Cute Mario Kart racer GIFs ⊟

Here’s a non-animated Koopa one, too. These are all courtesy of Paper Beats Scissors, which post a lot of great comics and adorable video game tribute GIFs/sketches — very much worth a follow!

If you open up a bunch of browser windows and load one of these GIFs in each, you can line them up and move them around, pretending their racing and passing each other while making your own sound effects. Great way to spend your afternoon, or get fired after you’re caught goofing off at work.

AREM - rad Metroid-inspired comic ⊟

"WHAT IF Samus from Metroid wasn’t so much a SPACE WARRIOR— but just a girl that really liked her INSTAGRAM and went around taking pictures of space creatures and foliage and gorgeous vistas?"

That’s the premise of AREM, the new 32-page Metroid tribute comic from Corey Lewis (Sharknife). Going off the 8-page preview he posted on his Tumblr, this looks REALLY good. You can grab a digital copy of the full comic from Gumroad for just $2!

Fatal Frame: The Raven-Haired Shrine Maiden ⊟

Even though it’s not a handheld game and the horror series hasn’t made it to the West in some time (not counting the Spirit Camera spin-off), I love Fatal Frame so I had to share this new trailer from the Wii game. This time around, players will use the Wii U GamePad like a camera, moving it around to follow ghosts in order to stun and capture them.

Gematsu offered these details:

"It is set in Hikamiyama, a sacred mountain with a huge lake at its summit from which water gushes abundantly throughout the mountain. It’s a mountain of death, and only those who choose on their own to die go there. They enter the mountain at oumagatoki (the witching hour), when the boundary between the world of the living and the world of the dead is blurred. The game’s story revolves around the concept of water.

The protagonist is named Kozukata Yuuri. She can see those who have been spirited away and captured in the world of the dead and return them to this world. Responding to the requests of those who have been taken, Yuuri visits Mt. Hikamiyama.”

Nintendo will release the Tecmo Koei-developed title in Japan on September 27, a day after the debut of Fatal Frame's live-action film.

BRKfest - three-day chip music festival next week ⊟

Likely the biggest chip music showcase in the Midwest, BRKfest, will return to Cincinnati, OH on July 25-27! The extravaganza will host dozens of bleep bloop artists, including Cheap Dinosaurs, Glomag, Corset Lore, and Chipocrite — see more of the announced acts here. The festival will also offer merch and open mic opportunities.

Though I live in Cincinnati, I somehow managed to never hear about this annual event until last month. Sooooo it’s time time to fix that. I plan to head over to the Chameleon for at least one or two nights — you should too! Click these links for more details about the event and to purchase a pass/shirt. And here’s a BRKfest trailer to get you pumped!

Fantastic Animal Crossing 2DS case ⊟

You don’t see many outstanding Nintendo 2DS cases, so I’m happy to feature this one from Beandog Labs. Look at all those pockets for your tiny cartridges!

This line of 2DS/3DS/XL/Vita custom cases can get a little expensive with prices starting at $50 (Beandog also has sells cheaper pouches), but it includes a microsuede interior to make sure your systems are scratch-free, hidden magnetic closures on the corners, a small ring on the side for charms, your choice of art featured on the design, and the option to have your name or other text printed on the inside.

Check out Beandog Labs’s etsy shop here, and follow its Tumblr here.

The women of Smash ⊟
The original Smash Bros. had a single playable female character with Samus, while Melee and Brawl had three to six, depending on how you look at them (Samus/Zero Suit Samus, Peach, Nana, and Zelda/Sheik). Meanwhile, the new Smash Bros. has 12 (out of 40 characters, including those with female/male options)!
Sure, a few are based on the same character now split into two separate fighters (Zelda/Sheik and Samus/Zero Suit Samus), and four have male counterparts (Villager, Wii Fit Trainer, Robin, and Mii), but that’s still a lot more options for people who prefer to play as female characters!
And there might be even more female fighters revealed soon, as we don’t have the full roster. Japanese magazine CoroCoro will reportedly show all of the characters and stages planned for the 3DS version in its August 12 issue. Thanks to Regina for the pic, and Stef for pointing out the new Smash Bros.'s dramatic increase in women.

I keep watching this Lucina and Captain Falcon fight ⊟

I thought for sure Wii Fit Trainer was going to be my new main when Smash Bros. releases, but today’s trailer has me considering Lucina and Robin (I can’t remember the last time I picked a male character as my go-to in a fighting game?). Watching this over and over might also push me to picking up Fire Emblem: Awakening again and finally completing it.

The GIFs are via PA Spankety, Leafa, mcmmaster, and Ramon.

Kozaki Yusuke art for the new Smash Bros. fighters! ⊟
Even though I’m disappointed that Nintendo went for the predictable characters versus the more interesting (Sully and/or Donnel) to fill Smash Bros.' roster, I ain't even mad because we get new art from Kozaki Yusuke to celebrate today's reveal. Yusuke, if you're not familiar with the name from our past posts, is the incredibly talented character artist who worked on the No More Heroes series, Liberation Maiden, and Fire Emblem: Awakening.

TinyCast 37! Though we set out to talk about Dragon Quest X 3DS and Mighty No. 9, we got sidetracked by Hatsune Miku, Bravely Default spoilers, and Imageepoch’s latest facepalm. We recorded the episode before this morning Nintendo Direct; otherwise, we would’ve dropped in some Blue Hearts for the music to celebrate Kenka Bancho likely coming to the 3DS.

Final Fantasy Explorers looks great ⊟

We got our first look at Final Fantasy Explorers, the MonHun-ish 3DS action RPG with Final Fantasy classes, in this morning’s Nintendo Direct. I picked out some choice bits from the trailer to make GIFs out of, but you can watch the full presentation here.

The game releases in Japan this winter. Nope, we don’t know anything about a Western release yet.
