I’ve been super busy lately with college and it’s put some of my videos on hold, but I wanted to make something talking about the demo for Smash on the 3DS. The game’s been out for a week in Japan and will drop on store shelves in America on October 3rd, Friday after next. Since the demos out, I figured I’d give it a try and tell you all what I thought. This WOULD have been a video, but I’m just too busy right now to devote that amount of time, so instead we’re going old school and writing it out like I used to.
The demo allows gives you a handful of characters (Mario, Pikachu, Link, Mega Man and Animal Crossing person…) and allows you to battle it out in a standard free for all battle or with your friends in an online game. I haven’t tied that yet, but I’ve spent a bit of time with the offline mode. Fore the most part, it’s Smash. It feels like Smash, it plays like Smash, and it’s surprisingly intuitive on the handheld console. The controls were pretty quick to figure out, and if you’ve had any experience playing Smash Bros before, you’ll quickly find your grove and start kicking butt once again. the game shows off a few new, interesting, and really powerful weapons and power ups, some of which have to be seen to be believed. My favorite, the Pokeball, makes a return this go around, only this time it includes more Pokemon from the 6th generation. Also, there’s the Masterball, which I used to unleash Entei on my opponents. Good stuff.
I don’t really have that many criticisms of the game so far, A. because it’s only a demo and B. because it’s really just another Smash game, only now you can play on the go. Perhaps the only downside that I can find to the characters is that I’ve noticed their move sets have been tweaked for this release. For example, Link is no longer a combo machine, instead focusing on more heavy strikes. He still retains his arsenal of gadgets and items, but his overall play style is different. Also, characters “B” attacks have been changed. If you’re a veteran of the series you’ll know what I’m talking about. Mario now has a “B” move where he uses that hose contraption from Super Mario Sunshine. I couldn’t remember what move it took the place of, but I did notice that the older move was gone and was disappointed in seeing the stream of water shoot from Marios back. Long story short, there are differences in how characters play this go around, so you may have to spend some time getting used to the changes.
Overall, Smash Bros on the 3DS looks like it’s shaping up to be another solid entry into the series. I’m looking forward to it’s release and can’t wait to get my hands on Charizard (Don’t judge me, G1 for life!) Despite the characters tweaks, it feels just as solid as it did on consoles, so if you had any doubts on the handheld version of the game being a butchered port, don’t. It’s as solid as anything Smash has put out since the N64.
I dont usually post things like this, but when I saw the trailer I couldnt help it. If you’re one of the people who grew up on pokemon like I did, this is absolutely awesome. Just think, you can finally have a game where punching pikachu in the face is the objective! Amazing. In other news, I have a new video in the works and it’s being edited now. It’s gonna take longer than usual because it’s a larger video file, but none the less will be out soon, I’m shooting by Thursday. Until then, enjoy this cool trailer.
My latest review! Feel free to watch it on YouTube HERE or on Facebok (more reliable) HERE. I hope you enjoy. Onto some other news, another of my videos got blocked worldwide on YouTube, this time it was the Triforce of Mediocrity
If you haven’t seen it yet, check it out on the Facebook page. It’s an experimental attempt at something new and I enjoyed doing it. YouTube on the other hand doesn’t want you to see it. I filed a dispute claim sighting “comment and criticism” as they are protected under fair use law. We’ll see how it goes. But nonetheless, should the YouTube page be taken down, understand that I will continue to make videos. They will go straight to the Facebook page for all 2 of you to watch. Anyway, go check out my stuff and have a pleasant tomorrow.
Okay so FINALLY I made this video. It only took like, donkey’s ears worth of time to do it. But you know, all good right? Well anyway, enjoy. The editing in this one is a bit off but I’m happy with it none-the-less. I captured the footage for it off an emulator so I can’t say this is from the real thing. However I did own this game in the past and played it all the time. So as always, here’s the link for the Facebook Page – https://www.facebook.com/BadMovieStudios Where you can watch all of my stuff without fear of it getting Copyright Blocked *cough, YouTube, cough*. And here’s the YouTube link – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FqsyM7iVA8Q&feature=youtu.be
I think the next few will be a trilogy about a certain flying turtle…
Yes, I have another review video for you beautiful people. 2 in a day has to be some kind of record. A Pathetic record, but a record none-the-less. You can watch it on YouTube HERE as well as the other video I did today HERE. And of course check out the Facebook page for more stuff. And as always, thanks for watching (don’t sue me V-Sauce).
Okay, it’s a day later than I promised, but you can watch my RE:R review right on the Facebook page Here or on YouTube Here Yeah I know I said I was gonna abandon the YouTube page, but screw it. I’ll just keep uploading my videos there for the sake of it. They might not stay there forever though (due to the BS copyright thing on YouTube) so if you want to watch my videos, the Facebook page will forever play host to them as well. Also, I know I never ask for it, but a Like, Share or Comment on anything you watch would be greatly appreciated. It’s always good to know what the people who watch my stuff think about it.
So, moving on from that, You can also watch my last review, Beast of the Bering Sea (2013) on YouTube as well. If you missed it before you can watch it Here. That you can also watch (along with every other video and written review I have done over on the Facebook page. I know I keep promoing the page but since that’s like my home base I kind of have to.
So what’s next? Well I’m not quite sure. I have a few extra days off from work this week, and I wont be going back until Wednesday it looks like. So I’ll shoot for my next video on Tuesday because I have other engagements until then. I’m not 100% certain on what the review will be, but I’m leaning towards another game review, this time Godzilla: Domination (2002) on the Game Boy Advanced. I just watched someone on YouTube by the name of GojiFan93 play it and it brought back memories. So that’s what you can probably look forward to.
Well other than that, I don’t particularly have much else to update on. I’m trying to maintain some ensemble of a schedule and release content as often as possible. so far so good, I’ve gotten 2 new videos out in the span of a week. Not too bad for having been gone for a while. Now the entire time that I’ve been writing this section, I’ve been trying to think of some sort of witty ending statement like I did last time (granted it wasn’t amazing but it was passable for a D level Monty Python sketch I assume). But since nothing is coming to me I will instead quote the multi-time NY Times best Selling Author, 3 time WWE Champion and Hardcore Legend Mick Foley, as he quoted the renown Christmas figure and pop-culture icon Frosty the Snowman, by saying “I’ll say goodbye, but don’t you cry. I’ll be back again, some day.”
