Hi everyone! I know it has been a while since the last post and we have so much to catch up on, but today a video called ‘Pokemon Direct’ was released today. The video explains what new Pokemon games are gonna be released this year. I will have to do a post on what I think about the decisions another time because I’m extremely busy, but I promise it at least before or this weekend. Thanks for reading and enjoy the video! What do you think of the game choices? Put your opinions in the comments below!
A new addition to the 3ds family called the New Nintendo 2DS XL. This new console was announced late last week and has confused a lot of people. Some people are wondering why Nintendo are releasing a console almost straight after the very expensive Nintendo Switch. There is not a lot known about the new 2DS but the trailer.
From what I can gather, this new installment is extremely similar to the New Nintendo 3DS XL. The controls seem the same, and, according to what the trailer clearly states, is that the screens are exactly the same size and probably the same screen resolution. The C-stick is included from the previous installment, and everything seems the same. The only difference that I noticed was the actual exterior design of the device. The edges are curved whereas the other installments had pointed edges.
So, do I think there is a point? Well, considering the fact that the Nintendo Switch came out in March and the demand for more of the console to be made, since they completely ran out, makes me think that there is no point. I’ve never heard anyone talk about wanting Nintendo to make one and this 2DS takes away the main aspect of the 3DS that made it stand out, and that was the fact that you couldn’t fold the screens. This new 2DS takes this away, and is fold able, which defies the point of it being a 2DS. Also, on 2ds, you can’t use 3D, hence the name 2DS, but if the screens are the same on both the New 3DS XL and the New 2DS XL, so I’m sure you could just turn the 3D setting off on the 3DS.
Anyway, those were my reasons on why I think the 2DS is pointless, but, you never know, Nintendo can and have surprised us in the past, so maybe this will apply to this piece of tech. Thank you and goodbye!
Final Fantasy Sonic X, for those of you who don’t know, is a flash fan-made game series that started back in 2004 and seemingly ended in 2008, although, now the series is making a comeback nine years later. The creator, BlackDevilX, announced this on January 2017. I’m really excited because I used to play and replay this game over and over again. So far, there are six games, with the seventh coming out. I will have to replay them again! 😀 I’m so hyped, because there is so much going on with Sonic this year.
A new song from Jt Machinima on the video game, Bendy and the Ink Machine! I know there is already alot of Bendy on this blog and all around the internet. I understand that this is getting annoying, believe me, I feel like that as well but I swear this will be, hopefully one of the last BATIM posts for a while. I think this song suits the atmosphere and intention of the game well, even if I might not like the song personally. Hope you all enjoy it!
I’m excited for this new installment in the RPG maker series because I have been attached to RPGs for a year or two now and I only found out about RPG Maker this year from people playing games that they had made using this engine and I’ve seen some bad Sonic Fan RPG videos around YouTube too. I’ve grown attached to the idea of a Game Maker and would love to try out this game for myself. This game comes out in Europe and America on 27/06/17 so be sure to pick it up!
Ever Oasis seems to most people like a combination of different game play styles from very popular video games. Examples of this are the Animal Crossing elements in building up your oasis and inviting travelers in and looking after them. There is also the Legend Of Zelda aspect when you can fight in dungeons and find more travelers that way. I have to admit, from looking at the cover I didn’t even think that there would be a Animal Crossing aspect, and once I saw it on the trailer, I was actually put off the game slightly, but I’m still willing to try it because it looks good as an overall game and I do love Animal Crossing and Legend Of Zelda and I’m sure I’ll love this game.
This game is a new Pikmin game in the series, but this game is a 2d platformer. I don’t know too much about the game, apart from the information I just gave you and the different abilities that the pikimin have:
Red Pikimin – Fire Resistant
Blue Pikimin – Like Water
Yellow Pikimin – Can Jump Higher Than Others + Electricity Resistant
It does look like a very good game, and it wasn’t announced until about a week ago according to Nintendo’s Youtube Channel. I have only played the Pikimin 3 demo so I don’t know much about Pikimin, but I love the game and I love platformers in general so I think I would get a kick out of this game. The game is getting released on 28/09/17.
Harvest Moon: Skytree Village
When I started up the trailer, I was annoyed by the voice of Sabrina and the graphics in some way. The game definitely looks like it is made for young children due to the cuteness of the graphics, but I think the story looks interesting and I would like to try this game out! I’ve never played a Harvest Moon game before, I’d never heard of them until 2015/2016 when I saw PBG’s video on them. This game looks decent enough, although I do think there are some elements that could be improved. The game comes out on 02/06/17, so I’m excited to see how this game will turn out!
I hope you all enjoyed reading this post! Please feel free to like and follow the site! Comment which game are you most looking forward to? Thank You and Goodbye!
