Nintendo Direct Tomorrow! (April 17th)

So it would seem that Nintendo is holding another “Nintendo Direct” show tomorrow and will be featuring the 3DS! I for one am extremely excited about this development because the 3ds is a system that is just hemorrhaging games at the moment. Nintendo is certainly using this momentum to increase sales and to announce hopefully some updates on Animal Crossing or Donkey Kong as they are set to release in the next couple months (donkey kong = may 24th; AC = June 9th). Speculation would lead one to believe they could announce some new virtual console games or even (although less likely) a new game for the system itself. More to come tomorrow but it’s always fun to talk about the “could be’s” of gaming.

Normally I’d ask to comment, and still encourage it, but I’ll post the details of the show tomorrow, eliminating the need for speculation after that time.

Thanks for your time, and it’s good to be back!

Hello Once Again!

I see at least a few people have managed to not only find the site, but grab some useful information from my posts which is great! School is no longer an issue, and that being the case I will once again begin to post away! There are many things I wish to address, so look out for my next few posts!

Sorry, No New Posts for a While.

I underestimated the amount of time required to consistently run a blog, so I will NOT be posting any new content at least until the middle of April  when school is done. I know i’m not disappointing anyone, but just in-case you come across the site and wonder whats up, now you know.

Thanks for understanding

Another Round of High Review Scores (From IGN): The Pattern of 2013?

Let’s face it, this year to date has had some amazing releases, with Ni no kuni, Fire Emblem Awakening, Tomb Raider, Dead Space 3, Gears of War Judgement, Monster Hunter Ultimate, and soon-to-be released Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon and Bioshock Infinite. All of these adventures offer some incredible gaming experiences, and it seems as though this year still has so much to offer, including the supposed holiday release of the next gen Playstation and Xbox. IGN has either been overly generous so far, or these games are really deserving of they’re extremely high scores, each of the above (with the exception of dead space) getting at least an 8.5.

I know my wallet is hurting because of all of these great releases, and it seems people who have most of the current consoles have had a great year so far (With the exception of the Vita, and the Wii-U, sorry, the rest of the year looks promising though). However this rate of amazing game releases will not keep up forever, as game companies do not have the ability to produce major releases every other month.

Why do you think all of these great releases are bombarding us at the same time? Convenience? Or because these consoles are trying to go out with a bang? Either way, It’s definitely a good thing that Sony and Microsoft haven’t turned away from they’re respective consoles, and I can’t wait for the new console generation.

Again don’t get me wrong, Nintendo has a great lineup to come (for the Wii-U), they just haven’t had anywhere near the thunder that the Xbox and PS3 have had. With the exception of their 3DS, of course.

Hope to hear from you in the comments!
