New slogan for Nintendo of America?

If you followed social and retail activities from Nintendo of America recently, you have encountered a new colour / image motif from them: instead of the corporate grey logo on white background, white logo on red background. You can see it on every Nintendo Youtube’s video preview, as their new avatar on Twitter (the color scheme is used by Nintendo NY’s Twitter account too). Also, they renewed their retail presence back in the end of last year with the same motif and artworks of several Nintendo characters: two examples on the matter

Also, just see the already well-documented and not-praised-enough logo for MyNintendo, which is actually global compared to all the aforementioned initiatives, NA only for now.

Thanks to the recent 2DS price-cut commercial, it seems there’s a new element of this new advertising policy.

PSX memories ft. Crash 2 & 3. Or vs? Part 1

Ah, the first PlayStation, a console that I remember quite fondly. I was a child back then, and while I liked videogames, I still have way too many great if not amazing titles from that era I should’ve played (and that I should still play), but I’ve yet to even just try. Anyway, I have a good amount of gaming memories related to that console, like the first game I’ve ever played, Porsche Challenge. I still remember how I tried to steer in the game the first time I played it by actually steering the contoller. Ah, that Wii foreshadowing, if only I knew…

Seriously, though, I played several games on PSX, and, I have to be honest, there’s a series I’ve fell in love with back when it appeared on the first PlayStation, and it’s sad to see it now disappeared from Earth (…even if maybe not for long?!?): Crash Bandicoot “original” series.

MAJOR WARNING: This is a 4,000+ blog post, containing spoilers about both games. In case you haven’t played these games yet, avoid the rest of it. For all the others, see you all after the jump.

A few months ago, Nintendo announced it would have been released in July in Japan (no, don’t even ask for the West, that way you won’t be disappointed when it’s not announced for its release here), and it seems time for more infos on the game is coming soon

Humble Friends of Nintendo: the new titles

The most recent Nintendo-themed Humble Bundle, called Humble Friends of Nintendo Bundle has been a good performer so far: in just a week, it accumulated well over 100,000 bundles sold and over $1,000,000 of payments, with a very high average, over $9.70. The result has been surely helped by the good and great titles featured so far, like Affordable Space Adventure and Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse (and these are the ones available just by donating one single dollar. An insanely sick deal, honestly), or Darksiders II and Freedom Planet. But it’s now time to discover what’s getting added for all the people who pledged better than the average
