Katrina set up her tent in my town the other day and offered to tell me my fortune for a nominal fee. Now, I dont usually believe in all this astronomy nonsense or what have you, but I’m telling you, something weird happened there. I was floating in space for a second, and I saw an owl flying backwards, but there was no owl. And a faraway voice sang:
night so dark where are you? come back in my heart so dark so dark
I ran home and slipped into some hot pants. Also made sure my New Leaf character wore shorts that day.
Etrian Odyssey IV owners, here’s one more quest you can send your party to complete in the game, if you don’t mind taking orders from some Tumblr blog’s mascot. Though you’ll need to have reached The Hall of Darkness (6th Maze) to access the quest, if you’re not at that point yet, you’ll have this whole weekend to fight your way there! :oP
I was supposed to post this forever ago, I know, but at least more of you will have played enough of the game to be able to unlock the quest now! Much thanks to @oliviactually and @kamiwoo for their help.
There was a minimal amount of 3DS news in this morning’s Nintendo Direct (you could say the same about interesting Wii U announcements), but I was happy to hear a couple minor but nice items about the eShop.
First, The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons will sell for only $4.99 each during its first three weeks on the storefront (starting May 30). After that, the Game Boy Color releases will go for $5.99 each.
And there’s over a dozen more Game Gear titles coming to 3DS Virtual Console:
I’m not sure about most of you, but when summer starts rolling around for me, I start thinking about what I’ll be listening to on those hot summer nights. All signs are pointing to this summer being the summer of disco (see the brand new Daft Punk album), so here’s a delightfully chunky nu-disco/house track from Demoscene Time Machine, all the way from Stockholm, Sweden.
Ahead of Shin Megami Tensei IV’s release in Japan next week (where Famitsu just gave the 3DS game a 37/40, which probably means nothing or maybe something or whatever), Atlus posted these nice pieces from guest artists like Tomomi Kobayashi, Hideo Minaba, Enami Katsumi, and Mitsumi Inomata.
And over in North America, Atlus put out this new English trailer for the game:
This Guild02 horror/adventure is out in North America and Europe today, priced at $7.99. It’ll take you only 1-2 hours to get through, but that might be a plus to some people. Apparently if you’ve downloaded any Guild01 games in the past (they’re all on sale!), you’ll be able to unlock a bonus scenario.
If visual novels aren’t your thing, there are plenty of other new downloads you can check out — seriously this week is loaded, offering two 3DS Virtual Console titles and at least one quality eShop game. Wii U’s Virtual Console also went HAM, throwing out Super Ghouls’n Ghosts and Super Metroid.
She comes with a question mark accessory. Her hair has a real bell in it. This is just unfair. Good Smile Company’s Nendoroid Isabelle/Shizue perfectly replicates the Animal Crossing: New Leaf assistant, allowing you to relive your first days in Buttocks.
The figurine ships in October, and you can find it at whatever your favorite import toy retailer is. Jlist has preorders up for $42.
So Warner Bros. and 5th Cell announced this morning that they’re releasing a DC Comics-themed Scribblenauts game — featuring over 2,000 characters from the DC label — to 3DS, Wii U, and PC this fall.
The people you’d expect are in there: Superman, the Flash, 33 versions of Batman, 130 Green Lantern Corps. members, etc. I was really curious about whether anyone from DC’s Vertigo imprint would make it in the game, and I had a whole post here detailing how Scribblenauts Unmasked would handle those peeps, but I deleted it all because I didn’t want to get anyone in trouble! :oP
So, uh, enjoy this trailer after the break instead:
