Last week Nintendo broke silence with the first Nintendo Direct video since E3, and what a doozy it was. We learned about Twilight Princess HD, a surprising Final Fantasy VII inclusion in Smash Bros., and amiibo. So many amiibo. In this episode we let our thoughts be known on these announcements.

Halo 5 is the latest entry in the venerable Halo series, and it has some ambitions. Master Chief. Locke. Who's going to win? What became of Cortana? How many aliens died in the making of this game? In the playing of this game? We explore these questions, and more, in the latest episode of Turtle Jump.

Halo is a venerable sci-fi shooter, and The Master Chief Collection includes the first four campaigns and a smorgasbord of multiplayer options (when the servers are actually working). In preparation for and in celebration of Halo 5's release, the Turtle Jumpers play through the campaigns and offer their insights into the series.

Nintendo has been strangely quiet since E3, and their game release schedule, barring the new Zelda, only exists as far as spring next year. They've been silent on the NX. They've been silent on mobile. Yet, lately, some rumors have sprung up. What could they mean? What is the truth? We explore the possibilities and weigh in with our own speculation in this episode.

Pre-Order (pree-or-der)
v. (tr.)
1. To reserve an item before its release date in order to guarantee access it before it sells out. 
2. Gaming Media To blindly dance to the tune of the corrupt AAA game publishers and greedy retailers by paying for a product before we tell you whether its worth your time. Wake up, sheeple!

In this episode, we talk about Super Mario Maker, the new Nintendo game that leverages to the Wii U Game Pad to allow players to create their own Mario levels. Players can then share their levels online and play the levels uploaded by others. Is this genius, or mad? Or both? We explore that question.
