  1. So it turns out that the BOTW adventure diary is written from Link's first-person PoV in the Japanese version, giving a lot of insight into his character, which makes me livid that NoA made the diary so impersonal: http://leadhoovesies.tumblr.com/post/166414140074/major-discovery-botws-adventure-log-links

      wow I don't why they did that

      There was a thread on Neogaf thread about this and many said this isn't exactly true. The POV is vaguer in the Japanese and could be first or third person or something like that.

      I don't get Nintendo's obsession with keeping link this blank slate even in story driven contexts like Botw where he clearly is his own person, and not just a simple avatar for the player

      exactly theres no need  for it in botw

  2. A duck walked up to a lemonade stand, and said to the man running the stand:


  3. So I had this idea for a Hitman spinoff - "Hitman: Kunoichi", starring a female asian assassin from a modern ninja organization who use realistic ninja methods of assassination and espionage, including the use of disguises, as well as unique tools and techniques not available to Agent 47. I'd play it.

      Your idea just reminds me how much I'd like a new Tenchu game.

  4. Well, two packages came in today. I finally got my hands on the SNES Classic Mini, and I just played Cuphead with a Saturn controller. The latter feels astonishingly good despite being used.

  5. Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    So the Tournament of Power arc is starting in the manga, with the exhibition match... Except it's not a three-on-three match involving mortals, but a free-for-all involving all the gods of destruction. The whole match starts with pretty much everyone going after Beerus (because none of them like him and them finding out that Goku caused this whole mess gave them an excuse), but he still holds his own pretty damn well regardless.
  6. Marvel VS Capcom Infinite XB1/PS4/PC

    Honestly, no matter how good the gameplay is, I can't get over the garbage-tier presentation. MvC3 cel-shading would've made the visuals far more bearable, but it also suffers from the same problem PS All-Stars did - lack of consistency in the character art, many characters look out of place with each other, especially X and Zero just looking out of place in the entire setup despite working just fine in the last game. Seriously, this is one of the worst-presented fighting games in a long time, which makes the comparison to the labor of love that is Dragon Ball FighterZ look all the more stark - Capcom should've noticed that that game was sapping MvC:I's pre-release hype due to its incredible presentation and MvC:I being compared unfavourably. And I've seen the game's art direction as one of the game's major flaws in reviews, that should tell them something as well. MvC:I needs a visual overhaul even more drastic than the one KOFXIV got, and replace a lot of the music. It wouldn't even need to change models, just change the friggn' shaders.
  7. Well, I finally managed to make a decent-quality recording of my project in action: 


  8. Smashed through the base story missions of Destiny 1 in preparation for Destiny 2's PC release... And immediately went back to Warframe, and remembered why I love playing it. Even disregarding the inferior framerate, Destiny feels so slow and plodding.

  9. MvC:I looks like a mess and not even the music is good. The only way I can rationalise how badly they fucked this up is "Ike Perlmutter got involved".

    1. Yeow


      I wouldn't be surprised if Capcom played a hand in screwing up the game too, considering how SFV('s launch) turned out.

      e: I also completely forgot / missed the fact that this game is coming out this week. :v

    2. Dejimon11


      The game comes out on Tuesday 

    3. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      They heavily screwed this up so much that I forgot it released this week. Capcom, you lost me with your dumb roster (Wesker was awesome dammit!)

  10. The General 'Murican Politics Thread

    I'm not sure what NK is trying to do here. Their enemies are not gonna shoot first, that'll just get China involved, whereas China will stay out of it if NK shoots first. Though, I also wouldn't be surprised if China decides to just quickly move in and annex North Korea to prevent a flood of refugees across the border and to stop this nonsense once and for all. While they need a buffer between them and US-allied Korea, NK is increasingly becoming more of a headache, and China's current president is much less fond of them than his predecessor.

    Arin Hanson, everybody!

      Man I haven't watched the GG's in a while but its good to know that arin still gets rekt for his negligence (though to be fair, it is hard to do commentary, talk with a friend, and play a game at the same time for some people).

      Jaltoid Media is the new GG

      Cant wait till people blindly hate this game because of Arin's negligence

    4. Conando


      Easy Mode ain't gonna help that either, extra HP doesn't help shit if you don't try to do it right.

      How is Game Grumps these days?

      Which is why people should do a test playthrough before they record themselves for a commentary. Johnny understands this when he records for SGB and BSC, and despite the occasional screw up (and the thankful edits when things do get sour) he always provides a good time. I wish other game commentary channels would have his work ethic, but nope. Gotta get those views while the game is fresh off the market.

      @Maxtiis: Ew no. That just leads to Arin knowing anything and everything about the game, and constantly being annoyingly teasing towards Dan because he knows all about it. I much prefer when they both go into the games blind, despite Arin floundering so much and irking people for having a fanbase. :V It's kinda their best dynamic that they work with.

    8. Maxtiis


      @The Deleter I guess it that's his appeal then sure. It's not like my saying so would change how he operates, and with how many viewers he has there's really no need to change from his perspective.

    9. The Deleter

      If he wasn't such a tease about it I wouldn't mind it. Dan's reactions to first-time stuff is the best part of it all. But since he's done this near every single time... I don't trust him for a single second not to spoil stuff ahead of time.

      His pain and suffering is what drives half the fanbase, as well, so... lol

  12. So... It was your average Nintendo Direct, really. A bunch of 3DS stuff, a bunch of Switch stuff, both of varying quality, a couple of unexpected curveballs (DOOM and Wolfenstein New Colossus, holy shit), and Mario Odyssey is looking more incredible than ever.

  13. Okay, so the helpful folks on the Sonic Retro Discord told me that I bought an actual Saturn pad, of all things, and that an SLS pad goes for a lot more. Well, I bought a blue/grey pad and a USB adaptor as well, since I can't go back on it at this point, not really much difference anyway, and might as well go whole hog and make full use of the two-port adaptor XD

  14. The Nintendo Switch Thread

    I don't really care for system-wide achievements and I honestly think they've been a blight on the medium in some ways, but I do want to see how Nintendo puts their own spin on things. If it's taken this long to implement them, I don't think Nintendo wants system-wide achievements/trophies as you'd see them on Sony or MS' platforms. Nintendo has been doing in-game achievements in certain games (Wii Sports Resorts, Kid Icarus: Uprising, Smash 4, Metroid Prime 3, etc), which have notably been about actually rewarding you with stuff.
