I just wanted to let the community know that as of the time of this post (12:55 AM, AEST), Severe Tropical Cyclone Marcia is just off the coast of Queensland. It is expected to hit category 5 by landfall in a few hours time, and will be heading south. By the time it gets to me, it's predicted to have already reduced to a tropical low, but we're still expected to get some very strong winds. I may end up losing power, so there may be some absence from me.


Ah, the joys of living in a tropical environment.

So, because they decided to give more of a tease, NoJ decided to showcase 16 minutes of Majora's Mask 3D gameplay. The narration and game are both in Japanese, but that doesn't make it any less epic. Here's the video.



So, are you as excited for the game as I am?

Here's something you don't see every day. New ingame footage of the Zelda WiiU title :D



What I've posted here is a close-up with original audio, but there's another overdubbed version for english speakers. I just like being able to see it all and hear the sounds of the game.

If you love The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask anywhere near as much as I do (which is quite possible, lol), you will be excited to know that Nintendo have finally listened to their fans, and are working on a 3DS/2DS remake of the beloved title. Majora's Mask 3D is set to release in Spring 2015 (autumn 2015 for those of us in the Southern Hemisphere).


In an announcement via Nintendo Direct, Satoru Iwata stated "As we worked on the remake version, we set out to maintain the original level of challenge, while keeping the game accessible for anyone. So we also focused on making sure the gameplay experience was as smooth as possible."


I don't know about you, but this has me very excited. Majora's Mask was one of my favourites of the series, offering a probably the biggest replayability (discounting OoT3D's boss and gauntlet modes, of course). I'm pumped to see how they go with it. Will they base it on the Japanese original and make it its original difficulty, or will they follow the path of the US/EU release? Regardless, they should now be able to do away with the interrupt save feature altogether, since we can just enter sleep mode on the 3DS.


Finally, here's the trailer:

About 16 hours ago deviantart.com and SquareEnix started a contest. What can you win? How can you enter?


Well you will definately win 1000 US$, the FFXIII triology on XBOX 360 with a custom XBOX 360 and a custom XBOX 360 Controller, a Lightning Returns: FFXIII shirt and key chain, and to top it all off an original sketch by Tetsuya Nomura, all in one package!


You can enter by making a 2000(width)x500(height) drawing of Lightning in your own original costume and submiting it to deviantart.com. You have to be at least 13 years of age though to participate, kinda ironic huh?... The 3 best drawings will be chosen by Tetsuya Nomura. Also, all countries can take part in this contest, so it's not US only.


Simple isn't it? The grand prize up there ^ is available three times, which means three people can win it. You've got time until February 20th at 11:59 PM (PST), which is about 8 days.


Here's a Link for more info: http://moonbeam13.de...&utm_term=title

Together with Tecmo Koei, the creators of the Dynasty Warriors series, Nintendo is working on a new project called Hyrule Warriors for the Wii U. That title is not yet final though, so it might get a new one. It is also not yet known if there are any other playable characters besides Link, or if he'll be playable at all, since there isn't any other info, except for this trailer.


PLEASE NOTE: This is not the actual The Legend of Zelda that is supposed to come out for the Wii U in the future, but a spin-off.

Come one, come all! The GCN Gift Shop is open for business!


Would you like to have yourself a GCN branded t-shirt or accessory? Well, just in time for Christmas, you can do just that. These items are made to order thanks to our friends at the Spreadshirt team and are shipped out within one-two days of the order being placed. Here is an example of a recommended item:


1,width=280,height=280.png 2,width=280,height=280.png


As you can see, this particular shirt sports the official GCN logo on the front, while the back is customisable. When the order is made, you have the option to change the text on the back. USERNAME can be the name you use here, while the 00 is best made your user ID number (which can be found by looking at your profile link). A variety of t-shirt colours are at your disposal, so if black isn't your favourite, you can change the colour, though be certain that the colour scheme matches to the design.


Also available are items such as pinnable buttons, mugs, glasses, and hoodies, though we likely will be expanding to other products. The best news is that a commission from each sale is put into maintaining the community, so by making a purchase, you are giving back to the community.


To see our full range of items, click on the Gift Shop link at the top of the site, or visit http://the-gcn.spreadshirt.com, and get yourself an officially branded product.

I know how much you people love Pokémon so I've got nice news for ya'll. Pokémon X and Y each come in a bundle with a 2DS. Sadly though, it's just pre-installed, so you won't have a physical copy of the game and the 2DS's will NOT have a special design, so, sorry all you collectors out there.


They're available from today on and will cost about $149.99 in the states. The Y version will only be available in Toys R Us it seems.


Both Versions will also be available in Europe today for 149.00€, except for Germany. There it seems, only the X version will be available, but therefore there will be a bundle with Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Both of them will also cost 149.00€.


Note: Please correct me if there is any false info.

You may or may not have noticed, but there have been a few slight cosmetic tweaks performed here at The GCN.


I've modified the user group icons, because the previous ones looked like crap, lol. I've also made some slight edits to the Terms of Service. Some of them were worded a little bit iffy, so I updated them, as well as using a different font. If anyone can correctly identify it, I'll give you a cookie. =P I recommend you take a look at them, just in case you need a refresher.


On top of that, I have added a new profile field, for Nintendo Network ID. Basically, if you have a Wii U, you will have a NNID, so there's a field for that, should you want to share it.


I have also changed two of the user group names:


δελτοιδ has been changed to Deltazoid. I was originally planning on calling the group Betazoid, but considering it's the name of a Star Trek race, I figured I shouldn't. =P

Banned has been changed to Exiled. In addition, anyone who has been exiled will find themselves unable to return to the community, and instead, will find themselves experiencing something different.


So for now, that's it. I'm also working on trying to get some community gaming organised, though with the timezone differences, it may be a bit tricky.
