Seems like the PS4 is becoming quite the haven for RPG’s and 2016 will be great to the system. The Nintendo 3DS will look to stay in high demand as there are a number of titles for the handheld on the list as well.
Can you imagine if the recently released Xenoblad Chronicles X featured Amiibo support? I didn’t know I wanted the game to support Nintendo’s popular figures but one glance at today’s image of the day has me reeling…. It would’ve been incredible if the Wii U exclusive supported Amiibo’s.
Check out the image and let me know what you think. Enjoy.
I thought some of you may enjoy my unboxing video that I shot of the Super Mario Maker ornament set that I picked up from Gamestop. Check out the video and if you like it, please consider leaving it a thumbs up. I purchased this sweet set of Super Mari Maker ornaments for $10.
The Pokken Tournament box art has been revealed so take a gander at the image above. This box art is for the Japanese version of the game but we expect the artwork to be very similar when it releases worldwide. Check it out and let us know if Pokken Tournament is something you will be interested in when it comes out.
If you’re planning on playing the critically acclaimed Super Mario Maker for your Wii U, then plan your time accordingly next week. The game will be undergoing maintenance on Monday, December 28, from 5:50 to 7:30 p.m. PT, when all network services will be unavailable. Players will still be able to play offline during the maintenance window as per the norm. We purchased Super Mario Maker for a Christmas gift this year and cannot wait to finally get our hands on it!
I know I tweeted this out but I just wanted to take a moment and wish everyone a Merry Christmas. I sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart for visiting the site and pray that we grow into something special for everyone. I can’t even imagine if I could do this one day for a living (report video game news and push out great content) but I am working hard behind the scenes to make it happen. If you’re on Youtube, check out my channel. If you’re active on Twitter, make sure you tweet at me and if you like watching people play games via Twitch, be sure to follow me on there as well. A HUGE thank you to everyone.
