Zack Snyder to direct Justice League right after Man of Steel 2: Batman vs. Superman

Justice LeagueThe long awaited Justice League film is happening, and it’s happening sooner than most thought it would. Zack Snyder masterfully directed Man of Steel, which was my favorite Superman movie so-far. His upcoming sequel, currently under the working title Batman vs. Superman, is ramping up production, and has already been filming in various locations. Costume tests have been done, showing Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman in costume together.

And now, it’s been announced that Zack Snyder will also be directing Justice League.

Release Dates and Characters for Super Smash Bros. on Wii U and 3DS

Super Smash Bros. Wii UI’m a big fan of the Super Smash Bros. series of games, having started out with the Nintendo 64 version of the game. This year, for the first time ever, they’re bringing Smash Bros. to mobile, with a release on the Nintendo 3DS in addition to the Wii U version.

And from the looks of things, this could be the best edition yet. They’re releasing the same game onto both of their platforms, within the same year. There will be differences in graphics, with the Wii U one obviously being next generation graphics. Both will also feature online play, but not cross console (probably because of some technical limitations in allowing that).

The one thing that I’ll miss from the Wii version of the game is the Subspace Emissary. If you don’t know what that is, it’s a huge game that you played through to unlock many of the characters in the game. I had a great time playing it, and will miss it this time around.

When can we get the game?

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U was released on November 21, 2014. – Order the Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Bundle
Super Smash Bros. for 3DS was released on October 3, 2014.

I’ll update with exact release dates when I know them. Feel free to bookmark this entry and check back.

What characters are in the new Super Smash Bros. games?

Zero Suit Samus

We’ll start with the veterans:

Super Mario Galaxy 2 Release Date is May 23

One of the absolute best games for the Nintendo Wii is Super Mario Galaxy.  I had such a good time playing through that game, that I am hoping to find the time to play through it all again.  In fact, I played through it twice the first go around, because of what happens when you get all of the stars.  When it was over, I was hoping for more.  I did not expect Nintendo to deliver, though, as there hasn’t been a proper Mario sequel since the Nintendo Entertainment System, with Super Mario Bros. 1, 2 and 3.  On the Super NES, there was the sort of sequel, Yoshi’s Island: Super Mario World 2.  But That wasn’t a proper sequel game.
