Nintendo is Dropping a Ton of New DLC This April

April's Nintendo Direct brought us news of a ton of new DLC for several games. Unfortunately there was no news about Zelda Wii U, but hopefully E3 2015 will give us more information. But it's all good, because Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros. Wii U are getting some serious add-ons!

Best Of: Hey Man You See That Guy Over There?

Another day, another super exploitable meme format. 

"Hey Man You See That Guy Over There" started in April as a webcomic by Facebook user Florkofcrows. The comic, which features two sock men is supposed to represent the feeling of outrage when a person likes someone you don't. This outrage is basically the premise of many internet exchanges, so naturally the macro has been edited to reference various video games, comics and fandoms. Here are some of our favorite examples.

Funny webcomics of Hey Man You See That Guy OVer There memes, a lot of them have to do with anime, gaming, video games, skyrim, nintendo, xbox,.

Shares of the company fell 7 points after the Switch was unveiled. President Kimishima was baffeled at the response and told Bloomberg. "I had wondered about the reaction. But I don't understand why."

 

We suspect it has something to do with the Switch's resembalance to the Wii-U and Nintendo's continued insistance on releasing gimmicky consoles.

Poor 'ol Boone Sheridan who lives in Massachusetts, downloaded Pokémon GO last Friday, only to end up realizing that his house was marked as one of his area's gyms. Thing is, it makes sense because Sheridan said his place used to be a church in the 1800's (thus explaining why it'd be marked as a gym).

Churches are f**king hotbeds in Pokémon GO right now. Sheridan's coverage via Twitter, of his place being frequented by Pokémon trainers who were just trying to train 'n catch 'em all, is pretty damn hilarious. 



I mean hey, at least Sheridan got to meet the current Gym leader right?

After nine years of work by Pokémon Uranium's developers, and a reported 1.5 million downloads, the inspired fan-made game has officially been shut down by Nintendo---specifically, all the download links were removed before Nintendo could pursue them with any legal action.



Some truly saddening news, as Pokémon Uranium was definitely a game worth getting real excited about! Featured over 150 new Pokémon, a new type of 'nuclear' Pokémon, and dozens of hours of new content with a well-developed storyline. See the original trailer here:



This isn't the first time we've seen Nintendo bring down the ban hammer on a fan re-make: Nintendo gave the same treatment to "AM2R," a remake of the GameBoy classic Metroid II.
