I dunno about you but I'm fucking ready for some TRUMPETS!



Let's not mince words: I'm excited to hell for the Ruby/Sapphire remakes. Sapphire was my favorite generation despite the horrifying map padding by forcing you to surf and dive through 60% of the game, not to mention this puts you in constant exposure with wild encounters. But we have Gen III to thank for the introduction of abilities, natures, weather metagame, and the best terrorist organization ever, Team Magma/Aqua. Yeah, split the dimensions asunder Team Galactic? What a cliche supervillain plot. Team Magma and Aqua had more relatable evil aspirations by being discriminatory against an entire class of organisms, whether they were land based creatures or water based creatures. They then decide to either raise the continental land masses or flood the world in favor of their chose bias. Hardcore.



If you've missed it, there's definitely something... off, about Groudon and Kygore in their covers. Obviously, though, when you think about it, it can only be one thing: mega evolutions. And this snowballs into more possibilities. After all, as remakes, they won't expand the national dex. But mega evolutions don't count towards the dex number. For the purposes of organization and classification, mega evos are just powered up forms of their base forms. Finally, Mega Sceptile and Mega Swampert will join Mega Blaziken. They'll need serious advantages to even come close to how Mega Blaziken crushes brick walls and steel bars with its arms and legs.

The fun on the 3DS doesn't stop there (my god, how on Earth is the 3DS just doing ok with everything going on it?). I finished Kirby Triple Deluxe this part weekend and I have to say, this may be my favorite Kirby game yet (besides Superstar. Nothing surpassed Superstar). Dare I say it, this game actually got challenging at time later on in the levels. It was never crushingly difficult. It never even came close to Mario levels of challenge. They even brought back the Superstar amount of depth in each power with different directional combination attacks and moves. Fighter is a classic power and example with staple moves like machine gun punch, rising break (shoryuken!), and the divekick (now on Steam). Ninja is probably my favorite but Archer is so damn flexible. I'm still working on a blog draft but I wish Suplex came back from Superstar. Instead, we get Beetle, which has the spirit of Suplex but not the mechanics. Dammit, I don't want to get in close and do some grappling! I want to send myself hurtling towards my hapless foes so that I can grab them with some sticky fingers, ready for the most bone crunching pile driver ever!

And I'm still in the process of 100%'ing it too. With the secret modes you can unlock that I probably shouldn't spoil, there's still a lot of kick left in the damn game. It just won't die! Those lucky European's get Dreamland 2 for free, complete with animal friends. Makes me wish Dreamland 3 was available on eShop for 3DS so I can just get back together with my old buddy Nago and crack some skulls with some random ass powers like stone or spark.



Also, the Rebirthening is coming along swimmingly. I got my card today! And if you just wanna tl;dr the thread and see the completed cards so far, just check out the Destructoid Cards: the Rebirthening tumblr! Just look at SuperMonk4Ever's card. 4 HP but obviously high evade rate. That slippery devil!

Lets Do Launch

In case you've been living under a rock or just waiting on NieR: Automata (thanks for the delay Amazon!), Nintendo just launched its newest console. Whether it's a success or a failure remains to be seen, but many people have bought themselves this shiny new console for their home. It's been a while since we've seen this sheer amount of excitement over a console, and a Nintendo one, no less, considering the amount of goodwill they probably have since the Wii U.

But the QP has been having endless buzz over the Switch, despite concerns over hardware faults in the Joy-Con or cheaply produced docks. Personally, I'd love one despite the lack of software on day one. I mean, I could play Zelda while at work. And not a handheld Zelda either. A proper, huge console-designed Zelda! Asides from that, it's all about the love of having shiny new tech in your hands. So that's what this month's bloggers wanted will be about: console launches, the hype and the release into getting it into your hands.

To participate, title your blog "Let's Do Launch: [your title here]" and use the "Bloggers Wanted" tag, and in a general sense, talk about your favorite launches. We've had the PS4 and Xbone years back but were we genuinely excited or just looking forward to it? Or how about where you were when the GameCube released? Don't worry too much about celebrating the exact launch date, either. I still clearly remember the time I got my Sega Genesis from Costco, complete in a bundle with Ecco the Dolphin and Donald Duck's QuackShot.

Don't worry about being positive or timely. Did you grow up to see the Vectrex launch? Go ahead and enlighten us youngins about how much of a love/hate relationship you may or may not have. Still rocking an Ngage? I'm sure you are. So how did it feel to purchase such a mistake of the universe? Go ahead and let us know, and eventually, we'll get around to promoting it to the front page!
