HBM's Thoughts on Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call

So, Theatrhythm's sequel, Curtain Call, came out in America a few days ago. Now, I'm not going to review it, just give my basic thoughts on it.

It's basically the same game as the original, but with much more songs and characters, and more DLC stuff. So that's good. Really there's only one flaw I can think of, and that's that there's NO GOD IN FIRE. But other than that horrendous tragedy, spot on.

Super Smash Bros 3DS Demo: My Thoughts

So, this weekend, Nintendo sent out codes to Club Nintendo Platinum Members for early access to the Smash Bros 3DS Demo. I'm a Platinum Member, so I got the demo code, and I'm gonna give my thoughts on it.

So, the demo only lets you access 5 characters with 4 costumes each: Mario, Link, Pikachu, Mega Man, and Villager. There's only one stage, Battlefield, bothin regular and Final Destination forms. Overall, the gameplay speed feels like it's right in between Melee and Brawl, which is good. Link is more powerful, Mega Man is fun to play, and Villager takes a bit of getting used to, but once you do, he's great too.

All in all, I'd say it's pretty good for a demo. Pretty lacking, I'd say, especially since the menus show all the other starting options, just greyed out (Fucking mocking me with unselectable Little Mac). You can access the Tips screen, so if you want some minor advice, you can check that out. Anyway, I'm even more hyped for Smash 3DS now. Can't wait.

Super Smash Bros 3DS/Wii U Full Roster: My Thoughts

So, you know how a couple weeks ago the Smash Bros roster leak happened? Well, some people have gotten their hands on the japanese version of Smash 3DS, and the leaked roster is actually the full roster!

Not included in pic: Mii Fighters, since you actually have to import one to unlock them.
So, to put it lightly... I am disappointed. I mean, not with the character selection itself. I've seen gameplay of Bowser Jr. and Duck Hunt Dog and they look good, and I've heard Dark Pit is basically a more powerful Pit, but... it's a small roster. I mean, there's clearly room for 4 more characters, and it's just not being used. Not only that, but there are quite a few characters that would have been amazing in Smash, like Wonder Red and Ghirahim, but no, they're thrown to the side for no reason at all.

Now, I have read from a very reliable leaker that there is a heavy possibility of there being 4 more characters available once 3DS is linked with Wii U, specifically citing Mewtwo, Ridley, Dixie Kong, and Chorus Kids, and while I don't think that makes much sense, I'm okay with that if it's the case. I'm just kinda pissed that we aren't getting much more fighters. While I am still hyped for the new Smash, that hype has just rapidly diminished. Though thankfully, that'll make the few weeks until it comes to USA more bearable.

HBM Reviews: Azure Striker Gunvolt + Mighty Gunvolt

So, a couple weeks ago, a game came right the fuck out of nowhere on the 3DS eShop, and it's called Azure Striker Gunvolt. I hadn't even heard of it before the Nintendo Youtube channel posted the trailer. So, I guess I'm gonna review it now, or something...
