Other than the new Metal Gear, Smash is the game I've been waiting for. Smash has always had a special place in me heart, and the fact that the online is pretty decent and now I have a ton of friends to play with on TAY is really, really exciting. I know who on TAY's getting it, and I'm trying gauge how good… » 10/01/14 11:08am Today 11:08am

OH HELL YEAH! OMG THE GAME IS SO CLOSE! It's too close for comfort!!!

YAY FOR SHAY (sure) ! The hype is beyond real holy moly this isssssss it it's so close, time to prove my mettle!

One thing though - can people spectate? We're going to have a tough time setting up who's fighting who unless there's a tournament… » 10/01/14 11:06am Today 11:06am

Hey Zarn, great review! Really in-depth and it's definitely gotten me more interested in wanting to play the game. I tried out the demo and felt it was OK, but I suppose it's only a small portion of what seems to be so much packed into the title. I had no idea there'd be that many characters and then the number of… » 9/30/14 11:29am Yesterday 11:29am

Do you think this game will get a cheaper, bundled version with all the DLC down the line? With DLC being new to Nintendo, and many companies packaging their game and DLCs into "Premium/Full/GoTY" editions, I can see myself waiting for that version as once I get my Wii U, I'll totally be set with Smash, MK8, and… » 9/30/14 11:16am Yesterday 11:16am

Well said, DS! Halo was always clean in its aesthetic and although I barely touched Halo 3's campaign (never got into the story, although I tried to starting with 2 where I mostly just played multiplayer online) , I do remember how beautiful I think it looked. Halo 4 pushed it even further, on the same console after… » 9/25/14 12:11pm 9/25/14 12:11pm

Okay, so I haven't been trick or treating in a long time - I'd feel embarrassed to and I find older than teens trick or treating coming to my door acting a fool really annoying, so yeah haha.

But yeah, since I've started a new diet and exercise, I want to get in better shape for a number of reasons, including becoming… » 9/25/14 11:12am 9/25/14 11:12am

Woah, that interface is unreal in the screenshot you posted.

Also, is there any reason why the game is spelled the way it is? Sorta ridiculous...haha.

Anyway, it's a shame the game couldn't be any good - your article opener is how we all felt! » 9/25/14 10:30am 9/25/14 10:30am

Again, nice write up!

For Mega Man, the key is to not approach him like a Smash character - the best bet is to play him as he acts in his own side scrolling Mega Man games! It's no wonder why his buster attack is repeated three times in his moveset. At first, I was annoyed, and even now I do wish he had a different… » 9/24/14 10:33pm 9/24/14 10:33pm

I've finally gotten around to clearing up the ol' back log of games I've been talking about here and there.

I was going to give praise to the sleeper surprise Sleeping Dogs, and I still do which I beat last Friday, but now all my focus is on Bioshock Infinite, which I beat last night. I've found I enjoy playing… » 9/23/14 11:06am 9/23/14 11:06am

Hello Marylee!

As a lot have already mentioned, having a distinct visual style really helps the game age, and really defines it with a voice that makes the title stand out amongst the crowd.

Here are a few of my favorite games that developed a unique aesthetic skin to garner favor with the player:

OMG! I love dogs so seeing this...It was so cute to see DD as a puppy and now a full fledged adult!

If you can really take him on missions...Holy moly, one more new element to play around with in this amazing lookng game! I hope future figures of Big Boss comes with DD!

My only gripe is...the freakin dog has an eye… » 9/20/14 12:42pm 9/20/14 12:42pm

Nach, get the rain to stop~ I can't take out Koda in this weather! She's so bored T.T Poor thing.

Btw, #floridaproblems, a fucking lizard thing was crawling around my monitor yesterday. Made me jump out of my damn chair. I can punch spiders no problem, but trying to get the lizard is going to be its own problem.… » 9/19/14 7:36pm 9/19/14 7:36pm

Nice review, Ben!

Never really been interested in this kinda stuff, but over Skylanders, I'd be interested in this as Disney and Marvel are two of my favorite properties. Of course, because Amiibos are coming around, I don't see myself boarding the Infinity bandwagon.

Playing this, I assume you've got a better gist… » 9/19/14 10:16am 9/19/14 10:16am
