Find Mii 1 & 2I'm sure most of you have heard of the Nintendo 3DS software Find Mii, as It comes with all 3ds's. It's an ok game. It is fun, but the fact that it requires play coins makes it kinda boring at times. It also relies a bit too much on streetpass that might make it fun in Japan where you could meet like 20 people on a subway ride, but anywhere else it is almost useless. Other than that it can be very fun. You can go around an fight different types of enemies from ghosts to warriors to golems in a sort of comic attempt to free your mii.
Featured ArticlesAs I'm sure most of you have noticed there haven't been many changes to the featured article recently. The main reason for that is that only one person has nominated an article. So let's try to get some more nominations. You can nominate an article here.
Project TardisYou may or may not have heard of the "Project Tardis", a project started by Rocketslime_1_1 to help improve the Nintendo Wiki. It's purpose is to take past, current, and new features and improve them. Nintendo Monthly is actually part of "Project Tardis". It is named after the time machine from the TV show Doctor Who.
E3 2012As I'm sure you know the E3 this year happened only a little while ago and this years E3 was a little disappointing, but we still got some new information on some exciting new games such as Paper Mario: Sticker Star. So what was your favorite game from the E3? You can discuss it here, because it was started to improve old, current and new features.
Editing TipsThis section of Nintendo Monthly will provide you with some good tips to improve your editing skills. This issue's Editing tips are some useful places where you can find some interesting editing features.
Bowser on the Big ScreenFor the first time in nearly two decades, Bowser will appear on the big screen. The Mario villain makes an appearance in the upcoming Disney animated feature Wreck-It Ralph. The main character of the film, Ralph, is a video game bad guy who wants to be a hero instead. Along his journey, he meets many other villains which include not only Bowser but also Dr. Eggman from the Sonic games, Bison and Zangief from Street Fighter, and a ghost from Pac-Man. Be sure to catch these Nintendo characters when the movie is released this November.
Mega Man turns 25For those of you who may have been around when the original Mega Man games were released in the late 1980's, it might be hard to believe that Mega Man is celebrating his 25th birthday this year. That's right. It's been 25 years since the first game was published by Capcom in 1987. With many successful games, comics, a few animated series, and some of the best up-beat video game music you're ever going to hear, let's hope for another successful 25 years for the Blue Bomber.
Lego Characters Can TalkThe recently released Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes marks the first time in the "Lego" series that the characters speak. In the previous games, they only grumbled, giggled or grunted. But now, the Lego characters have been given dialogue. Veteran voice actors Clancy Brown, Cam Clarke and Rob Paulsen are among the cast.
Pokémon ConquestWith Pokémon Conquest being the newest spin-off of the Pokémon series I'm sure most of you who haven't bought it already are wondering "What is it like?" or "How good is it?". The game is quite unlike all other pokémon games, it combines the rpg strategy battling of the Fire Emblem series and the gameplay of the Civilization series. The game is split up into many episodes and in the beginning of the game you are thrown into an episode where you play as the Hero and you slowly learn how to play and take over each area at about two at a time until you beat Nobunaga. After you beat the first episode you unlock other episodes and can keep playing through more and more episodes where you play as other warlords, but sadly you can't replay the first episode. The actual gameplay is quite nice, each turn (month) you can send warriors to an area in your castle, you can train them, you can mine for gold, you can feed their pokémon, you can buy items from a shop, or you can attack another castle. When training your pokémon you sometimes battle other warriors and if you beat them in 3 turns or defeat their pokémon with a super effective attack then they will join your army. In training you can also link with wild pokémon so your warrior can use it in battle, the same rule applies with most warriors that you beat when attacking castles too. In each castle you can have 6 warriors and at any point you can move your warriors between your castles. The first episode of the game is easy, but most of the other episodes are surprisingly difficult. That combined with the fact that you can't replay the first episode bring down a game that would be a 5/5 to a 3.5/5.
Staff Corner: Console or HandheldThis month's Staff Corner theme is "Which is better consoles or handhelds?".
What is your favorite type of video game?
I'm sure you all can't wait for next month's issue of Nintendo Monthly, and I can guarantee that it will be even better that this month's.
So this month send in any questions you have for the staff and they will answer them here on Nintendo Monthly. Just put a message on that staff member's talk page titled "Nintendo Monthly: Staff Question" asking them the question.
