DOG COSPLAYING AS UMBREON, I CHOOSE YOU!!!

Not sure if this Pokémon dog cosplay by lefeon-ex is awesome or mean. Can it see? Does it care? But what if it wanted to dress up as Psyduck? Do all dogs really go to heaven?

Mega Man x Kidrobot Mini Figure Series
Kidrobot will be following up their successful Street Fighter line with a Mega Man series. No photos have been revealed yet, but my wild guess is that most of the toys will be a standard Mega Man sculpt with different colorways representing the different power-ups, like the palette swaps in the games.
This is pretty cool since the Munny platform already lends itself well to Mega Man’s design. I think for a lot of kids who grew up in the ’80s and then found out about customizing Munnys, their first idea was to do a Mega Man piece.

N64 FIGURE TEASED BY ESC-TOY
With officially licensed Uncharted figures under his belt and homages to PlayStation, Atari 2600, and Super Mario, it’s no secret that Erick Scarecrow is a big fan of gaming. His latest figure is based on the most misunderstood controller of all time, the N64. Erick flips the controller upside down to create a clever, skeletal face. We’ll be sure to post official photos once they surface.

HOW NINTENDO PLANS TO RUIN THE POKEMON FRANCHISE
With almost every new generation of Pokémon games players have been able to transfer their hard-earned Pocket Monsters from one generation to the next completely free of charge. That’s all about to change.
[[MORE]]
It’s finally happened. Nintendo has discovered a way to further capitalize on the deep bonds between trainers and their Pokémon.

Starting December 27, 3DS owners will be able to download Pokémon Bank, an app that lets you store up to 3,000 Pokémon online so that you can trade them between games. Anyone who downloads it by January 31, 2014 gets a 30-day trial subscription. After that, it’s $4.99 a year. Not too bad, but it’s the only way to transfer Pokémon from Generation V (Pokémon Black & White and their sequels) to Pokémon X & Y.
Sorry, Nintendo, but this is bullshit. Any time a company forces customers to pay for something that’s been free for more than a decade, I’m forced to call shenanigans.
Back in the Ruby & Sapphire days, Nintendo released Pokémon Box for the Gamecube. It let you hook up your Game Boy Advance to the console and dump Pokémon onto a Gamecube memory card. This was perfect for things like collecting and breeding - especially once you ran out of room to store your Pokémon on the actual GBA cart. But here’s the thing: Pokémon Box was a standalone thing strictly for storing and organizing Pokémon - you didn’t NEED it for trading Pokémon between games.
Pokémon Bank takes the same concept of storage, but puts it online and makes you pay for it. Considering most people will probably only buy this for the transferring capabilities, it seems like Nintendo found a quick and easy way to make A LOT of money. Sure, it’s only $5 a year, but that money adds up when millions of players around the world are paying it. It’s hard not to feel taken advantage of.
 There’s also some pretty scary drawbacks to hosting your Pocket Monsters on the cloud. These were taken from the official Pokémon Bank FAQ page.


So, once you store your Pokémon, pay five bucks a year or lose them forever. Kind of like ransom, only you have the option of backing them up to your 3DS game whenever you want. Just don’t forget to renew to subscription. Mark a calendar. Set an alarm. Not the most convenient thing in the world.
The good news is, Pokémon Bank comes with a companion app, Poké Transporter. Poké Transporter lets you transfer any of your Pokémon to Pokémon bank without having to use multiple 3DS systems.
But what if you just want to transfer your dudes without having to use Pokémon Bank? Let’s consult our good friend, the FAQ.

"No, that is not possible. Poké Transporter is companion software that works together with Pokémon Bank to transfer Pokémon from your copies of Pokémon Black, Pokémon White, Pokémon Black 2, and Pokémon White 2 to your own private Boxes hosted online through the Pokémon Bank service. After downloading Pokémon Bank, you can download Poké Transporter for no charge.”
Well then…
Okay, so maybe there’s a way to transfer Pokémon directly from the B&W games to the X&Y games for free without having to store anything online - like, maybe you can do it locally somehow using two systems like you could with from the DIamond/Pearl/Platinum games to the B&W games. Makes sense, right?
WRONG!

Are you kidding me? Why the hell not? The technology clearly exists, so why make loyal fans jump through hoops to do things that were more streamlined (and free!) in previous generations?
Nintendo could have at least done us a solid by letting us store a small amount of Pokémon in Pokémon Bank for free using the memory on our systems, then offering the online storage as a paid upgrade. Or at least let us transfer stuff without needing the online subscription.
Maybe I’m making a bigger deal out of this than it really is. Maybe it’ll be awesome and I’ll be wrong. Five bucks is nothing, but it’s about more than just that. Transfering shit between games used to be free! Regardless, I’m probably just going to transfer my Pokémon while I have the free trial subscription and then never mess with it again.

Get Pokemon Y For $20

Toys “R” Us, you done FUCKED up.

I’m about 80% sure Toys “R” Us messed up the price on Pokemon Y with this ad, but they’re selling Pokemon Y for $20. You can view the ad online, and if they don’t honor the price mismatch, you can always go to Walmart or Target, walk up to the customer service desk, and ask them to honor the price match on TRU's mistake. The ad can be found here on page 4 and can be pulled up in any store to match prices.

Corrupted Super Mario 64 Is Super Trippy
Here’s some footage from a really tripped out/corrupted Super Mario 64 cartridge. It’s fun to watch and overall insane, and I’d love to actually play a version that runs this damaged. Peep the video below:

80’s Throwback Crew Neck from King of Games

The King of Games have released their latest sweatshirt based on classic Nintendo games. Surprisingly, this one’s a crew neck. I usually don’t like crew necks but since the graphic is so 80’s it totally works. It’s just over $100 and comes in three colorways.

Hit the link for the gallery of all the colors this fine garment is available in.

The Other Mario Movie
Not to toot my own magic flute, but I know a lot about videogames. But I had no idea a Mario Bros. anime existed.
Super Mario Bros.: Peach-Hime Kyushutsu Dai Sakusen! was released in 1986 and never made it out of its Japanese homeland. Directed by ex-Sanrio employee, Masami Hata, this was the very first film based on a videogame. It was first released in theaters (which is strange considering its 60 minute runtime) and then on VHS, never to receive a DVD version.
Need this in your collection? Unfortunately, all the coins in the Mushroom Kingdom couldn’t get you copy. Apparently the tape is even hard to find in Japan, let alone the West. Its Wikipedia page even claims it to be one of the rarest films of all time.
Someone must have gotten a hold of one though, since you can view its fansub on YouTube.
