The last few years Nintendo has foregone the traditional E3 press conference in favor of a more personable approach, the Nintendo Direct. In those vidoes they showed off and talked about all the games that they had coming up over the next few months to get fans excited for what was to come. This year they’ll be doing something altogether different. They will not be … Continue reading Nintendo’s E3 “Press Conference” Plans Announced

This week me and Nick try another method of communicating with each other as Skype continues to give us problems which means that we really struggle to hear each other and Nick has a weird buzzing…
Otherwise we chat about the brand new Star Fox Zero which came out on Friday, Myles finally finished Twilight Princess, Nick made his Game Boy Advanced SP shiny and we talk about out favourite Kirby games.
DISCLAIMER: There is a buzzing noise for the first 5 minutes of the show. If you find it to annoying skip to about the 5 minute mark and it will have dissapeared. Apologies for this, we’re still trying to find a good solution for communicating.

This week I’ve been playing StarCraft 2: Legacy of the Void
This is a game I have completed twice already but it’s such an amazing game. It’s the last expansion to the StarCraft 2 saga made by Blizzard and it’s a Real Time Strategy game. This is a genre I’ve always enjoyed since the days of Warcraft 3 and Command and Conquer.
For those of you that have heard of StarCraft 2, this expansion is easily, for me, the best one of the series. The storyline behind it is amazing and it ties up loose ends from the days of StarCraft back in the 90’s as well as StarCraft 2 over 5 years ago and Heart of the Swarm, the second instalment to StarCraft 2.
There are lots of jaw dropping moments, the first time you see Ulnar, Zeratuls involvement, The Taldarim and all sorts. The actual gameplay is very easy to pick up also; it gives help during the first few missions and then prompts visually after that should you need it. For those who are used to RTS games it will have a familiar feel in controls. Continue reading “What the NintendPals & Pals Have Been Playing – 16/04/16”
