Special Wrap-Up - Kevin Butler | oprainfall

Last week, the Operation Rainfall Retro Commercial Research Team (in other words, me) took a look at Japan’s greatest gaming salesman, Segata Sanshiro. Now for this week’s Special Wrap-Up, we’ll be taking a look at the greatest gaming salesman in the West, Kevin Butler. While he wasn’t the amazing Japanese incarnation of Chuck Norris that Segata Sanshiro was, he had his own brand of hilarious awesomeness that has yet to be matched.

Here are the highlights of this past week.

Nintendo brought Miiverse and the Nintendo Network ID system to the 3DS in their latest firmware update.

Tyler Lubbin reviews Contrast for the PlayStation 4 and the PC and Justin Guillou reviews Super Mario 3D World for the Wii U.

Namco Bandai announces Tales of Zestiria, the next major game in the Tales franchise. What’s more, they’ve announced that it’ll be coming to the West on the same day.

Josh Speer talks about Haruka from Senran Kagura Burst in this week’s Building Character.

Josh also recaps the past week of Smash Bros. screenshots in this week’s Smashing Saturdays, as well as talks about his experience playing as Ness in this week’s Character of the Week.

The release date for Kaio: King of Pirates is unfortunately going to be pushed back to 2014.

SEGA released a patch update for Sonic Lost World to help make the game a little easier.

Gog.com announces a new Money Back Guarantee program that allows you to return a game after 30 days if you can’t get it to work.

Finally, we shared our most anticipated games for 2014. You can check out a compilation of our individual lists here.
