  1. the next nintendo direct announcement is gonna hit real different

  2. Got up to the "Ba Sing Se arc" of Avatar. It was only about 5 episodes long, but alot happened during it. 

    I was thinking about how if it were a One Piece arc it's length would probably equal the entirety of Avatar's length lol. In Avatar most stories are started and wrapped up usually in just one episode. In One Piece much more time is taken for a story to wrap up.

    I think both approaches are cool in their own way. I gotta say though, it'd be really cool to see Ba Sing Se's story expanded to the scale of a One Piece arc.

  3. The stuff being revealed in the Smash community is so heartbreaking. I really respected and supported a number of these people, especially Nairo. He was my favorite player and streamer. I was inspired by his skill level and playstyle, and how he acted in his community. I wanted to be as good as him someday.

    Now I don't even know how much I wish to get involved in this community anymore. It's so disappointing

      thank you so much man. i hope you're doing well

  4. im bout to main Min Min and change my tag to Luffy

  5. Finally done with P5R. Was a joy to play through P5 again, as expected. All the small tweaks to the game were much appreciated, and I found the new arc very interesting. Some of the new music I'm gonna be listening to on repeat for the foreseeable future.

    The new final boss was one my biggest highlights. I found it much more climactic than Yaldabaoth. 

    The one thing that really bugged me was Kasumi. She's cool and all but I didn't like how much emphasis the game gave her over the other Phantom Thieves. 

    Got some small nitpicks about some of the music changes too (that probably bother me way more than they should).  It's actually a crime that you can only hear Last Surprise during a non-ambush battle. They should give you the option to have it always play.

    P5R's opening animation and song are pretty good but the og P5 one blows it out of the water imo. I also think Hoshi to Bokura to was a more satisfying ending song as it's the vocal version of the track you hear during the game when something important regarding the Phantom Thieves happens.

    Overall tho, the negatives were for sure outweighed by the positives, and I had a blast with P5 once again.

    1. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      Wat, Kasumi only gets focus in the literal back half of the game after the thieves already got theirs 

    2. Adamabba

      Adamabba

      Alot of her moments feel shoehorned in. There's stuff like her appearing often before her arc, her appearing in Sae's palace to save Joker, her anime dance cutscene, her being the last person Joker sees in the ending, stuff like that. She even takes up the most space on the boxart lol.

      The game ships her HARD with Joker too. She really feels like the canon relationship in this game. It felt more ambiguous in the og game and that made much more sense.

       

    3. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      If you compare her directly to Marie, she's honestly not as shoehorned imo. She gets enough screentime to establish who she is, but her character isn't fleshed out until the new portion of the game at the end. 

      I honestly don't see it; she's a new character, so they obviously needed to promote her, otherwise she'd come off as superfluous. The other thieves already had their time in the spotlight, so I don't see the problem in focusing on the new character in the update. 

    4. Adamabba

      Adamabba

      It doesn't make sense to me. It's still the same story revolving around the same characters. If she was introduced in a sequel to P5 and had her focus there I'd be fine with it

  6. in P5R the level of drip each character has increases tenfold during the 3rd semester 

  7. I was thinking it'd be cool if KKB did video game music just hours before Bugsnax was revealed

  8. Loool I just heard Futaba say "Shall I give you this pair" while playing Tycoon with her in P5R. 

    Erica Lindbeck already had FF7 voice work out before FF7 even came out

  9. man I have been playing so many RPGs recently and it looks like P4G is yet another I'll pick up soon.

    1. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      What have you been playing lately?

    2. Adamabba

      Adamabba

      Right now I'm playing Persona 5 R and DQXIS. Earlier this year I played FF7 and then its remake. I was also considering maybe picking up Xenoblade DE once I'm done with the games I'm playing now.

    3. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      XIS is pretty great; it feels like a good balance of classic RPG (which DQ rarely strays from) with enough modern conveniences that make it easier to pick up. I've been enjoying the classic worlds a lot. 

      Xenoblade DE is definitely worth checking out too. This is probably my fourth overall playthrough of the original Xenoblade and I think it holds up pretty well, and it's especially nice with its upgrades and improvements across the board.

  10. Trials & Tribulations Questioning music is a banger

      It's good! Not one of my favourite pieces from the original trilogy though, and probably my least favourite of the original cross examination themes.  Personally I love how dark and cold the JFA track sounds.

      Somehow each theme seems to realyl work with the cases fromtheir specific games. It's probably just by association, but the above tracks sounds so perfect for testimonies like Morgan Fey, Ini Miney, anything to do with a cold winter night at the circus or when Shelley De Killer is lying on the stand.

      JFA's track made me so anxious

      This makes me nervous, but probably not what you meant:

       

  11. Happy birthday!

  12. i got to replace my GBA battery and have been feeling some extreme nostalgia replaying Sonic Advance 2. it got me thinking of how my perception of the series was so much simpler back when i used to play the game often. 

    1. Ferno

      Ferno

      I totally bought into Cream being the official "#5" back then. 

  13. When Morgana says "Your power's incredible Joker" at the end of a battle it sounds like the VA forgot she was supposed to be acting.

  14. Happy 10th anniversary to Super Mario Galaxy 2. It's a masterpiece and deserves all the love in the world

    1. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano

      Oh, definitely. I thought it was even better than the first Galaxy, and I hold that game in very high regard too.

    2. Supah Berry

      2010 in general is what I consider a massive turning point of my life since I was entering high school, and Galaxy 2 made it all the more note worthy. After Brawl, it was the first hype train I climbed on where I got really invested in what was being shown off, looking up all the new videos they posted the closer it came too launch. Nowadays, it's pretty difficult to fathom the idea that the game that scored higher than "Ocarina of Time" I feel has become underrated and overlooked.

       

      Nowadays, it seems like when most people point at this game, it's when they bring up Miyamoto says "No moar stohwiz in Mario", the parts that reference older games (SMW music, Whomp Fortress remake), how said references meant Mario's using too much nostalgia, or how it's "too linear" and they demand more 64/Sunshine 3D titles which resulted in Odyssey. This is why I hope they include G2 in the Switch ports so it could get second wind alongside the first.

      2 was good and paved the way for the 3D Land/World games, but I preferred 1 in almost every aspect.

    4. Adamabba

      Adamabba

      @Sean i believe you meant to say you preferred 2 in almost every aspect 🔫

    5. Sean

      Sean

      Nah.

    6. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano

      There are definitely specific things I prefer about 1, even if I think 2 had better level design.

      I feel like 1 had better atmosphere and I appreciated its story more.

      Galaxy 1 was better. It was different compared to before. Galaxy 2 was more of an expansion pack.

    8. StaticMania

      StaticMania

      When you're right, you're right.

      Super Mario Galaxy MORE is definitely the better game.

    9. Jack out of the comics!

      Jack out of the comics!

      Super Mario Galaxy 2 expands by adding Yoshi, more different power-ups and worlds, so it increases the appeal, sure.

      But Galaxy 1 is fucking revolutionary, man, plus there's a lot more Rosalina, eheh. I wouldn't say 2 added nothing, but Galaxy introduced waaay more stuff.

    10. TheOcelot

      TheOcelot

      Haven't played it. Hoping for a Switch port.

      Galaxy 1 was the more entrancing experience for being first and retains a lot of goodwill from that which can't be taken away by the fact that Galaxy 2 was overall more content-dense with tighter level design.

      Galaxy 2 is probably the better game when taken just as a game, but I'd never recommend anyone not play them in order.  2 stands on the shoulders of giants.

      Personally I consider them Part 1 and Part 2 of (to steal Matthewmatosis' line) a single very long Mario game that gets slightly easier in the middle.  Whenever I feel like playing Mario Galaxy, I play them both one after another.

  15. Whoa I did not know you could download all of vanilla P5's dlc for free for Royal

  16. this is one of my favorite twitter accounts

     

     

  17. i keep my ff7r deluxe box on my bed with me like a teddy bear

  18. aaaa I just found my Sonic Advance 2 cartridge. I bought a charger for my GBA SP a couple months back but the battery is dead so I still gotta get a replacement.

  19. I finished the Ace Attorney trilogy a while back, it was a really fun time. Not sure if I need to get the next games in the series. I felt like T&T's last case was a nice way to wrap it up.

    1. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      Oh trust me you're gonna hate 4 after how well T&T's final case was handled.

      Apollo Justice was originally envisioned as an entirely separate entry, but Capcom forced the inclusion of Phoenix and the story is pretty weak for it. It's alright, but you have to look past some pretty glaring flaws in the individual cases that don't get addressed. The characters are all very enjoyable, apart from Trucy.

      Dual Destinies and Spirit of Justice suck. Shitty characters like Athena and Trucy, two stories about saving the world from a corrupt legal system in a stupidly contrived way and the ass-pulliest of plot threads. And the worst voice acting ever. Everyone's voice is bleeeeurgh. I think they're generally quite well-regarded games amongst fans, but honestly I couldn't disagree much more. 

      You should play the Professor Layton crossover if you like the Layton series. It's more Phoenix and Maya shenanigans with very fun court sessions and actually decent voice acting (neither Phoenix nor Maya have the same actors here as in the main series). The first Edgeworth spinoff is anywhere so-so to pretty bad depending on who you ask, but it sets the ground for a much improved sequel. Unfortunately said sequel never got localised officially, so you'll have to use a fan made translation of you want to play it. 

      I'm genuinely curious about what the series might do next. After DD and SoJ both managed to suck so much, I hope that Capcom could finally have the balls to start a new instalment with a brand new set of characters. You're right when you say that T&T was a great closing to the original trilogy. They should have moved on to telling different stories with new characters right away.

      I've only played the first two. Really liked 1, liked a lot of the new ideas and inclusions in 2 but was kind of whatever about the story, in particular whenever Phoenix was being a little bitch. I want to play 3 at some point but it's not something I'm in a hurry to do though I've heard it's probably the best game in the series.

    4. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      @Zaysho Do it. T&T is really, really good. I think it's hard to rank the first three games in any set order because each has its highs and lows, but you're definitely missing out if you've yet to try it.

      Spoiler for opinions, no plot details:

      JFA has both the worst and best case in the original trilogy one directly after the other. Big Top is dreadful but Farewell is amazing. It lacks any overarching plot like the other games. AA sets up everything nicely and didn't need any sequels. T&T brings everything to a close. It's a bit long in the tooth, but the plot threads it ties up and the curve balls that it throws are so good.

    5. Sean

      I thought VS was pretty boring and I'm not a Layton fan so the heavy slant toward that side of the crossover didn't do much to win me over.

    6. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Spoilers for the crossover:

      It does feel like it's heavily in favour of Layton throughout. The entire plot is just another Layton plot, wherein nothing makes sense until Layton himself comes up with a totally nonsense and implausible solution to the "puzzle" of the city at the very end. Individual cases though? Very fun.

      If you like Layton games, definitely give it a go. If not, don't bother. And if you've not played a Layton game, give Curious Village (the first in the series) a go first. The crossover isn't the best of either series, but it's am enjoyable entry in both. Better than the shit fest of Spirit of Justice at any rate...

  20. man almost every new game I've played after Smash came out has been an RPG.

    and there was a time I thought this genre was boring too

    1. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      They're slower, but I honestly find them pretty engaging. I've always liked them but the older I get I think I appreciate their pace more and seeing what kinds of systems I like and how they work as well looking at what goes into making them.

  21. I noticed they brought back Horita for the Sonic & the Olympic Games ost. that's what I like to see.

  22. it took a pandemic for Toei to finally take a break from making One Piece episodes

    1. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      holy shit they actually stopped?

       

      the world has truly come to an end

    2. Ferno

      Ferno

      Pokemon's seemingly taking a break too

  23. Take Over is fine but I really wish you could still have Last Surprise as the ambush theme. I wanna hear it more often

    1. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      Last Surprise is the default battle theme if you don't do an Ambush. 

  24. Final Fantasy VII days to go
