  1. Isabelle, what are you doing with that Death's Scythe. Please put it down.

      Remember when Villager was the scary meme fighter?

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (December 7th)

    I commend Nintendo for getting the least hype-intensive and hype-setting fighter by virtue of being from Animal Crossing smack dab in the middle of the marketing push, so hype can be properly settled in at the beginning stages of marketing, and near the end near release date.

    Mega Man

    The Double Gears do tweak the gameplay a bit, but not to the degree of it making it Easy Mode and being enforced. My first run of it, I didn’t use the Double Gear at all, just relying on the being patient and observant to get through. In actuality, the two Gears come off as being “Bonus Mode” toggles. Use the Speed Gear, you can progress through the area faster and get some goodies like the E-tank, but you have to cognizant of how fast things are moving so you can take full advantage of it. Use the Power Gear, you can mow through obstacles...that you could already do so with your normal kit. Some things are still invincible against the Power Gear, so you still have to know what you’re doing and not go in guns blazing. If you know what you’re doing, abuse it and go all in. The Robot Master weapons even have a Super Attack in Power Gear to let you have fun in it. The Two Gears are a fun tweak to the system, that doesn’t patronize the player in using to them to make the game Super Easy Mode. Clear design to me.
  4. After all these years, Sonic 2 Special Stage is still such a banger song.

  5. Hi, I'm an outsider to Megaman for the most part.


    The Megaman 11 demo is really fucking good. Welcome back, Blue Bomber.

    Mega Man

    Guess what's up? As someone who's not that invested into Megaman, and even couldn't really get into the original Megamans...Damn, I'm impressed. Platforming's tight, the Double Gear system aids in the gameplay smoothly, the animation is super crisp and has that Megaman charm to it, the enemies have that quirky element to them (fucking anti-Eddies), it's all here. It really, genuinely, feels like the evolution of Megaman people have been waiting for, which is strange to say speaking as an outsider. Gonna get this at launch no doubt.
  7. SEGA of today is not just a video game software maker, it has other enterprises in Japan that they focus on via the SEGA Sammy conglomerate. 

    Outsourcing the IPs to other developers makes sense from that lens, viewing the video game market as "simply" another enterprise and basing decisions on that perspective. At least they're outsourcing the stuff to studios with proven backgrounds.

    The General 'Murican Politics Thread

    On that note, Trump has mentioned he has no intention of deliver parting words to McCain, thinking that McCain had a vendetta against him and just wanted McCain to give up the Senate seat. If he sticks to that and doesn't have solemn remarks for McCain, that could further contribute to the schism the GOP currently faces. You can bet whoever will replace McCain will be constantly reminded that Trump hated the former seat holder, and if he/she doesn't at least attempt to emulate McCain's methods, that will cause reverberations in the Arizona political landscape. Arizona is steadily becoming further blue. The last thing the GOP needs is McCain's successor for his term metaphorically flipping off his grave in the process and worsen things for them.

    John McCain concluded treatment for his brain cancer yesterday, and has passed away today. He was 81.
  10. Tiki has come back in Fire Emblem in such a big way recently that I'm hoping this culminates to her being in Smash.

  13. Just realize that since the Switch is not region locked, westerners will get their chance to play the first two Fire Emblems as they roll out the Famicom games, and the next three Fire Emblems as they move on to the Super Famicom library.


    I know I'll be getting those.

  14. I can't even with Sakurai at this point.

    The site's been updated with item pages and such, and Sakurai tweeted a picture he particularly liked. .... After that "red eye" comment, I can't even anymore.

    The concept of Dracula became public domain in 1962, meaning anyone can take inspiration from it without running foul of copyright and royalties. As such, any Dracula that derives from the original Dracula, is itself an original Dracula. Same goes for the Dracula in Castlevania. It's an original character that takes inspiration from the original Dracula, but is still originally a video game character.
  17. Geology rocks, but geography is where it's at.

    1. SupahBerry


      And Geometry is what it looks like.

    2. VEDJ-F


      Geography is a lot more than just locations, it's as much about the very function of the Earth itself.

  18. Who told King K. Rool he could bring an actual musket gun with him to Smash Bros.

    1. Adamabba


      He's a king, he doesnt have people telling him what to do

      Because it's a oversized cartoon gun that's prone to malfuntions?

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (December 7th)

    With Dark Samus being promoted, Knuckles being an AT, and with him nowhere in sight for two presentations, we all know that Shadow is all but confirmed at this point. But the big thing is, Sakurai and co. also know that we know that Shadow is all but confirmed at this point. Revealing only Shadow in a specific trailer, as 3rd Parties would be, would be an underwhelming revelation, something we knew was coming anyway, fan and developer alike. Basically what I'm saying is I have the strangest feeling that Eggman is about to drop in as well. The environment seems to be just right for it.
  20. Guys.


    Richter Belmont of all characters is getting an Amiibo.


    What the fuck.

      Shade Vortex

      Pretty sure they confirmed ALL the Smash Bros. characters will get amiibo, including Daisy, Chrom, Dark Samus and Simon.

    4. TCB


      There's no issue.

      Robin is saying we now live in a world where we will have a collectable toys-to-life figure of a Castlevania character done by Nintendo.

      This timeline I swear just crazy man

    5. Blue Wisps

      Dark Samus Amiibo?

      Hell yeah.

    I'm no Namco buff, but there's more songs to this than just from Galaga, right? And just to add onto the Sonic composers, Yusuke Takahama worked on the soundtrack for Sonic Colors DS and the second Mario & Sonic.
  22. You now remember that the Nicktoon Catscratch existed.

    1. Ferno


      before it came out i really did believe nickelodeon's hype that it'd be the next great nicktoon and would probably get like 6 seasons or more, etc. the actual show was just ok. I liked it but it wasn't something on the level of rocko's modern life, rugrats, or spongebob. ironically looking back, as it came out in 2005, it really did feel like the last good nicktoon of the classic era before the well dried up and Nick soley relied on just Spongebob for years.

    2. TCB


      You now remember that this existed.

      @TCB also known as "watch my chops"

  23. It's called Nickelodeon Kart Racers, so the characters might not be just from the Nicktoons branding. Very well possible other non-toon franchises can get in it. That said, could be cute to see some retro cartoons be revived for this. Sign me up for some Rocko, Angry Beavers, Kablam, and Doug (Does Nick still have some creative hold on it?) racers.
  24. So should I be expecting an Animal Crossing remix from Hideki Naganuma at this point, or what.

  25. Credit where its due, they had to find a way for people to turn heads for new F-Zero content in Smash, and they found it.

    1. SupahBerry


      Smash 4's F-0 rep was so offensive, so this is an instant improvement.
