BOOK REVIEW: CATCHING FIRE, BY SUZANNE COLLINS

One might think that Suzanne Collins named this book after the hype that would befall her series in only a short time.  The Hunger Games series has caught fire and is burning brightly.  I assume if you are reading this then you have some interest in the series and have read or seen The Hunger Games so my apologies if I spoil the book that previously was released.

FIRST LOOK: LEGO BATMAN 2 DC SUPER HEROES

Today we’re going to take a look at a game released on June 19th, 2012: Lego Batman 2.This game got a lot of hype on the internet, had a few advertisements over usual at Gametops and other gaming stores, and caught my eye personally. Being a comic reader, I’m always interested in games that are based on Comics,because while they already have established stories, these games give you an option to explore “What if…” scenerios, different variations of plots, and of course being in control of the characters. If you’ve ever played a LEGO brand game, you know what’s in store for you. If you don’t, here’s my first look into the game and how it plays out. First off, relax- it’s comedic. Maybe you don’t have that sense of humor you need for the game, but it really takes on a level of humor that you’re just not going to see in any of the Christopher Nolan films. The game’s premise is easy to derive- Batman’s villains are at it again, but this time with the help of Lex Luthor and a few other memorable faces. To go along with this, Superman and other DC heroes join the party. Storywise, you’re going to get a basic plot with a comedic twist, but we play games to have fun.

PROJECT M CHARACTER ANALYSIS: LUCARIO REVISITED

We had a look at Lucario last time, but this time around, we’ll discuss him in a bit more detail as far as what his new options afford him the ability to accomplish.  Combos are the name of the game with Lucario.  His individual attacks aren’t especially powerful, so to rack up the damage and prep for a kill, you’ll want to string together as many quick hits as possible, always aiming to end with Force Palm.  And let’s be honest - the new aerial Force Palm is just so fun to use.  Just be weary of good techers; they’ll be waiting to punish you, so follow with a down air or neutral air to be safe.Buffering was touched on quite a bit before, but the creative player can do some great things with it.  For instance, on larger and/or heavier characters (Bowser, DK, Captain Falcon, Fox, etc), at low damage, you can rather easily string together loops of a jab > jab > force palm combo.  For spacing, you can use forward tilt in place of some jabs, as it covers a bit of distance or your dash attack.  The ability to act out of moves so quickly is a huge advantage, as your individual attacks don’t deal a huge amount of damage.  If you’re making contact on anything outside of a smash, you should be aiming to continue the onslaught or end it with Force Palm.  Rush and chase; don’t let up on the pressure.

FIRST LOOK DEMO: KINGDOM HEARTS 3D

When I heard there was a Kingdom Hearts game coming out on the 3DS, I had the feeling that a longtime KH fan would have- is it Kingdom Hearts 3!?

Sadly, no, it is not. But don’t be sad, unlike other spin-offs we’ve been served, Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance is a continuation of the story. That’s right- a game where supposedly, by the end of it, we’ll be finally ready to understand what is going on, or what will go on, in Kingdom Hearts 3.

Nintendo was nice enough to put a demo of this game up on their eShop, so naturally I went and downloaded it. Here’s the inside scoop on what you’ll get, but let me say this now- GET IT. Whether you read what I have to say or not, get the demo, because it is a lot of fun, and a nice intro on what to expect. So without further ado, let’s begin.

For starters, the demo offers two great options: a Tutorial, and a level in the game, Traverse Town.

WWE SMACKDOWN LOWDOWN - 6/30/2012

Triple threat title matches?  We haven’t seen that in…oh wait, they open with a replay of the Kane/Punk/Bryan triple threat from Monday.  Okay, technically that wasn’t for the title, but we’ve seen the match enough times by now that it barely matters.  Remember, this match ends with Bryan kicking Punk’s head off and stealing the win, granting him a WWE Title match at Money in the Bank.

New 3DS XL/LL Version Coming Soon

Though there is no second circle pad, the size of the 3DS screens have been increased 90% and there are actual Start/Home/Select buttons. The battery life has been extended to 6-10 hours (with 3D on, even longer without) and the included SD card is not boosted to 4GB instead of 2GB.

3DS XL/LL arrives in Japan July 28 and in the North American region August 19. Europe will be receiving the XL/LL, but it was not specified when. In Japan and Europe, the charging dock will be sold separately and the console won’t come with an AC adapter, though the old one works with it. In North America, the console will retail at $199 ($30 more than the regular 3DS console).
