Sakurai’s Daily Screenshot - August 29, 2014 (b)

"From Xenoblade Chronicles, Shulk joins the battle!! He’s not the type of character that would usually appear in the Smash Bros. series, but we worked really hard to make it happen. We’re very happy with how he turned out. This stage is Gaur Plain.

Shulk’s sword, the Monado, slashes enemies with a beam when activated, so it can strike from long range. What really makes this weapon unique is that when the Monado Arts are activated, it can change Shulk’s features and abilities! Emerge victorious in battle by changing your abilities strategically!!

[List of Monado Arts]
翔 (Jump): higher jumps, lower defense.
疾 (Speed): faster movement, weaker attacks.
盾(Shield): higher defense, slower movement.
斬(Buster): stronger attacks, weaker launch ability.
撃(Smash): Stronger launch ability, weaker attacks, lower defense against launching.” - Masahiro Sakurai

I find it interesting they released the 2ds for people with less money and for people who didnt or couldnt use the 3d feature and now they’re basically saying “yeah but its your fault for not wanting 3d that u wont be able to play these new games”

Nintendo News!

New 3DS consoles are announced in the Nintendo Direct today, appropriately named “New 3DS” and “New 3DS LL”, respectively. These new models include a faster RAM, upgraded NFC standards, new buttons and an additional smaller circle pad, re-positioning of the card slot, power button and stylus slot. But two features that got me excited are (1) better 3D veiwing experience and (2) customize-able covers!

According to the source, the new consoles utilizes the front camera to detect the position of the eyes and automatically the screen adopts to the tilt. This significantly increases the viewing angle in 3D mode.

For me, this is what attracted me most of the new features (made me think of upgrading). The plastic covers are highly swappable which gives you more freedom in how your OWN console will look like. The home screen will also have themes giving you a highly personalized look and feel of the console.

These are announced to be released in Japan by October 11, 2014 (which is before the Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, they could do bundles?), costing 16,000 yen and 18,800 yen for the regular and XL variant, respectively. No international release date has been confirmed. s4

Start your Friday off right with these images from Disney’s newest short film, Feast, set to play before Big Hero 6 in theaters this November.

USA Today has a great feature on animator/Feast director Patrick Osborne, the most recent Disney employee to see his successful pitch to John Lasseter come to the big screen as part of a short story pitching program at Disney. Osborne has worked on the animated projects Tangled, Bolt, Surf’s Up, Paper Man, and Wreck-It Ralph as well as animating characters as live-action visual effects on The Chronicles of Narnia: the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and I Am Legend. Read the interview here, if you’re into heartwarmingly cute dogs or happiness.

Dear WWE

Dear wwe,

Please give me a two hour segment featuring an empty ring with Paul Heyman and Dean Ambrose with nothing but a microphone discussing whatever they feel like. 

That would be entertaining.

Thanks.

↳Regulus Arcturus Black

REGULUS — “The Little King” | “The King Star”

ETYMOLOGY:  According to the Babylonians, Regulus is “the star that stands at the lion’s breast” (referring to Leo). Regulus means “the little king” or “prince” in Latin (diminutive of rex — “king”). The star is first believed to have been referred to as Regulus by Copernicus. It is likely a translation of the Hellenistic Greek word Basilikos (“little king”) used by Geminos and Ptolemy, though it could also be a translation of the Babylonian Lugal, which means “king.” The Arabic name for the star is Qalb al-Asad, meaning “heart of the lion.”

NOTABLE FEATURES:
•  Also known as Alpha Leonis.
•  Brightest star in the Leo constellation.
•  22nd brightest star in the sky.
•  Nearly on the ecliptic (path of the Sun).
•  Regularly occulted (covered) by the moon.
•  150 times brighter than the sun.
•  77 light years away.

ZINE REVIEW - JENNIFER LO - WHERE THE LIGHT ENDS 

We received this little gem in the post this week, from Bristol based photographer Jennifer Lo. We first featured her work over a year ago on Splash & Grab and here is a little update on some of what she’s been up to since then. First impressions; Nice heavyweight paper and semi transparent dust jacket give a good feel to the zine. Photographs are eerily beautiful, some almost haunting. If photography is about light, which it sort of is, then Jennifer really gets it. Daylight creatively cuts darker images and illuminates brighter ones equally. First limited editions have sold out but new copies are apparently being made so check her store soon here.
