Mother Brain and Dark Samus Assist Trophy Details:

Mother Brain

Mother Brain from the Metroid series is an enormous Assist Trophy that fires vertically tracking laser rays. Fighters caught in the rays will rack up numerous hits and damage, so it’s better not to be in front of her. By the way, it’s possible to defeat Mother Brain by attacking her.

Dark Samus

An energy-based life-form that bears a striking resemblence to Samus. Dark Samus will fire high-speed and homing missiles at opponents and, if approached, will use strong attacks to launch enemies.

They both look great, though I am a little bit surprised that Dark Samus isn’t a fully playable character in light of recent knowledge.

Smash Bros 3DS Double Pack Coming To Europe
Nintendo Italy has confirmed that you’ll be able to purchase a Super Smash Bros double pack for the Nintendo 3DS.

I was going to go digital, but if this comes to the states it makes perfect sense for us! I read a lot of comments from people that were so confused why they would ever need two copies, and it made me really sad that people are apparently playing Smash alone. Is that a thing?

I also strategically left his laptop with the Shulk trailer opened up in full screen

I know his first message to me is going to be, “who the fuck is Shulk?”

OH MY GOD

I need my boyfriend to wake up and get on the facebook so I can talk to someone about all of these important* nintendo news items, because no one at work cares or understands.  

*probably not that important.

New Nintendo 3DS and XL ⊟

Just when you thought this week couldn’t get any wilder, Nintendo goes and reveals a new 3DS and XL model for Japan. Europe will also receive the new portables next year, according to CVG. If we get a U.S. release date, I expect it to be for 2015.

The new line also has a new stick-ish button on the right side that replaces the need for a Circle Pad Pro, a more powerful CPU, improved 3D viewing angles, Super Famicom-esque colored ABXY buttons, two additional shoulder buttons, NFC support (for Amiibos!), improved battery life (up to 6 hours on 3DS, 7 hours on XL), and HTML5 support for the built-in browser. It also now uses Micro SDs instead of SD cards. Check out the removable back!

The standard system features a 3.88-inch top screen (compared to the 3.53-inch top screen in the original 3DS), while the new XL screen is the same as the old one at 4.88 inches. Both release in Japan on October 11, alongside new charging docks. The standard edition 3DS comes in White or Black for ¥16000 ($154), while the XL in Metallic Blue or Black will go for ¥18800 ($181).

UGHHHHH. 

kyurem:

You can also customize it anytime with new covers.

uggghhhhh.  It’s like the Gameboy Micro all over again but with actual support.  There have been more cover plates announced already than for the entirety of the Micro’s life.

Alright, fine. The leak is real.

Leak may be real, but I am still holding out hope that there are more characters to be unlocked!

DETAILED HISTORY OF THE POWER SUIT

Available on TeePublic

This one took me a very long time to finish. I think I managed to get all of the main Power Suits from the games. I am still kind of obsessed with these circular, side portraits.  Let me know how much you hate it!

Which Samus is your favorite?

This should be a poster

Oh ok fine! I will do it.

I’ve always been particularly fond of the dark suit.

When playing Metroid Prime 2 I remember how much cooler I thought the Light Suit looked then the weird brown thing she wore with the tires on her shoulders.  But when I was laying these out I realized that the dark suit has a much cooler silhouette. Light suit is so compact that it looks like a futuristic football uniform.

I have been having a lot of Nintendo Hype recently, which is really strange considering how long it has been since there have been multiple things in the pipeline that make me giddy.  
In the next few months we have:
Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright 
Hyrule Warriors
Smash Bros 3DS
Mario Kart DLC Pack 1
I am very ready for a new Nintendo Direct.

I’m not dead!

Work is just incredibly busy because all the babies have come back to school. 

OH HEY THERE.  Just being casual at my work function last night.

It’d be cool if she were her old 6’3 powerhouse self 

Damn, she’d kick everyone’s asses

I am in total agreement!  Bring the muscles back!

People who think that Zero Suit Samus’s alt costume is innately sexist need to take a deep breath and sit down.

Isn’t it silly? Sure. I can get why Samus would want to relax at the cantina in this outfit, but it seems like she would think twice before going into battle with so much skin exposed.  Girls gonna get laser blasted once and be done for.  

Were there better choices for an alt costume? Uh, not particularly.  In every other occasion that Samus has been seen out of her power suit (other than zero suit) she decided it was beast to go out on the town in a bikini bottom. The zero mission/fusion outfit is the most athletic.  While SUPER SUPER SUPER short, she is in fact wearing shorts, and her top side is fully covered with her fancy leather sport bra thing.  Let’s just ignore how much chaffing is probably going on and focus on the idea that you could probably move around in these clothes.

But isn’t it just fan service for teen boys? I guess, if it is getting you revved up? But it makes me a bit sad to think that we live in a society in which a female’s stomach and thighs are too sexual to be displayed? Dear lord, reel it in Samus! I shan’t look towards your shoulders. Haven’t you any decency! 

But the boobs! the butt! Look. The boobs and the butt were there, bro.  The silhouette is unchanged, this is just a reskin.  She isn’t doing anything sexual with them.  Just having them can’t be so offensive to people can it?

Ugh but Samus isn’t a strong female anymore! Seriously, what are you even bothered about now?  While I do have strong feelings about Samus having her high heel running shoes on, I think it is kind of ridiculous to be up in arms about this.  She is still nimble.  She can still shoot the fuck out of you.  She isn’t hindered by her femaleness. 

Sakurai just said it was made by a woman to make it ok even though it isn’t! I agree that part was a bit weird, but you have to remember that there is a systematic problem with female characters being created through the male gaze.  Like instant-objectification.  But even when you take that out of the equation you can still end with the same conclusion; you can still create a cool, sexy character. 

But I AM up-in-arms! Listen, the bottom line is: Samus can wear whatever the fuck she wants.  She could wear a thin strip of tape and still kick your ass, because she, quite frankly, cannot be bothered by your ideas of what is appropriate attire.  She isn’t doing it for you, so please get over yourself.
