HBM Reviews: Deadpool

"This is what AWESOME looks like!"
Hey guys, I'm still in New York, but I'm still able to use the internet, so what better time to review the recent Deadpool game? Also, like always, I'm using the PS3 control scheme because I still don't have an XBox 360. Bleh.

10000 Page Views! + Hiatus

Hey guys. Sorry I haven't been updating. It's just that school's over, and I don't have much to post about. So apparently, I hit 10,000 page views a little while ago. WOO HOO!

Also, I'm going on vacation to New York from this Friday to July 8, so this month's Bleach recap will be a little late. My reviews should still be on time though.

HBM, signing out.

Super Smash Bros Newcomer: Wii Fit Trainer Measures Up

So, Super Smash Bros. 4 was officially announced yesterday at E3, to the excitement of everyone with at least one functioning brain cell. Shortly after that, at Nintendo's special "hands-on" introduction to their new games, Masahiro Sakurai himself showed up to reveal a third newcomer to the Smash Bros. series. This newcomer is somebody nobody could have seen coming (the Nintendo reps even acknowledged this): the Wii Fit Trainer.


So... yeah. I know I didn't expect her. Anyway, her moveset consists of various yoga poses and stuff inspired by exercises from the Wii Fit games, and her Final Smash, "Wii Fit," has her summon silhouettes of yoga poses to attack the enemy. Overall, while her introduction is very tongue-in-cheek, I have to say the Trainer is a welcome addition to this game just from her trailer.

So yeah, as new stages and characters for Smash Bros. 4 are announced, I'll be here, updating on the new stuff that is known. I'll do another post soon detailing the Animal Crossing Villager, Megaman, and what we know of the new stages. If you want more immediate updates, make sure to visit the Super Smash Bros. website, or, if you have a Wii U, the Smash Bros. Series Miiverse Community, where Sakurai will be updating about 5 times a week.

HBM, signing out.

E3 2013: My Reactions

Well, another E3 is coming by. And by god, this one does not disappoint. I mean, if you're looking at the image to the left of this paragraph, you should know what the highlight of the event was for me already, and I bet you want to know all of what I have to say. Well, you'll have to read on to find out.

So, I'm just going to summarize what I thought of the stuff I actually gave a shit about that was actually shown and given online coverage. I'm going to update this as E3 goes along, so this post will take a few days to fully complete. Anyway, here goes.

Project X Zone Demo A


Okay, yeah, I know I'm a week late with this shit. SORRY, ALRIGHT?! I HAVE A FUCKING LIFE! Anyway, yeah, so Project X Zone certainly is... something. It's a crossover between Sega, Capcom, and Namco Bandai, combining most of their most popular franchises (as long as they have anime-esque art styles, for some reason >_<) into a massive epic adventure to... I dunno, find out if rainbows really do taste like Skittles? Some shit like that. Anyway, it was released toward the end of last year in Japan, and after much petitioning and even the lead Tekken/Soul Calibur developer, Katsuhiro Harada, trying to get it localized, PXZ is coming out worldwide! While it may not have any dubbing in other languages, at least we're getting it!

Of course, the demo was just released to hype us up more and give us a taste of the game if we were previously unable, but that's enough for me. Keep in mind a few things right now: #1: Of all the series' represented in this game, I'm only really familiar with Street Fighter, Tekken, Megaman, Resident Evil, Devil May Cry, Darkstalkers, and Ghosts 'n' Goblins characters, so please excuse any ignorance of the other franchises; and #2: I've only just played the demo yesterday. So yeah, let's get started here.
