If you people don’t already know, or just joined us for the first time (and in that case welcome to the Video Game Armada – the bar is open) I’m the biggest fan boi of Nintendo – I mean they brought gaming back from the brink and for that I’ll always be grateful. Even while they’re being ignored by alot of 3rd party developers right now; Nintendo is on a upswing thanks to their fall line up and their comedy based video. Today I show one such video detailing how the president of Nintendo of America, Reggie Fils-Aime, announced of the new (well not so new now) Super Smash Club for Canada. All I got to say is only in Nintendo of America… Er, Canada.
Conan O’Brien + Super Smash Bros Wii U = Win
So the good news it that Conan O’Brien is doing another well done Clueless Gamer segment where this time he reviews the just released Watch Dogs title from ubisoft. The bad news is that they decided to push back the release date on the Wii U version til the end of the year for some bizarre reason; as such this is as close to Watch Dogs as I’m going to get til December (seriously Ubisoft what the fudge). Fortunately Conan makes lemonade out of lemons in this skit, proving that a clueless gamer is truly unbiased because it’s all the same confusing crap to him.
Ladies and gentleman I don’t think of myself as that guy who wants to have the biggest or best to be happy, but to have just enough to enjoy my games and live well. I have an average sized HDMI flat screen TV for my three systems and all of that makes of my entertainment spending right there; outside of the odd fast food run and movie. Never did I want anything bigger because I was happy with what I got. Well Team Coco is at it again proving that bigger isn’t always better but it can be quite epic as they was able to play random games on AT&T Stadium’s diamond vision screen in Dallas, TX. It was glorious people and a record somewhere I’m sure: biggest screen that played video game on it, or something. So people if ever become rich, ether by the lottery (which I don’t play) or finding the lost treasures of Atlantis the first thing I’m going to do is take Conan’s advice and rent out the AT&T Stadium and play Titanfall and CoD all night long. I know it’s obvious but I can’t figure out how get Pokémon Y on that big thing.
There are loads of laughs and even laughing out loud, as you check out Conan O’Brien as he and Aaron review the WWE 2k14 video game for the Xbox 360.
Clueless Gamer, a regular feature of Team Coco (Conan O.), commands quite a few regular subscribers, over 1.5 mill.
Conan had just over 1.6 million views for this segment with thousands of comments from his viewers, both good and not so good.
You would think with such a massive following and with his regular offerings, that there would be some element of sanity or even a credible review. . .WRONG, hey it’s Conan we’re talking about. Not only are his reviews funny, profane and awful, Conan as the title alludes to, has no clue how to even play video games!
His fight with Kane, while he plays Sheamus, contain moves only he could have managed to come up with.
Conan’s successful style is attributed to randomly hitting keys on the controller. Conan has created a pretty spiffy character though, with an even cooler entrance, complete with special moves, GO Conan!
Well take a look, you wrestling fans and gamers, go nuts and be sure to leave Conan a comment or two to grow on.
The Adventure of Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog (Sonic SatAM to some), Sonic Underground, Sonic X. These are the great four Sonic the Hedgehog cartoons. Each one having their fans and detractors (Me? I’ve been an Adventures’ baby since the beginning) but they’ve been entertaining enough for kids and gamers alike. However its been a while since we seen the fastest thing alive on our screens in a non-console capacity. Enter Sonic Boom, a new CGI animated show featuring Sonic, Tails, Amy and super sized Knuckles. Details are a little light but it does seem closest to the Adventure of Sonic the Hedgehog with a little SatAM thrown in. Wait! There’s more! They are also release Sonic Boom the video game for Nintendo 3DS & Wii U; those titles will serve as prequels to the show. So Sega seems to be trying the Marvel method of banding this time, will it generate the next generation of Sonic fans or will this gamble not paid off. I don’t know but I’m willing to give it a shot – stay tuned.
April Fool’s day is great! It’s the one day of the year where you can openly deceive anyone you want without being labeled a jerk afterward. Usually I try to create an original April Fools post for the site, but this year I decided to post the top five April 1st ‘announcements’ I found on the internet because they’re way funnier than anything I could come up with. Enjoy!
5. Super Duper Street Fighter 4
Street Fighter 4 is easily Capcom’s greatest IP since they gave Mega Man the ol’ heave ho for some odd reason. As such they try to keep it going as long as possible by releasing ‘new’ versions like Super Street Fighter 4 or the upcoming Ultra Street Fighter 4. Even though fans like myself will always buy the new version because, ‘Hey! It’s Street Fighter!’, but we all know that their doing. Well Capcom isn’t going to let the fan base stop their roll as they just announced the next Street Fighter 4 title – all I got to say its Duper.
4. Titanfall: Optimus Prime DLC
Titanfall, for all my nitpicks, is still holding strong as a multiplayer title to while away the hours; so naturally they’re going to strike while the iron is hot with some DLC that is just prime. That’s right, the leader of the heroic Autobots will be players next Titan. Now although Optimus is a peaceful, diplomatic being when the freedoms of all sentient live forms are bring threaten he’ll throwdown like any giant death machine. My only complaint is where’s Megatron?! It ain’t a true metal on metal warfare without the brutal master of the Decepticons. Oh well – I guess we’ll have to wait til the next DLC for meggsy.
3. Blizzard Outcasts: Vengeance of the Vanquished
Ah Blizzard, if there’s one gaming developer that’s willing to give supporting and butt monkey characters there time in the sun it’s them. Blizzard Outcasts: Vengeance of the Vanquished is a new fighting (a la Divekick) game in development where it takes those oh so sorry background extras and gives them a chance at the impossible: meaning a crap. From motivational dead wives to magic addicted wannabe rulers Vengeance of the Vanquished has a wide, varied cast of losers to pick from. The stages are as familiar as the bland characters they’re based from, and moves set so broken that you’ll be asking your money back in record time. Want to play a game so bad it’s bad in a bad way, then Blizzard Outcasts: Vengeance of the Vanquished will give you all that and less this holiday season.
2. Google Maps: Pokémon Challenge
Let’s see, Google has:
- Web Browsers
- Finance stuff
- Google + no one uses
So why not Pokémon Masters? Yep Google announced yesterday (to throughout today) that they are looking for a Pokémon Master to work for Google. Using the Google map app on your smartphone they want applicants to get as many Pokémon entries as they can by exploring all over the world through forests, deserts, icecaps and yes grasslands. For many this is a once in a life time opportunity to not only to work for Google but to be an official Pokémon Master with business cards and everything. I myself would love to take the challenge but I already have a sweet gig exploring the nature of Pokémon’s dreams with Professor Burnet. I think we’re close to a breakthrough.
1. Will Smith NCR
Who doesn’t like Will Smith? That’s right nobody, a skilled TV and Movie actor most of the things he’s in are at least entertaining. However did you know he was a rapper back in the day, bet you didn’t. Well he decided to get back into his roots and release a new album called NCR. It’s not ready yet, but he was nice enough to put on YouTube one completed track as an audio appetizer for the things to come. It’s not bad in my humble opinion but we’ll see how the rest sounds when NCR is completed.
