In the lead up to the release of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, I went back and played all of the 3D Zelda titles I hadn’t actually completed: Majora’s Mask, Twilight Princess, and Skyward Sword. Though I wasn’t a fan of how the games became slower to start with each successive iteration’s expansion of boring tutorials, I enjoyed them all very much. I’d say Majora’s Mask was the best, followed by Skyward Sword, and then Twilight Princess (If that order triggers you, hold onto your butts, because this isn’t the most controversial claim I’m going to make).

In the last moments of the Nintendo Treehouse, ARMS producer Kosuke Yabuki came on to announce new DLCs coming to the game soon. First, he gave us a look at Max Brass, the first DLC character. Max Brass is the greatest fighter ever on the ARMS Grand Prix, so much so that his arms are made out of championship belts. He sports a Trojan helmet and a huge upper body.

For those hungry for more Legend of Zelda, the first DLC pack drops on June 30th. “Master Trials,” features a challenge mode not unlike those seen in previous games, a 45 floor challenge run where Link begins devoid of weapons, and scavenge them from fallen foes to survive through the increasingly difficult waves of enemies, with the reward of a permanently empowered, always glowing Master Sword.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe released recently, and all signs point to it being another huge win for the Nintendo Switch: It’s the fastest selling Mario Kart in North American history. The franchise has always been an evergreen product for Nintendo, one of those releases that will sell throughout the life of a system, which is why they’ve always stuck to one release per console. This has to make one wonder: What will happen in regards to a new entry on the Nintendo Switch now that it has Mario Kart 8 Deluxe?
Personally, I feel Mario Kart 8 Deluxe should continue on as a service instead of moving on to a new entry for no real gain. Continue reading Top 5 characters and stages that need to be Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC
If you want to read more about the lore theory connecting Demon’s Souls, Dark Souls, and Bloodborne into a single timeline, then you can find that here.
After watching Derrick of GameXplain stream a few hours of game play on Twitch, I have to say that Hyrule Warriors looks good. A lot of my fears were alleviated. However, a new can of worms has been opened.
I recently made a post about Dark Souls 2: Crown of the Sunken King DLC, and the topic of DLC is still fresh on people’s mind’s after the Hyrule Warriors Direct. Many people are complaining that it even has DLC. Well that’s a load of bull. Believe it or not there are good and bad ways to handle DLC.
The first of three DLC packages for Dark Souls 2, the Crown of the Sunken King primarily takes place the poison plagued, subterranean sanctum city of Shulva. While Dark Souls 2 may be looked at as inferior to the original, I never saw it as anything less than a stellar sequel, so my expectations for the Sunken King were high.
