Why I’m not excited for the Smash Bros Wii U

Let me start off by saying as although this may be a rant, this does not mean I hate the Smash Bros. franchise. I love everything about Smash bros. as I was lucky enough to have grown up with the games. The original Smash Bros 64 was the very first game I have received for my N64. I spent countless hours with my friends playing the hell out of that game, and to this day it remains one of my favorite games. As a whole I’ve probably spent the most hours between all of the Smash games compared to any other game I have played. I love every single Smash game that has come out, and each has seemed to have improved in some way compared to its predecessor, but with the new Smash game for Wii U coming out I do not feel that this is the case.

Net neutrality: The game changer

Here is your chance….to become what you have spent years training in front of your television set….a hero, a protector of sorts…. a champion of the gaming community. A war is brooding, both ideological and legal. The end of net neutrality could blossom in a new and uncertain landscape for both consumers and gaming in general. Get involved. Save the Internet.

Will buy Mario Kart 8 for DLC

This may seem blasphemous for a Nintendo fan, such as myself, to say, but I was not going to buy Mario Kart 8. After playing seven different versions of Mario Kart, I’ve honestly had my fair share. I really didn’t want to pay to get more of the same. That is until downloadable content, or DLC, came into the picture.

Monster allies

So I have been playing around some role-playing games and some games have this style that you have to befriend, tame or capture a monster and have them as allies. While it’s a pretty thing to do as you can try to catch them all, they should add some other stuff to keep gamers interested collecting them. Here is a list that I hope they should add or fix if they ever make it into games again.
