  1. OK KO is absolutely lovely so this is amazing

  2. Tekken 7 broke 4 Million copies!

  3. The "battery upgrade" for the regular Switch is great, but I still wish there were more colors available for the thing

    I guess that's joycons are for, but still, the dock and Switch pad itself could use some color/style, too, I feel.

    1. Thigolf


      I'd love the Switch Lite Pokemon Colors on a normal Switch, but I dunno if they'd do that.

      I guess you could always paint the console yourself (and I have seen some awesome fan paint jobs on Gamecubes, Wiis, DSes, etc. so I don’t see why the Switch couldn’t work) but idk how you’d do that.

      I wouldn't mind a proper Namco vs. Capcom fighting game though. Use the same coding structure of SFXT, remove the gems, implement rules more similar to MvC and boom, there you go.

    2. KHCast


      I personally want a Square Enix vs Capcom first, but this would be neat 

  5. Ohshit Partymode in TSR on steam

      i think that's the ability to allow your friends to play with you online when you're in non friends lobby 

    4. Thigolf


      Exactly that.


  6. I'm just glad something Super Monkey Ball is happening on consoles

    1. Strickerx5


      I don’t think anyone isn’t happy about the series itself returning.

    2. Menace2Society


      Yeah, it’s great to see the franchise make a comeback. Just wish it made its return in a better way.

  7. I still love how Sega aged down the Super Monkey Ball cast, so to make sure Baby was still, well, there, they made him a time traveller

    It's some dumb bs and I love it

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      The cast have ages? I thought that Baby always come from the future even in his first appearance.

    2. Thigolf


      Woops, you're right. I once read that in a gaming magazine and believed it since, well, official publication, and the rest of the cast certainly look younger with the modern artstyle, which is also the time they introduced the whole futuristic suit for Baby.

      Welp, disregard, then.

      I just read up on the Monkey Ball wikia, and more I'm not actually sure. I didn't think he appeared until the second game, but he's in the first too.

      Either way, they make it easy more obvious that's he's from the future in Banana Blitz onwards (but surely he can't be far that far ahead?). The redesigns and cel shading in that game are a vast improvement over what came before imo. They really capture the spirit of the series.

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Banana Blitz was great. A bit on the easy side, but still a really good Super Monkey Ball. I'll be looking forward to this.

    2. Shiroi


      Was hoping for a new title but hey, I enjoyed this one so I'm looking forward to it too ^^

    3. Soniman


      I thought BB was the one people didn't like cuz Wii controls 

    4. Blue Blood
    5. Dejimon11


      Yeah I remember back in the day everybody hated it or didn’t like it as much. I’m surprised that they didn’t just do the first 2 games instead.

    6. Mad Convoy

      Mad Convoy

      Ooh, a remake I can look forward to for once!

      Banana Blitz has a very special place in my heart since it was the first Wii game (besides Wii Sports, anyway) I ever had. It’s far from perfect but still ridiculously fun. I hope the remake includes fixes for the minigames that kinda sucked while keeping what made the good minigames so enjoyable. Though if nothing else, should things at least not get worse quality wise compared to the original, it’ll be awesome to have a Banana Blitz as a fixture of social gatherings again. And thanks to the Switch, I’m not just limited to bringing it to homes of people who have a Wii.

    7. Shiroi


      @Soniman Aside from having issues with boss fights, I found the controls just fine from what I remember.

      I got quite used to using motion controls for Monkey Ball since I owned a couple of the mobile versions also.

    8. Thigolf
    9. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Lol. The reasoning is probably simple: BB featured the redesigned characters and new artstyle, which doesn't need much modification beyond upping the resolution. Remaking any of the other games would be more work.

      The motion controls are probably going to be improved simply by virtue of today's technology being vastly improved over launch Wii titles.

  8. Life is scary

  9. I'm kinda fascinated how... okay Detective Pikachu did? Like, the franchise is still well known, sells millions, the absurd GO Hype wasn't that long ago, and Ryan Reynolds has been an absolute audience darling since Deadpool, yet the movie just did...fine. It just strikes me as odd.

    1. SupahBerry


      It has a higher RT rating then three live action Disney remakes in a row.


      I see it a success in my book.

      There just seems to be a trend downwards for cinema in general outside of the Marvel stuff. Even TS4 is apparently feeling the pinch. 

    3. KHCast


      Maybe the stigma of “video game film” just seeped into society to the point people didn’t wanna risk wasting money 

    4. Red


      Endgame happened.

    5. Polkadi~☆


      It helped that it looked like a fun movie too. My family were into it, Detective Pikachu wears the fun of it on it’s sleeve.

      I do echo on how Marvel is sweeping up cinema, even if I’m contributing towards the issue. To be honest, not much is catching my interest in cinema as a fun film to watch, outside of things like Detective Pikachu and John Wick (which is a damn solid trilogy).

    6. Nix


      The movie didn't really keep its momentum going after the positive reception to the first trailer tbh.

      Being sandwiched by Endgame and Aladdin probably didn't help much either,

    7. Polkadi~☆


      Oh, the movie only did okay? Endgame is the reason, I can tell you now; that movie dominated cinema for a while.

      Funny, it was the opposite in Japan. Like, Endgame was still big, but Detective Pikachu was bigger.

    8. Dejimon11


      Yeah a lot of movies just weren’t doing super hot this year.  Shazam, Godzilla, Lego movie 2 etc

  10. Seriously though, Gamefreak is in dire need for more employees. Being at roughly 140 employees, being split on multiple projects, working on HD RPG games people expect  tons and tons of content from, is just insane.

  11. I really love how the Sword/Shield Switch Lite looks and I want it kinda bad

    ...but I want a Switch I can play with friends, too


    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      There was a time when I would have bought one top have alongside my regular Switch (I have a BW DSi and XY 3DSXL), but I've got a lot more sense these days. It does look really good though 

    2. Ferno


      I wonder if account sharing (one account for multiple systems) will be a thing when the Lites come out? Realistically I doubt Nintendo would go for it.

  12. Think we're gonna see the Sonic movie Redesign at Comic Con?

    1. DreamSaturn


      Maybe, possibly.

    2. TheOcelot
    3. SupahBerry


      We know for a while the film is Paramont's charge and not really SEGA, so should former be present, depending on the capacity, we might get a peek.

      SEGA haven't mentioned anything too major, right?

  13. Sega's various Twitteraccounts reminiscing about old IPs with no new entries in years being flooded by people pointing that fact out is kinda funny

  14. https://www.resetera.com/threads/nintendo-is-updating-the-original-switch-with-a-new-cpu-and-storage.128338/

    There it is..?

    1. SupahBerry


      Improved online to go with it or this means nothing

  15. Why isn't the Dragon Quest Switch coming over, Nintendo

    Why are you doing this to me

  16. I want a Swiiiitch

    but I want a Pro one

    but that doesn't come out until next year at the earliest 




    1. Teoskaven


      Clearly the SEGA franchise everyone was waiting to get a new installment.

    2. Tracker_TD


      I mean, yeah

      Super Monkey Ball is awesome 

    3. Thigolf


      Are you badmouthing Super Monkey Ball

    4. Teoskaven


      Nah, and to be fair, it's been a while sine SMB has recieved a title on major consoles.

    5. Wraith



      Don't give me hope

    6. Tracker_TD


      It's definitely imminent - the game was also trademarked in Japan a couple of months ago (the JP title is "Tabegoro! Super Monkey Ball", so basically "Ripe! Super Monkey Ball" 

    7. Wraith


      I can believe another one is coming but most of the new ones are really bad so I'm trying not to get my hopes up


      But its also been a while so maybe they can turn out something good...

    8. Strickerx5


      ... You have my attention... but you’re not getting my hope yet.

    9. Ryannumber1gamer


      Don’t do that

      Don't give me hope

      The comments lol

    1. QuantumEdge


      I am so down with this.  As long as it captures the energy and visuals of the game then it'll be a winner.

    3. Dejimon11


      Ok yeah this is the most successful indie game out there now.

    That's so adorable, I can't

    1. NegaMetallix



      But, wait. Wouldn't that mean all those discarded Poke Balls have actually been reusable this whole time?

      ...Man, Pokémon Trainers are lazy!

      That's a cute and useful ability to have!

    In which Sonic's social media actually acknowledges TSR existing

    1. KHCast


      Man imagine if when they focused on the Orca, it popped into a Kart, and they announced Orca as a dlc character through this lol

    2. Vertical Snoop [D.K.]

      Vertical Snoop [D.K.]

      That's more attention and support than the devs are ever going to give it post-release.

      But I guess when you're having your ass handed to you by a bandicoot 4 times over, you have no choice but to bring out the big guns.

    3. Tracker_TD


      this doesn't make me want to buy TSR, this makes me confused

      dodonpa has a dream - everything becomes a virtual boy game for one seizurerrific second - Sonic's car becomes his SA2 DLC car a split second, then a chilli dog - a dramatic orca closeup - suddenly Sonic warps to green hill zone with no cars - explosion


    4. Dr. Detective Mike

      Dr. Detective Mike

      I don't know if I believe they actually care if Crash is doing better or not. It doesn't seem like they care about competing with other games, ever. They released Forces like a week or so after Mario Odyssey and this game about a month before CTR. 

      I dunno. I truly am starting to think they don't give a shit. 

  22. I love cake/cream/whatever mon

  23. Very few things amuse me more than Mickey going "Yeah, ha, you could get killed! Haha! Haha!" in Roger Rabbit

  24. Man, the Sonic/Shadow level in SA2 are so much fun

    Why is there so much... everything else in this game

    1. Polkadi~☆


      Hey, don't discriminate against the Chao Garden.


      but i totally agree with this status, the mech stages are arse, but i love the sonic/shadow stages

    2. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      The Sonic and Shadow stages are so good. There was a time when people composing about them being too linear. Then we got Heroes, Shadow and 06...

    3. Semi-colon e

      Semi-colon e

      Sonic's levels are awesome. Shadow's are much weaker, besides the first two. Sky Rail is over before you know it and has level design that feels unfinished while Final Chase is the same gimmick over and over.

    4. Thigolf


      The current state of 3D Sonic is kinda sad when one of my thoughts while playing the game was "Wow, the level design has turns/I have to move my stick".

      The fact that I had to use my control stick in other ways than holding it in a single direction caught my attention. Think about it.

    5. Tornado


      Knuckles'/Rouge's stages would be fine if the radar wasn't shit, seemingly just to pad the length of them. The controls are too sensitive, but the camera isn't even that uncooperative.


      The mech levels were always impossibly clunky, though. Near no feedback given to the player when you take damage, and not enough given for when you are giving damage.

    6. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      The treasure hunting stages are, IMO, really strong for the most part. When the levels are small (like Dry Lagoon) or huge and open (like Meteor Herd), they're fun to navigate. It's when the levels become labyrinthine and confusing with a bunch of interconnected routes making it difficult to actually go from A to B in a direct fashion (Death Chamber and Aquatic Mine) that they really begin to stink. The radar doesn't help things either, of course. They're workable and could be made really enjoyable. SA1 probably had the right approach with regards to the levels being shared between Knuckles and Sonic.

      Mech stages were way too clunky in SA2. I don't know if they really have anything over Gammas stages in SA1. They're slow and tedious, and any slight error is punished way too harshly.

      (But Cosmic Wall is still one of the best pieces of level music in the series)

    7. Thigolf


      The small Treasure hunting stages (aka the first one of Knuckles and Rouge) are fine, but man, even Pumpkin Hill is kinda grating for me already, and stages like Meteor Herd or Mad Space I can't navigate for shit. I'm totally lost in them. 

    8. Wraith


      The layouts of the treasure hunting stages would be cool with more shortcuts between points of interest. I prefer them to the SA1 version

    9. Badnik Zero

      Badnik Zero

      @Blue Blood The one thing Gamma does better for sure is step faster and  have wheels. He accelerates on downhills like a Sonic character, which can add speed, and the levels are set to a timer which gives urgency. Loss of the timer turns these levels into a big sprawling mess that just plods on.

    10. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      @Badnik Zero Agreed. Everything about Gammas stages felt more at home in Sonic than the SA2 mech stages.

    11. Milo


      Eh, I'm going to be the lone ranger and think that even the Sonic/Shadow levels in that game are pretty mediocre (excluding the GHZ remake).

      I mean, they're not treasure hunting or mech shooting, but all of the levels feel like they were built in a above-average level editor that accounted for little else than speedrunning and rail-grinding.

      When people talk about subsequent 3D Sonics (traditional and Boost) being more linear/automated than SA2...I guess that's true, but it's not something I'd celebrate. SA2 set that standard to begin with.
