Today’s the big day for the Nintendo Switch.

Oh, the infamous Nintendo Switch. A console effectively putting the Wii U out of its misery. As I head to work, I’m eagerly awaiting what Nintendo’s newest console has in store for us tonight.

What to do in the meantime? Well, it only seems right to list the things Nintendo needs to show in order to score a home run with fans. Continue reading Nintendo Switch Announcements That Need to Happen

New Mighty No. 9 Gameplay Trailer

It’s ok Capcom. If you don’t want to give us a new Mega Man game, that’s cool. In meantime we have Mighty No.9. The spiritual successor’s new trailer shows off the Mega Man style action in all it’s glory. Mega Man’s creator Keiji Inafune and the team at Comcept really outdid themselves with this one. Now if only they could make their own Mega Man Legends style game…

The game is coming September 14th to just about ever console imaginable.

New Legend Of Zelda Wii U Trailer

A new trailer for The Legend of Zelda Wii U debuted during The Game Awards. The game looks ten times bigger than any previous Legend of Zelda game. While it looks great, the presentation in the video is not so much the same. While I love seeing Miyamoto, the fact that demo is like ten feet away from the camera doesn’t really help to see what going on. Still, more Legend of Zelda never bad.

The game is set to release in 2015.


Mario Maker Game Awards Trailer

Nintendo reveals new details on next years Mario Maker. They seem to be pulling out all the stops to differentiate themselves from all the custom made Mario games on the internet. This new trailer shows off the ability to change between several graphics styles like Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World and New Super Mario Bros.

Mario Maker comes out 2015.

Along that bit a news, Nintendo announced that the 3DS version of Smash Bros. has reached 2.8 million units sold worldwide.

It is going to be a great holiday season for Nintendo, with Super Smash Bros. on Wii releasing during the a key holiday season. Along with the gamecube controller adapter, which will be packaged in with the game for $99.99 and alone will retail for $19.99, it won’t be long before Nintendo starts printing money again.

Details on Smash Bros. Newest Character Lucina


If you have been paying attention to Sakuari’s Director’s Room Miiverse (as any Smash Bros. fan should) you know he post up some interesting little tidbits of information. Today’s was all about newcomer Lucina. According to Sakuari’s statements above she can officially be counted as a clone of Marth, very much in the same vein as Roy was in Super Smash Bros. Melee.


There are a few differences between the two, making her different enough to deserve a character slot. This officially quiets down all the silly and quite ridiculous notions that she was an alternate costume for Marth. Now I shall go back to Tumblr and Facebook to see more #poorchrom memes!

Renagade Recommends: Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition

  • 20140710-032517-12317434.jpg

Mexican Metroid … Yeah, I know but that’s the first thing comes to mind when describing this wonderful gem by Drinkbox Studios. Guacamelee is a wonderful homage to Metroidvania games of the past while adding it’s own little clever twist. You play as Juan, a humble, down on his luck farmer who has his girl taken by the demonic Carlos Calaca and then dies … but don’t worry! He is resurrected and reborn as an all powerful luchador, ready to stop Calaca’s evil plan.

Throw in some awesome fighting combos and wrestling moves to defeat your enemies and the best part … you get to turn into a chicken. What could make this game even better? The updated Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition! Adding in new costumes, extra levels, tougher enemies, new abilities and a bosses, I highly recommend this to those who haven’t had the chance to play Guacamelee before.

Available for Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360 and Wii U.
