Are these Smash Bros. commercials corny or amazing? Settle it in Smash! ⊟
Let’s just settle everything in Smash. Disagreements over where to eat, theological debates, multi-generational feuds, border disputes between countries, government elections, child custody battles, etc. — we can settle it all with no items, Fox only, Final Destination.
You can see the other two commercials Nintendo of America put out after the break. The Punch-Out!! one is particularly amusing.
Clearly it is no longer the Year of Luigi ⊟
If it was, there’s no way the blessed brother would get his head stuck on the side of Mega Man’s stage after using his Green MIssile attack.
PlayStation TV will support almost 700 games when it releases to North America next month ⊟
Remember PlayStation TV, the microconsole that lets you play PS Vita games — along with digital PSP, PlayStation, and PC Engine titles you purchased for the handheld via PSN — on your television? I keep forgetting it’s coming out, but the system releases in North America on October 14 and Europe/Australia on November 14.
Sony put out a list of the nearly 700 games the microconsole will support on day one. Spelunky, Danganronpa, Dragon’s Crown, and Persona 4 Golden are on the list, and Minecraft is also planned for support, so I’m happy.
You can preorder the $99.99 console online now. Sony is also releasing a $139.99 bundle that will include a DualShock 3 controller, an 8GB memory card, and The Lego Movie Videogame. Walmart will have an exclusive bundle with all of that, plus Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, for the same price too.
Yes, I want to wear Slime underwear ⊟
These are lots of fun, if you idea of of fun is dressing up your bits in Slime faces. I didn’t see any of these available to purchase at any U.S. online retailer (admittedly I spent only 2 minutes of my Sunday looking), but you can get the booty Slime one — it’s separate from boxer briefs with King Slime on the front — at eBay. Shout-outs to Rahenna for the find!
TinyCast 043 - Demo Bros
Tiny Cartridge • TinyCast
TinyCast 43! Smash Bros is starting to take over the podcast, as we talk here about the new demo. We also spend time with the Pokemon demo, Treehouse radness, and Final Fantasy Theatrythm: Curtain Call.
One of the best Smash images is now a shirt ⊟
You can get one of the most compelling Smash Bros. scenes — Mega Man standing on top of a Gogoat as he prepares to swing a Home-run Bat — as a tee, hoodie, sticker, smartphone case, etc. This is all thanks to Sam Smith, who took the original screenshot, created a pixelart version, and uploaded the design to Redbubble.
Beautiful Legend of Zelda artwork ⊟
The piece comes from Filipino artist Dan Elijah G. Fajardo. It’s up for voting to potentially get a shirt run at Threadless — use the “YW9GG3” code to preorder it and get $5 off if the tee gets printed.
Theatre Cat (goodbye)
"My cat went missing a few months ago, and I tried to push it aside for a very long time. It’s a silly song, but I almost started crying while writing this. Love you, cat."
Azuria Sky has plenty of lovely songs on her SoundCloud, as well as a few EPs on her BandCamp. The Atlanta-based artist is raising money to buy a better mic and a replacement for her broken headphones — buy a shirt from her Teespring campaign and help her out.

Donatello and Raphael Game Boy Colors ⊟
There’s a TMNT NES in there, too — all of this custom hardware comes from Doyle Dean, who is selling the pieces and many others on Etsy.
So we have these Donatello and Raphael GBCs, and we saw that Donatello Game Boy last month… I haven’t seen a Leonardo one yet, but here’s a Michelangelo Game Boy from one of our talented readers, Matt Quinton:
Final Fantasy Explorers adds Cloud, FF “Legends” ⊟
We have a new trailer for Final Fantasy Explorers, Square Enix’s multiplayer action-RPG coming to the 3DS in Japan this December. Along with showing off various classes, the video demonstrates the previously announced Trance / Legends Characters feature, which allows you to temporarily transform into popular characters from the mainline series like Final Fantasy VII's hero Cloud.
You can also see Lightning, Squall, Terra, and silhouettes for other characters in the clip. Watch the new Tokyo Game Show trailer after the break:
Hands are on the new 3DS ⊟
Right now at Tokyo Game Show 2014, hands are touching Nintendo’s new hardware. Gentle fingertips are resting on the lower backs of 3DS XLs. Palms are pressed against the handheld’s face, testing its texture. Thick thumbs are pushing its soft analog bump, nudging the rubber nub in different directions.
Those hands are not ours. We could not afford to send our mitts to Tokyo, small as they may be. Thanks to the keyboard and mice that our fingers are touching right now, though, we are able to communicate to you what those hands across the Pacific are experiencing, via blockquote technology.
Theatrhythm: Curtain Call is out ⊟
I totally forgot the 3DS rhythm game came out this week, but it’s stores, in the eShop, and in boxes that are on their way to your doorstep, if they haven’t already arrived (provided you preordered your Curtain Call copy online).
It’s also in this launch trailer Square Enix put out yesterday:
