[Review] Star Fox Guard
Posted on 2 years ago by Philip(@P_Trah) in Reviews, Wii U | 4 Comments | 0 Likes
System: Wii U
Release date: April 22, 2016
Developer: Nintendo / PlatinumGames
During E3 2014, Nintendo showed off a couple of demos that were meant to highlight some of the more unique uses of the Wii U GamePad. Two years later, fans would hear nothing about either of them until the March Nintendo Direct of this year where it was announced that one of the demos, Project Guard, had been completed. Enter Star Fox Guard, a companion game to coincide with the release of the newest entry in the Star Fox series, Star Fox Zero. Nintendo’s spin-off games of popular franchises have proven to be hit-or-miss over the years, so just how well does this title fare?

Release date: April 15, 2016
Developer: Silicon Studio
The highly-anticipated sequel to the 3DS’s surprise hit from Silicon Studio – which was originally supposed to be a brand new Final Fantasy game before becoming Bravely Default due to its different sense of direction – is here. It reunites us with our favorite characters from the first game while introducing a few new ones to bring us a brand new story, and manages to keep the world as fresh and vibrant as ever. Get ready to embark on an incredible new journey traversing the familiar and unfamiliar in Bravely Second’s vast new world as you save Agnés, who now serves as Pope in a seemingly utopian world – that is, until a mysterious new Empire kidnaps her on the day a peace treaty was to be signed.

We’re back with another weekend comic! It’s Pokemon-themed again, but this one is a bit special. We’re seeking input from all of you to help continue this “mini-series”.
Here’s today’s comic (click for full size):
As you can see in the last panel of the comic, the Pokemon inside Teddy’s Pokeball is currently a mystery. We’re leaving up to one of you to decide where we take things next. Should it be an existing Pokemon? Or maybe a new kind of creature? Heck, maybe something crazy like a Goomba or even Reggie?!
You can tell us what you want to see in the comments below. Even a drawing or any other way of sharing input works! We’ll end up picking a winner, which will be featured in the next part of this comic. We’re looking forward to seeing what ideas everyone has in mind!

No April Fools’ Day news story from us, but we do have something that fits in with the festivities…

So with that in mind, it’s worth highlighting the finest tracks that formed the soundtrack to our childhoods. Here are ten of the best tracks inspired by the hit video game:
