PETA Still Hates Nintendo: Pokemon Red, White, & Blue

Posted on October 14th, by raymond padilla in Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo DS, Videogames, Wii, Wii U. 2 comments

The morons at PETA have released another Pokemon parody to take advantage of the hype surrounding Pokemon X and Pokemon Y. The latest misguided attempt to raise awareness to the organization’s cause is Pokemon Red, White, & Blue. This time around, the group is challenging people to evolve (get it?!?) by urging them to become vegetarian or vegan. Here’s an excerpt from the campaign:

For generations, humans have loved Pokémon, but if Pokémon came to our world and saw how we treated animals, would they love us back?


This Week’s Videogame Releases

Posted on October 7th, by raymond padilla in Game Releases, Nintendo 3DS, PS3, Videogames, Xbox 360. No Comments

It is a marvelous week to be a gamer! Millions of people will be picking up Pokemon X and Pokemon Y this week. As someone that spent 700+ hours on Pokemon Pearl and a former writer of a weekly Pokemon column, I’m completely psyched for this game. Another one that’s high on my personal wish list is Beyond: Two Souls. Most of my videogame-journalist friends love it, but a few of them aren’t into it. It really depends how much of a Quantic Dream mark you are. As many … continued

This Week’s Videogame Releases

Posted on September 30th, by raymond padilla in Game Releases, Nintendo 3DS, PS3, Videogames, Xbox 360. 4 comments

With the Yankees 2013 season ending in failure, I’m ditching baseball and getting psyched for the 2013-2014 NBA season. NBA 2K14 should be a great help. I have no idea how this season will end, but when I play, the Miami Heat will not win another title. I know that many of you regular RPadholics aren’t big on the Nintendo 3DS platform, but there are a pair of lovely JRPGs hitting the Nintendo handheld this week: Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl and Rune Factory 4. Lastly, Ubi Soft … continued

Pokemon Origins Trailer

Pokemon Origins is a four-part animated series that tells the old-school story of Pokemon Red/Blue. While many fans of the Pokemon cartoons known and love Ash Ketchum, fans of the original game have a special place in their hearts for Red. Almost 20 years after the original game’s release, Red finally gets center stage in Pokemon Origins.

While some gamers might not be familiar with Red, they’ll see lots of familiar characters in Pokemon Origins. Professor Oak, Brock, Lance, Team Rocket Giovanni, Reina, and more will be … continued

Here’s a video interview and screenshot gallery of Sonic Lost World for Wii U. Sega of America associate brand manager Aaron Webber chatted with me about Sonic’s new enemies (The Deadly Six), new gameplay elements, mixing classic Sonic gameplay with those new elements, cooperative play, tie-ins with the Nintendo 3DS version of Sonic Lost World, and more. Some of the more interesting features include the parkour system (Sonic will no longer come to a dead stop!) and power-ups influenced by the excellent Sonic Colors.

As someone that grew … continued

151 Original Pokemon Drawn By 151 Artists Via Twitter

Posted on August 12th, by raymond padilla in Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo DS, Videogames, Wii, Wii U. 1 Comment

In one of the coolest Pokemon projects ever conceived, Justin Chan put together a collage of the 151 original Pokemon drawn by 151 different artists. The really cool part is that it was all organized over Twitter. In an amazing show of Pokemon love, all 151 Pokemon had assigned artists less than 24 hours after the project hit the Twitterverse. In less than 48 hours, 80 percent of the artwork was complete. In the immortal words of Brian Fellow, “That’s crazy!!!”

Check out a clip of the collage above and … continued

Here’s a Comic-Con 2013 clip of Scribblenauts Unmasked featuring DC Comics chief creative officer Geoff Johns and co-publisher Jim Lee. The two comic-book legends go over the character creation process in the game and spout some dorky (in that awesome nerd way) zingers. In addition to an adventure set in the DC Universe featuring numerous towns and characters from the comic books, the game’s character creation system features thousands of DCU heroes and villains. You can mix and match physical attributes and superpowers from well-known characters and obscure ones. For … continued

No Nintendo Press Conference at E3 2013

Posted on April 25th, by raymond padilla in Console Wars, Nintendo 3DS, Wii U. 9 comments

As Polygon reported yesterday, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata said that the company will not have a traditional press conference at the E3 2013 trade show. Instead, the company will focus on smaller events. Whether this is a sound strategy or not remains to be seen. What’s certain is that is creates a perception problem for Nintendo. Its major competitors, Microsoft and Sony, are going large with events to promote upcoming console hardware. By not having a competing presser, many pundits believe that the company looks weak, whether that’s a … continued

This Week’s Videogames Releases

Posted on February 11th, by raymond padilla in Game Releases, Nintendo 3DS, PS3, Videogames, Xbox 360. 2 comments

Sega’s Aliens: Colonial Marines is this week’s big videogame release. People love space shooters. People love Aliens. Ergo, this game has a lot of people amped. In other Sega news, Sonic and pals drive through multiple console systems in Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed. The cover of the game has Sonic in a race car. I’m pretty sure he can run faster than a car, so I don’t know why he’s in it, but the kids seem to love it.

So, any of you picking up new games … continued
