Super Smash Bros.: Invasion of the Mii Fighters

Mii Fighters | Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS has been out for two weeks and it is dangerously addicting. I have spent way too much time over the past two weeks playing, customizing and unlocking things. I finally decided to take a break from playing to talk about one of my favorite features of the game: The Mii fighters.

Nintendo is really trying to push and encourage users to make Miis by incorporating…

Super Mario Bros. 1993 Movie Coming to Blu-ray

Super Mario Bros. 1993 Movie Coming to Blu-ray

Super Mario Bros Movie - Blu-ray Cover

Do you remember the Super Mario Bros. movie? If you’re under a certain age, you probably didn’t even know such a thing existed. If you’re over a certain age, you’ll know that’s a movie that takes the barest outline of the Mario franchise, and puts it into a dark, dystopian storyline. Opinions on the movie vary, but no one claims that it has anything to do with the Mariofranchise. The movie…

Final Fantasy XIV Heavensward

Yesterday, Square Enix announced the first expansion to their critically acclaimed MMO Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. The expansion will be called Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward and they say it will be released in early Spring 2015. A trailer has been released as well, which looks pretty impressive.

The expansion will also include several additions to the game, including a fourth city-state known as The Holy See of Ishgard. Several massive new areas and challenging new dungeons will be added as well, along with new high-end raids, new gear and recipes, several new jobs, airships, and new primals. Finally, a new playable race will be added as well, which are hinted to be the Viangaa.

The expansion will take place primarily in Ishgard, and focus on the Dragonsong War, a bloody thousand year war between Ishgard and Dravinia. It will also deal with the Wyrmking versus Thordan and his Knights Twelve.

Ishgard will be governed by an archbishop and controlled by four noble houses, the city will be physically divided to separate the privileged from the commoners. The city’s fields will include previously inaccessible regions beyond the Coerthas Highlands, such as Dravinia and other beast tribe-ruled domains. It will be made up of treacherous mountains and floating land masses above and beyond a sea of clouds.

Finally, the level cap will be increased from 50 to 60.

Do any of you play Final Fantasy XIV? What do you guys think of this? Are you excited? Let us know in the comments!

Smashing Saturdays! Week 50: October 14-17, 2014

Smashing Saturdays! Week 50: October 14-17, 2014

Week 50 of Smashing Saturdays was more of a mixed bag. It started really strong, faltered a bit through the middle, and then offered an interesting reveal or two. It even added a couple more “secret” fighters for those of you who haven’t bought the 3DS version yet. Yes, I’m sure there are still some holdouts out there who want to wait for the Wii U version to bite. I only hope Sakurai has a…
