Is That Some Lance’s Island I See In Super Smash Bros. 4?

PilotWings Lance's Island

It is Lance’s Island in Super Smash Bros. 4! Today’s SSB4 update reveals Lance’s Island from Pilotwings. It’s unknown if this will be a full stage or just a backdrop to a larger, possibly Pilotwings-related stage.

Lance’s Island was the 3rd training course of the original Pilotwings on the SNES. The Hang Glider was introduced in this course, along with roundabout flying with the Light Plane. If there’s one thing I remember most about this course, it’s the chill-ass Hang Glider theme.

Now that you know where this stage comes from, don’t be like this guy and think it’s from Minecraft.

Night-Time Listenings Wrap-Up: Week of 7/23/12

This week in Night-Time Listening, we chilled. We really chilled. So chilled you’d freeze. We started out with music from Viewpoint. Then we hit up the smooth sounds of OutRun 2006. We flew on our Rocketbelt with Pilotwings. We were at the ocaenside with Chrono Cross. And we camped in an icy mountain in Xenoblade.

If you want to see the music as it goes up (and not wait every Saturday for these wrap-ups), remember to go to our Tumblr page and follow it. Music for Night-Time Listenings goes up every weekday at 10PM

Top 10 N64 Games I Wished I Played In My Youth (And Still Haven’t!)

I’m not sure how many gamers there are like me, but I’ll come out and say it: I never owned an N64. Never had one, and not really planning to go out and own one. I grew up as a Playstation kid as the PS1 was the cheaper system when my mom went out and got me one. I think many gamers probably had the same predicament as me: we grew up poor or had parents that didn’t want to spend a lot of money on games (and instead give us lame Christmas socks and notebooks). But I don’t fault my family. I grew up on a console that was getting the RPGs and all the third party games. But still, there were quite a few things on the N64 that revolutionized the way we played videogames (like the joystick and Rumble Pak). I was able to play the N64 in my cousins’ house. But personally, as you already know, I never owned an N64. The only way I can “legally” play the games are on the Wii. But in hindsight, it’s still kinda sad knowing that I missed out on the happenings surrounding the system –in particular, the games. Before we begin, I have to set a criteria.

1) These are games that I have not touched, at all. To this day. As I type this. Never played, at all. Dead. Serious.
2) The “not owning” part is a given. But, if I did play them at all, they don’t count. And also, for other games games I mention “playing”, they don’t necessarily mean “owning.”
3) If I own the original games or enhanced port on the Virtual Console or any other system, they don’t count.
 

So without further ado, hit the jump button down there to see what games I missed out on.
