Always bet on Ganondorf

"Always bet on Ganondorf," you said. I agree. Does that look like a face you'd want to mess with? And those teeth! Nintendo has uploaded a few more "secret fighter" galleries for Super Smash Bros. which you can find over here...

How Smash Bros. mechanics could be used in a sex game photo
How Smash Bros. mechanics could be used in a sex game
by Jonathan Holmes

[Sup Holmes is a weekly talk show for people that make great videogames. It airs live every Sunday at 4pm EST on Youtube, and can be found in Podcast form on Libsyn and iTunes.]

Last Sunday on Sup Holmes we welcomed Nina Freeman to the program (full episode here). We talked about a lot of stuff, including the influence of Final Fantasy X on her work, her mother's feelings about her love of  technology, building fan sites as a teen, her upcoming game about romance while playing a MMO, bringing back FMV, how to use game mechanics to work as metaphor for interpersonal interactions, and a lot more. 

She is one of the few people I know who you can look at straight in the eyes and say "Smash Bros. is kinda like sex, isn't it?" and have them nod with a serious smile and say "Yeah, totally." I know this from experience. This was a unplanned moment on the live stream that could have gone horribly wrong had I been talking to someone else, but with Nina, it was just another beat in a larger conversation. 

Thanks again to Nina for appearing on the show, and if you want to see the show live, we'll be here at 4pm EST with Roel Ezendam of Rage Squid games (Action Henk) to the program.

Smash Bros. clones didn't 'increase required man-hours'

Smash Bros. for the 3DS has been out for a week now, and while reception has been generally positive, there are naturally going to be some gripes after the hype dies down -- fighting Little Mac on a totally flat course, 3DS n...

Super Smash Bros. Wii U's trophy shop looks a lot cooler than the 3DS one

The fact that the trophy shop was bland on the 3DS version of Super Smash Bros. isn't really worth complaining about for me, but this new screenshot of the Wii U version is definitely a vast improvement.  In his pic...

Smash Bros. Amiibo up on Amazon for $13 a pop

The Super Smash Bros. Amiibo figures are up on Amazon and, as much as I try not to get excited about toys, they look pretty alright.  I will just take solace in the fact that the only piece of nerd junk that crowds my desk, a little two inch Luigi that I bought for one dollar (not 13!) in Chinatown (not the movie!), is better.

Damn it, Pac-Man, I believed in you!
