Pokemon Rumours : Possible Direct in February?

Is this to good to be true?

If there was one thing the February Nintendo Direct left me wanting more of it was Pokémon. Fear not Pokémon fans we may be in luck, after a string of some cryptic tweets and some creative investigation work we may be in luck.

On February 14 @Junichi_Masuda (he is the composer, director, designer, producer, and programmer. On the Pokémon franchise.) Tweeted out a picture of a Weedle from Pokémon go. It seemed innocent enough, but then the super hardcore Pokémon fans did what they do best.

The Evidence

For the past few weeks people have been speculating, that the 8th gen of Pokémon will be titled King and Queen. A lot of the Pokémon community have dismissed this rumor until @Andrey_Arruda tweeted that same Weedle picture. He looked in to some of the numbers in the picture. First the CP was at 199, on the Pokédex that entry is SlowKing. Second the weight of the Pokémon is 4.16 kg, the Pokédex entry at 416 is Vespiquen. The picture also showed there were 226 candies, that was translated in to February 26. That date lines up with the date for the direct of Pokémon Sun and Moon back in 2016.

Could all of these coincidences be just that, coincidence. Or is there really something here only time will tell. What do you want to see from generation 8 Pokémon. Let us know in the comments down below. Also don’t forget to follow the twitter accounts from where I got this awesome information from.

Tetris 99 for Nintendo Switch

Tetris 99 game play

Can you survive

Tetris 99 is the newest installment of this iconic gaming franchise. Tetris has a way of leading the puzzle genre of gaming, from the first VR puzzle game to now the first Battle Royal puzzle game. This installment Tetris puts you up against 98 other players, for a total of 99 players in a room. Tetris 99 is only available to customers of the Nintendo Switch online service, and it’s free. I have been barley able to pull myself away from Tetris long enough to write this up. From the hour I have played I have not waited longer then 30 seconds to get in to a match, and I have not experienced any lag or slow down, I have also never been disconnected or booted out of a game. If you are a fan of puzzle games this is defiantly for you. Also this is a great perk for Nintendo Switch online customers.

Save the Ninja Clan Review

by Sodamancer

Save the Ninja Clan is one of the latest releases from recently prolific publisher, Sometimes You. They publish and port many games developed by other studios in addition to their own games. At the very least, they offer up a wide variety of experiences and Save the Ninja Clan is their take on the brutally difficult sub-genre of platformer games made famous by “I Wanna be the Guy” and “Super Meat Boy.”

What do I do?

You will die… a lot. That’s how these nails-hard platformers are designed and it’s no different here. The basic idea is that they present you with the tools necessary to overcome any obstacle from the beginning, but you need to learn to master the physics, controls, and timing to pull it all off. Every failure is a learning opportunity. You either recognize why or how you died and learn to do it better next time, or die repeatedly until you do figure it out. Thankfully, this means that you are responsible for your own deaths and they never feel cheap. Unfortunately, this also means that all of the punishment you have to endure has to be balanced out by fun or a sense of accomplishment.

Can I even progress, bro?

Save the Ninja Clan fails to provide you much of a sense of accomplishment. This is actually found primarily by the ability to access almost every level from the start of the game. You can boot the game up and choose whatever door it is that you want and this will lead to a new challenge. If you fail too much at any given level, you can just move to a different level and try it again. This sounds all well and good, but the game suffers for it.

Most games use their level progression as a clever tutorial. Every action, obstacle, and pit is a means of getting you familiar with the controls and physics, while also helping you to develop the skills necessary to overcome even greater obstacles further in the game. The lack of a feel of progression brought on by the ability to just choose a level at will makes it seem as though the devs sat back and just slapped together levels based on a dartboard.

“This level will feature…levers that…
fling you into…
whirling saw blades that are turning around…
moving spring boards….
above water”

Instead of introducing each of those elements to you in the earlier stages, and then slowly adding in one more element and a clever use or variation of that element.

Does it at least control well?

So, when it comes to platformers, especially those of the intentionally difficult variety, controls are essential. Save the Ninja Clan comes through with flying colors here. The jump is a little floaty at first, but you get used to it fairly quickly. Most importantly, the floaty jump is consistent. When you press the A button to jump, you know exactly how far in any given direction that you’re going to move, and you can adjust that with momentum. The biggest drawback of the control scheme is that you are restricted to only using the analog stick. While the Nintendo Switch might be among the worst Nintendo dpads in existence, even the direction buttons on the joycon would have been preferable to using the analog stick in a 2d platformer.

Is there anything interesting or new?

You can speed up or slow down the level’s speed. This is like a difficulty slider, as it just does exactly what it sounds like it does. Obviously, the faster you make it, the more you have to adjust your controls to overcome the speed difference. It actually starts you off at 115% instead of 100%, and 100% is the lowest that you can go.

Save the Ninja Clan – worth the journey?

I’d say that if you are into hard platformers, this is right up your alley. However, it is definitely more worth waiting for a sale than it is an immediate must buy. If you like your platformers to be well-designed and rich with clever level layouts and a sense of pride at your accomplishments, look elsewhere.

Nintendo at E3 2018: What I Would Like To See

Become a Quest 4 Pixels Patreon!

Nintendo E3 2018 why it’s going to flop

Why is it going to FLow? Nintendo at E3…

Nintendo at E3, Not Again

If you know me, you know I’m a die-hard Nintendo fan. I show my love and support for the big N with a half tattoo sleeve sporting Nintendo’s number one franchise, Mario. This is why it is uncomfortable for me to say this but, E3 2018 is going to be a bust for Nintendo. Nintendo’s big plans are to only Bring Smash Brothers 5 to the E3 show floor. Yes, it worked with Zelda. It also worked with Mario Odyssey. Not with Smash and here’s why.

Save Some Surprises For The Launch Day

With fighting games like Smash 5, it will be very hard to keep somethings a surprise for Nintendo at E3. Especially if it’s all you will be showing off. With Mario and Zelda, you could show little areas and keep people with just that experience. Nintendo will be having a pro-community Smash 5 tournament. How can you make hype with only showing two to three fighters you can’t.

Days Gone By

Gone are the days when we only had four-page spreads in Nintendo Power. Now everything about a game is spoiled as soon as it is announced and leaves nothing to find out on launch day. I guess I’m just old-fashioned in that way. My mother always told me “why buy the cow if you can get the milk for free”

I feel there will be nothing left for us to experience with Smash 5 on launch day after Nintendo E3 this year, and that’s a shame

Paper Cuts and 4K

godoflabo

What a crazy day in the video game world yesterday On 4/20. On one side you had ultra 4k graphics. The other side, you had people building cardboard pianos and robot suits. The great thing about this is that, no matter what end of the console war you land on, people were able to come together and celebrate video games. It was fun to see twitter filled with pictures of people opening there God of war PS4. And all the people diving into there kits of labor. 4/20 was a day that people could finally put preference aside to just enjoy the thing we all love, video games.
