  1. Breath of the Wild speedruns are looking crazy these days  


    1. Lord-Dreamerz


      I saw that the other day... Loved it, It is prefect! xD

      Also remember to watch that one with the subtitles on. heh!

  2. I love Animal Crossing. New Leaf is the only game in the series that I've played, and it's was delightful. You just kind of... Have to like it. It's relentlessly chilled and happy. But I got really fed up with the game when New villagers kept building their houses in my garden or in the middle of other areas that I'd so meticulously designed. It really was a downer. I would seriously love it if this new game let's you meet new villagers before they build a home. Someone new arrives on the island, and they ask you where they should live. You'd just respond with either "I know the perfect spot", and guide them to somewhere of your choosing, or you tell them "everywhere is great" and they go about it automatically. Seriously, there's nothing worse than being given the freedom to design your perfect little town, and then fucking Puddles builds her house on top of your orchard as close to your house as possible but misaligned by one tile so that she's not even on the same grid. And no, I don't want to visit your garish house this evening. Why would you even invite me after I spent the day attacking you with a bug net and sending you racist letters telling you and the other frogs that you're not welcome? We don't want your kind in our town. I hate Animal Crossing.
  3. Cadence of Hyrule is not meshing with me at all. Even with fixed-beat mode on, the game isn't very fun. But it's a roguelike, and I've never been a fan of them.

      Saw the price and didn't bother lol 

    2. Lord-Dreamerz


      I really enjoyed the Pokemon mystery dungeon games and certain turn based strategy games. So this one might actually be right up my alley personally!

  4. I hope that Breath of the Wild 2 has more combat shrines and perpetual rain.

  5. Never played Spyro before (unless the Seasons games count?), so I'm looking forward to trying this out on Switch. Crash didn't mesh with me at all, but Spyro looks much more like my deal.
  6. I can't wait for the Panzer Dragoon remake to be sent out to die on release.

    1. KHCast


      ...delete this now. I can’t take the reality 

    2. Marcello


      At least Zwei is already announced.

  7. I'm willing to bet it's a very vocal minority on a very limited number of outlets. Most people, be they the hardcore fans or more casual/younger players, won't be aware of the change or won't care enough to cancel their orders. YouTube like/dislike ratio on the video that broke the news is hilarious As of posting... 660k views, 13k likes and 23k dislikes. @Marcello The ride gear looks absolutely awful. It's just one of those really weird things that Game Freak insists on.
  8. Pokémon is definitely bogged down by the fact that Game Freak have historically been very adverse to streamlining. You end up with so many items and features that are so specific and limited in purpose (like dozens of different incenses for baby Pokémon introduced after Gen 2), that many aspects of the game remain a mystery to the player without an online guide. But streamlining like this is the absolute worst. Cutting things out of competitive play? Okay. I can kind of understand that because that's where balance becomes a real issue. Omitting them from the games entirely though? Fuck off. The games have always upheld the tradition of you being able to keep your beloved collection. The one time they dropped it before in Gen 3 was because of a significant change in the data format. The excuse here is one very different. Understandable, but not really passable.
  9. I wonder if the reason you can't transfer non-Galar Pokémon to Sword and Shield is because of Brexit in the Pokémon world?

    "Well you fuckers cut yourself off so you can suffer less immigrant Pokémon"

    1. Polkadi~♪


      ah fuck, so it actually happened in this universe

  10. Still trying to process the fact that BotW is getting a sequel already. If it's out in 2021, it'll be four years since it was released. I didn't expect a sequel to come around anytime so soon, and I definitely didn't expect a direct sequel set in the same Hyrule. I'm so ecstatic

    1. QuantumEdge


      Weirdly, I wouldn't be all too surprised if we hear of it releasing very late next year.  Probably won't be the case, but I feel like it shouldn't be ruled out.

    2. Shaddy Zaphod

      Shaddy Zaphod

      I just hope they make a good story


    3. QuantumEdge


      Yeah, as far as story goes, BOTW felt a bit too loose and vague.  If they can marry the open, do-whatever-the-hell-you-want-ness of BOTW and the storytelling power of Majora, then we'll probably have the Mona Lisa of games.

  11. I can't believe that they're finally dropping the ball this way. It's one thing I never expected them to do, especially when moving on to a home console with way now power and storage capacity than any of the previous handheld games. "You can only transfer Pokémon in the Galar dex to Pokémon Home", the immediate insinuation being that not every Pokémon is available in Sword and Shield. That seemed to be further clarified by Masuda stressing that they thought long and hard about which Pokémon to include that fit the region, and how they put a lot of effort into making those Pokémon have personalities. I don't care what their excuse is, this is a HUGE omission and really, really sucks. I'm glad they were open about it so soon, but damn. Just why?It was bad enough in LGP/E being Kanto only.
  12. Did Masuda just confirm that not every Pokémon is available in Sword and Shield? Like... There's no national dex and Pokémon not found in Galar have been cut entirely, meaning you can't even transfer them into the games?

    1. TCB


      You can't be serious

  13. Watching the Treehouse... The Wild Area looks better than I thought it would.

  14. Was that Ganondorf's body, or something else? I'm so hyped right now. A game built in the framework of BotW is bound to be incredible. And it seems to be a direct sequel? I can't wait to see what they do with it. All we really got from the trailer was that it would retain the lively artstyle of BotW, but the atmosphere of the audio and environment has all creepy tones of OoT, MM and especially TP. I'm super pleased to see that. Digging Zelda's new hair too.
  15. That BotW sequel was everything I dreamed it could be! 

  16. Don't play Smash, not really that fussed able Banjo, but damn that's just perfect. Nice one.

  17. Ha! Panzer Dragoon. Never saw that coming. Awesome 

  18. Phew. Zavok confirmed. I was worried everyone's favourite character wouldn't be in the game.
  19. Yeah, exactly. It's a bit of meme cash-in. Not like they're making Meme Run 2 or even anything close to that, but Spongebob's profile has been raised a bit thanks to the memes and that's probably pushed up this game's profile.
  20. I've never played BFBB, and am only vaguely aware of it because of the cult following that it's picked up in recent years. A quick glance at the reviews on Metacritic tells me that it's a very by the numbers 3D platformer for its day, and isn't anything special, but also isn't bad either. And that alone puts it in high standing compared to other licensed games from back then. I'll watch this space, cause 3D platformers still haven't had much of a resurgence. But it almost feels a touch memetic that such a game is even getting a remaster. I dunno... My hopes aren't high. They're just totally neutral.
  21. Urgh. I'm having a very hard time not getting myself hyped for Sword and Shield. Everything we've seen of the games so far looks great, but it's everything that we haven't seen so far that has me worried. The only thing that I can say with confidence that disappoint is the region itself, Galar looks so fresh and fun. It's way more interesting than the monotony of the tropics in Alola.

    The story could still be crap, the characters could still be annoying (Lily is legit the worst), the Rotomdex could be even more intrusive than before, the progression might be excessively linear and hand-holdy again, there could be hardly any new mons etc etc. For everything that I like about these games so far, none of my major issues with recent instalments have actually been addressed.

    1. Soniman


      Man I don't agree with your hate if Gen VII and it's region, story, characters at all lol but I'm happy your looking forward too SwSh.

      Can't say I still get what the deal is Dynamaxing though 

    2. DarkRula


      While I can't say anything about the story itself, the character interaction is already looking an improvement over SunMoon, I think the Rotom-Phone will be downplayed compared to the Rotomdex [especially since it won't always be visible to you trying to get your attention], and looking at the map again and comparing with the new bits of info we got, I don't think it will be as linear or hand-holdy as some are expecting.

      As already noted, the map doesn't reveal everything, so there could be something of value within that starting area not yet known. If that forest doesn't play a part in the start of the game, I have a feeling we might be returning to it later in the game.

      I liked Alola in original SuMo, but making a second set with it was a mistake. I realised just how small the place actually is.

    4. Blue Blood

      @Soniman Alola was incredibly small and linear, with no chance to really explore. Everywhere in the region feels like it's part of a road leading you from A to B, and the very few areas there weren't felt like they were rather pointless. It was poorly paced by way of the story progression and the player being rail roaded, but the way that it was segregated into islands meant that there was such a small area available to progress through. I honestly think it was a very poorly conceived idea.

      As for story... What even was it? It presented itself like it was a bit of a change and rather, but it was predictable and had no real involvement from the player. You just existed, and other characters played out the story around you, pretending that you were involved in it. The Ultra Beasts were the dullest idea because they weren't the villains or any real danger. It was so boring. I'd much rather a less involved plot (basically every other game) than one that sucks. 

  22. The dog that I'm looking after and look after regularly had a horrible seizure this morning. He's known to be epileptic, but I've never seen him have an episode before. Absolutely heartbreaking. He's doing alright now, but has zero energy.

      Sorry to hear that man. My girlfriends dog has the same problem, really tears you apart seeing it happen. He'll need to rest it off for a good while.

  23. It's confusion, not salt . The mods don't just provide stat boosts - they're hindrances as much as anything. I just don't get what your accomplishment here is supposed to be. Sounds like you're missing out on a lot of the fun by choosing to ignore part of the game.
  24. Congratulations. You successfully gated off a significant portion of the game for absolutely no reason. The mods don't make the game explicitly easier like some kind of handicap, they just let you tailor the vehicles a bit more to your own liking. I really don't get why you chose to do that our why you've been talking about it throughout this thread as some kind of accomplishment.
