SUDA51 is the director of No More Heroes 3 and he has arguably has the most creative influence on the franchise. He was the director, writer, and designer for Travis Touchdown’s debut game, No More Heroes, in 2007. SUDA51’s career in gaming started in 1993, and he has a collection of wild and inspiring games under his belt. In addition to the No More Heroes series, he has helmed fan-favorite projects such as Killer7, Lollipop Chainsaw, and Let it Die.

In the Twitter, post SUDA51 talks about how they originally wanted a longer name for No More Heroes 3. The name SUDA51 wanted for the game was No More Heroes 3 FINAL BOUT – All-Out Galactic War! However, the team decided to “take a hint from the Rocky series” and significantly shorten the title. The original title was supposed to hint at the fate of Travis Touchdown and the No More Heroes series.

The “Final” part was most important. as SUDA51 has stated that No More Heroes 3 is the final chapter in the Travis Touchdown story. He ends the post by saying goodbye to Travis, to the No More Heroes series, to the days and time passed during the creation of the series, and to all the Travis Touchdowns everywhere.

All Baobab Tree locations in Tales of Kenzera
Zau fights a dragon in Tales of Kenzera: Zau.

While it wasn't marketed as being a particularly punishing game, Tales of Kenzera: Zau is by no means easy. You will have plenty of environmental challenges that can instantly sap your life, and the enemies you face -- especially the bosses -- are no slouches. When you first begin, it will only take a couple of bad hits to send Zau to the land of the dead himself. Alongside the Trinkets you can unlock through hidden challenges around the map, there are also Baobab Trees where Zau can stop to reflect on his journey thus far, have a short dialogue with Kalunga, and get a small addition to his health bar. Like everything in the game, these trees aren't prohibitively hidden, but you could easily pass one by and have no idea where it was when trying to backtrack. These are all the Baobab Tree locations so you can max out your health bar.
All Baobab Tree locations
There are six Baobab Trees to find in Tales of Kenzera: Zau and each adds a small segment of health to your total. When you collect them all, you will roughly double your HP bar. Here are each of their locations in the rough order you should naturally find them in. Most can be picked up on your first time through that area.

All Fallout games, ranked

Who would've thought the post-apocalypse could be such a fun time? The Fallout franchise has taken the idea of a Mad Max-like future and not only made it into a wildly popular game franchise but also a hit TV series. The core franchise has been around since the late '90s, and yet we've had only a handful of mainline entries in the series since it was revived by Bethesda with Fallout 3. With Starfield in the rearview mirror and the next Elder Scrolls title currently being the dev team's focus, it could be close to another decade before we can set foot in the wasteland ourselves once again. What better time, then, to look back at the franchise and rank all the games from best to worst?

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Rumble is as fun to watch as it is to play
Monkeys race one another in Super Monkey Ball: Banana Rumble.

I couldn’t tell you what the last Super Monkey Ball game I played was, but I can still talk your ear off about the series. That’s thanks to the speedrunning community that has formed around the franchise, making it into the most exciting game to watch when it's played at a high level. After spending close to a decade watching old games turned inside and out, I’m ready to finally dig into a new entry for myself.

Thankfully, I’m getting that chance on June 25 when Super Monkey Ball: Banana Rumble launches on Nintendo Switch. The latest entry in Sega’s precise platforming series comes loaded with content, from an adventure mode with 200 stages to multiple 16-player multiplayer modes. That’s all exciting, but my attention was on one question when I sat down to demo all of that last week: How fun will it be to watch players master it?
