And out of nowhere, right before releasing Fire Emblem Heroes, Nintendo also released Pokemon Duel. It was called Pokemon Co-master in Japan, and apparently didn’t even warrant Nintendo announcing it at all. I get that it’s The Pokemon Company releasing it, but they’re a subsidiary of Nintendo so… I dunno, seems a bit odd that it would get NO buzz.
I’m not really far into this yet but whatever. This is just an impressions post. I don’t think this kind of game really warrants a full-on review. Let’s go!
So I didn’t really inform myself all that much about this game before getting it. I saw some videos at E3 and screenshots and decided from those that I was slightly more excited for this than Final Fantasy 15. It just seemed more FF-like to me than what I had played of FF15 in both demos (both demos having slightly different gameplay, which means I have no idea what to expect of FF15 at this point). The stack thing seemed weird, but whatever, looked fun.
Read on and see if it’s good!
(this ended up being a much longer review than I was expecting… bolded some parts in the gameplay section for easier reading)
Alright so my second to last E3 post, and fully focused on Nintendo because not much public-facing stuff really happened otherwise.
So these are impressions I wrote as I was watching their 2 days of presentations. Slightly edited to make them somewhat postable.

This was always an idea people wanted from Pokemon, a fighting game where you play as the pokemon in what would look like the battles in the animu. And then it ended up being made by the people behind Tekken? Okay Nintendo, you have my attention.
Early looks at the game weren’t incredibly convincing, but as it came out in arcades and appeared in tournaments, it was clear there was something really unique about this game. I was pretty excited to check it out.
So read on and see if Pokken is the pokemon fighting game we always needed.
I’ve been playing Pokemon since the day the Red/Blue came out in America in 1998, but was a fan for about a year before just because of all the hype it was getting. To this day Red/Blue is the only game where I caught ‘em all legitimately (minus Mew, there were never any events that I knew of to get it here, so I gamesharked that one), and Silver/Gold is the last one I played all the way through to the end (I don’t think I beat the Elite 4 in any other up until Y). I’ve always been a fan of the series, and it’s one that just keeps refining its formula over time.
So this is the new generation of Pokemon, and the hype was pretty high. I’ll just make this a quick little post, since I think by now everyone knows if the game is good or bad anyways.
…So let’s go!
Well that took some time to come out. It’s been teased, and got release dates and delays, but we can finally listen to it.
If you don’t know about Powerglove, here’s a lowdown: They’re an awesome band that covers oldschool video game music, but with a great power metal style. They’re probably the best band in the video game music cover sub-genre. Not only do the cover the songs, but they take the tunes and they add in their own style and compositions, making the songs not only recognizable, but also making them their own thing at the same time.
This time, rather than doing video game music, they went through their childhood memories of watching cartoons and are doing covers of their theme songs, which is a fun idea. And for the first time they have a record label for their album, so you’ll be able to find it at local music stores, which is pretty awesome.
So read on and see if they’re as good with cartoon songs as they are with video game tunes!
March has some pretty cool releases, including one of the most awaited games in years.
There’s lots of good releases, a few that aren’t too great, but overall it seems like it should be a really good month. Let’s go and see what March has in store for us gamers, shall we?
As usual, the multi-platform releases are toghether, the exclusive releases are in their own sections, and japanese releases are marked accordingly.

Well, September is on the way, which usually signals the end of the usual summer drought. Starting now until… usually the end of November, we’ll be bombarded by games… If they weren’t delayed to next year, like it’s the popular thing to do in recent days.
So, is it really the end of the summer drought, or do we have to wait a bit more? Read on to see what’s coming out!
And don’t hesitate to comment and tell me if I missed something in my list!

No, this isn’t a review of Pokemon Platinum. Nor do I intend to ever review it. Why? Well because, by now, it’s useless to even think about reviewing a pokemon game. No, this post will be a my initial impressions of the game, what it has to offer, stuff like that.
Well, read on!
Another month is quickly passing by, and a new one is upcoming. I’m doing this earlier than I thought I would, but whatever!
Starting on this list I’ll also be including interesting import titles from Japan and Europe as well (for the importers out there).
The multi-platform games are at the bottom of the list.
If you see anything missing from the list, don’t hesitate to tell me in the comments and I’ll try to make this list as up-to-date as possible.
Read on after the link!
