The Nintendo Switch is a brand new Nintendo console releasing tomorrow (March 3rd, 2017) as of this writing and although it’s launch window line-up is a bit shaky (honestly REALLY shaky), there’s been a consensus at Nintendo that they have enough to keep us gamers occupied until the holiday season. But the game Nintendo has focused on most to carry their new systems launch is The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
Originally a Wii U game, BOTW (this will be the short-hand I use throughout the review) has been delayed numerous times, now it has become an introduction to Nintendo’s new system as well as a swan song for their struggling Wii U platform. The delays have come with promises of the series exploring new boundaries, and providing a highly polished experience.
The name Butch Hartman might ring a few bells if you watched Nick over the years. From making a show about a young lad who has magical fairies that grant him wishes too letting the viewer explore a secret agent/spy show made up of talking animals, he has taken us on some really funny adventures. But what about when it’s time to get a bit more serious or have more action elements? The Fairly Odd Parents had moments where things get serious or action heavy but that wasn’t the main focus of the show.
A show having such a focus is unique, specifically for Nick which didn’t really have much action/superhero shows in the early 2000’s. Danny Phantom is Butch’s second television show on Nick and it lasted for three seasons. It follows the teenage boy of Danny who has the special ability to turn himself into a ghostly being. He uses this power to defend his home town from various spirits that cause havoc.
When it originally aired, it was a breath of fresh air for the network and really filled a hole that felt missing from it’s line-up of shows. But does the Phantom hold up in recent years? Or does it evaporate into a specter into the night? Lets grab our Fenton Thermos and try to catch some ghosts as we tackle the first season of this haunting show.
Making a game is difficult as it takes time and talent to make a quality piece of software. Many studios have accomplished this over the years but one should be noted. Yacht Club Games went from a band new studio making a Kickstarter project to into one of the many faces making up indie game development this current generation. With the heroic knight embarking on various adventures across many platforms, having a cameo or two and getting new content to dig into this year…..I felt it was a good idea to discuss with the shovels behind the knight.
Sean Velasco of Yacht Club Games was kind enough to answer a few questions I had about the studio, Shovel Knight and other interesting topics. It was a great honor to speak with him and you can find out more about Yacht Club Games by visiting their official website.
Below is the full interview I had with Velasco and I hope you all enjoy! It was a lot of fun speaking with him and we at 3WIREL will continue covering everything Shovel Knight as further information comes out.
Hello Ladies and Gentlemen, allow me to tell you the story of RAYMAN! Continue reading

Skylanders has been around for quite a few entries now, bringing with it dashing colorful worlds with characters filled with personality, and a controversial figure-dlc system that encourages teens and parents to grab as many toys as possible to experience all the variety in gameplay the series has to offer. It’s also one of Activision’s defining franchises, with a run time toward 5 years, and one of the most consistent franchises out in gaming today.
Skylanders Imaginators, the latest in the franchise, brings familiarity mixed in with new tricks, and a very special guest character who’ve no one has seen playable in a video game since 2010 (2011 internationally outside the U.S.) and that character is Crash Bandicoot. A franchise many have been asking to return to the video game scene. Which is why I parodied the title of this review to be similar to the first Skylanders entry: “Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure”

Ya know besides everything.
That’s right guys it’s not a joke this is really happening and I’m just baffled as everybody else. Out of all the franchises to make a comeback this was the one I never expected to return and I didn’t expect Accolade to rise from the dead either. But here we are it just goes to show you that anything is possible keep dreaming. Also memes were a mistake.
