My balls are lethal: Super Dodgeball Brawlers announced for NDS

3:36 PM on 10.19.2007 // Aaron Linde

I swear to God I won't let this degenerate into a nostalgia-fest, but c'mon -- Super Dodge Ball was awesome. It taught me two lessons that I reflect upon almost daily in my adult life: first, always run and leap before hurling anything; second, Russian dodgeball players will murder you if you dare so much as blink in the field of battle. It was also my first introduction to Kunio-Kun, Technos' long-running series of titles in which combat, sports, and combat sports took center stage.

An update to the dodgeball end of things comes in the form of Super Dodgeball Brawlers for the DS, set to drop in the US by way of Aksys Games in the Spring of next year. The press release issued by Aksys promises custom characters, team attacks, and finally: the option to drop the ball and beat the undying snot out of your opponents with fists and weapons. Y'know, in case the ball thang ain't doing it for you.

Hit the jump for the release and check the gallery for some screenshots of the upcoming title.

You know what the weirdest part about having selective hemophobia is? Getting freaked out by an anime like Elfen Lied but being 100% fine with shit like this.

XCom 2 is a good game that feels it needs to punish the player for not being omniscient. Still, it does have its moments. www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZXZvYRfVFuY

I've reluctantly sauntered back to Hyperdimensia Neptunia: Rebirth 2 after a lengthy hiatus. I'm really not feeling Broccoli nor Red. Maybe Red a little more since she's a waifu protector.

I can't choose simply one waifu for myself, so I've been obsessed with looking up netorare hentai. That way, I know every trick to steal all of your waifus away and keep them all to myself. It's the perfect plan! The only problem: I only have one dick. :(

Well friends, its almost time for my blog to exit the large intestine of page one into the cold, dark bowl of page two, to be flushed and forgotten. Why not throw a fap on there to ease the journey, and give it one last look before its gone?

They put season 2 of Young Justice on Netflix finally. Apparently, if lots of people watch it they'll consider a 3rd season. So do it now! [url]http://comicbook.com/2016/02/03/greg-weisman-teases-hope-for-young-justice-season-3/[/url]
