Animal Crossing: A New Leaf was my first Animal Crossing game but as charming as it was, I ended up ejecting the cart from my Nintendo 3DS XL and never returned to it since. This is one of the games that would be more suitable on a smartphone or tablet. I have no intention of picking up Happy Home Designer by its lonesome but that regular sized New Nintendo 3DS bundle piqued my interest just a tiny bit.

Forza Motorsport 6 may be the first Forza game since the third entry that I personally wanted to play. If you haven’t done so already, you should head over to your Xbox One and download the demo. It’s a very tasty demo for a very impressive looking racer. But as impressive as it looks, I don’t have room for it in 2015. I’ll pick up a copy If the price was $30 or so but other than that it’s going to be a 2016 title.

Super Mario Maker looks like it’s everything I wanted LittleBigPlanet to be. LittleBigPlanet was its best when I was playing with Media Molecule’s creations. User created levels fell apart far too often but I didn’t blame the creators of those levels, I blamed the creator of the tools. The core platforming was inconsistent so it was tough to build anything that required precision. Super Mario Maker may not have all the pizzazz of LittleBigPlanet’s creation toolset but it does have that sweet Mario feel to the platforming. Between the two, I’d choose the latter any day of the week.

Hideo Kojima’s last Metal Gear Solid game is just a few days away. I love this series for its unmatched ability to walk the tight rope between wackiness and serious tone. What other series can pull off a crotch grab between two soldiers with such a straight face? I look forward to unraveling the mysteries behind the giant flaming space whale and why Quiet felt it was appropriate to wear so little on the battlefield. I just hope I can get used to Keifer as Snake. That’s still weird to me.

Once Gears of War: Ultimate Edition hits $19.99, I’m going to grab myself a copy. Gears of War ushered in the the last generation of consoles for me. It was that iconic Mad World trailer that caught my attention and convinced me that this was a game that I had to get an Xbox 360 for. 2006 was so long ago…

Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power debuts next week on Steam. I enjoyed the first Trine but didn’t take to Trine 2 like I thought I would. I like the idea of Trine more than the actual game itself; it’s just not as fun to play. Everything feels too floaty and imprecise for a platformer. It is undeniably pretty though.

There were many games shown off during Gamescom 2015 through gameplay demonstrations and trailers. One of them was DICE’s Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst. It’s quite the looker and one that I’ve pre-ordered. The original Mirror’s Edge was a one of a kind game that no one successfully replicated since. I just hope they will tell us why no one secures the ventilation ducts in these fancy buildings. Not even a HEPA filter?

Galak-Z: The Dimensional is finally coming out next week and I think it’s one of those day one games that I’m gonna have to get. The 20% off for PlayStation Plus members helps. Judging by the early footage like this GiantBomb Quick Look, it’s shaping up to be that summer game that I need in my life right now.

Do you use Google+?

Is Google+ still a thing? The news of Google decoupling Google+ and YouTube got me thinking about Google’s social media platform. I don’t know anyone who uses it and it doesn’t appear to be popular in Canada. Checking on the number of “followers” on the GameDealsCanada Google+ page

Now I’m considering shutting it down. I even threw out the idea of shutting down the feed on Google+ and this was the sole response:

“Unfortunately no, I follow you on Facebook too but I discovered you here first…”

So yeah, I think that’s the end of GameDealsCanada’s run on Google+. For me, it’ll be one less thing to worry about from an administration standpoint.

Street Fighter V doesn’t launch until some time in 2016 but those who pre-ordered can participate in the online beta running until July 28th at 9PM ET (6PM PT). If you need details, I highly recommend you check out this NeoGAF thread. I’m looking forward to it even though I’ll likely get my ass handed to me. I haven’t played a Street Fighter game since Super Street Fighter IV so this should be fun.

Journey is making its way to the PlayStation 4 next week. The PlayStation 3 version was my 2012 game of the year because it made me feel things, man. Like anger and stuff. Seriously though, it’s a game that everyone should sit down and play from beginning to end. I would get the PlayStation 4 version but since I own the game on disc, I’m not eligible for the free version.

About that Amazon.ca Prime Day

So Amazon.ca’s Prime Day was essentially a bust for the majority of people. Nothing mind blowing popped up throughout the day for video games category or in any other category for that matter. And anytime something decent appeared, people were quick to buy it up.

I wouldn’t have paid $79.99 for Prime Day. Hell, I wouldn’t even redeem my free trial for it.

I wonder how Amazon will respond next year. I wonder if they’ll even hold another one. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
