  1. Whenever I order something off Amazon that I'm kinda "whatever" towards, it shows up on my doorstep the very next morning by 10am. When it's something I'm super excited for, I have to wait a couple days and then it doesn't show up until like 6pm or something. I JUST WANT MY DOODADS AND KNICKKNACKS!!!

  2. See? There’s that ham again.

      That was probably the strangest joke in the movie.

      That blue ham again of all places. 

  3. Whenever I replay SA1 I'm always surprised at how much I actually enjoy most of the gameplay styles. This is pretty much the only 3D Sonic where I can say that.

  4. My complaints of River City Girl’s difficulty has eased up now that I’ve gotten further and unlocked way more moves. I still think it’s a problem in the early game but crowds are feeling much more manageable now.

    That would be my advice to anyone looking to play it: save up your money and focus on buying as many new attacks as you can, they’re kind of required.

  5. So far I’m really liking River City Girls but I do have one problem that I hope eases up (I’m still in the early parts). This feels like one of those co-op focused games that doesn’t really adjust its difficulty for single player. It’s really easy to get swarmed and get your ass absolutely beat, which is made only more punishing by how much money you lose when you die.

    That’s an early impression though, I’m hoping I’ll change my mind once I get some good crowd-control attacks.

    Aside from that, it controls great and it oozes so much charm that it’s hard to not like it. The writing’s been really funny, too. It’s not often a game makes me actually laugh out loud but it’s doing the job.

  6. Invader Zim was 15 years ahead of its time.

    Looking at my Switch's current home screen and I'm starting to see the potential for the system to have a good Virtual Console-style library. It's slow going, but it's progress.

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Yeah, that's the thing: It's slow. It's not just simply lacking the paitence for it; compare the Switch to the Wii Virtual Console. It took one year for Switch to add SNES games when the Wii had them day one. And N64.  (SEGA Genesis and Neo Geo too, but that's different)

      I could understand the 3DS not nintending on having SNES at first, so it was good when that happen. Then there's the Wii U. Asides from not being there when the console launched, like the 3DS, it took two and a half years to bring back N64 games. Though at least they made up for that by having DS games launch alongside it, GBA games launch the year before, and still have SNES at launch.

      Every time a new console releases to start its VC library all over again, it just seems to get slower and slower. At this rate, by time we get to where the Wii U was, the next console will have already been annouced to take that all away. And that's all without taking GCN into account. I can see the VC potential here, it just doesn't make sense to me on how they do it.

    2. Speederino


      Gamecube is the big one, but I at least want to see N64 and GBA on Switch before its end. But knowing Nintendo they’ll probably finally do it like three months after the next big console is released or some shit.

  8. The Sphinx was so cute, I had to shave it.

  9. Stop what you're doing right now I found something REALLY important.

    1. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      This is what I stay up at 3am for.

  10. Aside from Waluigi, who are some actual first-party Nintendo characters you want to see in Smash? I'm thinking Paper Mario as my top pick. Maybe also Tingle.

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Some of my bigger choices are either already Assisst Trophies (Which also applied 3rd party-wise) or could pass of as Echo Fighters. (Octolings)


      I agree that Zelda could use another non-Link rep, there's also Chibi Robo and Rythem Haven. Porky and Black Shadow would be ok if we do more villains, and I guess a 3 Houses and S&S reps aren't too far off... But it's otherwise just the usual Paper Mario and Bandana Dee.


      Through it all, I still think it's primarily non Nintendo stuff from now on until proven otherwise.

    2. Zaysho


      Xeno characters, don't really care who (Elma, Rex & Pyra or Mythra are my personal picks). I'd also love to see something weird and Japanese-only get brought in to get some attention like Captain Rainbow or something. I feel like Nintendo has a lot of stuff that could use the Fire Emblem treatment by being shown off in Smash to gain interest.

      Those aside, I'm partial to Ghirahim or seeing another Pokémon trainer, but a villain like Giovanni, would be really cool.

    3. Jingilator



      -DeMille (from an obscure game called Tomato Adventure)

      -Adeleine and Ribbon

    4. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      Spook owl

      Robo Waifu (though I wouldn't mind a sword waifu)

      That's all that I can think of really

  11. Random thought but I'm calling it now: Nier Automata will get a Switch port. I mean why not? It's a big hit and if we're being honest it's not that graphically impressive (I've always said the environments look last-gen). It might take a little tweaking/downgrading but if Overwatch and modern Doom games can work, Nier sure as shit can.

  12. I'm aware I might be stepping in shit here but I gotta be honest: I'm kinda regretting getting the Smash Fighter Pass instead of just cherry picking the characters I want. I'm happy for those of you who wanted and were excited for the other characters, but personally the only ones I've cared about so far are Banjo and maybe Piranha Plant out of the sheer silliness of it. So I could have just bought them and saved myself the other $15 or so. Here's hoping the fifth character catches my attention more.

    And yeah if they offer a new pass for the other DLC characters I'm obviously skipping on it until they're revealed.

    1. Speederino


      I will say this though: I do like the way Hero plays. I don't think I'll be maining him, but that's nice at least. Hopefully Terry and Bubsy (it's gonna be Bubsy) end up doing that much.

    2. Ferno


      We'll probably be back to cartoon mascot-esque characters in the next batch tbh, since it'll probably be Sakurai's choice picks again rather than Nintendo's olive-branch/ "lets represent companies close to us" style picks

    3. Speederino


      I have zilch sources for this but the last rumor-thingy I heard is that they (not sure if it was Sakurai or Nintendo) wanted to focus on Japanese characters. I'm not totally against that, but so far it feels like they're choosing characters who are well known ONLY in Japan and just kinda niche everywhere else (maybe Persona is a much bigger deal outside of Japan than I realize, idk. I know it has a passionate fanbase).

      Cuz there's plenty of Japanese characters I'd get excited if not downright hyped for. Just to name a few off the top of my head: Phoenix Wright, Dante, Ryu from Ninja Gaiden, Travis Touchdown, Leon Kennedy. The only western-specific character I'm rooting for all that much is Crash, and even then I'm not really expecting it.

    4. Ferno


      I know I harp on Rayman a lot but I just realized that if he gets in that'd be a big win for France.

    5. Speederino


      Rayman would be cool. Also to give credit where it's due, we did more-or-less get Sans. That's pretty cool shit.

    6. Ferno


      anything is fair game now its crazy

      Bonk? Pepsiman? Shaq? heck bring errrybody

    7. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      It's little wonder they declared there'd be more fighters after revealing one they figured wouldn't sit well with Westerners.

    8. Ferno


      tbh I think they should've waited until the 5th fighter to announce that, it would've been an even wilder "but wait there's more!" reveal

      sakurai coulda been like: 


      "we got more"

    9. Speederino


      Yeah but I can honestly say I might be feeling a bit more bitter about it right now if they hadn't announced that already. I'd be placing all of my hopes on the fifth character which probably wouldn't have been smart/healthy, especially when it turns out to be yet another JRPG anime boy from a series I'm only semi-vaguely aware of. >_>

  13. Since the Smash character select screen is getting so huge it would be nice if we had a way of sorting it based on favorites or series or something. It’s kinda annoying having to play Where’s Waldo whenever you want to use someone who isn’t a go-to of yours.

    1. Jingilator


      E x t r a F i g h t e r s

    2. JezMM


      Literally I would give anything to have a "group by series" rather than chronology switch for both characters AND stages.  Hell, even an alphabetical ordering option too would make finding a particular character/stage even easier if one wanted to do it that way, there's enough content to justify it.

    3. Strickerx5


      Yo, a sort by favorites option would be great.

    4. Wraith


      I know the order of the smash character reveals and which stages debuted in which game by heart so I actually prefer this UI over the last game but I think they should let you customize it as a feature anyway.

  14. I think I'll probably pick up Overwatch on Switch but ngl I'm kinda worried about how stable it's gonna be. Because, you know...Nintendo. Online.

    But yeah for now I intend to unless I hear it's really bad.

    1. Ryannumber1Santa


      Shouldn't be a worry, you do connect to Nintendo's Online service, but the game is run through Blizzard's servers through all consoles, so it'll be Blizzard's far more stable servers on Switch, as opposed to Nintendo's.

    2. Speederino


      That’s good. Hopefully there will be no issues then.

  15. You know what, I never did finish World of Light. I'll go back to that file and wrap it up!

    *loads file*

    *has absolutely no idea what's going on or what he's meant to be doing*

    *looks at map, still isn't sure*

    Um...I mean, I guess I can also start it over? Y-yeah.

  16. Hey Big Buy

    Hey Little Guy

    Can you tell me who came first

    Sorry but I don’t know

    1. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano


  17. If Classic Mode's scores are anything to go off of, Banjo is already one of my best characters. I expected nothing less.

  18. I expect to be ridiculed but what if I told you I had never heard of Fatal Fury until 30 minutes ago? :U

    1. Dejimon11


      Judging twitter in the last few days seems like a lot of people didn't know either along with who SNK is.

  19. I am oddly ecstatic about Jedi Outcast on Switch, simply because I thought there was zilch chance of old Star Wars games getting ported. This gives me hope.

    Plus fuck yeah I’d play Outcast again.

    1. Badnik Zero

      Badnik Zero

      ... That’s really happening?!

    2. Speederino


      Yep! Comes out later this month.

    3. Badnik Zero

      Badnik Zero

      It’s only my favorite Star Wars shooter. Literally the best news I’ve heard today.

  20. I've seen a leaked version of the Direct from my cousin's nephew's best friend's uncle who works at a company that once did business with Nintendo in 1998. It contains:

    - Chibi-Robo Ziplash 2: Ziplash-ier

    - Mario & Sonic at the Special Olympic Games

    - Atari Jaguar 64bit Collection

    - LEGO Game of Thrones

    - Moneybags in Smash

    - Mario is Missing 2

    - Metroid Prime 4 gets scrapped altogether, replaced with Metroid Prime Blastball 2

    1. Ryannumber1Santa


      "I'd love to use my final smash..." 

      "...erm, for a small fee, of course" 

      -Pay Moneybags $5 to use final smash?

      -Yes! -Yes!

    2. Zaysho



      Mario & Sonic at the Special Olympic Games

      Hi, yes, I'd like to report a man has me dying laughing.

    3. Ryannumber1Santa



      Are you saying this man is in-fact, the Joker?

    4. Zaysho


      under the spider-man mask and gandalf beard, I'm positive it's him

    5. Ryannumber1Santa


      the only logical solution

    6. DarkRula


      And then Captain Falcon appears on screen. F-Zero...


      Racing Vehicle Wash


    7. Ryannumber1Santa


      How could you forget the best announcement? Kirby: Dededating Simulator??

    8. DarkRula


      But Dedede doesn't need to Dededate someone. He already has a Dededelightful partner.

    9. Speederino
    10. Ryannumber1Santa


      Yes. Mask.


  21. Caved and bought Genesis Collection for Switch. I would just like to say I have always really liked Comix Zone but would it kill Sega to re-release it with some less punishing difficulty or some cheats, just once? Infinite lives would go a long way.

    1. Cayenne


      There's this cheat for unlimited health on GameFAQs:


      If you want unlimited go to jukebox in the options menu and push C on these numbers.3, 12,17,2, 2, 10, 2, 7, 7,11.You should hear skecth say ''oh yeah''.

      Never tried to use it, so I don't know if this really works.

    2. Speederino


      I got the "Oh yeah" so I guess so. Thanks! I'd still prefer unlimited lives over full-on invincibility but this is a step in the right direction.

      Turns out there's a level select cheat too, so that's nice. Scratch that, the level select code didn't work. Ah well.

  22. Okay guys I think I've uncovered something important here. You know that "burger" restaurant in Station Square?


    What do we see on that counter? Soda, pizza...no burgers. None. Where are the burgers? WHERE ARE THE BURGERS??? I declare shenanigans on this restaurant!!! SHENANIGANS!!!!!!!!

    1. Mad Convoy

      Mad Convoy

      out of stock.

      eggman really does a number on the supply chain when he’s doing a scheme. especially with chaos making almost everything soggy and gross.

    2. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry


      I don't think Station Square was a safe place to live, even before it was sunk

    3. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      This just makes me think about how fun and interesting the entire setting of SA1 was. 

    4. Little T

      Little T

      In the UK, it's really common for local fast food joints to sell burgers, pizzas and kebabs. Maybe no-ones ordered a burger in a while, or they're hidden off camera


      ... either that or pizzas are easier to model in low-poly 🤔

  23. Trying to play the (modded) Steam version of Sonic Adventure. Everything's all well and good until I try to project it on my TV. Depending on the exact settings, the game either has bad framerate issues or just flat-out doesn't work. I have no idea why a 20 year old game is giving me trouble.

    Ah well, guess I'll just play it directly on the PC for the time being.


  25. Why is his head so big? Whyyyyy is his head so biiiiiiiiig?
