  1. Everything about BotW sounds super duper cool, but like, it would just be perfect if it turns out to have like the best final boss ever.  That's what I need in my life.

    1. Dejimon11


      Giant Ganon. 3 phases/3 hits and its dead. Nintendo's typical rule of 3

    2. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      It's gonna be another demise fight, and there will be nothing we can do about it :U

    3. Dejimon11


      Wasn't the demise fight good tho?

    4. Gregzilla


      the demise fight was a good setpiece, but it was hurt by the fact that he was such a lame last minute villain, and also that it was in skyward sword

    5. Ratcicle King

      It'll be a giant floating head with giant floating hands

      3 hits.

      Wasn't the Demise fight just the TP Ganondorf fight with SSJ3 hair and Akuma's nose?

      Hell, you could even use the same fishing rod & net distraction technique on them.

      I want it to be a very intense and reflex reliant fight, but I'm not sure if the battle system we've seen so far can handle that kind of thing. If they get the atmosphere right and it's not too gimmicky I won't have much to complain about though.

    9. Gregzilla


      I crave a good challenge, but as far as Zelda goes I think atmosphere is the thing I value most in the final bosses.  That's why OoT's is still my favorite in the series, even though some of the later games improved the combat and challenge.

      Considering BotW's scope and ambition I'm really hoping for a grand encounter at the end, something truly exciting.

  2. they should just cancel sonic and bring back sparkster

      Chili Dawg

      I need that game in my rectum

  5. It's kind of a weird thought considering how huge a franchise it is, but out of all the Zelda games, ALBW and Majora are the only ones I truly LOVE.

    1. Gregzilla


      I enjoy OoT and WW from time to time, and some of the 2D ones, but ALBW and Majora are still the only ones that immediately skyrocket to potential "best games ever" territory for me.

    2. Ferno


      Planning on getting Majora right after I beat OoT3D. Maybe sooner actually since I fear it, and other 3DS games may start to become scarce on store shelves once they start making room for Switch games.

    3. Gregzilla


      go for it yo.  Majora still has its flaws but as an overall experience it's really something special.  I consider that the pinnacle of the series' more intangible qualities, whereas ALBW is the pinnacle of the series from a pure game design standpoint.

    4. Ferno


      ALBW was the first Zelda that I beat and it was so good that it dragged me into the series and made me a fan after years of trying and failing to get into it before hand by buying the odd Zelda game here and there but never beating it.

  6. Just a heads up that Amazon and GameStop have run out of Zelda BotW preorders for the Switch version.  If you haven't, might wanna consider checking other stores and reserving it.

    1. Nepenthe


      Meanwhile I'm sitting here with my Wii U version all preordered and ready to go.

    2. Soniman


      I dont think preordering of the wii U version is even needed tbh lol

    3. Nepenthe


      Games like Smash and Splatoon are regularly hard to find physical, and you think no one's eyeing the best Zelda ever? I'm taking no chances. You got me fucked up if you think I'm not playing it on the 3rd, preferably a little after midnight.

    4. Soniman


      Youre right, better safe then sorry lmao

    5. Josh


      Look at these Wii U scrubs

    6. Nepenthe


      Yeah, the Wii U scrubs who had features taken away from their version because the Switch scrubs would've complained about lack of parity. D<


      I'm still salty we lost Gamepad features.


    7. Josh


      I personally wouldn't have cared and was gonna play it with the pro controller on the Wii U anyway so lol. Less options sucks though I guess.

    8. Soniman


      wait what, then whats the gamepad used for??

    9. Nepenthe


      Nothing as far as we know. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    10. Gregzilla
    11. Nepenthe


      I'm about 99% sure map features are gone too (which is the stuff I wanted). I think it's just a secondary screen for Off-TV play now.

    12. Josh


      Aonuma confirmed that the map is indeed gone. The gamepad is just a black screen during gameplay


    13. Soniman


      that sounds fucking awful?????? Not even off tv play???????

    14. Josh


      I think Off Tv Play is still in but that's as far as it goes.

    15. Soniman


      as the wii u-s swan somg thats a pretty tragic way to treat its defining feauture.

      i have no idea what the point in removing the map though, you actively choose to make things less convienient for players, thanks?

    16. Josh


      to be honest streaming to both screens at the same time was probably straining the game too much. The framerate on Wii U is already pretty dodgy as is.

  7. Every Nintendo console has only had one Mario Kart, so I'm hoping MK8 Deluxe doesn't count and Switch still gets MK9 at some point.

    1. Dejimon11


      So when we get MK9 what do you want to see in it?

    2. Gregzilla


      Honestly when it comes to Mario Kart I don't really need anything revolutionary, just a cool batch of new tracks and a good battle mode from the get-go.

      Though if I were to ask for a big change, I'd say definitely add a mission mode like MKDS had, it was a lot of fun and I'm bummed they never did it again.

    3. SenEDtor Missile

      SenEDtor Missile

      What about Mario Kart Triple Dash, where you can play as normal single character kart or Double Dash kart online and offline?

    4. Gregzilla


      I'd honestly love having the Double Dash karts as an optional mode

    5. Dejimon11


      Yeah the double dash mode was so fun. But agree on the mission mode stuff just a fun distraction for those who are alone and don't want to play online.. I also want a better character roster so no more babies or alternate versions of characters(except Dry Bowser). There are plenty of characters they can use like Pauline, Captain Syrup, E.Gadd and Petty Piranha. Idk

    6. Teoskaven


      Considering all factors, at this point it's time to drop the name and recall it Smash Bros. Kart or something.

    7. Dejimon11


      Can we please come up with a better name than smash kart? 

    8. SenEDtor Missile

      SenEDtor Missile

      Mario Kart Smashdown?

    9. JezMM


      Half the appeal of Mario Kart is having lots of new aesthetics and locations, they get pretty creative with them.  Turn it into Smash Kart and every track suddenly becomes a racing version of locations we've already seen in order to represent the franchise they came from, no thanks, keep the extra Nintendo characters as guests.

      I just really don't want Mario Kart to become a Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed situation where less than a quarter of the game is related to the titular character personally

    10. VEDJ-F


      To be fair to Sonic & SEGA, it's supposed to be a SEGA game, not a Sonic game. They only gave extra emphasis to Sonic because the higher-ups wanted it there to try and sell it better. 

    11. KHCast


      Why not have new aesthetics and locations that are merely based on other franchises? It's not like that'd be impossible since they create new locations for Mario all the time 

    12. Marcello


      I'd rather they just continuously update Mario Kart 8.

    13. Gregzilla


      If they just kept making DLC tracks for MK8 I'd honestly be okay with that for a while.  Hell if they're planning any more DLC for MK8 Deluxe then I might get it.

    14. VEDJ-F


      can't wait for the next dlc character gold gold daisy

    15. Strickerx5


      Personally hoping they continue where they left off with the DLC and keep adding in other Nintendo characters. If Sakurai doesn't want to make another Smash then don't force it. A Smash Kart could be just as grand.

    16. Dejimon11


      because it's Daisy I'll let it slide

    17. JezMM


      Even if they did make new locations (which is kind of tricky to do... I mean if they make a "brand new" futuristic looking city level it is only the very small details that would make the difference between it being a "Mario" future city, a "Splatoon" future city or an "F-Zero" future city, etc), I still don't want it to be the case where we only get 1 new Mario track per cup because the rest is all filled up with other franchise representation.

    18. Strickerx5


      I don't know Jez. Is see your point there but I have to ask how many more courses the Mario series has left in it at this point. I mean, you said it yourself. It's already a tricky thing to do with a couple of different franchises. We've been at the point where half the game is already made up of old tracks for years. Not to mention the similarities new tracks often share with old ones.

      I think it'd be a nice break to have different locals from completely different franchises for a game.

    19. JezMM


      Mario Kart 8 was full of new ideas though?  The vast majority of tracks were new ideas (water park, airport, nightclub, oriental) or significant twists on classic tropes (snowy course set at an oil drilling outpost, desert course with skeletal elements, san francisco-inspired city).  I have full confidence in Nintendo to keep up the good ideas, there is not a finite amount.

      Also saying "half the game is old tracks" is kind of a silly point considering before they began doing that there weren't 16 new tracks in their place.  Especially considering Mario Kart 8 did some major redesign work on some of the older tracks, particularly the GBA ones.

      I felt MK8 had the freshest set of courses to date, even the old tracks felt "new" again with a few exceptions (namely the MK7 tracks which obviously recieved the least modifications).

    20. Strickerx5


      I can't say I feel the same. Outside of the gravity gimmick, a lot of MK8s track felt like they were retreading old ground to me. As if they took past set pieces, put them all in a blender, and divided the output into 16 tracks. I mean you always have your downhill snow track, Luigi's Mansion track, desert track (which are rarely ever good), beach track, waterfall track, jungle track, Bowser lava castle track, ect. Sure they get a new coat of paint but it's all just starting to blur together. Like if they were all given the same graphical treatment I wouldn't be able to distinguish half of them apart.

      I'm not saying I don't enjoy the spins this series takes on the Mario world (far from it), I'm just saying I'd like to see the team try something new. Also, I don't think the series would lose anything as a result. I mean, outside of a couple of Toads laid around the area, what is Sunshine Airport's real connection to the series? It could have easily been replaced with a ship hangar from Metroid.

      Yeah, that one point I made about the old tracks was a bit off. I think what I meant was that it reinforced how much reference they took from the past to make the newer stages but it's weak one all together.

      I guess what I'm trying to say is that I believe the series can afford a shift like that for one title. We've seen it work with 8 so why go back with 9? Hell, we already see people excited that the Inklings got in for the Switch port. Am I the only one who wants to see Mario, Link, Kirby (preferably on a warp star), and Samus go at it in kart form? It feels like the natural evolution especially when we know these characters can work in the same setting thanks to Smash. Of course, I wouldn't hold it against Nintendo if they decided to keep it purely Mario again next time and I'm sure we'll get a few new tracks that will become instant classics... but I can't help but feel that the series would be limiting itself.

    21. JezMM


      Thing is all those tropes will still be those tropes if they're coming from a different series.  Zelda, Metroid and Kirby all have forests, deserts and temples too.  And if they want to make them recognisable as coming from those franchises they WILL have to draw from existing examples of those tropes.  Will the soundtrack end up as nothing but remixes too?  People would expect no less right?  Also there's other things like... do we add a whole bunch of items from the franchises too or do we just keep the items Mario-related?

      A one-off would be fine but I just feel it's a thing you don't really go back from UNLESS they market it as a distinct one-time spin-off with the title and all.  But even then, if it's super popular they'd prolly just continue that.

      I guess they're kind of already going that way though by putting the guest characters on the box art for MK8 deluxe.  We'll see.

  8. Anyone know which Katamari games are considered the best? I only have the first one and I want another. 

    1. A Match in Oil Ocean Zone

      A Match in Oil Ocean Zone

      I adore We Love Katamari and I think it's the most respected? not super sure

      also your new video was great ok bye

    2. Gregzilla
    3. King Koopone

      King Koopone

      Err... We Love Katamari is considered by others to be the best one because after that the creator didn't have input on the games and complaints on later games were recycled stages and nothing new. I want to get into the series however my options are limited to Me and My Katamari (control issues), Beautiful Katamari (broken up as DLC, both items and stages) and Katamari Forever (really hard to find but it contained the most stages of the games). All quite hard to find now that I think about it.

      Lucky that you got Katamari 1, shame it was skipped an European release and was a big loss not to have it.

  9. Perusing the Switch reddit FAQ, and while I knew this wasn't a big focus, I didn't know the Switch literally CAN'T do dual screen gameplay like the Wii U.

    Honestly, I'm happy about this.  Looking up and down between an TV and a tiny tablet was not fun for me, so I'm glad that's being ditched.  I wonder if that means games won't use the touch screen at all though? 

    1. Mando-Whirl-Wind


      Some use it for UI interface. World of Goo uses it for primary gameplay on the go, but can also use a joycon for pointer controls

    2. Gregzilla


      Ah, so some games can use the touch screen in mobile mode?  That's what I was hoping for.  That gives the Switch more versatility, so devs could make games designed to cater to either the console or mobile style.

    3. Speederino: Hero of Hyrule

      Speederino: Hero of Hyrule

      I would have liked it for Zelda, at least. I liked being able to just glance at a dungeon map or switch items without pausing. Small things like that.

    4. Gabe


      This does likely rule out any idea of VC for Wii U games, though. They'll have to be modified ports that dummy out.

      Some Wii U games that don't use the screen outside of Off-TV Play, stats screen, or a duplicate screen like MK8 (which is getting the Deluxe port as we speak) and Tropical Freeze shouldn't have too much trouble getting ports. Others will however range from needing some work (I believe NSMBU and 3D World fall into this category) to likely being outright impossible (Star Fox Zero).

    5. Zaysho


      @Gabe I think 3D World has a handful of levels that do make use of things like the Gamepad's built-in mic and the touchscreen to progress. I can't recall if these levels need to be beaten to open up more of the map or if they're skippable, so I can see that being something of a hurdle to that game getting a port.

      I'm kinda mixed on the lack of a dual-screen mode, mostly because I loved being able to plug my headphones into the Gamepad while being able to play on TV muted at night. I suppose the Switch's screen having overall better resolution than the Gamepad sort of helps with that, but it'd be nice to somehow have it both ways.

    6. Josh


      All those gamepad levels in 3D World were skippable. I know because I skipped them(lol)

      Their gimmicks could be modified or they can be cut from the game outright, Wouldn't impact it much.

    7. Gabe


      @Josh Hence why I said some work would be needed. Nothing too major like you said, but some tweaks would need to be made unless you simply dummied the levels out (and that would be a shame, because some of the levels are among the more unique / cooler levels, like Hands-On Hall --the Japan-themed one--).

      (As for NSMBU, upon further examination, the use of the GamePad seems to only reside with the Boost Mode, which provides for asymmetrical gameplay such as adding platforms for players to use and stunning enemies, a la P2 mode in the Galaxy games. Since it's a separate mode, my assumption is that it could be easily dummied out of a port.)

  10. Finished my Sonic Lost World Kinda Review!  Hope ya like it, and don't take it personally if I happen to scream about how it's not my ideal Sonic

  11. 2 eps into Diamond is Unbreakable.  The wacky color palettes work so much better here since the entire show seems to embrace them and push them further, and the lineart looks more satisfying too.

  13. As hype as I am for Breath of the Wild, my biggest concern is still the open world.  Most open world games these days bore the shit outta me, and while I'm optimistic that it will be fun, I'm also trying to keep my expectations in check in that regard.

    1. Josh


      They seem to let you head straight for the main quest unlike other Open world games that try and force the boring shit on you. I'll give it a chance.

    2. Gregzilla


      I think it'll be good too, from the few videos I've watched.  Games like MGSV have just taught me to immediately be skeptical of large open worlds.
