Reliable Source: Tokyo Game Show and Nintendo's New Handheld

Mr. Marion Cox is taking over Reliable Source to bring you the latest gossip and rumors from the games industry.

The sad thing is, it really wouldn't surprise me if there was a Guitar Hero Game & Watch.

What with their "threats" of releasing Plug and Play Hero games.

It is speculated that the reason the Game and Watch handhelds are experiencing a resurgence is due to Nintendo's statements that they wished to "broaden the moveset for Game & Watch" in their best seller Super Smash Bros. The character is speculated to have, in the next game, attacks such as pretending to be a monk and initiating "Star Power". Nintendo Officials described it as "teh pwnzor", stating that the previous incarnations of the character were something called "fail". It is still being determined whether those Nintendo Officials were total douchebags. Sources suggest yes.

Where are you Wilson?
EDIT: My comments regarding Wilson are not to say that this issue was in any way bad.

Sorry Marion, it just isn't the same.

Hey, I give Marion some credit here. The level of sarcasm wasn't the same as previous RS articles, but I will let that slide under the assumption that this got tossed on her at the last minute.

I did like the handheld bit. I still have a couple of those suckers from the 80's!

These stories seem believeable. I'm suspicious.

Too true. Only Japan could fill the creepy-porn games market.

Gruchul:

This. These stories were definitely more "scarily could be true" than "hilariously, wet yourself funny", but damn, still good :)

I'm of the mind that this issue was more readable than past ones. The first one I read had so much sarcasm I could taste it. It felt like it was going further than The Onion normally does. I rather enjoyed this issue with things toned down a bit. It could, however, use a little bit more length to some of the articles.

For a last minute job, though. Nice :)

Yeah, I may have been a little unfair there. I just really enjoyed Wilson's razor sarcasm.

Wasn't the last story true? I...I don't know if this was done correctly.

Dude, a nice first try but really the comedy was either too subtle or non-existent. the last article wasn't even funny.

Where are you Wilson?

Could use a bit more sarcasm to sort out the fact from the fiction. Was the last story true? I don't really know.

Dont' make jokes about Modern warfare 2! My heart can't take it! If Dragonage is delayed I'll have to kill myself. AGAIN.

nonroker:
If Dragonage is delayed I'll have to kill myself. AGAIN.

Or just many other people.

I am so gonna be pissed if Dragon Age is delayed, god i hate COD. First i have tons of people go on and on about it in my year, now this?
I just don't see the appeal of FPS', you beat the campaign and then you just multiplayer where's the replay value?

From the sound of the beginning of the article, im not going to say exactly but it sounds like Wilson "meeps with the phishes"

RIP Wilson.

We'll miss the sarcasm so thick you could chop it up and eat it for dinner, but a nice start for Marion to be sure. Loved the handheld article, the jab at pykroloft, and the baby-napping of Dead Rising by the evil western devlopers.
