The New Year is almost upon us, so the Operation Rainfall Retro Commercial Research Team (in other words, me) will be doing something a little different this week. Normally, this segment is dedicated to commercials from the distant-ish past that are fairly cheesy and/or enjoyable. You know, the commercials that didn’t take themselves so seriously all the time. However, since it’s almost 2014, I figured I’d comb through the various gaming commercials from this past year and showcase some that still embody that spirit from long ago. Without further adieu, here are some of my favorite commercials from this past year in this week’s Special Wrap-Up.
Here are the highlights from this past week.
Brad Williams reviews Goodbye Deponia for the PC and Crystal Baltimore reviews Leviathan Episode 2: Clues of the Past for PC and iOS.
We take a look at Wadjet Eye Games in this week’s Publisher Spotlight.
Hailee Kenney talks about Miles Edgeworth from the Ace Attorney series in this week’s installment of Building Character.
A North American trademark has been discovered for Inazuma Eleven. Could this mean that the series will finally come to North America?
Comcept has revealed the crowd-voted design for Call, Beck’s partner in Mighty No. 9.
Josh Speer recaps the past week of Smash Bros. screenshots in this week’s Smashing Saturdays, while Raymond Dwyer talks about his experience playing as Jigglypuff in this week’s Character of the Week.
Finally, an English version of Phantasy Star Online 2 is finally being released… in Southeast Asia.
