My Top 5 Video Games of 2016

Another year down, more video games to countdown. There was plenty to play in the year of 2016, but unfortunately I cannot play them all. Here are 5 of my most definite favorites though. Lets start with some honorable mentions:

Street Fighter V: Street Fighter V just missed the cut because it got off to a rough start. It got pushed out to the public a bit early and ultimately was an unfinished product. Capcom has been working hard to fix some of the issues with it and its now shaping up to be a pretty great game. The future of Street Fighter V is looking bright.

Dark Souls 3: I’ve never been that big of a fan of this series, but I was able to have quite a bit of fun with DS3. It wont make me like the Souls games over Bloodborne though. Still hoping a sequel will be made.

And the FINAL honorable mention goes to Final Fantasy XV. FFXV is a fantastic game, but it left more to be desired from me. We do know that Square-Enix has future DLC plans for the game, which is exciting.

Now for the Top 5: Continue reading

Meet the 3 New Starter Pokemon of Sun and Moon

Nintendo hit us with quite a bit of new information about Pokemon Sun and Moon today. New starters were revealed and a release date of November 18th, was given.

The water starter is Popplio, a Sea Lion Pokemon. Rowlet is the owl Pokemon. He is a grass flying type. Last, but not least, is Litten. A flaming hairball spitting fire type cat Pokemon. All 3 starter Pokemon are pictured in the image below.

The new region of Pokemon Sun and Moon is called Alola and is Hawaiian inspired.

Also, shown off today is the box art of both games featuring the Sun and Moon legendaries on the front. The Sun cover features a lion Pokemon, while the Moon box art features a bat looking Pokemon. You can get a better look at those two in the trailer at the top of the page.

Initial response from Pokemon fans seem to favor Litten the most, Rowlet second, and Popplio dead last. I personally agree with the masses. I have started every Pokemon game with a water starter and think Popplio is the worst looking one, but as the day has gone by he is starting to grow on me. I will probably still pick him to keep the water starter streak alive.

What’s you take on the new Pokemon starters? Do you love them or hate them? SOund off in the comment section.

Pokemon Moon and Sun Are Confirmed. Coming Later This Year.

The logos leaked yesterday, but the games have officially been confirmed this morning during the Pokemon Direct. Unfortunately, Nintendo had nothing to show us from the next installment other than some concept art. We don’t know if Pokemon will take place in space or not, since there was no setting shown either. Nintendo will have more information on the next Pokemon games as the year progresses.

Pre-orders for Pokemon Sun and Moon have already been opened from the following retailers:

This will be the first brand new entry to the series since Pokemon X & Y in 2013. Check out the trailer above.

Could New Pokemon Games Be Announced Soon?

thegeekdojo.net

Two logos for what are being called Pokemon Moon and Pokemon Sun have been discovered today in the European Union’s  trademark database. With accompanying logos and not just names of the games, this very well may be what Nintendo will announce during tomorrows Nintendo Direct Pokemon special.

With this small bit of information, could Pokemon be going to space? If so, this could be a very cool change in scenery. If not space then each game will for sure revolve around one Pokemon that gets its power from the moon and the other from the sun. Be sure to tune in to the Nintendo Direct Pokemon special tomorrow at 10am Eastern to find out.
