Super Smash Brothers for the Nintendo 3DS Preview

By Nick Hughes, Contributing Writer

On October third this year Super Smash Brothers will be released for the Nintendo 3DS. As a result of a promotion by Nintendo via their Club Nintendo I was able to get a download code for the games demo. With a confirmed roster of 48 characters to choose from the demo only allowed selection of five characters. Those being Mario from the Super Mario Brothers series, Link from The Legend of Zelda, and Pikachu from the Pokémon Series. These three are returning characters. The two new characters to the roster include Megaman from the Megaman series and The Villager from Animal Crossing. Although there were only five characters out of the 48 I have at least five hours invested in the demo. I was very impressed with the game as a whole. The combat was very fluid and extremely fun. All five characters move sets were well done; especially the two newcomers to the series. Megaman and the Villager. It took a lot of time to understand the Villagers move set, but after a little bit of playing it becomes clear that the villager is quite the character. As a side note, the Villagers lifeless eyes left me feeling a bit unsettled.

We live in a technology-driven world. The twenty-first century has seen people watching all day press conferences for new computers, school children receiving tablets for Christmas as opposed to toys, even shoppers pulling out their camping gear to go wait in line for the newest phone to be released. However, in this new, high-tech society, there is one antiquated piece of technology that seems to be on the upswing – the vinyl record.

Vicki Van Hise wants to help student succeed

by Robert Beiler, Managing Editor

Vicki Van Hise has seen a broad range of America personal and professional life. The New Jersey native is the Disability Coordinator at Harrisburg Area Community College (HACC), which oversees students with learning disabilities to help them succeed in their time with the college. She has been in the position since 2010 when she started working with HACC.

Hailing from a small farm-centric town near the New Jersey/New York border, Van Hise speaks of a town much smaller than Lancaster. One where “everybody knew each other” or in some cases was even a relative. While previous generations of her family had been farmers, her parents chose a different path for their professional careers. A desire for a change of scenery however prompted Van Hise to attend college at Seattle Pacific University in Seattle, Washington. She then remained there for eleven more years after graduating with a bachelor’s degree in Family Studies and working as a professional in “corporate land” as she calls it.

‘Unhung Hero’ asks the tough questions

Patrick Moote, star of the film.

by Jared Sullivan – Contributing Writer

Imagine that you are a college student at a University with a major stadium for football games. You have personally arranged to be put on the kiss camera so that you could propose to your girlfriend and because it is such a profound football school is humiliated at least in front of 30,000 people. Then, to make things worse, your rejection is put on YouTube by someone recording it. Within four days it hits ten million views. That would be pretty harsh. What if the number one answer as to why you were rejected is because you have too small of a penis?

Chicks dig Live Wire’s new Managing Editor

Robert Beiler, Managing Editor

By Robert Beiler, Managing Editor

Tell me to write an article about political positions and I could have it done no problem. Tell me to write about myself and suddenly I’m at a loss. Where do I begin? Do people care that I am a Lancaster native? Is it important for them to know I’ve been to a Star Trek convention? Does my time at Harrisburg Area Community College matter to the reader? Perhaps not, we shall see.

I am however the new managing editor for Live Wire so we can start there. I’ve been with Live Wire for over a year, coming up on two. As the semesters change we see people come and go as they do with community colleges. Each one brings something new to the table, leaves a mark in some way. It’s been fun so far.
