Creepy Assist Trophy

Has anyone ever noticed how creepy the assist trophy looks in the new Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and for WiiU?

Assist trophies are an item in the Super Smash Bros. series starting from Brawl and also appearing on Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Super Smash Bros. for WiiU and would summon a random characters from vairous video games. I’m not saying there’s a creepy pasta going around about the assist trophy because as we all know, Smash Bros. is played out by a child’s imagination using toys and action figures of various Nintendo characters and then some but compared to the assist trophy item design in brawl, the one for SSB4 looks a tad scary.

Another long gap since the last Recent Buys but it is October and a bunch of games that I’m excited for are starting to come out.

To kick off October, it started with the release of Super Smash Bros. for the 3DS. I’ve been a nut for the Super Smash Bros. since I got to play the N64 release at a friend’s house when I was in the United States on vacation back in the day. That got me to decide on getting a Gamecube instead of a PS2 just for Super Smash Bros. Melee and then got a Wii in anticipation for Super Smash Bros. Brawl. I’m planning to eventually get a WiiU but for now, the 3DS version should hold me off until then. (more…)

A friend of mine was getting rid of some figures and statues from her collection and I decided to take some of the Persona 4 stuff she had for sale. All 3 items were things that I’ve been eyeing for a while, 2 of which I’ve been meaning to get for some time now. First off are two figures from Max Factory’s FIGMA line, Chie Satonaka based off her appearance in the Persona 4 anime and Labrys from her appearance in Persona 4 Arena. The third is a statue of Chie Satonaka by Taito depicting her character select art from Persona 4 Arena. (more…)
