I know lots of you are deep into catching Pokémon and earning Gym Badges right now, but Atlus is trying to grab your attention back to dungeon crawling by putting all the DLC for the 3DS RPG Shin Megami Tensei IV on sale for 25% off! You can get the full game for $39.99, and then various DLC that adds new dungeons, new demons to recruit and new equipment for anywhere from $1.11 to $2.24 from the Nintendo eShop. Just keep in mind that this sale is only going to run until November 11, so maybe pick up the DLC now and then play it after you’ve become a Pokémon Master?

Also, you can download the controversy magnet Dragon’s Crown for PS3 for $39.99, and for the Vita for $29.99. And the Storyteller Voice Pack DLC is on sale for just $1.49. (The Dragon’s Crown theme for the PS3 is also $1.49) And those sale prices will be in effect until November 12.

What do you get when you cross Nintendo and Star Wars?

Pure, unadulturated awesomeness, is what!

This unbelievable short from animator James Farr will blow you away with its clever gags, brilliant mash-ups and fantastic animation. Do a barrel roll, Link, and use the Triforce!

When comes to groups that the most vile of gamers dislike, gay men are miles above common fodder like women and “the blacks.” The industry has spent so long catering strictly to the angry white kid demographic that its visual mythology and cultural perspective is stubbornly entrenched in that singular perspective. Enter My Ex-Boyfriend the Space Tyrant: its release a supposed threat to Xbox Live trolls and Anita Sarkessian-haters the world over. But beyond its usefulness as a conversation starter, or appeal as troll trap, it’s difficult to recommend Up Multimedia’s effort as effective industry parody, or even a worthwhile gaming experience.

This week it’s all about the new Wii Fit U, which is a free download from the eShop. It’s like a month-long free trial period at the gym. And if you like it, it’s way cheaper than a gym membership! Unless you know of a gym that only charges $20 for a lifetime membership!

Also, I have to bitch about the crippling of the Swapnote app on the 3DS. Stupid kids…

Dear Diary,

Well, there was a bit of a shock this week, but the big news is that it was Halloween! Jack was in town, and it was quite an adventure! Even more work than it was in the last town I was in. Also, I finally made some money in the stalk market, buying some turnips for 98 bells and selling them for 257! I was thinking I should hold off one more day to see if they went up any more, but when I checked the next day, they were 68, so I made the right call selling them when I did!

Make the jump for the whole epic tale!

So, I know I promised a look at Fate Core for this edition of Tabletopping, but it’s Halloween! You need something scary. So instead we’re going to take a look at a game called Don’t Rest Your Head. DRYH is a game about madness and finding yourself. It’s also about personal horrors and the things you least want to happen to you coming to be. Additionally, it’s about having the power to summon a knife that can cut anything, including emotional ties and promises.

Masahiro Sakurai is nothing if not mysterious (or, in the eyes of some….a troll. But a friendly playful troll). Since debuting the newest entries in his Super Smash Bros. series at E3 back in June, the series’ lead developer has been posting screenshots of the game on MiiVerse every single day to help build anticipation.

These screenshots have included everything from characters in bizarre poses, to level reveals, to character reveals. In fact since the game’s initial announcement back in June five veteran fighters have been announced to return: Princess Peach, Captain Olimar and Pikmin, Luigi, and Toon Link. With the exception of Peach all of the character announcements have been tied to a major release related to their respective franchises. This led many to expect a Pokemon-related announcement following the release of  Pokemon X and Pokemon Y. This is all we got.

Cue the “SAKURAAAIIIIII” posts.
