We’ve done it before and we did it again! That’s right, James, Michael and Delvin went to Nintendo’s most recent media preview event showcasing some of the biggest and best games The Big N was touting at E3 2014. Watch below for our hands-on demos of Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta 2, Yoshi’s Woolly World, and Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker.
It’s a VG Realness three-man crew this week. Join Delvin, James and Michael as they discuss the newest Ace Attorney game, Phoenix Wright: Dual Destinies. You won’t object when they also talk about their impressions from Gamercamp, getting hands-on with some of Nintendo’s holiday releases (with extra commentary expanding on our videos from last week), and all of the hottest news of the week.
Also: in a VG Realness first, the guys play a few rounds of The Metagame — a card debate game about games and culture — that is currently holding a Kickstarter. Which do you think will save the world? Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Cats: The Musical? (Thanks again to Eric Zimmerman, Colleen Macklin and John Sharp for sending us an preview deck!)
