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.

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.

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.

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.
