Ubisoft talks down the relevance of linear games, Nintendo’s ninth generation console may be another low power effort, and 343’s Frank O’Connor treats Halo fans as though they were idiots in the news of the week!
Lusipurr, SiliconNooB, and Mel find themselves utterly downhearted after sifting through yet another week of depressing news. But then, they find a ray of hope in an unlikely place, and things begin to look up, eventually culminating in a very merry Bup.
Ethos jumps ahead a few decades from last week to talk about all the modern games he has been playing. Read and then comment to tell him that he is not nearly as cool as he thinks he is.
Heeding a request for consumer advice, Lusipurr provides an in-depth analysis of the Nintendo Wii U, SiliconNooB highlights Ubisoft’s policy of prevarication, and Bup talks about his favourite Indie game.
Mel reviews the newest entry in Nintendo’s brawler franchise as it has been adapted for the handheld environment. How has the gameplay transitioned and how does the new content on offer fare? Give it a read and be better informed!
Ethos and SiliconNooB discuss changes to PlayStation Network content and prices, Mel buys Smash Bros. fN3DS whilst Bup muses on Nintendo’s decision to release it just a month before the Wii U version, and Lusipurr searches for the best ‘beginner RPG’.
Mel cracks open his encyclopedia of gaming knowledge and puts together a short primer of Smash Bros. technical terms. As a lead up to his review of the 3DS entry in the series, take a look at these terms and become more familiar with competitive play!
On the back of an interview with Hajime Tabata, Lusipurr expresses some mild concerns about Final Fantasy XV, Mel dives headfirst into the Dynasty Warriors franchise, and Bup prepares to deliver an in-depth evaluation of the recent iPhone 6 launch.
“Objection!” “Hold it!” “Get over here!” Wait, wrong game. Sorry!
Tomorrow everyone gets a go at the downloadable demo, but Mel was lucky enough to snag it a week early. After some hands on time and some consideration of video from the Japanese full release, Mel has drafted his thoughts on the game thus far. Come see!
