Nintendo launched two of the biggest games on the same day this week, and it seems like Amazon consumers have replied with their wallets. Super Smash Bros for Wii U is currently number 2 on Amazon’s best seller list, while Pokemon Alpha Sapphire is number 1. Pokemon Omega Ruby is number 4 and the hard to find Super Smash Bros for Wii U GameCube bundle is number 7. The PS4 continues its hot streak at 8th while the Xbox One isn’t too far behind at 12th. Just as a side note, Amazon doesn’t sell Wii U systems on their site. Check out all the best sellers here. Thanks to llliilliill for the tip!

The Jimquisition has left The Escapist and cut all ties with advertisers. Jim Sterling has taken to Patreon to fund a new Jimquisition website, which will host three main features: the very same Jimquisition web series we’ve all come to know and love, written games reviews such as Jim has previously done for Destructoid and The Escapist, and a weekly podcast that may or may not actually have guests joining Jim in his ramblings.
As of this writing, The Jimquisition’s Patreon page has already garnered 1200 supporters and raised over $5,000 in funds. All content will be provided free of charge to everyone who may wish to access it, and all content will be provided regularly without any milestones needing to be reached in order for said content to be produced (there was once a single, all-purpose milestone of $6000 a month; it was quickly removed).

With CoD: Advanced Warfare, you’re fighting a war 40 years in the future. Could regenerating health be possible then? And how does it compare to the science of health packs?
