It’s actually making me excited to play (and more importantly buy) another AC game! Outside of Wii U promotions, Nintendo’s been on a roll with creative advertisements lately what with that awesome Luigi’s Mansion spot just a few months ago and those uh…hmm, well I guess that’s about it. BUT HEAR ME OUT: This clip for the upcoming new installment in the Animal Crossing series is both compelling and adorable. I can go on and on about my relationship with this franchise but that sounds dangerously close to work so I’ll save that rant for another day. Long story short, it goes like this: I’m a massive fan of the original GameCube entry (still one of the best video game soundtracks ever in my opinion), the solid DS sequel Wild World introduced portability and a much needed online component, yet my cheese was left out in the wind with City Folk for Wii. A game that made the odd design choice to actually remove features (!?).
Here’s hoping the fourth time’s the charm.
Attention, weirdos out there burdened with the unhealthy desire to wrap your creepy little mitts around any and all things Kirby-related: Today’s list of releases for the Wii U’s Virtual Console reads like a greatest hits of the pink puffball’s 16-bit adventures.This means that not only is there a good chance you already own these […]
The story behind Doug Eckhart’s Tammany Hall is almost as interesting as the story behind Tammany Hall itself; published in 2010 by Stratamax Games, it was an instant hit at gaming conventions, selling all but 80 copies. Once Stratamax sold those remaining copies, Tammany Hall was gone for good (unless you wanted to pay insane […]
… or at least not starring in Pikmin 3 Today’s Nintendo Direct brought with it some additional details on the upcoming Pikmin 3. Most surprising was the reveal that Captain Olimar will not be the protagonist for this third trip to the mysterious planet of the Pikmin. In a move to help keep things fresh/stir […]
Believe me, the temptation to leave this post completely blank was pretty strong because HONESTLY what more do you need to know beyond that headline? If any of you require someone to explain, let alone sell you on downloading this 16-bit classic that regularly frequents top games of all time lists then clearly you’ve hit […]
Which actually has me really excited even though I played the F-wording S-word out of the portable original what, 16 months ago now? I gave that initial release a glowing review on my previous website which means a good old fashioned, hard and deep double dipping awaits me when the full version is released into […]
Hey everyone, did you know that Spielberg’s 1993 dino-movie classic was put back into theaters a few weeks ago featuring a fancy new 3D facelift? Oh…uh, me too! I still haven’t gone to check it out myself but from what I hear, the movie is just as effective as ever and the conversion is actually […]
Back in the summer of ‘89 you couldn’t flush the toilet without seeing a bat symbol. The colorful old 60’s series was playing in endless rotation, action figures, t-shirts and ball caps were standard issue for any and all grade-schoolers, and that smokin’ hot Prince chick was doing the bat-dance nonstop on MTV. I was […]
