Hyrule Warriors Note

There has been a change of plans with the last update. I have decided that I will only be getting Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS on October 3rd in order to have more time for the Batman: Arkham City walkthrough. Please understand.

Hyrule Warriors material will be sometime during mid to late October.

Q4 2014 Update

I know most of you have been wondering why I have stopped uploading. Not to worry, I've just been taking a bit of a long break. I've been catching up with Nintendo and Super Smash Bros. 4 news so that's caused a ruckus. Thankfully, I have started re-uploading videos today!

Some of you may have noticed my Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U Soundtrack videos. I might continue uploading this but I'm not positive. For now, I'd like to focus on videos of Wii U games that my viewers will like.

For this reason, my co-op buddy will be doing a walkthrough of Batman: Arkham City: Armored Edition. The first two parts will be uploaded today for sure. Be sure to keep a look out for Part 1: Terror in Arkham City and Part 2: Two-Face's Judgement.

I have a feeling that most of my viewers were shocked when I didn't upload Super Smash Bros. Brawl: All Final Smashes back in April 2013 when I was doing videos for that game. The thing is (and this may sound ridiculous to you) I didn't know you could summon the Smash Ball in Training! So I've finally uploaded it today. Some of you have probably been waiting for it for a long time.

We're approaching October fast which means we are close to the final three months (also known as Q4) of the year. So here's some updates:

I have already pre-ordered Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and I believe it will be coming out November 21st. As my birthday is November 29th, I will probably actually be playing it around that time. Expect a character unlocking guide, some classic mode/online gameplay, and much, much more related to this spectacular upcoming game.

The release date for Hyrule Warriors is coming up fast and it's going to be released this Friday! I decided to preorder SSB4 instead of this game but not to worry. I plan to get this Zelda spin-off title the same day that Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS comes out. Expect some gameplay and a walkthrough of the game around October 3rd. If the game is still in stock at my local GameStop, that is.

You may already know this, but I purchased the retail edition of Wii Sports Club a while back so I plan on doing some videos of the sports I haven't done yet: Baseball and Boxing. Wii Party U is still massively under-represented on my channel so I may return to that game at some point this year. Unfortunately, I am not going to be doing any more Game & Wario videos as most of the mini-games require the Gamepad to be shown.

I've done many LEGO game walkthroughs in the past so as you can tell, I am a huge LEGO game fan. Unfortunately for me, LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham is coming out around the same day as SSB for Wii U. However, I may get this game for my birthday. I will be doing SSB videos before LEGO Batman 3 though so expect some videos of the game in December.

While we haven't had any information on the game in a while, I still believe that Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker will be coming out this holiday season. I hope to do a walkthrough of this game and I may get it for Christmas. This game will be getting a chance to shine on my channel sometime after LEGO Batman 3.

Mario Kart 8 has recently got some DLC announced for it. One pack is coming in November and one pack is coming in May. I still haven't got a chance to pre-order these packs but hopefully I will at some point. Either way, I plan to do videos of this soon. Also, my co-op buddy and I have been thinking about doing a Batman: Arkham Origins walkthrough shortly after we finish Arkham City but it's not set in stone yet. I'm also openly taking requests for videos on SSBB. I'd also like to address that I still haven't done the S.T.A.R. Lab videos for Injustice: Gods Among Us. I may do some of these during the Arkham City walkthrough.

Here's the round-up:

Super Smash Bros. Brawl: All Final Smashes (click the link above to watch!)
                       Currently taking requests for more videos on this game
Batman: Arkham City: Armored Edition walkthrough (Parts 1 & 2 coming today)
Hyrule Warriors gameplay and walkthrough (planned around October 3rd)
Wii Sports Club and Wii Party U gameplay videos (planned around Mid-October)
Super Smash Bros. for Wii U gameplay and guides (most likely around November 29th)
LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham gameplay and walkthrough (sometime after Smash Bros.)
Mario Kart 8 DLC Pack 1 gameplay (planned around the end of November)
Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker walkthrough (planned around Christmas)
Batman: Arkham Origins walkthrough (under consideration-TBA date)
Injustice: Gods Among Us S.T.A.R. Labs videos (under consideration-TBA date)

Thanks for staying tuned to the latest news! :)

Party Time!

I am pleased to say that I have recorded all the remaining Injustice: Gods Among Us videos. These include All Stage Transitions as well as Batgirl, Scorpion, and General Zod Gameplay. I believe that Battle Mode Gameplay is pretty much a pointless video...but S.T.A.R. Labs are not forgotten. I think I will be able to do more than just the Superman ones (no matter how dumb the story and no matter how hard they are). However, it'll be a little bit until you see those videos.

Moving on to the reason that this blog entry is called Party Time, I have recently got Game & Wario from Club Nintendo Platinum Awards. I will be doing videos on this game starting tomorrow along with Wii Party U. Both of these games I thoroughly enjoy and I look forward to finally doing some more multiplayer games, which my channel has been lacking for a while. During this time, I will also be uploading the S.T.A.R. Labs. You can be sure that not all the S.T.A.R. Labs for every character will be available on my channel, as some of them are EXTREMELY FRUSTRATING.

After these party videos, I will continue Mario Kart 8 and will host a tournament. Please be patient.

Thanks for watching and please subscribe! :)

P.S.: Which Batman game was released last year on the Wii U and is a prequel? That is our next walkthrough.

Year-Half Plans

We're about halfway into 2014 and I'd like to update you with my plans as to what videos I plan to upload on YouTube from now until December.

I still have some Injustice: Gods Among Us videos to do and here is the list of them:

Injustice: Gods Among Us: Batgirl Gameplay
Injustice: Gods Among Us: Scorpion Gameplay
Injustice: Gods Among Us: General Zod Gameplay
Injustice: Gods Among Us: Worst to Best Super Moves
Injustice: Gods Among Us: All Stage Transitions
Injustice: Gods Among Us: Superman S.T.A.R. Lab Missions
Injustice: Gods Among Us: Battle Mode Gameplay

Today I plan to upload Intros + Outros and Intros, Outros, and Super Moves. All Endings will be probably quite a while after I stop doing Injustice videos and as I don't know how or can't unlock all of the skins All Skins is canceled.

I also plan to do some Wii Party U videos as that is the game I did when I purchased Mario Kart 8.

Wii Party U: Highway Rollers
Wii Party U: All Minigames
Wii Party U: Spot the Sneak

Don't worry, there will be plenty more videos of this game but that's all I can think of off the top of my head. I also recently purchased LEGO Marvel Super Heroes and plan to do a multiplayer walkthrough of that at some point after my co-op buddy and I complete the story mode.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes: Walkthrough

The LEGO Indiana Jones series also has a future on my channel as I plan to do a walkthrough of that game right after completing the LEGO Marvel one.

LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures: Walkthrough
LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues: Walkthrough

I do not plan to have Mario Kart 8 forgotten on my channel but I don't really know when I'll do these videos. You can be sure, however, that they'll pop up on my channel at some point.

Mario Kart 8: Full Banana Cup
Mario Kart 8: Full Leaf Cup
Mario Kart 8: Full Lightning Cup
Mario Kart 8: All Courses
Mario Kart 8: All Course Intros

I also plan to host a Mario Kart 8 tournament. However, as my most recent videos haven't been getting a lot of views, I don't know how much views this one will get and how much people will know about the tournament. I'll try though so please try and participate.

Mario Kart 8: First DBPirate Tournament (Late July-Early/Mid August)

I'm not sure if the Mario Kart 8 OST will continue but please stay tuned for more news on it. Nintendo announced a ton of games at E3 2014 but not that much coming in 2014. Luckily, I plan to get the following games that they announced/showed:

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker (gameplay and/or possible story mode walkthrough)
Hyrule Warriors (gameplay and/or story mode walkthrough)
Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (gameplay, final smashes, characters, etc.)

Thanks for staying tuned with all the latest news on my channel and I hope you continue to support it! Be sure to check out Injustice: Gods Among Us: The Movie which I created to celebrate 3,000 subscribers and counting!

Injustice: Gods Among Us Mania

We have succesfully completed all of the chapters (1-12) of Injustice: Gods Among Us rather quickly and they can all be found in my Injustice: Gods Among Us Videos (Wii U) playlist on my YouTube channel page. The action doesn't have to end here however. Here's a detailed list at what's to come on our channel regarding Injustice.

Injustice: Gods Among Us: Full Story Mode (all of our chapters combined in one video)
Injustice: Gods Among Us: The Movie (and by "The Movie," I mean all the cutscenes + credits)
Injustice: Gods Among Us: Batgirl Gameplay (will include super move and other things)
Injustice: Gods Among Us: Scorpion Gameplay (see above)
Injustice: Gods Among Us: General Zod Gameplay (see above)
Injustice: Gods Among Us: All Super Moves (not including DLC)
Injustice: Gods Among Us: Worst to Best Super Moves (not including DLC)
Injustice: Gods Among Us: Top 10 Best Super Moves (not including DLC)
Injustice: Gods Among Us: Top 10 Worst Super Moves (not including DLC)
Injustice: Gods Among Us: All Stage Transitions (or at least in the stages that have transitions)
Injustice: Gods Among Us: Superman S.T.A.R. Lab Missions (other characters may be uploaded)
Injustice: Gods Among Us: All Endings (this will take a little bit as I have to do battles with all of the characters; not including DLC)
Injustice: Gods Among Us: All Intros + Outros (not including DLC)
Injustice: Gods Among Us: All Intros, Outros, and Super Moves (not including DLC)
Injustice: Gods Among Us: Battle Mode Gameplay (tentative title; possibly Full House mode)
Injustice: Gods Among Us: All Skins (or at least all the skins in the Wii U version)

There's probably other videos I can't think of off the top of my head but oh well.

NOTE ABOUT LOBO: Unfortunately, NetherRealm Studios felt like they had to make Lobo give his opponent an obscene hand gesture during both his Super Move and his S.T.A.R. Lab missions. They also seem to think blurring out said gesture is "okay." Due to this, I have not purchased the Lobo DLC character but have purchased Batgirl, Scorpion, and Zod instead. He will not be seen on any of my channel videos. Thank you for understanding and please look forward to the above videos.

July 2014 Update

As you have noticed, we have begun a walkthrough for Injustice: Gods Among Us on our Wii U. We currently have the chapters for Batman, Green Lantern, Aquaman, and The Joker up. The response to this walkthrough has been positive so far and I thank my viewers for that. I am trying to speed up the walkthrough and do more parts so I will have the "all cutscenes/movie" video ready by the time we have 3,000 subscribers! We have less than 20 to go so please keep supporting my channel! I also plan to do something related to Injustice for my 700 video mark as well. The walkthrough will continue as scheduled and will probably be finished early next week.

You may have noticed I have stopped my Mario Kart 8 OST. I may continue this at some point but for now, you should check out channels such as Yoshi's VGM and JezDayy. The Nintendo Digital Event Recaps are going to have to be severely delayed, if I do them at all so "please understand."

I also plan to host a Mario Kart 8 tournament at some point after we finish the Injustice walkthrough so stay tuned for more news.

E3 2014 Nintendo Digital Event Recaps

After I do the Mario Kart 8 track runthroughs (I have recorded the Star and Special Cups and will be uploading them both today and tomorrow; the retro cups will be up by the end of next week), I will be recording the E3 2014 Nintendo Digital Event from the eShop and will do recap videos of the games featured in it.

I did this previously with a Nintendo Direct in 2013 and with the Smash Bros. Direct earlier this year. After I do that, I will be uploading the full Mario Kart 8 soundtrack while my co-op buddy continues the LEGO City Undercover walkthrough.

Be sure to keep coming back to the website for more news! :)
