Green of Gaming: Legend of Zelda (Breath of the Wild Kiosk Impressions – Theme Color)

The Legend of Zelda is one of Nintendo’s most profitable and prolific franchises in terms of popularity and critical reception, it has spawned numerous titles, spinoffs and other mediums all around. Like many franchises that follow the trilogy pillar, the first game is usually good but not great, then the sequel follows up and it becomes even better than expected, the third ramps it up even further. Well, The Zelda series has been kinda weird with the main-line series time gaps between the 2nd and 3rd installment, among the handheld and spinoff titles.

Then later on, comes in the Nintendo 64, with an open-ended title like no other on the system for the series, Ocarina of Time, much like Super Mario 64, this one really pushes the system to it’s limits and explores new territories that the series hasn’t done before in the earlier games. Hath come the later eras with more great and dividing entries, especially Wind Waker, you should know by now that Nintendo is very meticulous about their franchises and having Zelda in their category is no exception.

After the long-awaited Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, I had to wonder, as someone completely new to the series, it was only a matter of time to finally say some of the impressions I had shortly playing the demo at the Nintendo Booth Store Kiosk (a few times).

Fans of the original Constructor are happy about the forthcoming of the Constructor HD Remake, although delays have been plagued for this one long-anticipated and undercovered remake. Fans, prepare to be disappointed yet again, because the official page ran by System 3, has concluded that they are facing issues with other games related to the genre conflicting with the sales among the retailers that the physical release of Constructor HD is coming to Steam, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch (which was said to be even more later). They said that the biggest hurdle is retailers, especially in the USA, are not confident about the release of the game where System 3 claims that there’s not much to be able to do in this situation. However, in order to remedy the long waiting period of this remake, System 3 has revealed more content for the fans eager to see and enjoy. Here is a quote of what those content are with a video provided above:

In order to shorten the waiting period, a few of the Undesirables were presented today. These figures can entrust the player to disturb competitors. So you can go back to hippies, killer clowns, ghosts, chattering craftsmen, psychos, gangsters, thieves and even Hitmans.

Sonic Boom Season 2 – Four-Part Episode In-Coming (RUMOR)

Sonic Boom continues to air with it’s second season impressing many with sharper writing and more on-point humor. But the show might get some serious episodes coming up. Discovered by Donnie (), the show is getting a four-part episode (hour long special) in the future called ‘Robots from the Sky’. 

From the sounds of things, this implies that Sonic and friends fight a major threat. Considering the show is part of the cannon that Rise of Lyric comes from (but it rarely ever puts much attention on that), this could be the show’s introduction to the games villain Lyric. He tries to take over the world and Sonic must work with allies & foes alike to take him down.

I’m looking forward to seeing what comes from this but please don’t take this as an announcement. This is a rumor due to no official confirmation from the creators, SEGA or Boomerang/Cartoon Network being released yet. 

UPDATE – (3/28/2017)

Official writer on Sonic Boom came out to confirm the four-part episode via tweet.

Spider-Man: Homecoming – Trailer #2 (July 2017 Release)

Marvel’s iconic wall-crawler is making his big screen return with Spider-Man Homecoming produced by Sony and Marvel Studios. The film takes place after Captain America: Civil War where Tony Stark gives Peter Parker a upgraded suit. Now trying to further his career as a super hero, he faces many challenges, with one being fighting a major villain on his own.

What makes this trailer so interesting, is that it covers more serious elements to the story. Peter and Tony fighting with each other, Peter making his own suit later in the film and implications that Peter has direct conversations with the films major villain all indicate a story that balances humor and drama. Early trailers made the film look more comedic but this latest one helps show that the film will have more serious moments when the time calls for them.

It’s releasing July of 2017 and we will have more information as further details come out.
