  1. It's really weird to me how there is so much positive feedback to Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, with many praising that finally breathes a lot of fresh air into the franchise, yet there isn't a tiny bit of footage anywhere, probably because, I assume, WB and/or TT Games don't allow it out there.

    Which begs to question - why?

  2. I kinda hate how stingy I've become. I bought a game that was down from 29.99 to like 8.50, and a couple months later, when I saw the game at 7.50, I thought to myself "Goddammit, why didn't I wait for a couple months?" despite it being just... one buck.

    Like, part of me is glad that I've become more mindful how I use my money, I just wish it wasn't to that extent.

      That's not stingy.

       

      That's being grown up.

      Us Brits really love Crash.

      So much so that 3 Crash games were made round here (Bash, Wrath of Cortex & Twinsanity)

      versus the...*counts internally* SIX Sonic games made here (seven if you count Lego Dimensions)

      But is the game fun? I haven't bought it and heard bad things.

  4. I hope one of the presents the Sonic franchise gets this year from Sega is "a budget"

    C'mon Nintendo/Sega, do it you cowards

  6. Kazuya should be in Smash with this as his victory animation

  7. It just occured to me: Sakurai wasn't the one proposing Banjo, Nintendo made all the Smash DLC picks, or at least proposed them all. THEY pushed for Banjo. It makes the selection even more fascinating. They could've gone for anyone, but opted for their good old bear friend.

      It was probably the easiest option to build goodwill with as well as one with the least hassle since Microsoft were already open to letting them use him apparently. It also as well was probably a good starting point on a serious long running partnership, and secured Nintendo the opportunity to get banjo games back on their platform, so I can definitely see this being pushed by Nintendo for marketing purposes

      The ballot results influenced as well, and while it was still voting period, Phil Spencer expressed approval and happiness for people voting Banjo. It's clear Nintendo had to spot this from distance.

      It's really weird, putting Banjo in just feels like a 100% "This is for you" gift to Smash players with no corporate ulterior motive behind it, despite there being obvious business benefits to it. Maybe that's just what Banjo does to me, heh.

      I also like how the remake has more new content than the new game.

  9. I'm eager to see the CTR sales, man.

  10. Been playing TMNT: Rescue Palooza today and had an absolute blast. It's a fangame beat em up paying homage to the 80s show and games with a whopping 17 stages and an astonishing 60 (yes, Sixty!) playable characters - it's pretty darn well made, polished and just good time. I wholeheartedly recommend it.

  11. Mortal Kombat being such a high selling franchise is so weird to me, since over here in Germany, the games were outright banned for years.

    So basically, I lived in a bubble where noone even really knew what the heck a Mortal Kombat was pre-internet, so when I found out about the series and dived into it a little deeper, I was like "Holy shit, it sold HOW many?"

      Well remember, MK1 was the first game ever to show lots of blood and gore. Controversy means free advertising.

  12. I'm really stoked to see the next Smash Bros Ultimate characters... despite the announcement still being months and months away and the fact that the last one barely happened a week ago.

    1. SupahBerry

      SupahBerry

      Yeah, the Hero and Banjo can help tide us over, but I for can barely stand the tension from not know who are the last two fighters. I've long kept myself open minded on who gets in, the only thing that can stop a fighter from getting in is if another one gets in first.

      Yet I feel so doubtful because of how many dream fighters I'd want to get in, knowing I'll never actually see all of them get in. And I've long since let go of even the slightest chance they'll be more after that.

       

      I just want them to say who the last two fighters are and get it over with.

      @RedFox99 The Just Dance games were the ONLY games released on the Wii after, like, 2013.

  14. TSR dropping down to 75% of its launch price in the consoles' stores after a mere month

    The Crash fear is real

      Pretty much every US digital store, as far as I can tell.

  15. You know, obviously Heihachi is the top contender when people discuss Tekken characters in Smash, but what if we got Kazuya or Jin and they'd actually be able to transform into their Devil forms, either triggered by something or by will (down B), with each of the forms having advantages and disadvantages?

    1. Wraith

      Wraith

      what if we got asuka and she did the spinny kick thing and ruined my rank like in the actual game

    2. KHCast

      KHCast

      I don’t know which one I’d want more for the next fighting game rep: Soul Calibur or Tekken. Like I’ve dabbled in each series, but am not like super familiar with either. 

  16. Now that the heavily rumored/basically confirmed Hero and the also heavily rumored Banjo Kazooie are in Smash, the Ultimate Discussion is finally getting interesting again. I kinda missed it.

    1. Marcello

      Marcello

      Now it'll just be people suggesting garbage like Jibanyan or Crash.

    2. KHCast

      KHCast

      Jibanyan I agree 

      Crash though? I see no reason he’d be a garbage choice given his influence in gaming. He is a mascot for an entire era of PS1 games. Definitely can see him with near as positive reactions as banjo tbh.

    3. Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

      Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

      Especially considering how well on the Switch Crash sold too.

  17. Why the heck would you ask Iizuka, head of a platforming series, about eSports

    That'd be like someone going to the producer of DOOM and asking if a farming simulator is on the table

    1. Corviknight

      Corviknight

      I mean there is that Puyo Esports thing going on but I don't think they realized they had the wrong guy.

  18. Part of me wishes Sonic would've come to Smash later so he could've gotten one of those dope CGI Trailers

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Sonic getting into Smash back in the days of Brawl was a big thing, cause Sonic was still a juggernaut back then. Nowadays, I just don't think enough people care. SEGA have let the series stagnate for so long with mediocre games and really failed to keep up with the times. If he was new top Smash in Ultimate... I dunno... Would he have been so hotly anticipated?

    2. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      Fair point, actually. Sonic probably would've been long overdue for one part of the fanbase and completely uninteresting for the rest.

      Shame.

    3. Soniman

      Soniman

      Ah yes Sonic in Brawl, hot off the heels of critically acclaimed titles like 06 and Secret Rings 

    4. Wraith

      Smash only gives popular and relevant franchises like fucking megaman and castlevania the red carpet.

    5. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      There were garbage games (but also remember that SatSR was early in the days of Wii Waggle and was the first solo Sonic outing in years - it wasn't recieved badly when it was new). It's not a case of the games being bad - the difference is that people still cared back then. Sonic sold a lot more, and people were at large holding out hope for good games. Even when the end products were games like '06, the hype and media interest was real. Sonic was turning heads back then in a way that didn't happen now. Forces, Lost World, TSR... The coverage and interest is tepid by comparison. 

  19. Heihachi for Smash for the Music alone, please

  20. Now that Cadence of Hyrule is out, what other Indie x Nintendo game would you love to see?

    1. Thigolf

      Shantae x Smash Bros

      Mighty Switch Force x Splatoon?

  21. I kinda wish we'd have gotten one big olympics game by SEGA instead of splitting them into two.

    1. JezMM

      JezMM

      Mario and Sonic and a bunch of humans at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games is a hell of a title

  22. D8t1JFIVUAQxryl.jpg

    I hope this is the sign of more to come.

  23. Of course the dope-ass DQ XI collector's edition Switch is Japan only.

    Not exactly surprised, but considering the DQ Hero is in Smash now and DQ XI S is an exclusive, I hoped Square/Nintendo/Whoever would bite the bullet and try the risk, but I guess not.

    Sigh...

    1. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      At least it's region free so importing is an option albeit an expensive one

    2. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      Too expensive for my wallet, sadly.

    3. SupahBerry

      SupahBerry

      They put Joker in Smash, no PS5R.

      They put Hero in Smash, no XI collector's edition.

       

      The next thing you'll tell me the BK remake is either a phony or an NeXtbox exclusive.

  24. The sheer difference in amount of content between TSR and CTR is staggering
