Considering last nights Bayonetta 2 freakouts, this makes a very nice little read.

Well, reading that was refreshing.

Considering the !#%$ last night. Hypocrites.

Image It's more than that though. Outright death threats to the company were issued over that place known as Twitter. Horrible sights to behold.

Not to mention that, before all this, all anyone ever said was that Nintendo had no good third party support. That that it does have good exclusive third party support, a temper tantrum of epic proportions ensues. The irony in it all is just quite fascinating.

At the very least, "I WANT TO KICK A DOLPHIN IN ITS !#%$ HARD" has got to be the funniest line I've seen this year.

Well, thats the thing, I think the people complaining about the third party support were probably the people with wiis not getting games both other consoles had.

The people complaining now are because the consoles they have lost a game they liked.

The death threats are stupid, yes, but I don't think the base of the argument is entirely unreasonable.

Knowing fans are desperate for anything that could lead to The World Ends With You 2 at this point, Square is teasing another TWEWY related thing in the form of a "vocal audition" contest, asking fans to do covers of songs from the game.

Image Hey guys! Torchlight II is a mere 2 days away at long last. Hope to party with you guys on dungeon quests someday soon!

In the mean time, Runic's released the full soundtrack already. Free of charge!

-----------------------------------------------------

In other news, Tanukii Studios has slowly been showing off artwork for their Kokopolo sequel. It seems things are moving along rather well. Webb hopes to have the game out late this year, or at the very least, early next year. Looking forward to it.

Gotta love Kokopolo!

(One boss looks to be a clear reference to Skullomania, whom is Webb's username on NeoGAF. Totally not a coincidence.)

Skullomania is awesome, OK. He deserves to be in every game ever.


Anyways, there's a trailer for Shin Megami Tensei 4, which will be released on 3DS:
Spoiler: click to show


Seems the overworld is in 3D while the battles have 2D enemy sprites with a 3D background. Also, it might just be me, but the menu interface (atleast what I assume it is) reminds me of Dead Space's menu interface.


Oh, and while I'm at it, a new Cube World video got uploaded. This one showing off more enemies, hang gliders, and dungeons:
Spoiler: click to show

The Humble Indie Bundle 6 is now out and beating the average alone is worth it just for Dustforce (plus it's soundtrack) and if you don't already have it, Torchlight 1.

Here's a video of Dustforce.

I'm actually on the fence about this Humble Bundle. The two games I would want out of it (Dustforce and Torchlight), I already have, but I love soundtracks, so I might just get it.

Meanwhile in Japan, Phoenix and Layton get a new trailer:


What I don't get is why we Yanks, are still calling it Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright, when it's been well established that they're working together.

The TGS Ace Attorney 5 trailer shows off the new "emotion mechanic."



Meanwhile Project X Zone has a really long trailer comprised entirely of your favorite video game characters kicking ass.

Image Y'know, it's often great fun to make fun of sports games, saying how they are nothing more than just changing a number or two and then calling it a brand new game, but truth be told, there is more added into each year than we're willing to give a chance.

...FIFA 13 on the Wii however...

Finally got back to work on skinning Dylan onto Sonic in MKF.

Image Decided to simply resize his rolling sprites and it came out pretty alright. The hit box isn't perfect, but it is fairly close enough.

Currently, I need to polish it up a bit so the sprites match up a bit. Also on the pipeline I would like to adjust the music to something more..."Dylin-ish". Any ideas?

(I also intend to get an editing program that's superior to Movie Maker some day too, so I apologize for the low production value...)

Nintendo's first attempt at DLC kinda worked out for them I guess? Just a bit.

Image Saaaaay... Remember that ad I posted a while back from Bridgestone that used the Wii as a promotional tool/prize or something?

Do you remember that it had Jerry Lambert in it?

Did you remember that this is the same guy who played Kevin Butler?

We all thought the situation was pretty funny, no? Sony's big spokesman playing a Nintendo console.

...Well... Sony didn't find it funny...at all.

How the heck did I miss this post until now? I am the worst guy. D:

That's awesome B. I wish I could've helped out with the spriting but you've done a fantastic job with it and fixed most of the actual issues. :D

As for music, I don't really know. I used to have a theme song that someone made for me, but they disappeared off the face of the internet and took the song with them. :( I recall it sounding similar to the music in Diddy Kong's Racing though.

Street Fight and Resident Evil plushes...? I...no. Just...no. I'm totally fine with hugging a Chibiterasu, but not a MA-39 Cerberus...

Good point.I hope they don't make hunters. God those things are the bane of my life.
Would be great if they made some plushes off the characters though. I'd love a plush Claire and Leon. I'd probably buy my dog a Steve one :mrgreen:
