HBM News: 1/24/16-1/30/16

The end of January has come, and we got a decent amount of news this week. So, last post of the month, let's go.


HBM News: 1/17/16-1/23/16

It's once again time for news. We actually got a fair bit of news this week, so that's cool.


HBM News: 1/10/16-1/16/16

Another week, another news post. This week, we actually got quite a bit more news than usual, so that's always good.

First of all, while I haven't really talked about real-world deaths, and would prefer not to, I have to call attention to the deaths of David Bowie and Alan Rickman. Both were 69 years old, and both died of cancer. They were both great people that did amazing things, and they will be sorely missed.

Anyway, now that that's over with, onto better news.


HBM's Top Ten Games of 2016 I'm Most Excited For

So, it's now 2016, and there's quite a few awesome-looking games coming out this year. And like every year, I'm counting down the Top Ten that I'm looking forward to.Thankfully, unlike last year, there are more games that caught my eye for this year, so let's get to it.


HBM News: 1/3/15-1/9/15

It's once more time for news. Again, we don't have much news this week, but what the hell, gotta do this.

Pokken Tournament: New playable characters are going to be confirmed on Friday, the 15th. So, that's a thing.

Square-Enix: So, in 2014, Square-Enix opened up a subsidiary company called Shinra Technologies, which was focused on cloud technology. Square announced this week that, last month, they closed Shinra.

Aaaand that's it for this week. Let's hope we get more news soon.

Super Mario Bros Z Reboot Episode 1: My Thoughts

Well, it's finally here. As I said in a previous post, the creator of the Mario/Sonic crossover series Super Mario Bros Z, AlvinEarthworm, has decided to redo this amazing series from the ground up, and this first episode doesn't disappoint! You could definitely say that an episode of this quality was worth waiting for, and I'm going to go over why!

In these posts, I'm going to be giving a summary of the events of the episode, comparing it to the original series (at least, until the reboot catches up to the original), and talking about specific note-worthy changes and gags. For those of you who haven't watched the original series, I'll try to keep possible spoilers to a minimum, and I recommend watching the original Super Mario Bros Z series (you can watch it on various Youtube accounts, or AlvinEarthworm's Newgrounds account). Any way, onto the episode.


HBM's Top Ten Games of 2015

Well 2015 has come and gone. There were some really great games, but a bunch of the ones I got ended up being just mediocre. Either way I'm giving my Top 10 Games of 2015 here.

Quick side note: Just like my Top Ten Games of 2015 I Was Most Excited About, I'm breaking my own rule about not including re-releases, for 2 reasons: #1. This year was the first time they were released in America, and #2. I didn't play much new games from 2015 yet. Even once I have and I update this list, I'm probably going to keep the re-releases. Anyway, onto the list itself.


HBM News: 12/27/15-1/2/16

Happy late new Year! So, again, we didn't get much news this week. I'd expect we may get a Nintendo Direct in a couple weeks or so, but for now, we don't have much to talk about. Whatever, let's get on with it.

Street Fighter V: So, the DLC Characters are apparently still in the "conceptual" stage, and are likely to be released every 2 months or so.

Final Fantasy XV: It's confirmed to be releasing this year. So... that's a thing.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven: It's been confirmed that, other than the DLC missions, there's no plans for more DLC. That's pretty sad, to be honest.

That's all the news of the week. Let's hope for more this coming week.
