Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All Stars Review!

Hey, johnny139 here, bringing you the first Nintendo 5-Star Review! Our game this time? Why, the biggest Wii game of 2010 (so far, at least), Tatsunoko vs. Capcom!

Now, I'm a Wii owner. And a fighting game enthusiast. And a Capcom junkie. And a lover of classic anime. So when I heard that Tatsunoko vs. Capcom was the next installment of the Capcom Vs. series, I nearly flipped. Then I realized how unlikely it would be for such a game - full of obscure characters in licensing limbo - to come to US shores. So, I lamented.

But months ago, the western world heard rumbles of an American release. New characters, online, improved gameplay... and Capcom delivered, fully aware of the fact the chances of success were slim at best. Capcom, we can only assume, worked hard wrangling all of these characters for a global release. Was it worth the effort? It most certainly was.

Top Ten Games of the Decade! PF Edition!

For those reading who don't know me, I'm not Pikaby. I'm Pokefreak113. A mod on N5S. Read a few blogs back to see my introduction along with the rest of the team.

I'm here to write a list of the ten greatest games of the years 2000-2010. If you agree, good for you. If not, good for you. None of you have any idea how much I want to put Mario 64 on this list... Be aware, most of them are Pokemon titles. I'm sorry, but I can't shake my fanboyism towards the series.

These are solely my opinions and do not reflect those of Pikaby, DestinyGuy or Nintendo 5-Star.

Pokemon 5th gen games coming!

Written by pikaby

Nintendo 5-Star just got tipped off on this (a day late then) from the official Japanese Pokemon website. The 5th generation Pokemon games are in development for Nintendo DS and is scheduled to be released late this year! Excitement ensues.

The short article doesn't say much beyond announcing the new pair of games except that the NIntendo DS Pokemon games have been extremely popular because of the dual-screens, Wi-fi connection...stating a short recap of Pokemon's history on the Game Boy, nothing new.

Our balls are ready (Pokeballs). Bring on the news!

Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: A sign?

Written by pikaby

What I am about to say is my own speculation and should not be taken as a serious fact. It should give you something to think about though. Seeing as Tatsunoko vs Capcom, the high-profile 2D fighting game everyone has been waiting for has just been released on US shores, I'll juat take this chance to talk more about Capcom and the Wii.

Pokepark Wii- Pikachu's Big Adventure- Import Review

Pokemon has been through a lot. From the original Pokemon Red/Blue RPGs on the Gameboy, it's still one of the most popular franchises in history and remains one of the main pop culture icons of Japan. Aside from the main RPG games there are a ton of Pokemon spinoff games to satsfy hardcore fans. Most gamers would pass on them however. Yeah, things like Mystery Dungeon, Ranger and Trozei. Pokemon spinoffs tend to cater to only a niche group of Pokemon diehards, and so I'll be reviewing this game as a Pokefan.

Shallow minigame collection? Bah! As long as it has Pokemon in it, I'm pretty much content. I've just finished playing the new Pokepark Wii game and now I'm ready to show my truckload of pictures I took while playing the game! Yeah, Pokepark allows you to save screenshots on an SD card. Some of them may contain spoilers.

Wii Accessorize

Since the launch of the Nintendo Wii in late 2006, the level of interactivity with games had been taken to a whole new level. I mean, the Wiimote actually sensed your movements, for crying out loud. Wasn't it the most fascinating thing you'd ever seen? Back then, anyway. Initially the Wii by itself should have been enough to hook Nintendo's market this time- casual gamers. It wasn't enough, so Nintendo released a whole load of other accessories(some which were not really all that necessary) for the console to help it achieve its goal.

Ninokuni: The Another World

Ninokuni, the Nintendo DS RPG game developed by Level-5 seems to have missed the mark for its 10th anniversary. 2009 has come and gone and it still isn't released. Although it isn't confirmed, the game should see a release sometime this year.
