New Yoshi's Island game on 3DS~

Seems a new Yoshi's Island game was announced this morning on the Nintendo Direct presentation. Along with many other new titles. This is the only one that interests me though. My first impression is that I don't like the art style that much. They have so much to work with on the 3DS and this is what they come up with? The backgrounds and levels themselves look fine. They're actually pretty reminiscent to the original in their own way. But Yoshi, baby Mario, the enemies, and some other things... no. I'm not really feeling it. I'm not sure what they've done here with the character and object designs. I could think of numerous ways to make them better. Don't get me wrong. The game will probably still be very good game play wise and just in general. I just think the art and design of things could be much better. I'm still excited to see more information emerge on this game and I will definitely pick it up when it comes out. I'd never miss a Yoshi's Island game as a long time fan of the original on SNES. The DS game was alright too just not great. I'm hoping this one will really shine in its own way. Anyways, till next time~

Tales of Xillia Collector's Edition~

Get ready to throw your money at Bamco for once. They've actually got a pretty dang sweet LE coming for Tales of Xillia in honor of the 15th anniversary of the series. Participating retailers will have it up for pre-order at some point. It was just announced today so gotta give it time. Although, if you're in Europe you can already pre-order it off Bamco's online store right now. Obviously this is going sell out like hotcakes pretty fast so get it as soon as possible when it's available. Here's to hoping that Amazon will have it. Anyways, buy up Tales fans! Probably won't get another sweet deal like this from Bamco any time soon.
