  1. I like how there's that one zora in BotW who will give you a diamond in exchange for 10 luminous stones; but the combined worth of 10 luminous stones is higher than a diamond, soooo...shove that diamond right up your gill-holes, good sir.

    1. Speederino

      BEFORE ANYONE SAYS IT yes, there's like one craftable piece of equipment you can use diamonds for. But if you already have/don't care about that...yeah.

    2. Sega DogTagz

      Its not about the value of the item, its about having a guaranteed diamond drop to re-forge one of the Zora specific weapons.

      Not that those weapons were anything all to special, but if you lost your ornamental Zora weapon, and wanted to get another you could always make another one by giving up a diamond in exchange.

      Welp, should have posted that thing about two minutes earlier XD

      i feel dumb now because i never did the math until now and kept trading stones for diamonds to make money

    5. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      So a side question, did/does anyone actually use those special weapons? During my playthrough I just stuck them in my house and kept on using the ones I found in the world. Just didn't want to risk breaking and having to go through the trouble of getting them back.

      Hell, I often hesitate to even pull out the guardian tech unless I felt the occasion absolutely needed them.

    6. Ferno

      Ferno

      I used em till they all broke and now I gotta make them again

    7. Speederino

      Speederino

      I'd use them when I got them but I never go through the trouble to re-forge them. The world is littered with weapons, there's nothing that special about the champion weapons.

    8. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      I pretty much never used any weapon except the Master Sword once I got it. Kinda ruined the exploring part for me when it came to weapon drops tbh, except for bows and arrows and such.

      Kinda tempted to reset the game from scratch as a result to play without the Master Sword as a result.

    9. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Yeah, I never bothered with them either. They aren't so incredible that they outclass regular weapons by any real margin, and it's an effort to reforge then them they'll break so quickly. Diamonds aren't so bad to come by (especially once you have Silver-level enemies dropping them left and right), but it's still a nuisance to go and find a basic weapon to use in the crafting process and then to return to the village. Offering up weapons as a reward progression is a strange design choice.

      For what it's worth, I love the durability system in the game. I hope that the sequel brings it bsck, but also introduces a greater variety of weapons and nerfs some of the OP abilities. One-shotting fire/ice enemies is cheap, and freezing/electrocuting enemies is so cheeseable. BotW's big issue is that it lacks balance for experienced players.

    10. Zaysho

      I think I'd use the Champion weapons once in a while, break them, reforge them, and then just hang them up in Link's house. I usually enjoyed/preferred hunting for weapons.

  2. Merry Christmas, everyone.

  3. God I love Link Between Worlds.

    1. Ferno

      Ferno

      Some of my fondest 3DS memories right there. Still gotta replay it and do hard mode

    2. Vertical Snoop [D.K.]

      Vertical Snoop [D.K.]

      Honestly? Of the few Zelda games I've played, Link Between Worlds is one of the only ones where I can play it to the end and say "I get it, I see the appeal".

      Every other Zelda game I've played (LttP, OOT, WW and BoTW) has something holding them back from being truly spectacular, but LBW fires on all cylinders and makes everything click. The perfect Zelda as far as I'm concerned.

  4. I hate to say it, but I think I can lump 2002 Spider-Man in with Ocarina of Time in the “I have experienced this thing so many times that it’s now boring to me” pile.

    There is an ironic honor to it, though. The fact I’ve watched or played a thing to that extent speaks volumes of how much I like it.

    1. Soniman

      Soniman

      Hey that's a honor. It only took ONE time for BOTW to become boring *dab*

  5. Looking to grab some GBA games, thought I'd replace my dead Fire Emblem cart but geeeeeeeeeeeeez that one ain't cheap. I've found one listing at a decent price but the description makes it sound like it's just loaded onto a flash cart or something? I'll consider it but I might be better off sticking with the Wii U VC version lol

  6. Sweet, snagged that GBA SP off an eBay auction! It would have been for a really nice price too, if some poopface hadn't tried to snipe me at the last second. As is, eh, still cheaper than a lot of listings out there.

    1. PaulyBFromDa303

      PaulyBFromDa303

      I've still got mine from high school. The blue good one. Not the cool tattoo edition where the R button fell off. I got it signed by Ryan Drummond at Revolution recently

    2. Speederino

      Speederino

      I still have mine but it died years ago. (Pretty much everything I used to bring with me in high school is in shit-tastic condition now lol) I bought another super cheap in meh condition, and soon after buying it I found out there was an updated version of the SP with a much better light and I’ve wanted one ever since. Now I just need to track down some games I missed out on.

  7. Does eBay look, feel, and navigate like a website from the mid 00's or am I crazy?

    1. Menace2Society

      Menace2Society

      I always thought eBay’s interface felt outdated as heck.

    2. Speederino

      Speederino

      Right? It looks so basic and has no personality.

    3. Menace2Society

      Menace2Society

      Exactly. Makes it feel really shady, which is why I never felt comfortable doing online shopping there.

    4. Speederino

      Speederino

      It also doesn't work very well. I'm trying to link to my PayPal (which I KNOW I did at one point but k) and I just...can't. The "link accounts" button sends me to the "create account" page on Paypal and I can't do diddly-doo about it. I Googled it and this has apparently been a problem for years. What are they even doing?

    5. Menace2Society

      Menace2Society

      Idk, but if that has been an issue for years, then that just shows that they really don’t care about their site anymore.

  8. I really hate how your Gmail and Youtube accounts are literally the same thing. I keep my Gmail professional-ass complete with my real name and a photo, so using it to post the occasional Youtube comment feels awkward as fuck next to GamerSlammer1986 and xX_Edgefarts99_xX.

    1. Speederino

      Speederino

      I guess I need to just create a separate Gmail for Youtube but I don't think there's a way to import all your subscriptions and shit, right?

    2. DiamondX

      DiamondX

      I'm 99% sure you can make a Youtube account separated from your Gmail one.

    3. Speederino

      Speederino

      From what I can tell I can create a separate channel but I can't find a way to straight-up unlink the two accounts. And if I go on Youtube and try to change anything, I'm taken to my main Google account.

      I guess I'll just have to go with the first option. It'll be annoying re-subbing to everything but *shrug*

  9. I've been saying for a while that I want a good-condition GBA SP with the updated backlight. I've always held off because the price tends to be anywhere between the $100-$150 mark, give or take (for the color I want, anyways). But you know...it ain't gonna get any cheaper. I'm tempted to just bite the bullet and snag one before the prices skyrocket even more.

    1. Speederino

      Speederino

      I know there's a chance I might get super lucky and find an eBay listing from someone who doesn't know how much it's worth; or maybe even find one at a yard sale or some shit but what the fuck even are those odds?

    2. Ferno

      Ferno

      that feel. the struggle is always real a decade or so down the road whenever you decide to finally grab a popular console or game thats considered old and/or valuable now. 

      I'm just now getting to that stage in my adult life where I have just enough disposable income to even begin tracking down game stuff from years ago that I was too broke to buy during my childhood/ teen years

    The ending is building up to a live-action adaptation of One More Day.

      They'd probably sooner do like what they did with "Hail Hydra" in Endgame and mock it to hell and back

       

      Also, this sounds more likely something the Spiderverse would do

       

  11. Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life is one of those games I'm probably never going to finish no matter how hard I try. It's just too damn long. I get to the end of the first year, feel like I've had my fill, and then realize there's nine more. Niiiiiiiiine.

    Maybe I need to take it slow. Let it take (real actual) years if I have to. Just promise myself not to start over after a long hiatus. Maybe then.

  12. I'm just kinda in the mood to reflect on the Wii/DS era for some reason. It had its bumps but that was sure an interesting time for gaming. The hype train for the Wii in particular...sheesh, that was something.

    1. Speederino

      Speederino

      My favorite part about getting the Wii is how my entire family caught a stomach virus immediately after getting it. I'm not *saying* the Wii was literally contaminated, but it was literally contaminated.

    2. Sean

      Sean

      A game I played a while ago and still need to finish is Another Code R. I've been emulating it on Dolphin but I adore Cing's games so much I had to import a European copy to own.

    3. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      While I really don't like the state the Wii put Nintendo in (it's the sole cause as to why they've consistently been a generation behind for the past decade, it's what led them down that emphasizing the casual market path, ect.), I won't lie and say that 2005-early 2008 weren't very exciting times for the company. The amount of hype content that came in that time is staggering.

    4. Ferno

      Ferno

      Still gotta nab a used Wii on ebay before they skyrocket in price probably. Wanna beat the few Wii games I still own after selling my first Wii when money was tight that I originally got in 2010 for Colors.

      Top game on my list to play first once I have a Wii again is Rodea

    5. Sean

      Sean

      Rodea is the best third party game on the system and hard proof that Naka's still got it

    6. Ferno

      Ferno

      Really rooting for Naka to make something again. I don't know what he's done since Rodea but whatever he does next my wallet's already spread wide open.

      i know what that sounded like

      yes it was on purpose

      what're you gonna do tell my mom

    7. Speederino

      Speederino

      I wouldn’t mind snagging a good condition DS Lite, myself. Mine’s been through a good few scraps and isn’t much fun to use.

      Although I think I want a good GBA SP even more.

    8. Ferno

      Ferno

      Still have a good-condition DSi but my Lite has seen better days. It really was the weakest Ninty handheld, had a nice Apple look but also had Apple fragility- OHHHHHHH

      foreshadowing for when Disney buys Nintendo in 2027

  13. I never understood why Nintendo didn't bring more GBA games to 3DS aside from the Ambassador Program. Yes, they're emulations. Yes, they lack the typical VC features because of it. But so what? They were GBA games on the 3DS, and they worked. I would have guzzled that shit up.

    1. Ferno

      Ferno

      They would've taken SO much of my money.

      You can inject gba/gb/gbc/nes games and turn them into vc games by hacking.  (besides, gba emulation is awful on normal 3ds)

      Not only in your phone but also with FAST FORWARD a feature that Game Freak still don't know what it is that is in every rpg since 2009!

      That would require Nintendo to be even somewhat competent at keeping their legacy content available.

  14. I don't use Wii remotes often anymore (like maybe twice a year, tops? lol) but whenever I do I always miss having a good charging station for them. The one I have now sucks and has nothing on the Nyko station I used to have.

    1. Vertical Snoop [D.K.]

      Let me guess...

      You too?

    2. Milo

      Milo

      I assume by Nyko charging station, you mean these?

      17mz8c1thpiwajpg.jpg

      I have one. It was good for a while (I'd say the first two years of use) but the Nyko rechargable battery packs eventually stopped charging properly. Nowadays when I use my Wiimotes I just scrounge for standard batteries, lol.

      I thought sometimes of maybe just getting rechargable standard batteries by Energizer and such and using the wall plug-in recharging docks for them, this stuff:

      blacks-energizer-chprowb4-64_1000.jpg

      But I don't play Wii games as often as I do to motivate myself to get one. (They also cost more than standard batteries, albeit not as much as they used to in the past IIRC.)

    3. Speederino

      Speederino

      Not quite but close enough. Do the batteries barely hold a charge and is the charge indicator light super unreliable?

    4. Milo

      Milo

      @Speederino Nowadays, yes to both questions. But I'm talking about a charging station I got...like, about the late 2000s (2008-2009). I dunno if the charging stations' functionality / rechargable batteries' lifespan been improved since then; but I think a modern, brand-new charging station one shouldn't have the problems I'm talking about out the box. I'm bringing my experience up as mainly something to watch out for later down the line.

    5. Speederino

      Speederino

      Sorry I was talking to Snoop, we must have posted at the exact same instant. My Nyko charger held 4 remotes (even though I only had 2) and lasted a good few years.

      All the chargers I’ve tried since then have been ass; basically defective out of the box. The one I have now at least *works* but that’s the nicest thing I can say.

    6. Chili Dawg

      Chili Dawg

      I had a great charging station once

      Then I left it sitting on top of a space heater...

    7. Speederino

      Speederino

      I've spent like half an hour trying to figure out what I had. Apparently it was NOT Nyko, it was Psyclone (who I think went out of business). It would have been like this one:

      170176-psyclonecharingstation_350.jpg

      Except this one was a piece of shit. I can't find anything about the one I actually liked, lol. Maybe it wasn't a quad charger and I'm just mixing it up with this one.

      EITHER WAY, it was awesome and I miss it. RIP in peace buddy I can barely remember.

  17. I’d been deathly curious about the PS2 version of Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life for years. Trying it off of PS Now and...oof. I knew it had technical issues but wow. Woooooow. A massive shame considering this would be the better version, otherwise.

    1. Speederino

      Speederino

      I admit though, part of me wants to soldier on for a little while. The issues don’t make it totally unplayable but it’s hard to justify playing this when the Gamecube version exists; regardless of the added bells and whistles.

  18. One of my gaming pipe-dreams is to get my hands on a good condition, backlit cobalt blue GBA SP at a price that isn't absolutely ludicrous. My original SP died years ago and the red (frontlit) one I picked up cheap-o at a second-hand store is in rather meh condition. At least it works, though.

  19. I'm kinda tempted to buy a Wii U game. Is this still legal in 2019?

    1. Sean

      Sean

      Tropical Freeze had some brilliant ones from what I recall. That game's level themes are something else.

  24. Can’t connect to a TV, can’t remove the joycons (I actually like detaching them and using the kickstand sometimes). A nice cheap option for people who want that extra portability, but not for me.

    Also of *course* they finally give us a d-pad, but only on a specific model. There always has to be a catch. >_>

    1. Shiguy

      Shiguy

      Yeah, I don't understand why there wasn't another model that has a regular D-pad.

      Playing with OG model's D-pad detached is very awkward.

  25. Okay those rocket barrel levels in Donkey Kong Country Returns can go suck it. I used Super Kong and I’m not even ashamed.

      Neverminding I didn’t know about Crash Guard, they’re extremely unforgiving and the controls are poo so nope, no shame.

    9. Speederino

      Speederino

      I just realized why I didn’t know about Crash Guard: I’m playing the original Wii mode so Cranky isn’t selling it. Welp.
