I just wanted to take a quick moment and say Happy Easter everyone! I hope you all have great day doing whatever you guys do on Easter Sunday. What games do you plan on playing later this evening?
The Pokémon Company has just announced that it will soon share news on the upcoming Pokémon X and Pokémon Y titles for 3DS. On Saturday, April 6th, the company says ‘big’ news will be revealed regarding the highly anticipated titles. So far, details on both games are scarce, but they are rumored to be bringing significant changes to the Pokémon video game series.
Pokémon X and Pokémon Y is set to launch worldwide in October. Keep it here for the big Pokémon X and Pokémon Y news coming this week.
Here is a Unreal Engine 4 Infiltrator Tech Demo for everyone to watch. If you are even remotely interested in future technology or bleeding edge graphics, I urge you all to give this video a watch. This Unreal Engine 4 Infiltrator tech demo is, pardon the pun but, unreal and I can’t wait for the video games that will support this impressive, new engine.
Watch the tech demo and let me know what you think.
This just in, Nintendo has stated that a large number of improvements are headed to Miiverse. The updates will happen over the next number of months and will improve on Nintendo’s largely popular social network.
Miiverse producer Kiyoshi Mizuki stated in his GDC talk that the Miiverse API will be updated in a future version of the Wii U Software Development Kit. This will allow a number of features that will improve interactions in Wii U software. Check out the changes below:
-Players will be able to send and receive comments in-game.
-Players will be able to see ‘Yeahs’ in-game.
-They can follow users, and see who users are following in-game.
-Users will be able to launch games from Miiverse Posts
-Launch buttons on Miiverse posts can contain program arguments, so it will be possible to boot directly to a certain level or menu in a game
-Can work with online datastore for additional functionality
-Mizuki posited the potential application of level editing and sharing via Miiverse; envisions a game where users bring the game to life
-User Sub-Communities (like Mario Kart 7?s) are coming to Miiverse
-Can be used to organise and hold tournaments
-First game to use them is Wii Fit U
-Nintendo is canvassing developers for anything else they’d like to see in the API
I already love Miiverse but with these new additions, it will take the application to the next level. I am certain Nintendo will announce and showcase these in the very near future. Stay tuned.
Here is an awesome Thief community candle teaser trailer for everyone to check out. The game was announced in last months Game Informer and is headed to next generation systems. This is here the very first glimpse of in-engine footage from Eidos-Montréal’s Thief 4. Look for a full trailer on April 2.
Here is the first, official Broken Age teaser trailer for everyone to check out. Broken Age tells the stories of a young boy and girl leading parallel lives. Formerly known as the Double Fine Adventure, it’s a crowdfunded point-and-click adventure game from Tim Schafer and Double Fine Productions. This game was came to fruition via kickstarter and it looks pretty intriguing.

This just in; Nintendo’s popular social network Miiverse is Heading to smartphones and web browsers in April/May. During a session at the Game Developers Conference earlier today, Miiverse producer Kiyoshi Mizuki revealed that Nintendo will make the social network available on smartphones and web browsers in April or May. The previously-promised 3DS support will arrive sometime in the future but will most likely be a little later than its smartphone counterpart.
I cannot wait to see Miiverse on my iPhone and welcome the app/social network with open arms. Once Miiverse hits, this may spring on some Wii U sales because non-Wii U owners will finally get to see what all the fuss is about.
More as it develops.
Nintendo has released an all new video showcasing the difference in time it will take to exit software and return to the Wii U Menu after the April update. The current time between menu’s is a little daunting and this update looks to resolve this issue.
Check out the video above and let me know what you guys think.
