Posted on May 2, 2018 by Jason Nason

After two months of disappointment, May is looking up for legendary Pokémon. Xerneas and Yveltal join the fun in May and will see code cards return to EB Games from May 4th thru May 27th.

Many people, myself included, missed out on legendaries from March and April and didn’t receive Palki and Dialga or Entei or Raikou. Despite being signed up for the Pokémon Club newsletter, neither a code nor any newsletter showed up in my email box.

Head to a participating EB Canada store from May 4–27, 2018, where you can get a code that will allow you to obtain Yveltal in Pokémon Ultra Sun or Pokémon Sun, or Xerneas in Pokémon Ultra Moon or Pokémon Moon.

For Yveltal in Pokémon Ultra Sun the legendary Pokémon will be level 100 and have the ability Dark Aura. It will have the held item Gold Bottle Cap and the moves Oblivion Wing, Dark Pulse, Heat Wave, and Tailwind. In Pokémon Sun it will be level 60, have the abiliby Dark Aura, and a moveset including Oblivion Wing, Dark Pulse, Phantom Force, and Psychic.

Xerneas in Pokémon Ultra Moon will be level 100, have the ability Fairy Aura, and the held item Gold Bottle Cap. It will have the moves Geomancy, Focus Blast, Grass Knot, and Moonblast.

New mythical Pokémon Zeraora announced for Ultra Sun and Moon

Posted on April 8, 2018 by Jason Nason

Nintendo revealed a brand new mythical Pokémon today – Zeraora.

This Pokémon creates a powerful magnetic field by emitting strong electric currents from the pads on its hands and feet. It can use this magnetic field to levitate and move through the air at high speed. Its max speed is said to be about the same as that of a lightning strike.

The bio for the Pokémon from the website states that unlike most Electric-type Pokémon, it doesn’t have an organ within its body that can produce electricity. However, it is able to gather and store electricity from outside sources, then use it as its own electric energy. When it uses massive amounts of electricity, its fur stands on end all over its body.

No details on how the Pokémon will be distributed, but hopefully it is via Nintendo Network and now via the Pokémon Newsletter. Despite having an account I never received a newsletter with download codes in March.

April legendary Pokémon distributed via Pokémon Trainer Club newsletter…again

Posted on April 3, 2018 by Jason Nason

Just like in March, codes for April’s legendary pair of Entei or Raikou will be available exclusively via the Pokémon Trainer Club newsletter arriving in April.

I missed the deadline last month to sign up for an account, though a lot of people have complained that even though they had signed up they never got the newsletter. You can sign up for one for free here, though it appears you’ll need to sign up multiple times with multiple emails if you’re like me and have copies of Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun, AND Ultra Moon.

Be sure to register for the Pokémon Trainer Club by April 9th so you can add these powerful Pokémon to your game.

Entei will be level 100 in Pokémon Ultra Sun and have the ability Pressure. The Pokémon will also be holding a Gold Bottle Cap. It’s moveset are Sacred Fire, Stone Edge, Iron Head, and Flame Charge.

At level 60 in Pokémon Sun Entei has the ability Pressure and the moveset Stomp, Bite, Swagger, and Lava Plume.

A level 100 Raikou is redeemable in Pokémon Ultra Moon with the ability Pressure. Like in Ultra Sun it is holding a Gold Bottle Cap. It’s moveset is Thunderbolt, Volt Switch, Extrasensory, and Calm Mind. At level 60 in Moon Raikou has the ability Pressure and the moveset Reflect, Crunch, Thunder Fang, and Discharge.

Some other regions don’t have to jump through hoops to get these legendary Pokémon. In the UK and Australia for example, they are being distributed via regular Nintendo Network download.

The Alliance Alive | REVIEW

Posted on March 28, 2018 by Jason Nason

I had a lot of trouble getting into The Alliance Alive, which by all means has all of the elements of a great RPG.  The trouble with the game doesn’t come from any issues with the game itself, but comes with the presentation. While all of the elements are there, and the game is a solid title to be sure, when you stack it up and compare it with similar titles, The Alliance Alive feels very underwhelming.

Underwhelming – that’s how I felt while playing through the game, which I’ll admit I still have a ways to go. I must have been spoiled with Atlus’ previous RPG entry and its nearly fully voiced dialogue because The Alliance Alive doesn’t have any. Like an old fashioned RPG before there was the capability or budget to have voice actors speaking for the characters in a game, there aren’t any voices in the game.

Another element which left me feeling underwhelmed was the music in the game. Overall much of the music was very soft and relaxing. It wasn’t uncommon for the music, which felt muted and passive, to remain unchanged into and out of a battle. The expected energetic music you would associate with a role-playing battle wasn’t there much of the time, mostly for battles on the world map. Battles should be events but they didn’t feel very eventful much of the time.

I know, it sounds like I’m harping on the game already. It’s amazing how much you take the audio aspect of a game for granted until it misses the mark.

Despite the lackluster sound design in the game, The Alliance Alive is a pretty deep game once you get yourself into it.

The way your characters progress in The Alliance Alive is different than I’m used to in most traditional RPGs. The characters don’t have levels in the traditional sense to level up so as you battle through the game you don’t really earn XP. Rather as you play, your stats will grow organically and will gradually increase after battles. Your HP or SP may rise a little bit after some battles.

Since you don’t earn experience in battle and level up stats, your strength and defense are reliant on the equipment you have equipped.

What you do earn after battles is talent points, which you can spend to upgrade your talents. The game has an interesting Arts & Spells and Talents system. As you attack with weapons equipped to your characters you will randomly “awaken” new abilities (or arts) for those weapons. The more advanced abilities you learn will cost you SP to use, but you can use some of the talent points to advance your skillset with a specific weapon. Doing so will lower the SP cost to use those abilities.

Another interesting deviation from tradition is the usage of items. Unlike traditional RPGs where you have a deep pocket of items to use in battle, in order to use items in The Alliance Alive you’ll need to equip them first outside of battle. That means you’ll have one or two items per character to use in battle. Of course this means you’ll have to unequip a potentially useful item. It’s an interesting balance and adds a level of strategy to battles.

Battles themselves are also pretty interesting.

Prior to battles you can set the formation of your team, with characters up front or at the back. As you might expect you’ll do more damage from the front lines but you’ll also take more of a pounding. Conversely, your attacks won’t pack as much of an impact from the back row, but you’ll also take less damage. So it pays to station characters which use ranged attacks or magic a little further back.

Now it feels like a bit of a handicap that are limited to the number of items which you can use in a battle, but something that is pretty interesting is that you will actually recharge your SP points during battle. Added to that, if one of your characters is KO’d during battle, you won’t need a special “revive” item to pick them back up. Any normal healing spell or item will do. Of course if all of your characters are KO’d that will end the battle. BUT, you should still try not to have a character knocked out. If one is knocked out they will be penalized with a reduced maximum HP until you rest at an Inn.

Battles in the game aren’t random and are instigated with monsters which roam around the dungeons and overworld. When the spot you they will change colour and will chase you. If you manage to garner the attention of more than one monster you’ll initiate a battle chain in which you’ll fight the monsters in succession. Doing so may net you a bit of bonus TP.

The Alliance Alive also has a variety if vehicles for you to use on the world map, which is a fun element to the game.

The look of the game is somewhat reminiscent of what I remember of the look of Final Fantasy IX. Not quite chibi characters but very close to it. The style of the characters and the environments as a whole have the same simple look. Dungeons are camera locked but in the overworld you van rotate the camera around. It’s too bad there’s no 3D on the world map.

There is very little 3D in the game. The 3D is limited to the menus when you have your character model displayed on the top screen and during the zoomed out view in towns, which you’ll only see if you wait for the game to pull the camera back.

I’ve always said that you should review a game based on its merits alone and not as a comparison to other games. With that in mind The Alliance Alive is a good RPG. While the audio is a bit lacking, the game is fun to play.

GameCube Classic Luigi’s Mansion Being Remade For 3DS

Posted on March 15, 2018 by Rae Michelle Richards

Revealed during last week’s Nintendo Direct presentation, the classic GameCube launch title Luigi’s Mansion is being remade for the Nintendo 3DS. It has been 17 years since Mario’s brother strapped on the Poltergust 3000 vacuum cleaner in a bid to clean up the mansion of spirits in order to free Mario.

This remake will feature the same levels and gameplay that made the original such an odd but delightful departure from the series formula. It also has some really cool 90s era Nintendo throwbacks like the “Game Boy Horror” used by Professor E-Gad resembling the design of the Gameboy Color, right down to the font.

Luigi’s Mansion should feel right at home using the parallax 3D effect of the Nintendo 3DS given that the original had support for older stereoscopic 3D technology and was even tested on an official Nintendo branded LCD screen that never saw an official commercial release. As such the stereoscopic 3D effect can only be enabled by the use of hacking devices like the GameShark as it was never intended to be used by the end user.

It is not yet known if an external developer is handling the GameCube to 3DS transition for the game. In 2013 Next Level Games released a sequel to the 2001 title on the 3DS titled Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon.


Super Smash Bros. coming to Nintendo Switch in 2018

Posted on March 8, 2018 by Jason Nason

Nintendo released a ton of new information during their latest Nintendo Direct, which we’ll break down more soon. The big suprise reveal is that a Super Smash Bros. game is in the works for Nintendo’s latest console.

The reveal came in the form of a trailer at the end of the presentation, which was a surprise because it was previously stated that the Wii U / 3DS games in 2014 would be the last in the series. But who believed that?

The teaser trailer doesn’t really give any details on if the game is brand new or a remake of the Wii U title, but it’s safe to say that it will likely be a brand new entry in the beloved series. I’m personally excited for the lead up to the game as the highlight of the last game was the release of countless character reveal trailers in the months leading up to the release of the games.

Enjoy the trailer below.

During its latest Nintendo Direct presentation, Nintendo announced that the Super Smash Bros. franchise is coming to Nintendo Switch this year. The video also showcased more than a dozen upcoming games for both the Nintendo Switch system and the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, with many of the featured games coming from third-party developers, including SQUARE ENIX, Capcom, Grasshopper Manufacture, From Software and Ubisoft.

“Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS are being propelled through 2018 with an energized lineup of games of all kinds,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “These games contain a solid mix of first-party franchises starring some of Nintendo’s most recognizable characters, acclaimed third-party titles and promising indies.”

We’ll go into a more in depth look at some of these games in the near future, but for now check out some of the details of the news in Nintendo’s release below. You can also watch the Nintendo Direct video in its entirety below.
