Game Night Wrap-Up and Video

Sunday's Game Night was a great success.  We played some Brawl as planned and one participant (TheWon) was kind enough to capture the footage and edit it into this sweet video.  Go check it out and give his youtube account some love!

After Brawl, we even managed to sneak in some Monster Hunter Tri fun.  While playing with Maxi and Kathrine I even managed to meet my first HR 999 ever! It was pretty cool picking his brain about his many, many MH3 adventures.  So, "Tahquil," cheers to you, sir!

Site Chat, Podcast, and Game Night

Whew! That's a lot!

1. Our Sunday Site Chat will commence at the same time it usually does, 6pm EST.  I'm 40+ hours into the masterpiece that is Xenoblade Chronicles.  So, we can discuss the first 40 hours of that game... but not a minute more!! (NO SPOILERS! I'm lookin' at you, Mongoose! ... jk... no idea if he even has the game.)

2. Part 2 of the 2-part E3 wrap-up episode from the Negative World Podcast is online for your enjoyment.

Direct MP3 Link | NW Forum Link (go here to subscribe!)

3. Only a few hours left to decide on our July Game Night! 19 votes so far! Will yours decide the outcome??

Tonight I'll post a new poll deciding WHEN to have the Game Night take place.


See you in the chat!

XSEED reveals North American release date for The Last Story

Earlier today, XSEED announced via twitter that August 14th will be the official  release date for The Last Story.  Many retailers had several July place holder dates but XSEED themselves hadn't given an official date until now.

The first batch of games being sent out will have the art book but if you preorder now you will also get a CD  included as well.

So far, the retailers XSEED has confirmed will have the CD are, EBGames Canada, and GameStop.  Any others and you will have to talk with the retailer themselves to find out.  If you already preordered from the above retailers you will get the CD and artbook when you pick up the game come August 14th.

Site Chat Tonight!

The regular Wednesday Site Chat will commence at 8PM EST.  But, you knew that, didn't you?

See ya there!

Club Nintendo and Game Night

So, like most people who reach Club Nintendo Platinum Status, I save up my Club Nintendo coins after hitting the 600 coin threshold and carry them over to the next year.  That means that after the Status values reset recently I am free to add my build up of coins.

I started adding about an hour ago and I have already reached Platinum Status for 2013 - and I still have one game left over to register!

This year, if the finances go well, I plan to pick up a Wii U and a 3DS XL.  I'm gonna have Platinum Status locked up for 2014 practically by the end of 2012! Crazy!


Also, quick reminder that there is less than a week to vote (to the right) on our upcoming Game Night.  So far it is a fierce battle, especially between MH3 and MKWii.

Vote and be heard!

New details for Monster Hunter 4

There was Capcom's Summer Jam the other day and with it came a trailer which is a few posts down but today there is some details for Monster Hunter 4.

  • The game will not have water segments (water was one of MH3's big features)
  • There will be some new elements surrounding Felynes. You'll once again be able to take two Felynes out with you on hunts.
  • The game will have new weapons, but these are being kept secret for now. It will also have new armor designs.
  • The game's story with the greatest number of NPCs in series history.
  • Monsters will make use of the land formations.
  • Under certain conditions, you'll be able to grab on to the monsters. (I'm not sure if this means you'll be able to ride the monsters or just latch on to them for attacking.)
  • You'll be able to make use of hight differences in the stages to perform jump attacks.
  • The game will have a free camera.
  • Rather than a fixed base camp like past Monster Hunter games, your base camp will now move -- somewhat like a caravan.
 The magazine's information box lists the game as supporting 1 to 4 players, with support for local play (this may not necessarily mean no online play, although local play would be the norm for portable entries in the series). Ryozo Tsujimoto is listed as producer, with Kaname Fujioka listed as director.

This info will be in the upcoming Famitsu.
