    • 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).

Honestly, I think/hope Mario Tennis will be dope. Mario Golf was super fun when I had it on my Gameboy Color, so this should be similar, right? At least in the way that a sports related Mario tile can be similar. I also think they will officially announce the Diablo III port, for which I am very excited!

I don’t know how much I would play it, but I think Mario Tennis looks like it’s panning out to be a quality title. I’ll probably borrow it if there is no demo available. 

By their mentioning Tennis in the tweet, could we really expect a “knock your socks off” moment? Is Diablo that moment? I’m not really familiar with the series.

Hopefully they'll announce an exciting first party game to launch this year. I'm getting a little impatient TBH.

I feel the same way. I had made a post about Nintendo needing to make a splash early in the year to keep up its momentum. I understand that it is unrealistic to expect the hights of 2017, but I am just not feeling this lineup so far. It's not even a selfish thing, I would be very happy with a popular game like Smash Bros in spite of the fact that I probably wouldn't pick it up. I just want Nintendo to do well.

Honestly, that last part is for selfish reasons; more popularity/more profits for Nintendo means more fun for me.

This is great! I have to find a way to way to edit this in order to play against my daughter. We will have a lot of fun with this. Maybe I'll just do it old school by cutting it up and pasting it back together.

Be careful! you'll both be disappointed when you can only fill in the free space.

 

One thing that isn't on there, and was a pretty serious rumor this morning, was Mario Odyssey DLC. Apparently a new world that is based on Luigi's Mansion.

I rearranged the card to play on discord with buddies.  Hopefully someone wins now that they're rearranged!

Overall, I found the direct to be quite exciting. While I’m not the biggest fan of Smash Bros, it certainly is the big first-party hit the Switch desperately needed for 2018. I was quite disappointed that Luigi’s Mansion is coming to 3DS instead of the Switch - especially after it had been rumored as DLC for Odyssey. It might be time for me to try out Okami, and I’ll check out the Dark Souls test. I’m not entirely sold on the Splatoon 2 DLC. It looks great, but the price seems a bit steep. Plus I would prefer to play as Cap ‘n Cuttlefish over the octoling. I’m already planning on picking up Hyrule Warriors. 

Oddly enough, the game I am most excited about was not included in the U.S. direct.That would be Taiko Drum Master.
