  1. It's been 30 long years, but western audiences will finally be able experience the debut of our favorite blue-hair swordsman (because DS remakes don't exists)...

    ...All while taking a page outta another thirty-something celebrating Nintendo franchise's book and making it limited time

     

    Oh yeah, also not available for the NES app. Purchase only.

      Nintendo can seriously fuck off with this limited time bullshit

    2. Sonictrainer

      I'm interested in playing this...

      man they're trying to manufacture prestige by limiting availability, but the way i see it, it makes these releases seem more disposable than anything. they're perfectly happy to get their money from it and then throw it away. essentially admitting they don't care about their own product.

  2. Now you back at home can sing along, with my first public YTP. (And my first YTP collab entry at that!) Join us for some Disneyland YTP Collab Fun.

  3. Picture this:  Stage Builder gets an expansion, allowing you to place the Minecraft blocks Steve could make, complete with hazard blocks, cart tracks, changing the biome of the blocks, and even note blocks.

  4. Well I'm happy Duck Hunt can finally retire from being the franchise's resident living punching bag

      maybe I'm getting old, but I don't remember people getting mad about duck hunt getting in Smash. some people definitely did want to see the duck hunt game/characters be incorporated into smash somehow.

      I remember pirahna plant and byleth getting far more of a backlash when they were revealed than duck hunt ever did. I guess steve will be up there with those two.

  5. Well after two years of being taken off digital stores cause of expired licensing rights, RCT3's back with a vengeance

  6. Please also consider lighting a candle in memory of Mario's real first space adventure and first appearance of Wario

    Spoiler

    I wanna let you know that the last game that remembered SML2 exists was, of all games, Paper Mario Sticker Star.

      This was my first Mario game. I wish Nintendo would acknowledge it more.

      Also hoping Bunny Mario comes back some day. Also Tatanga, and maybe make Daisy playable in a platformer, but primarily Bunny Mario.

  7. And thus, the last remaining consumer friendly major game company in the world falls to greed at last. 

     

     

    Bye Bye, vidya geyms!

      When was Nintendo consumer friendly?

    2. PC the Hedgehog

      They did the same thing with the Wii All-Stars rerelease for Mario's previous anniversary. This is just a continuation of their greed.

      Nintendo has been greedy since the NES days, though...

    4. KHCast

      Nah, Nintendo have been part of the AAA world in a lot of ways. We don’t even need to bring up their whole free to play mobile phone games phase

      As people have been saying, Nintendo has been like this for a while. 

      I think it's because so many Nintendo fanboys are so willing to look the other way, that it's easy to forget. I know a lot of Disney fans who are like this: willing to excuse a company's bullcrap because it was a part of their childhood and a big part of their life. (Granted, I think people more are starting to realize Disney's shadiness, but still.)

      "People who buy something no matter what" fanboys aren't the main problem here; it's joe shmo who sees that these games are finally rereleased, and wants to buy them despite any price hikes, limited releases, or upgrades in QoL added to the game. That's where the bulk of the profit lies with these rereleases. And it's something you can't really stop without going up to said joe shmo and making a scene about the capitalistic beast he's feeding by making his otherwise innocuous purchase; because he and a lot of other people could have it a lot better if he didn't.

      I think I get what you're saying: It's moreso the problem of just some people either not not caring or not knowing about whatever marketing or whatever, and just wanting to buy the remakes, and anybody who tries to tell them why that's bad will just look foolish and preachy. And considering "joe shmos" make up the majority you're more likely to be laughed out of the building than making them think about the better alternatives.

      Am I correct? Or am I misinterpeting?

      Basically yeah. It's too small an issue for the individual, for them to be routinely expected to take issue with them with good reason. But it's also too inherent to how the prices for products are raised, the supply is limited, and the product is controlled to not be the main problem, that there becomes no way to directly stop it. Not with a company that is focused around making money above providing a service for the good of everyone, at least.

  8. I wanted to get this three way combo in while I still could

  9. Maybe if the insiders and the reporters that parrot them didn't let everything spiral down into "A new more powerful Switch model launching next year", Nintendo wouldn't have to resort to shooting them down with dabbing grandpas.

  10. Now I don't necessarily agree with the declaration that this means a real direct Friday is off the cards, but I wanna give Nintendo a high five just for being such a troll to those insiders and giving them a much needed comeuppance.

     

     

     

    Now, let's get down.

     

  11. Hopefully this update is worth it in the long run

  12. Another little trinket that lines up with what insiders are claiming on the road to the real deal Direct, which is speculated for this following week. 

     

    Don't lemme down leakers.

      Jesus the comments. 

  13. - The online user experience has been adjusted

    - I don't see the word "rollback" anywhere in that log

      Oh yeah. Having the ability to play all of the game's music in the game is pretty killer... too bad you can't adjust the random frequency of any of the songs.

    2. tailsBOOM!

      tailsBOOM!

      Rollback would be a dream lol

  14. I'd like to say this while the Classic v. Modern thing's still hot.

     

    You know how Nintendo gave Zelda an over-stylized toon look for Wind Waker and next gave it a hyperrealistic brown look for Twilight Princess? The fanbase were at each other's throats over which of the two looks is superior, right? It even got to the point where Brawl had WW Link show up as a fighter, separate from the normal Link who now sported his TP look. Then Nintendo decided to combine the two looks with Skyward Sword, to mixed results, before bettering that styling with BOTW. 

    You think Sonic would be in a better shape to fans' eyes if it reversed the whole separate dimension rule and have be a Classic Modern hybrid, whether applied just to character or the whole artstyle?

    image.jpeg.f5e73d32dabbc90e3d8a4583d2d73eba.jpegimage.jpeg.6369f7e5d131d326fd092f2ea686c26c.jpeg

    I'd say maybe, but knowing Sonic Team, they do have a knack for taking what other franchises do that's good and do it all wrong. We've seen traces of them trying it with Lost World, with Modern getting shorter spines and that's it, but their "attempt" to make the world look more like the 90s games was basic geometry, flat colors and overexaggerated chibi looks for the badniks. And Sonic 4 Episode 1's execution of cel shading on the models make me almost toss my cookies. So I'm not ready to wonder what it will look like on a much larger scale.

    Spoiler

    I'll clarify that even though Zelda is all mostly one dimension/universe despite the different artstyles, it's also a bunch a different timelines and reincarnations, so having separate Links is more justified than having separate Sonics

     

  15. Now, what even is the ratio of Modern 3D fangames to Classic 3D fangames at this point? And not just the ones that've actually been finished? 

     

     

    1. Waveshocker Sigma

      Waveshocker Sigma

      There are finished ones?

    2. StaticMania

      StaticMania

      There are currently 4 classic 3D fangames.

    3. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      Well Modern has GT, Unity, etc etc. 

    4. Wraith

      Wraith

      Most fangames still use modern Sonic but that's probably more out of convenience than anything else. Generations and Forces give you a lot of premade animations to work with.

  16. All this Paper Mario/Miyamoto/Tanabe/Whoever is over party talk has given me a good reminder on what Sonic always had over Mario: It has real characters in it.

    Spoiler

     

    Most Mario game to speak of seldom build their characters up with any strong interactions or personality quirks beyond the basics, and don't bother making its world have an actual society populating it. Every other character centric spinoff is allowed to give new depths to established characters and add more to their environment because they're separate worlds from the mainline timeline, as much as people wish it were otherwise. But starring the main man himself with his name written on the title, even if it's a seprerate canon? Out of bounds; ya can't make Mario stray too far his roots.

    They're contempt with working with a cast of the same old blank slates, put there just to fulfill the same role all in the name of gameplay first. No genders, no age, no individuality; maybe just a hat if you're lucky.

     

    Say what you will of how bloated Sonic's cast is, how several characters don't fit in a kiddy/edgy cartoon mascot series, or how these characters are just as underutilized as Mario's are, but the fact remains that majority of these characters, even the ones that aren't important, have more of a purpose than just playing their part. It's not even that Mario being all mime holds it back; Sonic 3 didn't put Knuckles in as just another boss battle. There's an actual rivalry with he and Sonic, where they constantly encounter one another and gradually build up to their ultimate confrontation, without taking away from Eggman being the main threat. And nobody had to speak a word either to make that work.

    Sure, these days, it's the same old Sonic, Tails and Eggman running the show, but as Forces and TSR show, on top of his's latest comic series, SEGA isn't about to throw away anyone that's unneeded. Many characters had been banned from the canon over the years, but in most cases it comes down to said characters not being owned by SEGA. Even with the odd mandates Sonic Team enforce themselves, in the end, there are still plenty of charters still that they can work with. 

    Mario on the other had plenty of great characters that made by second parties so they can have their own spin on Mario, but still feel like they have a place in Mario's world. And yet they have no hope of using them anymore, cause they suddenly contradict what the Mario Bible demands, even when it's supposed to be a different Mario world from the start.

     

     

    TDLR: Sonic has plenty of characters legally available and ready to go, but SEGA don't use most of them often. Mario had plenty of characters with where there're many opportunities for them to be used, but Nintendo outlawed them from doing so.

      As always, Sega does what Nintendon't.😎 

      This entire situation really saddens me, though. As Paper Mario and Mario & Luigi show, the Mario franchise has a huge potential for engaging stories and memorable characters. Unfortunately, Nintendo doesn't want to be more ambitious for the sake of general appeal. Mario should be for everyone so everything has to be neutral, simple and safe.

    2. Emperor Spooky

      Interviews like these make me think that higher ups at Nintendo really didn't care much for TTYD. Sure Nintendo tends to point fingers at Super Paper Mario (Which I'm not gonna deny, seemed to affect the modern Paper Mario series as well,) but it does seem like the risks these games took were what caused the mandates that are present as of recently in the last three games.

  17. With yet another enourmous content leak, I am now 80% percent convinced that Nintendo's lack of updates for the remainder of the year and the tremendous surge in leaks go hand in hand with their recent stance on their work enviroment and Covid. They've become so utmost concerned for employee security, to a greater degree than Xbox or Sony, they had most everyone work from home and far away from their offices, that there's hardly anyone still there to watch over their own vault.

    Nintendo's overcautiousness of their people consequently comes at the expense of their works' own vulnerability, and now they have to pay the price:

      Strickerx5

      While, after a certain point, I’d like to live in a world where source code for old games are just freely available... this isn’t that way I want it to happen.

  18. So the big two got their showcases out of the way now? Has the light turned green for Nintendo to unravel their so called "lineup" for 2020's second half now? Oh wait, there's totally gonna be another State of Play in two weeks, so maybe after that??

     

    ...Ehh who are you kidding. Sony and Xbox are just gonna throw hecklings at them while they just sit their the entire time

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      I genuinely think that Nintendo focused so hard on the Switch's first few years at market that they kind of forgot to prepare the later years if the Switch was a success. They put out so many big hitters like 3D Zelda, 3D Mario, Splatoon and Mario Kart out so fast and now the upcoming line-up is rather dry. We just got AC:NL a few months ago, Paper Mario last week and Pokémon at the end of last year, but there are no major releases anywhere on the horizon. Metroid and the next Zelda are so far off. Bayonetta is kinda niche and has been silent for a long time. The pandemic has certainly thrown things off too. 2020 won't be going down in the history books as one of the most exciting years for Nintendo at all, even if they're had incredibly strong sales for AC.

    2. I Have Berry!

      The biggest draw out of any of them for me is Smash honestly came too early as well. The one thing about Ulimate that shocked me, perhaps more so than any character that got in, is that it even existed at all, and so soon. It was a six year gap from Melee to Brawl, then a seven year gap to the 3DS/Wii U games. Ultimate only happened in four, and IIRC started immediate development right after 4's DLC was done, which was under three years before it released.

      I was hyped beyond belief when it was first teased, but in hindsight, it'd been a much greater oppurtunity had they gave it at least one more year. Ultimate really could've benefited from the extra polish, whether for a few more first party reps, including some from later games like Min Min and Rex by default or more dedicated single player content. 

       

      If they made Smash the big 2020 (21 if unlucky) game alongside AC, annouce it back in '19 and then did the DLC stuff after that, the wait could've been all the more worth it.

  19. #SegaIsOverParty

  20. Can I just mention how embarassing Nintendo looks this year right next to Sony and Microsoft? And this all before the next gen stuff is even released.

    1. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      I assume they have some major-league heavy hitters planned for the holiday season, because if not, this will be far and away Switch's worst year as far as the number of quality games goes.

    2. I Have Berry!

      I Have Berry!

      Not when there's a global disease in the way they won't; they'll push it all back to 21. If they do have something, they better get on with  talking about it already.

       

      Sonic and Nintendo really must go hand in hand, cause they both like making a habit on leaving fans in the dark even if there's nothing to hide.

      “Sonic and Nintendo really must go hand in hand, cause they both like making a habit on leaving fans in the dark even if there's nothing to hide.” Cloak and dagger is a AAA industry thing in general tbh

  21. Maybe Wayforward's working on another Disney remake like Ducktales

    1. KHCast

      KHCast

      According to some leakers it’s apparently not based on a tv or movie series, but we’ll see in soon 

  22. The 2020 Mayhem comeeth!!!

    Now I'm getting what's possibly the strongest Hail storm I've ever been in. And to think we've hit the pits back in 2016.

  23. All Items set to High. Pick your most broken fighter. Mario Bros/WarioWare, Inc.

  24. The comeback to surpass the Sonic franchise, ladies and gentlemen.

    Nag on Sonic all ya like, at least he's not the one who has the nerve puts cosmetic DLC in his games, right?
