Today wiped me out, waking up early and scrambling to write up stuff from Nintendo’s conference, so I am at last ready to reveal the dark truth behind GameSpite’s new (ish) bloggers: to give me breathing room in which to slack off. But, if you’d like, you’re free to read what I came up with today at work:
- R.I.P. Game Boy 1989-2008: Heartbreaking, but I knew I’d be writing this eulogy sooner or later.
- Punch-Out!! first impressions: Rather obviated by the fact that the trailer this was based on has been released online. But hey, if you’re that tiny percentage of the Internet who would prefer to read rather than watch, this article is for you.
- Sin & Punishment 2 first impressions: Probably the best thing ever to come from VIrtual Console was the fact that Nintendo was forced to recognize that, oh yes, America does want hardcore Treasure shooting goodness. Bangai-O Spirits has restored my faith in the developer’s ability to create a great sequel; this is going to be great.
- Mario & Luigi 3 first impressions: I’m not entirely sure this preview is accurate, but it was written based on brief video impressions. Forgive me if I misinterpreted NIntendo’s cryptic visual missive.
Now: scroll down and read the great commentary everyone else came up with today.
