Smash Brothers Leak Videos Pulled From Youtube


YouTube has apparently yanked the videos that surfaced early this morning of 3DS Smash.  The videos featured 2 new characters, in action, and looked pretty legit.  The original leak came from a poster on 4Chan claiming to have the final roster and was heavily scrutinized by the Smash community.  That same poster followed up with the videos today.  If you go look at /r/SmashBros right now, you should be able to get the lowdown on what characters were leaked and the arguments for real and fake, however given the video evidence at this point chances are this is the real deal.  I won’t post it here because I am disappointed in myself for looking.  The game comes out in Japan in less than 3 weeks (9/13) so we shouldn’t have to wait long to find out.




Madden 2015


To be completely honest, I have only owned one of these Madden games in the past.  I’m not sure if the game wasn’t that good, if the controls for the Wii just didn’t click right with me, or if I just really sucked at the game; but I did not enjoy the game very much… at all.

So why am I making a post about Madden 15?  It’s Madden Season!!!  To promote the new game EA has released a YouTube commercial video featuring Kevin Hart and Dave Franco in what can only be described as one of the best video game commercials since the original commercial for Super Smash Bros (N64).

Silent Hill Next

Recently revealed at Sony’s Gamescom’s press conference was the next game in the Silent Hill survival horror franchise, released as a demo titled P.T., short for playable teaser.

Now available on the Playstation 4 through the PSN Store, the hour plus long demo shows off what looks to be the current generations first survival horror game, controlled in the first person and displaying fantastic graphics and mind bending visual effects reminiscent of Eternal Darkness.

After watching Giant Bomb’s Patrick Klepek nearly mess himself playing through the teaser, I have to say I am eagerly awaiting this game, and have added one more reason to purchase a PS4. I don’t think I’ll be playing this one in the dark.



Meta Knight Confirmed for SSB4



Meta Knight,  the black (color, not race) version of Kirby who wears a mask and has a steampunk flying battleship with his face on the front while the rest of pop star revolves around delicious food, has been confirmed as playable for Super Smash Brothers for 3DS/Wii U.

Sakurai notes that his glide has been removed from his recovery special in this version, similar to Pit.  More pics available at the Smash Brothers website.



King’s Quest is coming back!


Activision has announced that the Sierra brand is making a comeback.  The first games published will be a new entry in the King’s Quest series and a 3rd Geometry Wars title.  This is hot on the heels of Telltale Games success with The Walking Dead, a critically acclaimed game with a modern spin on the point and click gameplay of Sierra and Lucasarts adventure titles.

I am personally excited for this being a huge fan of the series, and this opens the door for new entries in the sci-fi lambasting Space Quest series, which now has 20 years of new movies and shows to ridicule.  Hopefully we get more info on this soon.
