Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire E3 News

Image
The Pokemon Company announced some major Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire related news, including new Mega Evolutions for Sableye, Septile, Swampert, and Diancie and primal devolution for Kyogre and Groudon.
New screenshots and videos were released alongside the announcements, and Japan magazine CoroCoro released even more information.

First off, the Hoenn legendaries get glorified Mega Evolutions known as Primal Devolutions: the legendaries are said to release their full inner potential but not much else is known. For more information click here.

Mega Dianice, a surprise for everyone, is a new Mega Evolution in Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. It will keep it's Rock Fairy typing and gain the ability Clear Body, which prevents other Pokemon from lowering it's stats. Diancie will be distributed in Pokemon X and Y and a Mega Stone will be hidden in Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, possibly hinting at when Diancie and The Cocoon of Distruction will come to theate…

Disscussion: Violence in Video Games

Image
I support all kinds of video games such as puzzlers, platformers, RPGs, and games of the fantasy genre, and it all mainly has to do with Nintendo. But another type of game is out there, mainly popular to the other big-name consoles: FPSs, or First Person Shooters.

First Person Shooters have always really bugged me and left me thinking: why do people play FPS games or any violent video game (where blood or pain is clearly expressed)? Why is it one of the bigger gernes these days? What are the effects on humans, specifically teens and children? What makes people wanting more "Call of Duty clones"?

I want to hear from you before I express my thoughts in a later post. Send me your thoughts on Violence in Video Games at my Twitter (@TheCarterFitz) or send me and email at turtleboyfitz@gmail.com. I look forward to hearing from you!

Pikmin 3 for Wii U Review

Image
Apart of the Club Nintendo promotional offer along with my Mario Kart 8 copy (review soon) I choose Pikmin 3 for my free digital downloadable game. New to Pikmin and hearing little about it, I thought it would be a great time to try it out (after all, I already owned New Super Mario Bros. U and my brother owns The Legend of Zelda: The Windwaker HD, plus I didn't care to much for Wii Party U). How well does it play and feel? Pretty great.

Pikmin 3 is hard to explain. In the year 20XX, the planet Koppai is facing a food shortage and sends out ships in search of edible matter. They soon find a planet by the name of PNF-404 and detect food and life on the planet. Three astronauts, Alph, Brittany, and Charlie are sent to the planet to gather as much food as possible before the supply runs out in 100 days. During the landing, however, they crash land on PNF-404 and get separated, where they find the Pikmin.

Pikmin are creatures that are very friendly creatures that are willing to hel…

Luigi's Death Stare Makes Fox News

This would be close to nothing relevant, but Mario Kart has had over 1.2 million copies sold since it's release last Friday, myself included! A review will be up soon, but for now, enjoy this video. What random things make the news!



My Nintendo E3 hopes and predictions

Image
This is a very fun post I've been meaning to make for a while. Since this is about E3, I've got some news to share first. The details for the Super Smash Bros. Invitational have been revealed! Take a look at the video below. Please note that I strictly post about Nintendo events and games. This E3 predictions list WILL NOT have events relating to Microsoft, Sony, or any other gaming developers/companies. 
The Legend of Zelda: Wii U For me, this might be the hardest to predict since many styles of Zelda games are out there. The Wii U does not yet have a game in The Legend of Zelda franchise, aside from The Windwaker HD, which is a remake of the Gamecube title of the same name. Since Hyrule Warriors is coming out sometime this year as a realistic Zelda title, maybe we'll have a new adventure with Toon Link, or maybe they'll combine the idea with elements from A Link Between Worlds and use the gamepad in a unique way. It's just my predictions, but the new toon-styled …

Pokedex Pokemon X and Pokemon Y BOOK REVIEW

Image
The Pokedex book for Pokemon X and Pokemon Y book is a hard-back book full of Pokemon knowledge. Need to know the height of a Helioptile? It's in there! Need to know what level Lucario learns Aura Sphere? It's in there as well!
The Pokedex is a device used to record information on Pokemon after they've been caught. The Pokedex can also be used for reference, like in this book where you can look up any of the Kalos native Pokemon and their Mega Evolution forms. The book lists every detail about every native Pokemon- what type it is, it's stats, moves it can learn at what level, and so on.
This book is more than a Pokedex though- it's also a breeding guide, a post-game adventure guide, a map, and a encyclopedia for moves, abilities, and items, such as Mega Stones and PP/HP Up.
Let this book be your guide on your post-game journey. It's sold at Barnes and Noble for $20 in the US. I would recommend it to anyone who wants tips to breed perfect Pokemon, complete the…
