Oh me, oh my. The glorious day has come at last. The day of the Nintendo Direct dedicated solely to the upcoming Super Smash Bros titles for the Wii U and 3DS. Even though Nach attempted to steal my idea (even though I hadn't shared it with him) I'm still here to dole out my predictions and listen to yours. Here's what … » 4/08/14 1:00pm 4/08/14 1:00pm

Rusty's Real Deal Baseball: The TAY Review

I'm not much of a sports fan. I don't have a favorite team in the NFL, NBA, NHL, or MLB. In fact the only sporting events I watch regularly are track and field meets, and that's probably due to the fact that I'm coaching the athletes involved. I also rarely play realistic sports series such as Madden or The Show. So… » 4/08/14 9:00am 4/08/14 9:00am

Not much exciting news this morning. Look! Crates! That big present on the right is a new type of container though, and I hope it shoots confetti all over like the party ball. Today's shot takes place in Skyward Sword's Skyloft stage. We do get to see some lovely ancient scripture on the side of the platform. Can… » 4/08/14 8:20am 4/08/14 8:20am

Smash Shot of the Day: Luigi Sucks

Well it's about darn time. Though I was hoping Luigi would be using his trusty vacuum in his standard move-set I can totally settle for the Poltergust 5000 only being used as a final smash. How will it be used? Here's my guess - Luigi will run around, vacuuming up opposing characters and shooting them into oblivion… » 3/31/14 5:10pm 3/31/14 5:10pm

Michael Bay's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Gets a Trailer

It looks pretty fun, and I must admit those new Turtle designs don't look as bad as I had thought when they're in motion. Seems like a decent TYBO (turn your brain off) kind of film. Hopefully this newest TMNT movie turns out better than the Transformers trilogy (there's a new one coming, right?). » 3/27/14 6:17pm 3/27/14 6:17pm
