Saturday Video Round Up: February 12 – 18

Saturday is back once again and along with it comes a brand new edition of the Video Round Up. It’s back to bring you the best trailers and videos from the past week, so without further delay, let’s get into it, shall we?

It was a big week for Injustice 2 as the upcoming DC Comics fighting game introduced a bunch of fighters to its expansive roster of heroes and villains. Swamp Thing made his debut, followed by another trailer showing off four femme fatales with Black Canary, Poison Ivy, Catwoman, and Cheetah.

After much success with their Wii U season pass experiment for first party games like Super Smash Bros, Mario Kart 8, and Hyrule Warriors, Nintendo has revealed that they’re doing another season pass for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. While many of you may be worrying that Zelda has always been a complete experience on day one, it appears that Nintendo is not planning on cutting out content and reselling it. Based on the limited information, the post-launch content appears to be additional, and optional content.

I’ve also got new videos for Nier: Automata, Sea of Theaves, Horizon Zero Dawn and so much more after the break, so come check out this week’s batch of trailers!

The full list of videos await you after the jump…

New Breath of the Wild Trailer: Initial Thoughts

With the recent announcement of the Switch’s release date came more news for two exciting entries into Nintendo’s vast library of games.  Not only were we graced with more footage of Breath of the Wild, but we also got to watch open-mouthed as that new Mario game finally got a name, Odyssey.  Super Mario Odyssey, that is.  I’m not usually the type to record an in-depth analysis of my reaction to a game trailer, but I guess the Switch’s hype coupled with Nintendo’s lack of interesting games over the last few years has made these games all the more exciting to me.  Today I’d like to begin the discussion with Breath of the Wild.  Odyssey will follow next week.  So, without further ado… Continue reading New Breath of the Wild Trailer: Initial Thoughts

A Brief Look at the Switch’s Stats

In case you weren’t already aware…the Nintendo Switch is almost upon us!  Nintendo recently released some additional information on the Switch, and even though this information is already readily available online, let me summarize a little bit of what I learned here for you.  First of all, the console’s release date is scheduled for March 3, a date which has another significance that I will cover soon.  That’s pretty exciting, I must say, as I was not expecting it to be available until at least summer.  And at about $300 (at least, for those of us in the US; the Switch’s Wikipedia article lists prices for other parts of the world, as well), that seems to be a pretty reasonable price considering the Switch’s console/handheld abilities.  But keep in mind that there may be some hidden costs….

New Details Revealed for Zelda Wii U

I am not typically one to follow news of any kind, video game news included.  From time to time, however, a tidbit of knowledge catches my eye, more often than not relating to the select series I hold nearest to my heart.  One of those is The Legend of Zelda.  Games from this series are released more and more infrequently these days, and so it is all the more exciting that a new installment is being developed for the Wii U (and the NX, whatever that is…).  This news we have known for a while now, but aside from some screenshots of a truly impressive looking, open world, I don’t think any of us knew all that much concerning the newest game of a much loved franchise.

While looking up the game’s release date, I managed to find out a few new things about the Wii U’s first true Zelda title.  First of all, the title has been revealed to be Breath of the Wild, which I personally find to be a rather curious choice.  At this time, I also saw a new image showing Link…climbing a mountain?  Further research, and I discovered that this game is to have a very large, open world to explore, far larger than that of Twilight Princess.  We would also have more freedom to complete the game as we saw fit, as dungeons can apparently be completed in any order.  This particular detail is something I had been hearing about for some time, how they have been meaning to change the formula for the series to allow for more freedom.  I suppose now they have decided to put it into practice.  (This is also supposed to be the first Zelda game to feature voice acting.  I can’t say I’m happy about that, but perhaps it will turn out to be a good thing in the end.)
