[Interview] Miketendo64 Twitter Based AMA with 13AM Games’ Alex Rushdy Recap


Since we love conducting interviews, and like to give back to our fans whenever we can and get them involved with our antics whenever possible, we wanted to find a way to merge all of those things together, and we did.

We decided we’d reach out to some devs to see if they would be up for doing some Twitter based AMAs (Ask Me Anything) and one particular 13AM Games dev was all too happy to take us up on our AMA invite and while the AMA is now well and truly over, here’s some of the very best highlights of our AMA with Alex Rushdy:  Continue reading [Interview] Miketendo64 Twitter Based AMA with 13AM Games’ Alex Rushdy Recap

[Event] Making Waves with Pokémon GO as the Water Festival Event Gets Underway


When you live in-land with no body of water in close proximity, it can be rather hard to encounter some Water-type Pokémon, only thanks to a new Pokémon GO event, all of that is about to change.

 

The event is the Water Festival, and because the likes of encountering Magikarp, Squirtle, Totadile and plenty of other Water-types, was hard enough already, now it’s not as all of them will be appearing more often and there’s also a new hat for your avatar to where as well. But because we don’t want to spoil what the hat is just yet, you can read about it here, as part of the official announcement.

Tetris Attack Review


Wizard Dojo looks at one of the best puzzle games ever.

Wizard Dojo

In 1995, Nintendo released Panel De Pon on the Super Famicom. It was something akin to an inverse Tetris. A falling-block puzzle game where the blocks ascended from the bottom of the screen, as opposed to falling from the top. In 1996, Panel De Pon was brought stateside under the name Tetris Attack, swapping out the original Panel De Pon characters with a motif based on Yoshi’s Island. The game was later re-released on the Nintendo 64 with yet another new title, Pokemon Puzzle League, using characters and visuals from the Pokemon anime. While Pokemon Puzzle League is the version that has seen subsequent releases through Nintendo’s downloadable services, the Yoshi’s Island aesthetic makes Tetris Attack the most endearing version of this overlooked gem of a puzzler.

As stated, despite having the name Tetris in its title, Tetris Attack works as a reversed version of the falling-block puzzle genre made…

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia Limited Edition Bundle is Revealed for Europe and North America


On the 19th of May, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia is coming to the Nintendo 3DS, but for the diehard Fire Emblem fans who are happy to splurge the cash on their favourite series, today a Limited Edition bundle has been revealed for both North America and Europe.

A Limited Edition bundle that consists of the game, (obviously) an artbook, a double-sided titlesheet, a soundtrack selection CD entitled “Sounds of Echoes,” and metal pixel pin badges of Alm, Celica and Marth. At least that’s what the North American version of the bundle consists of, the European one includes all of the mentioned items, as well as the Alm and Celica amiibo and if you think that’s all the Fire Emblem Echoes related news you’re poorly mistaken.

Thanks to the news article in which news of the bundle comes from, it has been reconfirmed the Corrin amiibo is still on its way, as well as a few other things, including new videos for us to watch, and we’ve got it all right here:

The fate of Valentia is in your hands in Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, coming to Nintendo 3DS family systems on May 19th

21st March, 2017 – When civil war threatens to bring destruction to the realm, long-lost childhood friends with secret pasts must gather forces, reunite, and bring peace to the continent when Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia launches on Nintendo 3DS family systems on 19th May. Remade, remastered, and releasing outside of Japan for the first time, this reimagining of Fire Emblem Gaiden provides European players with a brand new Fire Emblem adventure with a revered past.

This game is the latest in the long-running and growing strategy RPG series, and comes hot on the heels of the recently released free-to-start title Fire Emblem Heroes on smart devices. Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia will see players take control of the two separate armies of Alm and Celica as their differing quests attempt to achieve the unified goal of bringing peace to the land of Valentia. Battles in the Fire Emblem series see players take their small force of recruited soldiers against increasingly powerful armies in turn-based battles that require careful tactical planning, as mistakes or failed attacks will see units become exposed and vulnerable to enemy attack.

Should a unit be cut down in the midst of battle in Fire Emblem’s traditional Classic Mode, they’ll either become too injured to ever return to the battlefield, or will be fatally wounded. In Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, players can use Mila’s Turnwheel to rewind the player’s last few turns, giving them a chance to reverse tactical errors and reconsider their next strategic move. Should players not wish defeat to be permanent, they can play through the game in Casual Mode, which allows fallen allies to be revived after each battle, letting players progress through the story more comfortably.

Players will also be able to enjoy expanded story content to propel them further into the intertwining adventures of Alm and Celica, including new recruitable heroes, new villains to defeat, and a new prologue that explores the previously hidden history of Alm and Celica. For the first time in the Fire Emblem series, all character dialogue for main story scenes is fully voiced in English, while beautifully animated cut-scenes from movie animators Studio Khara will allow budding tacticians to soak in the story.

In another first for the Fire Emblem series, Alm and Celica can freely explore caves and dungeons in three dimensions, allowing them to see enemies before battle – players can gain a vital advantage by attacking enemies in these areas, causing them to begin the conflict with reduced health. Inside each dungeon is a Mila’s Statue, which can be used to promote characters and change their class, while some contain Sacred Springs, which can grant heroes with permanent stat increases.

When it launches on 19th May, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia will be available as a solus game and special Limited Edition*, featuring the game, an artbook, metal pixel pin badges of Alm, Celica, and Marth, a reversible title sheet, the “Sounds of Echoes” soundtrack selection CD, and the Alm and Celica amiibo figures. When used, these amiibo will each activate their own exclusive dungeon, allowing heroes to earn items and level up their armies further by defeating bosses. Budding strategists can see the contents of the Limited Edition in the trailer below:

https://youtu.be/vCUvqrBHPnw

By selecting Mila’s Turnwheel from the menu on the overworld map, players will also be able to activate their Alm and Celica amiibo (sold separately or as part of the Limited Edition) to use in battle. During combat, players can sacrifice a portion of Alm or Celica’s health in order to summon a computer-controlled Illusory Hero, which will act as a temporary ally for a single turn. As Alm and Celica get stronger, their stats can be saved to their respective amiibo, allowing their Phantom Helper to grow in strength alongside them. In addition, amiibo (sold separately) of Marth, Roy, Ike, Robin, Lucina, and even the upcoming Corrin amiibo can be used to summon an Illusory Hero of that character, allowing players to seek assistance from spectral visages. All other currently available amiibo are also compatible, and will summon an additional monster to the battleground to assist players on the battlefield, proving some much needed help in case of a strategic emergency.

The fate of a continent is in your hands when Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia releases across Europe on 19th May for Nintendo 3DS family systems. On the same day, a Limited Edition containing the game, an artbook, metal pixel pin badges of Alm, Celica, and Marth, a double-sided titlesheet, the “Sounds of Echoes” soundtrack selection CD, and Alm and Celica amiibo will be released.

More on Super Mario Run’s Version 2.0.0 Update


With Super Mario Run’s new update and android release slated for release two days from now, even more details regarding the update has come to light!

First up, get ready to rebuild your Kingdom as new items are coming to the shop, which includes Blue Yoshi’s House. Naturally Blue Yoshi’s House will unlock Blue Yoshi as a playable character, but certain requirements will need to be met in order to purchase the house in the first place.

But the biggest reveal is something the free players of Super Mario Run will enjoy most. Once the update rolls out, a Challenge from Bowser will be available and it allows free players to take on World 1-4 without having to pay for the full game and provided they beat it, additional levels will be added to Toad Rally, as well as the means to earn both Green and Blue Toads. (Prior to the update, free players could only get Red Toads.)

While that covers everything from today’s Super Mario Run news, should any more details regarding the update come to light, you can expect to read about them all right here and if there’s not, you can expect our full coverage of the update on Thursday. So until then, keep on gaming!
