happy_2013

Alba and I would like to wish you all a very Happy New Year. As I mentioned on the Christmas post it is has been a fantastic year for the site, and that is thanks to all of you. 2013 is gearing up to be a great year for gamers in the West with Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Fire Emblem: Awakening on the Nintendo 3DS and Rayman Legends and Pikmin 3 for Wii U. What games are you most looking forward to playing in 2013?

– Sickr and Alba

  1. All of those, Luigi’s Mansion, The Last of Us, Dead Space 3 (maybe, we’ll see if it just turns out to be Resident Space 6), Lords of Shadow 2 and 3DS, yeaah there’s a lot xD

    • It’s developed by Ubisoft, and after the success of ZombiU and AC3 on the nintendo beast, it is coming to our eight generation console later, with all DLC.

      • I’m a little skeptical about Watch Dogs all together.
        “Oh i can hack into all these networks and use technology as a weapon. But give me a gun and i’m John McLain, yippiekiyay motherfucker”.
        Just seems illogical. Let’s sneak in, and be incognito but then make cars crash and blow up and shoot guys in the face. Worse stealth than Assassin’s Creed, which explains alot.

  2. The main ones I’m looking for are the two 3DS games you mentioned being Fire Emblem: Awakening and Animal Crossing: New Leaf, because they’re some of my favourite game series’.

  3. Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate and Animal Crossing: New Leaf!!!

    Also, why are people forgetting so much about MH all the time? That game is epic and should be thrown into everyone’s faces so more people will go buy and try it ;)

    • I have never played a Monster Hunter game.
      It’s strange, I seem to be having trouble getting hyped for it. Does it have Local Coop?

      Like

      • It does, the 3DS game can play together with other local 3DS+game or a Wii U with the game. Also the Wii U has online play, the 3DS version doesn’t though. But you can move your save file back and forward from the 3DS to the Wii U version, which is pretty awesome.

        • If it has 3DS Local Co-op, and looks A LOT better than Heroes of Ruin, I’ll certainly buy it.
          IDK, Heroes wasn’t horrible, maybe it was more the glitches and repetitiveness, I really wanted to like HoR, but I don’t.

          I really Hope Monster Hunter is better. I will wait for some user reviews first.

          • Monster Hunter is HECK a lot better than Heroes of Ruin. I’ve played several earlier games from this series and put hundreds of hours in every single game. This game has heck a lot of content so it’ll be sure to keep you busy for quite sometime as well.

            Like

          • Mhhhm. I didn’t hate HoR. I actually put about 35 hours into the little bugger. But it was just so far from being what it should of been. I just hated the way you never ever ran out of health or magic potions. Maybe you had to use about 8 out of 20 on each boss and then you smash some generic scenery and get them back straight away.
            I also hated the nasty framerate and glitches.

            Other than that is was fun. 6.5/10

            Monster Hunter tri for wii is a 9.5/10 beast. And I presume MHU will be for wiiu too. The main thing I am excited for is just playing the game with a proper (1080p) resoloution now. The game is gorgeous. And now it gets the clarity it always deserved….

    • There are more people hyped for monster hunter 3 Ultimate than you think, read the posts below yours. Remember Sony drones shall buy either the Wii U version or 3DS since playstation consoles lost the rights of monster hunter to Nintendo.

      Like

      • I know the people are there, but a lot of news websites seem to not really mention the game that often. Like they’ll post a list of upcoming 3DS/Wii U games and MH isn’t even in the list. Also, when I posted this message I was the only one posting about MH here :P.. so yeah might have spoken a bit too early.

        Needless to say I’m excited to see the number of people who want this game in general growing – though I’m just a MH hardcore junkie and would like it to become insanely popular so we never have to be unsure about the next titles coming to the west ever again. :D

  8. Happy and prosperous New Year! Alba and Sicr it’s the West, Middle East, Africa, Island central and south America that are nintendo. I have friends from all regions, Nintendo is loved by more people than even nintendo itself knows :). MONSTER HUNTER 3 ULTIMATE!

  9. WII U 32GB model is $400 and 8GB model is $350 ( Look at amazon.com [NEW]).
    I feel like I am going to get riped off by nintendo at those prices.( Do not start saying ps3/xbox is more outragous in prices as they at least came with larger HDD’s and offerings).
    Instead of lowering the prices, all they did was increase them $50 higher.
    At least PS VITA will have a price cut in 2013.
    I am always woundering if nintendo will release 64GB models.
    And the 3DS eshop have overrated user rated 5 star games that do not deserve it ( I am noticing that all user rated products are either 1 star or 5 stars, but never in between).
    Also nintendo needs to price cut 3DS digital eshop games.

  10. Since I only own the Wii U now and have an old outdated PC, my gaming knowledge has fallen to the wayside.

    From reading up and watching Youtube videos, I’m really excited for Pikmin 3, Wonderful 101, Monster Hunter and Aliens: Colonial Marines. The lego game seems promising considering that I’ve never played a lego series game before.

    Lastly, this is purely speculation however going off of one of the previous E3s there was hinting at the possibility that EA might produce a Battlefield game for the Wii U in the future which I would absolutely love. Sadly, I’ve missed out on the series since BF2 on PC and thoroughly enjoyed in then. So assuming this is coming, I can’t wait!

      • I don’t think consoles could have really done this new Sim City justice. At least not any consoles that were on the market back when they first started developing the game.

        And Until Dawn is a PS3/Move game. Horror/Survival. Kind of like one of those dumb teen horror films; But I think it looks interesting enough, from the gameplay previews I have seen of the game:

  17. HAPPY NEW YEAR Sickr AND Alba!
    I love this site. You’ve kept me informed of all things Nintendo, and I don’t even need magazines as long as I’ve got this site to inform me of things. This (and 2 other people) are the only ones I’m following on Twitter MyNintendoNews is the only reason I go back several times a day.

    This is the year I’ll finally get a Wii U, Pikmin 3, Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon. But I hope Nintendo releases a cool special edition 3DS XL soon, because I’m holding out on buying any 3DS games until I get an XL. I don’t wanna ruin any games by playing them on my small 3DS. I can’t wait to see what games Nintendo is working on this year. As far as games goes, I think it’s gonna be a great year. Much better than 2012.

  18. Now that it’s 2013, I’d like to ask you (Hideki Kamiya) a question. Do you want to start on/reboot Star Fox or Murasame Castle first when you get done with Wonderful 101 and Bayonetta 2?
