As a child born in the late 80's and raised through the 90's, I was brought up with video games. I've spent countless hours with the likes of Sega, Atari and those Tiger LCD handhelds, but none captivated my interest and heart as much as Nintendo.

This blog is my love letter to the big N. My neverending purpose is to post everything related to the gaming giant loved by millions around the world. From the games, to the merchandise, the cartoons and the consoles.

I found the late 80’s/early 90’s all jammed into this commercial for California Games on the NES.

Watch it here.

Bomb Man from the Bandai toy line based on the 90’s Mega Man animated series.

The second series figures are tougher than the first series figures. The figure known as Bombman had a short distribution because of the Oklahoma bombing, and he was pulled from shelves and production.

I was lucky to have found this fella at the local hobby shop today. Even luckier to have paid a lot less than they go for online (sealed figures go as high as 60 bucks!).

A very nice piece of Super Smash Bros. 4 fan art featuring the animated series counterparts of Mario, Sonic, Mega Man and Pac Man.

Found here. Would love to know the actual artist.

The beehive from Smash Bros 3D that enables you to cover your opponent in live bees.

BEES! THEY’RE RIPPING MY FLESH OFF!

YOUR WEAPONS ARE USELESS AGAINST THEM!

A match I recorded between Mega Man and Villager (female outfit). Recorded with my webcam so not the best quality. 

That being said, none of the videos do the visuals justice. The 3D is good, the graphics have a cel-shaded look and everything runs very smooth and crisp

Super Smash Bros. 3DS Demo Thoughts So Far:

I’ve spend about an hour with it now, so I think I can throw my two cents in and give a general opinion on it. For the skeptics out there, rest easy it’s fun. If the demo is this enjoyable, the full experience is going to meet and exceed expectations.

Since it’s a demo, only five characters are playable, Mario, Link, Pikachu, Villager and Mega Man. It gives a full view of the roster but outside of the five mentioned, they can’t be chosen. Same with the stages. out of the 27 I counted only Battlefield is available. Not a bad stage, pretty standard, no environmental hazards or anything crazy going on. 

It allows you to select CPU fighter’s levels, ranging from 1 to 9 like the past entries. Since it was my first go, I left it at 4. Mostly just to get a feel of the controls and the speed of the game.

Mario, Link and Pikachu play relatively similar as they did in Brawl. There wasn’t any big changes from what I could tell. It looks as if they kept Link’s Twilight Princess appearance instead of using his Skyward Sword look.

Villager - Very fun character to play and watch. Uses a slingshot, boxing gloves in his strikes, has the ability to hit you with trees he grows and digs the ground out from under his opponents with a shovel. He’s a little more simple to pick up and play as opposed to Mega Man. His/Her (you can select a female or male version) final smash , Tom Nook comes and builds a house around your opponent and sends them flying offscreen.

Mega Man - He’s easier to control here than he is in Tatsunoko vs Capcom on the Wii. He has no strikes, instead he uses his buster and shoots three round bursts (can be charged like Samus’) He borrows his attack from past robot masters like, Wood Man’s Leaf Shield, Tornado Man’s Tornado Blow and Metal Man’s Saw Blades. He’ll be a good choice for spam heavy players. *Edit I finally hit someone with his final smash. I just thought it was a giant mass. Didn’t see the super awesome multiverse Mega Man gang bang that takes place. 

New Weapons -  I’m just listing the couple that stuck out the most. The Blue Shell is as rage inducing as it is in Mario Kart. You toss it and it follows your opponent wherever they are and hits them. There’s a sword made of those spinning fireball um… things from Bowser’s castle in the original Super Mario (have no idea what they’re called). My favorite we’re the Assist Trophies. Mostly ones returning from Brawl. My favorite new weapon was the Galaga ship (pictured above). You toss it at your opponent, it sends out a tractor beam and hauls him off screen. The Pong assist trophy was pretty interesting as well and really caught me off guard. Pokeballs are back with some new Pokemon from X and Y. Made me really happy to see Dedenne making an appearance.

Well that’s my basic overview. The demo will be released worldwide next Friday. If you’re a fan I recommend getting it very highly and start fine tuning those skills.

BIG thanks to my friend Tiffany who runs the local GameStop for hooking me up with this code. This wouldn’t have been done without her help. Just goes to show, not all GameStops suck :p
