Editor’s note: Staff at Broken Joysticks will be sharing their top five games, or game related stories, from 2012 throughout the week. We’re continuing the feature with the top five from our editor, kashhoward.
For me, 2012 was a year with many games I anticipated releasing to great success, and some falling short due to various choices. Since I’m always playing fighters, it’s less common for me to purchase the newest games. While I had to omit some games that I never got to play from my list, here are my top five games of 2012.Posted in: Site News Tags: Bandai Namco, bioware, Capcom, Mass Effect 3, Nintendo, Pokemon, Resident Evil 6, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, thq, WWE 13
This review is mainly for all of you who somehow missed playing much of Pokemon Black and White 2, like me! I’ve only spent time with the first hour of the original, and I have to say, I like the sequel better. Why’s that? (more…)Posted In: Nintendo, Nintendo DS Tags: DS, Nintendo, Pokemon
Nintendo is adding a new Pokémon to the Black and White series. Named Keldeo, this is a Water-type Pokémon that cannot be caught in the game. Rather players will be able to bring their DS or 3DS systems and a copy of Pokémon Black or Pokmon White to their local EB Games and collect it there. Keldeo is noted to excel at super effective moves against seven different Pokémon types: Normal, Fire, Ice, Ground, Rock, Dark, and Steel. However, Keldeo becomes even better when transferred to either Pokémon Black 2 or Pokémon White 2.
Not only will trainers be able to transform Keldeo into a new form when transferred to the new game, but they will also be able to play out a scenario based on this event. When transferred, Keldeo learns ‘Secret Sword’ and transforms into Resolute Form, a new look that features a more porminent horn on it’s head. Because Keldeo can learn this fighting-type move at the very first stages of the sequel, it makes it a powerful ally to add to your team.Posted in: News, Nintendo Tags: Nintendo, Pokemon

Nintendo reaffirmed that owners of Pokemon Black & White 2 will benefit from playing the game on a 3DS, even though the game was designed for the original 3DS.
Details were sparse but players will be able to use the Dream Radar to locate hard to find & rare Pokemon via an augmented reality mini-game using the system’s rear camera. Who wouldn’t want to shoot a Lugia in the face with a yellow beam? Pokemon captured through Dream Radar will be transferable on to the Black & White conference. PokeDex 3D Pro is an updated version of the PokeDex 3D application that was released last.
No price was available for either game but as soon as we hear a price or release date we will bring it to you.Posted in: Nintendo Tags: 3ds, E-Shop, E3, Pokemon
