Xenoblade Chronicles 3D

Xenoblade Chronicles 3D will be released April 10, 2015 for North America and Europe and will be exclusive to the New Nintendo 3DS and New 3DS XL. The eShop version of this game will be 3.6GB in size (digital copy), so if you bought the New Nintendo 3DS XL and haven’t upgrade the stock 4GB MicroSD card, a physical copy is the best choice. Many RPG fans already have an eye on this game, including myself. It might bring back the glory of the great Final Fantasy era, but on portable.

Enjoy the 7 minutes of the gameplay from IGN.

Light the Fire Up in the Night: Persona Q Impressions

Review republished with permission from Vulcan Post

What happens when you mix the intuitive draw-your-own-map-as-you-play-mechanic of Etrian Odyssey with the addictive combat and gripping slice of life gameplay of Persona? You get Persona Q, a dungeon crawler that’s an absolute must-have for any self-respecting role-playing game fanatic. Sadly if you don’t have a 3DS, you are out of luck as the game is exclusive to the handheld.

Having only played Persona 4 Golden on the PS Vita, and loving every bit of RPG (role-playing game) goodness the game had to offer, I was initially taken aback by the chibi (short person in Japanese) art style of Persona Q.

For comparisons, the following images will illustrat...

My year in gaming: 2014 edition (tjsmoke63)

2014 is winding down, and so it’s that time of year again to do those retrospective looks at the last twelve months of gaming. It’s been a year when a new generation of consoles (PS4 and Xbox One) began to come into their own, even as remasters seemed to dominate while eagerly anticipated titles were pushed off until 2015. Those who held onto their PS3s and Xbox 360s may have been glad they did so, and Nintendo owners with the Wii U rejoiced as their console of choice provided them with a steady stream of choice games that weren’t delayed another year. Handhelds had their share of great games as well, with the Playstation Vita getting a steady diet of RPGs and the Nintendo 3DS getting a nice variety of titles to choose from...

Marth, Wii Fit Trainer and the Villager Amiibo Figurines Might be Discontinued

It would appear that Nintendo doesn’t plan on shipping any more Villager, Marth or Wii Fit Trainer Amiibos.

Canadian videogame retailer “Video Games Plus” stated on their Twitter account that, “Nintendo has officially discontinued Marth, Wii Fit Trainer & Villager amibos [sic],” at least for the North American market. There is an apparent shortage when it comes to folks trying to find these three figurines in stores.

According to their Tweet,”We tried re-ordering all 3 from our official Nintendo distributor and after checking with Nintendo on their availability, they told us those 3 characters are officially discontinued by Nintendo believe it or not.”

In the past, Nintendo did say that they were going to introduce and take away various Amiibo figurines, but who would’ve expected it to be...

The latest Nintendo Direct smashes in on 24 October to showcase 50 new things around Super Smash Bros Wii U.
