  1. Hey, just in case you guys are still a bit bitter about the National Dex:

  2. THEORY TIME:

    What if the popularity of video game remakes (not counting retellings in a sequel or some sort) was because of Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen?

    1. Mr Loopone

      Nah... Remakes existed as far back as Pong, Space Invaders and them sort of old games, confusingly they got remakes and sequels. Even if in a Nintendo point of view, they can be tracked as early as Super Mario All-Stars (there were earlier ones but can't recall ATM, I know that they were two Wild Gunman games however I don't think they were connected) and that collection did really well, a big seller for the SNES.

      A lot of the remakes existed on the ground that we have better hardware, let's remake this game on the next console/home computer/arcade hardware. Atari, Taito, Enix and a few others were known for this. There was even a case where Sega remade Monaco GP on the Sega Saturn in a collection in Japan and the only modern way of playing it, a game that has yet to be properly preserved in its original form. It's not emulation as the game uses different pre-1975 arcade hardware, as in not using ROM chips.

      Breakout was one of the earlier cases as it was remade as Super Breakout, the latter can be played today however the original Breakout has yet to be preserved (on about the arcade version, not the Atari 2600 version).

      They were far from the first big name ones. It has been a well publishers have gone back to all the way back in the early 1990s when 16 bit platforms could make substantial gains on the previous generation.

      The Wonderswan lived and died because of the exclusive Final Fantasy remakes that it had (and the exclusive Final Fantasy III remake that was ultimately cancelled) for example.

  3. So…why was Commander Keen hated again? I’m not familiar with the original game.

    1. tailsBOOM!

      tailsBOOM!

      It has nothing to do with the original game.  The original game was a classic platformer, and was led by the 8-year-old genius Billy Blaze (The grandson of Wolfenstein's BJ Blazkowicz and father of DOOM's Doomguy), who became known as Commander Keen.  He went on trips to Mars as a hero.  Here's a video with some gameplay for comparison's sake:

       

      What they showed at E3 was nothing like the originals.  When you replace the main protagonist and that's nOT the most complained about thing, you know you messed up.  The artstyle is way off, the gameplay doesn't match the series payed homage to, and to add insult to injury to it's fanbase who waited 18 years for a new game, it's a freemium game that has a lot of microtransactions.   Fans wanted a true game, not this.

      When you resurrect a loooooong dead franchise and make it a freemium mobile game, that’s never gonna go down well. Especially when it doesn’t even resemble the older titles.

      The End.

  4. I just remembered to Crash Bandicoot related things that I'm surprised Caddicarus hasn't covered yet:

    1. A Crash Bandicoot fan game called Tiki Quest (with a rival named Clyde).

    2. An episode of the parody cartoon MAD called "Franklin and Crash", which is a parody of Franklin and Bash.

  5. @Ernest the Panda I'm taking an online college class for food safety, and I just thought of something:

    What would be a good name for a Pokémon based off a Commis Chef that liked keeping food safe?

  6. Wanna know what grinds my gears? People were expecting an FE16 character and a Gen VIII Pokémon in Smash before we knew anything about either of the games.

    1. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      I don't see how that's odd, specifically Pokemon. Greninja and Incineroar were both unknown to the public when their development started.

    2. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      Didn't that happen for the last DLC for the last Smash game, that they added a Fire Emblem character who's game wasn't even out?

    3. Perkilator

      @Thigolf

      @The Tenth Doctor

      But the difference is:

      -Smash 4 was out after X and Y, and Sakurai was given concepts of Grenibja before the former's announcement. In addition, Fates was announced before Smash 4's first DLC character, Mewtwo, was released (in other words, plenty of time for Corrin to start development).

      -Smash Ultimate was announced over a year and a half after Sun and Moon came out. Sakurai was likely given concepts to its starters when the project plans for Ultimate were underway, as Decidueye was going to be the Gen VII rep.

    4. Wraith

      Wraith

      That's not weird. They've done it before

    5. SupahBerry

      Plus, this happened as early as Melee where Roy debuted a year before making his real starring role in Binding Blade.

    6. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      Where's the difference? Sakurai could've gotten S&S concepts in November last year and would still have plenty of time to release a character at the end of 2019 or the beginning of 2020, after S&S is out. The only difference is that the gap between the game coming out and the Smash character getting released is shorter.

    7. Perkilator

      Okay, maybe I should've worded it better; in Marth' and Roy's case, nobody outside Japan even knew Fire Emblem existed prior to Melee.

      In Gen VIII's and FE16's case, they were announced in 2017; Smash Ultimate was announced on March 2018. The former two didn't even show anything at that time, yet people were already setting their expectations for a rep from the former two.

      Three Houses was announced in the same E3 2018 Direct as Ultimate, so there's at least that excuse. Sword and Shield, on the other hand? We saw our first proper glimpse of it when Joker was slated to release in Smash before the end of April.

    8. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      Oooooooh, you're talking base game.

      Yeah, I don't think that was likely at all. Not unprecedented (although Roy was just a clone), but unlikely. 

  7. Mornin’! Banjo may be getting a game anytime soon, but he’s officially a character in Smash. So I think I need to bring this meme back:

     

  8. NOTE: DESIGNED BY OFFICIAL MARVEL EMPLOYEES In case wasn't obvious, graphic design is their passion.
  9. Well, controversial decisions aside...anyone hoping for a Wooloo shearing minigame?

    1. TCB

      TCB

      like the furfrou trimming thing from x&y? yeah i can see something like that

    2. SupahBerry

      SupahBerry

      For one matter, I've heard it's actually bad for real life sheep to go so long without getting sheared. How'd you feel if couldn't shave or cut your hair for several months if not years? Sheep can't "shed" their wool, you know.

    3. Perkilator

      Perkilator

      @SupahBerry Exactly. I even read that when PETA tweeted about Wooloo back when it was revealed.

  10. I just realized; Luminary’s render for Smash Ultimate looks an awful lot like Riku’s KH3 render.

    1. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      Ngh do not compare Eleven to Riku lmao

    2. Perkilator

      Perkilator

      @JosepHenry Dread it…run from it…Riku arrives all the same.

    3. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      Jk 

      Eleven is so bland tho lol

  11. @JosepHenry Speaking of retro modes in Switch games, did you catch a glimpse of the one in the new Mario & Sonic game? I caught it for myself when I went to its E3 booth.

    1. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      Oh coooool I wonder what types of mini games they will add for this mode.

      This game is already looking miles better than any previous game.

    2. Perkilator

      Perkilator

      @JosepHenry Definitely, and it shows.

  12. Hey, so dataminers just discovered that in SM, GF were using multiple models for a character to make sure they get from one place to another.

    1. Soniman

      Soniman

      Why no just teleport the model where it's needed?

    2. SupahBerry

      SupahBerry

      The questions we should be asking are why do these characters either get to warp to different locations when people's backs are turned or exists in more than one plane at the same time?

    3. tailsBOOM!

      tailsBOOM!

      We've actually known this for sometime, it's one of the reasons I'm extra upset about them not bringing all the past Pokemon because it's probably due to stuff like that.

  13. I just tried out the Sword and Shield demo. It was great fun, but the sound quality was kinda...shit.

    1. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      Huh, so they likely are running into space issues. This might try to explain why they’re cutting Pokemon. Poor audio quality is a common trait of Switch games that are bursting at the seams in terms of file size. The developers compress the hell out of the audio in order to save every bit of space they can.

      Though, at this point I think GF needs to start considering a mandatory patch. I know they don’t want to cut off people who don’t have a internet connection but the Switch’s underpowered nature is becoming more and more prevalent by the day. They’re going to need to start utilizing such things to stay somewhat current. 

  14. I took a couple pics of the Zelda display at E3, and my mom pointed out that the rocks look like Hawaiian Rolls.

      Hmmm not sure I like this tbh. The mild inconvenience of having to leave a gym to heal your Mons gave this lazy mofo extra motivation to try not to fuck up
