[Review] Splatoon 2

Posted on 4 months ago by in Reviews, Switch | 17 Comments | 0 Likes

System: Switch
Release date: July 21, 2017
Developer: Nintendo
Publisher Nintendo


One of the best things about the original Splatoon when it first rolled onto store shelves a few years back was how it was never afraid to be itself. When creating a new IP, Nintendo didn’t choose to play it safe and instead provided completely new gameplay we had never seen before and a booming world to dive into like no other. It’s no wonder fans took an immediate liking to the concept, and throughout its near two years of support, players kept coming back. It makes perfect sense that Nintendo rolled out a sequel just in time for the Switch’s first year to put a “fresh” IP in the spotlight once again, but does this sequel provide enough to justify the 2, or does it provide “2” little?

We have a few different pieces of site news to discuss. Let’s get right to it!

News position openings

We have two news positions open on the site at the moment. The first one is a higher priority, but if we can find someone capable of handling the second position as well though, that’d also be great.

Below are the times for each:

Position 1 (two days a week)

– 2 PM PT – 6 PM PT
– 5 PM ET – 9 PM ET
– 10 PM in the UK – 2 AM in the UK
– 11 PM in Europe – 3 AM in Europe

Position 2 (Wednesday, possibly Friday)

– 1 AM PT – 4:30 AM PT
– 4 AM ET – 7:30 AM ET
– 9 AM in the UK – 12:30 PM in the UK
– 10 AM in Europe – 1:30 PM in Europe

The purpose of both positions is exactly as what you would expect – to deliver news to the thousands of readers reading Nintendo Everything. If chosen, we’ll teach you everything you need to know about posting on the site.

Please note that both of these positions are non-paid, at least to start out with. If you’re interested in either one, please send in a brief email here (select “Other”) expressing your interest. We’ll take things from there. When sending in the email, please specify which position you’re going for.

Advertising

I wanted to make it absolutely clear that we don’t accept pop-up ads on Nintendo Everything. They’ve not been approved to run in any capacity. However, we’ve been hearing some feedback that redirects / pop-ups have become an issue on mobile for some users.

If you do encounter these types of ads – be it on mobile or PC – or any other intrusive advertising, please send in an email through our contact form here (select “Advertising”). If you can, provide us with the following:

– Your region (USA, etc.)
– The device you’re on
– URL of the ad
– Screenshot of the ad

We don’t want these ads here as much as you do, and they’re always a nightmare for us to deal with. Some of you have worked with us in the past in eliminating troublesome ads. We’ll always do our best to swiftly take care of similar situations in the future.

Survey

It’s been a long while since we last hosted a survey for Nintendo Everything’s readers. If you have a few minutes to spare, please answer a few questions here. None are mandatory, so you can skip anything you’re not interested in responding to. We appreciate your feedback in advance!

A new month is here! We just entered July last week, so that means we want to know what you’ve been playing.

Have you started up something entirely new for the month? Have you given Ever Oasis a shot? Or maybe you’re trying something on Switch like ARMS or the new Zelda DLC. Whatever the case, let us know in the comments below!

Highlights from last week’s topic: Zelda: Breath of the Wild – The Master Trials impressions

The first of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s DLC packs launched this week. Nintendo began distributing The Master Trials on Friday. While the big DLC we’re all waiting for is coming this holiday with The Champions’ Ballad (featuring an original story and new dungeon), this is a nice way to return the game and hold us over until then.

Probably the biggest addition in The Master Trials is the challenge that has players taking on room after room and defeating enemies without dying. Completing the challenge lets you power up the Master Sword even further. Other highlights include the tougher Master Mode, Korok Mask, and more.

How many of you have tried out The Master Trials? If you have, did you beat the Trial of the Sword? Have you given Master Mode a try? Share your impressions with us in the comments below.

Highlights from last week’s topic: E3 2017 reactions

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild marked a monumental step for the series in terms of how Nintendo portrayed its characters. For the first time, the game featured voice acting. Among others, Zelda was given a voice.

Patricia Summersett played the role of Zelda in the English version of Breath of the Wild. With the game’s first DLC pack arriving yesterday, we felt this would be the perfect opportunity to speak with Ms. Summersett about her role in the game. Continue on below for our full discussion.

[Review] Ever Oasis

Posted on 5 months ago by in 3DS, Reviews | 39 Comments | 0 Likes

System: 3DS
Release date: June 23, 2017
Developer:: Grezzo
Publisher: Nintendo


At E3 last year, Nintendo showcased a brand new 3DS game from Grezzo. An action RPG curated by the team that gave us the Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask remakes, Ever Oasis gives us a look into the developer’s own original ideas and concepts and very much showcases what they can do. Is this creative idea enough to revive life into the 3DS, or should everybody find their own oasis back on the Switch?

[Review] RPG Maker Fes

Posted on 5 months ago by (@LyonHart_) in 3DS, Reviews | 29 Comments | 0 Likes

System: 3DS

Developer: Kadokawa / Jupiter
Publisher NIS America


For those who are unfamiliar, RPG Maker may seem like a brand new game coming to the 3DS, but really it’s a creation tool meant to give easy access to those that want to make simple RPGs and get into the realm of game development. The series has had a long history in video games, first being released in the early 90s, and is still heavily used to this day and frequently associated with short, indie titles typically released on digital outlets on PC. However, well-known games have also been made in RPG Maker such as Corpse Party, To The Moon, Aveyond, and much more. There are even quite a few RPG Maker-created titles currently available on 3DS. Though mostly a PC program, RPG Maker FES makes its way over to 3DS to give players their own chance at creating whatever it is they’d like using their stylus as their paint brush, and their mind as the ink. RPG Maker, like most engines and tools on PC, can get extremely deep in its technicality depending on how much one is trying to implement and achieve with their title, but does that flexibility and the power of PCs translate well to 3DS? Surprisingly, very much so.

Just like that, another E3 is in the books. After weeks of hype and speculation, we now know of everything Nintendo had to show between its video presentation and hours of Treehouse streams.

For all of the talk about how long the presentation would be and how Nintendo would mainly be sticking to 2017 games, we arguably saw quite a lot. Not one, but two new Metroid games were announced. A core Pokemon title is in development for Switch. New Kirby and Yoshi titles are coming, not to mention Rocket League as well. Super Mario Odyssey looks fantastic and launches on October 27. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 releases this year despite speculation about it being pushed to 2018, and Fire Emblem Warriors is slated for the fall. 3DS saw some new announcements as well during the Treehouse stream between Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions and Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido.

So what did everyone think of this year’s E3? Did it live up to your expectations? Do you have any personal highlights? Let us know in the comments below.
