Opinions: Let’s examine the Hero and Banjo-Kazooie in Smash

So, we got reveal trailers for Dragon Quest‘s Heroes (from III, IV, VIII and XI, respectively) and Banjo-Kazooie’s titular duo yesterday, and I want to speculate how they will work.

Opinion: E3 Speculation Time! (Update: How’d I Do)

E3 has more or less come to pass, with most of the heavy hitters showing their conferences and two full days of press reactions, so I’m going to safely assume I can update this to see how well I predicted things! 1. I suspect two DLC characters for Smash Ultimate will be revealed. One at…

Opinions: Konami seems to be readying some comps…what I want!

UPDATE – Well that was prescient of me. I’ll react appropriately tomorrow.

Opinions: Smash Bros. Ultimate Speculation – DLC!

Nintendo confirmed there would be five character/stage/music packs coming to Ultimate over the next year or so, and since I am DYING to play this game as it is I want to speculate on what they might be. This time I’m going to revive some of my most wanted characters who were not deconfirmed as…

Nintendo announced the next Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct will be this Thursday, 11/1 at 7AM PST! It’ll be 40 minutes long and will be the last Smash specific Direct before the game is released!

Opinion: Playstation Classic is a thing, so what do I want for it?

In an unsurprising move, Sony announced they would enter the Mini Console arena with a Playstation Classic based on the original PS1 during Tokyo Game Show. So far they have confirmed 5 of the 20 games: Final Fantasy VII, Wild ARMs, Jumping Flash!, Tekken 3 and Ridge Racer Type 4. For other particulars, here’s the…
