The Big N5 of the Week - Mass Olympic Pokemon!

Welcome gamers to another addition of the Big N5. Let's get on with the best news of the week:

5. ME3 Wii-U will have bonus ME1 + 2 interactive stories. 
Confirmed as a launch title with included Extended Cut DLC, ME3 Wii-U is beginning to look very tempting for potential buyers. As if that wasn't enough, the game will feature two interactive backstories from the past Mass Effect games, which will determine the narrative and plot points of ME3. Mass Effect 3 will launch sometime this Holdiay season.

4. Special Gamestop Keldeo Event! 
Kicking off August 27th and ending October 6th, Gamestop stores will be distributing the Legendary Pokemon Keldeo for free for all Pokemon Black and White owners! (not just B2/W2) Mark your calenders, trainers!

3. Olympic Gymnast performs to The Legend of Zelda theme. 
Gymnasts usually pick "Ave Maria" or an opera theme to perform with in gymnastics, but not Elsa Garcia. Seen here performing to a violin arrangement of the Zelda Medley in case you missed it. See even commented on her choice saying: "I'm surprised that so many people have recognized the song. It's a win-win situation. I like the fact that gamers want more people to recognize beautiful game soundtracks and I want more people to get involved in gymnastics. ...I thought of Link running around through the forest, mountains, caves, and how agile he is, it was funny to think that I was doing something similar but in my own way. I liked what it reminded me of: the whole concept of never giving up on my quest." Thanks Elsa for a great tribute to Zelda fans everywhere! 

2. $60 Wii-U games seem more probable? 
Pachter the analyst strikes again with another one of his so-called Nintendo foresite concerning wii-U game price tags:“If they stay at $50 for a game, I think they [Nintendo] are making a mistake. It would signal to the public that the Wii U is of lower quality than the other consoles. It’ll be interesting to see what they do.” - Michael Pachter. Really Pachter? He's not half wrong, but I personally think it won't take much to manufacture HD games now, so an extra $10 would just make Nintendo look like greedy coin monger, Wario.

1. Man guesses Konami code wrong on Who Wants to Ba a Millionaire.  
In a sad twist of fate and lack of video game knowledge, a man competing on Who Wants to be a Millionaire guessed the Konami Code wrong and lost the game. Guess he doesn't get the 30 extra lives...   

Thanks for reading, and remember that Mario Land is only $2.99 on the 3DS eShop until Thursday!
