E3: What the heck is this? (Smash Files 36)

Posted by Sir Voltex the Blue , in Smash Files Jun 12 2014 · 162 views

E3 2014 - Amiibo  
That is "Amiibo"... or "amiibo". Does it matter? 
Nintendo, as announced a few days ago at E3, is finally following in the footsteps of Activision - releasing toys that can be used as characters in-game. To boot, the first series of figures are launching alongside Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and I can finally begin collecting Nintendo figures for mere display purposes (it's gonna be an awesome display though I swear).
 
Honestly for me, being able to use these things in various games is just a bonus. Speaking of using them in games, Nintendo has announced that Mario Kart 8 will be making use of the Amiibo figures as well. I can only imagine how the heck it'll work in that game though.
 
Below is an image of (I believe) all of the figures that will be included in the first series. The lack of Luigi here upsets me.

E3: THE POWER OF LIGHT COMPELS YOU! (Smash Files 35)

Posted by Sir Voltex the Blue , in Smash Files Jun 11 2014 · 118 views

E3 2014 - Palutena Profile
Posted Image
Species: Goddess
Series: Kid Icarus
First Appearance: Kid Icarus (NES, 1986)

Favourite Appearance: Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Wii, 2008)
Party: 1st 
Known For: Ruling Skyworld, being the goddess of Light, giving Pit the power of flight

Excitement Factor: 7/10 - Honestly, I would be more excited to play as here if it weren't for the fact that this has almost assuredly guaranteed that the Eggplant Wizard will not be added to the roster. And that, my friends, is the saddest thing of all (because turning opponents into eggplants as a final smash would be totally awesome).

Silly Marth! Palutena is no damsel that needs saving! 
 
Stay tuned tomorrow for E3 2014 Part 3!

THE BODY IS READY! (Smash Files 34)

Posted by Sir Voltex the Blue , in Smash Files Jun 10 2014 · 113 views

E3 2014 - Mii Profile
Posted Image
Species: Human?
Series: Any
First Appearance: Wii Sports (Wii, 2006)

Favourite Appearance: Mario Kart 8 (Wii U, 2014)
Party: 1st 
Known For: Being your Nintendo avatar, having three classes, showing off motion controls, playing sports, infiltrating Mario Kart

Excitement Factor: 10/10 - Like seriously, I've always been kinda 50/50 about adding Mii as a fighter (like how would it even work), but Sakurai has worked his magic once more. This is perfect and I can't wait to try all three classes out.
 
Posted Image
And suddenly the Miis realized that they were not, in fact, in Tron.
 
STAY TUNED! I'll have a couple more entries in this "E3 2014" mini series of Smash Files in the next few days (read: daily).

Roosterteeth is finally moving forward with a feature length film, and the bigger this is the better it gets!
 
In other news, they also started production on Day 5 this week (finally, they filmed the trailer back at RTX 2012), and hopefully we'll get to see something of that by the end of the year.

RETRO SALVATION (Smash Files 33)

Posted by Sir Voltex the Blue , in Smash Files May 29 2014 · 154 views

Behold this glorious beast:
 
Posted Image
 
That's right - it has been announced that Super Smash Bros. 4 will be playable using the almighty Gamecube controller! Let us all bow down and praise Lord Helix, for truly he has delivered us a wondrous thing. Also, if that picture is any indication, we will not only be able to use Gamecube controllers... but Nintendo might be releasing special Smash themed brand new Gamecube controllers as well! 
 
While it might not be the standard controller of the console (although if Nintendo truly loves us they will make it so with their next console), it is nice to see Nintendo acknowledging that the GCN controller is the best of their arsenal. 
 
The only way this announcement could have been better is if they had announced Agnes Oblige as a new character in the game alongside it.

Ike Profile
Posted Image
Species: Human
Series: Fire Emblem
First Appearance: Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance
 (GCN, 2005)
Favourite Appearance: Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Wii, 2008)

Party: 1st 
Known For: Something, being the first (only) Lord character in Fire Emblem not of royal blood...

Excitement Factor: 4/10 - I haven't played a Fire Emblem game before, but I was really hoping that the second representative of the series would be a newcomer from Awakening. Maybe we'll get three from the series this time? Who knows... probably not.

Big big excitement

At the very least, it is reassuring to know that I will be able to look forward to another spectacular soundtrack when the season is over; I loved the soundtrack for Volume 1.
 
Also...
 
Finally Weiss figurine
 
I haven't had the money to get the Ruby figure yet, but maybe I can convince someone to get me Weiss for my birthday or something. 
 
Anyway back to more important things!
