THIS is surprising.  And looking into it, it seems FUNimation is actually going to treat the license with a modicum of respect (which is new coming from the House Of Dragon Ball Ad Nauseum). AND they apparently have some nice HD masters to work from, so that ought to be something.

In case you missed it, Wilco is offering its ninth album Star Wars free on iTunes and Amazon for a limited time.

Huh.  Looks like I'll be working my way through this new "Google Cultural Institute" thing a lot over the next months. This is way cool.

I'm going to continue to spam the words "Darkwing" and "Duck" all over until you make a figure of the defender of St. Canard himself that we can play with. #OurDisneyInfinity

Umm... HOLY MOLEY.  I think I'm already sold on this game (but it's not like I wasn't sold already though)

Some might say you're the reverse.

I pray that that geek reference does not go lost.

Okay, I'm definitely going to be at TooManyGames, and I do have a 3-day pass and I think I'll be there for much of Friday and Saturday for certain, so hopefully I can meet up with a few folks.

Okay, so I just got back from the +Nintendo Best Buy All Access event at the Best Buy in King of Prussia, and here are my thoughts on both The Legend of Zelda: Triforce Heroes and Super Mario Maker:

The Legend of Zelda: Triforce Heroes:
So, this is the first game I tried in the line for the event. I wasn't hyped before but I certainly am now.  I only got to try this game once, but I can tell you that I thought it was really interesting, and once the game is more fully out for people to get their hands on and play through a couple of times, then maybe they might be able to play the game more competently, because there was definitely some New Super Mario Bros. Wii-level trolling going on, and that's BAD because all three of you share your life meter. So every fall you take, every Octorock that hits you, etc. is one heart taken away.  So you have GOT to be on your A-game to be able to succeed, and all the other players have to be also.  It is very hard, even on the very first level in the demo.  I didn't try it with the whole face-tracking 3D thing (as the demo 3DSs were all New Nintendo 3DS XLs with this crazy cool sounding face-tracking 3D) because I thought I might need to set it up to make it work a bit better.  Also man that New Nintendo 3DS XL is awesome to hold in your hands.  I think that little bit of hands-on time was all I needed to sell me on the New Nintendo 3DS XL at some point.

Super Mario Maker:
This game.  This game is one of my most anticipated games this fall, and the 3 times I played through the demo (because the crowds for the event were not bad at all when I was there so I would just get right back into line to play) did not disappoint me in the slightest.  Yes this game is full of some of the biggest trolling in terms of the level design that I have ever seen, but it was really interesting to see some of the levels, like the ones where you get to try to stay as Link or Wii Fit Trainer in order to play through a level.  Also it was really interesting to me that most of the choices of the levels people made were either Mario 3 or Mario World.  There were some who played some of the SMB1 tile set levels, and there were several people who picked that hilarious Clown Car Chaos level from the NSMBU tile set, but other than that?  People really picked a lot of Mario 3 or Mario World.

Also maybe I am spotting something way different, but there IS a different music track in the "Adventure of Link" level in the demo. Can anyone help me spot what that came from?  Or will we have to take the +GameXplain analysis machine out for a spin?
