ESPN Will Broadcast Super Smash Bros Events

ESPN-Red-Logo-large

Don’t look now but the eSports scene is about to get some HUGE attention as ESPN has agreed to broadcast Super Smash Bros events on their network. The popular sports channel showed DOTA 2 championships in the past so it will be exciting to see how they handle Nintendo’s Super Smash series. Super Smash Bros will join the likes of League of Legends, Dota 2, and Hearthstone.

Awesome stuff!

The Legend Of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD Digitally Goes For $50

62610-the-legend-of-zelda-twilight-princess-hd

It appears as though the upcoming digital release for The Legend Of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD will run $50. That’s a cool 10 bucks off the retail version but if you decide to purchase the game at you local game store, you will likely pick up the special edition that comes packaged with the Wolf Link Amiibo. This pricing is based on the game’s listing on Amazon, which is selling digital codes for $49.99.

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD launches on March 4 for Wii U. I have mine preordered.

THE DIVISION GRAPHICS COMPARISON – 2013 VS NOW VIDEO

Here is an interesting video showcasing the graphical comparison for the upcoming video game The Division. The video displays the differences between the 2013 build of the game and the near final version. I have to say that the 2013 build is FAR superior than the most recent build so it will be interesting to see how things pan out when the game is released. The 2013 build is insanely detailed and while the recent build is no slouch, there is a clear difference. I wonder how the PS4 version will look when compared with everything else.

Nintendo Deleting Some Super Mario Maker Courses

2773294-super_mario_maker_-_mario_artwork_02

It looks as though Nintendo has been deleting Super Mario Maker courses without telling their creators. Apparently, courses with “low popularity” are being removed and are unable to be uploaded again. I have been memorized by just how easy it is for gamers to create levels for the game as my kids have already loved making and creating a number of their own worlds.

Have any of your levels been taken down?

How We Would Roll Out Nintendo’s NX System

Nintendo-NX-1

We are going to play a little game… Let’s just say that I have become the president of Nintendo and have been tasked with rolling out the next Nintendo system, the Nintendo NX. As we all know, Nintendo will be showcasing the new system sometime this year and they need to get this one right. Although we truly LOVE the Wii U (it’s an incredible system), commercially it has been a MAJOR flop for the company. It’s no secret and it looks as though Nintendo is set to change gears and focus on their upcoming project, NX. They could pretend that they will “continue to support” the Wii U, but we all know the system (and possibly the 3DS) is on life support. Hype has been building for Nintendo’s upcoming system and I have decided to share exactly how I would roll things out this year for the project.

So, sit back, relax and enjoy my little story.

If you haven’t noticed, Bayonetta 2 has become quite hard to find for Wii U. The game has recently skyrocketed in terms of value and people have taken to eBay to sell their copies off. Well my friends, good news (sort of)… Bayonetta 2 will be receiving a reprint and is headed to store shelves next month. The only downfall is that the game will not come packaged with the original title as it once was.

Still good news for fans who have yet to play the amazing Wii U exclusive. Bayonetta 2 will retail for $29.99.
