Say whatever you want Kid Icarus for 3DS is fun. Also, don't try to get in the mind of Nintendo fanboys. That shit doesn't work. They have their controller in the other port lol

My only guess is a combination of a few people looking at the game with rose-tinted glasses getting others to believe the game was great, people only looking at the game and feeling the desire to play it, then to top it off, the inclusion of Pit in Smash Brothers.

And, like Hypertrooper said, a new Kid Icarus would be a refreshing change from Nintendo's current line of games.

I think Nintendo ultimately decided to make a new one because it was almost like creating a new IP that they knew would be a hit.

Regardless, I still don't like that they decided to show off over half the game before it came out.

Even if I try to avoid that stuff (I remember not watching the Tip of the Spear footage, if you stay current with Halogaf, you are going to see and hear pretty much anything that's out there prior to release.

I never owned Kid Icarus for the NES. I remember playing through the very first level at a friend's house, but that was it. And I don't think it really hooked me. I did own The Goonies II, though! lol fun game actually.

The UNSC Infinity is reproducing environments for the Spartan IVs to train in. One of the maps is a Forerunner solar facility, which hasn't been found up to Halo 3. Does that mean Spartan Ops takes place after Halo 4's campaign, or is this an environment found between the events of Halo 3 and Halo 4?

I've read several times that the chief will actually meet up with the spartan IV's from the infinity somewhere in the campaign, so I think it's safe to guess the spartan ops missions will take place slightly before or during the Halo 4 campaign.

Did you read Glasslands? If not, I'd recommend it to you. But lately I read comments at HaloWaypoint that Wraparound's solar facility is on Requiem, the shield world where the Chief is or will be. Is it true? Is it stated in the GameInformer article? I do not know.

I'm not a fan of Karen's writing style, so I haven't picked it up yet. 343 said I won't need to read the new novels to understand Halo 4, but I'm worried I won't appreciate the small details without reading them.

Is Glasslands an enjoyable read? I'd rather skim a plot synopsis than read the book solely for those details.

It was enjoyable for me. And yeah I dislike her writing style too. I could never finish any of her Gears Of War or Republic Commando novels. Is there not a preview chapter available? Try to read it, if you do not like it, read a plot synopsis. At least to answer your hologram question:
At the end of Glasslands, ONI constructs a research facility on the Onyx Shield World or how it is called now: Trevelyan. I always thought that this is the source for the Forerunner-like maps in the Infinity Multiplayer. But if Wraparound is truly set on Requiem, it means that ONI was already on Requiem which I can not believe.


The Witcher 2 is kicking my ass a lot. shit.

Because it's a cool premise with a lot of potential, potential which Uprising delivers on and then some.

I'm only counting games that had demonstrations or actually intended to release before the next E3 came around across all 3 conferences. A short CGI trailer falls outside of those bounds.

Same people that think Metroid is one of Nintendo's cornerstone franchises.
