We’ve got a team of gaymers headed to E3 next week, but if you’re like me and can’t make it, Nintendo would like you to know they’ve got you covered! Starting on Tuesday, June 10, at 9:00 am PST, they will air the Nintendo Digital Event, basically an online version of an E3 press conference.  So it’s for everyone! Just visit e3.nintendo.com and check out all the 3DS and Wii U on tap for 2014 and beyond. Immediately following the Digital Event, Nintendo Minute: Live @ E3 will offer a post-show recap including even more information.

Later on that Tuesday, starting at 4:00 pm PST, Nintendo will broadcast the Super Smash Bros. Invitational Tournament. Streaming live on Nintendo’s Twitch channel, you can watch 16 Super Smash Bros. warriors compete on the Wii U game! In addition, that Twitch channel will be broadcasting Nintendo Treehouse: Live @ E3 during the convention, offering game reveals, visits from developers like Shigeru Miyamoto and footage of game demos from the Nintendo booth on the show floor!

I know it’s nowhere near as much fun as actually being at E3, but it’s something!

SingStar is turning 10 years old this week, but they’re the ones giving us a present!

To celebrate a decade of karaoke gaming, Sony has announced that SingStar is heading for the PlayStation 4 later this year. And it’ll have a new look and new features, including the ability to use your smartphone as a microphone! The app will work with both the PS3 and PS4 versions of SingStar, and on most iOS and Android devices. In addition to using your phone as a mic, you’ll also be able to create personal playlists for the game.

From the first installment on – way back in the year 2000 – The Sims has had a venerable history of giving players choice in how to form relationships, shrugging off the restrictive heterosexual-only mechanics that have hamstrung more recent games like Tomodachi Life.  It turns out, however, that not all parts of the real world have been progressing in the right direction either, resulting in The Sims 4, the series’ latest installment, running afoul of Russia’s infamous “gay propaganda” law.

Bravely Default, if you haven’t already heard, is a new game from Square Enix and the a spiritual successor to Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light. The game follows a ragtag team of heroes on their quest to purify the 4 Crystals located around the world and restore order. Classic Square Enix. Bravely Default, however, takes several interesting twists and turns that keep this formula fresh and kept this JRPG veteran on his toes.

It even manages to throw a twist in how the genre traditionally portrays gender in battle.

This week is the Eurovision Song Contest, so I got really excited to see which songs from this year would be included in the SingStore Update, but unfortunately, there’s just one of the previous winners from 2012. Hopefully they’ll have some in the next update, but now that they’re doing them monthly, the wait is going to be interminable! Anyway, here’s what you can look forward to adding to your SingStar library this week. And if you’re a fan of the adorable Bruno Mars, you’re in luck!

“So Good” by B.O.B.
“Black Chandelier” by Biffy Clyro
“Breakfast At Tiffany’s” by Deep Blue Something
“Euphoria” by Loreen
“Welcome To The Black Parade” by My Chemical Romance
“You Keep Me Hanging On” by The Supremes
“Disco Inferno” by The Trammps
“When I Was Your Man,” “Grenade,” “It Will Rain,” “Just The Way You Are,” and The Lazy Song” by Bruno Mars

I’m not a big fan of “Euphoria,” even if it did win Eurovision, but I could be tempted by “Disco Inferno” and even “Breakfast At Tiffany’s” just for the cheese factor. I’d be all over The Supremes… if I didn’t already have that song for Lips!

That sound you just heard was every single Pokemon fan in the world screaming in unison. Today Nintendo has announced the November 2014 release of Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Pokemon Omega Ruby, 3DS reimaginings of the original 2003 GBA games.

While no footage or screenshots have been shown of, it can be safely assumed that the games will feature the same graphical upgrade as last year’s Pokemon X and Pokemon Y.
