I am a studying web design major currently working in the IT department of an ever growing company in Lexington, KY. I have a passion for all things technology, especially video games, and love my family, life, and my beautiful wife.
I was surprised it didn’t go sooner! If you enjoy it I highly suggest Ages as well.
What’s up Polygon! Everyone enjoying their shiny new Xbox One’s, Mario’s and/or Zelda’s? I have been playing A Link Between Worlds and all I can say is wow! It captures the spirit of A Link to the Past extremely well.
With my copy of A Link Between Worlds, I received a download code for LoZ: Oracle of Seasons since I pre-ordered it from GameStop. The Oracle games are extremely well made games and two of my favorite Zelda adventures. Seeing as I bought Oracle of Ages and Seasons when they released on the Virtual Console I don’t need this code. I don’t have any close friends that own a 3DS (sad, I know) so I thought I would give it away to someone on Polygon Daily! I was originally going to say whoever replied first would get it and we could exchange emails, but now I’m thinking I’ll just post the code and let someone snatch it up!
If you’re the lucky soul who grabs it, please be kind enough to let everyone know it’s gone.
Thanks and as usual, stay awesome Polynauts!

Still no word on Sonic 2’s remastered release date? It’s supposed to be this month and I just keep searching Google Play, waiting patiently…
Ah, that makes sense.
What’s up Polygon! Gonna make this quick:
Today is my last day at my job. Although it’s bittersweet, I can’t wait to hit my coding hard and make a small portfolio to send out to a few possibilities so I can show my stuff. Hopefully a job or paid internship will come sooner rather than later!
Happy PS4 launch! I hope you guys and gals that got one are having fun! To the Xbox fans one more week! I still haven’t decided which I’m getting first, still leaning towards PS4, but I need to decide soon as it will be my Christmas present from my good ole parents this year. :) We’ll see!
Lastly, Lucky Lightford Pokemon Origins first episode released today on the Pokemon TV app and Pokemon.com. I believe you requested a reminder. ;) I’ve only gotten to watch the first 5 minutes but so far I’m impressed!
Edit: I just say that Sterling Smith reminded you and everyone else. I hope you enjoy it!
That’s all for now! Have a great weekend and as usual, stay awesome Polynauts!
I actually didn’t mind the story, nothing great but still competent. The second campaign was pretty cool. It takes place during Gears 3 when Marcus’s team splits up with Baird’s team.
Weird because the Wii’s blue LED indicator that circled the disc drive “breathed” too.
Halo series and Gears 1 & 2, I agree with. Gears 3, plays as well as the first two, but that story. Out of all the questions I had from the first two games, only a couple got answered but a few more questions were tacked on to the list.
The Gears series is probably my favorite implementation of a third person shooter, but I was left pretty bitter about my tons of questions with no answers.
I also wish People Can Fly left the weapon wheel alone when they made GoW: Judgement, but that’s a different argument for a different day.
I’m really excited about this. I hope it plays well and fills the deep dark void in my life that was Rouge Squadron.
All 3DS models are backwards compatible with the entire DS library. :)
As an owner of both I would personally say 3DS. While the Vita has a few great titles and an ever growing library of amazing indie titles, the 3DS just has such a robust game library. I think I could purely focus on my 3DS for a month and still not get through my library. The DS compatibility helps too because there are some games I missed from that gen that I pan on hunting down and playing. Plus you have the eShop which has a huge library of great downloadable titles and a growing library of classic titles from Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Gear.
The PS4 Remote Play is cool and I will probably use it if my wife wants to use the TV and I want to continue playing. PS+ makes the Vita worth owning as well. I’ve actually only purchased 3 cartridge based games and two downloadable games since owning the system because PS+ keeps me covered with everything else.
Both systems obviously have pros and cons. Just look at game libraries, see what your interested in and go from there! You won’t be going wrong with either choice! I personally just prefer and play my 3DS more. Good luck!
I’d check out the Verge’s review ajohnston37 posted and weigh the pros and cons of both systems. The new Vita has micro usb charging, so universal standard. It’s also a little lighter and has a better battery life. The biggest con is obviously the screen being LCD as opposed to OLED.
While I haven’t gotten to hold or use the new Vita I can tell you with my personal experience that the OG Vita:
- Isn’t heavy or awkward to hold.
- Battery actually holds up very well. (I haven’t played for over 3 hours but close to it a few times and never had less than a quarter battery when I was done)
- Proprietary charger is a little annoying but I’m used to it since all previous handhelds are proprietary.
- The OLED is one of the best screens I’ve ever used on any mobile device (cell phones included)
I hope this helps! Either way it’s a good little handheld, and if you aren’t used to the OLED, the LCD will probably look great as well. The only thing that would make me upgrade is if Sony switched to SD cards.
WHAT?! I am jelly…
Couldn’t make it through 10 minutes… I finished the show on Netflix, it suggested the movie and I thought “Why not?” Needless to say, I found out why not…
I also really like the whole power up within battle as opposed to pick your powered up character. I also enjoyed the cell shaded that was added in Budokai 2 and Budokai 1 for GameCube. I just hated the story mode in Budokai 2. I never actually owned Budokai 3 (being Xbox over PS2 that gen) but I got to play it at friends houses and loved it! I think I will eventually pick up the HD collection after this little nostalgia trip! I think I’m also going to look into Burst Limit, because like you said, it’s also made by Dimps.
Ultimate Butouden looks pretty cool. Another game that looks interesting is Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans. While not a fighter, it’s gotten critical praise for being a fun and engaging RPG. It’s also made by Monolith Soft (Xenoblade Chronicles, Project X Zone) so that’s a big plus.
These videos make me want to find and play the old Super Famicom DBZ fighters. They look like a blast.
It’s the epitome of: “It’s so bad, it’s good.”
Seen it! Twice. :)
My freshman year of college, my pledge class and I got together to watched this movie. We had a blast making fun of EVERYTHING about it. This movie is an abomination and I wouldn’t have enjoyed it without my brothers.
Wow thanks for sharing. This reminds me of the Super Mario Bros. 2/Doki Doki Panic switch.
Thanks! I’ll look into these.
Hopefully some news on the new Yoshi’s Island!
Also, I know this is a 3DS Direct but I’d really like some news on Yoshi Yarn…
I’ll take any advise I can get!
I can definitely live without the characters. It’s the least important one on my list to me. The Frieza Soldier is a little ridiculous.
I also agree with the whole 3D movement thing. The one game I played with it, I hated it. I think it was Sagas which got horrible reviews if I remember correctly. Maybe I’ll look into Burst Limit. Do you know anything about the upcoming game Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z? Dumb name, and it looks like it’ll be 3D movement as well so it may be a bust.
I looked up prices on some of these games and I can’t believe how most of the games hold their value! Supersonic Warriors 2 is only $20 online at GameStop and they have some available.
I may just hold off on a game this go around and just stick to the shows and movies like I usually do. I’ll look into Burst Limit and the Supersonic games. I may just end up getting Budokai HD since most of the games, even used, are the same price. Some are even more than they originally were. The Budokai Tenkaichi games are holding their value especially well on Amazon.
Lastly, did you really enjoy Budokai 2 or was that sarcasm? It’s been a very long time since I’ve played it but I remember disliking it a lot. Especially the way they handled Story Mode. Just curious! Thanks for your post!
Welcome to the site! I also used to be a silent observer but this site and community makes you want to get involved. I hope you enjoy it here! :)
Hopefully an Empire and Jedi mashup are on the way as well! This was awesome!
Yeah we did! I got the green one. :D
