Wii U
Release Date: March 18th, 2016
Purchased at: Amazon (Online – $50)

The only pickup this week is the mashup we never thought would happen: Pokken Tournament. I was able to spend a bit of time with it (and Laura’s playing it as I’m writing this article), but so far I’m impressed. I think something I never thought I’d say in my entire life is that the launch of the Pokemon fighting game has been markedly better than the launch of Capcom’s Street Fighter V. I mean, damn, that’s saying something! The unique fighting style in Pokken is fun, at least as of now, and I’m enjoying what the game has to offer in the variety of each character. Hopefully I’ll be able to get some streams up soon! Did anyone else pick up this Wii U exclusive this week?

Throughout the years and even during the short time I’ve been on this blog I’ve seen a handful of Marios, Zeldas, Pokemons, and many other Nintendo greats come and go. They’ve consistently been what I expect and then some, but nothing has been wholly “new” (with the exception of last year’s Splatoon.). After seeing Thursday’s Nintendo Direct, I’m excited for what the future holds: more of the same great faces Nintendo has always offered. But is that enough? Should Nintendo be focusing on something new rather than giving the fans more of the same? Hmm… Read the rest of this entry »

Street Fighter V Ken

We’re knee deep in 2016 and there are a ton of awesome games scheduled for release this year!

Not just a few good games here and there, but complete years of consistently great games to keep your systems hot. So let’s check out what’s coming in 2016! Here are some games I’m anticipating to play and thoroughly enjoy this year! Read the rest of this entry »
