The First Look At Super Smash Bros for Wii U / 3DS

Posted on June 11, 2013 by Rae Michelle Richards

We’ve waited two years to get our first glimpse at Super Smash Bros for the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. Wait no longer because during their E3 Direct live-stream Nintendo showed off not one but two trailers featuring gameplay from both versions.

We don’t know about any content difference between the two games but the 3DS version has a very distinct cell shaded style, while the Wii U version looks like Super Smash Bros Brawl on current-generation HD steroids. In terms of gameplay, it’s pretty similar to previous games in the franchise – at least from the four or so minutes they broadcast. No new items or game changing mechanics, like Brawl’s  final smashes, were shown. We also don’t know how the two versions will connect together, either.

Oh, you want to know about new characters? Joining the fisticuffs are an avatar from the Animal Crossing series and a certain beloved CapCom character who has seen some better days. No, we won’t spoil it – just watch the trailers below.Read More

Archie Comics’ Megaman Is Great

Posted on December 2, 2012 by Les Major

When I bought my first Megaman comics by Archie I was concerned since in most comic stores I was lead to a specific kids section. It made me think the comics would be pretty basic, but that’s actually not true. From the inner conflict Megaman faces during his first battles taking down rampaging robot masters to a convention held hostage by an anti-robot protest group the comics are quite involving!

In 2013 Megaman will be meeting up with Sonic in a 12-part cross over. Written by Ian Flynn it is still unclear how the characters will meet, or on what grounds the story will develop. Ian is very excited about the project and definitely wants to make the most out of this opportunity. So if you’re a Sonic or Megaman fan, keep a look out for it. In the meantime Archie Comics has back issues as well as graphic novels if you want to get caught up on either hero.
