  1. Oh hell yes, River City Girls is a thing, it's being made by Wayforward, and it looks dope as hell:


  2. Holy shit, the Hong Kong protestors just hung the old British colonial flag in the legislative chamber. On the very anniversary of the handover. The balls on these people - it's the biggest possible "fuck you" to China they could've done.

  3. So I just found out that Chivalry II was announced as an EGS exclusive... But Mordhau already exists on Steam and has that market on lockdown with better mechanics than Chivalry, so...

  4. That was... Surprisingly good. They completely fucking wasted a Smash DLC slot with the DQ rep, though.

    1. KHCast


      It was to market the franchise to the west, and give japan a character they like for once. Nintendo with smash typically prioritize western popular characters 

  5. Star Wars: Fallen Order looks incredibly disappointing. All they had to do was make a spiritual sequel to Jedi Academy, for pete's sake, and yet this doesn't even remotely reach that bar.

    1. Perkilator


      More like Fallen Stock amirite

  6. It seems MS' upcoming press conference is leakier than a sinking boat.

    1. PublicEnemy1


      What else leaked?

    2. 8ther


      What was leaked?

  7. I had to look up what the TSR teams were and I was reminded that Team Vector is such a baffling assemblage (Vector, Silver and Blaze? Really?) that I still can't comprehend why they put those three characters together. Vector already has the Chaotix, and I really don't get Sega's insistence on pairing Blaze and Silver whenever the opportunity arises (the only time those two have ever had any kind of chemistry is in that one story in the IDW Annual, even if I disregard the fact that the pairing reminds me of the garbage fire that was Sonic 06 and how it derailed Blaze's backstory for a while).

    1. mayday2592


      Atleast it gives us a reason to see certain characters interact when they normally wouldn't.

    2. Ellipsis-Ultima


      Some of the team choices were questionable really.

  8. Crazy idea: Sonic and The Black Knight except everyone all the story characters are their Fate counterparts, Merlina inherits Fou from her grandfather, Modred is an ally (I think she and Sonic would actually get along), and the titular black knight is actually real but it's Alter Lancer!Arturia who then switches to Saber Alter mode for the second phase of the climactic battle, and both Sonic and Mordred have to team up to beat her. The credits sequence involves a DMC/Bayonetta-style interactive duel with Mordred.

  9. Wait, we're talking about Penders again? What'd he do this ti-

    Oh. Oh noooooooooooooo.

  10. So I just received my 8bitdo M30 controller from Playasia and it turns out I had ordered the 2.4g version (aka the wireless MG/Genesis version), when I actually wanted the Bluetooth version. I didn't even realize there was two versions. FML. At least they're happy with refunding it if I send it back.

  11. So nobody is talking about the fact that Nintendo let an indie dev make a Zelda game?

    1. KHCast


      We were talking about it a bunch this morning 

  12. Hilarious idea: Sonic Riders 4, guest starring Warframes using K-Drives, complete with a track based on Fortuna and a story involving Eggman and Nef Anyo competing for the villain role throughout. Will probably never happen but it would be all sorts of amazing.

      Hilarious Idea:                                           Sonic Riders 4

  13. I decided to just spoil myself on KHIII's story (because I likely won't be getting it for ages and I usually don't care about being spoiled anyway), and oh wow it's even more of a convoluted trash fire than I expected, to be honest.

      Being convoluted and having bad writing aren't mutually exclusive.

    3. Wraith


      Kingdom Hearts 3 shouldn't feel obligated to catch people up. 

    4. KHCast


      Metal gear is convoluted yet is able to have fun stories usually positively received. You can do convoluted right, but KH3 doesn’t even come off as that convoluted after previous titles stretched that trend thin. Just badly written, paced, and full of unexplained shit. 

      @Wraith I’d have preferred they didn’t, but they went the route of trying to integrate catching people up into the narrative, and it doesn’t work 

    5. Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

      Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

      @Wraith That's the least of that convoluted story's problems.

    6. Wraith


      I didnt get the impression that they were trying to catch people up at all. 

    7. Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

      Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

      Then why bring that up then?

    8. Wraith


      Khcast says "it’s just those things usually require prior understanding of the games, and it does a shit job at catching people up even when the plot awkwardly attempts to explain stuff " in the first comment of this status.

    9. KHCast


      Goofy and Donald attempting to explain the gist of re:coded, lea and isa’s Friendship just happening and isa explaining what he’s done, 3Ds events, Riku and Mickey explaining what happened to terra, something that should have been a no braineer, Axel randomly brining up that he and Ven met that one time, etc

    10. Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

      Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

      Oh, yeah that's really not an excuse for KH3.

    11. Wraith


      Those are more reminders to the people who have played these already because a lot of things have happened to these characters in 20 years. In general I don't think the story really tries to accommodate for newcomers at all.

    12. Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

      Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

      I don't think @KHCast is saying that it needed to, but more like one its flaws was trying to do it but poorly.

    13. Wraith


      And I'm saying that's not what they were trying to do. 

    14. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      So, speaking of story, can anyone explain that ending?

    15. KHCast


      @Wraith I mean they did have the memory archive, so it’s clear Square wanted the game to reach more than just kh fans, so it certainly felt with how awkwardly those moments just happened, shoehorned in to let newcomers know what happened. Whether it was or not the intention doesn’t change to me that these moments regardless felt forced in to reference a past game 

    16. Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

      @Jovahexeon Fitzroy The secret one. I was scratching my head hard at that, like was that an ad for something?

    18. Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

      Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

      It pretty much was.


      Verus Rex shown earlier in Toy Box is real.


    19. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      .... I forgot all about that TBH. God, I feel like Fry trying to understand Blurnsball with this.

    20. Ryannumber1gamer


      I would’ve been disappointed as hell if Lea didn’t address Ventus. Certainly wouldn’t consider it as a dropped point for catch up. It makes sense for Axel to ponder if the kid who was a keyblade welder and world traveller all of those years ago even remembered him. I thought it was pretty heartwarming now to establish he was remembered.

    21. KHCast


      I wish they would have broght it up at least once in the year+ time he and roxas were hanging out then, whether it be like in a secret report or in a conversation between him and saix. This being the first time he legit brings it up in the games just felt so unbelievable 

    22. Ryannumber1gamer



      The one point of contemption I have is I still find the video game world in Toy Box being real as absolutely idiotic, and an obviously bad attempt to shove KH with Nomura’s vision of Vs. XIII.

      Whats worse is I could maybe excuse the lack of FF stuff if you wanted to focus on the KH stuff. I think it’s a big loss, but I can see it. Disney is more engrained than FF at least and for the finale to this chapter, I could see them deciding they wanted to keep the Final Fantasy cast away for this one.

      When it looks dubious is when you rid it of the FF cast, and then throw in your expy cast in exchange because they’re totes better than the real thing.

    23. Wraith


      "I'm just gonna put dumb shit I like in Kingdom Hearts" is literally the premise of Kingdom Hearts

      Also Noctis and his friends got butchered by square so I can understand why Nomura's been put off by the idea of using them. We can see what his original intent was and I'm interested in that. 

    24. KHCast


      Nomura seemed really on and off regarding FF’s characters inclusion, I recall him going back and forth in interview on if they’d show up, so wouldn’t surprise me if in a dlc expansion, we see them show up in their own contained story for 3(or at least Cloud and sephiroth’s arc getting closure. With maybe Zack showing up.)

    25. Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

      Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

      Well in that case, the moral of the story is to wait for Final Mix rather then have hopes in the base game.

    26. Wraith


      Nomura only seems like he's contradicting himself in interviews because of how many things likely got left on the cutting room floor when it came down to releasing the game on time. It's very rare for a dev to come out and say we had to cut something for time for w/e reason. I'm guessing they aren't allowed to divulge that insight or are heavily encouraged not to by their bosses, but that's just me speculating. 

      Either way I suspect a lot of things that seem 'off' about Kingdom Hearts 3 just come down to the game releasing too early. It's frustrating but nothing new for...games, to be honest. I'm glad this is one of the few series that have a history of going back and adding the shit they couldn't fit in the first time though because we'll probably see a fully fleshed out version of 3 in a year or two.

  14. Ugh I want this keyboard so bad but it's expensive and mechanical keys are loud https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07771GCBS?th=1

  15. Good lord Jump Force looks even more like trash than I expected. Disgraceful.

    1. Jango


      Called it

  16. Just one page in to issue #13, and we get the image of Knuckles being suspicious of some birds near the Master Emerald. Never change, Knux.

      Nice to know Mania Adventures ran with that joke

  17. In a theoretical "Nintendoverse", which I imagine could take all sorts of shapes, I can imagine one constant - Kirby is everyone's friend. No exceptions.

    Like, I can imagine a potential Shadow The Hedgehog adaptation where Shadow just breaks down after a day of absolutely no solid answers, and almost takes it out on Kirby, who takes a chilli dog, and hands half of it to Shadow to try and cheer him up at least a little. It works, somehow.

    1. SupahBerry


      And then, just as Shadow had turned away from him...

      inb4 Illumination Entertainment uses the Mario movie to launch the NCU

  18. So has anyone tried a flight stick+mouse combo for non-flight games? I'm pondering trying it out because it might be the only way to get natural analog controls while still having a lot of buttons easily accessible.

  19. Finished Smash Ultimate Classic Mode on 9.9 Intensity. First try. Probably because I used Kirby.

    But seriously, it was honestly a lot easier to do than previous games.

    1. KHCast


      I got 9.5 with Cloud.  I’m good with that 

    2. Zaysho


      The difficulty doesn't seem as harsh as Smash 4's was, though I still had to work at it to clear Lucina's campaign on 9.9.

  20. 100% completed World of Light. Hell yes.

    Also, did the true ending single-life challenge as Ganondorf. With the right spirit setup (I picked a maxed out Soma Cruz using Tank Style with Celebi for constant healing), he demolishes bosses with his powerful hits. The first phase with all the platforming is a big hurdle, though.

    1. KHCast


      You...did every spirit challenge already? God damn man 

    2. Candescence


      Well, just the ones in World of Light. I've still got 600+ Spirit Board challenges to go.

      But yeah, there's hundreds of spirit battles in WoL to get through. It's a bit crazy.  But for how little story there is directly conveyed in Ultimate, what story there is is fucking bonkers.

  21. I feel Soul Calibur VI is way too technical for me at higher levels. It feels like I can lose most of my life bar in a single combo without being able to do anything about it.

  22. Just a reminder that basically most of the plot of Fullmetal Alchemist started because some idiot clerk listed Edward Elric's age as 31, which is why Mustang went to Resembool to recruit him. He only found out the Elric brothers' real age when he was almost at their home.

  23. Here's a livestream of a Peregrine Falcon couple raising a few chicks in Melbourne: https://g0.ipcamlive.com/player/player.php?alias=367falconcamera

  24. Currently binge-watching Overlord. Wow, this show is really good.

  25. I love how this Bowsette/Boweach stuff is a natural extrapolation of a power-up Nintendo themselves devised, to the point where it's spread over to Sonic and Shadow as well.

    Nintendo, you fools, you brought this on yourselves.

    1. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      Technically, they did specify that it only works on Toadette. 

      It's just that nobody cares.

      Bowsette the Evil Koopa Sorceress is strangely fitting.

    3. Polkadi~☆


      i think they made a new fetish

    4. Bobnik


      The first thing I saw when I woke up was "Boweach" being a thing

      and already seeing NSFW stuff

      Nintendo how are you so oblivious

      And yes I have seen Soneach and Shadeach already

      i hate that this power-up even exists

    5. Lord-Dreamerz


      I love that this power-up exists!

      It's amusing and I'm greatly enjoying seeing this become more and popular, plus all the lovely fan art. Hohoo!

    6. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      Isabelle, K.Rool, a Chain Chomp, Yoshi, Ridley, Bowser Jr, Mario, Waluigi, TJ "Henry" Yoshi, I've seen a lot on the meme page.
