Animal Crossing: New Leaf (3DS)

Animal Crossing: New Leaf came out on June 9th in America. This is the 4th Animal Crossing game to come to America. Animal Crossing: New Leaf is a virtual life game published by Nintendo.

Like previous Animal Crossing games, you are new villager moving into a town filled with human-like animals and you live a new life. There is a major difference in New Leaf. You are the new mayor of the town you move in. Instead of being enslaved by the fat raccoon, Tom Nook, at the beginning, and he made you go through the tutorial of the game. In New Leaf the tutorial is optional, you just have to talk to Isabella(your secretary) if you want to go through the tutorial. You should, you get free stuff and a new fruit.

Your character is taller and can wear different pants, skirts, or dresses, instead of 1 outfit like in the previous Animal Crossing games. You can hang stuff on the walls of your house, and you can even decorate how your house looks on the outside.

With your new role as mayor, you can set up town projects and 1 ordinance. Town projects is a new way to customize your town. You can build new bridges, street lamps, benches, and many other random buildings. An ordinance changes how your town behaves, like Night Owl where every business and villager are up later.

For the first couple of days in the game, you feel limited, and more than you should. If you don’t want to time travel in the game, you will get bored of this game in the beginning. Well… That’s my only complaint of the game….

All of these new changes to the game is a huge welcome to the series. If you were getting tired of Animal Crossing ports on every system, this is a sequel not a port. If you are looking for a new game for the 3DS, get this. This is one of the best games for the 3DS.

I recommend this game to anybody that wants more fun in their life.

Sonic: Lost Worlds Trailer

The trailer for the new Sonic game has been released recently. Sonic: Lost Worlds is coming out for Wii U and 3DS only because there is some sort of agreement between Nintendo and Sega for Sonic exclusives.

This new game looks really good. The latest games from Sonic are good and all but there is something I didn’t like about them. Sonic Lost Worlds looks like I will really enjoy it.

People have been saying this game looks like Mario Galaxy or Sonic Xtream. I think it looks like a lot more polished Sonic Xtream. Maybe that’s where the name came from. Since Sonic Xtream was never released, maybe Sonic: Lost Worlds are “lost worlds” from Sonic Xtream. It’s just thought.

Lego City Undercover and Recording Console Gamplay

In the past week, I got Lego City Undercover and a capture card. Those 2 are a great combination. So, this week I’m showing a quality test video. I still need to work on the audio. Don’t worry, I’ll make a more “professional” video soon.

If want to share any criticism or tips on the video, feel free.

Miiverse on Web Browser

Nintendo had finally launched Miiverse on web browsers. This means you can get Miiverse on your computers, cell phones, tablets, or anything that has a web browser; this includes the 3DS. You can view posts, “yeah” posts, and leave comments. You cannot post, Private message(PM), and add friends. I do find it funny that you can report people instead. You can visit Miiverse at Miiverse.Nintendo.Net

I don’t like the current state it is in, you can’t really socialize as much. Yes you can add comments to posts, but that’s about it. They don’t have to add posting, but I would like to have messaging. If you are an artist on Miiverse, you can now go to the post with the art, copy it, then share it on any site. This also works with screen-shots. 

That’s my favorite part, because I can now show off my BIG MASS OF CTHULHU!

No Nintendo Press Conference at E3 2013

Nintendo recently announced they they will not have a big Press Conference at E3 this year. They will hold smaller events, that would deliver different information targeted to different audiences. They confirmed 2 different events, a media presentation and a partner presentation.

This is a big let down for me… I always looked forwarded to Nintendo’s press conference, with announcing big games, and first looks. I kinda understand why they are doing this, they want to focus on 1 subject, instead of mixing information to the investors and fans. They also have successful Nintendo Directs that delivers news year around.

Hopefully the Media presentation is almost as big.

Thanks for reading.

EarthBound and Legend of Zelda: a Link to the Past 2

There was a new Nintendo Direct yesterday. They gave some new details to games that are coming out soon, like they always do. Nintendo always has 1 or 2 major announcements on these shows. This one didn’t disappoint.

Earthbound is finally coming to the American Virtual Console.This has been one of the most requested games to be released on American Virtual Console, Nintendo has finally listened to the fans via Miiverse. Thank You, Miiverse Miis. EarthBound will be released later this year for the American and European Wii U virtual Console.

Everybody’s favorite Nintendo announcements, A NEW ZELDA GAME! Nintendo has announced a squeal to the Classic SNES game, Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past. Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past 2 will be in same world from A Link to The Past, but it will have a new original story and dungeons. It will have a top down look, like in the original, but in 3D, to add hight and depth for puzzles. There is a Video on the 3DS e-Shop to see how the 3D visuals work. Legend of Zelda: a Link to the Past 2 will be released for 3DS by this holiday season.

What Miiverse REALLY is?

Nintendo has this social network on The Wii U called “Miiverse“. Each game/app has its own page called a Community. Gamers are suppose to help each other or talk about the game/app on these communities. Like most social networks, Miiverse has some problems and some good things about it.

When you make a post on Miiverse, instead of liking the post, people can “Yeah” the posts. There isn’t much of a difference, but a “yeah” is more about agreeing with the post. Some people loves these “yeahs”, it’s like they feed off of “yeahs”. These people are called “Yeah beggars” .The number of “yeahs” you get doesn’t mean anything, you don’t get any prize or get featured anywhere. It gets annoying when you see a post like “yeah if you are cool” on every community page. It also gets annoying when you see “is this game good” every third post. (I am guilty of this) If you want to know if a game is good, look up a review or just watch the community to see what people are saying about it.

With all the problems Miiverse has, it’s still is a great service. People actually use it to help each out. When people ask a question, they get multiple comments helping them. There are a lot of funny people on Miiverse, I usually laugh out loud when I read some of the posts on the communities. But what I think the best part of Miiverse, is the fan art. People can draw on their posts if they want to. They come up with these amazing pieces of art. Remember everyone can draw but you!

If you want to friend me on Miiverse, My Nintendo ID is SuperSmashKart. Just say you read my blog. 😀

Thank you for reading.
