  1. So Chico wasn’t originally going to die in MGSV: GZ and actually had some badass looking artwork that depicted what he’d have looked like in PP. https://static.wikia.nocookie.net/metalgear/images/3/36/Chico_Concept.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20180412223205

     

    Well damn. Wish they went with this route instead

      wiki links are weird. Here’s a better one 

  2. I find it weird, and kinda underwhelming, that the Patriots AI’s in MGS4 don’t have an actual presence in terms of being characters, like in MGS2. They made such a creepy antagonist with them in that game that was condescending and felt above humanity, so why the fuck did Kojima/Konami decide to go back to making them generic silent computer programs with no actual personalities that act in the background of the story?

      Like the entire series was building up the Patriots with the whole “the Patriots did this things or that thing” shit effectively making them this creepy “man behind the curtain”  group with ultimate power, 4 was meant to be the climatic ending to the battle with them, and 2 revealed their “face” finally, so going back to putting them in the background and just hearing about the Patriots and what they’ve done is kinda boring

      I think they backpedaled due to how at the time MGS2 had been recieved in favor of a set of twists tied instead to 1 and 3 wich were more beloved.

    3. KHCast

      KHCast

      I keep forgetting that at the time MGS2 was so hated. Man, I wish that wasn’t the case, so we could have had a return of AI Colonel 

    4. Teospooker

      It was mostly because of the bait-and-switch reguarding the playable character (i mean, it was one of the many point of social commentary the game had, but to be fair, it can pass as false advertisting since i don't remember spots, the cover or the demo showing at all Raiden and instead making you think it was another full-on Snake game).
      What i find more hilarious is how a game 20 years old scarily predicted what the internet would have become by now with the overflooding of informations, fake news, echo chambers and those who try to keep order with them deemed as bad guys.

  3. Metal Gear spoilers

     Venom Snake being the Big Boss we fight in MG1 on paper sounds clever and like it’s a neat retcon, but when you think about it for a few minutes, it actually doesn’t make sense, and actually feels kinda shoddily done.

    1. KHCast

      KHCast

      Just goes to show even Kojima ain’t perfect when it comes to Metal Gear plots. Half the twists revealed in later metal gear solid stories end up being retcons that are confusing to fit into the overarching plots, especially when it comes to 5, where Kojima was apparently restricted up the ass in what he could do because of Konami

  4. Does anyone else find it weird how MGSV gave us a child Liquid Snake but not the Child version of the Snake that is the icon of the series everyone knows best? 

  5. Just got 3 cloud cards, one being a 9, so the rest of Chain of Memories should be a fucking breeze lol

  6. Continuing on with CoM in a few mins! Aiming to get through around 3-4 more worlds

  7. The Apex Legends season 7 trailer hands down is probably my favorite story trailer so far, not just cause it focuses on Mirage, the best character I should say lol, but because it’s so full of personality and charm on top of a bunch of good action and humor moments 

  8. Potential Age of Calamity Demo incoming 

     

     

     

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Nintendo's Korean social media leaked an announcement about it yesterday too. They quickly deleted it, but GameXplain (and several other outlets) were were able to verify it. 

      Chances are that it's coming soon, and I can't wait.

       

    2. KHCast

      I’m honestly surprised the OG HW never got a demo if this happens tbh (tho not sure if the 3DS version got one)

    3. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      The original HW was more of a side game, I guess? It didn't get the same amount of focus. BotW has basically become a new series to Nintendo at this point.

      And back then I don't think Nintendo were dishing out demos (or test fires) as readily as they seem to be doing with the Switch.

    4. JezMM

      JezMM

      I thought I remembered the 3DS version getting one but I might be mixing up memories of just watching a lot of youtube videos of the 3DS version out of fascinatation with how they managed to port the dang thing down to such a device.

    5. KHCast

      KHCast

      Well they were able to cram Xenoblade Chronicles on the thing

    6. JezMM

      JezMM

      That's true, although 3D Land and Mario Kart 7 had already geared me up for the idea that Wii-quality games could run on it.  Something about a current-gen console game, and one that is entirely about having ridiculous amounts of enemies on-screen at once as a key appeal, was particularly impressive to me (although of course I'm pretty sure even on the New 3DS they only display about half the number of enemies that the console versions do, if that lol).

    7. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      HW can technically run on the original 3DS (albeit poorly) while XC requires the New 3DS. Both games are impressive, HW is especially so.

  9. Apparently Nintendo leaked a demo as it appeared on the eshop earlier before getting taken down? So...keep an eye out for a demo announcement I guess lol
  10. I still don’t think there’d be much harm in porting past Smash Bros games with online compatibility onto the Switch. Lots of other fighter game franchises do it just fine 

    1. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      <--Wants Brawl and Smash 4 stage editor elements added to Ultimate.

    2. Sega DogTagz

      Sega DogTagz

      It would divide what is left of Ultimate's online community. Half the kids would jump to melee and 2 smaller communities is less desirable than 1 big one.

    3. Marcello

      Marcello

      I think you're overestimating Melee there.

    4. KHCast

      KHCast

      @Sega DogTagz Again, other fighting games have done just fine with having multiple entries on one system, or porting older entries to current hardware, I don’t see how Smash would be this special exception to the rule that would harm Nintendo and the, incredibly large, fanbase

    5. JezMM

      JezMM

      To be fair I don't feel like Melee's fans would find Nintendo's quality of online play to be acceptable lol.

      It would be nice to have at least straight ports of the old games for preservation's sake, but I'd want them to include the option to have everything unlocked from the start.  From Melee onwards, Smash isn't really a game where it's that fun to start over on a fresh save and do everything again.

    6. Wraith

      Wraith

      Melee can be played online with rollback netcode via slippi. The Melee community won't give up rollback to play on the switch at this point

    7. KHCast

      I just realized if they do this it will be limited time until March 31st 20xx so nevermind 

  11. playing through re:com now, come watch! :)
  12. CN did a blatant anti-racist/pro lgbt Steven Universe ad, and oh boy I’m NOT reading the comments on that tweet 

  13. Fuck the boss battle in Xenoblade in Agniratha against 

    Spoiler

    Gadolt 

    Every other attack of theirs causes daze which is so fucking cheap 

    1. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      Not sure if you managed to clear the boss, but I only just saw this and figured I'd suggest that some of the Mechons in that region do carry level IV crystals with Daze Resist (specifically the HASTE and MISER bots) so if you're still on that one you can probably farm some gems to craft for the party you're using.

      A problem with Xenoblade 1 in particular I find is that the later stages of the game can be really overwhelming for first time players. They start throwing a lot more enemies with spikes and debuffs (without spoiling too much, there's a unique quest boss tied to one of the characters' skill tree quests in the end game that has a spike that causes instant Daze so absolutely make sure you stock up on Daze and Spike Resists) and I don't find the game actually does a good job of fully explaining these things (it's arguably better than X and 2 in terms of tutorials at least). I lost count of how many times I walked into shit that caused spike damage without realizing it, especially on the Wii version which didn't have indicators at all.

    2. KHCast

      KHCast

      Yeah I beat it. But the boss after is also annoying cause they also summon mechon. I’m just gonna level farm for a bit cause I’m 67 and I hear it’s a lot easier at 70

  14. >Transphobes saying the same shitty joke over and over and expecting a new response 

  15.  

    Fuck, if they actually bring this back, I might get a Xbox Series X (or One if it’s multi-gen)  lol

    1. I Have Berry!

      I Have Berry!

      No better time to jump back in when the Battle Royale's still hot

    Smash Ultimate DLC roster looking on point

      Ah, my favourite fighter

      schoolbag 

    2. KHCast

      Schoolbag was Joker the whole time. He just transforms into the flesh vessel when in Smash 

    3. McGroose

      McGroose

      Beleth?? Seriously?

      ffs Nintendo, I wanted Baphomet

  17. Just a reminder, Steve is in Smash, this isn’t a fever dream 

    1. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      well i just found out sonic spinball is a game that exists, so i guess this is the world we live in now

  18. I beat Celeste! Holy shit that was a difficult journey, but I definitely appreciated my time playing it and finally getting to experience it. It’s a super frustrating game, but also very well made and charming. Definitely got no regrets playing this 

    1. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      Celeste is a Good Game ™

    2. KHCast

      KHCast

      Took me 11 hours to complete and had over 3000 deaths tho, christ hearing people say “for an average playthrough it should take no more than around 6 or so hours” makes me feel bad lol

       

      Also, negatives, I hate the hotel level. That, and the “final boss” of the story I think drags on way too long 

    3. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      I eventually broke down and used some of the accessibility features to finish the game, and I don't regret it.

      I think more games need to have those included

  19. the cloud jumping in Celeste is pretty annoying 

  20. Reaction: Doomslayer gets announced for Mortal Kombat 11

    1. Teospooker

      Teospooker

      Fine by me.

  21. Had a dream the next Smash fighter was revealed at the Game Awards...and was a Golden Axe character lol. And honestly? I’d be into it. If Microsoft got another rep, I think Sega could get another too

    1. I Have Berry!

      I Have Berry!

      Tails and Arle fans on the attack!

  22. Wearing this in my stream today. Or gonna try to lol

  23. Galeem/Dharkon’s mixed theme is the best music to fight on Final Destination with. Facts.

    1. Waveshocker Sigma

      Waveshocker Sigma

      You mean the "Galeem and Dharkon" final battle theme? Yah, it's a damn great theme to fight on FD though.

      But I'd give it second place, because NOTHING beats Brawl's FD theme. Best FD track in the entire series.

  24. It’s crazy how Sora only has like 3 very short voice lines in Halloween Town in KH1 lol

    1. Teospooker

      Teospooker

      The first game had a lot more sections with just written dialogue since the budget was not as high as later entries and the people involved were expensive.

    2. KHCast

      KHCast

      He only really has a few speech bubbles even. Just overall his presence in that world is pretty small outside maybe the opening section
