Poll: Does Little Mac’s One Hit K.O. Punch Give Him an Unfair Advantage in Super Smash Bros.?

By Joel Palermo, April 12, 2014 46

Amongst a variety of Super Smash Bros. details revealed during the latest Nintendo Direct, one of the most interesting topics discussed was Little Mac’s move set, which includes a one hit K.O. move called K.O. Uppercut. Once Little Mac builds up his power meter – an exclusive fighting component to his character at this time – by either dealing damage or taking damage, players will be able to utilize his one hit K.O. move at their discretion.

Details as to how easy it will be to connect with this move are still unknown, but the entire concept of giving a single character an insta-kill move has begged us to ask the question – does Little Mac’s K.O. Uppercut give him an unfair advantage against other players? Sure, Little Mac is extremely weak when it comes to aerial combat, but does that warrant giving him such a unique and powerful move? Make the jump to take the poll and don’t be afraid to share your thoughts on the matter in the comments.

Poll: Will You Play Super Smash Bros. For Fun or For Glory?

By Ben Lamoreux, April 10, 2014 21

During the exciting Super Smash Bros. Direct earlier this week, it was revealed that their will be two different styles for online multiplayer this time around: ‘For Fun’ and ‘For Glory.’ While Super Smash Bros. has a wide variety of great stages, weapons, and items, some feel this makes the game too unbalanced and not competitive enough. As such, many players stick to the strict rules of playing with no items, Fox only, and only Final Destination as a stage.

Whether you’re an ultra competitive player or someone just looking to have a great time, the new iteration of Super Smash Bros. has you covered. By selecting For Fun, you’ll have access to all stages (except Final Destination) and all items. By selecting For Glory, you’ll play exclusively on Final Destination with no items. However, to keep things from getting too repetitive, there will be a Final Destination version of every stage in the game. The only question left is: How will you play? Hit the jump and cast your vote!

Child’s Play Raises Record $7.6 Million For Children’s Hospitals In 2013

By Ben Lamoreux, January 5, 2014 3

With last year’s nearly constant bombardment of stories in which video games were accused of being the root of all kinds of violence and wrongdoing, it’s extremely refreshing to see the incredible amount of good that can come out of the industry. Child’s Play, an organization that raises money for children’s hospitals, is reporting a record-breaking year of charitable donations from gamers.

Child’s Play started ten years ago and raised $250,000 for one hospital, but thanks to contributions from the gaming community they have grown exponentially and now donate to 90 hospitals around the world. This year they raised a phenomenal $7.6 million for children in hospitals and domestic violence shelters. In total, gamers like you have helped Child’s Play raise over $25 million dollars in the past decade.

Breathtaking Lara Croft Fan Film

By Mases Hagopian, January 3, 2014 2

Inspired by the Tomb Raider video games, as well as action movies from the 80s, a group of talented independent film makers have created their own fan film titled Croft. Outside of the Stormtrooper Effect, where the enemies miss every single bullet, but our protagonist is spot on with every shot, the film is quite exceptional. It features non-stop quality action, some decent acting for the most part, and quite an emotional and stunning ending. If you’ve got almost 20 minutes to spare, I highly recommend making the jump and checking this video out.

Community Poll: Is Hyrule Warriors A Good Move For Nintendo?

By Ben Lamoreux, December 18, 2013 128

During this morning’s Nintendo Direct we got an interesting surprise in the form of Hyrule Warriors. Due out in 2014, this Wii U game is a Zelda-themed collaboration between Tecmo Koei and Nintendo in which Link squares off against hordes of enemies and bosses, battling his way across Hyrule.

While this wasn’t the Zelda Wii U announcement that fans of the series have been patiently (or perhaps impatiently) waiting for, it does give the fanbase a taste of Zelda action in the near future to ease the wait. However, reactions across the internet have been somewhat mixed, so we want to hear what our readers have to say on the subject. Is Hyrule Warriors a good move for Nintendo? Hit the jump, cast your vote, and join the debate!
