I have mixed feelings about the reveal of Greninja. On one hand, Greninja is a cool Pokemon, and it was awesome that he got picked by his strength rather than the strength of his branding. Think of it this way I mean: who asked for Lucario? But he was picked because he was the the poster child for  Pokemon Diamond/Pearl and he headed his own Pokemon movie, Mewtwo was the original king of ubers back then, Pikachu is the de facto Pokemon, and Pokemon Trainer's Pokemon were the original starters. Charizard was even picked up because since X and Y's debut, he's been getting a lot of care and attention from Gamefreak recently. But Greninja? He's just a cool ninja. No movie, no representation. He's just been chugging along as a popular scout/lead with Protean to lend it some offensive punch.



On the other hand, he looks like another Mewtwo clone and not even the first one to do it.

There will obviously be some differences like Lucario being able to mega evolve in battle and Greninja being obviously faster and different physical movesets but I'd rather it go further then just what they do to every Fox/Captain Falcon clone they gut out. Even though I still prefer certain shotos over other counterparts, we still wish the similarities went further than the skin deep details. Three people had Landmaster final smashes after all.

But the Smash Direct very much supercharged my enthusiasm for the Nintendo brand. So much that it's too the point where I caught myself thinking of buying a Wii U for Smash Wii U. Obviously it would be a safe purchase, being the cheapest console with an expansive library with backwards compatibility. The BC might be the biggest thing too because I'm a poor, unfortunate soul who hasn't played Okami so buying a Wii U might be important. Not to mention giving Skyward Sword a fair shake, along with Wii U titles like Super Mario 3D World.

Of course, I already have a 3DS and am very much excited to get that as early as this summer. Very vague but very hype inducing.

As of now though,  mot of my time has been going to FTL: Advanced Edition though. I'm obsessed with unlocking more ships because frankly, unlocking ships is a feat unto itself. So many factors have to line up for certain unlocks. I mean, unlocking the Crystal Cruiser needs four random events to line up, in order, before you hit sector 8. Even something like the Mantis cruiser needs a bit of set up to working.

But I'm definitely enjoying the new equipment. Mind control is one of my favs, especially when combined with a slug crewmember who can psychically keep tabs on enemy crew. Screw the ship by mind blasting the pilot and watch the chaos that ensues that you can just drink up like a calorie crazy cat.



Watch out for a guide cause I really want to write one with a great headline I thought up. It only happens so often!
