Trailers Trailers From Last Week 6/7/2015 – Caution for Fallout

Written by Twisted Ideas

Oh boy, it’s back baby. Fallout 4 isn’t the biggest surprise ever but we always want confirmation. We see glimpses of the past before the bombs dropped, the protagonist speaks and there’s a dog again. These are only speculations of what the game might feature but we can imagine that this post-apocalyptic future that’s stuck in the 1950’s will maintain the witty writing and humor that the series if famous for.

Nintendo in its need to innovate has been promoting their Amiibo figurines for the past couple of months. Amiibo are miniature statues that can unlock content and interact with games on the Wii U and the New Nintendo 3DS (currently out only in Japan and Australia).

Where I live, we have had a Super Smash Bros Universe previews in a few of our Best Buys. Unfortunately I missed out on them. Fortunately for me Club Nintendo has sent me early access codes for being a Platinum member (which they failed to mention on their website) and I’ve been playing that for a few days. I’ve been avoiding news on the games so what I might says my be old news already but here’s what I felt.

Written by Twisted Ideas

This past weekend I attended FanExpo Canada in Toronto. On top of seeing celebrities and spending more money than I’m willing to admit I had the opportunity to play some upcoming games. Sony, Ubisoft, Warner Bros, Bungie and EA had a presence at the expo. Most of the games at FanExpo appeared to be the E3 builds. While I didn’t have a chance to play each title, I did play some highly anticipated games.

Article 2011 Club Nintendo Platinum Reward

Written by Twisted Ideas

My Club Nintendo annual reward has just came in even though the prize was announced July this year I believe. What takes them so long, I don’t know. This year’s reward is a set of 25 buttons featuring characters and items from Super Mario Bros. Now I just need to figure out a place to pin them all.

For those of you who don’t know what Club Nintendo is, it is a system where you enter PIN’s found licensed Nintendo games and downloaded games if you link your account to their site. You will have to answer quick questionnaires about how you heard and what you think about their games before you get your coins. Coins can be used towards items in Nintendo’s store such as posters and bags. Earning 300 coins will gain you Gold status and 600 for Platinum. Prizes are announced at the end of June and those who have accumulated enough for Gold or Platinum status will be sent the gift.

If you happen to own a bunch of Wii, DS or 3DS games and haven’t thrown the piece of paper with the PIN then go to club.nintendo.com and give it a look and see what you like.
