    • 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).

What are your hopes for E3?

Recommended Posts

Through my time on the Internet, I have grown tired of prediction lists. All too often these lists consist of recycled leaks and games that have already been all but confirmed. My question for you, before this E3, is what are your hopes - what do you wish would come to the Switch (or other systems) but have no real reason to believe it will come to pass?

I am hoping for a Majora's Mask style Breath of the Wild sequel.

I'd like a Wii Sports sequel (which is highly unlikely after Mario Tennis).

I want to hear Taiko Drum Master is getting a North American release (so I don't have to import the drum). 

Finally, I just want a way to play classic Contra and Castlevania on my Switch.

I want to see more Sushi Striker gameplay.   I want the theme song and intro to be prominently displayed at least once.  

I want a new IP for the 3DS besides that.  Maybe a puzzle game?

I want new news on Nintendo Mobile games.  I'd like a new game, perhaps one based on Pikmin?

I really want to take a shot a Contra with my Pro Controller. I think I might be able to finally master those angled shots.

I would be down for a Pikmin mobile game. I have never played Pikmin, and this might be a great way to get started.

donkey kong open world game

N64 style? That’s cool. Do you not like the 2D style games,or do you just want more DK? I tried TF at the NYC store. It seems fun, but I have too big of a backlog at the moment to pick it up. My wife even told me to get it, and I said no. O.o

If my wife ever encouraged me to buy a video game, especially one that just came out with a full price tag, I would have to check her temperature, make sure she hadn't received any blows to the head recently, and ask her what year it is first.

Bloodborne 2 fo sho.

So no BB2, however, that new From Software title looks amazing, and it is called Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. The combination of feudal Japan and  the Bushido way of life with the detail and difficulty applied in the Souls games appears to have been concocted specifically to suit my tastes. I love anything to do with Samurai/Shogun and Souls/Bloodborne are some of my favorites.  It does seem odd that after the release of Nioh, which was a very Dark Souls-ish samurai game, that we are now waiting on the release of two more just like it: Ghosts of Tsushima AND Sekiro. Nioh was amazing and the aforementioned other two look just as cool. It's a good time to be a gamer. :ph34r:
