What do you want from Nintendo's NX? + From the Source: Nintendo... eShop action + TellTaleGames goes hard!


New, old, discounted... eShop action! I don't want to overlook the downloadable games here (because there are some good ones... and variety is good), this isn't to minimize them... but I really do hope Nintendo brings a new energy and perspectives for the NX. 3rd party can take audiences where ever they go... (as a group) because the release windows are consistent as they bring their own individual heat.

1st party is... "stuck" in a sense (where they are unless they pull a... Sega), so there has to be more fire with the hardware they bring in order for 3rd party to show their stuff just as much as 1st party. Am I wrong? Check out our Poll on Google+ and we will be giving Nintendo the results... because at the end of the day they are seeking major success with their console, so even if you don't have to listen to every single little thing, it doesn't hurt to take heed to what gamers are looking for in console(s).

The Bat is back in action... brought to you by... TellTaleGames!


I don't know about you but i'm extremely interested in this game... because TellTale is stellar at telling awesome tales (look at what they did what the Walking Dead... I mean, come on). The bat definitely deserves to receive a bit of that action... and I want to see how they rope gamers in making us hungry for season after season. The world of BATMAN has enough going on to keep us entertained for quite some time. You can expect this game on nearly every platform except for Nintendo systems.


And oh... man, it's back, TellTale on TellTale action following up one bomb with another like KA-BOOM w/ a side of KA-BAAM. The Walking Dead is back with a season 3 and even though my nerves are not completely ready for the twists and turns that TellTale is so good at delivering. I'm ready and I look forward to see how things are going with not so little anymore Clementine... who is now in her teen years. 


AJ, the little baby (aka Rebecca's son) from season 2 is no longer an arm baby, we have a little tyke on our hands... a bit younger than Clementine was in season 1. Man, where does the time go? 

Either way, I just hope that my heart isn't broken in season 3 (I won't give spoilers about past seasons, but tragedy after tragedy is nothing new in this series). 

I will need Blu's fruit snacks nearby... to calm my nerves. :p
