Twilight Midna, Postman Link, and Ilia Zelda star in the new Hyrule Warriors DLC

The new Hyrule Warriors DLC is looks like a lot better of a deal than the previously released Master's Quest pack, which our own Chris Carter had relatively high praise for. Seeing Midna in her more human-like form is a pret...

Want a free game? Tell us how gaming makes you feel less alone

Today is Thanksgiving in the United States, a holiday that normalizes the sin of gluttony by couching it under the guise of "an activity that enhances a general feeling of love and togetherness." It's a day to eat and to fee...

Rodea: The Sky Soldier's trailer is lively to celebrate its revival

Smash Bros. is the USA's fastest-selling Wii U game

Nintendo sent a boastful little email our way this morning, touting Super Smash Bros. as the fastest-selling Wii U game ever. At least so far as the United States is concerned, anyway. Americans purchased more than 490,000 un...

Meet the creator of Sportsball, the 2nd best 4-player combat game on the Wii U photo
Meet the creator of Sportsball, the 2nd best 4-player combat game on the Wii U
by Jonathan Holmes

[Update: Show's over folks! We'll have the rerun up later in the week. Here's the latest Sportsball strategy profile in the meantime.]

The new Smash Bros. is fantastic, but it's not the only 4-player arena-based competitive combat game on the Wii U right now. There's also Sportsball, one of Nintendo's "Nindies", a cross between BaraBariBall (Sportsfriends) and Joust. While I can't recommend it as a single player experience (yet), I can wholeheartedly endorse it with 3 or more players. If you're looking to take a quick break from hitting your friends so hard that they explode, you could do worse that riding a giant peacock and dunking on them instead. 

Today on Sup Holmes we're going live with Auston Montville of Too DX, creators of Sportsball. We'll be talking about the game's Smash Bros. influence, what it's been like working with Nintendo, the struggles of independent development, and a lot more. We'll also be giving away codes for Sportsball and for Sunburn, the delightful outer space, suicide-by-sunfire game for iOS from former Sup Holmes guests. Tune in at 4pm EST for all of the fun. All of it.

How a little girl from Lebanon went on to develop games in Japan photo
How a little girl from Lebanon went on to develop games in Japan
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 week on Sup Holmes, we did a lot of stuff. First off, we launched a contest for a signed CD by famed Mega Man composer Manami Mastumae. You can still enter if you want. Check out the show for details. 

Fittingly enough, this week's guest was Mastumae-san's friend Dina Abou Karam, the community manager for Comcept (Mighty Number 9). Dina is my new definition of a hardcore gamer. Against all odds, her love of videogames has driven her down a life path that's been packed with unlikely and amazing events. From a little girl playing bootleg copies of JRPGs and gold farming in Final Fantasy VII to developing an autobiographical game about naked people in Japan and working for Mega Man cocreator Keiji Inafune, it's always been videogames for Dina. They are what excite her, motivate her, and fascinate her. Her passion is palpable and infectious. It's no wonder that Comcept chose her to be the online face of the company.

We talked about a lot of things -- Bayonetta 2's awesome design and mismatched marketing, Dina's first commercially released game (Plushed),  the first game she ever remembers playing (a weird monkey-infused version of Tetris), videogame enthusiast culture in Lebanon, and a lot more. I hope this isn't the last time Dina appears on the show. I imagine she'll be in this industry for a long time. It will be exciting to see what she creates next.

The Super Smash Bros. for Wii U challenges unlocking guide photo
The Super Smash Bros. for Wii U challenges unlocking guide
by Jonathan Holmes

Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U was released yesterday. If you've picked up the game, you've likely put a few hours into it already, though chances are a lot of that time has been spent on multiplayer. Sadly, there isn't too much content to unlock with Vs. matches alone. If you're looking to start digging into the rest of the game's content, this is the guide for you!

The challenges are numbered in an order starting from the upper left hand corner, going to the right and then down. If you need help with any of these specific challenges, let us know. I've gotten through about 71 of them myself, and would be more than happy to give you a few tips. That said, I could use a few tips myself. If you can show me how to beat the "Kirby's Crazy Appetite" Event on Hard, I will reward you with a hand drawn thank you card of the Misfits cover of your choosing. 

Note, a lot of trophies that are common in the Smash Bros. for the 3DS are now hard to get unlockables in the Wii U version. If you're content to have Sin and Punishment's Saki Amamiya on your handheld and not your home console game, you may be better off, as clearing All-Star with every character on Hard isn't something that just anybody is capable of doing. 

Good luck!
