Hyrule Warriors – CONFIRMED to have Online Play, Miiverse Integration – MegaGamerMan Where you at?


The Japanese webpage for Hyrule Warriors CONFIRMS that Hyrule Warriors will have online play. However, it seems like it will a unique mode, possibly separate from local-campaign co-op. But online play is indeed confirmed for Hyrule Warriors. Auto posting to Miiverse has also been confirmed as well.

As for the title that says MegaGamerMan where you at…..well. On the latest LogiKast with The Zen Gamer, MegaGamerMan was insistent that Hyrule Warriors didn’t have online play, while I said we should wait for an official confirmation from Nintendo. Moral of the story, wait for official confirmation before rushing to conclusions. I found that out the hard way with the whole Lucina, Chrom fiasco earlier this month.

XType+ Review – Wii U

Xtype Plus

In the interest of full disclosure, I’m a huge fan of old school arcade style shoot-em ups. When I first heard of XType+ I was a little giddy, as there aren’t that many as I would like on the Wii U e-shop. The game certainly fills that niche, but is it satisfying and worth buying? To answer that, let’s break it down.
