    Listen to or buy it here.
    Or check it out on iTunes or Spotify where it'll land in the coming days!

    Talos' anti-air grab hitbox is Satsuki level ridiculousness by the way

  5. Carbo added a post in a topic This is what Sonic looks like in Unreal 4   

    This looks very not good. Bad choice of model, no acceleration, stops too much on a dime for me to appreciate the scale and poor camera.
    The whole point of the Mario Unreal video was how feasible it was to replicate the feeling of Mario 64 in UE4. This is just slapping a Sonic model on it and turning up some knobs.

    Reggie comments on Iwata's passing.
    I wonder whether he knew how much time he had left.

    NoA's press site updated with what seems to be the most recent picture of Iwata taken (from June 23).
    He'd lost a lot of weight.

    I think it's safe to say that if Mario Maker ends up being dedicated in Iwata's memory, I will cry.

  11. Carbo added a post in a topic RED ASH- Mega Man Legends Spiritual Successor?   

    Yoshinori Kawano, the actual mastermind behind the Legends franchise, is not involved in this. That's already a glaring omission as far as I'm concerned.
    But frankly it doesn't matter how many names they had that worked on Legends when they've shown nothing to convince people. A name is just a name. Inafune isn't treating this project and the names behind it with the respect it deserves. Right now its just empty promises hidden behind shady stretch goals.

    Of course they're not getting criticism for it. The mere fact that the games exist is something people are going to get excited about no matter what. It wasn't until a year or two after Final Fantasy XIII Versus was revealed that people started to get pissed off about that too.

    Not that I haven't been personally vocal at the whole insisting nature of turning E3 into a race of generating hype rather than making it an honest upfront hands-on showcase of games that we can play and will soon play. Sony's conference was great no doubt but knowing that I'm going to have to wait years to play most of these is a frustrating piece of knowledge that I'm not excited about - especially considering some of the developers bringing these games have a notorious history of not providing these games on time. It's far more exciting to get hyped about something when we find out it's been in development for a long time and will soon be ready to play rather than announcing it and then not knowing where the fuck you'll go with it. Square Enix are the biggest offenders of this and while I enjoyed their conference, much of it was still "promises, promises, promises". You could say the same goes for Zelda as well since that series has a history of getting last minute delays. I don't hold the Shenmue 3 announcement that accountable because it's getting Kickstarter treatment.

    Incidentally I recall one of the main lines of criticism last year against Nintendo's showing used to be "everything is 2015". And we're in 2015 right now which arguably has a more diverse and better line-up than the Wii U had last year, so nothing has happened to deter that. 2015 is still a generally good year for Wii U software if you subscribed two years ago to the generally accepted notion that you'll only get games for it every once in a while that will have proven to be of timeless quality. Wii U is beyond the point that it'll have a decently padded out release schedule, so let's all act surprised when in 2015, 3 years after release and obvious signs that the Wii U is going to be killed off early, nothing has changed on part of the developers who are making games for the thing.

    The sad fact is I'd rather be disappointed by an honest showing in an immediate future than being sold on some vague promise that I can't guarantee will be what I want or expect it to be. Nintendo had a mediocre showing? That's fine, I can live with that. If they're leveraging this thing on their own, not every year will be good for them and by 2016 it's clear that they're setting their sights on new consoles instead, so it's better they run with what they have right now.

    Incidentally the puppets were actually provided by the Jim Henson Company and the segments in the Digital Event was directed by Brian Henson.

    Presentation values was on point for the show.
  14. Carbo added a post in a topic Problems with registering.   

    Alright, so update on this - the e-mail system is currently broken and needs a reboot. We can't do that at this very moment. However, I'm taking it upon me to manually verify users who have registered between today and the first reported day of incident.

    This might take a while since I'm currently pre-occupied with personal shit but I'll start to working on it this evening and hopefully have it done within a day or two.
