Animal Crossing is an amazingly therapeutic game. Peanut is easily one of the most adorable villagers out there. Just had to draw her.

Crazy awesome artist Hatboy, had combined something truly awesome.  Tim Burton gothic style art and Pokemon.  Luckily, this guy is from my generation and he seems to be using the first 150 as his content material.  As you can see from above, he takes a popular Pokemon type and redraws them with Tim Burton trademark creepy features and distinct art style…I can’t seem to find another word for it besides gothic and I keep wanting to use Corpse Bridey/Nightmare Before Christmasy.  You can check out the entire gallery through his link where he does way more than some of the ones I featured here.  Go on below to check out the rest of my favorites.

So this is a really cool image about Nintento’s past with controllers.  It’s a really neat graphic that morphs the Nintendo Entertainment System controller through all the other controllers that lead up to this current Wii controller.  It’s really neat at first at how buttons  are slowly added slowly and then all of a sudden, you change from the Gamecube controller to the tiny Wii stick.  I’m sure in a couple of months the creator will make a new .gif that includes the Wii U controller.  That hulking mass of a tablet/controller.

So we’ve seen what Nintendo intends to bring to the next generation. The WiiU is comprised of a console and a tablet-like controller that allows you far more immersion into the gaming world than we’ve had originally, but that’s always been Nintendo’s survival tool. They strayed away from the normal controller based gameplay in favor of something motion based, giving the player essentially free reign to a degree on what they did in a game. Slashing the air ended up cutting down an enemy in game, and multiple other actions did other things not to mention the variety of mini games made endlessly fun (I.E. Mario Party). My question concerning that is, “what comes next?”. While we can easily look at Nintendo, who have already spoiled their next gen console for the masses and say, “That was obviously the next step in their evolution.”, is it really all that simple? Sure enough we’re all pretty bias considering we already know what they’re bringing to the party, but I can’t say that I would have said that a few months ago when speculation was still the norm.

There’s a funny collection of videos online regarding the infamously infuriating game Mario Party. Throughout the series, the AI characters have been known to be notoriously dumb in some of the mini game challenges. So this collection of videos has a character doing absolutely nothing and winning a vast majority of mini games. The funny part is that they’re all done with Luigi. Luigi, who’s known to be the character who usually gets the second hand for everything is ironically winning for once. Here’s a collection of all the videos ranging from Mario Party 2-9.

In today’s article we’ll cover something I found a little interesting. According to the article below, the Wii U, before even launching, is being named the ‘power orphan’ of the next-gen consoles. It’s understandable considering Nintendo’s penchant for not necessarily focusing on top of the line hardware when it comes to console based goals. Will this affect how the Wii U sells considering how well the original Wii sold in comparison its competitors? I’m not quite sure how it will pan out but developments like these never bode well for the console in question. Read more in the article below to check out what else has been said.

This is a very cool video of applying some of our favorite SNES games caked onto real life places and scenarios.  Whether it’s Mario at an actual desert or DK in an actual jungle, or maybe even the Street Fighters actually fighting in the street, this is a cool compilation of [some very old] video game pop culture with today’s current and very real life.

Cracked has an amazing fanbase that if they ask their users a vague but slightly general topic, they’ll flock to give them their 2 cents of wit.  And out of the dozens maybe hundreds that submit their thoughts, a small handful get picked to be presented to millions of readers.  This ‘photoplasty’ as they call it is: Video Game Twists that No One Saw coming.  You’ll see popular video game culture be combined with movies, television, and hard irony.  Enjoy below.

Awesome Video Game Twists that Didn’t Exactly Happen

So folks, Kotaku caught my eye with a rather interesting article that may or may not be true. But with a title like ‘The Last Great Wii Game’, I couldn’t help but have my interest piqued by this piece. It covers the story of a game titled ‘The Last Story’, which, as the title states, may just be the last great Wii game we’ll see before Nintendo decides to retire their family-friendly console for a more edgy, sleek, touch-screen integrated one. Either way, I hope you have a great time reading this article as it really does capture the atmosphere behind a game like this.

Alright, despite the fact that E3 2012 isn’t really over yet (at least, I don’t think it is), I’m going to go ahead and write this wrap-up article as the main performances and press conferences are already done with. With a star-studded line-up featuring the regulars such as Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo as well as developers EA and Ubisoft, people were expecting an amazing E3. Feel free to read further to see what I thought of this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo. (more…)

My main article following this one will be much more in depth than what you see right now. This is just a short article to get myself into the writing mood and allow my muse to help me get a grasp on things. Anyway, like the article says this will be a short intro to my thoughts and observations about E3 2012. First and foremost, Microsoft. While they had a spectacular opening half, I felt that they kind of dwindled and went too long on the Nike/Sports section. Additionally I think a bigger bang would have been leaving Halo 4 or Gears of War for the ending as opposed to Black Ops 2. Overall Microsoft didn’t wow me in comparison to…say…Ubisoft, Sony or Nintendo. EA and Ubisoft were on point, but I’ll cover that later on in Thursday’s big review. Sony had some amazing exclusives that I definitely can’t wait to get my hands on, and Nintendo brought the same thing they always do. Unfortunately, Nintendo seemed a little lackluster this year as well, with the only thing to catch my eye being Nintendoland and Majora’s Mask, but who doesn’t LOVE Majora’s Mask? Be sure to tune in tomorrow when I give you guys the detailed review and my thoughts about the major press conferences of E3 2012.

So, in anticipation of Nintendo’s E3 conference, today’s MBO will focus directly on Nintendo’s brand new console, the Wii-U. As we’ve already seen before, it looks to be a miniature tablet. Now, in recently leaked photos of said controller, there were a few changes that were made, most noticeably in the thumbsticks, and how they’re more pronounced in the current iteration of it as opposed to the older prototypes. More than likely this change was to accommodate the heavy gamer archetype of Nintendo’s consumer fan base. Check out the Kotaku article cited below and be sure to get back to us with your thoughts and comments about it.

Alright guys, this is it. This is the big moment of the year that every gamer looks forward to. This is the time when Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo and a slew of other gaming companies announce their plans for the rest of the year. For those of you who don’t know, the Electronic Entertainment Expo, or E3 for short, is the most prestigious and spoiler-packed event of the year for any and all gamers. Hopefully this year we will be able to see what each company has planned for the future, and personally I’m looking forward to a Borderlands 2 spoiler as well as something pertaining to Final Fantasy XIII Versus. Anyway, if you want to keep up with the event like me, stay tuned to Kotaku.

Alrighty, time for another game of the week. This week I’ll be covering a somewhat oldie but definitely a goodie, Super Smash Bros. Brawl. This amazing third installment to an amazing fighting game really took the world by storm (at least those of us who got a Wii), and really brought a lot of things to the table that fans were asking for.

With an amazing roster, cool new items, and a relatively unique single player campaign, SSBB immediately became a must-have game for anyone that owned Nintendo’s latest console. I’ll be covering the ins and outs of the game as a whole, while reminiscing with you lot about how amazing this game is for friends to play around the couch. Hopefully you’ll enjoy this review to the latest game in the Super Smash Bros. series.

So, in this hefty read, the author sums up the list of the things promised during the E3 2011 Nintendo conference. As you can see, there are a lot of things that Nintendo managed to keep. Actually, after a quick scan, I don’t think I found a promise that Nintendo DIDN’T keep. It’s really nice to see a video game giant like Nintendo sticking to their promises and giving us something without the dreaded ‘delay’ press conference. Read up on what exactly was delivered, and gauge for yourself just how professional a company like Nintendo is.
