  1. It was weird having to catch the direct on the road. On one hand, best alternative to a podcast/radio station ever, but on the other hand, outside of hearing the news right when it drops, it kinda felt pointless without anyone else to talk about it with immediately before/after it. Here's hoping later directs happen on weekends or earlier on, I guess...

     

    Highlights for me:

    Spoiler
    • Super Mario Maker: SUPAH MARIO MAKER 2 BABEEEEEEE
    • Yoshi's Crafted World: The demo was pretty fun. I was disappointed that they took out the camera flipping mechanic earlier on, but the game still focuses so much on background interaction with the egg throwing, it still has the same appeal of 3D exploration in a 2D space for me. Miiight wait until I can see how complex the later levels get before buying it, though, since it feels so easy/basic for now.
    • Daemon X Machina: Demo was cool, and the controls and customization were a lot easier to come to grips with than I thought. I'm glad the story appears to be more "anime" than typical military Armored Core games seemed, but it's so half baked so far... I dunno about it. Gameplay's not perfect, so I hope to use the survey thing they talked about eventually, but it's better than what the gameplay from E3 showcased, I feel.
    • Astral Chain: First thought when I saw the helicopter was "HA, Star Fox, yes!", but then they showed off the human designs and my interest fell off a cliff. Then I saw the combat and guessed it was a Platinum game, which picked it back up again slightly. But then the the cheesy monologues started and the director names were popping up, and I had the stupidest grin on my face at that point. This is gonna be one of those Platinum games - wild rides from start to finish, twists and turns galore, and an ample dose of earnest cheese to back it up. Calling it. Even if it doesn't end up being one of the best Platinum games, as long as it hits those criteria, I'm sold. (Also 2019 release!!!?!)
    • Link's Awakening remake: I'm cool with the art style, but I wish it wasn't a remake. That's about it, really. If I wanted to play Link's Awakening, I'd play the Gameboy version first, so to have the first top-down Zelda in the Switch's lineup be wasted on a mere visual rehaul of an older game feels like a waste of resources to me. Hopefully the art styles of future games are just as varied, though; that's always been a part of the appeal of the 3D games to me, so a constant rotation of aesthetic differences for the newer 2D games would be really cool to see. Just as long as they're not always chibi, at least.

     

  2. I was ambushed/chased by a wild Toby Fox coming home and it gave me a right spook
     

    I'll get around to playing Deltarune someday dude just let me get some rest for now good gravy

      I only hope it'll appease his hunger for the shitpost long enough for me to sneak by again tomorrow, or I'm gonna have to find a new road to take to work from now on

  3. Oh, more Star Fox content for Starlink, that's cool.

      It'd be funny if that's what the rumours had been pointing towards and it's just that the details were wrong lol

  4. 15 year old me when frozen was coming out: "it'd be cool if a sequel dived further into elsa's powers and expanded the world with more mythology/elemental users... And they made it an action/superhero movie, as well...?"

    *it actually happens*

      And if that purple fire that's surrounding her at one point means anything, looks like fans also got their new villain who's a fire witch that mirrors Elsa's power.

    This is Pixar?

    This is Disney+???

      I quite enjoy this short! A clever social commentary about women in what are typically male-dominated workplaces. Plus, it's rather cute~

      I'm not sure what all the fuss is about here...?

    2. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      Well for one, Pixar movies can be pretty... sterile when it comes to social commentary, imo

      And the other... uh...

      > Pricks

      > Kiss our ass

      > 100% off joke

      On top of being made for Disney+, which I heard was going to be aimed at children first and foremost. All that on top of Disney even publishing this in the first place, as well.


      And hey, my first thought was that it was a crazy good short, as well; great message with a cool angle. I'm just really surprised it's even a thing under these specific conditions, is all

    The LEGO Movie

    Watched the second movie, and man am I seriously split on what to think about it. For reference, the first movie is one of my favorite animated movies of all time as a lego fan, for all the comedy, brilliant animation, and fanservice, but especially for containing an allegory to a parent and a kid playing with legos, and what it meant for the movie, the toy, and the audience as a whole at the end of the day. It was basically the best Lego movie we could have asked for, so hearing that the sequel was going to be dealing with a brother and sister angle, and seeing some of that potential already paying off in the trailers, ("Missed me!" "No I did NOT", the increasing grit of the boy's toys vs the unabashedly poppy girls toys, and her eventually tending towards the cooler side just so that she could fit in with his world better) made me reeeeaaally hopeful that this movie would hit most, or at the very least some of the first movie's high notes, but for sibling relationships. In that regard... this movie kinda falls flat. The story going on in the real world works, I guess, but it doesn't go as far as the first movie does with the strained father/son relationship at all, which feels a lot lighter and less meaningful as a result, and the movie kinda feels like it sabotages itself with it's own plot threads at every turn. Rather than building up everything around a central theme that could relate to the children's conflict in the real world, it convoluted the film with different plot threads (either barely related to the theme or didn't even bother trying), underutilized certain characters that deal with that theme and overemphasizing more superfluous ones, (*cough*QueenWateveriwannabe/Batman*cough*) or even threw the rules of the world on it's head because... reasons? I dunno. But on the other hand... I loved the first movie not only because of it's allegory towards the real world, but also because the Lego world worked on it's own as it's semi-independent world, as rather than treating all the characters as puppets where nothing matters, it's more a relationship between two worlds where one is influenced by the other... (and if anything, this movie doubles down on that angle to the point of absurdity, honestly) And in that regard, as a sequel, this movie is... kinda perfect in that way? It goes all over the place with it's storyline, throwing a couple twists, turns, and new characters here and there to keep it enjoyable, and builds off the established characters of Emmet and Lucy in a pretty great way, without even feeling like the typical "Oh we gotta make a sequel; quick, let's throw some tension in between the main couple of the first movie so that we can up the stakes of the plot! Will they stay together, or NOT?!?" cash grab movie. ... I mean, it kind of is. It's almost there. But it doesn't feel like that; the character progression feels natural and carried over from where the first movie left off, the conflict never feels arbitrary for the sake of soap-opera esque drama, and the messages on display are just as wholesome as the first movie's for a lot of the characters. Throw that together with a rollercoaster of a musical, a good add-on message to the first movie, (even in song form) and some good jokes and writing, and... yeah, it's a pretty good sequel to the first? Not the best, as I felt the script was seriously lacking this time around and a lot of visual gags had already been used in the first, so it's more of the same... but still, not bad at all. So, I dunno. On one hand I don't think the movie could have ever lived up to my wildest hopes for the theming of the movie*, so in that regard I can kinda accept the movie for what it is as a small sequel to the first's characters and world, and enjoy it for what it was... but the thing is, they do touch on some of this stuff and potential, if only for a moment, but also integrate it so poorly into the movie as a whole it kinda sticks out, as well. I don't feel like I should take it too seriously, but on the other hand they try hard enough to make it a thing that it's hard to ignore. So once all's said and done, I guess I enjoyed it well enough to get some entertainment from the characters, but I wouldn't put it up there with the greats. If anything, it's helped me realize all the more how great the original really was, instead. Obviously this was the highlight of the first movie, so it's kinda cheating, but look at it The acting is subtle, the message is heartwarming and inspiring, but it's so well layered and incorporated into the story and movie itself it's almost incredible. Everything that has to do with Emmet and President Business is separated from the real world, everything that has to do with the father and son is separated from the lego world, all the relevant words and thoughts the two worlds share with each other are said simultaneously, in their own unique context, and the characters and their messages compound onto each other to form an almost profound message to us, the audience, about creativity, about self worth, and about kindness to others altogether. It's just such an expertly crafted scene, but it's also worth pointing out how well it ties into the characters themselves without detracting from the main focus of the real world conflict, as well. I missed it on my original viewing, so I was a bit confused on how Emmet's words related to President Business, and why he ended up so swayed by the same message the son had, but if you look back, he has a downright distaste for the concept of a "special", if only because he was never called the special. He's a business man, probably self made, and his distaste for participation trophies shows that he puts value in the effort individuals use to build themselves up, but also probably because of a lack of general appreciation from everyone else. What Emmet decided to say to him, ended up being exactly what he needed to hear. Maybe his desperation for validity even seeped into his want for perfection, because if it wasn't perfect in his own eyes, what worth could it even have otherwise? The characters build up to messages, the messages complement other characters and their themes, and the movie is basically an expertly crafted tango of meaningful purpose... while also being a fantastic comedy movie about a zany, unlimited building system and it's legacy. That's insane. I liked the second movie well enough, but it really makes it clear that there's no touching the original in my eyes... and that's fine. I hoped for something a tad more ambitious when I heard Lord and Miller were writing the movie again, buuuuut I'm probably an outlier on that one. It was innocent enough, and added onto the original's characters pretty well, so it really isn't that bad of an end result for a studio cash-grab, honestly. Not like they'll be able to milk the universe for more movies much longer, anyways...
  7. It's cool to see Steven Universe is actually finished by now. It may not have been the most engaging story to follow along, but honestly, seeing how much Rebecca Sugar struggled to air sections of the show itself, much less probably selling modern-day CN on the concept and keeping it afloat in the first place, it's just... really cool to see it actually reach a conclusion, at its own pace, with the original team, and the creator at the helm. It's what TV should be at its best: a piece of art that's allowed the room to breath and finish what it started, even if it's not the biggest moneymaker or hottest kid on the block. And at the end of the day, that's the only thing that matters imo, even with the hiatuses.

    Also, good ending. I can see why people would be wierded out that it just... stops like that, but I saw it coming a mile away with how the show works, so it was just as satisfying as I was hoping it'd be, even with how predictable it'd go down and all. Great climax, resolution, and bookend for the relaxed fun and wholesome messages the show was all about, imo.

  8. Yep, Mob Psycho continues to be my favorite thing

    The fact that it's apparently ended makes me all the more excited to see how it wraps up. Man, I wish shows like MHA or OPM did the same; obviously it depends on the writers, but a short series always sounds like it'll be much better crafted as a story than a longer one will be.

      That's why I like Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo and FMA. They're just tightly knit, well crafted stories.

    Metroid Prime 4 Announced for Nintendo Switch

    It's not even like Nintendo saying that is all that uncommon in the industry, either. Sony always "plans on supporting ___ for ten years"; doesn't stop them from releasing successors beforehand at the typical 5-6 year lifecycle.
  10. HMMM

    Star Fox Gran Prix babeee

  11. > Metroid Prime 4 is getting completely delayed, and redeveloped from the ground up by Retro Studios now, instead of Bandai Namco

    HEEEEEEEELLLLLLPPPPHAHAHAHA

    1. Polkadi~♪

      Polkadi~♪

      Hey, this can be a good thing.

      If the original project truly wasn't good enough, then hopefully this new revamped version would be better.

      The delay can hurt, but I'd rather a quality game over any others.

    2. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      @Polkadi~♪ Yeah I know, but whoof. I know Nintendo's been a stickler for "quality" in its lifetime, but how bad could the game have been for them to straight up ether the entire game, and bring back the OG team in a mad dash to save face in three-four years time? Was it a RoL tier disaster or something?

    3. Polkadi~♪

      Polkadi~♪

      You can never be too sure. Perhaps we may see what the game originally was in the future, because this has become a very interesting development story. Until then, we're all left with the confusion of wondering, "What was so bad?"

       

      Now it's like Metroid Prime and DOOM share a lot in common, such as their fourth games, the newest addition to the franchise after so many years, getting scrapped and rebuilt again because the original version wasn't good enough. Hopefully, like DOOM, Metroid Prime 4 turns out to be a smash hit.

    4. Vertical Snoop [D.K.]

      Vertical Snoop [D.K.]

      You're awfully quick to assume the game was god-awful and that this is a "mad dash to save face".

    5. Polkadi~♪

      Polkadi~♪

      From the wording of the announcement, the decision to change course of development was planned over time, it was only now that the change was official.

      And it wasn't "god-awful," just not up to Nintendo's standards. So maybe it was incredibly average, no one surely knows.

    6. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      Is there another way to describe it? The OG team who actually worked on the prime games is nearly gone by now, the game was in development by a completely different studio and was a major tentpole release Nintendo was betting on, and now this video comes out. I'm not sure I follow?

      @Polkadi~♪ Nah, I don't think so. Tantabe is the director of the series, so of course he'd go wherever the project went, but just up and announcing that they're "restarting development", in this video, present tense, makes it seem like it happened rn, not gradually over the course of development. The lack of footage and showcasing by Nintendo is a good indication that they weren't satisfied with the game's progress, yeah, and I'm not saying this literally was decided over night; these things take time, after all. It's just... the rumored canceled direct for last month, the lack of Retro job listings along these lines... eeh...

      Oh well, knocking it off a 2019 release may certainly knock Big N's rep down for the year, especally if Bayo 3 is to be delayed with it. At least there's around 3 other major IP games on track for '19 releases to fill the gap.

       

      And I'm just glad that Retro is still alive.

    11. Yeow

      @JokerJovahexeonJoranvexeon Also worth noting Other M was creatively spearheaded by Yoshio Sakamoto, who was responsible for a lot of the controversial design choices with that game. (Although he did redeem himself a bit with Samus Returns.)

      With that said, Tanabe (main producer of Prime series) recently produced Federation Force, and is also responsible for the recent spate of Paper Mario games starting with Sticker Star, so things are still up in the air...

      Nintendo's also the same company that released Metroid 1, 2, Super, Fusion, Prime 1, Zero Mission, Prime 2, Prime Pinball, Prime Hunters and Prime 3. I still don't get your point.

      You saying because Nintendo greenlighting a single game like Other M means that Metroid would be better off with SEGA or something?

      They've got an enormous amount of pristine content to alleviate the worries over a game as old as Other M. Also, if we're really gonna spin it that way, we might as well never trust any big corporation company. Again, it'd make more sense if you were referring to Team Ninja. @Tornado

      Well guess what: Nobody got the joke. Poe's Law exists for a reason; if one doesn't bluntly state that they're joking, no one will think its a joke. The fact that Metroid Prime 4 is delayed is no joke.

      And frankly, "they made Other M" jokes is as timely as "they made Sonic 06" jokes.

      but seriously fuck Nintendo for putting out Other M

      Actually, it seems like literally the first person who posted after I said it seemed to have gotten it. I'm sorry that you think others are so stupid that you think "Team Ninja actually made Other: M, not Retro Studios" is enlightening information, though.

      I made the same exact joke when I saw the news in marcello's status

      Gabe liked it

      I don't understand what the hangup is don't we criticise Nintendo for stupidly small stuff all the time on here for sport why is this apparently a big deal now for a joke being somehow misread

      I'm not implying others are stupid. But yeah, its really just me not getting the full picture here: can't start a fight when I don't know why.

       

      So I'll just me make like dat bass, and drop it. 

    24. Jovahexeon Fitzroy

      Jovahexeon Fitzroy

      Eh,  the joke's conveyance and tone wasn't quite keen enough for everyone to get that it's a joke. 

      That's just one of the things of chatting online. 

  12. Also it's crazy that, outside of a couple of games of Smash, Celeste is the only game of 2018 that I've played so far

    Never got around to reordering God of War, have Spiderman but never opened it, RDR2, Spyro, Astrobot and PSVR, Forza 4, Subnautica, Hollow Knight, Starlink, Just Cause 4, Megaman 11 and the Megaman and Kingdom Hearts collections...

    On one hand I feel like I'm letting gaming as a whole slip by me along with the conversation, but listening to the Celeste ost again and remembering how good it was... I dunno. Doesn't really feel like I need to be in a rush after something as good as that, y'know? Just hope I get the drive to play for the sake of it again, though. Not ready to be a lapsed gamer yet, I don't think...

      Uhhhh nah, just Spiderman and Hollow Knight atm, lmao. They're a backlog in that I wanna play them, but I'm not gonna buy games I know I don't have the time/interest to play yet unless they're on a crazy sale or something.

      GoW I paid for but never came, though. Waited like a full month and a half before the seller got back with me about a refund, and at that point I really couldn't be arsed to try eBay again. By now I have money, but the interest... never really came back tbh

      I wanna, but I also started Ori and the Blind Forest way back at the start of the year, and despite how amazing it looked, I just... Didn't see much of a reason to explore the map like I usually do in Metroidvania games? Put it down a couple hours into it.

      Exploring is one of my all time favorite things to do in video games so I dunno what's wrong with me atm. I'm just waiting for it to come back so I can do the game justice eventually.

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (Lord & Miller, 2018)

    I got pretty worried about how this movie would end up after so many Spider-people were revealed, but holy CRAP this movie blew my expectations out of the water Miles' origin story is the full focus of the story, which Wraith already summed up pretty well, but I wasn't expecting the movie to go that hard into the story, considering *everything* the movie was already dealing with, multiple spidermen, alternate dimensions, and whatnot. Everything feeds into the arc, everything, and it's downright insane how they packed all the elements together to weave his story like that. Villains that looked like they were throwaway fanservice from the outset, (I'm not familiar with the comics so I dunno if that twist was anticipated or not, but I let out an audible "WHOA" when I looked up and saw it in the theater) Peter B. Parker's entire role contributing to the origin rather than taking away like I feared it might, the alternate spiderpeople all feeding into the theme of expectations and pressure in his story - pretty much anything that could be potentially detracting from the point of the movie just... doesn't happen, or is so touch-and-go it never feels like it's lost focus of what it's about at all, or moves on to something more interesting once the origin has pretty much been "established". Unfortunately I wasn't really in the best disposition/situation to really absorb the movie or anything, so I haven't really had the chance for it to really resonate with me yet... but man am I impressed by how well they pulled this specific angle off while coexisting with the entire multiverse gimmick, even if I wasn't able to be particularly engrossed by it. Easily the best Spiderman movie of the lot with how tightly the story is told and conveyed. Easily. Some spoilery thoughts on the side as well, but
