I know what you are asking yourself "really didn't we just do this at E3?". The answer is yes, we did. But Nintendo is really banking on the new Smash Bros game to sell consoles, since they are going through a slump right now. With no new Triple A games coming out for the next few months, console sales have been dipping. There are games coming out, but its mostly indie titles that have been released on every other platform years ago.
So Smash Direct. What is this about? Well I am gonna break it down for you right here.
-Simon Belmont\Richter Belmont - This is the biggest announcement for me. I was mad that he didn't get released for Smash 4. Simon appears to be dressed as he was in the Super…Continue

Today starts one of the hypest times in all of the Fighting Game Community. The Evolution Gaming Series, or Evo for short.
In 1996 Tom Cannon wanted a place where all of the best Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo players could come and show who was the best. He decided to create a big tournament. Originally named "Battle of the Bay", this a 40-man Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo & Street Fighter Alpha 2 tournament literally started in a basement and grew in to something huge. Now being hosted at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas with over 20,000 people set to go and over a 100,000 watching it on Twitch. Evo is the tournament to end all fighting game tournaments. Winning Evo is literally beating the entire world.
Over Seven thousand competitors, from over 20…

Nintendo Labo is the cardboard craze that lets you build peripherals for your Switch. So far, you can build a robot suit, or a number of little contraptions like a remote control, piano, and fishing pole depending on the kit you buy.
And now, Nintendo has upped their game and is releasing a new Labo Kit. Vehicles.
I gotta say, this looks so fun. It also seems to be "going somewhere". Sure, we've seen the vehicle transitions in Mario Kart 8, going from car to plane to boat, but adding these physical items could make that experience even more fun.
And just think of what could come of this. Playing other games with Labo kits would be a nice twist, and making Labo kits for "other" games would also be welcome.
The Toy-Con 3: Vehicle Kit will be available September 14th.
Can we please have a…Continue

On March of 2007, Frederator Studios bought the rights to produce a Castlevania animated flim. They wanted to adapt Castlevania 3: Dracula's Curse into a direct to video movie. They went on to hire the great Warren Ellis as a screen writer. As noted, Federator's Kevin Kolde said that "he did not want the show to be aimed at children" which allowed Ellis to make it as bloody and graphic as he wanted it to be. But after several rewrites production stalled around 2008.
It has entered "developmental hell".
In June 2008, Ellis finished his script. The shows production blog noted in August of 2008 that they were going to begin shopping the script around as a theatrical release. No further updates were to follow and the blog was quietly deleted shortly after.

Here's a game that wasn't on my radar at all. It's called Kabounce and it's pitched as "multiplayer pinball".
It looks like it works in a "Splatoon-esque" way. Color the arena in your own color while attacking the other balls.
"Compete head to head in 4 versus 4 multiplayer pinball arena. Capture bumpers and eliminate opponents using powerful abilities to earn points. Bounce and spin your ball to reach incredible speeds or launch yourself into aerial platforming routes to surprise your opponents with an attack from above!
Master your movement in this unique team versus team pinball experience, dominate the playing field with powerful abilities and annihilate your opponents to take their points by force.…Continue
