Nintendo Switch sure is one of the most successful consoles right now, we can’t help but notice though that something is missing. A new Super Smash Bros title would be a perfect fit for the Switch and, rumor has it, Nintendo might soon give it to us. With the addition of Mega Man 11, Kirby Star Allies and Metroid Prime 4 to the Nintendo Switch Store later this year, all major Super Smash Bros characters will be officially on the console. What better way to celebrate the occasion than by giving fans a new title for the popular fighting game? Apparently, there’s a rumor going around that Nintendo already has Super Smash Bros on the radar for Nintendo Switch and will have an official announcement for this year. Emily Rogers has said on ResetEra that a new entry for the franchise will indeed be announced later this year mixing new and old content of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS. The post says: Unfortunately, I don’t have enough information to … [Read more...] about Rumor: There’s A New Super Smash Bros Coming To Nintendo Switch This Year
Codemasters tend to frown upon carfights, urging people to drive responsibly through their F1 and Dirt games, but their next race ’em up certainly looks smash-happy. Onrush is its name, and driving fast while smashing other vehicles is its game. It’s made by the Codies studio formerly known as Evolution Studios, who made PlayStation racers MotorStorm and Driveclub before Sony closed the studio and Codies snapped up the team. Though Codies announced Onrush last year, they’ve been weirdly quiet about the fact that it’s coming to PC too; I’d entirely missed that fact until this new trailer. Watch: See? Fast vehicles, smashing each other. Codemasters gab about the game having eight vehicle classes, which not only drive differently but have different abilities. Some are offensive, Codies say without going into details, while others are support abilities to help out your team. Curious! I quite like silly abilities and violence in driving games, and racing in … [Read more...] about MotorStorm team’s new racer Onrush looks smashing
Super Smash Bros. Brawl turned 10 years old this week — a major milestone for one of Nintendo’s most beloved franchises, your opinions on the game itself be damned. (I’m still a fan.) While the Wii game may not have aged well for many players, Brawl shook up the Nintendo fan service-laden, crossover fighting series with two monumental inclusions: third-party characters on the roster. Solid Snake and Sonic the Hedgehog entered the fray in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, breaking Smash’s tacit rule of “Nintendo characters only.” But if you were online back in the day when Nintendo revealed the fighters — first Snake at E3 2006, then Sonic in October 2007 — you remember that the pair broke the internet, too. Nintendo fans aren’t only fans of Nintendo, after all; for Solid Snake to return to Nintendo consoles in a Smash game, of all things, was huge. Sonic’s inclusion? Even bigger. You might remember the Smash Dojo, the site that all of … [Read more...] about When Sonic joined Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the internet exploded
This weekend, why not spend some time surrounded by creeping death that approaches from all sides in the form of horrid aliens and giant spiders? Sounds appealing, doesn’t it? What if I told you that you don’t even have to leave your house and that it won’t cost you a penny? SOLD, you’d say, and I’d patiently restate that you don’t need to pay anything at all. Crimsonland, the top-down shooter that inexplicably doesn’t have a sequel (more on that shortly), is free to play via Steam right now and for the rest of the weekend. Hurrah! It’s great and you should definitely try it if you’re not allergic to Smash TV, monsters or the killing of monsters. If you buy Crimsonland during the free weekend, which has already begun and ends Sunday evening, you’ll get an 80% discount. That makes it £2.12. You used to be able to buy a house for that in the eighties. Now let’s turn to the subject of sequels, because the reason … [Read more...] about Smashing shooter Crimsonland is free to play this weekend
