Nintendo is going to have a huge presence at PAX Prime

8:30 PM on 08.21.2013 // Hamza CTZ Aziz

Plus Pokemon X & Y will be playable!

Nintendo will be at PAX Prime, and wow, they're actually going all out for PAX. I mean, their presence has always been good, but this year it's huge! Here's the games that will be playable for the Wii U:

Super Mario 3D World, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, The Wonderful 101, Bayonetta 2, Pikmin 3, Rayman Legends, Sonic Lost World, Shovel Knight, Armillo, and A World of Keflings.

And here's their 3DS lineup:

Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, Mii Force, Mii Plaza Flower Town, Mii Plaza Warrior’s Way, Mii Plaza Monster Manor, Mii Plaza, Scribblenauts Unmasked, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate, Sonic Lost World, Summer Carnival ’92: RECCA, Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse from WayForward, and Retro City Rampage.

Zelda fans can visit a special lounge that will focus on the two upcoming games, where you can also participate in a special quest tasking you to find four things around the convention center. You'll be given a t-shirt inspired by the crayfish design Link wears in Wind Waker for completing the four challenges. Also there will be a Pokemon lounge for all things Pokemon.

Lastly, Platinum's Hideki Kamiya will be hosting a Inside The Wonderful 101 panel on September 1 at 5PM in the Pegasus Theater located at the Sheraton hotel. You'll also be able to buy Wonderful 101 two weeks early in a special retail space Nintendo is setting up. Nintendo will have assortment of games, consoles, and other merchandise on sale too.

The 1.10 patch for The Witcher 3 is out. Downloading for PS4. Pretty excited to see the changes, especially since it said the damn swamps in Velen would finally see performance enhancements, along with like a million other areas. So good! Yes?

Just got confirmation that a feature I spent way too long writing is going up on Sunday. Not a bad way to start the weekend off, though I wish I had a slot on a weekday.

PB&J sandwiches. Saturday morning cartoons. A blanket. Ominous sounds coming from the next room. Blood seeping from the walls. A dark figure standing in the corner, staring, watching. Darkness, everywhere. Such darkness. This is childhood.

Spiel was mightily expensive. Holy shit... Good thing I didn't bring more money with me, too. Saw enough stuff I'd love to own.

Trialling PS Now - review to come later - has reminded me of a piece of little-reported PS3 news. Owners of hacked PS3s could turn any PS2 game into a 'Classics' title and run them on a bog-standard PS3 with few issues.

Wanna ask a question for tomorrow's PStoid? You still have time! While you're at it don't forget to ask one for Riobux too!!

I caught a reflective mumbling about MGSV's open structure and how it doesn't sit well with me, to be published whenever I litter it with images.

I cast my little worm in to the pond for a topic to try to make a blog about today. I fish fish fish but nothing bites bites bites.

I cracked and bought Final Fantasy Dimensions on Android last night. Half off sounded like just the right price, though I wish this came out on 3DS or even the Vita but at least it gives me something to do on the porcelain throne!

Those N64-era THQ wrestling games have actually held up really well over the years. Take that, nostalgia!

Heading off to Spiel in a bit. A whole lot of games there, just of the cardboard variety. I love me some board games.

Finally finished The Witcher 3. Definitely one of the best games I've played in my 30 years or so of gaming. Now onward to Ground Zeroes/Phantom Pain.
