    • I finally got around to finishing Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn and I have to say I had a lot of fun with it. I don't mind the crude, verging on racist, humor and the play style is reminiscent of early 90s beat 'em ups. There's even a move where you hit A to land a size 22 kick that launches the enemy straight into the screen just like TMNT IV: Turtles in Time. Shaq Fu never takes itself seriously, poking fun at crowd funding and the game itself. All of the old beat 'em up tropes are present and accounted for; endless enemies, random things in the background and foreground to smash, the odd object you can use as a weapon until it breaks, etc. At $20 USD in the eshop I think that the price is a bit steep for the amount of game time you'll get from it, if you play it on easy you can walk through this game in one sitting and I don't see much replay value in it. Harder difficulties does make it a longer process though. There is a DLC pack called "Barack Fu"  that opens up a new story line where you play as President Obama, the humor continues as one of "Dirty Barry's" moves lets you call in a "Peace Prize" drone strike. Nintendo's eShop says it released on June 5, but I can't seem to find it. The game's website says that physical copies come with a code to download a "bonus game" later this month. I haven't seen what that game is yet but I would suspect that it is the DLC so if you really want to fight as Barack Obama the physical version might save you a bit of money. Overall I give Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn a solid 5 out of 7 Size 22 Reebok Pumps. Pick it up if you find it on sale, and you enjoy old school beat 'em ups (think TMNT IV style with some off color humor and a stupid plot).

So, this is just an extension of Pokemon GO? I hate to crap on those who are stoked about this, but I feel like this is super duper lame.

I sure hope it's its own game for the most part with Pokémon Go being just an extension of it. I think it might be a smart move and may make Pokémon Go more relevant in the future especially if it can tie in to your main Pokémon game.

Time will tell I hope.

I have a friend who's only experience with Pokemon has been through Pokémon GO. (I know right) This is a good game for the type of people like that as a sort of gateway into the main series in time for 2019.

It seems to be super accessible.  Newcomers to the series will eat this up, and will want more.  Series vets will likely like the game, but criticize certain aspects of it (if not most).  Some will call it trash.  I mean, there are no battles with wild Pokemon.  It's all catching (with various options available).  I don't know how you feel about that, but I like the streamlined process.  I just hope it's somewhat deeper than Pokemon GO's system.  As much as I like the action of throwing the balls (and its responsiveness), I hope there's more to it than that.

Hope they give the other generations some love soon, I mean there are plenty of good gen 1 pokemon but i'd like to see some from the other generations get some spotlight.

I know nothing about Pokémon and most likely won’t pick up any of the new games. I have Pokémon Go, but I’ve never played it. Nevertheless, I need the Poké Ball Plus.

This will most likely be an easy game for Pokémon go players, but it still looks cool to me. I have played Pokémon for a while and I think the game looks good. I’m also looking forward to transferring my Pokémon from go into let’s go

I agree, I think Pokemon Lets Go will encourage me to get back into Pokemon Go as I'll actually be working on my team whilst I am out and about and be able to bring that progress back to the main game!
