I drew this awhile back and I loved it so I set it free into the Tumblr wild. Now it came back to me. So it must have been meant to be.
Here’s the latest episode of Reggie Makes Music, a web series from IFC’s Comedy Bang Bang in which Reggie Watts collaborates musically with a different comedi
I love this song
There is so much negativity out there wheen people talk about E3 and I wrote a ig thing about all big theree companies and then part of it got deleted so instead of conjure up all the negative energy toward Microsoft again I want to talk about Nintendo and why I love them. Don’t get me wrong I am loving me some Sony right now too but everyone is talking about how great sony is right now and people have been shitting on Nintendo a bit so I feel I should explain why I am happy with what they did at E3.
I love Nintendo and I think they simply make the highest quality games available and I enjoy their sensibility and inventiveness. Some people accuse them of never innovating and just sticking with the same stuff. I find them very innovative within their given formulas. This is a huge corporation who is trying to make money and these games make money. They could easily half ass game development on these key titles, instead they consistently invent within the bounds of their given series. They take Mario and Zelda to places we have never seen them and let us control them in ways we never had. They invent in more subtle, and I would argue more difficult, ways through excellent refined level design and control design. These things might not jump out as inventive in a trailer but when you play the game you will feel it. You will have more fun than you normally do playing games and after you beat the game you will want to do it again. I don’t need every game to be based around some crazy idea, don’t get me wrong I love crazy ideas, but execution matters more. There are many games out there that have really inventive ideas at their core but are just eh because the execution isn’t there. Nintendo always has the execution in their major titles.
I have a Wii U and have enjoyed the few games that have been available for it. I think the 3ds is probably the best system on the market and I was really excited to see what I will be playing the rest of the year on both systems.
Mario and Luigi Dream team
I love this series. Bowser’s Inside Story was so inventive and fun I can’t wait to play this new entry. The 3D play of the real world mixed with the 2D in Luigi’s dreams looks great and I think the game seems like it is trying a lot of new ideas out.
Pokemon X and Y
I like pokemon but is isn’t a series I play every entry of. This looks like a true evolution (get it) on the pokemon formula. I am planning on having this be the game I get back into the series with.
The Legend of Zelda A Link Between Worlds
I think it is a great idea and I can’t wait to get my hands on this game. Link to the past is one of my favorite games of all time and I am positive this game will be amazing.
Yoshi’s New Island
Yoshi’s island is one of the best side-scrollers ever made and it’s underrated sequel on the DS was great as well. I am happy to see the series return and can’t wait to play it.
I have sunk countless hours into mario golf. It is my favorite sports type game hands down. They didn’t actually show it a E3 but they did tell us that it got pushed till next year but that’s is okay they are releasing enough new stuff this year anyway,
Wii Fit U and Wii Party
I couldn’t care less
I played the first game and enjoyed it. I didn’t love it like some other people but I am looking forward to playing the next game. Also she got a haircut… so there is that.
They finally showed how the gameplay actually works and I think it looks really fun. I am always interested in new and inventive IPs. I wasn’t always that excited about this but I have to say I am getting excited.
Sonic Lost World
I actually really enjoyed Sonic Generations so for once I actually have hope that sonic is on the upswing. I want this game to be good really bad but there still is a strong chance it will suck, but I remain hopeful.
The Legend of Zelds Wind Waker HD
This game is so freaking good and I am just excited to have a reason to play it again. Plus it will fill the time till they can get an original Wii U Zelda out. Plus I get to play it this year.
Smash Bros Wii U and 3DS
I am not insane about this series like a lot of people but I always enjoy playing them and I am sure this new one will be no different, but not till next year.
Mario Kart 8
I love Mario kart and can’t wait to play this with my girlfriend. 7 was my favorite entry yet and this looks like it is taking what that game and the Wii version did and improving upon it. Still I wish I didn’t have tpo wait till next year.
From the same team that made the great warioland shake it and Kirby’s epic yarn come a new Wii U Yoshi game. They didn’t actually show it this E3 which saddened me. But it is still coming and I am still excited.
Super Mario 3D World
I have heard some pundits saying this isn’t exciting enough. I disagree the 3ds 3d land is amazing and I really think this is going to be great. The mario team is crazy inventive. Also it is coming out THIS YEAR!!, that is crazy, what more do these people want.
Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze
Retro is back at DK and I can’t wait. DKC returns was fun and challenging. It’s only a few years old and I have beaten it at least 5 times. I am really happy to see that retro are still working on DK. I have heard people complain because they wanted Metroid of Starfox I want that too but the fact is that DK sells way more and is a much better way to attract people to the Wii U and increase the install base this holiday season. Also again this is coming out THIS YEAR!! I am very happy about this.
Nintendo has a TON of exclusive games coming. That is great, did I get every announcement I wanted? No, but I did get to find out about two huge games that I will be able to play this year. Also you have to remember now that Nintendo has been using Nintendo Directs we don’t just hear from them once a year. I think the message from this year’s E3 is we are going to increase the Wii U install base using these huge games in our most popular franchises. I think we will hear more about other titles in future Nintendo directs probably right after the new year.

WILL WE EVER COME TO A DECISION ON ME? #superaustin
The first thing i have ever reblogged.
I got in a conversation on facebook today about it and wrote a huge thing so I figured I shouldn’t waste it and post it here.
My issue is more with the mindset of xbox as a company. I worry that the promised exclusives to be revealed at E3 will be games that I am mostly not that interested in playing. It is true I don’t know yet and my mind could be changed. But the companies they have as their second party developers do not impress me. I didn’t enjoy Alan Wake at all, the ex-infinity ward guys game might be cool depending on what it is but if it is a fps I probably won’t care, and it probably will be. The only company they did have that I love was Rare and they wasted them by having them make avatars. Viva pinata and Banjo nuts and bolts were not amazing but still better than a lot of other xbox exclusives, at least they were inventive. There are rumors that they will have a game at E3 but I am not sure how much talent is left at Rare most of the key people left awhile back. Truth is eventually I will buy all 3 systems, I always do and I play everything but I haven’t regularly used my 360 in years. I play about 3 games a year on it and they are almost always xbox live games, and in my opinion both steam and psn have a more vibrant and interesting independent market. I don’t enjoy kinect, it is cool tech but they have shown that they lack the innovation to make any interesting games with it. Kinect 2 is truly amazing but again what will they do with it that will actual make games I want to play. Kinect has been out a long time and none of the stuff on it interests me at all. That is my problem in general with xbox, I know all of the big 3 are businesses but xbox feels like a company ran by business people who do not care about innovation in games at all. I feel like sony has an interest in letting creative companies take risks and make innovative stuff. Naughty dog has become one of the best companies around with their support and That Game Company(Journey, Flower), Juicebox(the excellent Guacamelee), and Pixeljunk(the pixeljunk games shooter 1 and 2 being my favorite) are amazing small developers that they have supported as well. I love Evolution Studios (motorstorm) Media Molecule (little big planet), Guerrilla Games (killzone, killzone 3 was better than halo 4 to me and i enjoyed both), Zanzaru Games( the newest and great sly cooper) Sucker Punch (infamous). That isn’t even all of them just the most impressive ones they also have Sony Santa Montica (God of war) and Quantic Dream (Heavy Rain) I haven’t loved those companies games but I enjoyed them alright and would buy whatever they make next. All of those companies plus more unmentioned ones and the fact that sony has supported them and allowed them to make the games they want to make. I don’t like some stuff about sony it is true they are slow to evolve in the PSN space and live is better in a lot of ways but I almost never play multiplayer so to me it hardly matters. Like I said my mind can be changed but I feel like microsoft just pays already thriving third party companies for timed exclusives rather than fostering growth in smaller talented development houses like sony does. I would much rather see that money that goes to Activision go to a smaller game development studio with big ideas to make something new and exciting. Yes they do have some like People Can Fly (buttetstorm and Gears of war Judgement) but they use these companies on lame games that just seem to be saying me too in the fps/ 3rd person shooter market rather than innovating. On top of all that I just don’t think I trust a company that thought that presentation was enough to make me want an xbox one to know what should be happening in the video game industry.
