Well, obviously there’s only one topic for me to talk about this week, and it’s the Tomodachi Life controversy with Nintendo stirring up the angry hornets nest that is the gaymer community. I have my own opinions on the various issues, and you’ll find it after the jump!

Happy Friday everybody! You’re probably wondering who on earth I am. Allow me to introduce myself. I’m D.J. Kirkland and I’m a new content contributor to GayGamer.net. I’m honored to be apart of this team and happy that Sal is allowing me to indulge my biggest obsession, Super Smash Bros. I’ll be reporting to you guys every week with a recap of all of Masahiro Sakurai’s Miiverse posts with my thoughts on each one. Perhaps even some video content down the line! But we all know what you’re here for, Smash Bros! We’ve got another week of screenshots to discuss and overall, there were some good information in these that I’m ready to analyze.

Let’s get into it!

You guys, OMG, you guys, have you heard about Folsom Street Foundry? It’s this large warehouse-like event space at Folsom and 10th St. in San Francisco, and they’ve started this weekly event called SHOWDOWN: Tuesday Game Night and it is awesome! I first heard about it when it popped up randomly in my Facebook feed and figured I’d give it a go. It was right around the corner from work and started more or less as soon as I got off at 6, so I figured what the heck. As luck would have it, our very own Sal just so happened to have the same idea and I just so happened to run into him. We observed the goings-on around us and determined that, lo, it was good. Lemme tell you about it…

Dear Diary,

Well, the rainy season seems to be upon us. Even if in this neighborhood, it’s May showers instead of April ones… I don’t care, as long as I can take a break from watering my flowers! (Of course, I keep forgetting to check back the day after it rains to see if the Reset Center is open to poke around in…)

We had some fun this week, and I kept a couple people from leaving town. One, on her birthday, if you can believe it! Read on!

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!
