Skrillex Has A Video Game And It’s Awesome

It’s easy to hate on Skrillex since hating popular things just seems to be the status quo these days, but no matter which side of the Skrillex/dubstep fence you stand on, this game is definitely worth checking out.

The heavily 8-bit inspired Skrillex Quest mixes hints of Zelda, Journey, Ico, and Sword & Sworcery with trippy, glitchy, epileptic shock-inducing graphics. And, yes, it’s set to a Skrillex track (but it’s more chill and trance-y compared to his more violently wubby stuff) and uses iconic cues from his arsenal of songs as sound effects. If all that doesn’t sound like your cup of tea, just mute it, but it definitely adds to the overall experience.

The whole game can be completed in around 20 minutes. Check it out for free at SkrillexQuest.com.

It’s also worth mentioning that this was made by Jason Oda, the same guy who made the incredible Flash game based on one of my favorite 80’s sitcoms, Perfect Strangers.

Nintendo’s 2012 recruitment booklet.

If not for the fact that I’ve decided to not pursue a career in Japan for a number of reasons, I’d be honestly tempted to apply.

Regardless, the booklet’s awesomely designed.

‘Animal Crossing’ 3DS Is Officially Titled ‘Animal Crossing: New Leaf

Not sure how I feel about the title, but the game looks crazy fun. I can’t wait to waste away my days in my little virtual town and partying it up on the dancefloor to DJ K.K.’s crazy tunes.

Check out the latest trailer:

Limited Edition Animal Crossing & Mario 3DS XLs

And now the bad news: these are exclusive to Japan which means they’re totally region-locked. It’s a shame I can’t read a lick of Japanese because I’d totally rock that Animal Crossing piece like there was no tomorrow.

‘Pokemon Black & White 2’ Developed For The Hardest Of Hardcore Trainers

If phrases like effort values, ev training, and IV spreads are completely foreign to you and you’ve never checked Smogon.com while breeding and training your ultimate Pocket Monster team, you can go right on ahead and skip this post.

For the rest of us, rejoice! The latest installment of franchise will include a post-game that’s better suited to the hardest of hardcore trainers.

Siliconera caught up with Seth McMahill, Assistant Manager of Product Marketing at Nintendo, who had this to say:

I mean, there’s even areas [inBlack/White 2] in Join Avenue that specifically will lower and raise EV values. I actually found that out online, but if you look at Black/White 2, there’s a lot that really relates directly to that. Like the unlimited dungeon, where you can go and continue to level up, fighting Pokémon that are at an equal level to yours, and continue to get experience points.

Pokémon fans, in the past, always had to deal with what we call ‘grinding the grass,’ where after you get around to beating the Elite 4, it’s like, “What we do now? Keep going through that, or go fight in the grass where characters are 20 levels below??

But this time around, this is a sequel. And all the core fans knew about [EVs and IVs] already. They’ve been talking about it constantly, and it was a big part of Pokémon. And although it was in the undercurrent before as you mentioned, this time we decided, let’s bring it out into the open. Let’s open up the complexity of Pokémon for people who want it.

I first played Pokemon when it originally came out for the original Game Boy waaaay back in the day. Since then, I’ve sunk literally thousands of hours into raising the ultimate fighting machines, so I’m personally stoked about this new addition to the game. Plus, it’ll keep O.G.’s like myself from getting bored after plowing through the main game.

YouTube, SoundCloud, Skype, And Apple As Game Boy Carts

These custom carts by 3liter are pretty awesome, but it would have been a blajillion times more awesome if YouTube and Skype were Game Boy Camera carts. Just sayin’.

This Pokémon Arcade Looks Awesome.

In the ever-growing list of rad shit that Japan gets and doesn’t share with the rest of the world comes Pokémon Tretta, an arcade game from Marvelous AQL. The game let’s you hunt for Pokémon on engage in 3-on-3 battles. When you catch a Pokémon, you’re given a Tretta — a real-world hunk of plastic with the caught Pokémon’s picture on it to collect and trade with friends. Trettas can then be scanned by the game to use in battle.

Pokémon Tretta drops in Japan this July. Accessories like Tretta cases from Tomy will be released shortly after.

There are no words for the amount of jealousy and loathing currently coursing through my veins.
