Saga Thoughts For March 21st, 2014

saga thoughts logo 300x213 Saga Thoughts For March 21st, 2014

Well today was a medium kind of day. What do I mean by that? Well on my way home this afternoon, my car window decided to fall out of the track completely so I get to get that fixed next week, hooray! Sigh, oh well, it happens.

But we did have some good news recently, that is that we finally have officially opened the GameSaga Forums complete with user registration & logins. I didn’t realize until recently that it hadn’t been set up to allow that, so I apologize for the inconvenience there and hope to see some insightful, funny, or topical comments from you all in the future. To sign up simply click here to go to the registration page and you can then login and start posting comments on any post on the site or topics in the forums or create your own forum topic.

In this week’s Weekly Smash Up, we first take a look the Smash Ball for Super Smash Bros. For Wii U & 3DS. In the new games, the Smash Ball is slightly redesigned. It is now more purple-pink, whereas in Brawl it could vary from purple, pink, blue, or rainbow. Odds are it’s likely it will vary in this version as well, but we can’t tell that from this screenshot. We then got a look at a new stage, which is based on Super Mario 3D Land For 3DS. This stage is for the 3DS version of the game and is an auto-scrolling stage, which you can read more about here. The next day we got a goofy screenshot. Sakurai-san likes to post these from time to time to show off the lighter side of the game and his team’s work. This one is of Rosalina, one of the new additions to the Smash Bros. roster. She is seemingly taking a nap. Wake up Rosalina, there’s a battle going on! We then move to a look at Diddy Kong’s Peanut Popgun ability. The team has added an explosive effect to the attack. According to Mr. Sakurai, it is “difficult to hit your target, but when you succeed, the explosion will really blow your enemies away.” Sounds like it could function similarly to Ness’s PK Thunder or PK Flash abilities from Melee. Finally, we close out the week with a new trophy. Whether it’s just a collectible one or an Assist Trophy remains to be seen, but this is Phosphora from Kid Icarus: Uprising for 3DS. Sakurai-san introduced her in the same fashion he usually introduces new playable characters, then posted a follow up comment saying she’s a trophy with a full screenshot of her:

According to various sources, Ubisoft is working on a new Far Cry game, which will be the fourth entry in the main series, Far Cry 4. It will be set in the Himalayas and will feature elephants that you can ride. The game is scheduled to be released in the first half of 2015. Rumor has it that Ubisoft will be featuring Far Cry 4 at their E3 press conference this year. It’s unknown if the game will appear on Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, but it’ll likely be available for PC, PlayStation 4, & Xbox One. The gameplay is expected to stay largely the same as it was in Far Cry 3.
