any fields who would sacrifice immediate profit for a better product. So kudos to them on that. Hopefully this means they can take extra time to double up on Zelda Wii U's Wind Waker-ness, and iron out some of the Skyward Sword-ness.

Of course, Zelda's absence means Nintendo will need something big to release towards the end of the year, since they usually like to deliver something big as a "Christmas game" in any given year (except 2008, when they released Smash Bros. Brawl and Mario Kart Wii early in the year and decided that was it). Some gamers are of course yammering that Nintendo doesn't have anything else to release this year, because apparently to these people Splatoon and Mario Maker just don't exist.

Nintendo's 2015 lineup without Zelda certainly takes a hit, but the two aforementioned titles, as well as "smaller" games like Yoshi's Wooly World will still keep things interesting.

However, one thing I don't understand is that Zelda Wii U will be a no show at E3. Does this just mean it won't be on the show floor? That would be understandable, since the delay may mean it just won't be ready to be shown off in a playable capacity. But does Nintendo mean it won't have any presence at E3 at all? It seems a bit baffling that they couldn't cook up a trailer or something.

The big question though, is what game gets the November/December spot on Nintendo's calendar? Mario Maker still doesn't have a release date, so I suppose it's possible it could be held off for the end of the year. But with Splatoon and Wooly World coming in just a few short months, it seems weird that Nintendo would wait that long for another major Wii U release. It might be safe to assume Mario Maker gets a release sometime during the Summer, and perhaps Nintendo will do what they did in 2013 with Mario 3D World, and reveal a big game at E3 that will be released by the year's end. Hard telling what that could be. A 3D Mario seems unlikely at this current time (but again, 3D World just kind of showed up so who knows), perhaps it could be the new Star Fox that was promised last year, should Nintendo stick to their word and show the game off at E3 this year.

But if not Star Fox, what else could it be? A new Mario RPG (hopefully one that doesn't pull a Sticker Star)? Another new IP to compliment Splatoon? Perhaps the Project Big Robot demonstration can be turned into a complete, compelling game.

Whatever the case may be, it will be interesting to see how Nintendo fills that very noticeable hole they now have at the end of 2015.

Merry Christmas! + My New Website is Here!!

Merry Christmas you wonderful old building and loan! May you all have peace and happiness on this wonderful day!

As a Christmas present (to myself, I guess), my new website is finally up and running! I have 18 video game reviews, 2 animated movie reviews (and working on a third), one top 5 list, and one other article already up for your reading pleasure, plus an about page (and a page about my new scoring system within the about page). The new site is...

Yes, it's a silly name, but also awesome! I hope you enjoy it, and I'll get cracking on more reviews and whatnot soon, including reviews for Playstation, Xbox and retro games!

Merry Christmas!

My New Website is Coming Very Soon!

Hey everyone (and by 'everyone' I mean two know who you are)! I guess it's been a while since I put a blog here on GS, and although I don't have much to say at the moment, I do have something (relatively) big. My new website will be up very soon! Actually, it technically is up, I just haven't put anything on it just yet. I have a few video game reviews written and ready to go, but I'm waiting until I have a good batch of them before I "officially" launch it. I also will not link to the site until I have everything together.

Please note that this first wave of reviews may be somewhat short, since I'm trying to make sure I have a decent handful all at once. Still taking my time with them, but don't expect any 2000+ word reviews out the gate. Also note that some of them will be reviews for games I've reviewed before, so there may be some similarities there. I'm trying to get around to reviewing all my 3DS and Wii U games, so some will be new, others rewrites (also, I plan on doing reviews for games on Sony and Microsoft consoles of course, as well as doing reviews for older and classic games from the PS2 era, PSOne/N64 era and even the NES and SNES eras in time). I will also launch the site with at least one top 5 list, and hopefully a review for an animated film or two before I set it all up.

So yes, I'm tooting my own horn. I apologize. But I've been promising this new site for a good while now, and I'm happy that it's almost ready. It may not be much, but hey, it's just starting.
