Oh thank god it was just a pac-man announce trailer.  The title of it had me worried they were gonna do some dumb pokemon bullshit and release three different versions of the game.

There's the added bonus of a free game download if you get Mario Kart 8 (not sure how soon this offer is going to end). Pikmin 3, New Super Mario Bros. U, Zelda: Wind Waker HD or Wii Party U.

That's awesome. THAT is how you do DLC. Release a full, complete game, and then take actual time to add new, time consuming content that people want that expands the game. SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY.

I have a WII U, and have since launch day.  While that is an amazing list of DLC, the one thing that's keeping me from investing is if my system dies, I lose everything.  Nintendo really needs to fix this and incorporate a system like SEN and XBox Live.

There's an upgraded 3ds coming out. In addition to a bunch of small changes its got a faster processor, so there will be games that can only be played on it and not the regular 3ds line. It's called the New 3ds.

That won't confuse people AT ALL.

Gods, the name. Seriously, if WiiU was bad, this is just worse.

I think two of those "small changes" need to be mentioned.

A second analog stick, something everyone said (including Nintendo) wouldn't happen. It'll function just like the C-Stick from the Gamecube for Smash. We've also got Xenoblade Chronicles getting ported to it, which now explains why they have Shulk joining the Smash roster. Two new buttons on the upper part of the machine as well.

The other thing is that the battery life will be improved as the system's back lighting will now adjust to your surroundings. More hours and less changing means more gaming on the go.

I now feel vindicated in holding off on buying a 3DS. Even after the XL I knew there had to be another upgrade coming. I've been conditioned never to buy any hardware until after it's a few years old.

I feel a bit pissed at ninty for this. I got the 3DS XL,  now I feel as if if I want to keep playing games on the system I have to upgrade.  It's not a new console it's a small update. I think they should honestly do an upgrade program where you can trade in your existing for a small price increase.

'Select Platinum Members' are getting emailed 4 codes to download the 3ds smash brothers demo today (general public can download it next week.) I've hit platinum each of the last 4 or 5 years but I'm not platinum yet this year and I suspect the use of the word 'select' members means I won't qualify. If anyone here gets codes and wants to share one with their uncle Smuesy I'd be eternally* grateful.

Well I'm sure there's something to get trophies but there's nothing like the Melee Adventure Mode or Brawl's Subspace Emissary. Apparently Masahiro Sakurai said the team worked really hard on all the cut-scenes in Brawl only to have them all leaked online, which made the experience 'less rewarding', so... that' the end of that.

Wait seriously? Well fuck. I don't play smash brothers multiplayer like ever. So ...fuck that dampens my spirits. Well I need to look more into this now, but the answer before Venkman crushed my hopes and dreams was both, and that my plan even before I saw club Nintendo has a free soundtrack disc offer if you buy both. (Im sure it's just a partial soundtrack though. I hope the full ones are ripped and leaked online like with Brawl,  because that was amazing.)

For the record the story I read was from 2013...

And also stated the following:

Quote
Update: I think some people are misinterpreting this. This isn’t to say that there will be no single player mode whatsoever, just that it won’t be the sort of story mode we found in Brawl with Subspace Emissary. That’s also not to say story mode in that game was the greatest thing ever, and the new Smash will be terrible because of this decision. I just believe the rationale of cutscenes being ripped to YouTube is a horrible pretense to abandon the concept. In any case, I’m waiting to hear back from Nintendo for further clarification.

I feel like I read the story elsewhere before - this is from Forbes.com but I think I read it on Kotaku prior. Or Mashable.

Here's what Mashable is saying a few months ago:

Quote
Smash Run seems to be replacing Adventure Mode, though there is no word on if it will make the transition to the Wii U version or if another invention will take its place. Sakurai has already publicly axed the game's story mode after being upset that the cut scenes were being leaked on YouTube.

From what I can see about the new Smash, is that you can customize your character, right? Could that mean that everyone's character will be technically not function the same. Like you'll know who it is, the basis of what they can do, but the actual nitty gritty plays out differently?

If so, this would make for a fun time.

So, I'm not much of a beggar, but does anyone here with a 3DS have a spare code for the Smash Bros. demo?  I'd really like to check it out, but I did not reach "platinum status" with the Club Nintendo points this year, even though I probably could have if I had just registered my damn games and taken the stupid quizzes.  And that's really dorky, but still, I love free shit more than my pride.  So help me out?  And feel free to provide me with any other codes for free shit that you might have lying around.  xoxo BUTT

Edit: I just read the rest of this page and saw that Smues asked for the same exact thing, to no apparent satisfaction.  balls

Edit #2: If I had just looked on CAG a few days ago I probably could have got one but oh well.

Mucked around with the demo for awhile. Don't think it's going to be enough to distract me from not having my copy of Theatrthym Curtain Call for a week, but it certainly has me excited for the full release. It's just got free for all brawls of 2 to 4 characters for 2 minutes on one stage, but it does offer five playable characters. Link, Mario, Pikachu, Mega Man, and Villager. Villagers final smash involves Tom Nook. YES YES YES.

Quote from: Kotaku
Nintendo, best known as the creator of the dog from Duck Hunt, turns 125 today, and if that doesn't seem very old, consider this: when Nintendo first started, the U.S. had 38 states, and the president was Benjamin Harrison.

Yep, today we know Nintendo for iconic video games like Barker Bill's Trick Shooting and Ken Griffey, Jr. Presents Major League Baseball, but for most of the company's life it was developing and producing cards, toys, and all sorts of other random ventures. Nintendo didn't actually get into electronic gaming until the 1970s.

Nintendo was born on September 23, 1889, and right now in Japan it is September 23, 2014. Happy birthday, Nintendo! Keep up the good work.

So apparently the new Fatal Frame game came out in Japan, and its got wet clothes that actually look wet, has DoA's jiggle physics (low setting though) and also has skimpy costume outfits that you can dress your character up in. On the downside, it isn't very scary, many Japanese players are saying.

The main dude from Factor 5 just revealed that they completed a Rogue Squadron trilogy for Wii but it was never released.

Quote
The trilogy would have included Star Wars: Rogue Squadron, Star Wars Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader, and Star Wars Rogue Squadron III: Rebel Strike, all updated for Wii.

- originally in the works for the Xbox
- Factor 5 became interested in motion controls on Wii
- the team decided to resurrect the Xbox Star Wars Trilogy project for Wii
- the team salvaged the code and started bringing the game over
- the project was 50% done on Xbox
- all control schemes were supported, including GameCube controller and various peripherals
- you could even use the Wii wheel to control your X-Wing, using the balance board for pedals
- revamped content included speeder bike racing levels, third-person action sequences, and lightsaber battles
- lightsaber battles used 1:1 motion controls
- all-new graphics engine running at 60 frames per second
- the project was completed, but then cancelled
- cancellation is blamed on the financial crisis of 2008
- other publishers tried to help out
- unfortunately, financial hardship, legal snafus and budgetary restrictions killed the game
- Julian Eggebrecht, former president of Factor 5 loves the Wii U, but its unpredictable trajectory and licensing troubles in general make a new Star Wars Wii U game unlikely

That is just stupid. So they have invested money into a completed project that would sell thousands of not millions and instead they never get it to store and blame the financial crisis.

If anything that is one of the reasons why we had a financial crisis. Pissing away money and not recouping any of the money from the finished product.
